The young millenials that put Chesa into office will get the sort of government and city they deserve.

As of this weekend, the City by the Bay has a new, incoming District Attorney. Chesa Boudin ran on a social justice platform that’s pretty far to the left, even by San Francisco standards. And now that he’s taking charge, the police are going to have a lot less work clogging up their schedules. That’s because Boudin plans to “decriminalize” a whole raft of lower-level crimes. These include public urination, camping on the sidewalks and peeing in public. (Daily Caller)

Chesa Boudin, the urine-and-feces-plagued city’s incoming district attorney, pledged during the campaign not to prosecute public urination and other quality-of-life crimes if he was elected. Boudin declared victory Saturday night after results showed him winning a plurality of votes in the DA race.


“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted,” Boudin vowed in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) questionnaire during the campaign.


“Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted, we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness,” he lamented.

 

 

Yes, this is all part of what’s become commonly known on the left as “decriminalizing poverty.” The obvious flaw in that concept comes with the fact that it’s not illegal to be poor anywhere in this country. There are no laws against poverty nor any fines or imprisonment associated with the condition of being poor. There are, however, laws against certain activities most commonly observed among the homeless.


So under this emerging theory of social justice, activities previously considered destructive or even posing a danger to public health are to be ignored rather than running the risk of appearing to go too hard on homeless people. Keep in mind the fact that the city is already facing a public health crisis from public urination and defecation to the point where they have had to divert resources to public “poop patrols” assigned to clean up the mess.


As far as the prostitution arrests go, I don’t personally have a problem with the idea. I’ve long felt that prostitution itself shouldn’t be considered a criminal act in a free capitalist society. The trafficking of women, and particularly children, should still carry serious penalties, but what people choose to do with their own bodies is their business.


But none of this gets the meat of the whole “decriminalization” idea. If you think that certain crimes should no longer be classified as such or perhaps carry more minor penalties, then fine. Work with your local legislators and have the laws changed. But the job of a District Attorney is to enforce the laws as they exist, not as he or she might wish they existed. When you become the District Attorney, you take an oath to uphold the law. San Francisco has just elected a person who ran on a promise to violate his oath before he even got into office.

 

 

Just saying .. his election is a bigger deal than any of you seem to think.

Thought San Francisco’s Quality Of Life Couldn’t Get Worse? Think Again


by Kerry Jackson


San Francisco garnered national headlines with the election of its new district attorney, a progressive, which means there will be zero progress made in the homelessness crisis, and little if any made toward reducing crime in the city and county.


Chesa Boudin, a one-time deputy public defender who has never tried a case, was elected in a close race, and will assume office in January. Before he had a chance to decide if the new drapes in his office were going to be socialist red or blue state blue, Boudin announced that he would not prosecute quality-of-life crimes such as “public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc.” We assume public defecating on streets and sidewalks, today’s San Francisco “treat,” will also go unprosecuted.

 

There’s no other way to take Boudin’s statement than as a warning that the quality of life in the city is going to decline. If those crimes aren’t prosecuted, they will increase, and as they do, the living conditions will slip.


Doug Wyllie, a San Francisco resident who trains law enforcement officers, said in an interview that those crimes have largely gone unprosecuted and unenforced for about 10 years. Boudin’s statement, however, codified the practices “essentially as policy.”


Although he said he is reluctant about “predicting the future,” he’s convinced the city “will get worse in the next 10 years.”


It’s no leap to believe that other crimes will grow, as well. Though now a prosecutor, the former public defender’s future appears to be one long irreconcilable conflict with law enforcement. At Boudin’s election night party, Sandra Lee Fewer, a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, lifted her middle finger in the air and lead the crowd in a riotous “f*ck the POA (Police Officers Association)” chant. Boudin has not distanced himself from the hate, explaining it away as “an expression of the frustration that so many San Franciscans … feel with the POA’s electioneering.”


Though identified as a progressive, Boudin is much more — less, really — than that. Predictably, and not necessarily inappropriately, he’s been called a red diaper baby. His parents, Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, were members of the Weather Underground, a domestic terrorist group, according to the FBI, responsible for multiple bombings and the murders of two policemen and an armored-car driver in Nanuet, New York, during a 1981 robbery gone bad.


Boudin learned of his election while flying back to California from New York after visiting his father in prison, who is serving what amounts to a life sentence at the Wende Correctional Facility east of Buffalo. Kathy Boudin was released after 22 years in prison for her role in the crimes. Boudin himself was 14 months old at the time of the murders. He had been dropped off at a babysitter.


Because his parents were sent to prison when he was a child, Boudin grew up with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. The couple are unrepentant Weather Underground members who went into hiding in 1970 after a bomb intended to kill army officers at a dance in New Jersey instead blew up a townhome in New York’s Greenwich Village.


They turned themselves in a decade later, but “were never prosecuted for their involvement with the 25 bombings the Weather Underground claimed,” according to Politico. Boudin role model Ayers, now a university professor, is famous for saying “guilty as sin, free as a bird,” when he learned he and Dohrn were going to avoid justice.


Rather than the sob story of a kid who had to grow up without parents, his is a tale of extremist and revolutionary connections that run deep. Uncle Louis Boudin was a Marxist theoretician. Grandaddy Leonard Boudin was a lawyer who represented Fidel Castro.


Can there possibly be more? Of course there is. Before he went to law school at Yale, Boudin went to Venezuela, where he was a translator for Hugo Chavez’s regime. “Understanding the Bolivarian Revolution: Hugo Chávez Speaks” made it into English thanks to Boudin’s translation talents.


Boudin also authored “The Venezuelan Revolution: 100 Questions-100 Answers,” as well as “Gringo: A Coming Of Age In Latin America,” and “Letters From Young Activists: Today’s Rebels Speak Out.”


All of this is well-documented old news. It’s no accident that San Francisco got exactly what it wanted for now: a radical prosecutor. The regrets will come later.

 

 

Coming to a city near you ... unless you vote against these communists.   Just saying ...

San Fransisco has a 1.5 % unemployment rate. 

That's because you have to make 50gs a year to afford to be homeless there.

San Francisco's district attorney is proposing creating an auto-burglary-assistance fund that would reimburse residents for the cost required to repair shattered windows from break-ins.


The DA, Chesa Boudin, is proposing using $1.5 million from the mayor's office to fill the fund. If it passes, it could be the country's first fund of this kind.


"Auto burglaries are the No. 1 way people in San Francisco are directly impacted by crime," Boudin said in the San Francisco Chronicle. "While we know there's more work to do, this is something we can do today to step up and support victims."


The city has been experiencing an epidemic of car break-ins in recent years. In 2019, 25,677 people reported car break-ins, according to data from the San Francisco Police Department. The police department only makes arrests in about 1% of cases.


Unsuspecting tourists often are victims of such crimes, leaving valuables inside cars and parking on the street, as the Chronicle notes. But the DA's office estimated that nearly 9,000 residents were hit with smashed windows in 2019. This new fund would only be a resource for residents, not tourists or rental car companies, as ABC 7 News reports.

 


This is a fascinating article and teach one a lot about the left and the leftist media.


Because first, Communist Chelsea Boudin, son of two convicted Weatherman murderers, who was cared for by Communist Weathermen William Ayers and his terrorists wife, Bernadine Dohrn because his parents were in jail, is soft on crime.  He ran on a platform of decriminalizing many crimes … especially *petty* crimes like … well … breaking car windows.


Second, the article fails to mention that the increase in broken car windows is because the democRATS already passed (in 2014) a referendum (Prop 47) that raised the dollar amount (to $950) for non-violent crimes to be considered a felony, instead of a misdemeaner.    Breaking a car window and stealing what’s inside the car is often below that limit so that led to a rash of of property crimes … so many that San Francisco now has the highest rate of property crime in the nation.    A socialist paradise.     How do you think San Francisco’s many drug addicts (something that Chelsea wants to decriminalize by the way) pay for their drugs?


Finally, rather than fix the problem, Boudin simply wants to put his hand in taxpayer pockets and pay the victims (as long as their residents who might vote for him in the future).  To hell with tourists and rental car companies ... which in the long run will hurt the cities economy.   Boudin is doing this to stop the complaining by potential democRAT voters.
