Alvin Bragg lets criminals run free and terrorize New York. 


This one headline sums up life in New York under Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg: "Convicted rapist steals NYC straphanger’s cellphone, cut loose without bail"


Bragg has a record of downgrading felony charges and criminals are eager to take advantage of his weakness.


Shoplifting, for example, has increased 64 percent in recent years in New York, more than any other big city.


Here is the New York Post editorial board on Bragg's disgraceful tenure as DA: "Starting with his disgraceful 'Day 1' memo to his office, Bragg has emphasized a 'decarceral' agenda that treats prosecution as a major threat to society.


Along with state criminal-justice 'reforms' pushing the same misbegotten approach, that’s produced a steep rise in shootings and other violent crimes — as well as record shoplifting that’s forced many retailers to close and left the rest locking up most of their shelves, even the toothpaste.


The DA’s lowlights include a sweet-heart plea deal last December for a gangbanger with a history of robbing high-end Madison Avenue boutiques (Bragg said his office had too much on its plate), the aborted murder charge against bodega worker Jose Alba in a clear case of self-defense as well as charging Marine Corps vet Daniel Penny with manslaughter in the death of Jordan Neely, a mentally unhinged vagrant threatening other straphangers."
