    • Adding the ‘ Per the NY bail reform’ is ridiculous and intended as a political statement. I find it sad that our police department is stooping to using false political propoganda they know is divisive . Just look back through years of previous arrests for very similar charges and how often appearance tickets were issued with no bail. I did. county by county. If one were really interested in public safety why is there no public campaign to end plea deals with criminals ? Please keep politics out of our law enforcement that serve and protect all community members.
