Justice in New York Doesn't Exist Anymore

Report: Bronx Judge Orders Alleged NYC Synagogue Vandal ...

Justice in New York doesn't exist anymore, that's a fact.

Jordan Burnette, 29 engineered a hateful one man war against Jewish synagogues, Jewish businesses, and a Jewish community center in the Bronx.  Since he broke glass in several burglaries, one judge in the Bronx courts went rebel.Bronx Criminal Court Judge Louis Nock ordered a  $20,000 bail  after the jurist reviewed the state’s bail reform laws and determined that monetary bond was legal in the case.

Guess what? Another Bronx jurist, Tara Collins, reversed this and ordered Burnette released without bail. Burnette was hit with 42 charges, including burglary as a hate crime and criminal trespass as a hate crime for attacks on synagogues and a Jewish community center during which he smashed windows, vandalized the buildings  and doused religious books in hand sanitizer.

“This is not a crime for which we can ask for bail, as the law exists and the Legislature oversees it,” argued Assistant District Attorney Theresa Gottlieb before the case was called a second time. “The Legislature did not in fact include hate crimes under bail-eligible offenses. "Given the number of attacks, we probably would have asked for substantial bail before January of 2020."

She's right, hate crimes aren't bail eligible  in New York....especially if Jews are the targets. 

"Bail reform" laws in New York, California,, and a few other states allows the release of suspects on personal recognizance — that is, without putting up any money to guarantee they'll even show up in court for prosecution on the crimes of which they have been accused.  In Burnette's case, he was arrested while riding a bicycle stolen from one of the vandalized synagogues, and there is surveillance tape of him committing some of the vandalism.

Here's a list of the felonies you can walk out of court scott free in New York. I guarantee you won't believe it. Keep in mind that a released felon can threaten his accuser to drop the charges or else, intimidate witnesses to say they didn't see anything, even bribe witnesses in their favor or of course, simply leave town.

New York, slowly but surely is becoming a lawless place to live...especially for Jews.Hardly a week passes without Jews being assaulted or mugged on the streets.
