Every state south of Virginia needs to put signs on the highway that read “No Vacancy for Woke New Yorkers.”

Manhattan DA to stop seeking prison sentences in slew of criminal cases

Manhattan’s new DA has ordered his prosecutors to stop seeking prison sentences for hordes of criminals and to downgrade felony charges in cases including armed robberies and drug dealing, according to a set of progressive policies made public Tuesday.

In his first memo to staff on Monday, Alvin Bragg said his office “will not seek a carceral sentence” except with homicides and a handful of other cases, including domestic violence felonies, some sex crimes and public corruption.

Assistant district attorneys must also now keep in mind the “impacts of incarceration,” including whether it really does increase public safety, potential future barriers to convicts involving housing and employment, the financial cost of prison and the racial disparities over who gets time, Bragg instructed.

Bragg’s memo also detailed the following instructions for prosecutors to reduce charges filed by cops in various cases:

Armed robbers who use guns or other deadly weapons to stick up stores and other businesses will be prosecuted only for petty larceny, a misdemeanor, provided no victims were seriously injured and there’s no “genuine risk of physical harm” to anyone. Armed robbery, a class B felony, would typically be punishable by a maximum of 25 years in prison, while petty larceny subjects offenders to up to 364 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Convicted criminals caught with weapons other than guns will have those felony charges downgraded to misdemeanors unless they’re also charged with more serious offenses. Criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, a class D felony, is punishable by up to 7 years behind bars.

Burglars who steal from residential storage areas, parts of homes that aren’t “accessible to a living area” and businesses located in mixed-use buildings will be prosecuted for a low-level class D felony that only covers break-ins instead of for more serious crimes. Those more serious crimes, class B and class C felonies, would be punishable by up to 25 and up to 15 years in prison respectively.
Drug dealers believed to be “acting as a low-level agent of a seller” will be prosecuted only for misdemeanor possession. Also, suspected dealers will only be prosecuted on felony charges if they’re also accused of more serious crimes or are actually caught in the act of selling drugs. That felony would mean facing up to seven years behind bars.

So the Manhattan DA essentially legalized violent crime.

The results will be obvious.

I can only legitimate believe this is purposeful and malicious, although I don’t understand why.

What I do understand is that the people in Manhattan who can afford to leave will.

What they will not do is learn from this and will bring their voting habits to Southern states.

I don’t care what happens to people in New York City.

I only care that it be contained there and not allowed to escape.

  1. “Armed robbers who use guns or other deadly weapons to stick up stores and other businesses will be prosecuted only for petty larceny, a misdemeanor, provided no victims were seriously injured and there’s no “genuine risk of physical harm” to anyone.”

    Keep in mind that New Yawk is an enlightened state with proper gun control! So they shouldn’t even have guns to start with! /sarc

    Snake Plisskin, call your office.

  2. “provided no victims were seriously injured and there’s no “genuine risk of physical harm”

    Define serious…..

  3. A gun pointed at a victim IS in itself a genuine risk of physical harm. But mental defectives (or criminal maniacs) like this DA don’t understand or admit that.
    I guess NYC set out to find someone worse than Chesa Boudin and succeeded.

  4. ‘Public Corruption’. Had to leave that one in so they can keep trying to put Trump and family in jail.

  5. If the last couple years have taught me anything it’s:
    1) Why most disaster/pandemic/zombie movies have military blockades/checkpoints at all the exits to NYC.
    2) We should build an “Escape from NY” wall around NYC and blow the bridges/tunnels before the rest of the cancer metastasizes to America.

    1. Problem is, of course, the circus will in due course show up with those monkeys in your town.

  6. Many of my coworkers live in Seattle. At least two were talking about moving south during our weekly call. Top places were Arizona and Florida. One said anywhere warm but Texas – Bleeck..

    I said fine. We don’t want you and your strange ways down here, and I doubt Floridians do as well. Funny, he was grumbling about Florida as well.

    They aren’t doing us any favors, even though they think so.

    One observation I’ve had about transplants to Texas – one good summer heat snaps their culture shock into overdrive and they leave.

  7. Why do you regressives not embrace to woke solution that is Sharia law? You can even start slow – just the tip, as it were – as referred to in Quran verse 5:38: “As to the thief, male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power.”

    You can even keep it totally secular and not in conflict with the separation of church and state, etc. by deleting the “Allah” references.

    And since we’re defunding the police and don’t want to overload emergency services any more than necessary, it should be at the hands of the intended victim.

    Later, we can expand this to corrupt officials and election thieves and such…

    MACHETES FOR ALL! (Rechargeable electric chainsaws for the disabled, of course.)

  8. I’m puzzled, as usual.

    Armed robbery will be treated as a misdemeanor, possession of a non-gun weapon will also be a misdemeanor, but possession of a weapon is a class D felony?

    So, PotG can or can’t carry their otherwise legally possessed firearm in the Big Rotten Apple?
