(BLP) – Over the weekend, this video of a NYC man wielding an ax and threatening innocent civilians all because he was rejected by a female went viral:

The tweet has over 25 million views at the time of this writing, and it quickly became a trending story because it perfectly highlights just how out-of-control and crime infested New York has become.

Twitter had thoughts, with users commenting on just how backwards the culture has gotten thanks to pro-crime politicians and upside down victimhood logic.

To make the whole matter even crazier, the mad man was released without bail. Meaning he is already back on the street according to authorities said Sunday.

Per the New York Post:

An accused jilted madman who flew into an ax-wielding rage at a Lower East Side McDonald’s was released without bail at his arraignment, authorities said Sunday.

Michael Palacios, 31, who allegedly grabbed an ax and trashed the Delancey Street fast-food joint in a fit early Friday, was arraigned on fourth-degree criminal-mischief and possession-of-weapons charges hours later and freed, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said.

Neither charge is eligible for bail under the state’s lenient criminal-justice reforms.

Thanks to the criminal justice reform movement, ax-wielding maniacs are somehow someway treated like victims. All under the guise of “compassion.”

Now, this undeniably guilty man who was recorded smashing up a McDonald’s in the Lower East is free to wreak havoc once again. There are no consequences for his intimidation or destruction of property.

New York Post sources say the madman has one prior bust, for resisting arrest.

“Michael Palacios, 31, arraigned on fourth-degree criminal-mischief and possession-of-weapons charges and released on his own recognizance hours after LES McDonald’s rampage,” wrote a user on Twitter.

“Towering over a woman and threatening her with a hatchet is OK with everyone now,” they added. “This is perfectly normal behavior now.”

“If you harass a woman and she rejects your advances, you just start going around and tearing the place up with a hatchet.”

“You, Mr. and Mrs. New York City, approve of this,” they concluded.
