(excerpt from CBS New York - Jan 21 2020)
MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — There is a new chorus of calls for changes to bail reform in New York state, just three weeks after it took effect.
On Tuesday, police, sheriffs, and lawmakers gathered on Long Island to launch a coalition to recommend changes, CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported.
“We predicted disaster and now you see the results,” said Kevin Black, president of the Nassau Police Superior Officers Association.
There were bipartisan calls from Long Island leaders for what they call common sense changes to bail reform.
“What we’ve seen is too much all at once,” Nassau County Executive Laura Curran said.
