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.”
