with one busted 33 times since 2020

WTF that's one arrest every 28 days since 2020. This guy is the worst criminal ever. It's like he's not even trying to not get caught.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands are awaiting the 2-3 year wait for a trial at home, able to keep their jobs and retain family connections, and about 90% make all of their court dates.

But go ahead and highlight the handful of outliers. Not saying there should not be some more enforcement or even proposals that aren't just 'bail reform must change' ad nauseum.


The rearrest rate is 17%, which has gone down. For violent felonies, the rearrest rate remains almost equal whether or not bail is set. Remember that bail can be paid if you have enough money and you can get out and await trial, so this is a significant thing to note.

Even if bail was set in the original case, the rearrest rate for a violent felony was close to the same: 2.8%.

Setting bail is not exactly an end-all solution, as for one, bail is meant to secure your court appearance. It is not punitive.

"When bail is set in an original case, about 15% of defendants arerearrested on other charges, which is close to the average of all cases,17%. "

Of the roughly 70,000 cases fitting those categories over the period beginning Jan. 1, 2020, bail is set less than half the time: About 42%. One factor in this rate might be judges, when determining whether to detain or release a defendant or set bail, are supposed to use the "least restrictive" option to ensure the person returns for future court dates.

Among this group where bail is an option, the overall rearrest rate is 18% — or right around the overall average for all cases, 17%. About 4% of these rearrests were for violent felonies.

When bail was set, the rearrest rate was 15%.

I wish they’d put in the minimal effort it requires to cite their data. Nowhere reporting on these alleged numbers has linked to any data source at all.

Data without context is worse than useless.

They said one person was arrested 87 times, 25 being after bail reform. So what about the 52 other arrests that preceded bail reform? Then they go on to say that the person has been convicted of 20 crimes with 3 currently pending. Sooooo what the hell are we supposed to make out of the other ~54 arrests?

Also they state a bunch of numbers about recidivism rates for different property crimes and even those numbers need context because what were the rates of recidivism when bail was set?

Using the city’s own DART tool, I just looked up recidivism rates for people charged with property crimes (burglary, larceny, theft, etc) in 2017 who had cash bail set: 27.1% of them were rearrested for a felony within a year. The article cites the NYPD pitching a fit over the burglary recidivism rate being 25.1%.

It would be really eye opening to have interviews with the folks who raised these people. I’m like genuinely interested in what went wrong and what signs they saw early on.

Another shit article from the NY Post blaming bail reform for issues that have little to do with bail reform. Bail reform doesn’t prevent anyone they mentioned in the article from being remanded and held in jail until trial. But they blame bail reform, and shockingly Bragg even though he wasn’t the DA when most of these crimes happened.

Yet clowns will still say bail reform laws haven’t caused an increase in crime lol. If people know they’re not going to end up in jail and if the same person can commit a crime repeatedly no shit crime will go up.
