A New York City subway criminal was thankful for Democrats and their ridiculous bail reform initiative after he was immediately released following his 139th arrest.
Having been arrested six times since the new year began, Charles Barry was released each time without having to post bail due to New York’s new bail reform which eliminates cash bail for 90 percent of criminal cases, enabling defendants to await trial at home.
His latest arrest was Thursday after he jumped a subway turnstile in Penn Station. He repeatedly dressed as an MTA official and robbed people after offering to help them pay buy their subway tickets, according to police.
Outside of a NYPD headquarters, Barry yelled to reporters, “Bail reform, it’s lit! It’s the Democrats. The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”
Fox News points out that in the past, Barry “served several stints in state prison and has a lengthy record, including six felonies, 87 misdemeanors and 21 missed court hearings, the newspaper reported, citing court records.”
“I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cr—-r! You can’t stop me!” Barry yelled to reporters. “It’s a great thing. It’s a beautiful thing. They punk’ed people out for bullsh– crimes.”
Fox News writes:
After his most recent arrest Thursday, Barry was held in custody for about 36 hours until his Saturday morning arraignment hearing in his Manhattan Criminal Court. He was then released before trial without paying bail. He had two warrants out for his arrest for missing court dates related to past alleged subway theft, including one instance in January when he allegedly snatched a $50 bill out of a woman’s hand while she was trying to buy a Metro card at a Bryant Park station machine.
