Lucky San Francisco: With Chesa Boudin as DA, good luck getting a cop when you want one

Well, Chesa Boudin has finally done it: he’s gotten himself into the San Francisco D.A.’s seat, after a lifetime of standing up for crooks and mastering criminal “justice” from Bill Ayers’s stepdad berth and Hugo Chávez’s knee.

Like the way criminal justice works in Caracas? In San Francisco, Hugo Chávez’s trusted adviser is now there to help. He’s there to “transform,” as he says. That’s his brand, as the Bay Area tech marketing hipsters say.

This won’t work out too well if you’ve got bums vomiting at your doorstep, gang members shooting with muzzle flashes ’round corners, and junkies setting up camp on your sidewalk. We’ve already seen the boulder-warfare some of the homeowners are putting up in a desperate bid to stop it. Such people can probably now look forward to getting arrested.

Boudin spoke at his election celebration in supposedly conciliatory terms, but if you look closely, he wasn’t conciliatory, and his remarks were very anti-police.

Here’s the San Francisco Chronicle report:

When Chesa Boudin is sworn in as San Francisco’s new district attorney, he said, he will immediately get to work reforming the city’s criminal justice system. Some goals, like ending mass incarceration, will take time. But others, like doing away with gang enhancements and ending money bail, will begin on day one, he said.

Ending mass incarceration on the logic that there are a lot of them in the can puts a lot of thugs out on the streets to prey on the locals. In Chavista Venezuela, that was useful for keeping the street protests down, of course. Boudin uses the more Sorosian argument that the only reason these criminals are in the can is racism, not anything they might have done.

He also says he’s going to end “gang enhancements,” which means extra charges for doing things gang leaders want their gangster peons to do, such as pick off an innocent bystander to prove bona fides. No wonder the Police Officer’s Union called a Chesa D.A.-ship a gangster’s delight. That certainly ends penalties for thugs for “only obeying orders,” as the Nazis at Nuremberg put it. Gang enhancements, said young Chesa, “are explicitly racist.”

His other “transform” initiative is to end money bail for assorted acts of thuggery. Ending money bail will make it even more profitable to commit crimes — and already every thief in San Fran gets a “free” $950 to steal from merchants as it is, given that no one gets busted for anything less. Now there’s no need for cash bail for even those who take more.
