Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg defends releasing migrants who 'attacked cops in Times Square' - as Supreme Court judge slams him for prosecuting COVID-19 vaccine card dodgers while letting violent perps walk free | 3 Feb 2024 | Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has defended the decision to release a group of migrants who allegedly attacked police officers in Times Square, as a Supreme Court justice slams him for prosecuting COVID vaccine card dodgers. Seven suspects were arrested and charged with Robbery and Felony Assault following a vicious attack on NYPD officers in Times Square last Saturday. Four of those believed to have been involved were released without bail are now feared to have fled by bus to California using a church-affiliated migrant charity... Earlier this week, state Supreme Court Judge Brendan T. Lantry slammed Bragg and dismissed felony charges brought by his office against two New Yorkers who bought fake COVID vaccine cards. In a ruling, Lantry called the case overkill and threw out the charges against them, the two unknown individuals.
