Eight sex offenders, three of which were convicted for raping children, were released in the state of New York as a statewide initiative led by Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) to empty prisons in fear that inmates will contract the Chinese coronavirus.
This weekend, the Monroe County, New York, jail freed more than 50 inmates from their custody as part of the state’s Department of Corrections and Community Services jailbreak effort in the midst of the coronavirus, according to WIVB 4.
The Monroe County Sheriffs’ Office said that more than 50 prisoners have been released from the Monroe County Jail on Saturday. Nine of those inmates are now staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Greece.
Among the inmates known to be staying at the Holiday Inn Express are four registered sex offenders. Three of whom are registered as level 3 sex offenders and are deemed by New York courts as most likely to re-offend. All three of the level 3 sex offenders staying at the Holiday Inn Express have been convicted for the rape of minors.
“It doesn’t make any sense. If you could present an argument to me that makes sense, I’m willing to listen. But this doesn’t make any sense,” Patrick Phelan, the Greece Chief of Police, said.
“So you have a violent criminal who’s done time in state prison who’s been given the chance of parole, and not followed the conditions of their parole. That’s who you’re talking about right now,” Phelan said.

This seems like a really, really stupid time to be releasing these people. Or is it the perfect time.

School is out for the rest of the season. So being in a Holiday Inn next to an empty school is
A lost argument
Why does New York even bother to elect state legislators if they’re willing to blithely hand power to the governor whenever he cites an impending threat? That’s what Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins did this week by needlessly handing Gov. Andrew Cuomo dictatorial powers in the name of fighting the coronavirus. The Legislature voted to give Cuomo an unprecedented right to declare an emergency and then suspend state or local laws as he chooses. Few Democratic legislators even objected to the obscene abdication.
