Glenn Hirsch, the unhinged man charged with the cold-blooded murder of Middle Village resident and food delivery worker Zhiwen Yan, was released on bail. That is because New York, unlike the 49 other states, doesn’t have a dangerousness standard for judges to use when determining if a defendant should be remanded. You know who could change that? Our “outraged” elected officials. Hirsch later killed himself while out on bail, which at least saves his victim’s family the torture of a trial.
