NY Judge Uses COVID To Release Violent Offender Into Public Twice
There are some bad people out there that don't currently belong in society, and until they have been rehabilitated they need to be kept away from the general public. They need to be put in prison for their crimes or a mental health facility. But either way, they are separated from society to keep law-abiding citizens safe. But a New York judge doesn't seem to understand that. He ordered Jordon Benjamin be released after he stomped an elderly man to death for $1 and later stabbed a woman after being freed this spring due to the pandemic. But instead of learning the lesson that Benjamin is a threat to society, the Judge released him yet again.
"Benjamin is accused of stomping 60-year-old Juan Fresnada to death for 15 minutes on Christmas Eve 2019 together with a few friends after mugging him for just one dollar cash. One of the adult suspects was held without bail. Sixteen-year-old Benjamin was initially charged with second-degree murder and gang assault and was confined to a juvenile facility in Brooklyn, New York. However, like so many violent criminals, Benjamin was set free this past March by Supreme Court Justice Denis Boyle due to – you guessed it – coronavirus. Because, after all, in the minds of these perverted judges, there is a greater threat of a 16-year-old dying from coronavirus in juvenile detention than of an extremely violent youth victimizing someone else on the street.
Except, of course, the opposite is true. On Dec. 14, Benjamin allegedly stabbed Amya Hicks in the stomach as part of a random attack near his Bronx home. The young woman had to undergo surgery for her wounds, but by the time she got out of the hospital, Justice Denis Boyle had already sprung Benjamin from jail again, according to the New York Post.
It's unclear whether COVID was the consideration for release the second time or if this judge in general simply doesn't believe juveniles can be a threat to the public."
Why would Justice Denis Boyle do this? Does he not care about the people of New York? Does he not realize that Benjamin is clearly a danger to the public? It is really concerning that he put Benjamin's health over the safety of New Yorkers especially after the teen has now attacked again after being released just this past March. But it was ridiculous to release him in the first place due to the Corona Virus.
