Persistent fucker, ain’t he?

A serial bank robber targeted four New York banks, was released under the city’s new law which requires no bail for holding suspects, only to strike a fifth financial institution, police claim.

The suspect, Gerold Woodberry, 42, is alleged to have robbed banks in New York’s Midtown Manhattan, Harlem, West Village and the Upper West Side, since December 30, sources said.

However, under the new ‘no bail’ law, he was released on Thursday.

‘I can’t believe they let me out,’ sources said he was overheard saying on the way out of the New York Police Department’s headquarters, reports the New York Post.

    That “no bail” deal is coming here to California soon, I think it goes into effect in July…adding insult to injury.

    I could never live there.

    Yet another Demonrat utopia concept that only endangers the public further. Sanctuary cities, no bail, why not just declare all laws invalid and fire all the police and close all of the jails. Think of all the taxpayer funds that could be diverted to lure more illegal voters.

    I hope he robs 9 more. If you make stupid laws who cares?

    Easy decision to make. File federal charges and the bastard gets teied in federal court.

    I was under the impression bank robbery was under Federal purview.

    Why did they take armed guards out of banks? Probably because of the litigious society we’ve become.

    The new no-bail law applies to “non-violent felonies” and misdemeanors.

    This law, along with the new law that specifically requires giving the accused the personal information on their accusers (so, a rape victim can no longer stop their personal information from being given to their rapist), as well as requiring that the accused be given access to the location of the supposed crime (so, a rape victim potentially has to allow their rapist access to the home where the rape occured), NY is trying hard to drive more people out of the state. (I assume this law is to attempt to deal with the idiots who call in false charges, but this isn’t the way to do it)

    Guess the r…

    Oh, never mind. The more interesting guessing game is who are writing such legislation and pushing it through legislatures. To be honest, that’s not difficult either, but it’s strictly forbidden to notice.
