As crime rates in New York City increase, House Republicans on Monday morning produced a fiery video showcasing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s lax approach to fighting crime.
The House Judiciary Committee recently created a video highlighting Bragg’s “soft on crime” policies in contrast to his current accusations against former President Donald Trump, which many legal experts have questioned as being entirely political. This was done just before the committee convened a hearing on crime in the Big Apple.
The film depicts several violent crimes, including stabbings in the metro area and violence against women and children, as well as news clippings and local accounts of these crimes.
“In the present day, no area in New York City is secure,” according to a video that shows a vicious assault. In another footage, it is said that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg “is altering how some crimes will be prosecuted with just days on the job. He claims he will drop certain felony charges and stop pursuing prison time for other offenses.”
In the Big Apple, crime is a significant issue. In New York City, “from 2010 through 2021, there were 730 domestic violence murder incidents totaling 783 victims; these victims represented 16.7% of all homicides (783 of 4,687) that happened in New York City.”
Last year, New York City had a 22 percent increase in overall crime.
Bragg concentrates on successfully prosecuting President Joe Biden’s political rival despite rising crime. No president or previous president had ever been charged, much less one who was running for reelection, therefore Bragg’s indictment was unprecedented.
According to a recent YouGov/Yahoo poll, the majority of Americans do not believe that Trump will suffer any consequences as a result of the New York grand jury’s decisions. After the indictment, the former president moved ahead of Biden in a potential general election matchup.
According to legal experts, additional polling indicates that the electorate is aware of the indictment’s politicized nature. According to a CNN-commissioned survey, 76% of adult respondents in the United States think politics had an impact on “the decision to indict Trump.”
The beginning of Bragg’s case has not been good. Tuesday, a federal court rejected his petition for a temporary restraining order to stop Jim Jordan (R-OH), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, from interviewing a former prosecutor regarding Bragg’s case against Trump.
