Letters to the Editor — Jan. 13, 2022

The Situation: The Manhattan DA’s omission from courtroom paperwork {that a} weapon was used throughout a theft.

We simply noticed the sunshine with the tip of Invoice de Blasio’s tenure, solely to have a Manhattan district legal professional who will permit thugs to rain terror on our residents (“D.A makes an attempt to ‘trim the details,’ ” Jan. 9).

Altering the data from police statements, leaving out vital particulars on a criminal offense and permitting violent criminals again on the streets is an offense in opposition to hard-working, tax-paying New Yorkers.

What sort of particular person needs this to occur? I query the individuals who elected him and the system that permits this man to be elected to such an vital place.

There needs to be a strategy to get this harmful particular person out. If not, town will see companies shut, eating places closed and its inhabitants transferring away.

The Manhattan district legal professional’s workplace omitting the truth that a suspect threatened employees with a pair of chopping shears throughout a theft of Chelsea’s T.J. Maxx is a slap within the face to retailer house owners, their employees and all law-abiding residents.

What did newly elected DA Alvin Bragg be taught at Harvard Legislation, and the way did he presumably cross the New York state bar examination?

The NYPD’s Sergeant Benevolent Affiliation claimed that the Manhattan District Lawyer’s workplace “deliberately omitted all details” a couple of latest theft.

As a local New Yorker, and as somebody who’s mourning the degradation of our wonderful metropolis as the results of COVID and ineffective authorities, I used to be shocked to listen to that the brand new Manhattan DA has the senseless audacity to downgrade or not prosecute critical crimes.

I take the subway to work. My work is generally in Manhattan, and the ugly facet of crime is in my face on daily basis.

Bragg both has no grasp of the fact in New York Metropolis or is delusional in considering that not prosecuting criminals will make our metropolis safer.

I’m strongly in favor of changing him with somebody who focuses on the welfare of the residents, not criminals.

A very long time in the past, Sen. Pat Moynihan used the time period “defining deviancy down.” Now Manhattan has a district legal professional who’s working to outline deviancy down.

The brand new regular shall be a continuing enhance in defined-down criminality and a ensuing ever-rising degree of violence.

Maybe you must have modified your front-page headline from “Shear Insanity” (Jan. 9) to “Bragging Lies.”

Whoever is accountable for the assistant district legal professional who withheld info relating to the scissors-wielding thief needs to be reprimanded if not fired. If Bragg is liable for the omission, he ought to have the decency to resign.

It’s exhausting for me to sleep at evening when pals and family members both work in or go to Manhattan. The criminals needs to be fearful to be within the metropolis, not the law-abiding residents.

Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg is deciding to not prosecute sure minor and main crimes and to learn the legislation in line with his left-wing ideology.

His job is to implement the legal guidelines and prosecute offenders appropriately.

It’s time to take away this incompetent imbecile earlier than we lose this metropolis to the criminals.

Court documents from Bragg's office allegedly did not include the fact the suspect had a weapon, according to the SBA.
Court docket paperwork from Bragg’s workplace allegedly didn’t embody the actual fact the suspect had a weapon, in line with the SBA.

This life-long Democrat won’t help the celebration’s fall to the left, nor its embrace of releasing repeat offenders again on the road.

It’s stunning that new Democratic district legal professional, Alvin Bragg, introduced his refusal to prosecute sure crimes, ignoring the rising the hazard of dwelling and dealing in New York Metropolis.

Nicely, New York Metropolis voters have achieved it once more.

They switched mayors however nullified the brand new one’s effectiveness with their new Manhattan DA.

It’s like Whack-A-Mole in New York Metropolis: They eliminate one hair-on-fire liberal and elect one other.

I hoped to return again to town this spring, however not if it’s nonetheless open season within the 5 boroughs.
