A New York City man who’s now been arrested 139 times thanked Democrats for guaranteeing his immediate release despite repeatedly swiping hundreds of dollars from unsuspecting subway commuters since the state’s new bail reform law went into effect Jan. 1. Charles Barry, 56, has been arrested six times since the start of this year. He’s been released each time without having to post bail under New York’s new bail reform law since his alleged offenses were nonviolent, the New York Daily News reported. In the past, Barry’s served several stints in state prison and has a lengthy record, including six felonies, 87 misdemeanors and 21 missed court hearings,

Comments:

Arrested six times since Jan 1st. This means he has probably stolen 25 times to be caught six times.
In any sane place, this guy would have earned a lifetime stay in prison a couple of decades ago.
But, in NYC, they just don't care at all about protecting the honest citizens from these literal career criminals.
Literal insanity in their "legal system".

Since the actual legal system clearly has zero interest in protecting citizens, this is the kind of situation which pressures people to take the law into their own hands. Perhaps a group like the old Guardian Angles needs to form with the idea of pounding some sense into guys like Mr. Barry, at a location selected to be absent cameras and witnesses. Sad that there is no actual law in NYC any more.

Legal Aid Society response: “Locking up Mr. Barry on unaffordable bail or worse, remanding without bail, ultimately does nothing to protect the public and fails entirely to address his actual needs.” When did the perpetrator's needs take precedence over the law abiding citizen's?

Nice idea, #4, but essentially ALL weapons are illegal to carry in NYC. AFAIK, only a small, pocket sized, specifically NYC approved pepper spray is even legal in NYC, and requires filling out forms, ID to purchase at A GUN DEALER only, and limited to purchasing two pocket sprays. Only the wealthy can afford the bribes necessary to get a concealed carry permit in NYC, and even the NY state permits are not valid in NYC.

Statement of The Legal Aid Society: “Locking up Mr. Barry on unaffordable bail or worse, remanding without bail, ultimately does nothing to protect the public and fails entirely to address his actual needs.” False on both counts! 1; Locking him up protects the public from his illegal acts. 2; Locking him up will provide his basic needs.

As long as the bail reform law stays as is in NY, I don't think this guy is going to a state that doesn't have the same law. If the New Yorkers are dumb enough to accept the law, that's on them. Someday the crook will run into the wrong mark and end laying across the third rail or looking up at an on coming train.

Filling in the missing letters via the Daily Mail, FTA: "I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!" Barry shouted to reporters. "It’s a great thing. It’s a beautiful thing." ... It's OK for this person to toss racial epithets because it's Black History Month, a time of heightened sensitivities in the Community. Wonder of he's related to former DC mayor and convicted felon Marion Barry, who's been honored with a statue there?

Cuomo and his 100% demonrat run legislature made sure that their criminal base didn't have to waste their lucrative ill gotten gains on something pesky like bail. Crime is soaring in NY but all demonrats deny it and the propaganda media covers it all up. I'm surprised this article even got published.

These thoughts reflect the writer's concern about the worsening political and social conditions in Germany, a nation whose importance — for America, Europe, and the world — should require no laboring to a readership of politically sophisticated Americans. What's happening today in Germany is deeply disturbing. And it's not for the reason casual American observers, including many conservatives, might think based on information derived from the mainstream English-language media. Contrary to these purveyors of globalist, multi-cultural propaganda, the reason for growing unease about Germany is not the presence in the German parliament (Bundestag), and persistent electoral strength, of "Die Alternative für Deutschland" ("The alternative for Germany," or AFD)

A 14-year-old male was arrested and charged in the December murder of Barnard College student Tessa Majors, the New York City Police Department announced Saturday. Majors, 18, was fatally stabbed on Dec. 11 while walking through Manhattan’s Morningside Park in an attack that left members of the community shaken.

The teen, who is being charged as an adult, is expected to be arraigned next Wednesday.

The Justice Department said Friday it will not pursue criminal charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, after a nearly two-year-long investigation into accusations brought by the agency's independent watchdog who claimed that he lacked "candor" when questioned about leaking to the media. In a letter to McCabe attorney Michael Bromwich obtained by Fox News, Justice Department attorney J.P. Cooney said the investigation is now “closed.” “We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe,’” Cooney wrote.

This isn’t your 2016 Bernie Sanders. Yes, he won New Hampshire. And yes, the PredictIt market has him winning every state on Super Tuesday. But the biggest takeaway from last night as far as the Bernie Sanders campaign goes is that he lost half his voter base from the last election. The question now is whether he can recover that and beat President Trump. Wall Street highly doubts it. It’s already celebrating, coronavirus be damned.
Assuming Sanders is begrudgingly nominated by the powers-that-be in the Democratic Party (he is an I-VT, in the DNCs mind), this is a man who has lost a significant part of the mojo he had

A comment published last week in Nature, a leading scientific journal, has thrown a monkey wrench into hundreds of studies and media stories that previously predicted dire climate consequences in the future due to increased carbon dioxide (CO2) in our atmosphere. The consequences were predicted by a computer model called Representative Carbon Pathways (RCP), and the worst-case scenario model, RCP8.5, had been cited more than 2,500 times in scientific journals and in hundreds of media stories as the primary need for "urgent action" on climate. Predictions from the RCP8.5 model suggested maximum global temperature increases of nearly 6°C (10.8°F) by the year 2100, shown in Figure 1.

Just under 400 of those cases have been confirmed in countries outside of China. “With 99 percent of cases in China, this remains very much an emergency for that country, but one that holds a very grave threat for the rest of the world,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said

The Justice Department announced Friday that it is closing its investigation of Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s former deputy director, over his false statements to investigators probing an unauthorized leak that McCabe had orchestrated. McCabe was fired in March 2018, shortly after a blistering Justice Department inspector general (IG) report concluded that he repeatedly and blatantly lied — or, as the Bureau lexicon puts it, “lacked candor” — when questioned, including under oath. Why not indict McCabe on felony false-statements charges? That is the question being pressed by incensed Trump supporters.

In an extraordinary ruling, a state supreme court judge has ordered the developers of a nearly completed 668-foot block of flats in New York to remove as many as 20 or more floors from the top of the building. The decision is a major victory for community groups who opposed the project on the grounds that the developers used a zoning loophole to create the tallest building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. A lawyer representing the project said the developers would appeal the decision. Justice W Franc Perry ordered that the Department of Buildings revoke the building permit for the tower at 200 Amsterdam Avenue

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg once said that farming and factory jobs don’t require much gray matter, as opposed to information-era jobs. In a 2016 talk at Oxford University in England, a clip of which went viral over the weekend, the 2020 Democratic presidential contender belittled both agricultural and industrial jobs as simple and simplistic. “I could teach anybody, even the people in this room” to be a farmer, he said, calling agriculture “a process.” “You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn,” he said. He spoke similarly of factory jobs as mechanical repetition requiring no brain power.
