    Son Of Weather Underground Terrorists, Socialist Chesa Boudin Wins Race For DA Of San Francisco

    Progressive candidate Chesa Boudin won the race for district attorney in San Francisco on Saturday.

    Boudin and opponent Suzy Loftus were neck-and-neck for days as officials tallied votes from the city’s ranked-choice ballots.

    Boudin, 39, is a public defender who ran on a platform of closing jails, eliminating cash bail, combating racism in the criminal justice system and diverting people from jails and prisons.

    Loftus, the interim district attorney, congratulated Boudin on his win Saturday afternoon and vowed a “smooth and immediate transition.”

    he San Francisco Chronicle was the first outlet to report on Boudin’s win.

    Boudin beat out three other candidates, all would-be political newcomers, including Loftus, who was suddenly appointed interim district attorney last month after then-DA George Gascón stepped down to explore a run for DA in Los Angeles. Loftus, who was appointed to the interim post by San Francisco Mayor London Breed, had previously lined up other high-profile endorsements from presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) and was considered the more establishment candidate.

    Breed drew criticism for using her office to place her favored candidate in the DA seat. It was unclear if the move would work in Loftus’ favor by positioning her as the incumbent or if it would hurt her by boosting outrage-fueled support for her opponents, namely Boudin. At this point, it’s unknown how much the move altered the outcome of the election, if at all.

    Boudin, meanwhile, had the support of big-name progressives like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is running for president, as well as activist Angela Davis and two members of the growing, nationwide movement of “progressive prosecutor” candidates: Larry Krasner, now DA in Philadelphia, and Tiffany Cabán, who narrowly lost a primary battle for DA in Queens, New York.

    “Electing someone like Chesa as DA, it’s going to have an effect around the country,” Cabán said in August, after flying to San Francisco to campaign for Boudin weeks after her own loss.

    In his campaign, Boudin leaned on his deep personal experience with the criminal justice system: When he was just over a year old, both of his parents were sent to prison.

    “The experience of having parents incarcerated is actually, sadly, really normal in this country,” Boudin said in August. “That’s a lived experience that is in many ways a defining part of modern American culture, but one that’s all too often removed from or ignored by the political class.”

    Boudin was 14 months old when his parents, then members of the radical leftist group the Weather Underground, were jailed for driving the getaway car for an infamous 1981 armed robbery in New York in which two police officers and a security guard were killed.

    His father is still in New York state prison serving a 75-years-to-life sentence and his mother, who was paroled in 2003, now runs a criminal justice initiative at Columbia University.

    “I think it’s imperative people who make the decisions about who should be sent to prison, for what, for how long … have an understanding of that experience,” Boudin said in August, of growing up with incarcerated parents.

    Boudin was a leader in the yearslong effort in San Francisco and California to challenge the cash bail system. (Earlier this year, a federal judge ruled that San Francisco’s cash bail system violated the rights of poor defendants, though the judge still has to issue an injunction for the system to change in practice. At the state level, California residents will be voting in 2020 on whether to eliminate cash bail statewide.) On any given day in 2016, nearly half of the jail population in San Francisco would have been eligible for release if those inmates simply posted bail, per a report from the office of the city treasurer.

    Central to his platform for DA was ending “racist disparities [that] plague every step of our criminal justice system.” In San Francisco, black people are nine times more likely to be booked into jails than white people, according to a Human Rights Watch analysis of 2014-2015 county data.

    Boudin has committed to closing San Francisco’s County Jail No. 4, where inmates are housed in a building considered seismically unsafe. His plan is to reduce the total inmate population across all city jails so No. 4 can be shuttered.

    According to the city health commission, about 40% of people booked into San Francisco jails are homeless or insecurely housed, about one in five are diagnosed as seriously mentally ill and about three-quarters reported substance use (not including marijuana). Boudin wants “every arrest to be an opportunity for intervention” to divert people from the criminal justice system into programs for mental health, addiction and housing.

    “Jail should be a last resort,” Boudin said in August.

    “We need a district attorney who understands the big picture and what’s driving crime,” he added. “We can’t jail our way out of the problem.”

    snips:

    Boudin was born in New York City. His parents, Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, were Weather Underground members.

    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. His mother was sentenced to 20 years to life and his father to 75 years to life for the felony murders of two police officers and a security guard. After his parents were incarcerated, Boudin was raised in Chicago by adoptive parents Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who, like his parents, were members of the Weather Underground. Kathy Boudin was released under parole supervision in 2003.

    Boudin descends from a long left-wing lineage. His great-great-uncle, Louis B. Boudin, was a Marxist theoretician and author of a two-volume history of the Supreme Court's influence on American government, and his grandfather Leonard Boudin was an attorney who represented controversial clients such as Fidel Castro and Paul Robeson. Boudin is also related to Michael Boudin, a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and I.F. Stone, an independent journalist.

    Boudin went to St Antony's College, Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship in 2003. At Oxford, he earned two master's degrees, one in forced migration and the other in public policy in Latin America. He earned his Juris Doctor from Yale Law School in 2011, and began work for the San Francisco Public Defender's Office as a post-doctoral fellow in 2012.
    It's all relative. George Washington was a criminal in Britain’s books.

    the people have spoken--may they be happy with their choice and what he brings to them

    next they will re-define what a crime is in order to lower the crime rate

    There is such a thing as a Masters degree in "forced migration " ? Doesn't that explain a lot!

    Is it safe to predict San Fran becomes ground zero for assorted left-wing protests and violence?

    What a beautiful city for such besmirchment.

    Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

    Look for more equivalent to "poop in the streets."

    Horse predicts San Fran will become lawless within 2 years. Business will move out, respectability is already gone, and San Fran will become the "pull capitol" of politics.

    Correct that - politics, the art of finding the middle ground - is dead already in San Fran. Replaced by government gangster-ism.

    Yup. Venezuela North.

    Gotta hand it to those Progressives. Reversion to pre-progress in less than a generation - all in the name of progress.

    My guess is Antifa will be given free reign to do as they please; no prosecutions will occur no matter how many are arrested or for what.

    INDEED - as in so many other cities where many forms of crime are not prosecuted but rather they are simply over looked - Jussie Smells-it on steroids is a fine and well known example. the justUS system has moved to three tiers now peeps of color have their own rules but the ROL for you are ironclad and intact.

    Have you read the Weather Undergrounds manual from the late 60's-70's? PRARIE FIRE - The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism. It's the political statement of the Weather Underground. Once you read it, you will get a really good idea of who he is and what he believes. I'm sure it's on one of the free book websites in PDF.

    I have a copy of it. Got mine when I was going to college at Bzerkley when the Weather Underground was forming and raising all kinds of hell demonstrating, etc every day. I grew up in California (50's-60's), it was a red state then. We'd already been through groups like the SLA - Patty Hearst's group, and several others. Lots of demonstrations, etc.

    I'm sure that today's Antifa is just another that embraces the priciples of Prarie Fire.

    One of the tenents of classic Marxism is one of "continuous revolution."

    One would be advised to give San Francisco a wide berth henceforth because such revolution can be spontaneous (well as far as planned by their version of "powers that be") as well as violent and certainly life changing.

    That is the point of continuous revolution. To keep humanity poor and helpless and "needy..." No civilization ever came out of a war "improved." Even the winners lose - perhaps not as bad as the losers but they still lose something. And this keeps the "masses" a perfect receptor of all the scraps that may fall from the Elite plate.

    Rice-A-Roni may well become the only treat found in San Francisco.

    San Francisco’s New DA: Public Urination ‘Will Not Be Prosecuted’

    Peter Hasson Senior Reporter

    San Francisco’s pee problem could soon get worse.

    Chesa Boudin, the urine-and-feces-plagued city’s incoming district attorney, pledged during the campaign not to prosecute public urination and other quality-of-life crimes if he was elected. Boudin declared victory Saturday night after results showed him winning a plurality of votes in the DA race.

    “We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted,” Boudin vowed in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) questionnaire during the campaign.

    “Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted, we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness,” he lamented.

    Boudin’s campaign didn’t return the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for confirmation that he would follow through on his pledge not to prosecute public urination.

    Boudin’s parents were members of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist group. Boudin “was raised in Chicago by Weather Underground leaders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn” after his parents were sent to prison on murder charges while he was a toddler, NBC News noted.

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders cheered Boudin’s victory in the election. “Now is the moment to fundamentally transform our racist and broken criminal justice system by ending mass incarceration, the failed war on drugs and the criminalization of poverty,” the Vermont Sen. wrote on Twitter Saturday, congratulating Boudin on his “historic victory!”

    So, "quality of life" for some will ruin many others' Pursuit of Happiness.

    As society's tolerance pendulum gets LONGER and LONGER, Mr. Boudin and his ilk will be very uncomfortable when rude behavior has consequences again...

    Who cares? If it gets bad enough, many conventions, tourist organizations, etc. will pull out of ever going to these cities. The citizens wanted this. I don't care if they voted for the other progressive, the ideology is all the same. Eventually this is where the left road leads to.

    I recently read a comment about how the progressives are using tolerance as a way to show their compassion. They tolerate behavior that was completely unacceptable in the past. This is what happens when half the political ideology of a country thinks you have to bend to support just one person because they are different in some fashion.

    They are using tolerance as excuse to undermine "normalcy." If normalcy has no value, less humans will strive for it - which reduces the attraction of the status quo and opens the door to alternates.

    And - in the process give the Marxists more leverage in installing their own "normal" - which will be whatever they tell you it is.

    Normal for them at the beginning includes tolerance - later it will not be tolerant of ANYTHING other than conformity to their will.

    Think carrot & stick.

    IPOT has a very long vid on following the Weather Underground connections among the well connected. He traces Chesa Boudin's relations and history. The guy spent time in Venezuela as an "adviser."

    His father is still in New York state prison serving a 75-years-to-life sentence and his mother, who was paroled in 2003, now runs a criminal justice initiative at Columbia University.
    What the - what is a CRIMINAL JUSTICE INITIATIVE? And why would Columbia pay to have an Ex-Con running it?

    Columbia University

    Boudin was named an adjunct professor at the Columbia University School of Social Work, where she is now the Co-Director and Co-Founder of the Center for Justice at Columbia University.[20] Her appointment was controversial due to her guilty plea to a felony murder charge and her past participation in a group which carried out terrorist attacks in the United States.[21][22] However, it is also noted that she atoned for her crime and successfully rehabilitated herself.[23] Columbia School of Social Work Associate Dean Marianne Yoshioka, who hired Boudin for the adjunct-professor post in 2008, was quoted as saying that Boudin has been "an excellent teacher who gets incredible evaluations from her students each year."[21] In 2013, she was Sheinberg Scholar-in-Residence at New York University School of Law. The School of Law maintains a video of her lecture.[24]
    It seems that Dean Marianne Yoshioka has gone on to another hot-bed of "social responsibility" at Smith College.

    A little "in-bred" methinks makes a political animal without ability to adapt? And a desire to force you to adapt to them?
