Hundreds of inmates were released from Riker's Island in New York City to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the prison. Officials knew the risks. And those fears have been realized, hundreds of times. New reporting from Melissa Russo reveals that at least 250 prisoners out of the 2,500 who were released early have gone on to commit at least 450 more crimes.
Melissa Russo ✔ @MelissaRusso4NY 250 prisoners released early from Rikers bc of COVID-19 concerns have been arrested 450 times since. We take a look at one who has been rearrested 4X already. The NYPD is not happy. Neither are the victims.
Released From Rikers in COVID Measure, Man Arrested 4 Times in 3 Months Hundreds of prisoners released early from Rikers due to COVID concerns are being enabled to re-offend again and again without consequences, law enforcement leaders say. Were continuing to see...
"Its a bad decision by our leaders, said Ebi Khalili, one of the robbed store owners.
That would turn out to be the mildest of his crimes in the coming weeks.
Seven days after his early release, Martinez was arrested for allegedly pulling a boxcutter while stealing a cellphone from a passenger in a parked car. NBC New York has obtained video of this incident. Martinez was released on his own recognizance.

That was the agreement. The DEMs release you, and you need to create more mayhem before November 2020.
4 days ago on FR is 100 yrs.
Seen it....search still works.
The left doesn't see theft/robbery from wealthier people as a crime at all.
So, a 90% success rate? Pretty good!
The four hour rule stands. Why aren’t you the Admin Moderator?
Blue states seem to have significant problems with crime.
Because they did a background check...lol
Until it happens to them.
Then they squeal like stuck pigs.
That was predictable, foreseen, and therefore the politicians who released them are fully responsible for the crimes they committed upon release.
Those are only the crimes we know about while the NYPD were overloaded with Covid, looting and riots.
I know what concerns us, and rightly so, are the 10% of those released who went straight back to their criminal ways.
But, I bet we can expect the Leftists to call that a “90% success rate”.
That, in spite of the fact that the book is not finished yet. Over time I think we can expect that 10% figure to grow.
