NY lawmakers oppose racist effort to amend bail reform law (Left-wing civil war over crime)

Members of the state Assembly vowed Wednesday to oppose a state Senate plan to revise New York’s controversial bail reform law, calling the effort “racist” and “bulls–t.”

“I don’t need any fake-ass legislators who are allowing fear-mongering to try and go after our people,” said Assemblyman Michael Blake (D-Bronx).

“Right now we have a racist, institutionalized system that for centuries has done everything possible to go after black and brown communities … We are not going back on bail.”

Assemblyman Walter Mosley (D-Brooklyn) also said that “we’re not about rolling back something that was a blemish on our society.”

“They want to go back and re-transform and do this bulls–t legislation, so sometimes you’ve got to be profane to be profound,” he said.

About a dozen lawmakers — most of them members of the Assembly’s Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic & Asian Legislative Caucus — rallied in Albany’s Capitol building in response to the revelation that a group of state senators has been meeting in secret to draw up amendments to the bail law that went into effect Jan. 1.

The law, which bars judges from setting bail for most defendants charged with misdemeanors and non-violent felonies, has sparked outrage over revolving-door arrests and the release of people charged with homicides not covered by its provisions.

The proposals under consideration include entirely eliminating cash bail but giving judges the ability to lock up defendants deemed “persistent offenders” who pose potential danger to the community.

“This system builds in more discretion for judges while making sure if they want to remand someone, that there will be a really compelling reason to do so,” said state Sen. Todd Kaminsky, who’s been part of the closed-door discussions.

“We have really been trying to listen to all sides. We’ve listened to the prosecutors and the officers on the front lines who have been telling us what they’ve been seeing.”

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx), a staunch supporter of the bail law, didn’t attend the rally but told reporters afterward that it’s “too early” to consider any changes because “no one has given me, you know, real, hard data” about how it’s working.

1. Democrats are becoming the party of illegal immigrants, criminals and socialists. ...

Over the long haul this could mean the end of the Democratic Party.

Either that or the end of this nation.
