“Racial disparity” is the magic word for ensuring black individuals – who collectively commit the majority of crime in New York City – are now protected by the brand new black Manhattan District Attorney. [Manhattan DA to stop seeking prison sentences in slew of criminal cases, New York Post, January 4, 2022]:

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. 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. “This rule may be excepted only in extraordinary circumstances.”

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.” In cases where prosecutors do seek to put a convict behind bars, the request can be for no more than 20 years. (No prison for life.) 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. Seriously injured.

“ADAs should use their judgment and experience to evaluate the person arrested, and identify people: who suffer from mental illness; who are unhoused; who commit crimes of poverty; or who suffer from substance use disorders. Charges should be brought consistent with the goal of providing services to such individuals.”

Mayor Eric Adams is a a former NYPD captain who was elected on a law-and-order platform. “I have a lot of respect for DA Bragg, a former prosecutor. He has a real vision.” Adams appeared alongside Bragg at the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network headquarters in Harlem after both men won their Democratic Party primary races.

At the time, Adams said Bragg’s views on addressing crime were “no different than mine,” adding: “Alvin Bragg is going to redefine the prosecutor’s office and how we are going to ensure that we don’t criminalize young people every day in this city.” Not criminalize young people; just terrorize citizens and make them move out.

Armed robberies are now a viewed as petty larceny, a misdemeanor, according the new black DA of Manhattan and his first official memo upon taking office. No prison for life either, as prosecutors can only seek 20 years for those accused of a crime.

Just go ahead, guys: make it illegal to arrest black people in New York City.

    You know, Manhattan and Long Island (sorry Derb) may be good spots to start depositing joggers – give them their own little fiefdoms to run. The bridges can be blown and perimeters established to keep them there. Any swimmers (Hah!) that happen to make dry land will be dealt with. They can then deal with their own disfunction as they will. If the lawn jockey Bragg want to treat armed robbery as a misdemeanor, have at it, boy. I’d watch your big black booty though. In addition, it’d be prime entertainment for the rest of the county.

    off topic

    Nearly six months ago, celebrated Black children’s author and illustrator Jerry Craft received a message saying some of his books were being pulled from a school library in Texas.

    “I was caught off guard,” Craft, the Newbery Medal-winning author of the 2019 graphic novel “New Kid,” told NBCBLK. “I felt bad for the kids because I know how much they love ‘New Kid’ and ‘Class Act.’ I know what my school visits do. … I felt bad if there was going to be some kids that would not be able to take advantage of that.”

    The person who sent the message to Craft is from Katy, Texas, a town near Houston that has been under fire for attempts to limit the public’s access to books that teach about racism.

    In October, the Katy Independent School District made headlines for temporarily yanking two of Craft’s books, which tell the stories of Black boys who experience racism in schools, from school libraries and postponing his virtual visit. A now-deleted petition with more than 400 signatures showed parents calling for Craft’s visit to be canceled.

  12. @magilla

    Took the words right out of my mouth. This will only lead to more NIMBY liberals moving to red states and screwing them up with their soft headed voting ways, mudshark daughters and 1/2 breed grandkids who live with progressive boomer grandparents. This is trickle down politics to dilute traditionally red states and turn districts. Unfortunately what’s trickling down is raw sewage.

    OT: if you want 5 minutes or so of educational laughs, watch this video of joggers and loose, aggressive dogs. Mostly pitbulls, but not all are. Watch them literally jump over children to get away; another guy jumps on top of a car to get away from a dog, leaving the little girl who is with him standing in the street. Quite telling, actually. Consider it part of your continuing “Know Your Enemy” training.

  18. Of course, crime will explode in NYC but the number and type of excuses for black criminals and their behaviors will also explode. Additionally, any criticism of the Mayor or the D.A. will (of course) be immediately denounced as racism. We all know where this is going, and it includes the standard screeching for mo’ money fo’ dem programs fo’ de po’ black folks to “make a difference” since “ebberbody suppose to help!”

  19. Mr Booey says:

    “This rule may be excepted only in extraordinary circumstances.”

    I wonder if the extraordinary circumstances will be when the person charged is of the Caucasian persuasion?

  20. KenH says:

    This is not prosecutorial discretion which is done on a case by case basis. This is pure lawlessness by the black D.A. Unless New York statutes allow D.A.’s to unilaterally downgrade crimes they do not have the power to do so in such a sweeping, across the board fashion strictly to benefit black and brown criminals.

    Granting blacks equal rights combined with Jewish power and influence is proving deadly.

    Watch the movie “Escape From New York” with Kurt Russell as “Snake Pliskin” for that exact scenario:

  30. There is not a single galaxy, solar system, planet, continent, country, province, prefecture, state, county, city, town, village, neighborhood, college or high school that was ever improved by an influx of blacks.

    A Fraudsident biden-level military occupation of black areas can’t stop black dysfunction, nor affirmative action nor showering blacks with money we don’t have. This has been proven ad nauseum for 80+ years.

    The best answers to keeping this menace at bay are segregation, severe legal punishment the first time, free birth control, abortion and voluntary sterilization and paying black women–on a sliding scale–not to have keeds until age 27 or higher.

    The only viable options at the moment are carrying a firearm (no bueno in blue-occupied states), disseminations of warnings via massive ad campaigns for Whites to be wary of blacks at all times, in every situation, backed up by normally buried interracial crime statistics, the documented decline of property values as blacks move in, the hazards blacks pose to businesses and the deadly folly of non-black women getting involved with orcs.

    Another First Amendment tactic is tying Democrats to every civic failure due to black politicos, spokesblacks, police chiefs, judges and other diversity hires. Unless very young, criminal orcs usually have long rap sheets before their newsmaking first murder.
    Democrats are usually the ones backing 35-more-chances legal shenanigans. Call them out!!–every single time. Failed government programs and the astronomical costs of the African portion of the welfare state should also be highlighted.

    If we just do what we’ve always done we’ll get what we’ve always got.

    I watched the Liberal movie on Netflix called “Don’t Look Up”. The plot was interesting, but of course ruined by the over the top left leanings of the director. Anyways, I kept thinking of us as the scientists in the movie screaming to look at what’s happening. I’ve seen the look on “good Whites” faces a couple times, when they finally realize the that we’re not all the same and negroes pose a great threat… priceless. Unfortunately by the time most realize this, it’ll be too late.

  33. La Griffe du Lion showed long ago that raising the incarceration threshold
    (= the severity of crime necessary for enjoying federal hospitality) increases
    the incarceration ratio (= the relative probability a given white or Black! is
    presently enjoying said hospitality) because the more hideous the crime the
    higher the Black! overrepresentation among perps.
    The ratio is lowest in the most backwoods hanging-judge districts (where you land
    in the hole for spitting on the sidewalk) but nowhere below 5-6, while in
    liberal cities it routinely tops 30.
    This puts libruls in a bind …
    B. Hussein, when he still was in Chicongo, introduced a requirement that
    the inmateship has to look like the populace-at-large i.e. quota –
    and that was before “equity” was a thing.

    – With the situation on track to eclipsing the Crack Wars it won´t be long
    til they scream for resuscitating Giuliani (only until the Black! female electorate
    is fed up enough). But as it is with the incoming tide, each successive wave
    breaks a little higher …

    This outing will end in failure and excuses, none of the excuses will be how woefully unprepared they were for the actual conditions and climbing of Everest. A friend of a friend was a professional mountaineer who spent years prepping to climb Everest. Prepping by traveling and climbing comparable mountains like Mt McKinley, installing a hyperbolic chamber in his house, and fully dedicating his life to it. He didn’t just walk into Paragon and buy a bunch of North Face gear.

    I can see this all black expedition as a form of looks at muh, exploiting being “da first black group” to climb a mountain thousands of others have already done, including a blind man, and using it as a GoFundMe/corporate sponsorship money grab. They’ll cry racism when the other people at base camp complain about their shuckin’ & jivin’, or the sherpas were racist because they’ve never dealt with blacks before. I could write the Mad Lib, blame YT story about it now and save them all the trip, just give me 20% of the GoFundMe money.

    I come from a fairly large family on both sides and luckily, even though I have a good amount of woke, bleeding heart libs in the family (on my mom’s side), none of my cousins are so progressive that they’ve brought home a Trayvon for Christmas, or pumped out a couple half breeds.

    That movie has come up as a suggestion on Neflix, but I won’t watch it, due to knowing the actors in it are playing those roles ironically and it’s meant to be condescending. I have been enjoying the Cobra Kai series on Netflix, even though it’s a bit more woke this new season. The shows Eastbound & Down, and Vice Principals are also very unwoke/non-PC for having been made so recently, and very funny.

    NYC Vax Gestapo Kick Little Boy and Family Out of Restaurant

    A video shows New York City police kicking a family out of a restaurant because their little boy, about six years old, was not vaccinated.

    An entire squad of police appear in the video, demanding the family leave as the little boy covers his face with his hands, and seems to wipe away tears.

    The police then announce to all the patrons of the restaurant that they have a choice: show their vaccine papers to the gestapo, or leave voluntarily. Otherwise they will be arrested for trespassing.

    In the video, one bystander can be heard asking police, “Is this what you signed up for… Is this what you dreamed of when you wanted to be a cop?”

    A valid question.

Once crime is allowed to rule the day, the city is finished. When people can’t adhere to the rules simply get rid of the rules. What could go wrong? (Everything)

    Band of Brothers, about an infantry company in the 101st Airborne Division during the Second World War, is very white. In those days the military was segregated, so the 101st and all of the others Airborne divisions (11th, 13th, 17th and 82d), as well as separate regiments and battalions, were white. The only exception was the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion, an understrength black unit that never deployed overseas. In 1948 it was merged into the 82d as the 3d Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Two decades later the division was so full of orcs that its distinctive AA patch (meaning All American, a nickname it received during World War I when it was a mobilized Reserve infantry division) was then jokingly referred to as the All Afro. One battalion was so overwhelmingly orc that it was called the Nairobi Rifles, as if was a British colonial unit made up of the natives.
