Leftist Manhattan DA releasing criminals to the streets

Manhattan’s new district attorney is already reportedly releasing criminals as he implements controversial new policies that will only reduce sentences on a slew of crimes.

District Attorney Alvin Bragg reportedly downgraded the robbery charges against a man who used a knife to rob a store of more than $2,000 in a change that has led to his release.

“Bragg’s policies are an affront to every law-abiding citizen in New York City,” former Manhattan assistant district attorney Daniel Ollen, who’s now a defense lawyer, said, according to the New York Post.

“Violent criminals now have carte blanche to re-offend, knowing full well that they will never again sniff the inside of a jail cell.

“If you thought things couldn’t get any worse, think again. God help us,” Ollen said.

The concerning moves are causing pushback from lawyers, law enforcement, and New Yorkers concerned about the impact Bragg’s moves on crime will have in the city.
