What kind of DA would Sharpton pray for? The kind that’s there to serve criminals.
When Bragg took office, he released a Day One memo which told prosecutors not to pursue prison sentences for many crimes including armed robberies and not to ask for life sentences.
As a result of his pro-crime guidelines, more than half of felony cases were downgraded to misdemeanors. Felony convictions fell from 68% to 51%, misdemeanor convictions from 53% to 29% and very few of those ever saw prison. Bragg’s pro-crime prosecutorial pipeline turned felonies into misdemeanors and then the offenders never served a day in prison.
Murders rose 10%, aggravated assaults were up 11% and robberies shot up 25%
Now Sharpton held a prayer vigil for DA Alvin Bragg.
Reverend Al Sharpton invited faith leaders to the National Action Network House of Justice Headquarter Saturday for a prayer vigil for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
“We come to ask you to cover the District Attorney of Manhattan Alvin Bragg, cover his family give them extra protection,” Sharpton prayed after an envelope with a death threat and white powder was found in the mailroom of the Manhattan District Attorney offices.
“We fought for the right to vote. We marched and went to jail for the right to vote. And after many years we have elected the first Black DA in the county of Manhattan and we do not want to see him having to do his job under threat,” said Sharpton.
Sharpton is as much of a religious man as Bragg is a DA.
“We’ve gone past inference now, to direct threats. We should not be surprised that someone sent an envelope with white powder threatening the life of the DA,” said Sharpton.
At the third meeting with Quintana, Sharpton made sure to go alone — wearing a cowboy hat and chomping on an unlit cigar, which was made famous in footage from the FBI surveillance leaked in 2002.
“The agent said you would get $3,500 per kilo,” said Curington, who was not at the meetings but was told about them by Sharpton.
“Sharpton moved on it, and they sprung the trap on him right away. They got him.
“Al told me himself. He bit and took the bait.”
This is what the Bragg defense looks like.
In a real justice system, Sharpton would be in jail. Instead he’s a political kingmaker for racists and shakedown artists.
