"--the powers that be?" Sorry but reading several online articles concerning the "no bail" reforms in NYS and quoting DA Bragg among other government officials that calling the police about a crime taking place is the the EQUIVALENT to AN ACT OF VIOLENCE" is probably the most absurd shit I have ever read in my life!
The only thing that could possibly more false and out of line with reality is Trump's continual lies.
We must find a balance between law enforcement and lawlessness! Making the police impotent and portraying them as the bad guys in all situations is an absurd and stupid non-solution to the ongoing issues of LOW, LOWEST AND LOWERING quality of life in NYC in the guise of racial justice. BRING BACK BAIL!!!!!
