In a jaw-dropping display of what can only be described as insanity running rampant in New York’s justice system, a Brooklyn man, Jean Blain, who took a machete to NYPD officers, wasn’t charged with attempted murder. This lunatic, caught on camera in a frenzy, hacking away at the officers, somehow didn’t meet the grand jury’s bar for an attempted murder indictment. This decision not only defies logic but slaps every law-abiding citizen and officer in the face with the cold, hard reality of our broken system.
Jean Blain, 40, known for his erratic behavior and a rap sheet that reads like a crime novel, was clearly out for blood on Jan. 22. NYPD officers, responding to a call about Blain’s disturbing behavior, found themselves in a life-threatening situation when Blain, hiding a machete, launched an attack, slashing and hacking in a scene straight out of a horror movie. Yet, despite the clear intent to kill or seriously harm, this maniac was spared the charge that should have been a slam dunk – attempted murder.
Why? Because the grand jury bought into the excuse of Blain’s supposed mental instability. This is the same guy who, in a previous episode of his crime spree, allegedly flashed women in Times Square and stole a neighbor’s car. And let’s not forget the victim just three blocks away, Giovanty Guinea, who Blain slashed in an unprovoked attack, nearly killing him. Guinea’s plea for justice echoes in the ears of a city that seems to have turned its back on the very people it’s supposed to protect.
Vincent Vallelong, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, hit the nail on the head when he said, “This unbalanced justice system has created an unprecedented dangerous environment.” If Blain’s machete had been sharper, we might be mourning the loss of brave officers today. And yet, here we are, with a grand jury that couldn’t find it within themselves to charge a man who tried to chop officers to pieces with attempted murder.
What’s it going to take for New York City’s officials to wake up? How many more officers and citizens must be put in harm’s way before they realize that coddling criminals and throwing excuses at them isn’t the answer? The message being sent is clear: in New York, you can attack police officers with a machete and not face the full consequences of your actions. This isn’t just a failure of the justice system; it’s a blatant disregard for the safety of those sworn to protect us and the public at large.

The irony is bitter – just days after this incident, a mob of illegal aliens attacked NYPD officers, only to be released without bail. It seems the city’s priorities are all twisted, favoring criminals over those who serve and protect. New York City, under the current leadership, has become a haven for lawlessness, where criminals roam free, and the law-abiding live in fear. It’s high time for a drastic change, and it starts with holding criminals like Jean Blain accountable for their heinous actions. Enough is enough.
