Washington Examiner

he new district attorney of Manhattan is under fire for ordering prosecutors to stop pursuing prison time for a significant number of criminal cases.

Alvin Bragg's office will "not seek a carceral sentence" except in cases of homicide, domestic violence felonies, corruption, and some sex crimes, according to a Monday memo Bragg sent to staff.


"This rule may be excepted only in extraordinary circumstances based on a holistic analysis of the facts, criminal history, victim's input (particularly in cases of violence or trauma), and any other information available," the memo read.

The "impacts of incarceration" must be considered by prosecutors, Bragg, a Democrat, instructed.

These effects include barriers to employment and housing, cost and race disparities, and an impact on public safety, he said.

"Data, and my personal experiences, show that reserving incarceration for matters involving significant harm will make us safer," according to the memo.:snip:

How Far Will the Left Go to Keep Criminals Out of Jail?

Jill Haliburton Su, a wealthy, white woman who spent her spare time reading to the blind and doing charity work, was found tied up and stabbed to death in her home in 2014. Dayonte Resiles stood trial in December of 2021. His DNA was found on the knife used to kill her and elsewhere in Su’s home. Three members of his jury refused to convict him because they didn’t “want to send a young black male to jail for the rest of their life or have him get the death sentence.” Resiles’ retrial began Monday.


Let’s face it, the left doesn’t care about the violent murder of a rich, white woman. But more than that, the truth is that liberals hate to see a criminal go to jail. Even if that criminal has hurt a fellow leftist.

In 2019, a gay man walking in New York City’s Morningside Park was pummeled to the point that he received a traumatic brain injury. It was yet another in a string of violent beatings. The victim’s friends and local residents useful idiots decided to hold a protest against the violence by marching with signs that read: “Stop violence w/Restorative Justice” and “Community Solutions, Not Retribution.” They already knew who was behind the savage attacks. Even as their friend was struggling to get his memory back, they didn’t want the teen attackers punished.

Why wouldn’t they want the violent miscreants in jail? Aw, you know.

The left is doing everything it can to keep violent offenders out of prison. Even at their own peril, and the peril of innocent minorities.:snip:
