Manhattan has a lefty progressive new district attorney whose policies could either sink or benefit New York City as a whole. In a memo released this week, newly minted DA Alvin Bragg told his prosecutors that swathes of common crimes can no longer be prosecuted and sentences should not be sought for them.

Prosecutors are now also required to explore the consequences of extreme incarceration; effects on housing and employment for inmates once they’re back in the real world, and a host of other common issues that arise with how policing and the law works in America.

In cases where prosecutors do seek to put someone behind bars it can’t be for more than 20 years. Many of the sentences New York City will see going forward will only be for things like homicide and other very serious crimes.
