Kadeem Johnson, 28, of Newark, was arrested by members of the Fugitive Apprehension Team in connection with a shooting that occurred on May 17 2017. The shooting resulted in a 27-year-old male being shot and treated at University Hospital. Information obtained by police led to the warrant and subsequent arrest of Johnson.
Johnson was later released after his arrest and FREE TO GO thanks to NJ Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined that he was not a danger to the community or a flight risk and therefore should not be subject to any accountable release – just a “promise” to appear.
Another “validated pretrial risk assessment” Failure.

- ZERO Accountability
- ZERO Deterrent
- ZERO Supervision
- ZERO concern for victims
- ZERO Bail…just a “pinky promise” to return
- Bail Reform – Dangerous, Reckless, and a Taxpayer Burden
