Progressive NY lawmakers’ claims debunked by Staten Island’s crime rates

This year’s increase in crime on Staten Island is wholly unacceptable, and I join my neighbors, family, friends, colleagues, and all who call our borough home in their frustration. 

Every Staten Islander deserves to be safe from crime and deserves to feel safe as they go about their lives. 

We know we have work to do to return to that reality and meet the challenges we face because of misguided and harmful policies visited upon us by outside forces. 

In fact, this was our reality as recently as 2019, when our beloved borough enjoyed record-low crime numbers. 

Unfortunately, idealistic and naive legislators alongside their anarchist advocate backers seized on this opportunity to rewrite our state and city’s criminal justice apparatus, leaving one hand tied behind the back of prosecutors, the morale of our brave law enforcement professionals damaged, and a severe reduction in accountability for lawbreakers.

Staten Island has been hurt by these devastating policy decisions. 

“Raise the Age” has led to a boroughwide jump in juvenile crime of over 20% and a total lack of accountability for teenage lawbreakers in Criminal Court. 

Bail reform has meant repeat offenders charged with hundreds of crimes, including assault, felony drug sales, and commercial burglary, who were previously eligible to be held pre-trial, are now mandated to be released. 

Staten Island's crime have surged 129% so far this year over last year, according to reports.Source link
