This is wonderful. “Newly minted Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg issued marching orders to his hundreds of assistants and support staff. Bragg says his office “will not seek a carceral sentence” for anything short of murder or deadly assault (“carceral” being progressive double-speak for prison). Also, he says minor crime won’t be prosecuted at all.”
Bragg is another of George Soros’s success stories after he donated a million dollars for Bragg’s campaign.
So now I can start my new career as jewel thief. All I need to do is head down to the Diamond Row in Manhattan, hit all of the larger shops for a few million dollars worth of diamonds, find a fence to take them off my hands, rinse and repeat for a few weeks, then retire (far away from dangerous New York) and live the life of George Soros. Or if I prefer burglary I can just break into apartments on the Upper East or West Sides of Manhattan, the places where people vote for progressives, and simply take all their stuff while they’re not at home. Or I can steal luxury cars and sell them to chop shops. That should be very lucrative. I wonder if I can find DA Bragg’s BMW the first week just to show my gratitude?
This is very good news. Mayor Eric Adams is going to find it pretty difficult to rein in crime if all the criminals he allows the police to arrest are simply released by Bragg. But this should accelerate New York’s slide into cannibalism very nicely.
Thank you DA Bragg.
