ALBANY – NYGOP Chair Ed Cox today released the following statement in response to reports of surging car thefts in Rochester.
“This new crime wave is another consequence of wrong-headed criminal justice policies like Raise the Age, bail and discovery law changes, which have encouraged rampant lawlessness throughout the state.
“Monroe County Democrats and Kathy Hochul sit on their hands and do nothing. In fact, they double down on these failed policies and pretend that all is well. The people of Monroe County and Rochester are left with the consequences: rampant auto theft and blatant disregard for public order and safety.”
