Hundreds of people in New York City arrested as part of a looting spree that’s taken place in the aftermath of George Floyd, are being immediately released because of the state’s no cash bail laws.

On Monday night, over 650 people were arrested, and “just about all of them” had been released, NYPD Chief of Department Terrence Monahan said Tuesday.

“You have some arrested in Brooklyn where they had guns. Hopefully, Eric Gonzalez will keep them in. I can’t guarantee that’ll happen,” Monahan explained.

“But, when it comes to a burglary, which is a commercial store, which is looting, they’re back out because of bail reform, you’re back out on the street the next day, cannot be held on any sort of bail.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo relaxed the state’s no cash bail laws earlier this year by adding a number of crimes that would qualify for release without bail. Some of those crimes include stalking, grand larceny, assault as a hate crime, and second-degree manslaughter.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
