We’ve all heard the term, “crime doesn’t pay.” That is, however, no longer true in New York. The Empire State is planning to eliminate bail for many criminals, including those who have been found guilty of criminally negligent homicide, aggravated assault on a child under the age of 11, and selling drugs on school grounds. The new law will go into effect January 1st, but may be applied retroactively, as well. In light of this, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has come up with a plan to entice accused lawbreakers to show up for their court dates: he will offer them gift cards and tickets to baseball games. De Blasio said, “if small incentives” lead to “speedier trials” his pay-the-perp plan would be “smart policy,” even though the city has no idea how much the plan would cost.
Rep. Brian Kolb (R-N.Y.) begs to differ, saying the program “threatens public safety and is a disservice to law-abiding citizens.” He added, “With every law that New York Democrats roll back, our streets become less safe.” Kolb also noted, “Their platform that caters to convicts and protects hardened criminals puts the rest of us in danger.”
That’s the point, Rep. Kolb.
Democrats love criminals. That’s why they reward them for committing crimes. That is neither a hyperbolic nor preposterous statement. It is a fact. It is why they welcome illegal aliens and want to shower them with benefits at the same time they want to tax the hell out of American citizens in fly-over country. (And take away their guns). They want to replace the more independent and therefore troublesome Middle-American voters with more dependable voters who owe them for excusing their trespasses…and giving them free shit, as well.
I can see de Blasio offering incentives to accused criminals on the basis of their alleged crimes. “Come to your trial and receive the following rewards*:
-jaywalker: $10 Subway gift card
-selling drugs to minors: $50 Outback Steakhouse gift card
-aggravated assault on a child under 11 years of age: pair of tickets to a New York Mets game
-criminally negligent homicide: 75” Samsung 4K Smart UHD television
*other prizes available upon request!”
The Big Apple: where crime does pay…’cuz de Blasio does, too!
