NYC soft-on-crime DA Alvin Bragg admits to getting ‘a knot’ in stomach when family takes subway: report
New York City's progressive District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, recently confessed to New York Magazine that he gets "a knot in my stomach every time my family takes the subway," due to the rise in crime in the city. Bragg, who has been in office since January, has championed a soft-on-crime approach, refusing to prosecute minor offenses such as jumping subway turnstiles. He believes that this approach, while controversial, will lead to a safer city in the long run. While New York City experienced a slight reduction in overall crime last year, some subway riders are deeply concerned for their safety and are calling for stricter law enforcement.
