Man with extensive rap sheet allegedly beats 2 NYC women after he’s released to streets, then set loose again

In yet another case study in the anti-citizen, pro-thug policy that is criminal bail reform, a homeless New York City man who was previously charged with assault and released in 2020 allegedly battered two women in the Upper West Side on Thursday, only to be charged and released, again.

Darrell Johnson, 23, reportedly left one of his victims so badly bruised and beaten that she now has a “disfiguring laceration,” law enforcement officials told the  New York Post on Monday.

Johnson has a rap sheet with more than a dozen arrests dating back to 2014 and was charged with assault and harassment in the beating of another man last year in Harlem, allegedly punching him “about the face with a closed fist multiple times,” court documents read. The repeat offender also “used his feet to kick and stomp” the man in the Aug. 3, 2020 assault.

Newly-fashioned state laws, however, dictated that Johnson be released without bail because he didn’t kill his victims. Prior to the changes, judges had the latitude to set bail at their discretion.

Although that particular case is still pending at the time of this writing, Johnson was released back to the streets of the Big Apple, whereupon he proceeded to violently assault a 50-year-old woman at Broadway and West 79th Street in Manhattan Thursday morning. She suffered the aforementioned “disfiguring laceration.”

Only three minutes later, he is reported to have assaulted yet another woman one block away from the site of his first attack. Court documents allege that Johnson walked up to the 32-year-old woman on West 80th Street and simply began punching her in the face repeatedly.

Both women were taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in Manhattan with non-life-threatening injuries.

Prosecutors in the two assault cases requested that Johnson be released without bail and under supervision; a request the judge presiding over the court granted. A representative for the district attorney’s office said that none of the charges warranted keeping Johnson in custody or setting any cash bail for the suspect.

The U.S. is roiling amid crime waves from petty theft to murder, due to the Left’s inhumane and sinister criminal justice policies which offer solace to criminals and instill fear among law-abiding citizens. Organized smash-and-grab robberies are ostensibly the norm, while police stand helpless and business owners lose their livelihoods, all for the sake of furthering a false narrative that whiteness is evil and individuals are not responsible for their decisions and actions.

The most recent, grotesque and deadly manifestation of the Left’s failed policies resulted in the murder of six people, along with the wounding of dozens more when Darrell Brooks allegedly drove his SUV through a Christmas parade procession in Waukesha, Wisconsin on November 21.

Brooks has a rap sheet over 50 pages long and had recently been released on a paltry $1,000 bail after stealing a woman’s cell phone, punching her in the face and running her over with an SUV, the same one used in the parade slaughter.

The Biden regime and its allies in legacy media have done everything they can short of pre-acquitting the killer, undoubtedly due to his political views which he boasted on social media, and which do not jibe with the left’s persistent and fallacious notion that white conservatives are the greatest existential threat in America today.
