Anti-Semitic Hate Crime Suspect Out on Bail in New York

Goshen (N.Y.) Police Department, via Twitter

On July 14, a group of Jewish people gathered at the Chabad of Orange County Center in Goshen, N.Y., to hear a Holocaust survivor speak. They didn’t expect anti-Semitic harassment, but they received it.


Authorities say that 30-year-old Terence Davis allegedly drove by the center twice and shouted epithets at those gathered for the event.

Police charged Davis with “harassment as a hate crime, disruption of a religious service, harassment and two counts of disorderly conduct,” as Mid Hudson News reported.

Here’s the kicker: thanks to New York’s soft-on-crime bail laws, Davis is already out on bail with an order to appear in court on August 3.

What’s more, as News 12 reports, “This was the latest in a string of antisemitic attacks by several people in the Hudson Valley over the last few weeks.”

Incidents like these are on the rise all over New York.

“The number of antisemitic incidents in New York increased by 24 percent last year to the highest level in decades, including a surge in the number of assaults, as well as both criminal and noncriminal incidents targeting Jews,” reported the New York Times in April.

“The last two years have seen a significant proliferation of hate incidents both nationwide and in New York State,” wrote the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in a May report. It’s a serious problem, to be sure, even if the ADL beclowns itself and betrays the seriousness of the issue by trying to tie anti-Semitism to conservatives and Jan. 6, 2021.

Yet Davis is free to roam the streets and harass Jewish people. Ask yourself this: if Davis had harassed attendees at a mosque or a Pride Month event, would he be out on bail?
