Gang member released without bail in New York City commits three more shootings

5 Aug , 2020  

With shootings in New York City in July up 177% over what they were a year ago, stories such as this one on the bail system in New York as well as moves to defund the police help explain the increase. In a previous era, a felon in possession of gun would have required bail, but not these days.

An alleged gang member in New York City was involved in three drive-by shootings just weeks after he was released without bail following an attempted murder arrest, according to reports. . . .

“The defendant’s violent spree over the last year has left at least seven individuals with gunshot wounds,” federal prosecutors wrote in July 29 court papers. “The defendant is extraordinarily violent by any measure and he has shown total disregard for the lives of others.”

Court papers show Sutton was previously convicted on March 9, 2015, for assault with intent to cause bodily injury. He was sentenced to two years in prison.

Sutton was arrested by federal law enforcement on July 29 and charged for possessing a weapon despite being a felon, according to multiple reports. He is being held at a federal jail in Brooklyn New York and faces up to a decade behind bars.

    The anti-gun extremists are constantly doing research on the effects of background checks, gun bans, magazine bans…….has anyone done direct research into the policies of the democrat party, their laws and actions that release violent, repeat gun offenders over and over again..for example…how many shootings are committed by repeat felons and how often shooters have been released by democrat judges and prosecutors. We don’t have a gun problem in the U.S. We have a problem, directly linked to the democrat party where they release violent gun criminals from jail and prison over and over again. If we stopped that….our gun crime in democrat party controlled cities and neighborhoods would go down about 95%….right?
