Ten criminals caused trouble in New York City and were arrested nearly 500 times, thanks to reform of the state’s bail law. New York Post mentionted Wednesday.
Many of these individuals remained free, the outlet continued:
The staggering statistics compiled by the NYPD and first obtained by The Post show that the city’s alleged “worst of the worst” offenders have been busted a total of 485 times since bail reform went into effect in 2020.
Two of the defendants are actually charged with lives of crime in the wake of the bail reform, with one arrested 33 times since 2020 and the other 22 times so far this year, the figures show.
Mayor Eric Adams (D) weighed in on the issue Wednesday during a news conference.
“Our criminal justice system is crazy,” he said.
The number one NYPD criminal on the list was Harold Gooding, a man who had been arrested 101 times. Eighty-eight of these cases were after bail reform was enacted.

Andrew Cuomo (D) and supported by incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul (D)’.
