Assemblyman David DiPietro (R,C,I,- East Aurora) joined members of the Assembly and Senate Minority Conferences today in demanding a repeal of the state’s bail reform policy and a plan to address growing public safety concerns.
DiPietro and his Minority colleagues argue the bail reform laws championed by radical Majority lawmakers in the state Legislature have let criminals be released with little to no accountability, allowing them to go right back to victimizing communities. Other topics discussed were outrage with District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s refusal to prosecute certain crimes, restoration of judicial discretion in the bail process and the importance of funding our law enforcement.
“Radical Majority politicians have allowed our cities and communities to be overrun with crime in the name of so-called ‘reform.’ Day after day we see stories of criminals being arrested three, four, five times in a single day, with the result being them walking free and continuing their assault on the community,” said DiPietro. “They ought to be ashamed of the situation they’ve created. New Yorkers deserve to be safe and criminals deserve to be in jail. Repeal bail reform now.”
