Man allegedly ‘mutilates’ stranger during fatal stabbing after being released by judge

A man accused of fatally stabbing a stranger outside of a New York subway station last week had recently been released on $100,000 bail in a murder case.

Jesus Ramirez, 28, was freed Saturday after paying just 10% of the total bail amount for an alleged murder that was captured on video.

The crime

“Prosecutors with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office requested that Ramirez be held behind bars without bail in the case — but Adams instead set the monetary bail,” the New York Post reported.

“Authorities said the brutal clash was set off when Ramirez and Torres apparently bumped into each other at West 44th Street and Eighth Avenue just before 1 a.m. on Friday,” it added.

The problem

“Proponents of reform will argue the system worked as intended: Someone committed a bail-eligible offense, bail was set, he paid the bond. In reality, the case highlights how even after two reforms in three years, the system remains broken,” New York Post writer Charles Fain Lehman stated in a separate report.

“After all, Ramirez’s bond was issued over the objection of Manhattan’s progressive district attorney, Alvin Bragg, whose office asked that he be held without bail. But the system bail reform imposed made that unlikely,” he added.

Cities across the nation are beginning to turn against bail reform efforts that have let violent criminals conveniently return to the streets to commit additional crimes.

The effort, combined with the push to defund the police by some Democrats, is a deadly mix that is part of the nation’s growing crime problem.

The most recent example shows that bail reform can instead make crime worse, allowing offenders more opportunities to do evil.
