NYC bodega worker in Rikers on murder charge after stabbing attacker in self-defense

quote:

A hard-working Manhattan bodega clerk who was forced to grab a knife to fend off a violent ex-con, now finds himself sitting behind bars at the notorious Rikers Island jail charged with murder and unable to post $250,000 bail.

The sky-high bail for Jose Alba — who has no known criminal history — was just half of what controversial Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office demanded, despite surveillance video showing the clerk being assaulted by his alleged victim in the bodega.

Alba, 51, was charged with the fatal stabbing of Austin Simon, 35, who can be seen storming behind the counter at the Hamilton Heights Grocery on Broadway and West 139th Street to attack the store worker Friday night.

“It was either him or the guy at the moment,” Alba’s daughter Yulissa told The Post Wednesday, saying it was a case of self-defense.

“He’s never hurt anybody. He’s never had an altercation where he had to defend himself. This is the first time for him.”

Germans but hope that owner gets off. We’ll see how smart or dumb the citizens are at his trial

It's a message board, wiseass. I'm not here to break news. I'm here to discuss what's going on in the country.

A hardworking citizen is in Rikers Island on a $250,000 bail for self-defense.

I wouldn't mind if this gets repeated every day

It's not on the first page so it should get a pass. But it went quite a few pages a few days ago inevitably leading to a few idiots defending the DA.

I saw the video and I don’t get it. Why was he arrested?

The guy wasn’t excessive.

The question is, did he stop when the threat was neutralized or did he keep going.

If you shoot someone twice and they’re still alive but neutralized, you don’t put a third in their head to finish them off. That would then be considered murder.

ETA: Active Self Protection has mentioned this a couple of times.
