The Commissioner of the New York City Police Department, Keechant Sewell, has joined the growing chorus of voices calling for a reevaluation of the city’s bail reform laws, Your Content has learned.

In an interview with WABC Radio’s John Catsimatidis, Commissioner Sewell expressed her concerns about the current laws, referring to them as a manifestation of misguided “woke” ideology.

She highlighted the issue of minor offenders being released without bail, potentially leading to a higher risk of reoffending.

Commissioner Sewell also expressed her disapproval of the decriminalization of quality of life offenses, emphasizing that judges should have the discretion to determine whether prosecution is necessary.

Her remarks coincide with recent statistics from the NYPD, revealing a staggering 60 percent increase in crime rates in February compared to the previous year.

The city’s crime wave shows no signs of abating, as evidenced by a recent attack at the MoMa and two assaults on homeless individuals over the weekend.

Mayor Eric Adams has already joined Commissioner Sewell in calling for an end to the bail reform laws, signaling a growing consensus among city officials regarding the need for urgent action, according to The Daily Advent.
