Or maybe not.
Digging further into his plans reveals some truly radical proposals. First, Bragg will immediately begin de-prosecuting certain offenses, refusing to punish violations of duly enacted criminal laws. These include resisting arrest, trespassing, fare evasion, marijuana possession, driving with a suspended license and any traffic violation.
For those offenses that are prosecuted, Bragg announced plans to allow just about every offender to walk free the same day. “Non-incarceration is the outcome for every case, except those with charges of homicide or the death of a victim, a class-B violent felony in which a deadly weapon causes serious physical injury or felony sex offenses,” his campaign materials read. Will offenders who shoot at people and miss, armed robbers who display a gun but don’t fire it, drug dealers and felons in possession of firearms all be released the same day they are arrested?
How can that backfire? Certainly decriminalizing resisting arrest won’t lead to more people…resisting arrest. How did a lot of the blacks who have been shot end up dead? They were resisting arrest. I am sure that encouraging people to resist arrest won’t a) result in more injuries to cops, making a dangerous job more dangerous and b) won’t result in more violent escalations that end up with serious injury or death. Refusing to punish people for traffic violations? Welcome to the Road Warrior meets Escape From New York. These are all crimes that lead to other, worse crimes but the new D.A. doesn’t seem to care about that.
Making it less safe for people to live in affluent and very expensive urban areas is working well around the country.
Almost half of San Francisco residents are planning on moving out of the city due to rising crime and a deteriorating quality of life, according to a recent poll.
The poll of 500 San Franciscans, commissioned by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, showed that just over 40% of residents plan to move out of the city in the next few years.
Additionally, 8 out of 10 people polled said crime has increased in the city, and almost 90% of those polled said they believe that the homeless crisis has gotten worse. Roughly three-quarters of residents in San Francisco said their quality of life has declined over the past year.
The stores closing in San Francisco are also clearly just being racist, there is no crime problem in the city…
Instead of joggers or “teens”, you can just say “Neiman Marcus shoppers” We will know what you mean.
On the bright side, all of these leftists fleeing the shitholes they helped create will move to a town near you where they will repeat the same process and allow you to enjoy the fruits of diversity. It’s our greatest strength after all.
