Bragg Admits NYC Subway Crime is a Problem for Him

Over the past couple of years, something has changed about the New York Subway.

There has always been crime down there, but not like what we are seeing recently, with people being raped, attacked, or pushed in front of trains on what seems like a daily basis.

Even Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg conceded that the concerns of straphangers are the same concerns that he has these days when he or a family member travels on the subway, reported the New York Post.

Your Fault

Over the last few months, the NYPD has reported that crime on the subway has dropped by 4.6 percent.

That may be something to celebrate at CompStat meetings, but in the overall scheme of things, that is minuscule when you consider the volume of crime on the subway in recent years.

On the flip side, while the last six months have shown a decrease, last month had a huge spike, likely due to the change in weather, with more and more people riding the transit system. In fact, crime went up 18 percent.

Perhaps that is why one resident admitted that when a family member is riding the subway, it turns their stomach into a “knot.”

As it turns out, soft-on-crime Bragg has the same feelings.

He stated, “I know the statistics that transit crime is down, but when one of my family members gets on the train, I, too, get a knot in my stomach,” during an interview with Fox 5.

You know what the irony in all of this is, right?

While most of us do not have the power to incorporate change, Bragg is one of a handful of people in the city who can actually do something.

A piece of advice, Mr. Bragg…

If you want crime stats to go down, start throwing the book at criminals instead of prosecuting victims and letting thugs off without so much as a rap on the knuckles.
