At this point, hate crime suspect Tiffany Harris is making an absolute mockery of the New York City criminal justice process under Democrats.
Arrested on New Year’s Eve for the third time in less than a week, Harris represents a living, breathing embodiment of the progressive left’s failures in the city.
First arrested for slapping three Orthodox Jewish women in an apparent anti-Semitic attack Friday, Harris reportedly confessed to the crime.
“Yes, I slapped them. I cursed them out. I said ‘F-U, Jews,’” Harris admitted to police after Friday’s incident, according to a criminal complaint.
One day after being released without bail, Harris allegedly attacked another woman.
Police charged her on Sunday with assault for punching a 35-year-old woman in the face, about a mile away from the first incident. It’s unclear if the victim, who suffered swelling and bruising to her right eye from the beating, is Jewish.
Harris was released again, only to be picked up for a third time on New Year’s Eve, according to the New York Post.

The arrest Tuesday night came after an arrest warrant issued earlier in the day when Harris allegedly failed to comply with court-ordered monitoring.
The Post reported: “She had allegedly blown off an appointment with social workers at Brooklyn Justice Initiatives, which runs a supervised release program that helps defendants make their court dates and connect with such services as drug treatment and mental health counseling.”
Fox News’ Ed Henry referenced Harris while interviewing New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who defended the process that allowed her to go free — New York City’s new bail reform law allows suspects charged with violent crimes to be quickly released.
Remarkably, as Henry noted, New York City gives people getting out of jail free Metro cards to ride the subways, two $25 debit cards, and a burner cell phone.
The mayor said the stunning taxpayer-funded giveaway was “trying to get people out of crime and keep them out of crime.”
When Henry brought up Harris as a beneficiary of the program, the Democrat waved the incident off saying he doesn’t know what happened with her.
Police reportedly received at least six reports last week of suspected anti-Semitic attacks on Jews in New York City, for a total of eight since Dec. 13. Five people were stabbed at Hannukah party at a rabbi’s home in a densely Jewish community just north of the city.
Mayor de Blasio responded by upping police presence in neighborhoods with large Jewish populations, not that it matters if the city is going to release assailants as fast as they arrest them.
Harris was expected to be arraigned Wednesday morning, which means she may already be out of jail for the third time in 5 days.
Her attorney, Lisa Schreibersdorf, claimed negative publicity prompted the judge to issue the warrant.
“She went to the office as instructed, gave the information she needed, clearly she wanted to leave,” Schreibersdorf said, according to the Post. “Anyone would want to leave in that circumstance, no one felt she did anything wrong.”
