Speedy recovery, kiddo 

I've always considered myself a borderline leftist, but this cart-before-the-horse style of criminal justice sent chills down my spine: 

She wouldn’t prosecute dozens of misdemeanors and some felonies, including third-degree burglary, escaping from a correctional facility and offenses that resemble a recent attack on an Asian American in Manhattan. She also plans to offer an alternative-to-incarceration program “in every case. No exceptions,” including murder, rape and gunpoint robbery. 

If you live in the (212), please vote for Alvin Bragg for Manhattan district attorney:

“What I’ll do: Draw from my professional and life experience to build a DA’s office focused on reversing mass incarceration. Create a unit to investigate police misconduct. Overhaul the sex crimes unit to get justice for sexual assault survivors. Promote schools, not jails. And I will refuse campaign donations from lawyers who appear before the office. The fight for criminal justice reform is the fight of our times—and it is the fight of my life.”
