    So now only fools will bother with being "law-abiding" in NYC, what POSSIBLE benefit is left by being so? This looks to be shaping up as quite an "entertaining year"... stock up on ammo and canned goods with long expiration dates, may not be the midterms that turn this buggy around.

    Something is very dangerous and concerning to ordinary working folks when Al Sharpton is the center of attraction:

    The Bragg policy of charging armed robbery (a felony) as Petit Larceny (a misdemeanor) is defeating New York's penial code. As stated in the memo, the felony act of Robbery in the first degree (PL §§ 160.15 (2, 3, or 4), is to be charged “under PL § 155.25 [Petit Larceny] if the force or threat of force consists of displaying a dangerous instrument or similar behavior but does not create a genuine risk of physical harm.”

    Here is the full quote from the memo:

    "a) An act that could be charged under PL §§ 160.15 (2, 3, or 4), 160.10(2b), or 160.05 that occurs in a commercial setting should be charged under PL § 155.25 if the force or threat of force consists of displaying a dangerous instrument or similar behavior but does not create a genuine risk of physical harm."


    So, instead of following NY's penial code, designed to protect hard working citizens and their families from armed robbery thugs, Alvin Bragg will now charge an armed robber with petit larceny under which the perp will be issued a Desk Appearance Ticket and be back on the streets in a few hours to commit the same offense against the hard-working citizens of NYC and their families.

    Is this what the Citizens of NYC wanted when they voted for Alvin Bragg?

    Unfortunately DA's have absolute discretion in who they will or won't charge. All we can do if we don't like the job they are going is vote them out.

    Recalling officials in New York City

    See Laws governing recall in New York - Ballotpedia

    Recall of elected officials is not permitted in New York.
    While recall elections do not occur, the New York Constitution states, "Any town, village, improvement district or fire district officer, except a justice of the peace, may be removed from office by the supreme court for any misconduct, maladministration, malfeasance or malversation in office." Any citizen within the officeholder's district may submit an application for removal to the local branch of the appellate division of the supreme court.[1]

    He's legally exercising his discretion, there's no chance at all he would be removed by the State Supreme Court for doing so.

    Is he really exercising discretion? Did he not take an oath requiring him to abide by the rule of law? Is armed robbery not a felony under New York's Penial Code?

    John, don't shoot the messenger. Prosecutors have absolute discretion in what cases they will or won't prosecute and in making deals to reduce charges.

    I fully understand that "discretion" thing. However, as used by Bragg in such a sweeping fashion which drops felony crimes to misdemeanors and puts these perps back on the streets, malfeasance, misfeasance and nonfeasance comes into mind in relations to his oath!

    The trouble is, you'll never get a court to declare he's violating his oath by exercising within the law the powers of his office.

    Felonies are reduced to misdemeanors every day all across the country for all sorts of reasons.
