No Law, No Order

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 6, 2022

    THE NEW MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY, ERIC ADAMS, WAS SUPPOSED TO USHER IN AN ERA OF TOUGH ON

CRIME POLICIES. MAYBE HE WILL, BUT HE WON’T BE GETTING HELP FROM MANHATTAN’S NEW DISTRICT

ATTORNEY, ALVIN BRAGG.

    BRAGG HAS ORDERED PROSECUTORS TO STOP SEEKING PRISON SENTENCES FOR MANY CRIMINALS AND

TO DOWNGRADE FELONY CHARGES IN CASES INCLUDING ARMED ROBBERIES AND DRUG DEALING. BRAGG

SAYS HIS OFFICE “WILL NOT SEEK A (PRISON) SENTENCE” EXCEPT FOR PEOPLE COMMITTING HOMICIDES

AND A HANDFUL OF OTHER CASES, INCLUDING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FELONIES, SOME SEX CRIMES AND

PUBLIC CORRUPTION.

    HAS BRAGG NOT BEEN WATCHING WHAT HIS FELLOW PROGRESSIVE DA’S AND PROSECUTORS HAVE

DONE IN OTHER CITZIES – THE LOOTING, THE RIOTING, AND OTHER BREACHES OF THE PEACE? CRIMINALS

MUST BE LICKING THEIR CHOPS IN MANHATTAN, KNOWING THEY WILL BE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH ALL

SORTS OF LAWLESSNESS AND NEVER BE PROSECUTED.

    ASSISTANT DA’S MUST ALSO CONSIDER THE “IMPACT OF INCARCERATION,” INCLUDING WHETHER IT

INCREASES PUBLIC SAFETY. GIVEN THOSE LET OUT OF JAIL WHO COMMIT NEW CRIMES, JAIL DOES

PROTECT THE PUBLIC.

    THIS IS THE UGLY SIDE OF PROGRRESSIVISM. IT IS WHY LAW AND ORDER IS GOING TO BE A MAJOR

CAMPAIGN ISSUE IN THE NOVEMBER ELECTION. I’M CAL THOMAS.
