The Issue: A person who was freed with no bail after allegedly breaking tables with a hatchet at McDonald’s.

Once once more, our fearless chief in Albany is trying to shift the blame from herself and the Albany Democrats to anybody else for the discharge of the miscreant who not too long ago rampaged by means of a Manhattan McDonald’s (“Hatchet man: ‘Not unhinged,’ ” Sept. 20).

She mentioned that the discharge was as a result of prosecutor’s determination to scale back the felony felony mischief cost to a misdemeanor and to drop the menacing cost altogether.

This is just not true. Under our bail-reform legal guidelines, not one of the unique expenses was bail eligible, and not one of the defendant’s acts would help a bail-eligible cost.

Bail reform is the issue. It should be repealed, not merely tweaked. The solely means this may occur is that if Hochul and the Albany Democrats are voted out of workplace this November.

According to the governor, the axe man was set free of jail as a result of DA Bragg doesn’t suppose a person wielding an axe is harmful, which is smart to New York’s elite liberals.

I’m glad he didn’t know concerning the sale on energy drills, saws and staple weapons at Home Depot.

Gov. Hochul, when will or not it’s time so that you can hearth Bragg?

Michael Palacios has mentioned he’s “not unhinged.”
Kevin C. Downs for The New York Post

Our so-called specialists both don’t have any earthly concept learn how to cope with the crime at hand or they know learn how to deter crime however lack the backbone, integrity, and management to say one thing.

Meanwhile, they should persuade the general public they’re doing one thing. It’s known as diversionary techniques. Ever heard of speedy justice and punishment?

A hatchet is as lethal as it may be, and must you use it in a restaurant by breaking glass and waving it with anger, you’re going to be strolling free the very subsequent day.

The irony is: Michael Palacios, the person who allegedly prompted the destruction and swung the hatchet, believed he had each proper to his actions. He calls it self-defense. Of course, his reasoning is askew.

Gov. Hochul and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg have to get some order on this city earlier than somebody loses a physique half.

The Issue: Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday following her loss of life on the age of 96 earlier this month.

Monday was a really unhappy day for the royal household, the individuals of England and the remainder of the world, however what a fantastic sendoff for Queen Elizabeth II (“Godspeed to The Queen,” Sept. 20).

The funeral was excellent — if there may be such a factor. Rest in peace.

Thousands upon hundreds of individuals lined your entire route of the funeral procession so they might get one last glimpse and pay their respects to their beloved queen.
