This is the environment created by Alvin Bragg. A New York City parking garage attendant was charged with attempted murder after an alleged violent confrontation with a thief. The attendant was shot twice during the reported robbery attempt but managed to wrestle the gun away from the attacker and fire back at the attacking thief.
Parking garage attendant Moussa Diarra, 57, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon for simply defending himself.
After some uproar – Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has stated that he will not prosecute the parking-garage attendant. Bragg – who is already under fire for indicting former President Donald Trump last week in a fraud-related case – will dismiss the case against Diarra “pending further investigation,” his office said.
The House Judiciary Committee announced on Monday it will hold a field hearing in New York City to “examine how Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s pro-crime, anti-victim policies have led to an increase in violent crime and a dangerous community for New York City residents.”
After the Trump indictment, House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, accused Bragg of “unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority” and demanded that Bragg testify before Congress.
“In light of the serious consequences of your actions, we expect that you will testify about what plainly appears to be a politically motivated prosecutorial decision,” Jordan wrote in a letter to Bragg last month.
