The District Attorneys in the United States, many funded by billionaire George Soros, are at the center of many of the issues facing this nation.
They have decided what laws to enforce and which not to, often based on skin color and economic standing.
And one such District Attorney, Diana Becton, has gone so far as to call for police to determine a suspect’s need when looting.
In other words if a suspect is poor and in need of a new flat screen television police should not arrest them and she will not prosecute them, RedState reported.
Last week we brought you the story of Nichelle Holmes, a Deputy District Attorney in California who made social media posts proclaiming “We want more than a citation for vandalism” for the couple who painted over a Black Lives Matter mural in her jurisdiction. The office has now charged the couple with a “hate crime.”
Holmes’ boss, Diana Becton, is in her first term as elected District Attorney, one of a number of district attorneys heavily supported by lefty billionaire George Soros. Sources tell RedState that as soon as Becton took over she implemented major changes in the way the office was run and in the way crimes were charged and how aggressively cases were prosecuted. One recent change, which I’ll address further in a moment, has to do with charging people for “looting,” which is basically stealing during a state of emergency (i.e., protests or riots).
Becton is BFF’s with St. Louis’ Kim Gardner and Chicago’s Kim Foxx, who’ve been in the news for their terrible policies. This week she co-authored a Politico op-ed with Gardner, Foxx, and two other Soros-funded DA’s explaining their philosophy and 11-point plan for further ruining America’s cities.
“Our criminal legal system was constructed to control Black people and people of color,” the DA’s said in the piece.
“Its injustices are not new but are deeply rooted in our country’s shameful history of slavery and legacy of racial violence. The system is acting exactly as it was intended to, and that is the problem.”
“We should know: We’re Black, we’re female, and we’re prosecutors. We work as the gatekeepers in this flawed system. And we have some ideas for how to fix it,” they said.
Yes they are the gatekeepers and that is terrifying. Not because they are black, or female, but for the fact that they appear to believe black people should not be prosecuted the same as white people.
Take Kim Foxx as an example. With overwhelming evidence against actor Jussie Smollett for faking a hate crime she dismissed the charges.
“The decisions that prosecutors make can either work to rectify the inherent harms in the legal system or perpetuate them,” they said.
“Part of our responsibility, as elected public servants, is to be self-aware and recognize that we are part of the problem.
“It is our moral and ethical duty to start advancing racial equity-minded policies—and community advocates and voters should hold us accountable for doing so.
“Working from within, we have begun the steps to rectify past wrongs. We are implementing policies that include declining to prosecute minor offenses, overturning wrongful convictions, refusing to take cases from officers with a history of racial bias and expunging marijuana convictions.
“And we are currently working within our own offices to make the system fairer and more just,” they said.
If that sounds like legal mumbo jumbo here is my translation. They are simply going to not prosecute certain crimes so that criminals may continue to do them unimpeded. And they will use skin color as a judge of what crimes to prosecute.
Becton, the Contra Costa County DA, is already putting “racial equity-minded policies” in place and enforcing them in her office. The following “Looting Guidelines” document was provided to RedState by a confidential source and verified as authentic by a separate source familiar with the office’s policies.
“Was this theft offense substantially motivated by the state of emergency, or simply a theft offense which occurred contemporaneous to the declared state of emergency?” the document said.
It then lists “factors to consider in making this determination” which include the following.
“Was the target business open or closed to the public during the state of emergency?
“What was the manner and means by which the suspect gained entry to the target business? What was the nature/quantity/value of the goods targeted?
“Was the theft committed for financial gain or personal need?
“Is there an articulable reason why another statute wouldn’t adequately address the particular incident?”
“Was this theft offense substantially motivated by the state of emergency, or simply a theft offense which occurred contemporaneous to the declared state of emergency?
How do any of those factors help the business owner whose property was stolen? Since when is it OK to steal provided certain conditions are met?
This is sheer lunacy on display. Criminals allowed to run wild because they have a certain skin color or financial need.
Soros is backing the District Attorneys for whatever reason but the voters should take notice and vote for District Attorneys who will not enable thugs.
