Mayor Sarno Livid on Another Repeat Violent Gun Offender Put Back on Our Streets with Low Bail – Court System Broken!

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states that he is livid on another repeat violent gun offender, Maurice Bailey, being released on low bail, to be put right back on our streets. He said, “The defendant states that it’s not his gun – ‘who’s is it – the Pope’s?!’ You mark my words and I hope I’m wrong, but he’ll reoffend and someone will get hurt and/or killed. The court system ‘is tying one hand behind our backs’ on Commissioner Barbieri’s, our brave and dedicated men and women in blue, and my continued war on crime, which by the way, has resulted in a nearly 20% decrease in overall crime in Springfield. More than ever, we need our state legislators to move on my proposed bail legislation ASAP.”
