One of the jailbirds sprung by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights group is a violent recidivist who recently landed behind bars for robbing a Chelsea sex shop at knifepoint — just months after being released from prison for assault, according to law-enforcement sources and records.
And nobody is more scared about ex-con Ralphie Myree being back out on the streets than Randy Zoysa.
“She will do it again. She is not a good person,” said Zoysa, 29, who manages the Harmony store on Eighth Avenue near West 18th Street, where Myree allegedly waved a blade at employees and stole three Andrew Christian tank tops on June 13.
“I’m scared she might come back because she is crazy,” he told The Post on Tuesday — the day after the foundation posted Myree’s bail as part of its vow to indiscriminately free hundreds of women and 16- and 17-year-olds from Rikers Island in a humanitarian effort.
The RFK group plunked down $10,000 to spring Myree, 25, in its first round of freeing defendants regardless of the charges against them.
Foundation spokesman Max Burns has defended the group’s plan by claiming that “95 percent of people bailed out by existing bail funds return to court.”
Myree has failed to show up for court hearings four times in the past, prosecutors said at her arraignment in the sex-shop case.
They also noted at the time that Myree had five open cases in Manhattan and The Bronx — as well as seven previous convictions, including a 2013 assault that landed her in prison for 2½ years. She was paroled in the assault case in 2015.
She was arrested twice in 2016. Both those cases are sealed.
She landed back in the clink in August 2017 for “violating the conditions of her parole,” according to state prison officials.
She was paroled again on Sept. 8, 2017, and just over a month later — while still on parole — she was pinched by Midtown South cops for allegedly swiping clothes from an Old Navy store.
Her parole ended fewer than two weeks later, on Oct. 30, 2017.
Everyone from the mayor to the police commissioner and all five district attorneys say the foundation’s plan is dangerous.
Myree is represented by Legal Aid, which did not respond to a request for comment.
And the RFK foundation did not respond to multiple requests for comment Tuesday.
