New York’s new law preventing judges from ordering pre-trial and money bail for many misdemeanors and non-violent felony charges is a dream come true for criminals – so, much so one man arrested for the 139th time is declaring, “I can’t be stopped,” Rev. Franklin Graham said Monday.

“Don’t lawmakers see that New York’s bail reform law is encouraging crime?” Rev. Graham asks in a tweet linking to a Fox News story about a New Yorker’s comments following his latest arrest:

“Don’t lawmakers see that New York’s bail reform law is encouraging crime, not enforcing the laws? It may be a dream come true for some criminals, but this is a nightmare for law enforcement and for innocent citizens.”

“Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped,” Charles Barry reportedly yelled to journalists as police took him to be booked, Fox News reports in “NYC subway thief thanks Democrats after his 139th arrest, release: ‘Bail reform, it’s lit!’”:

A New York City man who’s now been arrested 139 times thanked Democrats for guaranteeing his immediate release despite repeatedly swiping hundreds of dollars from unsuspecting subway commuters since the state’s new bail reform law went into effect Jan. 1.

….

“Bail reform, it’s lit!” Barry yelled to reporters Thursday outside the NYPD Transit District 1 headquarters in the Columbus Circle station before officers transported him to Manhattan Central Booking. “It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”
