“The system continues to fail us. We are not safe anymore. No even the members of the service,” she said. “I know you were tired of these laws, especially the ones from the new DA. I hope he’s watching you speak through me right now.”
The crowd stood to applaud her remarks.
Shortly after Bragg took over the DA’s office, he announced it would no longer prosecute some crimes, like marijuana misdemeanors, prostitution and fare evasion. He also advised lesser charges for some low-level drug offenses, burglaries and robberies.
Bragg said this will allow attorneys more time to prosecute violent offenses.MORE NEWS: Remembering NYPD Officer Jason Rivera: Wake Held For 22-Year-Old Killed In Line Of Duty In Harlem
