In the Democrat universe, NOT putting criminals in jail “will make us safer.”
And it’s not their fault that they are criminals. It’s society’s fault.
The new, Democrat district attorney for Manhattan has said as much, directing prosecutors to stop seeking prison time for significant numbers of criminal cases. Alvin Bragg’s office announced in a memo that it will “not seek a carceral sentence” except in cases of homicide, domestic violence felonies, corruption, and some sex crimes, reports the Washington Examiner.
Bragg is one of many aspiring district attorneys whose campaigns were injected with money by Hungarian-born financier George Soros, who uses his immense wealth to sabotage law and order in the United States and simultaneously advance the institutionalized corruption of socialist government.
Bragg’s memo, which went out to staff on Jan. 3, read: “This rule may be excepted only in extraordinary circumstances based on a holistic analysis of the facts, criminal history, victim’s input (particularly in cases of violence or trauma), and any other information available.”
The “impacts of incarceration” must be considered, lectured Bragg, and these include increased difficulty obtaining employment and housing as well as cost and race disparities.
“Data, and my personal experiences, show that reserving incarceration for matters involving significant harm will make us safer,” he wrote in the memo.
When assistant district attorneys do seek prison terms, they may request only a determinate sentence up to 20 years, the memo directed. This would make the sentences more difficult for parole boards to review or alter.
“The Office shall not seek a sentence of life without parole,” the memo stipulated as well.
Bragg, 48, took office on Jan. 1.
