Boudin has been a deputy public defender in the city for six years. He is the son of two Weather Underground terrorists who were imprisoned for a robbery in which three people and two police officers were murdered.
He has vowed not to prosecute first time DUI’s, not seek maximum sentencing for murder, and for general “Decarceration”. His express goal is “criminal justice reform” and to prosecute more cops.
God help the normal people who are left in that city. My recent visits to The City have consisted of taking a ferry to the Giants game, but even that will likely be suspended just on principle now.

That sounds exactly like a George Soros backed stooge. The same exact thing happened with the election of Larry Krasner in Philadelphia. And now Jack Stollsteimer was just elected DA of Delaware County in Pennsylvania. His positions are nearly identical to Krasner's and this douchebag in San Francisco. The Pennsylvania douchebags got a lot of money from Soros and have been an absolute disgrace for Pennsylvania.

Well those people elected him. The place will go from bad to worse, perhaps seeing this happen before their eyes will wake some people up. Could be a good thing in the long run. This new DA was raised by Bernadette Dohrn, a full on communist and police hater. I go into that city occasionally and always feel somewhat lucky that nothing happened during my trip.

Not sure it’s all that much of a change from what actually goes on in the DA’s office now or over the last few decades. This guy is just upfront and honest about having a revolving door at the jail. His life story is red meat for those of us who are sane but it’s not like there’s any real law and order in SF now. The only real difference is it’s going to be open season on law enforcement if there’s any question of misconduct. SFPD should quit en masse. Lateral to wherever they can. If the leftists in SF want the Wild West let them have it. I’d carry to work sans permit but I know the lack of prosecution won’t cover me in that instance. It’s time for the dipshit progressives to get what they’re asking for when BART becomes a full scale commute for every criminal in the Bay to practice their craft in San FranThunderDome.

I'm pretty sure God has written San Francisco off.
"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system,,,, but too early to shoot the bastards." -- Claire Wolfe The dominant media is no more "mainstream" than leftists are liberals.
I’ve been following this because my wife happened to know his mother, Kathy Boudin, from high school days when they were at a summer NSF science program together. Kathy taught my wife how to play folk guitar. She (Kathy) had just returned from a (illegal) trip to Cuba. Later Kathy was in the Weather Underground, was involve in the robbery and felony murder in a Brink’s heist. Went to prison, then got her reward as an adjunct professor at Columbia. Her dad, Leonard Boudin, was a rich and famous lawyer who defended Communists, because he was one.
This dude, Chesa, is not like your run-of-the-mill leftists. If he’s like the rest of his family, and he gives every reason to think so, he won’t stop at lawbreaking. And if California doesn’t change, he’ll follow Kamala Harris’ route and end up in state office, then the Senate.

In some ways, this is more of the same. When Hallinan became DA in the mid-90's, it ushered in a more lefty camp rooted in 70's era activism. Harris followed and earned the ire of the SFPD when she refused to seek the death penalty on a cop killer; Gascon some people thought would return things back to center having been the former police chief...not so much. The other contender in this election was equally nutty Suzy Loftus, who served as the interim DA after Gascon stepped down.
Now this clown Boudin, spawn of the 70's era, allegedly different from his parents as he's now 'part of the system'. Weather Underground conducted a number of bombings in SF during the bloody 70's, a number of SFPD officers were killed, I'm sure the union meetings will be lively. Where Boudin came from SF Public Defender, is replete with extreme lefties to include Matt Gonzales and Jeff Adachi. His acceptance speech emphasizes talk about 'mending division' between police and the public There's no issues in SF and it's PD, they've been effectively neutered for decades now, the worse thing to happen, has been a few poor taste videos and text messages between cops that got 'leaked'.

It's mother is Kathy Boudin? Yuck. Her history was in an article in National Review. I wrote a letter to the ST of NY Parole Board urging the denial of her parole. Pray for justice and clean your gear.
