Because of coronavirus concerns, New York City released over 1,400 inmates from Rikers Island. Mayor Bill de Blasio seems shocked and offended by what happened next:

From the NY Post:

It is “unconscionable” that Riker’s Island inmates who were released due to coronavirus concerns are committing new crimes, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.

“I think it’s unconscionable just on a human level that folks were shown mercy and this is what some of them have done,” the mayor said during his morning briefing Monday, which came on the heels of a Post report outlining the issue.

Katie Pavlich was also shocked… that de Blasio was actually surprised:

And yet people like Bill de Blasio are still in charge of making decisions related to the coronavirus response. What could possibly go wrong?

Irony can be so ironic sometimes!
