Andrew Yang Urges More Pre Trial Release Amid COVID As Inner City Press Asks UN

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 22 – NYC Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang is suggesting cold storage of COVID-19 vaccine in under-used refrigerators in bars and restaurants, and even ice cream trucks.   

Yang held a press conference on January 22, along with Bronx Rep. Ritchie Torres and Queens Assemblymember Ron Kim and others.   Inner City Press asked Yang how his wider COVID-19 plan would apply to courts and prisons.

Yang acknowledged the problem(s), and urge increased pre-trial detention. Video here, from Minute 36:23.  

Ron Kim spoke moving about his elderly father who had a kidney removed for cancer still not being able to get on any list for the COVID vaccine.

 This while, for example, UN Secretary General is bragging about being poised to get his vaccination all the while saying he is not getting special treatment.  

 Inner City Press has asked, but has gotten no response from UN spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming. See Inner City Press Periscope video here, and watch this site.
