Judge Judy torches DA Alvin Bragg for wasting taxpayer money on Trump case, ignoring serious NYC crime problem

 June 22, 2024

Celebrity TV judge Judge Judy Sheindlin is known for holding nothing back in her opinions on any given subject. 

Recently, she had quite a bit to say about Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is still doing endzone dances in the wake of the verdict that hammered former President Donald Trump with 34 felony charges.

According to the Daily Caller, Judge Judy trashed Bragg for focusing on "nonsense" like going after Trump and ignoring real world matters affecting people in his jurisdiction, such as the rampant crime and uptick in violent attacks on the streets of New York City.

She made the comments in a recent interview with Chris Wallace on an episode of Max’s "Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace."

What did she say?

Judge Judy admonished Bragg for not paying more attention to the crime in the streets of New York City that make it even more of a dangerous city than it was before.

"I would be happier, as someone who owns property in Manhattan, if the district attorney of New York County would take care of criminals who were making it impossible for citizens to walk in the streets and use the subway, to use his efforts to keep those people off the street, than to spend $5 million or $10 million of taxpayers’ money trying Donald Trump on this nonsense," the former TV judge said.

She added, "That’s my view. But I, as a taxpayer in this country, resent using the system for your own personal self-aggrandizement."

And she's not being dramatic or exaggerating the problem, as NYC crime is on the rise, and it's getting worse by the day with soft-on-crime prosecutors like Bragg taking it easy on criminals.

The Daily Caller noted:

Since taking office, Bragg has downgraded 52% of felonies to misdemeanors and only convicted slightly over half of the defendants he prosecuted for felonies, the New York Post reported in November 2022.

Judge Judy said one would have to twist themselves "into a pretzel" to figure out what the crime was.

Social media reacts

Many had their own opinions in response to Judge Judy's thoughts on the situation.

"She’s right 100%," one X user wrote.

Another X user, who clearly disagreed, wrote, "Judge Judy is a reality TV actor. Her input is not relevant. Donald Trump is a convicted felon on 34 counts & a liable sexual assaulter for ETERNITY."
