De Blasio’s ‘No Bail’ Policy for Teens

De Blasio’s ‘No Bail’ Policy for Teens

It would appear that New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio’s new policy of emptying the city’s jails in favor of dumping teenage criminals onto the city streets will begin in earnest on Saturday.

According to the New York Post the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice will also “significantly” expand the number of adults eligible for the Mayor’s “no-bail” Supervised Release Program.

The Mayor’s desire to “more than triple” the current “no-bail” program of teens charged with serious crimes like armed robbery, assault and burglary, has drawn a firestorm of criticism from top prosecutors all over the city.

Nevertheless de Blasio’s policy changes which take effect this coming weekend allowing defendants between the ages of 16 and 19 to qualify for the program’s Youth Engagement Track, which is now capped at age 17, except in Brooklyn.

The program currently covers “high-risk” teens charged with misdemeanors or nonviolent felonies, however on Saturday all that changes to include first- and second-degree robbery, assault and burglary. Those offenses usually involve using deadly force upon a victim by brandishing a weapon, for the sole purpose of inflicting bodily injury.

Miriam Popper, executive director of diversion initiatives for the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice acknowledged “Based on 2017 bail numbers for the affected ages and charges, these changes should more than triple the number of defendants eligible for the Youth Engagement Track.”

De Blasio’s policy raises the guidelines for a defendant to officially be labeled a “high risk” for getting rearrested, by nearly doubling the number of “risk points” needed for that designation, from at least 5 to at least 9, which means that a young thug can virtually go on a mini crime spree, without going to jail, if he stays within those guidelines.

Also a defendant no longer needs to prove any “community ties” before arraignment to qualify for supervised release.

The expansion of the city’s Supervised Release Program is part of de Blasio’s controversial plan in shutting down Rikers Island jail complex, along with his long-shot presidential bid.

However, on Wednesday city prosecutors warned the City Council that de Blasio’s “get-out-of-jail” free card would endanger the entire criminal justice system, beginning with witnesses reluctantly coming forward to report crimes, or identify assailants, for fear of reprisals.

Bridget Brennan, the special narcotics prosecutor in New York City also warned that de Blasio has failed to allocate enough funding in his 2020 budget, concerning ­foreign cartels smuggling drugs into the city.

“New Yorkers will be shocked and dismayed come Jan. 1, 2020, when they wake up and discover that bail reform is not limited to low-level, nonviolent offenders,” Brennan said.

“State legislators have mandated the release of thousands of defendants charged with a multitude of serious crimes, including top narcotics crimes, with no possibility of a jail bail setting.”

Adding, “Those who stand to benefit . . . include members of ­foreign cartels sent to oversee million-dollar narcotics transactions, operators of large-scale drug packing mills that churn out tens of thousands of doses of heroin and fentanyl . . . and doctors who fuel addiction by illegally exchanging prescriptions for cash.”

Staten Island DA Michael McMahon also weighted in on de Blasio’s policy changes stating the new law shows a “serious lack of compassion for victims” since their names and contact information will now be disclosed to defense teams.

“Not only do these provisions threaten the safety of victims and witnesses, significantly more time, resources, and — most importantly,  funding will be required to ensure their safety throughout the criminal-justice process,” said McMahon.

      When a whack job like Diblasshole and his minions attempt to enact something such as this, endangering thousands of people’s lives, they need to be frog walked out the door and a size twelve planted in their dumb asses. The citizens of the USA have the RIGHT to overthrow corrupt and inept governing bodies. It’s about time sane people say ” enough”.

    This makes no sense at all! What is the deterrent to these kids if the only consequence is a slap on the wrist, “Just don’t do it again”?DeBlasio is nuts, but he knows he’s protected well, no doubt by armed security. Sick.

    When you push something underground, into a black market, you lose control.
    All drugs should be legalized and then controlled. That would take most of the money out of it and the cartels would collapse.
    Then access could be controlled as well as potency and quality.

    The problem is not the polititions. The problem is racist fake religious fundamentalist that worship an imaginary dead white man in the sky. NYC is probably the most racist city in the United States. The prison system is full of young people of color drugs and violence is the only way to survive. What about creating programs for these kids when they get out of prison? How about job placement and mental health counseling? The prison industry is big $$$ in NYC. Many of those offenders are these for minor drug crimes. Show some damn compassion you Jesus/Devil/trump worshipping fool.

    Oh remember he also wants your guns so that when theses guys show up at your front door you won’t be able to do a dam thing about it.

    Make sure you keep a good video and written inventory of what you once owned, so once they are gone you can hand a copy to the police officer.

    Oh and if you did have guns relics or unloaded gun’s don’t add those to your inventory, sense in the northeastern states you will probably end up in court to justify why you had those, they will punish you harshly.
