The New York Daily News reports that the landlord of the New York City apartment where an Asian woman allegedly was stabbed to death by a homeless criminal with a lengthy rap sheet has slammed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over the vicious murder.
Assamad Nash, 25, who has 8 prior arrests, is suspected of fatally stabbing 35-year-old Christina Yuna Lee in her Lower East Side Chinatown apartment. He faces murder and burglary charges. He apparently was freed without bail for three of those previous arrests, which are “still pending in Manhattan court.
“This never should have happened,” said the building’s landlord Brian Chin. “This guy should never have been here, with the rap sheet he has. He should’ve been behind bars. He shouldn’t have been on the street, and then this never would’ve happened.”
He continued, faulting D.A. Bragg for the crime:
From a landlord’s perspective, from storeowner’s perspective, we’re terrified of this, his policies and what not. Armed robbery of a store is now a petty larceny? What insanity is this? This guy, his rap sheet is a mile long, he should have been behind bars. Assault? Menacing? How is he out? This is outrageous.
We’ve been staunch members of this community and supporters of this community since we built it. And to see the destruction wrecked over one mayor’s term and one DA’s term, it’s not just shocking and appalling, it’s outrageous just from a personal level as well.
Strangely, citizens like Chin don’t seem to be fully onboard with the pro-crime policies of leftists like New York’s Democrat leadership.
