Mayor Adams Calls For Changes To Bail Reform

Mayor Adams is calling on Albany lawmakers to begin a special session and make changes to the state’s bail reform law.

“We are saying let's reexamine the bail laws in the area of violent offenders,” Mayor Adams said.

Adams is upset after a teenager seen on video attacking an NYPD Transit officer was released without bail.The teen had been arrested and released just days earlier in connection with a violent robbery.

“When I say we’re the laughing stock of the country, this is what I'm talking about. How do we keep our city safe when the other parts of the criminal justice system, they have abandoned our public safety apparatus?” Adams said.
