Mother of murdered veteran takes flamethrower to Bragg’s ‘no one is above the law’ slogan

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg promised not to “normalize serious criminal conduct” in the wake of former President Donald Trump’s indictment and arrest, but one mother is calling foul.

Sgt. Hason Correa was an Afghanistan war veteran before his tragic murder in 2018. He was stabbed to death in Harlem in a brutal attack that left his father, Wesley Correa, permanently disabled. The horrific killing should have been enough to send the barbarians responsible away for the rest of their lives, but thanks to Bragg and the rise in soft-on-crime prosecutors, mother Madeline Brame was forced to watch as the people involved were given little more than a slap on the wrist.

During Wednesday’s “Fox & Friends” panel, Brame called out Bragg’s seemingly-newfound interest in justice.

“If no one is above the law, then I don’t understand how Alvin Bragg could dismiss murder and gang assault indictments against two of the people involved in the murder of my son,” she said. “Because it seems to me that murderers are above the law in New York City. So all of this ‘no one is above the law’ nonsense is just that, nonsense.”

“We see it every single day in the black and brown communities. Every day, all day. Everyone is above the law. They’re not even making it to the DA’s office, the cases are not even being prosecuted,” she continued. “They’re being released from the precincts with a desk appearance ticket and a referral to a community-based organization that has shown no measurable outcomes of effectiveness of what they’re doing with our millions and billions of tax dollars.”

It’s little surprise that such violent offenders were released without true punishment. As American Wire previously reported, Bragg’s chief prosecutor Meg Reiss has bragged about handing down light sentences to such people.

“We know incarceration doesn’t really solve any problems,” Reiss declared during a Peace Institute event in May 2021, according to Fox News Digital. Reiss also allegedly said that criminals are not “bad dudes” while tearing into juries for believing police officers facing misconduct allegations deserve the “benefit of the doubt.”


“So we’re really trying to shift to restorative outcomes being the real default to the work that we do,” Reiss commented. “So there’s some things where that already happens… for people that are charged with causing harm, actual violence… where they actually cause actual harm to another person.”

It’s enough to make one wonder if Bragg’s sudden dedication to not “normalizing” criminal conduct has more to do with Trump’s political aspirations than any crime that may or may not have been committed.
