Mayor Sarno Echoes Coach Belichick Tag Line to our Court System – “Do Your Job!”

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “I guess ‘the third time is a charm’ on the quick arrest of Edwin Hernandez on murder charges in the Liberty and Genesee Street’s shooting of Isaiah Ramos (may God rest his soul). This marks the third arrest of Edwin Hernandez within one year on gun charges – two previous on assault with a dangerous weapon. A young man is dead, families and neighborhoods are adversely affected – what the hell does it take to hold these types of dangerous repeat violent offenders! As New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick states, I echo his tagline to our Court System – ‘Do Your Job!’ Our brave ‘men and women in blue’ keep arresting these repeat violent offenders and some of our Judges and Court System keep letting them out through their revolving door policies. Again, I urge our State Legislature to pass my Bail Legislation and/or Governor Baker’s Dangerousness Legislation ASAP. We need to respect and protect all our law abiding citizens of all backgrounds and stop coddling these repeat violent offenders. Believe it or not, that’s what our citizens want done. Believe you me – Judges wouldn’t stand for this in their neighborhoods, but it’s acceptable in our urban neighborhoods!”
