In Mayor de Blasio’s New York City, 103 arrests does not mean jail

The Marxist mayor has completely given in to the criminal element.

In Marxist Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New York City, a career criminal with more than 100 arrests to his name can walk the streets freely even after he is arrested for cruelly shoving a 92-year-old woman into a Manhattan fire hydrant, thus leaving his victim too scared to walk alone in her own neighborhood.

Crime like this is rampant in Mayor de Blasio’s New York City. What does the mayor do about it? This.

That move by Hizzoner will not help that elderly lady who was assaulted. She is a Bronx native named Geraldine, who spoke to the press on Tuesday with the condition her last name be withheld for reasons of safety. The NYPD arrested convicted sex offender Rashid Brimmage, 31, charging him with the attack on Geraldine. Within hours he was back on the street. The serial offender has been arrested 103 times since 2005 for crimes and sex offenses. Brimmage was convicted of sexual misconduct in 2012, then arrested for two sex offenses in 2014. In May of that year, he was busted for exposing and fondling himself on an East Harlem street and most recently, he was arrested March 9 in Manhattan and hit with criminal possession of a controlled substance, assault and attempted assault charges.

At the time of the attack, Brimmage had three open criminal cases in the city, according to court records. He was given a desk appearance ticket for the bust and ordered to return to court at the end of July. The mayor’s latest proposal to stop this kind of crime? Reallocating funds to social services—one version of “defund the police.”

None of the mayor’s plans are likely to do Geraldine any good, as she tries to live by herself in New York City: “I thought a brick hit me or something when he hit me on the left side of my head, and I went right down and hit my head against the hydrant,” she said of the attack. “Blood was coming out, not spurting blood, but blood was dripping.” The older lady has lived in Manhattan for more than 50 years and was on her way to the store when Brimmage allegedly shoved her to the ground near Third Avenue and East 16th Street in Gramercy Park at about 3:30 p.m. last Friday. The former elementary school teacher said her physical wounds were minor and have healed, but the mental anguish has been much worse.

“Mostly I’m shaken. My head still hurts where it was bleeding, where I hit the hydrant, or where he hit me, I don’t know,” she said. “Mainly it’s psychological, just the fear of going out on the street,” she added. “This damned guy put me in a state where I’m fearful to walk the streets alone. So my building super’s trying to find somebody who will walk me to a park nearby or to the supermarket, that kind of thing.” A 92-year old lady can’t even walk to the store without being attacked by a career criminal. Welcome to de Blasio’s New York City.
