Jennifer van Laar, at Red State, explains what Justice as administered by minority left-wingers elected with George Soros-funding looks like.
Last week we brought you the story of Nichelle Holmes, a Deputy District Attorney in California who made social media posts proclaiming â€œWe want more than a citation for vandalismâ€ for the couple who painted over a Black Lives Matter mural in her jurisdiction. The office has now charged the couple with a â€œhate crime.â€
Holmesâ€™ boss, Diana Becton, is in her first term as elected District Attorney, one of a number of district attorneys heavily supported by lefty billionaire George Soros. Sources tell RedState that as soon as Becton took over she implemented major changes in the way the office was run and in the way crimes were charged and how aggressively cases were prosecuted. One recent change, which Iâ€™ll address further in a moment, has to do with charging people for â€œlooting,â€ which is basically stealing during a state of emergency (i.e., protests or riots).
Becton is BFFâ€™s with St. Louisâ€™ Kim Gardner and Chicagoâ€™s Kim Foxx, whoâ€™ve been in the news for their terrible policies. This week she co-authored a Politico op-ed with Gardner, Foxx, and two other Soros-funded DAâ€™s explaining their philosophy and 11-point plan for further ruining Americaâ€™s cities.
The quintuplet started off by sharing their completely inane understanding of the origins of our justice system (apparently not understanding that criminal legal systems pre-date the colonization of North America):
â€œOur criminal legal system was constructed to control Black people and people of color. Its injustices are not new but are deeply rooted in our countryâ€™s shameful history of slavery and legacy of racial violence. The system is acting exactly as it was intended to, and that is the problem.
â€œWe should know: Weâ€™re Black, weâ€™re female, and weâ€™re prosecutors. We work as the gatekeepers in this flawed system. And we have some ideas for how to fix it.â€
Say what? And the fact that theyâ€™re the gatekeepers is scary as hell â€“ not because of their skin color or their gender (wait, is gender actually a thing anymore?), but because they want to remove the blindfold from Lady Justiceâ€™s eyes.
Instead, these prosecutors place a duty to enact societal change upon their deputies and believe they must â€œrectify past wrongsâ€:
The decisions that prosecutors make can either work to rectify the inherent harms in the legal system or perpetuate them. Part of our responsibility, as elected public servants, is to be self-aware and recognize that we are part of the problem. It is our moral and ethical duty to start advancing racial equity-minded policiesâ€”and community advocates and voters should hold us accountable for doing so.
Working from within, we have begun the steps to rectify past wrongs. We are implementing policies that include declining to prosecute minor offenses, overturning wrongful convictions, refusing to take cases from officers with a history of racial bias and expunging marijuana convictions. And we are currently working within our own offices to make the system fairer and more just.
Becton, the Contra Costa County DA, is already putting â€œracial equity-minded policiesâ€ in place and enforcing them in her office. The following â€œLooting Guidelinesâ€ document was provided to RedState by a confidential source and verified as authentic by a separate source familiar with the officeâ€™s policies. [see below]…
So, letâ€™s get this straight. Deputy District Attorneys and/or the countyâ€™s law enforcement officers are supposed to go through a flow chart, including a psychological and financial analysis, to determine if looting charges should be filed?
This is whatâ€™s happening in the Bay Area right now.So, letâ€™s get this straight. Deputy District Attorneys and/or the countyâ€™s law enforcement officers are supposed to go through a flow chart, including a psychological and financial analysis, to determine if looting charges should be filed?

And if the property owner points a gun at looters, these DAs will indict for assault.
