Breaking: Manhattan DA Drops Murder Charge against Bodega Worker Who Fatally Stabbed Attacker

Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg on Tuesday dropped all charges against bodega clerk Jose Alba who was allegedly acting in self-defense when he fatally stabbed a man who was attacking him.

The liberal DA's decision comes after weeks of criticism of Bragg’s decision to send the 61-year-old to Riker’s Island and charge him with second-degree murder in the death of 35-year-old Austin Simon.

Video obtained by the New York Post seems to show Simon advancing on Alba at the bodega where Alba works and violently shoving him against a wall after his girlfriend’s credit card was rejected while trying to buy a bag of chips. A struggle between the two men ensued and Alba stabbed Simon repeatedly. He also sustained a knife wound himself.
