GREG GUTFELD: Democrats' New York City is a criminal safe haven

Only in New York! Start spreading the news, we’re all gonna die.

So yesterday, a grand jury indicted Daniel Penny in Jordan Neely’s accidental death. You know the story, Penny’s the Marine who stepped in when Neely — a deranged, homeless felon — was threatening passengers on the subway. So thanks to Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg, who chose to charge Penny, this heroic Marine may go to jail for doing what he thought was right. That sucks.

So what’s this mean for all of us? Should this affect the way you defend yourself in a tense situation, especially in New York or other liberal cities, or when you’re around Kat? If cities cannot guarantee your safety, then it’s placed on your imperfect shoulders. That’s a funny word to screw up.

Like that knife fight, I always say that, just like that knife fight in the middle of a New York City street last week, two guys start fist-fighting in the crosswalk, one pulls out a knife, fatally stabs the other guy to death, a few people tried to stop it, but they didn’t want to get stabbed either, and everybody else just walked on by. You can see Jamie Lissow go right by there. 

You can hardly blame them, though. Why get involved, right? They learned their lesson. Just wait for the cops to show up and dry chalk outline on the ground. Sadly, New York City has used up so much chalk, there’s none left for the schoolteachers. Those diagrams always look like they’re dancing. But get this: The victim, the victim was wanted for murder in Baltimore. It’s true. The streets of NYC are so bad, even the murderers aren’t safe.

So why is this happening? Well, because Democrats allow it to happen. They look the other way. They reduce sentences for violent crime. They release predators, they demonize the police, they eliminate bail, and then they call it criminal justice reforms, but the only people who love the reforms are the criminals themselves. 

Their lives have never been better. And if you ask them, they’ll say business is booming because it is, and for the rest of us, life becomes a trap where the environment the left fostered allows for dangerous scenarios that force good people to try to do the right thing and get arrested, or don’t do the right thing and die.
