The Bail Reform that Andrew Cuomo enacted has had disastrous consequences and continues to create lawlessness and danger; re-offenses are occurring and communities are truly endangered by these failed policies. Systematic change is needed and the Bail Reform has compounded dysfunction and increased peril to vulnerable communities. Especially troubling are the dangers that women and children are repeatedly made vulnerable to due to Andrew Cuomo's failed bail reform.
Thousands of inmates including murderers and convicted child rapists have been released to NY communities due to Cuomo's directives to drastically reduce prison populations; this reckless decision is having disastrous effects and runs contrary to the reasons behind the mandates that law abiding New Yorkers have been living under since March. Better provisions should be made to care for the inmate population that do not include releasing criminals to communities where revictimization is occurring.
Lack of transparency and a lack of communication are key components of Andrew Cuomo's failed leadership of NY State; with ample opportunities for press conferences, Cuomo has done little to nothing to inform our citizens of the sweeping changes he has ushered in with hundreds of laws changed in recent months- with most changes occurring between March and April. Bipartisan support is being garnered to limit the grossly expansive executive power Cuomo has given himself with no regard to legislative process or public input.
