Widow of Slain NYPD Officer Jason Rivera Calls Out Progressive DA Alvin Bragg in Moving Eulogy

Widow of Slain NYPD Officer Jason Rivera Calls Out Progressive DA Alvin Bragg in Moving Eulogy

“We are not safe anymore, not even the members of the service. I know you were tired of these laws, especially the ones from the new DA.”

Dominique Luzuriaga, the widow of Jason Rivera, the NYPD officer who was shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance call last week, gave an emotional eulogy for her slain husband on Friday.

She used the opportunity to call out the new Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is cut from the same political cloth as other progressive DAs now coming under increasing public scrutiny.

Luzuriaga spoke for millions of Americans. The public’s patience on this issue is gone.

Gabrielle Fonrouge reports at the New York Post:

Widow of NYPD Officer Jason Rivera blasts Alvin Bragg in moving eulogy

The widow of slain NYPD officer Jason Rivera ripped Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in her husband’s eulogy at his funeral Friday morning, as she described the gut-wrenching moment she found out he’d been killed.

“Although you won’t be here anymore, I want you to live through me. This system continues to fail us. We are not safe anymore, not even the members of the service. I know you were tired of these laws, especially the ones from the new DA. I hope he’s watching you speak through me right now,” Dominique Luzuriaga told mourners at St. Patrick’s Cathedral as they gave her a standing ovation.

“I’m sure all of our blue family is tired too. But I promise, we promise, that your death won’t be in vain.”

As Luzuriaga delivered the emotionally charged remarks, Bragg was in the audience listening, law enforcement sources said. He also attended Rivera’s wake Thursday night but his family walked into the back so they didn’t have to sit with him and later in the evening, someone told the embattled DA that the family wouldn’t be coming out until he left.

Watch this video to the end. When she makes the comments about Bragg, she actually gets applause:

New York Governor Kathy Hochul was at the service and heard this message loud and clear.

CBS News in New York reports:

Gov. Kathy Hochul said hearing the young widow’s comments about the criminal justice system brought her to tears.

“It’s heartbreaking to see the riveting pain that young widow was experiencing,” Hochul said.

Bragg’s attitude toward crime and his memo outlining prosecutorial policies, such as not seeking pre-trial detention except for the most violent cases, is of such great concern to the governor that, despite the funeral and winter storm bearing down on New York, she met with Bragg to discuss the need for the prosecutor to address public safety concerns.

“We need to do more to protect public safety. We need alignment with our men and women in uniform because they’re out there putting their lives on the line to keep us safe,” Hochul said.

The men and women of the NYPD made sure that people know how serious this is by their sheer numbers in attendance.

Someone should call out that asshole DA. It’s a shame that it’s left to the widow of the slain officer to do it.

    That DA is who the voters picked.

      Well, every Democrat in NYC voted for him

      Many dead Republicans voted for him

      The Jewish Insider endorsed him

      Asian-American leaders endorsed him

      Every black from from California to the New York island—from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters endorsed him.

      Soros paid for him to be endored.

      The NYC mayor stands firmly behind him.

      But because of his lenient policies toward crime, Blue Lives are in danger. Two have died so far. And the poor widow of one on the dead police officers has to call out the DA at her husband’s funeral. And as a result—nothing will change.

I have read some pretty vile comments about this 22-year-old man. on other sites. All from dirtbags that never served or even did a ride-along. Those people make me sick. This man is DEAD and you think your piss poor ideology has a place?

I individually support this PO and widow, but, it’s time for the Blue to say no, say no to enforcing every draconian law and edit, to not stand by as Antifa thugs beat old white people and Burn down cities, it’s time to not arrest children in restaurants for not wearing masks, be the hero this young officer was…
Otherwise, I imagine they would pack us in the cattle cars…cause… just following orders…

    Judging by what the parents of some of my school-mates had to say, it will be the cops who herd the undesirables into the cattle cars because they did in Europe in the last century.

    As for doing right, they weigh the choice: pension, qualified immunity, carry privilege in communities where it is denied the peasantry, steady pay check or…. doing what is right and proper and moral.

“despite the funeral and winter storm bearing down on New York, she met with Bragg to discuss the need for the prosecutor to address public safety concerns.”

That’s her job

NYPD hasn’t had any issue with enforcing every ludicrous overreach, from harassing people in their homes to removing small children from restaurants for not presenting their papers. Their union has supported every Democrat in existence for decades.

They can screw themselves. Enjoy working for the party YOU and YOUR UNION have supported this entire time.

I’m not lifting a finger to help them until they acknowledge WHO and WHAT PARTY is exclusively causing their problems.

I would hazard to guess that there enough open LEO positions across this country that every NYPD officer that resigned today could find a job very quickly

    Of course, once you’ve peed in the soup too many times, other restaurants that are hiring may still decide not to hire you.

    That’s all well and good. But will the citizenry in those other towns want to New York attitude from the police? Has pointed out by other comment makers, you’re the first one horse Ludacris edicts and Walls rather than showing some common sense. We’re ion charge, I wouldn’t want to New York cop within 50 miles of my department.
