Manhattan Prosecutor Refuses To Prosecute Rioters

Although they vandalized St. Patrick’s cathedral during their violent protests, the rioters who allegedly did the dastardly deed will get a complete pass.

The reason is because the Manhattan prosecutor, despite taking an oath to uphold the law and constitution, is refusing to launch a case or file charges.

According to Breitbart News, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance said filing charges would hurt the community:

The prosecution of protestors charged with these low-level offenses undermines critical bonds between law enforcement and the communities we serve. Days after the killing of George Floyd, our nation and our city are at a crossroads in our continuing endeavor to confront racism and systemic injustice wherever it exists. Our office has a moral imperative to enact public policies which assure all New Yorkers that in our justice system and our society, black lives matter and police violence is a crime.

Breitbart noted that in 1858, “builders laid the cornerstone of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and its doors were later opened in 1879. It was over 160 years ago when Archbishop John Hughes announced his inspired ambition to build the ‘new’ St. Patrick’s Cathedral.”
