NY man accused of burglary spree released with no bail. Guess what happened next — More insanity from the Left. They fail at basic economics, so they don’t realize that taking away consequences drives more bad behavior.
I just know some of you will faint from shock when you learn that, upon his release, Conway headed out and committed his fifth alleged burglary in four days, breaking into a Bagel Boss in Carle Place and stealing the cash registers. The total amount of damage to five different businesses added up fast, costing far more than the small amount of money the thief managed to abscond with.
But under this insane new law, there was nothing the police or the courts could do. Every time he was captured and charged, he had to be set loose on the community once again. It’s not as if the cops don’t have more than enough to keep them busy in New York these days. They need to be out monitoring the weekly F*** the Police marches in Brooklyn. That’s when they’re not busy having people sucker punch them at intersections or douse them with buckets of water while they try to arrest someone. (Perps were released immediately without bail in both cases.)
Do you know what happens when you tell criminals that you’re not going to take their crimes seriously or “abuse them” with incarceration? They commit more crimes. The fact that the powers that be in New York couldn’t figure this out in advance is mind-boggling. Of course the property crime rates are going to go up. It was inevitable. And it’s the law-abiding citizens of the city and the business owners who pay the price for it.
Trump Slams Democrats, Media For Describing Terrorist Soleimani As “Wonderful Human Being” — Good for him. The reaction by Leftist media and politicians has been predictable yet sickening. A simple contrast to their reactions to Bin Laden’s death shows their hypocrisy and hatred of our country.
Shopping in California — California has basically legalized shoplifting. People were on video just grabbing clothes and leaving the store. I saw the same thing in person in Houston: A guy just grabbed a case of beer and walked out a CVS and got in his car. The employees didn’t even bother to call the police.
Australia Police Begin Massive Criminal Investigation into Bushfires — But but but Bernie Sanders said it was climate change and that I have to give up my car and electricity!
“About 85 per cent are related to human activity, 13 per cent confirmed arson and 37 per cent suspected arson,” he said. “The remainder are usually due to reckless fire lighting or even just children playing with fire.”
Ricky Gervais Drops ‘Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself’ Joke at Golden Globes — Sweet. Gervais deserves a Nobel Prize for nailing these phonies, especially the part in bold. He later nailed them again for deliberately staying silent on Weinstein. Enjoy it all.
“Spoiler alert, season 2 is on the way, so in the end he obviously didn’t kill himself – just like Jeffrey Epstein,” said Gervais, before adding, “Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care, you had to make your own way here in your own plane didn’t you?”
In another quip, Gervais slammed actors for calling themselves “woke” while taking money from Apple, Amazon and Disney, who use slave labor.“ If ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent,” joked Gervais.“ If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and $&!# off,” he added.
Will Gervais be invited back again after this? Unlikely.
Guest Post: Open Letter to Julie Roys — Great letter about abuses in the mega-church model and the impact on smaller churches. Hybels and MacDonald were incredibly corrupt yet got away with it for decades.
(A)nyone who tried to pastor a church in the Chicago area in the past 30 years felt the influence of Willow Creek and Harvest like the manager of a Mom-and-Pop store feels the influence of Walmart and Amazon. Two near-orbiting energy-draining black holes.
Stop Climate Change Alarmism — It is a dangerous power grab by evil Leftist politicians and their ignorant followers.
“Fossil fuel energy has not taken a naturally safe climate and made it unnaturally dangerous; it’s taken our naturally dangerous climate and made it unnaturally safe.”
“By opposing every affordable, abundant, reliable form of energy, the Green New Deal won’t protect us from an existential threat; it is an existential threat.”
Best of the Bee – they are having a great week!
California Robber Agrees To Come Back In 10 Days When Victim’s Gun Purchase Has Gone Through | The Babylon Bee — Great point here. I knew someone who got a death threat because a child molester rightly inferred that she had turned him in. He would stand out in the street to menace her. And the Leftists wanted her to have to wait to buy a gun, f they let her have one at all!
