Police in New York City list the “Worst of the Worst,” including repeat offenders with more than 95 arrests.

On Fox News @ Night, Democratic strategist Kevin Walling and former deputy assistant attorney general John Yoo talk about the recently discovered effects of NYC’s bail reform on arrests.

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! As the NYPD struggles with bail reform, which it claims stymies its attempts to make New York City safer, the department has produced a list of its 10 “Worst of the Worst” recidivists, some of whom have more than 95 arrests on file.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) has disclosed details about 10 repeat offenders who are considered to be “notable high volume offenders.” The person with the most arrests—101—has been detained 88 times since bail reform was implemented in 2020, according to the police department.

Just this week, amid a rise in arrests and a number of high-profile attacks on law enforcement and the public, the NYPD and Mayor Eric Adams denounced bail reform laws as “crazy” and “dangerous.”

Adams told reporters, “They say the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect different results. “Our legal system is completely bonkers. It is damaging, risky, and destroying our city’s infrastructure.

The department provided information on each individual but did not give their names. Below are details for the top five repeat offenders according to the NYPD.

RECOIDIVIST No. 1 101 arrests later, “Recidivist #1” had 15 convictions, three of which were for felonies, according to the police. According to reports, two of those convictions were for violent felonies.

Police claimed that they skipped court “at least 14 times.”
“Recidivist #1 was detained 74 times, all in Manhattan, for petty and grand larceny, according to the department.
#2 RECIdivist Second-highest arrestee “Recidivist #2” claims 96 arrests, including 67 since bail reform was implemented in 2020, according to police.
They have an astounding 44 convictions, earning the police department’s moniker of “predicate felon.” Police reported that they have missed 26 court dates without excuse.

#3 RECIDIVIST The No. 3 criminal under consideration has been arrested 58 times; all but three occurred following the passage of bail reform in 2020, according to police.

They were found guilty four times, all for misdemeanors, and there are currently 18 commercial retail theft cases pending, according to the police.

RECIDIVIST #4 According to police, “Recidivist #4” has made 62 career arrests, including 59 after the passage of the 2020 bail reform. They are said to have skipped court 21 times and been found guilty 22 times.

Police reported that 20 of their convictions were for misdemeanors. According to police, the person currently has seven open cases.

5th RECIdivist According to the NYPD, the fifth repeat offender on their list has been arrested 23 times, all of which have been reported between June 2022 and the present.

They were supposedly arrested for burglary fifteen times.


Most courts now use supervised release programs after the 2020 bail reform bill abolished cash bail choices for most nonviolent offenses and misdemeanors.

Bill de Blasio, Adams’ predecessor, created supervised release, also referred to as “non-monetary release,” in 2016. The program has “a demonstrated track record of getting the vast majority of participants back to court and providing links to essential pre-trial assistance,” according to the De Blasio administration’s assessment of it.

Arrested people who pose a flight risk may be released under community supervision under the municipal program. One of the office’s primary goals, according to the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice in New York City ( MOCJ ), was to “guarantee a person’s return to court.”

Just before the new law went into effect, the supervised release program was enlarged, eliminating all qualifying conditions that would have previously stopped a judge from releasing some criminal offenders on supervised release. Those charged of violent offenses, in turn, were entitled to consideration for supervised release.

According to data issued in January by the New York State Unified Court System, 23% of criminal suspects were arrested again between January 2020 and June 2021 on felony charges. According to data, 41% of offenders were later arrested on new criminal charges, whether they were felonies or misdemeanors.
