Default Controversial bail reform springs serial robbery suspect — who then pulls off fifth h

In yet another brain dead move by left wing progressives attempting to reform social justice with no regard to obvious consequences, this bank robber is laughing all the way to the bank. The next piece of intelligent legislation passed by progressives would be their first.

Controversial bail reform springs serial robbery suspect — who then pulls off fifth heist

He’s laughing all the way to the next bank.

A John Dillinger wannabe is on the loose thanks to lax bail laws that set him free despite his arrest in connection to four Manhattan bank robberies.

Sprung on Thursday, he promptly robbed a fifth bank, in Brooklyn, on Friday, law enforcement sources told The Post.

So cops spent Saturday hunting once again for fugitive Gerod Woodberry, who allegedly pulled four heists at Chase banks in Chelsea, the Upper West Side and the West Village between Dec. 30 and Jan. 8.

Because Woodberry allegedly robbed using a note, rather than a gun, no New York jail can currently hold him, no matter how many times he strikes.

His alleged grand larcenies are classified as non-violent felonies. And under the bail reform law that took effect Jan. 1, most non-violent felonies — including bank robberies carried out without a weapon — are no longer bail eligible, meaning no judge can order him held pending trial.

Should cops pinch Woodberry on the fifth alleged heist, he’ll only be sprung again.

The insanity of the new law clearly wasn’t lost on the prime suspect.

“I can’t believe they let me out,” Woodberry marveled as he retrieved his vouchered property at One Police Plaza in lower Manhattan, sources told The Post. “What were they thinking?”

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea voiced his frustration after The Post broke Woodberry’s story online Saturday.

“What motivation does this suspect have to return to court? None,” Shea tweeted.

“This makes NYPD cops’ jobs harder, and makes New Yorkers less safe.”

Now, now GAC. You know it doesn't matter how many people get robbed, raped or murdered, it is the purity of the progressives intentions that matter.

That bullshlt does not protect the scumbag from lethal response by some legally armed "potential victim" he might decide to choose next. I know I would not scrutinize the little ass hole first to see if he was armed or not, if he tried to rob me.

Unfortunately, this is in New York were the government has done a pretty good job of disarming much of the citizenry leaving victims with little defense against these maggots that are infesting the state particularly in the NY City area.

Looks like they need to reclassify robberies done with the threat of violence even without the use of a weapon as violent offenses.


As for bail reform I do think there should be bail reform.It should be a certain percentage of the defendant's assets are verses the seriousness of the offense the individal is accused of. Because the whole point of bail is so that the justice system can have enough collateral that makes it worth it enough for the defendant to show up to trial. Right now bail is either set so high that no average person can afford it. Or its low enough that some wealthy person can say **** you and flee the country because the bail he or she paid is minuscule amount of money to them and is no consequence to them losing. What New York did was throw the baby out with the bathwater.
