New data from the New York Times unveiled that a large share of shoplifting crimes in New York City are committed by the same people.
Roughly one-third of the city’s shoplifting crimes were committed by the same 347 people, according to the New York Times’ data. These 327 people accounted for over 6,000 arrests and rearrests.
The city continues to abide by its lax bail laws, which makes it nearly impossible to stop crime. If you want to solve rising crime in New York City, it’s time to incarcerate these 327 people.
