NYC Spent $500,000 per inmate in 2020, report says

March 21, 2021

The borders are open, businesses remain closed and money is being printed to the point of guaranteed bankruptcy for the US Dollar. Violence plagues the country, people can't earn a living and after Congress stalled for months, they gave some of us $1400 bucks while saddling every American with $12,538 more debt. They literally have stolen 91% of the $1.9 TRILLION dollar "relief" bill that our grandkids won't ever pay back.

Forgive the obvious contempt in my words. When I see an article like this, especially from a left-wing shop like Bloomberg, I get pissed. While I give high marks to Bloomberg News for publishing a real, investigative story, it magnifies just how inept and corrupt the rest of the mainstream media is. This is the type of thought-provoking story that generates dialogue and ultimately change. Yet, our communist mockingbird media won't touch it. They're too busy pushing vaccine and mask propaganda for the common cold. Anything to divert our attention from the real truth.

The New York City Department of Corrections spent $447,337 per inmate in fiscal 2020, 30% more than a year ago.

The New York City Department of Corrections spent $447,337 per inmate in fiscal 2020, a third more than a year ago and more than double the fiscal 2015 mark, according to a report released Wednesday by New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer.

The city is spending more on inmates despite a drop in the number of incarcerations during the pandemic, the report said. Stay-at-home orders led to fewer arrests and prisoners were released to reduce the spread of Covid-19, leading to a drop in city inmates.

Stringer, who is running to replace Mayor Bill de Blasio as mayor later this year, said the city’s correction’s department is posing budgetary concerns and producing meager results. In the comptroller’s report, which is part of an annual watch list of poorly-performing city agencies, Stringer called out a 27% rise in violent incidents in jails from a year ago, as well as mounting safety concerns despite spending increases.
