THE CORBYNIZATION OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONTINUES APACE: Manhattan DA Drops Charges Against 30 Columbia Protesters Arrested Over Campus Building Occupation.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office, led by anti-Trump prosecutor Alvin Bragg, dismissed trespassing charges against 30 Columbia University protesters who were arrested for occupying a campus building.

The Washington Free Beacon attended the Thursday afternoon proceedings at the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse. A trove of students and their supporters, many of whom used face masks and keffiyehs to cover their faces, streamed into the building just before 3 p.m., the Free Beacon observed.

Inside the courtroom—where audio and video recording is not allowed—a prosecutor in Bragg’s office argued that the defendants should not face criminal penalties, citing their lack of criminal histories and arguing that the protesters will face internal discipline at Columbia.

The prosecutor also argued that Bragg’s office lacked evidence to land convictions in the cases, given those who occupied Hamilton Hall wore masks and covered up surveillance cameras. New York City police arrested the occupiers while they were inside Hamilton Hall.

“Those Black Bloc tactics work,” John Sexton adds, “which is why leftist criminals planning to break the law use them. In theory, someone who was there could testify about what happened, but so long as there is not one honest person in the group, prosecutors can’t prove who did what. Or at least, it makes it easier to claim they can’t prosecute cases that Alvin Bragg’s office surely didn’t want to prosecute anyway. Everyone is off the hook thanks to vandalism and those stupid face scarves.”
