In June 2020, Bloods gang member Alexis Dubouchet allegedly tried to kill Samuel Diaz, then his supervisor on the New York Metropolis Housing Authority. Based on police, Dubouchet used a folding knife to stab Diaz at the back of his neck and twice within the head, yelling, “You wanna f- -k with my life?”
Though Dubouchet was a profession legal with 20 prior arrests and was charged with tried homicide within the assault on Diaz, he was freed on bail.
Now prosecutors say he murdered somebody whereas awaiting trial within the Diaz case, allegedly taking pictures Anthony Rios, 38, within the head early on July 25.
Samuel Diaz is the son of Democratic Metropolis Councilman Ruben Diaz Sr. and the brother of Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
Ruben Diaz is livid that Dubouchet was allowed to go free after the assault on his son, and that one other particular person is now useless. He blames fellow Democrats for passing lenient bail “reform” and writes for The Submit that extra Hispanic and black residents will vote towards the Democrats except they’re saved protected.
It’s best to know that as a result of ongoing efforts by New York Democrats to help criminals as an alternative of our neighborhood, the Republican Occasion is trying higher and higher to many Hispanic voters.
It horrifies me to know that New York Hispanic Democrats within the state Senate and Meeting have voted to launch profession criminals and drug addicts into our streets with no deterrents in place, placing our neighborhood at risk.
Thanks to those Democrats, bail is a factor of the previous, and criminals in addition to criminals-to-be know the way engaging lawlessness is.
Every night time, as we watch any information station, we get to see video clips of fellow New Yorkers getting overwhelmed, robbed, molested and pushed in entrance of subways. On the possibility that any of those perpetrators are arrested, the revolving doorways on the courthouses allow them to out instantly to proceed to wreak havoc.
We’d wish to level the finger at judges and district attorneys, however the actual culprits are our Democratic elected officers who voted to help what they name “bail reform.” Not like Republicans, they continue to be decided to guard criminals — not us.
It’s liable for our authorities to arrest, prosecute and incarcerate prisoners once they deserve it. It isn’t accountable to allow them to free with out penalties to proceed the lawlessness we have now witnessed over the previous few months.
Authorities’s first accountability is to guard its folks. Our authorities is just not defending us. Our Democratic elected officers have apparently turned their backs on our households and enterprise homeowners.
Don’t neglect that earlier than New York’s Democrats voted to defund the police, they remained unabashedly silent as a “disrespect the police” motion grew.
The courageous women and men within the NYPD have been additional threatened with violence by fearless criminals who don’t have anything to fret about from the court docket system. The regulation, as not too long ago amended by New York’s Democrats, is on their aspect: The police are now not capable of get the weapons off the road, and they’re now not capable of take the gunmen off the road.
My household, my metropolis
I write this in anger as a result of my son was virtually killed by a profession legal who was out on bail after greater than 20 arrests, after which lastly killed another person’s son.
I additionally write this as a proud Hispanic who cares deeply about my neighborhood. I care about our senior residents, taxi drivers, bodega homeowners and our households who may wish to step out of their entrance door with out concern of getting shot or attacked. Dad and mom wish to ship their youngsters to highschool, or to the park, or to cross the road with out concern of the happenstance of catching a bullet which missed its goal and was meant for some legal.
Those that efficiently modified the bail legal guidelines could attempt to pair it with all of their pie-in-the-sky needs that society will probably be much less depending on police and would revenue extra from social applications. Whereas we look forward to these applications to be put in place, the kid on a bus going to highschool, the meals supply man on a motorbike, and the previous woman strolling to church will stay susceptible targets for criminals. These criminals know they don’t even need to flee the scene. They’ll simply stroll away and go loot somebody retailer.
As a Pentecostal minister who believes in redemption, and as somebody who has been given a second likelihood, I don’t consider it’s accountable in any respect to allow this unchecked legal exercise. If the Democrats don’t instantly right the scenario, our Hispanic voters will know to show to the Republicans for assist.
I’m Councilman Rev. Ruben Diaz, and that is What You Ought to Know.
