And I think that NY voters totally misunderstood the position of the people that they elected. This is proudly displayed on Cyrus Vance's webpage:

Since 2010, we have reduced unnecessary incarceration and ended the criminal prosecution of thousands of low-level, nonviolent offenses annually, slashing the number of people entering the criminal justice system in Manhattan nearly in half. Some of our signature reforms include:

Ending requests for bail in most misdemeanor cases
Ending the prosecution of marijuana smoking and possession cases, and dismissing more than 3,000 marijuana cases
Proactively sealing marijuana possession convictions for hundreds of New Yorkers through an innovative class action petition brought jointly with public defenders and advocates
Ending the criminal prosecution of crimes of poverty including turnstile-jumping, unlicensed vending, and nonpayment of fines, except where there is a demonstrated public safety reason to do so
Ending the prosecution of unlawful assembly and disorderly conduct
Ending the prosecution of prostitution and unlicensed massage and ‘Loitering for Prostitution’ cases, and
Dismissing 914 Prostitution and Unlicensed Massage cases and more than 5,000 Loitering for the Purpose of Prostitution cases.
Dismissing more than 240,000 old summons warrants originally issued for minor, nonviolent offenses, which subjected New Yorkers to unnecessary arrest, housing, and immigration consequences
Ending the prosecution of most low-level, nonviolent violations and infractions through programs like our Manhattan Summons Initiative
Creating and funding pre-arraignment diversion programs to enable thousands of first-time arrestees charged with non-violent misdemeanors to avoid prosecution and an arrest record, while being held accountable in a community setting
Launching the Manhattan Hope Program, allowing individuals arrested for low-level drug offenses to complete a treatment program instead of entering criminal court, and
Supporting the closure of Rikers Island and laying the groundwork for it by contributing $14 million (of $17 million total) in funding for the citywide Supervised Release program
