NYC Bodega Worker Acting in Self-Defense Charged with Murder

On Friday night, Austin Simon, 34, was stabbed by a bodega worker inside the Broadway and West 139th Street store.

Video of the stabbing shows Simon pushing the worker, Jose Alba, 51, then confronting him.

As Alba tries to get away, Simon goes after him again, at which point Alba reaches for a knife and stabs the man repeatedly.

He is now being charged with murder in what appears to be a clear case of self-defense.

Alvin Bragg Strikes Again

Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg loves to stick up for thugs, and he is doing it again here.

To fully understand how ludicrous this is, note that Simon was much younger and in far better shape than Alba.

He had jumped the counter to confront Alba for reportedly being rude to his girlfriend.

Simon was overly aggressive to the point that Alba was clearly in fear that he was about to be brutally beaten by this man (you can see the video on the New York Post website).

Alba told his daughter, “It was either him or the guy at the moment.”

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

I have to be honest, watching that video, I would have done the same thing.

The argument reportedly started because Simon’s girlfriend’s EBT card was declined, so Alba took the chips back that her daughter had.

Simon’s girlfriend then knocked over a counter display and ran home to get Simon to tell him that Alba had disrespected her, and Simon returned to the store about 10 minutes later to confront Alba.

Bragg has since charged Alba with murder in a case that appears to be clear self-defense.

Alba appears to have no criminal record, while Simon has eight prior arrests and was on parole for assaulting a police officer after serving prison time in that assault case.

  2. When you are cleared. Get a good lawyer and sue the pants off of Bragg. Then buy a nice house for your family.
    Good luck.

  3. It’s always the criminals who are made the victims instead of the other way around! This is what you get with a “woke” society.

  4. Too bad this idiot isn’t in the gun shot view of this maniac!! It’s tragic when you have someone in power who can’t get it straight that the perpetrator is the one to cage!!!

  5. The people in New York in my opinion are nothing more than idiots and totally ignorant! They always vote for a Dem who has time and time again shown how corrupt they are and always committing Treason and corruption within this State! All of the Left in New York are a joke on society!

  6. THE EXORBITANTLY HIGH BAIL, AND ARREST, ARE PERFECTLY CORRECT AS THIS PERP VIOLATED TWO, YES TWO, LAWS. THE FIRST LAW HE BROKE WAS THE NY CITY, NY STATE VICTIM LAW. WHEN ATTACKED, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO SHUT UP, LAY DOWN, AND GET BEATEN WITHOUT FIGHTING BACK TO SAVE YOUR LIFE. THE SECOND LAW HE BROKE WAS THE CRIMINAL PROTECTION RIGHTS ACT. HE KILLED HIS ATTACKER. LIB/DEMS , OR DEM/LIBS WONT TOLERATE THAT BEHAVIOR . THEY LOST TWO VOTES ; THE DEAD CRIMINALS, AND THE HEROIC GROCERY CLERK’S WHO WILL PROBABLY NEVER VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.

  7. WHAT A LAW IN NEW YORK. LOOK AT AOC TRYING TO IMPEACH THE SUPREME JUDGE THOMAS. WHO SHE
    THINK SHE IS. AN IDIOT, VERY LOW MORAL VALUE. AOC SAID TO MANY WILL DIE . I HOPE SHE ONE OF THEM.
    WITH OMAR AND THALID. . SOME OF THOSE RADICAL JUDGES, LAWYERS AND CORRUPT POLITICIAN SHOULD
    BE REMOVED.

  8. That is NYC for you, no commonsense which indicates the mess they are in and why so many folks are leaving the state.

  9. Good God and I thought Cali was crazy!! NY will try to ruin this man’s life and praise the criminal, self-defense all the way, you are taught to use whatever force is necessary to stop the violent act and it looked as though he did, the criminal stayed on the attack until the last second.

  10. How sure are you that the dead perp isn’t going to continue voting?
