Nolte: Looting Charges Dropped Against Hundreds in Democrat-Run New York City:
Far-left NBC News reports that out of the 485 looting arrests in New York City during last year’s 1619 Riots, a whopping 222 had all charges dropped against them.
Of the remaining, a mere 73 were convicted of the much lesser charge of trespassing, which means no jail time. Forty cases involved juveniles and landed in family court. Only 128 cases are still open, as Breitbart News reported.
Basically, what we now know is that if New York’s Democrats sympathize with the political cause you’re looting on behalf of, looting is legal, or at least de-criminalized:
In late May and early June 2020, looters smashed storefronts in the Bronx and Manhattan boroughs of New York City.

Many were caught on tape, some with their faces visible. Others even posted their own videos of their actions those nights on social media. Hundreds were arrested.

But a review of NYPD data by the investigative team at WNBC, the NBC owned station in New York, shows that a large percentage of the cases — particularly in the Bronx — were dismissed, and that many convictions were for counts like trespassing that carry no jail time.
As you can imagine, the victims of these crimes, the shopkeepers who lost everything, are not happy. --->READMORE HERE

District attorneys drop most looting cases from last year's riots in NYC, leaving business owners 'disgusted':
District attorneys in New York City have dropped looting cases against hundreds of suspects, who were charged during last summer's riots in the wake of George Floyd's death, according to a new report. Allowing the looters to get off scot-free has disgusted some NYC business owners who had their stores ravaged by last year's protests and riots that occurred on a regular basis.
According to NYPD data analyzed by WNBC-TV, there were 118 arrests made in the Bronx in early June last year — during the worst of the looting from riots. Despite many of the suspects being caught on surveillance footage or bragging about committing crimes on social media, Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark has reportedly dismissed 73 of those cases, more than 60% of the cases. There have been 19 convictions for mostly lesser counts, like trespassing, which carries no jail time. There are 18 cases that remain open.
Jessica Betancourt owns an eyeglass shop that was looted and destroyed in the Bronx last June.
"Those numbers, to be honest with you, is disgusting," Betancourt said of so few looters being prosecuted. "I was in total shock that everything is being brushed off to the side." --->READ MORE HERE
