Good news everybody.
After all that rioting, looting and attacks on statues, Manhattan District Attorney’s office brought in Amy Cooper for… calling the cops. If the Manhattan DA’s office had been this assertive when it came to Jeffrey Epstein or Harvey Weinstein, quite a few lives would have changed for the better. Instead, the office wanted to help Epstein.
A group of state elected officials want Attorney General Tish James to investigate Manhattan DA Cy Vance’s failed attempt to reduce millionaire perv Jeffrey Epstein’s sex offender status in 2011.
Quart and the four other legislators are irked by a January 2011 court hearing during which one of Vance’s prosecutors, Assistant Manhattan DA Jennifer Gaffney, recommended Epstein be “classified as a Level One offender instead of a Level Three offender.”
Good luck with that. But they got Amy Cooper. And released the rioters and the looters.
In St. Louis, the District of Columbia, Philadelphia and New York, serious charges against hundreds of people arrested for stealing and torching property have been dismissed.
But they do have Amy Cooper. And feel free to go back to rioting and looting. Also abusing little girls. Cy Vance is on duty.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. on Friday announced that his office will decline to prosecute charges of unlawful assembly or disorderly conduct related to arrests during protests for racial justice and against police brutality in the city.
“The prosecution of protestors charged with these low-level offenses undermines critical bonds between law enforcement and the communities we serve. Days after the killing of George Floyd, our nation and our city are at a crossroads in our continuing endeavor to confront racism and systemic injustice wherever it exists. Our office has a moral imperative to enact public policies which assure all New Yorkers that in our justice system and our society, black lives matter and police violence is a crime.”
And if you call the cops on them, you’ll also go to jail.
