New York City won’t even protect kids from these thugs

Progressive district attorneys and judges in America’s liberal controlled cities have no desire to prosecute violent criminals.

In many cases, these violent criminals are let out of jail on the very same day they’re arrested.

Now New York City has proven that it won’t protect kids thanks to these woke pro-thug policies.

Repeat offender punches 9-year-old child

MTA officials have revealed that a homeless man who was freed without bail after breaking a random woman’s nose committed another heinous crime once he was released.

Jean Carlos Zarzuela, 30, allegedly sucker-punched an innocent 9-year-old child in the face in Grand Central Station.

Zarzuela was busted after he hit the young child while she stood next to her shocked mother in the station’s dining concourse.

The girl was taken to NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital for treatment after the incident took place. 

Fortunately, Zarzuela was caught on video inside the subway hub, and the MTA released his name and photos to the media shortly thereafter.

The MTA cops knew that the criminal’s last known address was a homeless shelter on E. 125th Street, so they went to the subway station on Lexington Ave. and asked some NYPD transit cops for help.

The NYPD police recognized Zarzuela from the photo and told MTA officials they had seen him around 10 minutes prior.

Not long after, NYPD transit cops found him and took him to the MTA police officers, who arrested him around 10:20 p.m. the same night.

The issue plaguing New York City is a constantly revolving door that allows violent criminals to return to the streets without bail.

In Zarzuela’s case, he was also accused of punching a 56-year-old woman in Grand Central Station on April 4, and MTA cops charged him with felony assault.

However, Manhattan prosecutors dropped the charges against Zarzuela down to a misdemeanor.

According to sources familiar with the case, the decision was made after police and prosecutors did not get a supporting deposition from the victim, which is required by law within five days if bail is set.

A broken system on display

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Pamela Goldsmith ordered Zarzuela to be held on $2,500 cash bail or a $10,000 bond for the first incident.

He also had a bench warrant for separate assault cases in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Just four days before he attacked the young girl, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Laurie Peterson released him without bail.

MTA Communications Director Tim Minton said, “It doesn’t make any sense that this guy – who recently was released after being charged with randomly punching someone else and breaking that victim’s nose – should be back in a public space where he can attack others, especially children.”

“The people responsible for the criminal justice system need to learn from this episode before more innocent people become victims,” he added.
