DeBlasio’s war on bail is recycling Jew haters to attack again
In the midst of a wave of attacks on Jews, the mayor of the city with the largest Jewish population in the world is freeing alleged attackers to attack again because of his progressive ideology .
One of the latest fads among progressives is the release of criminal suspects on low bail or even no bail. The underlying premise is that people (in practice, racial minorities presumed to be victims) are frequently arrested unjustly, and so they ought to be set free until put on trial. New York’s Mayor Bill DeBlasio is one of the most enthusiastic adherents and has implemented so-called “bail reform” in New York City in advance of the implementation of a New York State law mandating easy release of criminal suspects.
As a result, Jew-haters are being released from custody after arrest on accusations of violent attacks on Jews. Because dBlasio insists on it. Those who are obsessed, are then free to target other victims, in a matter of two days in the most recent example. As Monica Showater predicted on these pages yesterday. Ryan Saavedra reports in the Daily Wire:
A woman who was arrested for allegedly committing an anti-Semitic attack on three Jewish women on Friday in New York City was released on bail and has since been arrested again for committing another act of violence that reportedly happened today.
“A day after she was released without bail on charges stemming from the Friday attack, Tiffany Harris was charged with assault for slugging a 35-year-old in the face on Eastern Parkway near Underhill Avenue in Prospect Heights at about 9:15 a.m.,” The New York Post reported. “It’s unclear if Sunday’s victim is Jewish – and police weren’t treating the incident as a hate crime. The victim suffered swelling and bruising to her right eye from the pummeling.”
Mayor deBlasio was confronted by Fox News’s Ed Henry about this yesterday.

The coddling extends far beyond mere release to offend again.
Later in the interview, Henry pressed de Blasio for giving alleged criminals, who are released on bail, “metro cards to ride around on the subway, two debit cards with $25 each, and burner cell phones.”
“It sounds kind of soft on crime,” Henry said.
“No, it’s not,” de Blasio responded. “It’s trying to get people out of crime and keep them out of crime. Look, if you want us to do what we have done for decades, which bred career criminals, which ensured that a lot of people were locked up and that only made them worse, we could keep doing that.”
“But Mr. Mayor, what if they take the metro card and then they go beat up more people before they go to court?” Henry pressed. “You don’t think that happens?”
“We’re missing the forest for the trees here,” de Blasio responded.
“How so? You give a criminal a metro card,” Henry pressed. “Tiffany Harris, who said ‘f you Jews’ and beat up three Jewish women — did she get a metro card?”
“And she will have a trial. I don’t know what happened with her; that’s not the point,” de Blasio responded. “She will have a trial, as all Americans are due. That trial will determine the consequences and the punishment.”
Bill de Blasio says giving people like Tiffany Harris, who slapped 3 Jewish women in the face and shouted “F–k you, Jews!,” 2 debit cards and a *burner cell phone* upon release is not “soft on crime.” If they attack more people on bail, it’s “missing the forest for the trees.” pic.twitter.com/jI0pp4XrH2— Matthew Foldi (@MatthewFoldi) December 30, 2019

Does anyone believe that if a white offender were arrested for attacks on black people, that person wuld be released on no bail? And that if after release another attack were perpetrated, Mayor deBlaso would urge patience while we wait for the first trial to be held?
