Ever since the blowback to his Day 1 letter that threatened not to prosecute armed robbers, and ignoring a whole raft of other criminal behaviors, Soros DA Alvin Bragg has been frantically backtracking and playing the victim.
The funeral of one of two NYPD officers is a reminder of who the real victim is.
The widow of slain NYPD officer Jason Rivera ripped Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in her husband’s eulogy at his funeral Friday morning, as she described the gut-wrenching moment she found out he’d been killed.
“Although you won’t be here anymore, I want you to live through me. This system continues to fail us. We are not safe anymore, not even the members of the service. 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,” Dominique Luzuriaga told mourners at St. Patrick’s Cathedral as they gave her a standing ovation.
“I’m sure all of our blue family is tired too. But I promise, we promise, that your death won’t be in vain.”
Rest in Power, as BLMers like to say.
As Luzuriaga delivered the emotionally charged remarks, Bragg was in the audience listening, law enforcement sources said. He also attended Rivera’s wake Thursday night but his family walked into the back so they didn’t have to sit with him and later in the evening, someone told the embattled DA that the family wouldn’t be coming out until he left.
We’re talking about a Latino family here. And it’s a micro-picture of the growing split between pro-crime Dems who pander to black nationalists and their white lefty elites, and everyone else who wants law and order, and public safety.
New York Dems voted Bragg into office. His actions are on their conscience.
Bragg is clearly worried. Pro-crime Soros DAs are facing a backlash and the question is whether the money of their billionaire backers and media spin will be enough to protect them.
How did we get here? Color of Change PAC backed Bragg, and also backed Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar, got over $1 million from George Soros, and backing from a variety of lefty organizations including Win Justice PAC.
Win Justice is also heavily backed by George Soros, but it was created by Planned Parenthood and the SEIU.
In other words, the usual liberal donors paid for this. The blood of New York City’s crime victims is on their hands.
