Lie: @NYpost attacking release of 900 “jailbirds” & decrying $12 million spent for supervised release instead of jail.

Truth: It would cost *$273 million/yr* to jail those same 900 people on Rikers, presumed innocent, on bail they can’t afford, w/ no benefit to public safety.
HELP ME CALL THEM OUT: This is how mass incarceration perpetuates. Fearmongering @nypost spreads hateful lies about 900 “jailbirds” & $12 million spent for supervised release instead of jail. Truth: Would cost *$273 million/yr* to jail 900 on Rikers w/ no benefit to public safety
More truth: People overwhelmingly come to court with no supervision. Supervised release-when requested-only further ensures return to court. The alternative: The violence of jail or costly, traumatic & unnecessary arrests on warrants for inadvertently missing a single court date.
