George Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg walked right into a buzzsaw.
This was a disaster of his own making.
And a Judge just dressed down Alvin Bragg for this insane decision.
Then New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio imposed a COVID19 vaccine mandate scheme in 2021.
De Blasio was one of the COVID tyrants who wanted to punish Americans that wouldn’t go along with the Left’s preferred biomedical security state.
New Yorkers had to show proof of vaccination or else they couldn’t enter restaurants, gyms, bars, movie theaters, and other entertainment venues.
The COVID vaccine proved not to be able to prevent transmission or infection by the coronavirus.
Current New York City Mayor Eric Adams eventually lifted the vaccine passport requirement.
But that didn’t come soon enough for 16 individuals District Attorney Bragg arrested and charged with felonies for possessing counterfeit vaccine cards they bought from a New Jersey stripper.
Two of those charged, R.V. and J.O., successfully petitioned Judge Brendan T. Lantry to dismiss the charges against them.
Judge Lantry blasted Bragg saying the DA “routinely — nearly daily — move[s] to dismiss significantly more serious counts or entire indictments.”
Bragg recently let five illegal aliens arrested for beating a New York City Police officer stroll out of court after not asking for bail.
The ruling explained that the real injustice would have been allowing this prosecution to move forward.
“An indictment or any count thereof may be dismissed in furtherance of justice…when, even though there may be no basis for dismissal as a matter of law upon any ground specified…such dismissal is required as a matter of judicial discretion by the existence of some compelling factor, consideration, or circumstance clearly demonstrating that conviction or prosecution of the defendant upon such indictment or count would constitute or result in injustice,” the dismissal ruling read.
Four years later, Americans are just trying to pretend that the COVID lockdowns and mandates never happened.
The Democrats who pushed lockdowns the hardest, like California Governor Gavin Newsom and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, all handily won re-election.
Dr. Anthony Fauci retired and will collect his government pension while not facing an investigation into his disastrous decisions during the pandemic.
There has been no reckoning for the architects of one of the great policy failures and assaults on freedom and liberty in American history.
District Attorney Alvin Bragg wanted to hold everyday New Yorkers accountable for failing to abide by an unjust mandate.
Thankfully, sanity and a reasonable Judge intervened.
