The mother of a New York City murder victim on Thursday shared her anger at Democrat Kathy Hochul’s re-election as New York governor.
Madeline Brame’s son, 35-year-old Army veteran Hason Correa, was stabbed to death in Harlem in 2018. Brame, chair of the Victims Rights Reform Council, has since attacked New York’s liberal bail and sentencing policies.
During an appearance on the Fox News show America’s Newsroom, Brame said Hochul’s stance on releasing criminals with no or minimal bail made her feel “disrespected.”
Her reaction to Hochul’s re-election was, “If nothing changes, nothing changes.”
“Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity,” she said.

She said she was not alone and that Hochul had “offended the hundreds and thousands of other mothers and families who are going through the exact same thing as me”.
Brame said the current policy of New York “needs to be completely undone in its entirety and sent through the shredder.”
“If we continue to slap these kids on the wrist and coddle them and not hold them accountable for their actions, they just think it’s okay to do it over and over again,” she said.
“They rack up all these charges, they drop out of school, they get into all kinds of trouble and that just creates a whole new generation of career criminals and mass incarcerations.”

Yes: 100% (143 votes)
No: 0% (0 votes)
Brame said officers “need to start from scratch and come up with more sensible reforms that actually put the safety of the public first, the victims and their families second, and then the well-being of the offender.”
Brame told Fox News earlier this year that liberal criminal justice policies are “a runaway train that’s crashing straight into the black and brown community, leaving a trail of bodies and victims in its wake.”
According to the New York Post, in May she had objected to a plea deal that sentenced Mary Saunders, who was among four people charged in the death of her son, to time served. Saunders was originally charged with murder but pleaded guilty to second-degree assault.
“This is an absolute disgrace, an atrocity, a miscarriage of justice,” Brame said at the time.
Saunders was sentenced to one year in prison and served 14 months.
“A year for murder? This is so disrespectful and dishonoring my son’s military service in this country. It’s so offensive,” Brame said.
Assistant District Attorney Dafna Yoran justified the deal by saying that Saunders only kicked Correa once and tried to hit him, but “did not appear to have done any harm.”
