Voters in San Francisco have chosen to recall embattled District Attorney Chesa Boudin following a recall effort centered on his handling of rising crime across the city.
San Francisco voted to recall Boudin with 61%, compared to 39% who wanted him to stay as the district attorney, according to results at the time the Associated Press called the race.
Boudin was elected in 2019 with 50.8% of the vote and was sworn in as San Francisco’s 29th district attorney on Jan. 8 2020.
It seems they were expecting a tight vote and it was a shock when the results came out. The son of terrorists who managed to do more damage than mom and pop, is now on his way to private service bowing to keep fighting for the “restorative justice” that sunk his city even more while he was in office.
I am always amazed the level of bullshit they are willing to spread in order to maintain power. This is an article I found from March of the current when the recall efforts were in the works:
Mr. Boudin added that the recall campaign had exploited individual tragedies like the story of a Thai grandfather who was fatally attacked last year while taking his morning walk. He also pointed to an increase in media coverage of crime, and especially high-profile videos on social media of shoplifting cases — like one showing a man on a bike stealing from a Walgreens.
“And then people read the story, they see the video, and they perceive crime as being out of control,” Mr. Boudin said. “When in fact things like shoplifting are down dramatically. It doesn’t mean we don’t have a real problem with auto burglaries, but the notion that it’s out of control today and it wasn’t in 2019 is just demonstrably false.”
This is pure British Home Office strategy: If you stop enforcing the law against a crime, victims simply do not bother to call because they know you won’t give a shit. Thus new crimes will not be added to the statistics making you look good because the lying numbers prove you were “right” with your strategies.
