NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton Shares Commonsense Warning About Largest Federal Prison Release Ever

Between Oct. 30 to Nov. 2, President Obama announced he would release 6,000 inmates in the largest one-time release of federal prisoners ever.

In response, New York City Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner Bill Bratton said, “We have to be very concerned about who we’re letting out. One of the issues of concern is when people go to jail, often times they go to jail with negotiated charges, if you will, so that somebody that is in jail that seems like they’re non-violent, they may in fact have crimes of violence in their record."

The commissioner also said the public needs to come to the realization that some criminals are beyond rehabilitation. He referenced Randolph Holder, 33, an NYPD detective who was allegedly killed last month by a man who had been arrested 28 times prior.

Bratton went on to say “Judges need to – and district attorneys, and we the police, and the public – need to take into account that some people, I’m sorry, they’re criminals. Some people are bad people, and we need to separate the bad people from the good people."
