Manhattan and Erie County District Attorneys
Updated: Jun 8
I want to commend Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance for his position that he will not prosecute low-level protest related arrests. I will commit to the same position for Tompkins County.
I also want to commend Erie County DA John Flynn for prosecuting the two officers involved in the assault of the 75 year old man in Buffalo last week. The video evidence is clear and compelling proof that the officers committed a crime.
Doing the right thing is often controversial but it is the job of the DA to make those decisions.
