NYC Mayor Wants Bail Changes After DA Defends Releasing 16-Year-Old Boy Who Allegedly Beat Up Cop Without Bail

NYC Mayor Wants Bail Changes After DA Defends Releasing 16-Year-Old Boy Who Allegedly Beat Up Cop Without Bail

Cops arrested the boy “for allegedly beating and robbing a stranger near Madison Avenue” only three days before the attack on the cop.

Last weekend, a 16-year-old boy allegedly attacked and beat up an NYPD cop in the subway. The cop confronted the teen for supposedly skipping out on subway fare.

The Case

The boy was charged with second-degree assault, a felony. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s office released him on his own recognizance. The prosecutors also recommended the case go to family court.

The DA, backed by George Soros, defended the decision:

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney defended the release of the male teen after his earlier arrest, citing the teen’s age, which was 15 at the time, and lack of criminal history.

“Our system must respond to children as children, and intensive community monitoring was the appropriate pre-trial determination for a fifteen-year-old child with no previous arrests,” Emily Tuttle, Deputy Director of Communications and Senior Advisor of the Manhattan DA’s office, said. “Violence against our police officers is unacceptable, and given his age at the time of arrest, we consented to send his second case to Family Court as soon as possible, where he would receive the age-appropriate interventions and supports he needs while being held accountable.”

Get this, though. Cops arrested the boy “for allegedly beating and robbing a stranger near Madison Avenue” only three days before he allegedly beat up the cop.

He was on the street because, guess what, the court released him without bail.

Despite that arrest, the DA’s office still thought it’d be a good idea to let him go without bail.

In April, the cops also arrested him “for possessing a .40 caliber handgun and a crossbow in Brooklyn.”

Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s office did not know about the arrest since it happened in a different jurisdiction.

When the case is in family court, the Manhattan DA does not have jurisdiction over the case.

New York made massive bail reform laws, including the Raise the Age Statute. That means “16-and 17-year-olds charged with misdemeanors and many nonviolent felonies are automatically prosecuted in family court.”

However, a district attorney can recommend “to keep a case in criminal court if the crime involves significant physical injury, the display of a firearm, a sexual offense or ‘extraordinary circumstances.'”

Mayor Eric Adams is Furious

The release of the 16-year-old boy appalled New York City Mayor Eric Adams. He wants the state government to rewrite the bail reform laws:

As crime rises in the city, Adams has blamed reforms that went into effect two years ago that limited the number of offenses for which judges could remand defendants to jail and raised the age at which authorities could charge people as adults from 16 to 18 years old. He has also suggested that the court system is processing cases too slowly.

“As soon as we catch them, the system releases them, and they repeat the action,” Adams said. “When I say we’re the laughingstock of the country, this is what I’m talking about. How do we keep our city safe, when the other parts of the criminal justice system — they have abandoned our public safety apparatus?”

Adams suggested that Albany lawmakers should convene to rewrite the bail rules as they did last month to pass new legislation that prohibited where civilians can carry guns, in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that struck down a state gun control law.

“We’re not talking about someone that steals an apple,” Adams said. “We’re talking about someone that has repeatedly used violence in our city.”

Adams noted that the cop didn’t even try to arrest the 16-year-old. The cop asked the boy and his friend to leave the subway.

Gov. Kathy Hochul also asked legislators “to revise the laws ahead of the passing of the state budget earlier this year.” She doesn’t plan on calling for a special session, though.

NOW he changes his stance. The perp beat up a COP. Not just a mere civilian.

    CommoChief in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | July 29, 2022 at 8:57 am


    IMO, an attack on LEO, EMS, Fire while doing their job is worthy of an enhanced punishment. Those individuals are granted authority and responsibility by the Citizens of their community. Attack them on the job and the attack is by extension an attack on society, it’s laws, basic order or on the concept of civilization if you like.

    The same doesn’t hold true when these public servants are off duty. Nor should they be put on a pedestal for their career choices. They should be held to a higher standard of conduct than everyday Citizens, especially when they misuse the authority granted to them.

      taurus the judge in reply to CommoChief. | July 29, 2022 at 9:04 am

      I have to respectfully disagree with part of this Chief.

      >>>The same doesn’t hold true when these public servants are off duty.

      Criminals have long memories and often seek revenge. Even “off duty” (or retired), the driver of many actions occurred in “LOD” and there’s no magic switch that stops actions just “on the clock”.

      Fully agree with the rest

        CommoChief in reply to taurus the judge. | July 29, 2022 at 12:39 pm

        Revenge attacks and intimidation of witnesses occur as well. How about the Dr targeted a few months ago? The Judge who’s son was killed at home? LEO aren’t special in this regard. If the negative aspects of being a LEO outweigh the positives in that LEO’s perspective they should consider another career.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to CommoChief. | July 29, 2022 at 9:55 am

      You are missing my point.

        CommoChief in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | July 29, 2022 at 12:31 pm

        No I fully take your point that LEO see themselves as apart from and superior to the rest of us.

        Whenever I see some LEO apologist, Jack Dunphy springs to mind, arguing that ‘ACKshully the incident is not the fault of LEO’ it reminds me of Blade Runner where the CPT tells Decker ‘if ain’t a Cop then you are little people’.

      Any 1$6 year old who assaults someone or robs someone should be kept in jail.

      henrybowman in reply to CommoChief. | July 31, 2022 at 1:32 am

      Meh. I’m old enough to remember when it was “so important” to pass a bunch of laws assigning enhanced penalties for committing pretty much any crime against the “King’s men,” much more so than if they had been committed against us peasants.

      And, to my recollection, every one of them got passed.

      So what happened? Did they only apply to wypipo or sumpin?

The criminals know these Soros-DA’s are on their side.

taurus the judge | July 29, 2022 at 8:35 am

Don’t buy the lie- look at this for what it is and not what they want you to “think” it is. ( this is a very short and high level overview with a lot of details and specifics omitted for brevity)

Straight from the psyop guide on how to implement Marxism and take over a population. ( or otherwise state as “If you ever wondered why all of a sudden the left is all about releasing criminals but didn’t know what to ask”)

Marxism pushes the lie that humans are ‘good” but the evils like capitalism, class, race and “whatever” are the “justification” ( not the cause because “good” can do no evil) for the actions of people like this.

This accomplishes several things in parallel.

It makes the “state” (and puppet media) the final arbiters of what “good” and “right” are.

It frees up money ( no arrests means money for prisons and LE can be “redistributed” which is the basis for “defund the police” movements)

It keeps a degree of social turmoil and crime in the streets so it keeps people uneasy ( another psyop technique to wear down resistance and “hope” for real change by creating an “air” of despondency and frustration)

This is the driver as to what they are really doing and why they have to.

What we are seeing is a very complex integrated plan hitting every critical area at once to destroy the US system and Constitution as a prelude to a hostile takeover.

The RINO is the main driver of this in spite of what is immediately “obvious”

chrisboltssr | July 29, 2022 at 9:13 am

Oh, so NOW you want to do repeal “bail reform”, not after a man nearly assassinated a sitting a Congressman, but after a 16 year old beast up a cop.

And the immorality of the DA: Arrest a Bodega employee for defending himself from a black thug, but let a black thug go even after you see him in video beating up a cop.

Regression being sold as a “progress”.

So Adams only reacts when it is a cop assault? What about all the others?

Big, Dem led cities are going to collapse under their own weight of bad policy and crime.

This isn’t a matter of principle for the mayor (who has none). It’s fear of blowback from local law enforcement – not to mention fear that the already growing discontent from the fools who voted him in could lead them to elect a different unqualified democratic idiot next time.

He applied for a Darwin Award but was denied…

Where’s Jane Goodall when you need her?

    guyjones in reply to E Howard Hunt. | July 29, 2022 at 4:17 pm

    You’re out of line. This comment isn’t witty; just stupid.

    Leave the infantile bigotry to the Dumb-o-crats.

      E Howard Hunt in reply to guyjones. | July 29, 2022 at 6:34 pm

      You are apparently unaware of the indisputable IQ data. You are a cheap poseur. I love everyone, so I accept these unfortunates as the white man’s burden. You are the one living in an infantile fantasy. I wish it were not so, but hard facts must be faced by real men. Sleep well, pajama boy.

        CommoChief in reply to E Howard Hunt. | July 30, 2022 at 7:11 am


        That sort of bigoted thinking and allusion to racism is reminiscent of d/prog in the Jim Crow era; really Jane Goodall. Every person is equal in the eyes of our Creator and at law. The tortured and discredited notion of the ‘white mans burden’ produced a direct descendant in the ‘nation building’ and ‘exporting democracy’ policies of the Neocons who, let us always remember, are nearly uniformly Never Trump stooge d/prog stalking horses.

        Individuals vary in merit, competence, ability and virtue. IQ distribution has more variability within any particular ‘race’ than between ‘racial’ groups. Adopting the language and tribal philosophy of the d/prog who seek to divide us is putting yourself on the path of folly.

Some, Select [Black] Lives Matter is model of the Mandela’s Xhosa vs Zulu, Hutu vs Tutsi, Kenyan elite vs deplorables, etc. conflicts.

Lee Zeldin has promised to fire Bragg on his first day in office, if he’s elected. He can’t actually do that, but he can start the process on the first day, and Bragg can probably be gone inside a short time. I’m not sure exactly how short, but longer than a day.

    The state AG can at least step in to overrule his decision if not actually fire him.

      Milhouse in reply to Pasadena Phil. | July 29, 2022 at 11:11 am

      Yes, but who will be AG? Even if Zeldin somehow manages to be elected governor, there’s no guarantee the AG will also be a Republican.

      The governor can fire a county DA, it just takes longer than a day. I don’t know exactly how long, but I guess a few weeks.

    jb4 in reply to Milhouse. | July 29, 2022 at 11:28 am

    I think that it is almost too late for NY City … maybe if Zeldin wins they have a chance.
    – Because of the random crime everywhere, people just won’t travel in, including me, even for a relative’s birthday party.
    – A report recently out said that these cities have most lost families with young kids. The NYC public schools are hemorrhaging kids. Private school is not an option for most families.
    – There are too many large financial institutions there that, because of modern technology, do not need to be there. When, not if, they start really leaving, the roof will cave in on NY’s revenue base.
    – Most people are working from home, but still paying full NY City and State tax because of a NY City employer. That will not go on forever – more revenue loss coming.

      Edward in reply to jb4. | July 29, 2022 at 12:05 pm

      The city and state will fight tooth and claw to keep that unearned income from people sited outside either the city or state (or both).

“Allegedly”? 🧐

Pepsi_Freak | July 29, 2022 at 1:25 pm

Does NY have a recall provision similar to that in California? If not, that might be a good idea.

16-Year-Old Boy Who Allegedly Beat Up Cop Without Bail

Nothing “Allegedly” about it. It’s on video.

Outrageous. The cops who beat up the young boy are obviously racist. Handing out a “white power” beating just because this poor, young, boy didn’t have the money for a subway ride. NYC subways should be free. Charging for transportation is racist too.

Good for the DA, bad on the mayor. And here’s hoping the DA indicts the racist cops.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to mbecker908. | July 29, 2022 at 4:48 pm

    I saw a picture of another NYC cop severely beating a black man in a city park while his partner just stood there and watched.

    ( Poor Tyrone never DID quite get the hang of chess…)

At least the cop won the fight.

Anybody else notice how useful his partner was during that whole situation?

    WISteve in reply to Dathurtz. | July 30, 2022 at 6:32 am

    The female officer was tangled up with the female associate who should also be charged with assaulting the officer.
    New York is a disgusting cesspool of it’s own DemonRat creation.
