New York Subway Thief Arrested 139 Times Praises the New Bail Reform Law, 'It's Lit'
A New York subway robber named Charles Barry thinks New York’s new bail reform law is great. It works out very well for him since he is able to commit crimes and isn’t required to post bail each time.
Barry’s recent arrest did require him to spend 36 hours in police custody, but there weren’t any other consequences after he stole cash from people on the subway.
“I’m famous! I take $200-$300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!” Barry bragged to a New York Daily News reporter.
The subway robber credits the Democrats for making his life easier.
“Bail reform, it’s lit! It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!” said Barry.
The 56-year-old man has been in state prison six different times, and has been arrested six times since January 1, 2020, the date the new bail reform went into effect. The policy eliminated cash bail and pre-trial detention for misdemeanors and some felonies.
Since Barry’s crime did not involve violence, he was released without bail. He was booked for stealing money from people who were using the Medtro Card vending machines. Barry had two outstanding warrants because of his missed court dates, but it did not suffer any consequences.
Barry’s recent arrest was his 139th time behind bars. According to records obtained by the Daily News, Barry’s criminal history includes six felonies, 87 misdemeanors, and 21 missed court hearings.
If you’re traveling in New York, keep your wallet and purse close, and be aware of your surroundings at all times. If you use the subway, you should also get a good look at Barry and steer clear of him.
“I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!” shouts Charles Barry after his 139th known arrest. He praises NY’s “bail reform” law, and the Democrats behind it.
