"Did this confrontation have to happen?" Ocasio-Cortez asked on Twitter.

Umm,no.

Good. Now charge the pig.

F*cking cops.

I'm surprised the homeless guy had enough money to bribe him make a campaign donation

Now charge the cops who tried to press the charge with murder.  I'm sure they have one under their straining belts.

Fark the pigs.  Hate the damn cops.

That was my first question.  How'd the guy pay off Vance if he was homeless?

This is the same Cy Vance from the recent Trump tax returns fight. He's a Manhattan DA. I wouldn't be surprised if he's doing this just to burnish his anti-conservative bona fides.

Maybe this homeless guy must have known Jeffrey Epstein or Harvey Weinstein personally.

if we don't let the cops beat up homeless people that short union guy is going to cry.

Too busy continuing the fight for Trump's tax returns to worry about the small stuff.

I love how they said that the cop's right hand was injured when the homeless guy kicked him while they had him laid out on the subway platform. Sure, he didn't hurt his hand by punching the guy in the head repeatedly.

The resisting charge was not dropped to protect the city in the forthcoming lawsuit. NYPD trying to end homelessness one unprovoked assualt at a time.

I don't think that's gonna offer very much protection, the video is pretty clear, the assault is pretty unwarranted, and in a country with a functional government, the officer would be facing personal culpability, not just the department...

That video kept reminding me of that Joker movie, I don't know why.

Look, if you're not as meek as a country mouse with an anxiety disorder while being violently detained/arrested by a cadre of heavily-armed, shouting, sweaty, unmasked thugs with badges and unlimited power, who have a well-demonstrated desire to "fark people up" (especially homeless people) and kill them for no reason, and you struggle against them wrenching your arms around in unnatural ways and sitting on your lungs and choking the literal life out of you, you deserve to spend a few decades in the clink to consider how you might have reacted differently.

This is called "public safety". Don't you feel safer with this meathead around, happily assaulting people who take up 2 seats in an empty subway car?

Boy, there's a name I haven't heard in awhile. He's a Jr., BTW. Sr. died in 2002 per Wikipedia.

Same Cy Vance who filed a felony charge against him in the first place. Same Cy Vance who dropped a fraud case against Ivanka and Don Jr in 2012 after their lawyer donated $25,000 to his campaign.

Dude's a straight-up reptile.

Cy Sr was a righteous dude, by all accounts. This one....ain't.

Cy Vance faces a big choice right now with respect to his future, his job, his place in history, American politics, and the future of American Democracy. It's similar to the choice Robert Mueller faced, except that because of the Mueller fiasco, Vance already knows that existing norms and institutions will not do what needs to be done if he does the bare minimum necessary within the guidelines.

I did (and still do) believe Mueller wants to do the right thing, but he's a product of lifelong adherence to an authoritarian structure that he *thought* existed to do exactly that and is so damned indoctrinated that it took him years to even begin realizing how wrong he was. But even though I think Vance is more selfish, more corrupt, and less honest than Mueller, I hold hope that he sees putting Trump in prison as a not just a potential feather in his cap, but a feather from a Roc, or a Phoenix

The election will choose for him.

where the hell is this coming from? It has to be corruption if a homeless man is freed?

Accused of taking up more than one seat on an empty train. Then moved to a different car. I am shocked that he didn't get the wrath of the whole precinct for such a heinous crime.

I guess you're unfamiliar with Vance's MO

We have to end immunity for prosecutors.  The ADA who filed these charges should be disbarred and  belongs in jail with the cops.  The charges are utterly bullshiat and they left the resisting arrest charge so they can dismiss it in exchange for a waiver of the right to sue the cops.  That's SOP for prosecutors and dirty cops.

I'd be surprised if he was aware of it.   There are lots of ADAs who handle this stuff.  But you can't have dirty cops with dirty prosecutors protecting them.

It they say to this guy, sign this form or spend the next year in jail waiting for trial.  That's how they get away with it.
