Arizona Prosecutor Refuses to Extradite Suspected Killer to NY: Doesn't Trust Bragg to Prosecute

Day by day, it seems like the divisions in our country get more and more stark. In another example of the growing differences in red vs. blue regions, Maricopa County Attorney General Rachel Mitchell is refusing to extradite a suspected murderer to New York, stating that she does not trust Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to prosecute the accused killer.

At a Wednesday press briefing, Maricopa County Attorney General Rachel Mitchell said she would not release 26-year-old Raad Almansoori to authorities in New York City, saying it is safer for the general public to keep him locked up in Arizona rather than risk him being potentially let go under Bragg.

Almansoori, whom Mitchell labeled as “dangerous and violent,” is wanted by the NYPD for the horrific killing of 38-year-old Denisse Oleas-Arancibia, a mother of two who was found dead inside the SoHo 54 Hotel on Watts Street on Feb. 8. Police say she was killed by a suspect who beat her over the head with an iron, and bits of plastic from the appliance were found embedded in her skull.

Almansoori was arrested by police in Arizona earlier this week after police say he stabbed two women there — he tried to rape one of them in a McDonald’s restroom at gunpoint. He was out on bail at the time of Oleas-Arancibia’s slaying on charges that he kidnapped another sex worker and sexually assaulted her in Sumter County, Florida, in 2023.

Rachel Mitchell, in her statement, made it very plain that it was the prosecutors, not the police force, that she lacked faith in to do their jobs.

“I know there’s been a discussion about New York wanting to extradite this individual and this is not aimed at the New York Police Department at all,” Mitchell said. “I know they did a hard job, a good job, but we will not be agreeing to extradition.”

“I’ve instructed my extradition attorneys not to agree to that. We’re going to keep him here, these are mandatory prison sentences.”

“And having observed the treatment of violent criminals in the New York area by the Manhattan D.A. there, Alvin Bragg, I think it’s safer to keep him here and keep him in custody so that he cannot be out and doing this to individuals either in our state or county or anywhere in the United States.”

It’s a small wonder that crime is spiking in our major cities when even the District Attorneys in some major jurisdictions aren’t trusted by their counterparts in more sane areas; even worse, in the case of Alvin Bragg, he seems to richly deserve this distrust.

America’s major cities are suffering. Liberal mayors, district attorneys, and prosecutors refuse to do their jobs; blue-state legislatures redefine crimes down to minor infractions. 

Ordinary, productive folks are fleeing, and now it’s gotten to the point that Attorney Generals in saner jurisdictions would rather handle thugs in their courts because they don’t trust blue-city officials. That lack of trust may well prove to be ruinous.

Get out of the cities!
