Never mind 4 for $48….how about 20 (years) gets you two!
NYC: We will let you out on free bail but you have to show up to your court date. As an incentive, we will give you free Mets tickets.
Cons: I’m good. Go ahead and just lock me back up. Thx. https://t.co/dHnQd8PLVx

That is one quality joke for the #SNY1130 monologue (think the Daily Show except its just Mets content….SNY will never make this but it would be awesome. And then we would have a good use for Gelbs as the “middle segment” guy and could get him the hell off the games.)
Cash bail will be eliminated Jan. 1 for hundreds of offenses, and some defendants could be let out earlier and given rewards to get them to show up to court, CBS2’s Lisa Rozner reported Monday.
A law enforcement source told CBS2 a city program will offer those released incentives meant to encourage them to show up in court such as Mets baseball tickets, a subway pass or a Dunkin’ Donuts gift card. (Via CBS Local)
Like what is happening? So I get out of Rikers and I have to show up at my court date. To encourage me to come, NYC will give me Mets Tickets – probably not Opening Day or the Yankees games, but likely some Monday to Thursday game in April.
Is this really a decision maker for anyone?
