Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg keeps finding new rakes to step on.

Bragg continues to demonstrate why George Soros-backed prosecutors are a menace to public safety.

And Alvin Bragg just got some more bad news that will turn everything upside down.

Bragg folded in the face of a woke mob led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and charged 24-year-old Marine Daniel Penny with second degree manslaughter in the death of mentally ill homeless man Jordan Neely.

Penny argued he acted in self-defense after Neely – who police arrested over 40 times and who has a history of beating women and other violent crimes – terrorized passengers on the subway.

Ocasio-Cortez and other social justice warriors latched on to this case because Penny is white and Neely was black.

But in an interview with the New York Post, the affable and understated Penny shot down the notion race had anything to do with this incident.

“This had nothing to do with race,” Penny began.

“I judge a person based on their character. I’m not a white supremacist,” Penny added.

Penny’s lawyer Thomas Kenniff laid out the facts of the case and said eyewitnesses from the subway car would back up the fact that Neely terrorized other passengers and Penny acted to defend them by restraining Neely.

“I can tell you that the threats, the menacing, the terror that Jordan Neely introduced to that train has already been well documented. I don’t think it’s going to even be controverted. There are numerous witnesses from all different walks of life who have absolutely no motive to do anything other than to recount what actually happened. They are uniform in their recollection of events,” Kenniff told the Post.

Penny also explained to the Post that he joined the Marine Corps after growing up in a community of firefighters and first responders that were affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

In the Marines, Penny rose to the rank of Sargent and explained what he loved most was helping and protecting other people.

“I loved leading Marines and I love being around Marines,” Penny also told the Post. “I love helping people.”

Alvin Bragg caving to political pressure and charging Penny with second degree manslaughter was a shameful act.

But the facts of the case and Penny’s character are going to make it difficult for Bragg to win a conviction.
