In a rush to grandstand, four Queens lawmakers vowed to donate thousands in police-union and law-enforcement campaign donations to bail out protesters arrested demonstrating against the death of George Floyd. Huh? Peaceful protesters plainly have no need to post bail.

Assembly Members Aravella Simotas and Catalina Cruz, state Sen. Michael Gianaris and City Councilman Francisco Moya, all Queens Democrats, each re-gifted some donations to groups collecting money to bail out protesters. (Bronx Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez pledged $500 to a Bronx bail fund.)

All this adds up to an unspoken claim that New York’s bail laws are still too harsh. Hah!

In reality, even looters don’t have to post bail to escape jail (unless they face other charges for more violent crimes).

Per the state Office of Court Administration, judges’ only options on charges of felony burglary (e.g., looting) are to release the accused on their own recognizance (ROR, in court-speak) or with supervised release. So peaceful protesters are an easy ROR.

We certainly hope none of these donations go to making bail for the two attorneys, one a Harvard Law grad, arrested for throwing Molotov cocktails at Brooklyn cops.

Then, too, Gianaris & Co. have yet to tweet about donating to a fund to help businesses savaged by the disorders, nor spoken out or tweeted against the wanton vandalism and destruction of businesses across the city employing and servicing their constituents.

Such is progressive pandering today.
