A politicized justice system is a dangerous thing. And we’ve got one.
College life drags people to the left. That’s nothing new. Professors and activist groups hammer that message all day long for years.
But having political leanings are ONE thing. Hijacking the justice system to selectively exempt your activist buddies from criminal prosecution is quite another.
A lady cop had hearing loss from a ‘peaceful’ protester screaming in her ear with a bullhorn. That hearing loss, fortunately, was temporary.
The DA got PERSONALLY involved in this case — and didn’t give any explanation for the decision.
The Manhattan District Attorney has dropped felony charges against the Black Lives Matter leader who was accused of assaulting a police officer, after an angry crowd chased off an NYPD team sent to arrest the man.
DA Cyrus Vance personally ordered the charges against Derrick Ingram, 28, dropped from felony assault in the second degree to misdemeanor assault, a law enforcement source told the New York Post.
…Ingram, who had faced up to seven years in prison if convicted on the felony charge, now faces as little as no jail time if convicted of the misdemeanor.
The DA’s office gave no explanation for the reduced charge, on which Ingram was released with no bail Saturday night.
NYC Patrolman’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch blasted the decision to drop the felony charge against Ingram, who is the leader of activist group Warriors in the Garden.
‘Is there any doubt who is in charge of this city now? The criminal mob is dictating their terms to the NYPD brass and district attorneys, who are tripping over themselves to comply,’ Lynch said in a statement.
‘Police officers want to know: What are we still doing out here?’ he continued.
‘Why are our leaders sending us out to enforce laws they don’t believe in? And what are we supposed to tell New Yorkers who are watching us retreat while violence overwhelms their streets?’ Lynch added.
Just like that, Ingram went from facing 7 years in prison to walking off scot-free.
What OTHER newsworthy things has this DA, Cyrus Vance been up to?
He declined to prosecute ‘low-level’ offenses by supposedly ‘peaceful’ protesters.
“The D.A.’s Office declines to prosecute these arrests in the interest of justice,” Vance said.
He said the prosecution of such low-level offenses related to the protests “undermines critical bonds between law enforcement and the communities we serve.” — NYPost
This was AFTER the world watched New York’s shopping district burn.
He has no interest in prosecuting ‘petty’ crimes like that but he’s been like a dog on a bone after Trump’s financial details.
President Donald Trump on Thursday filed a lawsuit against Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. and his longtime accounting firm, days after news broke that the prosecutor had subpoenaed years of Trump’s personal and corporate tax returns. —CNBC
For what crime is Trump being investigated? Oh, the DA will figure that out eventually. The investigation is all that REALLY matters. Then he can get all kinds of juicy details to leak as oppo research.
What a gutless wonder. Seems like he’s trying to turn New York into Batman’s Gotham City, complete with the political corruption… but the billionaires there are nothing like Bruce Wayne.
