San Francisco was a once beautiful city that I enjoyed visiting.
But with Democrats in charge, it has since descended into a needle and poop-infested pithole.
It’s also going to get even worse with the San Francisco District Attorney now responsible for prosecuting crime in the city since he was voted in last year. Chesa Boudin ran on a platform that he would eliminate criminal prosecution for “quality of life” crimes. So for all those things that are prohibited and make life in a city livable, this guy just removed the proscriptions on them, guaranteeing that they will get even worse.
If his name sounds familiar, it’s because Boudin was the child of Weather Underground terrorists.
Boudin’s parents were getaway drivers in the attempted Brink’s robbery in 1981 in Nanuet, New York, about 35 miles north of New York City. His mother, Kathy Boudin, pleaded guilty to murder and robbery and was imprisoned for more than two decades. His father, David Gilbert, is still behind bars after he was convicted of murder and robbery.
He then was raised by other Weather underground members, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.
But Boudin decided to put his foot in his mouth. He not only said Kyle Rittenhouse had committed murder, he claimed that there was “strong evidence that the white shooter was motivated by racial bias.”
Anyone want to understand the failings of money bail?
Look no further: strong evidence of a white shooter motivated by racial bias committing a double murder with an assault rifle.
But wealth sets him free. https://t.co/035xR53idQ

Ronald Reagan had a famous saying that is so true. “Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant,” he said. “It’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” But they’re really convinced of it and they’ll share it on Twitter to convince you, even if it’s completely false and slanderous.
First of course, Rittenhouse hasn’t had a trial and hasn’t been found guilty of committing a murder. He has a golden case of self-defense, all on video, which the NY Times has even proven. But why should a DA respect due process, right? He seems to be convicting him based on his, Boudin’s, political beliefs.
On top of that, what “strong evidence” of racial bias are you talking about, Chesa? Please even present any evidence of racial bias since none has been produced? Oh, and one other small fact that Boudin seems to have missed: the people Kyle shot while defending himself were all white, just like him. So what does this have to do with racial bias now that you’ve slandered him?
Perhaps Boudin is not aware that one of Rittenhouse’s attorneys is L. Lin Wood who has experience going after people for slander just like this. Wood famously has represented Nicholas Sandmann in his suits against media who slandered him over his wearing of a MAGA hat.
Finally, what came to Rittenhouse’s rescue wasn’t “wealth” who comes from a family of limited means. It was charity, the charity of thousands of small donors who thought getting him out because he defended himself against BLM radicals.
But here’s the thing. Leftists like Boudin want to get rid of cash bail. So would they have just let Kyle out without any bail? That’s basically what they’re arguing for.
Thinking that Boudin really needs a strongly worded letter from Wood.
The DA of San Francisco has falsely accused an innocent minor of shooting two ppl out of racial bias.
Despite sharing his race with those he was defending himself against captured on camera.
This is progressive "Justice" where you are found guilty based on political prejudice. https://t.co/PIab576M9s
