This HATE CRIME happened @ Grand Central Station in MANHATTAN which means that the Pusillanimous District Attorney Alvin (Nothin’ To) Bragg (About) will be prosecuting this case.
He is one of the Absolutely WORST DA’s in America; he’ll give the RACIST ATTACKERS “No-Cash”-Bail/Release-On-Own-Recognizance, thereby allowing them to commit VIOLENT CRIMES while waiting for their court date for their CURRENT HATE CRIMES.
…And then, he’ll cut a Soft, feathery Wrist-Slap-With-A-Velvet-Glove , PLEA DEAL with the RACIST ATTACKERS.
You can do BETTER, MANHATTAN.
Get Rid of Rapist/Murderer LOVER Pusillanimous District Attorney Alvin (Nothin’ To) Bragg (About) !!!
