Do you want to look at the epitome of incompetent leadership? Look no further, then, than the leadership found in New York, particularly in New York City, where their already insane criminal “justice” reform of a revolving jail door has been amped to 11 as a result of this Chinese coronavirus crisis.
Due to this pandemic, New York has released over 1,500 inmates as a result of fears of spreading the virus to these criminals and having them die before they believe they should. And this decision has been about as bad as you expect it to be. What exactly do you expect when Gotham’s prisons release the inmates?
According to the New York Post, “at least 50 of the 1,500 inmates cut loose… have already landed back in jail – and in some cases were set free yet again, according to police sources and records.”
Keep in mind, this doesn’t mean that just 50 of the 1,500 were “bad people” and that the rest are “good people” who have done nothing wrong (as a Leftist might believe from this). This is 50 people that THE POLICE HAVE CAUGHT. The rest are still on the loose, likely with many seeking to commit further crimes (because that’s kind of what they do) but have yet to be caught and rearrested.
Let’s take a look at some of the released inmates and see how they’ve adjusted to life on the outside, shall we?
First, we have James Little, a 40-year-old man released from Rikers Island amid the epidemic on March 28.
Little went about a week without seemingly committing any crimes before attempting to rob a bank in Gramarcy Park, wearing the usual robber attire of a mask and gloves and slipping a note to the teller instructing them to give him money. The police arrested him the following day (Little did not get any money from the bank) and linked him to two other bank robberies in late January of this year and late December of last year, leaving with a thousand dollars in each of those two robberies.
Now, what exactly did Little do to land him in jail in the first place? Well, two things. One, he served a 20-year sentence after having pleaded guilty to a murder in Coney Island when he was just 15 in 1995, serving 7-to-life and being released on parole in 2016. However, the second incident that has landed him in jail is a charge for strangulation earlier THIS MARCH before having been released on the 28th. So not exactly the best person these lunatics could have chosen to release.
Let’s now look at some other cases.
Next, we have Darryl Naser, a 25-year-old man who was rearrested FIVE TIMES in April after having been released in late March. Naser “was first jailed on charges of grand larceny and possession of stolen credit cards before his coronavirus-related release. He was arrested again April 1 on a burglary charge, and on April 4, April 6 and April 8 on drug possession charges,” according to the NY Post.
Of course, he was released without bail each time because of the virus (or, rather, because of the actually unbelievable idiocy of the mayor).
We also have a 32-year-old man named Victor Castillo, who was “arrested three times since being set free on March 24”, with two of those times having been criminal trespassing and the other time for breaking a bodega window in an effort to steal cash. He is still a free man.
Charles Abbriano is a 52-year-old man with many low-level crimes, originally arrested for various theft cases before being released. The following week, he was arrested for petty larceny… and rereleased. He was then arrested again on April 9th attempting to steal a packed furniture truck with three other men.
Pedro Hernandez is a 45-year-old man with two violent felonies and five misdemeanor convictions. He was arrested originally for trying to steal an electric bike before being released due to the incompetence of the state’s leaders. He was rearrested for burglarizing an apartment but, and you’ll never guess it, he was again released from prison.
Daeshawn Sharperson, probably one of the worst people I will discuss (but not the worst. I’ll get to him in a moment), is a 31-year-old man who admitted to torching his girlfriend’s door, pleading guilty to criminal mischief, dodging felony charges and receiving a four-month sentence. Of course, his sentence was cut short because of this lunacy and eight days later, he returned to his girlfriend’s apartment, reportedly threatening to kill her family before attacking a passenger on a bus… twice.
Thankfully, he is as of yet being held in Rikers Island, but I doubt it’ll be long before he’s out on the streets again (and perhaps gets the opportunity to make good on his threat).
Wilmer Colindres is a 39-year-old man who was charged for attacking a DHS officer; while in jail, was charged with forcible touching after grabbing a physician’s rear; and was charged with assaulting a sergeant two days after being released… and has since been released again.
Finally, the worst scum I will talk about (because I believe I’ve made my point with the other “minor” released offenders) is Robert Pondexter, who was originally in jail for rape and drug-related charges, was released because the leaders in New York are idiots, and was back in court 10 days after being released for… wanna take a guess?
Sexually assaulting and attempting to rape another woman. He was seemingly also using crack by the time police caught him.
“Pondexter had been walking across the street from the Concern Heights Apartment building, a supportive housing development on the block, when he allegedly grabbed the woman by the collar and pulled her into a school parking lot,” according to the NY Post.
The woman said that Pondexter forced her to perform oral sex and demanded she take off her pants, but she was able to kick him away and escape.
Suffice to say, De Blasio is an absolute moron (at best). Releasing thousands of inmates onto the streets is never a good idea and what we are seeing is what was bound to occur: many of those inmates are committing more crimes and being rearrested because of those crimes. And these are just the people the police are managing to catch. I can’t imagine what the others are doing as well.
With the insanity that was their criminal justice reform BEFORE releasing these inmates like this, I hope the people of New York are waking up and realizing that the leadership they are voting for is negligent at best and destructive at worst and hopefully, they will vote against this insanity to continue (but I doubt this will happen).
