Fmr. NY Gov. David Paterson Condemns DA for Not Prosecuting Shoplifters

Former Democratic New York Governor David Paterson sharply criticized New York City’s district attorneys office for declining to prosecute shoplifters and looters since they will not bring cases against anyone who steals anything $500 or less.

“It’s another example of the anti-social, lack of judgment and lack of concern for anybody else other than the individuals who are doing this,” Paterson told “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis Sunday.

“It was very encouraging to hear that Eric Adams, unlike a lot of previous Democratic candidates, has not let these situations go by without comment.
