Cry Vance JR clearly does not understand the "no broken windows" concept. His refusal to prosecute means NYPD will likley not arrest if there is no consequence for those arrested.

Yes, 1A matters, but how does one differentiate between peaceful protestors he wishes to excuse and potential looters who are just waiting for a target? 

Peaceful Manhattan Protesters Won’t Be Prosecuted, D.A. Says

  • Brooklyn D.A. enacted similar policy for Floyd protesters

  • New York police say said more than 2,500 people were arrested

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said his office won’t prosecute those arrested in his borough for unlawful assembly or disorderly conduct associated with the George Floyd protests.


The office policy “is designed to minimize unnecessary interactions with the criminal justice system, reduce racial disparities and collateral consequences in low-level offense prosecutions, and enable the office and court system to preserve resources for the prosecution of serious crimes,” according to a statement Vance’s office issued Friday.


Previously, such charges could be dismissed within six months, according to Vance. However, he said his office will continue to charge and prosecute those accused of violence against police officers or looting.

This is thre tip of the iceberg. You watch how they don't prosecute looters and rioters, or give them a slap on the wrist. Meanwhile, the building dept is still handing out $10k fines for going to work.
