Out on bail? Here’s some Mets tickets via the new 20 for 2 plan!

Never mind 4 for $48….how about 20 (years) gets you two!

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)

Ok what?

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?
