Fair or dangerous? Days after ending cash bail, New York has second thoughts

On Jan. 1, a landmark New York law curtailing the use of cash bail went into effect, signaling a leap in a nationwide movement to reduce the number of people held in jails.But after less than a week under the new system, elected officials are already having second thoughts, rattled by stories of suspects’ being set free and committing new crimes ─ including that of a woman accused of an anti-Semitic attack in New York City.

This is the culmination of a careful and destructive effort on the part of Bill de Blasio, the crooked socialist mayor of New York, and perhaps the worst big-city mayor in America. Yes, yes, Chicago and Los Angeles are in the running, but crooked Bill is a special case; a marvelous combination of stupidity, tone-deafness, venality and sheer incompetence.

New Yorkers are reflexive Democrats; they are apathetic; they like spending other people’s money, and now they are reaping the whirlwind of their decisions.

Bill would ban cellphone use for those under 21

The bill was introduced by Sen. John Rodgers, D-Essex-Orleans. Rodgers said Wednesday he introduced the bill to make a point.“I have no delusions that it’s going to pass. I wouldn’t probably vote for it myself,” he said.

He said he’s a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and the Legislature “seems bent on taking away our Second Amendment rights.”

He said, based on the information presented in the bill, a cellphone is much more dangerous than a gun.
