There is no shortage of stories coming out of New York City supporting the notion that progressive Democrats place the social justice concept of “equity” above the safety of law-abiding citizens — who respond by continuing to elect these same politicians responsible for the criminal justice reforms that are driving the rise in crime.
Alexander Wright is accused of beating a “hero’’ Bronx subway cleaner in a vicious attack last week and is currently being held on a paltry $5,000 bail, with his latest arrest being his 41st, according to the New York Post.
The newspaper tagged Wright “a revolving-door-justice poster boy,” after he pummeled MTA employee Anthony Nelson last week for intervening as he harassed straphangers. Nelson would be hospitalized after the beat down with a broken collarbone and dislocated nose.
“The horrific assault was just the latest in a long list of crimes attributed to Wright — from a random slugfest targeting an Asian woman in Chinatown to throwing hot coffee on two traffic agents in Midtown last year,” the Post reported.

“If you look at his history, you’ll throw up,’’ Robert Kelley, vice president of Transport Workers Union Local 100, told the paper of Wright’s criminal record.
“The system has let society down [more than] 40 times,” Kelley said. “At the end of the day, these are all similar cases of assault.”
The article detailed some of Wright’s more recent arrests, including a June 2021 arrest for allegedly punching a 55-year-old Asian woman in Lower Manhattan — that attack was caught on video.

He had been arrested a month earlier after being accused of throwing scalding coffee on the two traffic agents, according to police. That same year, Wright was arrested for second-degree assault, harassment and felony criminal mischief.
Yet, he was allowed to continue walking the streets of New York City, preying on whoever was unfortunate enough to cross his path and capture his attention.
Nelson’s mother, Lisa Nelson, angrily called Wright “a menace to society,” according to ABC7 New York.
“This man Alexander Wright should not be walking the streets,” she said Tuesday during a union rally held outside the Bronx courthouse on behalf of her son. “I hope these politicians and these judges give him the max that he deserves and do not let him walk free.”
