Woke San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin DEFENDS shoplifter in infamous Walgreens video and says he was 'desperate', then blames the drugstore's security guard amid city robbery explosion
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Chesa Boudin has been the District Attorney of San Francisco since 2019

  • On June 14 a man was filmed stealing a garbage bag full of items from Walgreens

  • The viral video was used of evidence for a crime wave in San Francisco

  • Since 2014, thefts below $950 have been prosecuted as misdemeanors

  • Boudin spoke to The New Yorker in an interview published on Thursday

  • He said his response to the video was to ask whether the perpetrator was 'drug addicted, mentally ill, desperate' and what was 'driving this behavior'

  • He asked whether Walgreens deliberately accounted for losses from theft

  • The suspect, Jean Lugo-Romero, 40, was arrested on June 19 and remains in jail

  • He previously robbed the same store on May 29, May 30, May 31 and June 1

  • He was previously stopped by police and Walgreens declined to prosecute

BLM Sez They'll Hound Sen. Whitehouse Unless He Quits His Whites-Only Club
"Let's you and him fight!"
[Twitchy] - Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, who still hasn’t stopped harassing Justice Brett Kavanaugh, got a taste of his own medicine last month when a story about him belonging to an "all-white" private beach club blew up in the media, even though his office claimed that the club had members of color — which didn’t exactly fit Whitehouse’s claim that the club was "still working on" integrating. Then he was busted for "failing to address" the "lack of diversity" at a sailing club to which he belonged.

That was a month ago, but now the New York Post is reporting that Black Lives Matter Rhode Island told WLNE that they will make Whitehouse’s life miserable unless he cuts ties with Bailey’s Beach Club.
You know what's next - let's start the pool! I think BLM won't strike this weekend (sudden change of plans by the Senator) but they will by the following weekend, and for some reason I think Whitehouse folds immediately. Put me down for $5 on Aug. 7th.

#2  I say go ahead and make this hypocritical bastard's life miserable. I think this is fine use of BLM's time and energy - no sarcasm intended.

#2  The numbers to "Dear Leader" Pelosi emmit a busy signal as well as the "Pigs of Pelosi" main Capital Police number.

#3  I agree she needs to wear a mask.
Posted by: Chris || 07/30/2021 0:19 Comments || Top||

#4  I can understand her position on it. Given that she knows where she's going to spend eternity, you'd want to make as much time here as possible.

#7  Nan is a piker (thank goodness) compared next to some queens and female rulers in history. Our system is such that there are some checks and balances on unbridled power grabs.

#8  And all the republicans showed up today without masks.

#4  Why don't the Representatives sue the detention facility and whoever ordered facility personnel to bar these Reps. from performing their duties?
Posted by: JohnQC || 07/30/2021 12:27 Comments || Top||

#5  Whomever commands that facility should be up on charges or should produce documentation proving they had orders from the Executive Branch.

#6  They should return accompanied by US Marshalls. This is totalitarian bullshit of the first order.

#7  Makes one wonder if these people have not already been moved elsewhere.
Posted by: Besoeker || 07/30/2021 15:18 Comments || Top||

#8  Under who's authority?

Name names. Whoever ordered this needs to be held accountable. Even if its Queen Nancy.

#9  Obama did this to an independent filmmaker during the 2014 election. Now it's just SOP. America died, and we didn't even have a funeral.
