Thug with over 40 arrests on his criminal record has been walking the streets long enough to beat up New York transit workers — and officials are fed up: ‘New bail bond reform needs changing’

Alexander Wright has over 40 arrests on his record. But the length of his criminal record and the heinous nature of his violent crimes apparently weren’t enough to keep him locked up and unable to hurt more people.

For example, Wright was charged with a crime hate crime last year for hitting a 55-year-old Asian woman in Chinatown, New York City, knocking her unconscious:

But somehow, in August, Wright was walking loose when he allegedly beat up a Bronx subway cleaner who was trying to help drivers harassed by Wright. The victim, Anthony Nelson, suffered a dislocated nose and a broken collarbone. Fox News said.

Wright, 49, was charged with assault on September 22 and was scheduled to stay Rikers Island on $5,000 bail.

“That has to stop”

A New York City Transportation Union official appeared on Fox & Friends First Monday to express his displeasure with New York’s controversial bail reform law, which many say makes it easier for dangerous criminals like Wright to stay out of jail and to claim more victims.

“This has to stop again. The new bail reform needs to be changed,” Robert Kelley, vice president of the transport union, told the program’s host, Todd Piro. “Again and again this guy shouldn’t have had the privilege of even being under the new bail bond reform when it comes to him being free. After 40 hits you would think they would lock him up and throw away the key.”

Kelley added that Nelson also suffered emotional consequences from the attack and that the victim’s mother “cries every day; I talk to her weekly.”

He also said Nelson was “clearly a hero” for trying to help subway riders, but that Wright was free to roam was “very disheartening.”

“I never thought I would say this, but at the end of the day, the MTA employees have a more dangerous job than the NYPD,” Kelley added to Fox News. “At least [the NYPD officers] have guns to protect themselves…our members don’t.”

One more thing?

A month after his alleged crackdown on hate crimes, Wright allegedly threw boiling coffee at two Manhattan traffic agents who The New York Post reports.

Police said Wright lived in a homeless shelter and was the subject of three previous reports of “emotionally disturbed individuals,” the Post said.

He is due to appear in court on November 3 in the Nelson assault, the newspaper said.
