New San Fran DA To Toss Gun & Drug Charges That Stem From Legit Traffic Stops

Newly elected DA, Chesa Boudin, "is the son of two cop killers and had never prosecuted a criminal case in his life before he became the district attorney of crime-ridden San Francisco."

IMO San Francisco totally deserves the consequences of this loser's new policies...they elected him! Show me any elected official in San Francisco who doesn't coddle the criminals and the homeless. This is why this once beautiful city is now a cesspool. Oh well, this is just another reason to avoid San Francisco like the plague.


Notoriously anti-police San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced a host of criminal justice reforms on Friday that will, among other things, allow gun-toting criminals to stay on the streets.



...if officers find a gun or drugs inside a vehicle while conducting a traffic stop for a vehicle violation, for example, the district attorney’s office won’t charge the person for the illegal gun or drugs, KTVU reported.



"In his short tenure, Chesa Boudin has demonstrated that he is a clear and present danger to the law-abiding residents, businesses and visitors of San Francisco,” San Francisco Police Officer's Association President Tony Montoya said. “Get pulled over and have an illegal handgun or AR-15? No problem, Boudin will throw your case out. Have 10 pounds of Meth all in small plastic bags ready for sale? No problem, Boudin will toss that case too.”

“It’s unconscionable that Boudin would let someone with an illegal gun go free, only to allow them the opportunity to arm themselves again. Chesa Boudin is emboldening criminals and we are all going to pay a steep price for his absurd policies,” Montoya added.

Wow, never read about this guy before.

Chesa Boudin - Wikipedia

When Boudin was 14 months old, his parents were arrested for murder in their role as getaway car drivers in the Brink's robbery of 1981 in Rockland County, New York.[1][3] His mother was sentenced to 20 years to life[4] and his father to 75 years to life for the felony murders of two police officers and a security guard.[5] After his parents were incarcerated, Boudin was raised in Chicago by adoptive parents Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who, like his parents, had been members of the Weather Underground.


Before law school, Boudin traveled to Venezuela and served as a translator in the administration of then-president Hugo Chávez.


Born the son of cop killers and raised by Ayers who brags about how he got away with crimes. It stands to reason he's pro-criminal. If he's of the same mindset as Ayers, he'd view his work as a slow takeover of the government by taking over the schools and legal system.

This guy should be praised as a true civil rights advocate.

If a cop lawfully pulls you over for a broken break light, then they should just give you your ticket and politely send you on your way. They have no moral right to abuse there power by using the traffic stop as an excuse to harass and fish for a more serious crime.

In the race to the bottom of the barrel between San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland, San Francisco is winning. Hell, they're sprinting there.

So should New York's governor Andrew Cuomo. His bail reform law is being praised by many career criminals. It gives them an opportunity to go right back on the streets and commit more crimes, as quickly as possible.



IMO, if a cop sees an illegal gun in plain sight, or bags of drugs inside your car, they have a moral obligation to arrest you in order to protect the general public. If someone thinks this is "abuse," then they should pack their bags and move to San Francisco, so they can enjoy the consequences of this DA's asinine policy.

Looks like San fran doesn't want to prove its criminals are the ones creating problems with firearms.

If your not going to charge someone with a crime to avoid statistics that prove liberal lunacy, wtf are you doing as prosecutor for the d.a.?

It's all fun and games till a buisness owner files a lawsuit against the city for not protecting their taxpayers, as well as the tax payers income streams.


How can this even be legal? Your job is literally to prosecute criminals, not to pick and choose who has what laws held to them.

Sounds like all federal funding should be suspended until they actively attempt to protects its citizens.

After all as a citizen, you are an American , with constitutional rights.

If those rights are being violated, you should have protection, as well as representation against those who attempt to usurp them.

Off to a great start. Here's his accomplishment for today.


www.sfgate.com...

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is dropping charges against one of the two suspects arrested in connection to a shocking viral video that shows an Asian man being robbed.
Twenty-year-old Dwayne Grayson, who police say recorded and uploaded the disturbing clip to social media, will no longer be charged with elder abuse and battery, and will instead face "restorative justice," which involves rehabilitation and reconciliation with victims.

They're super serious about preventing gun violence though, ya know...

These people are so #ing fake it's unreal. Like Obama, we need gun control, but lemme commute all the sentences of these guys with illegal gun convictions.

They had the House and the Senate and Obama and they didn't pass any gun control. They don't want that "problem" to go away because it gets cheap, easy votes from gullible idiots who think they really give a # about victims.

Yeah, if they just happen to see it in plain sight well conducting a minor traffic violation, its obviously fair enough.

But a lot of police use things like traffic violations as justification to actively profile, discriminate and harass people in the hopes they might get an easy bust under there belt, which is definitely an abuse of power and goes against the whole philosophy of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

If they have direct proof of probable cause, then by all means investigate... But they shouldn't be rewarded for trying to create an issue where there was none to begin with.

Interesting, his parents and the people (Ayers) that raised him after his parents incarceration were members of a FBI classified terrorist group WUO


The Weather Underground Organization (WUO), commonly known as the Weather Underground, was a radical left militant organization active in the late 1960s and 1970s, founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan. It was originally called Weatherman and later became known colloquially as the Weathermen. The WUO organized in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)[2] largely composed of the national office leadership of SDS and their supporters. Beginning in 1974, the organization's express political goal was to create a revolutionary party to overthrow what it viewed as American imperialism.



Boudin didn't finish law school until 2011 and didn't start working as a Public Defender until 2015, LOL. This guy screams Gov plant like no tomorrow.

SF deserves everything they're getting and going to get. Go Pelosi, you're setting such a great example for all other liberal cities to follow.

Some more info on the Boudin.

Before law school, Boudin traveled to Venezuela and served as a translator in the administration of then-president Hugo Chávez.[13] After law school, from 2011 to 2012, Boudin served as a law clerk to M. Margaret McKeown on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.[14] He was a 2012–2013 Liman Fellow at the San Francisco Public Defender's Office,[15] and in 2013 and 2014, he served as a clerk to Charles Breyer on the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.[16] In 2015, Boudin began working full time at the San Francisco Public Defender's Office as a deputy public defender.[17] While there, he argued on behalf of the office's clients that California's bail system is unconstitutional, leading to the landmark decision In re Kenneth Humphrey, in which the state's First District Court of Appeals held that judges must give consideration to a defendant's ability to pay before setting bail.[18] Boudin also serves on the board of the Civil Rights Corps,[19] a national non-profit organization, and is on the board of Restore Justice, a non-profit based in California.[

If those things are in plain sight..sure. If the broken tailight is an excuse to tear the car apart on a fishing expedition.. no.

"Legit traffic stop" is a pretty interpretal phrase. Unfortunately only one side of the story interprets. I've been pulled over for not using a turn signal (video evidence proved this wrong) and then was searched without consent. Found a drug bag... Yeah turned out to be a candy wrapper. He smashed the speakers in my car to look for weed. What a damn crime. Just got off work. I was wearing a damn tie. Needless to say the charges were dropped. At great expense to me. Oh, and who paid his lawyer? Yeah, my taxes.

The people of San Francisco deserve better. Because they've been betrayed by idiots like this. As much as I don't like the way the west coast works, I'm not in line with throwing them away.

So who is electing and appointing all the idiots? We the people have no one but ourselves to blame for electing these clowns to office, SF seems to be drowning in them.

Its simple...arrest them for the original violation hold them on suspicion due to the visual indicators ...then don't do an illegal search....get a Warrant legally search the vehicle and seize evidence if it exists....if you cannot get a warrant they walk with a ticket,you lick your wounds make a note of them and move on.

Anyone dumb enough to leave things in view of someone just looking in to a vehicle deserves to be legally investigated but no cop should ever illegally make entry into your vehicle or illegally order you to give acess or to exit your vehicle.

Stop the illegal searches and cops have to do their jobs of actually investigating and stopping crimes instead of utilising the traffic stop Vegas style gambles that they have learned pay off for them big time.....of course these tactics pay off this is why we have LAW AGAINST USING SAID TACTICS which LEO has been breaching in an escalating SOP manner now for about 100 years.

High speed chases should NEVER HAPPEN and the resulting shootouts should NEVER HAPPEN...all vehicles run out of gas.....we have helicopters and radios and drones and there is no justifiable reason to risk the publics well being just to effect an arrest....even of a suspected murderer...and no more shooting people in the head for trying to drive away....just get the hell out of their way....and yes idiots even if the suspect rams your car and is still trying to evade you and custody but has not shown a gun or shoot at you YOU CAN NOT EXECUTE THEM WITH YOUR WEAPON....morons....you have to let them go....this isn't Somalia...right?

There is so much I want to say to you right now but as this isn't the mud-pit I'll refrain. I will say that people like this AND people that defend these types of views make my stomach turn. Covid-19 has nothing on these people when it comes to being a deadly virus to the good citizens of America.
