New York City is plagued with looting as protests rage following the death of George Floyd, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY) “bail reform” policy will allow jailed looters to be immediately freed from jail.

Mayor Bill de Blasio also faced backlash after refusing to deploy the U.S. National Guard to tackle looters who ravaged shops and stores.

But those looters will now be back on the streets of New York.

Over 400 people have been arrested for looting commercial businesses, according to The New York Times.

Almost all of them will be released immediately after their arraignments in court.

Cuomo’s bail reform law essentially eliminates bail for a number of nonviolent and violent crimes, including the following:

  • Second-degree manslaughter
  • Aggravated vehicular assault
  • Third-degree assault
  • Promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child
  • Criminally negligent homicide
  • Aggravated vehicular homicide, and around 100 other crimes.

Those who were arrested for looting will be charged with 3rd-degree burglary of a commercial building.

The charge is a class D felony which no longer requires the suspect to pay any bail to be released from police custody.

The news comes after a car was driven into a crowd of law enforcement officials in Buffalo, New York, on Tuesday.

Earlier in the week, Mayor Bill de Blasio's daughter was arrested during the protests in Manhattan, New York.

Police arrested Chiara de Blasio near 12th Street and Broadway on Saturday.

The New York Mayor's daughter was nabbed after police declared an unlawful assembly in the area, the New York Post reported.
