NYC DA Cy Vance

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance announced Friday that his office won’t prosecute protesters for low-level offenses.

Vance said in a statement that he won’t pursue raps involving unlawful assembly,  disorderly conduct and “other protest-related charges where appropriate” — as people around the city continue to demonstrate against cases of excessive police force amid the Minneapolis cop-brutality death of George Floyd.

“The D.A.’s Office declines to prosecute these arrests in the interest of justice,” Vance said.
