Do You Wonder Why Crime Is Up?

It is by design. 6,500 accused felons go scot-free as NYC DAs decline to prosecute

District attorneys across the Big Apple last year declined to prosecute accused felons at nearly twice the rate of 2019 — letting more than 6,500 suspects off the hook, The Post has learned.

Prosecutors dropped all charges in 16.9 percent of the 38,635 felony cases that were closed in New York City during 2020, according to data compiled by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services.

That rate was 8.7 percent and averaged 8 percent from 2016 through 2019.

The DAs have their reasons/excuses and maybe even one of them is good. (Disclosure rules in the event a plea is taken changed by law thanks to Cuomo and Company, putting witnesses at risk in some cases.)

But the real answer is easier to guess.

“The DAs are worried about getting re-elected,” the source said.

“Plus, you throw in a bucket of ‘woke’ and no one is getting prosecuted.”

Welcome to the pool of anarchy that used to be the USA.
