Because, of course, it does.

From the New York Post:

Bronx judge orders accused Jewish center vandal to be cut loose

A Bronx judge on Sunday night ordered the alleged Riverdale synagogue vandal cut loose on supervised release — reversing an earlier decision by a separate jurist to hold the suspect on $20,000 bail.

The suspect, 29-year-old Jordan Burnette, was granted supervised release by Judge Tara Collins in Bronx Criminal Court — hours after he was ordered held on bail on 42 charges stemming from his alleged 11-day crime spree, said Patrice O’Shaughnessy, a spokeswoman for the Bronx District Attorney’s Office.

Under New York state law, a suspect hit with Burnette’s charges cannot be held on bail.

He committed 42 acts of anti-Semitic vandalism, including smashing the windows of Synagogues and defacing prayer books, over 11 straight days, but according to an NYC Judge and NYC law, that’s not enough to hold him with bail.

Too bad this guy wasn’t a white supremacist, they would have thrown the book at him.
