It’s “insanity” that a Queens man has been arrested 46 times so far this year — only to be repeatedly released to steal again, said NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea in response to an article in The Post.
Isaac Rodriguez, 22, has been collared by cops 74 times since 2015, and 57 times this year alone, The Post exclusively reported Saturday.
Rodriguez allegedly ripped off the same Queens Walgreens more than three dozen times in 2021, and has also been charged with gang assault in connection with a vicious stabbing, but was sent back to the streets under the state’s bail reform measure.
Police Commissioner Dermot Shea, who has blamed the policy for an increase in shootings in the boroughs, took to Twitter Saturday to weigh in on The Post’s expose.
“Insanity. No other way to describe the resulting crime that has flowed from disastrous bail reform law,” the commissioner tweeted, adding #victims and a link to the article.
Issac Rodriguez has been arrested by the NYPD 57 times in the year 2021 and released every time due to the new bail laws.
“For the most part the top charge in his [Rodriguez] cases are not bail-eligible offenses,” according to a spokeswoman for the Queens’ District Attorney’s office.
In June, Rodriguez and others were arrested for kicking, beating, robbing and stabbing Pablo Cusco, 39, who was walking his dog in Jackson Heights.
