    NYC subway thief thanks Democrats after his 139th arrest, release: 'Bail reform, it’s lit!'

    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, the newspaper reported, citing court records.

    “Bail reform, it’s lit!” Barry yelled to reporters Thursday outside the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Transit District 1 headquarters in the Columbus Circle station before officers transported him to Manhattan Central Booking. “It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”


    Charles Barry, 56, has been arrested six times since New York's new bail reform law took effect Jan. 1.

    After his most recent arrest Thursday, Barry was held in custody for about 36 hours until his Saturday morning arraignment hearing in his [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. He was then released before trial without paying bail. He had [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for missing court dates related to past alleged subway theft, including one instance in January when he allegedly snatched a $50 bill out of a woman’s hand while she was trying to buy a Metro card at a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] machine.

    Officers arrested him Thursday after he was spotted jumping a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in Penn Station. Barry, a career criminal, has repeatedly duped subway-goers by dressing as MTA officials and robbing people after offering to help them buy their tickets, police said.

    “I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cr****r! You can’t stop me!” Barry shouted to reporters. “It’s a great thing. It’s a beautiful thing. They punk’ed people out for bull***t crimes.”

    A high-ranking official in the New York City Police Department said because of the new bail reform law, offenders like Barry are released and then repeat the same crimes because judges cannot order them to be held in jail before trial. Sometimes, what begins as a nonviolent crime often turns violent if a robbery goes awry, he added.

    “At least before, he’d be remanded and be behind bars for a couple of days. He wouldn’t be able to victimize people,” Assistant Chief Gerald Dieckmann, the No. 2 officer in the NYPD’s Transit Bureau, told the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. “When someone doesn’t pay them or give them the money, it’ll turn into a robbery, a slashing an assault.”

    But Legal Aid Society, which represents Barry, argued the NYPD is using a few cases to spread fear over the new bail reform law.

    “Mr. Barry’s case underscores the need for economic stability and meaningful social services, not a need to roll back bail reform,” the society said in a statement. “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.”

    They keep releasing him and IF he shows up for his court dates the judge will probably give him time served.

    Just remember who voted for these extreme left politicians in the first place. In case we do not remember, allow me to tell you: The people of the State of New York, and these people keep voting for the same trash year after year.

    Liberals are feel good people, never think about the ramifications of their actions.
    Social justice is a big fat steaming pile of crap.

    And todays twist.
    Progressive [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], coming [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], are looking to 2020 with hope of winning key district attorney offices around the nation and boosting their influence with an overhaul of the system from within.


    Attorney General William Barr is standing in their way.
    Tensions reached a peak last week after Barr eviscerated the movement in a speech before the Major County Sheriffs of America. He said the "self-styled 'social justice' reformers are refusing to enforce entire categories of law, including law against resisting police officers.""In so doing, these DAs are putting everyone in danger," Barr added, asserting that their "policies are pushing a number of America's cities back toward a more dangerous past."

    Just read and appreciate the insanity of that statement, and examine the parts "........does nothing to protect the public", AND "......"fails entirely to address his actual needs".

    What sort of bent and sick minds think like this?
