Mayor Adams is calling for changes to New York’s bail reform law, saying criminals are being released back onto the street.
“No one takes criminal justice seriously anymore. These bad guys no longer take them seriously. They believe our criminal justice system is a laughing stock of our entire country,” Mayor Adams said.
The mayor said NYPD officers are catching criminals and have taken more than 3,000 guns off the streets in 2022. But he said the courts aren’t prosecuting these people.
“We have to get serious about this because innocent people are dying,” Mayor Adams said.
