    I believe now that many of the criminal justice reforms enacted in Albany have certainly created a climate where those with criminal/ violent intentions have become much more emboldened.

  2. CYRUS says:

    We have learned that at least 12 people have been shot so far in this City this weekend alone. This is clearly unacceptable and demonstrates a failure of the criminal justice system. Get back to the drawing board and make sentencing for gun offenders much stiffer, and definitely bring back the anti crime units, now.
