"It is something that is sad, tragic, criminal and for which we sought and have accountability, but thankfully that is not the experience that New Yorkers are having and so we're working every day to make sure that things like this do not happen and when they happen, people are held accountable," Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said.

DA Bragg makes yet another completely tone-deaf statement that ignores the severe trauma experienced by the victim, who, but for a miracle, should have been the victim of murder. Clearly, DA Bragg has more compassion for criminals than victims.

"But thankfully, that is not the experience of most New Yorkers" says Bragg, in a pathetic attempt to place this senseless act of violence in context. What kind of asinine statement is that for a DA to make after a sentencing? Is he a statistician or a DA? Does he not realize it is utterly callous to the victim to say something like this? It seems he just has no clue what it means to be a prosecutor - what it is like to sit with a grieving family who has just lost a loved one to senseless violence. It is like a doctor telling a patient who has a rare, aggressive form of cancer, "Thankfully, this is a rare type of cancer, so even though you will likely die, not many others will have to suffer the same fate." Any DA who would say something like has no compassion for victims and their families, and not a whit of common sense. It is just sad how incompetent he really is as a prosecutor.

Hell be out in 4. If it’s a state prison sentence always cut the sentence in half.

Bring back death penalty and use it for cases with overwhelming evidence who did it for serious crimes like murder. Make it high bar -eye witness, dna, fingerprint, surveillance, , etc. - all must meet to lower risk of wrongful execution.

Attempted murder and murder should be treated the same. Luck and/​or incompetence shouldn’t benefit crazy assholes.
