OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the trial court ameliorated any prejudice to the defendant from the prosecutor's safe streets argument: "Although we agree that, in closing, the prosecutor bordered on making an improper 'safe streets' argument by suggesting that the community needs to be protected from violent crime such as that perpetrated by defendant . . . we find that County Court's appropriate response to defense counsel's objections ameliorated any prejudice to defendant [citations omitted].
