Curtis Sliwa to Newsmax: With Manhattan DA Bragg, ‘No Consequences’ for Crimes

Guardian Angels founder and former Republican New York City mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa told Newsmax Friday that under Manhattan’s new District Attorney Alvin Bragg, there are now “no consequences” for most crimes.

“This is New York City, where our elected officials want to hug those thugs,” Sliwa said on Newsmax Friday. “‘Let’s hug him, give him love. They don’t mean what they do. Let’s give him a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th7th, chance.’ And to be honest with you, DA Alvin Bragg, this is what he campaigned on. So, the people of Manhattan voted for him knowing this is what they want, this is what they get.”

Bragg said when he became district attorney that he was implementing new charging, bail, plea, and sentencing policies “to increase safety and justice for all,” that would include not prosecuting lesser offenses, and reducing the severity of several others from felonies to misdemeanors, according to his Jan. 3 memo to staff.
