Last Saturday I went down to Ralph’s Meats on Lafayette. The Fort Greene institution had its metal shutters down and a police poster announced that the deli was closed until further notice pursuant to gun and drug charges stemming from a 2012 arrest. I was hoping that the DA might have seen irregularities in the case, but this latest event shows that the City will attempt to prosecute the Mayor of Fort Greene.
AP saw Ralph. He is still out on bail. I hope that he stays free.
Personally I hope it never gets to trial, because Ralph is good people.
