The Issue: The Manhattan DA’s omission from court docket paperwork {that a} weapon was used throughout a theft.

We simply noticed the mild with the finish of Bill de Blasio’s tenure, solely to have a Manhattan district lawyer who will enable thugs to rain terror on our residents (“D.A attempts to ‘trim the facts,’ ” Jan. 9).

Changing the information from police statements, leaving out essential particulars on against the law and permitting violent criminals again on the streets is an offense in opposition to hard-working, tax-paying New Yorkers.

What kind of particular person desires this to occur? I query the individuals who elected him and the system that enables this man to be elected to such an essential place.

There has to be a manner to get this harmful particular person out. If not, the metropolis will see companies shut, eating places closed and its inhabitants transferring away.

The Manhattan district lawyer’s workplace omitting the truth {that a} suspect threatened staff with a pair of slicing shears throughout a theft of Chelsea’s T.J. Maxx is a slap in the face to retailer house owners, their staff and all law-abiding residents.

What did newly elected DA Alvin Bragg study at Harvard Law, and the way did he probably cross the New York state bar examination?

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

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

Bragg both has no grasp of the actuality in New York City or is delusional in pondering 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 lawyer who’s working to outline deviancy down.

The new regular might be a relentless improve in defined-down criminality and a ensuing ever-rising stage of violence.

Perhaps it’s best to have modified your front-page headline from “Shear Madness” (Jan. 9) to “Bragging Lies.”

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

It is tough for me to sleep at evening when associates and family members both work in or go to Manhattan. The criminals must be fearful to be in the metropolis, not the law-abiding residents.

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

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

It is 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 paperwork from Bragg’s workplace allegedly didn’t embrace the truth the suspect had a weapon, in accordance to 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 lawyer, Alvin Bragg, introduced his refusal to prosecute sure crimes, ignoring the growing the hazard of dwelling and dealing in New York City.

Well, New York City voters have finished it once more.

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

It’s like Whack-A-Mole in New York City: They do away with one hair-on-fire liberal and elect one other.

I hoped to come again to the metropolis this spring, however not if it’s nonetheless open season in the 5 boroughs.
