Mayor Dismayed That Released Inmates Are Re-offending, 'It’s Unconscionable'

Holly Matkin

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said it is "unconscionable" that released inmates went out an committed new offenses.

New York, NY – New York Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed shock and dismay over the fact that dozens of inmates released due to COVID-19 concerns immediately went out and committed new crimes.

“I think it’s unconscionable just on a human level that folks were shown mercy and this is what some of them have done,” de Blasio lamented during his Monday briefing, according to the New York Post.

The city has released over 1,400 inmates in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus inside jail facilities.

At least 50 of those inmates immediately went out and committed new crimes, and despite their new offenses, some of them have been released from jail yet again, the New York Post reported.

Among them was an inmate accused of attacking a Department of Homeless Services officer.

Two days after he was released, the suspect was arrested again for allegedly punching a sergeant from the same agency, the New York Post reported.

Another inmate had been kicked loose from jail while serving a two-month sentence for a theft conviction.

Just weeks after he was released, he was arrested for allegedly burglarizing a store and stealing over $9,000.

A third inmate had been in custody for allegedly setting his girlfriend’s door ablaze and choking her mother, the New York Post reported.

After the city released him due to concerns about the virus, he went back to his girlfriend’s apartment and allegedly threatened to murder her entire family.

“We do see some recidivism,” de Blasio acknowledged on Monday. “I have not seen a huge amount, but any amount is obviously troubling.”

The mayor said the city will be “buckling down” on released offenders, although it is unclear what exact efforts are being implemented to accomplish that feat.

“We’re going to just keep buckling down on it, making sure there’s close monitoring and supervision to the maximum step possible,” he said, according to the New York Post. “And the NYPD is going to keep doing what they’re doing.”

As of Thursday, 142,432 New York City residents had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, and 10,977 have died, according to Bing's COVID-19 Tracker.

Hey DeBlasio, Maybe the judges and juries and cops that actually worked these dirtbags knew they belonged incarcerated better than a third rate hack politician.

It's only "unconscionable" to someone who is unconscious and does not know that releasing repeat offenders will result in history repeating itself.

Well, yeah. Contrary to popular liberal belief, these guys didn't end up in prison by accident. Career criminals are lazy, stupid, selfish people who don't give a solitary shit about anyone but themselves. Just because you showed them mercy doesn't mean they'll reciprocate, quite the opposite in fact; they'll take advantage of the kindness to benefit themselves. Welcome to reality, you naive incompetent moron.

Unconscionable ... of course. Highly predictable ...ABSOLUTELY. Except to politicians whose policies are based on Leftist ideologies rather than the well-being of the citizenry. They have forgotten that we’re elected to represent and “govern” the nation, not to “rule” it.

This is one time where it is safe to say, "The lunatics are running the asylum" - regardless whether you're referencing deblasio or the criminals or both. What an animal farm. NYC - largest sh_thole in the Country.

The stupidity of politicians never ceases to amaze! WTF did he think they were going to do? Comrade De Blasio's lack of common sense is rivaled only by Gretchen "Half" Whitmer, Jay Inslee, Kate Brown, Lori Lightfoot, Gavin Newsome and any number of other dimwitted democrats, plus a few Republicans.

Everyone already thinks Blasio is the stupidest human on the planet. Now, he has confirmed it. He's dumber than Michael Dukakis AND Willie Horton combined, by a large margin.

His Honor, Mayor De Blasio has always been a fair and balanced politician. He has done a great job during the Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that has swept the world. The Mayor cannot be held responsible for the crimes of people released by the courts because of the pandemic.

And our POS governor here in Virginia has pushed and pushed to get prisons and jails to release any and every "qualified" inmate here released early. At least my Sheriff didn't give in to this stupid concept. How could any educated person think anything different would have happened.
