    Manhattan DA Charges Bodega Worker with Murder After Stabbing Violent Ex-Con in Self-Defense

    Manhattan DA Charges Bodega Worker with Murder After Stabbing Violent Ex-Con in Self-Defense (VIDEO)

    Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg charged a bodega worker with murder when he clearly acted in self defense.

    51-year-old Jose Alba stabbed his attacker several times in self-defense and now he’s at Rikers Island jail facing a murder charge.

    Alba fatally stabbed Austin Simon, 35, a career criminal who violently attacked him behind the counter last Friday night.

    According to reports, Austin Simon’s girlfriend got into an argument with Alba after her EBT card was declined when she tried to purchase a bag of chips.

    The disgruntled woman then left the bodega, ran home and returned with her boyfriend – and that’s when the confrontation escalated.

    According to Alba’s defense lawyer, the 32-year-old woman took a knife out of her purse and stabbed the bodega worker in the shoulder, the New York Post reported.

    She is not facing charges for stabbing Jose Alba – But Jose Alba is facing a second-degree murder charge for fatally stabbing Austin Simon – AFTER the assailants stabbed him and violently attacked him.

    I bet if the DA knew somebody that killed someone in self defense they wouldn't charge them with anything.

    New video shows the girlfriend stabbing Alba as well, with no justification of self defense.

    No charges filed.

    Manhattan DA Drops Murder Charge Against Jose Alba

    Manhattan DA Drops Murder Charge Against Jose Alba. It Never Should Have Been Filed.

    https://reason.com/2022/07/19/manhat...ve-been-filed/

    The initial decision to pursue prosecution runs contrary to the campaign promises of Alvin Bragg, who claims to understand that, so often, the process is the punishment.

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has dropped a murder charge against a bodega worker who stabbed a customer during a highly publicized altercation that reinvigorated a debate around self-defense and victimization.

    Bragg acknowledged in Manhattan Criminal Court that his office could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the 61-year-old clerk, Jose Alba, "was not justified in his use of deadly physical force."

    Around 11 p.m. on July 1, Austin Simon, 35, entered the store shouting profanities at Alba after Simon's girlfriend's payment was declined for a bag of chips. Simon then came behind the cashier's counter, shoved Alba, hovered over him, and appeared to try to forcibly remove him from behind the cash wrap. Alba subsequently grabbed a knife and stabbed Simon, ultimately killing him.

    Additional surveillance footage shows Simon's girlfriend telling Alba that Simon was about to come in and "$#@! [him] up." And while the fight was ongoing, she can be seen stabbing Alba—although no charges have been filed against her, including for unlawful possession of a weapon.

    Good.
    “The spirits of darkness are now among us. We have to be on guard so that we may realize what is happening when we encounter them and gain a real idea of where they are to be found. The most dangerous thing you can do in the immediate future will be to give yourself up unconsciously to the influences which are definitely present.” ~ Rudolf Steiner
