NYC Released Attempted Murderer With ‘No Bail’ – Feds Say He Then Committed Three More Shootings

Remember when New York State Democrats said that their new “no cash bail” law would not apply to violent crimes? Someone in the city’s creaking criminal justice system didn’t get the memo. Feds say New York City gang banger Darrius Sutton, 23, committed three more shootings…after he’d been released without bail on charges of attempted murder with a firearm in an earlier case.

Indeed, both Democrats and the mainstream media assured New Yorkers that the new, radical plan to eliminate bail for most crimes would not apply to violent crimes. Here’s a random report of 8.9M Google returns for “New York no cash bail law won’t apply to violent criminals” – this one from Spectrum Local News in Central NY:

Starting in January, judges across New York will have less discretion when a defendant first appears. There’s no more cash bail for most misdemeanor and nonviolent felony arrests.

The Gray Lady wrote:

Supporters of the bail law say critics are being alarmist: Judges will still be able to set bail for almost all violent felonies, they point out, and the old law unfairly discriminated against the poor.

In fact Slate, in a case of spectacularly poor prognostication, said the new law might actually reduce crime. In a story headlined, ‘Bail Reform May Make New York Safer,’ Slate wrote:

On Wednesday, New York joined a growing number of states that have restricted the money bail system to limit the number of people who are in jail solely because they can’t afford to pay their way out. While not as sweeping as some other states’ reforms, the new law automatically releases people charged with most misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies without making them post cash bail.

Prior to the passage of the law, low-level defendants were routinely held in jail simply because they could not afford bail, not because their release posed a risk to society. This reflexive use of money bail tore families apart, ruined lives, wasted millions of taxpayer dollars, and ultimately made New Yorkers less safe…

Any reform that means locking fewer people up inevitably inspires a punitive backlash and concerns about public safety. But the bail reform law may actually make New York safer.

Uh huh. And if you like your healthcare plan you can keep your healthcare plan.

Despite video of gangster Darrius Sutton shooting another man, prosecutors chose to release him without bond despite a charge of attempted murder. So what did Mr. Sutton do from there?

Feds say he fired shots in three drive-bys, wounding seven more people.

From Fox News(beware of autoplay video)

An alleged gang member in New York City was involved in three drive-by shootings just weeks after he was released without bail following an attempted murder arrest, according to reports.

Darrius Sutton, 23, was previously nabbed in connection with a shooting on May 16 in Brooklyn’s East New York, where Justice Department officials said he shot and seriously injured a man, according to the New York Daily News. He was reportedly charged with attempted murder, assault with intent to cause injury and criminal possession of a weapon…

Since his release, the alleged Bloods gang member committed three drive-by shootings in the month of July alone, federal prosecutors said, according to the report.

The feds have had enough of New York City’s bungling prosecutors. They’ve taken custody of Mr. Darrius and they won’t be releasing him without bond.

Court papers show Sutton was previously convicted on March 9, 2015, for assault with intent to cause bodily injury. He was sentenced to two years in prison.

Sutton was arrested by federal law enforcement on July 29 and charged for possessing a weapon despite being a felon, according to multiple reports. He is being held at a federal jail in Brooklyn New York and faces up to a decade behind bars.

Americans have seen the results of social justice-based prosecutors and defunded law enforcement. And they’re voting with their wallets at gun stores all across the country.

The more the general public sees how these radical “soft on crime” prosectors utterly fail to deter violent crime or prosecute criminals, the more chance it will lead to vigilante justice on the streets.

      John Botch uput am ideat! The definition of vigilanty justus to go after someone you think committed a crime. That person without using the court system then kills him. That is vigilante justus. On the other hand defending yourself until that threat is no longer a threat to you or others. That is called self-defense.

    AND??? Sounds to me like Darrius is just another victim of a “white supremacist” justice system… After all “Boys WILL be boys”…

    1. avatar Jim from LI says:

      Except actual Socialist and Communist states aren’t shy about prosecuting and severely punishing actual criminals. What these politicians are bringing about is anarchy.

      1. avatar James Campbell says:

        The leftard politicians coddle and enable the “useful idiots”, creating the anarchy that destroys the current system and norms.
        This is the stage where the leftard political leaders like their followers having access to firearms, and ignore firearm laws that the idiots violate (combined with creating no bail laws and automatic release after arrest).

        Once the Socialist and Communist states are established and secured, the leaders aren’t shy about prosecuting and severely punishing actual criminals.
        This is when they DON’T want the once “useful idiots” armed.
        They are redefined as just “idiots”, serving almost NO useful purpose other then filling mass graves.
        Nothing new here, Marx explained this in detail.

        Fat chance, they’re already screwing up other states, just aren’t paying as much in taxes.

    The Communist’s Cuomo,DiBlasio wonder why residents are fleeing New York chity and state and won’t return, well duh.

    1. avatar Optimistic Engineer says:

      This won’t impact tax receipts… nope…

      Time for constitutional carry. Yes, that will temporarily spike shootings. But the problem will be solved.

        But only if the five families agree, and constitutional carry is a threat to their traditional business methods.

  10. avatar Shire-man says:

    If he was shooting at white people they could at least claim reparations/justice but he’s just out shooting at more black people. So I guess NYC hates black people? Neat.

      Sorry, their black lives don’t matter.

  11. avatar The Crimson Pirate says:

    Just eliminate all gun laws and decent people will handle the problem.

    But it is beyond clear at this point that those advocating releasing criminals and not prosecuting rioters care nothing for the safety of ordinary people and are doing the things they are doing as part of a larger agenda.

      It was bound to happen eventually, not due to politics, but because the NRA has become little more than a bloated donation machine that didn’t actually want to stand for anything other than fearing mongering for money.

        The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
        The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
        The best lack all conviction, while the worst
        Are full of passionate intensity.”

  26. avatar Ronald west says:

    In all fairness any an all that was involved in this stupid suggestion to release violent criminals with or without bail should be relieved of duty ASAP, and charged with attempted murder, ban from ever working in any public offices every again. It’s the same as telling someone it’s alright to comment crimes, for we won’t keep you long, plus you get a get out of jail free card.

  27. avatar Hydguy says:

    Another upstanding Democrat..

    I don’t care anymore. Let all the prisoners out of the jails in NYC, after walling the city off.
    Let the criminals do what they want, and after there is no one but the criminals left, flood the city.

  28. avatar ObiDon says:

    Do Black Lives Matter to Darrius Sutton?

  29. avatar possum says:

    The problem starts with the courts not following the letter of the law. The law says, judged by a group of your peers, so that means gangbangers should be judged by gangbangers. Then when they walk out and get shot for robbing a store the store owner should be judged by robbed store owners.

    1. avatar Sam I Am says:

      “Sixth Amendment – U.S. Constitution. Sixth Amendment – Rights of Accused in Criminal Prosecutions. Amendment Text | Annotations . In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed,…”

      The wording states “impartial jury”, not “jury of peers”. “Jury of peers” has been a rubric since I can remember.

      A constitutional requirement for “Jury of peers” would come really close to balancing the power of the state against the accused. An accused may not have the resources to mount a defense on par with the resources of the state to bring charges, and a “jury of peers” would be a real hurdle for government to overcome. In such a situation, “jury nullification” would be a serious element in trials.

  30. avatar Hannibal says:

    So, this story isn’t what it’s made out to be here or in headlines. The guy WAS arrested for attempted murder, but the witness recanted. They no longer had any evidence to hold him.

    So unless you want the police to be able to arrest you and toss you in prison for months without evidence, this isn’t the case to point to about ‘bail reform.’
