The NYPD says about 275 of those released inmates have been rearrested approximately 550 times, but the department could not say how that compares to normal recidivism.
“We recommended 96 percent of that population not to be released, it was ignored and now we have more victims and we see the lawlessness on the streets,” added NYPD Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael LiPetri.
