Man Who Attacked NY Republican Lee Zeldin Released Within Hours Of Arrest

After Republican Lee Zeldin was attacked by a man with a sharp weapon this week, his attacker was arrested and then immediately released.

This is insane. What if this had happened to Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton? Would the attacker be released?

New York’s bail reform laws are putting people’s lives in danger.

FOX News reported:

“His words as he tried to stab me a few hours ago were ‘you’re done’, but several attendees, including @EspositoforNY, quickly jumped into action & tackled the guy,” he tweeted early Friday. “Law enforcement was on the scene within minutes. The attacker will likely be instantly released under NY’s laws.”

The laws need to be changed. Leadership needs to be changed.

None of this makes sense.
