New York Man Arrested Three Times In One Day Under New Bail Reform Law

Scott Nolan was arrested and released three times in several hours under New York's new bail reform law.

Just a week after a New York man with 139 arrests was released under New York’s new bail-reform law thanked Democrats, the police union protested another case where a man, Scott Nolan, was arrested three times in one day but released each time under the new law. Nolan’s criminal record is 50 pages long.

According to WRBG-TV, Nolan was arrested on Monday at 9 a.m. in Troy on suspicion of shoplifting and given a court appearance ticket. Then at 2:30 p.m., he was arrested again for an alleged assault and again released. Then two hours later, he was arrested again for hitting someone with a brick and given a third ticket for a court appearance.

Police are outraged that they no longer have the ability to hold such recidivists for bail.

This controversy follows the arrest of another recidivist, Charles Barry, 56, who could not be held despite his 139 arrests in New York City. As he left the Manhattan Criminal Court, he celebrated and thanked Democrats stating “I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me! It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”

In 2020 alone, Barry has been arrested six times and freed six times. In a statement that is being repeated by many police officers, he screamed “Bail reform, it’s lit!”

The bail reform legislation has worthy purposes. However, it would seem that such reforms could take extreme recidivists into account, particularly in the midst of a crime spree. What is clear is that the law is likely to become an issue in the 2020 election with celebratory recidivists like Barry in the news.

  1. ” You can’t stop me! It’s the Democrats! ”

    We debate silly things but this issue is real affecting real people. This is the type of destructive legislation pushed by Democrats. Where is the outcry from our Democratic list members? Don’t they believe in law and order? It seems the anser is no. Last night one of the cadidates demeaned all Americans by saying our future was linked to the people that came here illegally. In essence that means she feels Americans are worthless. Aren’t there any Democrats left that have a head on their shoulders?

    1. Out here in CA thieves now are careful to keep their thefts under $950, I think the limit is. Nothing happens to them. These Democrat policies have created predators against a helpless people.

      I have worked with so many H1B visa holders. They had to go back to their home country at regular intervals. They spent great time and effort to follow the law. Why? Apparently immigration laws are human rights abuses. Anyone who wants to come here, for any reason, can – sex traffickers, drug and gun runners, rapists, and a whole bunch of people who want to work under the table, cutting out legal residents and citizens who would earn minimum wage and benefits. Even this latter bunch, many of whom are good people, unwittingly cause a negative consequence. They fuel the collapse of law abiding businesses, who cannot compete with under the table wages. They create long lasting poverty in black neighborhoods, who cannot compete with under the table wages. They exacerbate the housing crisis in CA. All these people have to live and work somewhere, which means they take the place of someone else who would live and work there.

      It is irresponsible to encourage, enable, and promote illegal immigration. There is no valid reason to encourage a black market human smuggling trade, or to claim the country has no reason to control the flow of immigrants. A responsible immigration policy would:

      1. Screen out criminals and terrorist.
      2. Test and treat diseases
      3. Modify the flow of immigration to meet the jobs market and housing availability. For instance, one year they might need more H1B skilled visa holders. Another year they might need more unskilled labor. Simply dumping mass amounts of unskilled labor to compete for entry level jobs is not fair to the nation’s poor legal residents and citizens.

  2. Start to carry for your own protection. “A kind word, and a .45 will accomplish more than a kind word.” ANIMAL, ANGLICO USMC

  3. If you are a conservative and still believe in the rule of law, GET OUT while you still can. NY will soon become “escape from New York” and you will be a victim.

  4. The bail reform legislation has worthy purposes.

    No it doesn’t. The motor behind these laws is an objection over status. Law enforcement consists of deplorables (police officers) enforcing community standards (i.e. the conventional opinions of deplorables) as preferred and countenanced by deplorables (that’s ordinary people) contra Democratic Party mascots. This bothers the clerisy which provides ideational content for vacuous Democratic Party politicians, because it incorporates people of lower status (that’s deplorables) enforcing standards on people under the clerisy’s patronage without the permission of the clerisy. It also bothers black nationalists among the body of Democratic Party politicians, because deplorables, being peasants, are enforcing standards against people of higher social status (that is, their constituents). The pretentions of the clerisy re-inforce the vanity of the black nationalists.

    There is not one good thing about the discourse in the Democratic Party on criminal justice. These bozos, for no defensible reason, want to regenerate the 1970s. Those of us who lived through the 1970s want to strangle them for this.

    1. “In 2015, the death of Kalief Browder, a young man from the Bronx who spent three years incarcerated at Rikers Island [for stealing a backpack] on $3,000 bail and tragically took his own life shortly after his release from jail, inspired real momentum for bail reform in New York.”

      I’m not defending the bail reform that was enacted in NY, or the way it’s being implemented, but there were real problems that needed to be addressed. It’s unjust to incarcerate innocent people, which is anyone who hasn’t actually been convicted of a crime. If the law does allow certain classes of suspects to be held, then it’s unjust to free some and hold others based on their ability to pay a sum of money. I’d personally prefer the status quo ante to what NY has done, but it wasn’t done for no reason.

      1. I take your first paragraph with a grain of salt.

        That aside, if you want to correct real problems, work it so that courts are fact-finding venues, not venues for lawyers to play footsie with each other. As recently as 1985, the median time to dispose of a case was 75 days in New York. For felonies which went to trial, the median time from arrest to verdict was 13 months.

        This will not be done because the motor of this is not an objection to clotted procedures.

        1. I’m only agreeing with Turley when he writes, “The bail reform legislation has worthy purposes.” If nothing else, the reduction or elimination of cash bail is a worthy purpose, and I would expect every freedom-loving, power-of-state-hating, follower of Turley to agree. (He reported on it when California eliminated cash bail, without expressing an opinion.) As for the rest of it, I agree it’s a mess, and not entirely motivated by a quest for blind justice.

          1. “Woman accused of assaulting 3 Jewish women arrested again day after release
            By Tina Moore and Kenneth Garger
            A Brooklyn miscreant accused of slapping three Orthodox Jewish women last week struck again on Sunday and was busted for assaulting another woman, police said.

            A day after she was released without bail on charges stemming from the Friday attack, Tiffany Harris was charged with assault for slugging a 35-year-old in the face on Eastern Parkway near Underhill Avenue in Prospect Heights at about 9:15 a.m., according to police.”

          2. I’m only agreeing with Turley when he writes, “The bail reform legislation has worthy purposes.”

            And you’re both wrong.

  5. In saner times, the officials pushing this war on the public (the Dim Crime Party) would have been dragged from their offices, lashed to poles in the city square and christened with hot tar and feathers. Now the public just tut-tuts away and takes it. Says something about life in an environment where you feel you have no control. That’ll change.

    1. Upstate voters tolerate a great deal of mediocrity. Without a doubt, the push for this is coming from New York City, wherein lives over 40% of the state’s population and the majority of Democratic legislators.

  6. “Then at 2:30 p.m., he was arrested again for an alleged assault and again released. Then two hours later, he was arrested again for hitting someone with a brick and given a third ticket for a court appearance.”

    This is what is called white trash

    ““I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me! It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”

    this is what is called a n!gg8r

    The Democrats are in a whole lot of trouble for this election cycle. fun times.
    Defending white trash and racist black thugs who refer to whites as crac*ers appeal only to one audience: cult followers of the DNC

  7. Sooo, ThugMan said, “As he left the Manhattan Criminal Court, he celebrated and thanked Democrats stating “I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me! It’s the Democrats!”

    We should listen to him and heed his words! After all, he is a Person of Color, and they are sooo smart and sooo in touch with the Universe!

    I am reminded of one of my world-famous poems I wrote back in the Trayvon Martin days:

    My Goodnight Prayer
    A Heartfelt Psalm by Squeeky Fromm

    Now I lay me down to sleep,
    I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
    And if my liberal friends get mugged,
    Please let it be a young Black thug!
    So when they get a busted snout,
    And all their brains are running out,
    They’ll gently go to those good nights
    As Champions of Civil Rights!
    Amen.

      1. That’s your view. There is plenty of evidence out there of a different justice system for the two parties. You can wear a blindfold and ear plugs but the facts are innumerable and until the justice system is held to account it will remain a get out of jail card for Democrats and a “lock ‘em up forever” for Republicans.
