A serial subway crook in New York who snatches money out of people’s hands and has been arrested 139 times told the New York Daily News that the state’s new bail reform law is “lit,” and he’s been freed three times without having to post bail since the law went into effect Jan. 1.
“I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!” shouts Charles Barry after his 139th known arrest. He praises NY’s “bail reform” law, and the Democrats behind it. He’s accused of robbing Subway riders & numerous other crimes. https://t.co/HqVHgml1Ek

The bail reform policy eliminates cash bail and pre-trial detention for misdemeanors and most low-level felonies.
“I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!” [Charles] Barry yelled to a Daily News reporter late Thursday night as police led him out of NYPD Transit District 1 headquarters in the Columbus Circle station.
“Bail reform, it’s lit!” Barry said. “It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”
Barry, 56, who has served six stints in state prison, has been arrested six times since New York’s bail reform laws took effect Jan. 1.
After each arrest, he was freed without bail because the charges against him did not involve violence. Twice he was charged with stealing money unsuspecting straphangers were trying to insert in MetroCard vending machines.
Grabbing money out of people’s hands isn’t violent, so he gets to go free without posting bail.
The biggest criminals are the Demoncrats in Albany.

Criminals over law abiding citizens seems to be the left's philosophy.

Lots of NY kids are now going, $300 a day, …. I’m all in.
This will escalate.
Citizens deserve exactly the government they elect.

At least he's not out there murdering my Jewish brothers and sisters like many of the animals "bail reform" has kept out on the streets. I hope the best for the people of NYC.

Just another successful Democrat policy at play ?

Basically, New York Democrats have legalized crime! Democrats aren't fit to govern!

Democrat run cities are a disaster; they're determined to empower criminals. "gun control" legislation, to disarm law abiding citizens. Open borders and free healthcare to illegals, to encourage more illegal immigration. "Bail reform", to flood the streets with crime.

Hey, as long as he stays in NY they can arrest him another 140 times. This is what most in NY want, this is what they get. Going to lose tourism dollars 'cause no one wants to deal with that crap.

There is a reason the electoral college (thought it was the electric college when I was a kid) prevents NY and Ca from choosing our president.
— Ned Griffin (@Ned_Griffin) February 15, 2020
Is there some sort of contest among democrat controlled cities to see who can destroy their cities the fastest without people noticing? Talk about the proverbial frog in a pot.

I love to see new laws endorsed by criminals. Maybe de Blasio can get this guy on his campaign, but seriously, why are people voting for this kind of stuff?

139 arrests. What a joke New York’s criminal justice system has become. But the only people laughing are the repeat offenders. They are laughing at you @NYGovCuomo @CarlHeastie @AndreaSCousins https://t.co/61lHskDO0u
