SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – San Francisco literally has a “poop patrol” service that requires city workers to clean up the streets after people use them as their personal bathrooms.
And after their latest announcement, it appears as city leaders are only emboldening people to continue relieving themselves wherever they want.
And that’s not the only criminal behavior they’ll be turning a blind eye to.
San Francisco’s newly elected district attorney says his new list of infractions that will not be prosecuted is an attempt at “decriminalizing poverty and homelessness,” and those crimes include public urination and prostitution.
Essentially, because we can’t help fix the problem, let’s just ignore it.
“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes,” DA Chesa Boudin said. “Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted. Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted; we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness.”
Boudin defeated his opponent after promising a massive overhaul to the city’s criminal justice system.
“There can be no justice when we utilize prison and jail as the solution to all of our problems,” he said after he realized he had won the race. “We must think differently.”
But “thinking differently” may just mean less of the law and order that we feel slipping away across the country as leaders push to close jails and stop handing out punishments for crimes.
Chesa Boudin, the son of two murderous, anti-war extremists sent to prison for murder when he was a toddler, managed to win San Francisco’s race for district attorney after campaigning to reform the criminal justice system.
Boudin, who was previously a deputy public defender, declared victory Saturday night after four days of ballot counting had showcased that he was ahead of interim District Attorney Suzy Loftus.
According to the most recent count, the San Francisco Department of Elections gave Boudin a lead of 8,465 votes in the race. The interim District Attorney stated that she will make sure there’s a smooth transition within the office.
Criminal justice reform is a talking point quite popular for those leaning more toward left-of-center when running for elected positions as Boudin, 39, became the most recent candidate across the nation to win district attorney elections by pushing for extensive restructuring regarding incarceration.
His agenda in office is to tackle racial bias in the criminal justice system, overhaul the bail system, protect immigrants from deportation and pursue accountability in police misconduct cases. They sound like buzz-worthy talking points, but how exactly does a D.A. protect immigrants from deportation?

Boudin said in a statement after the proclaimed victory:
“The people of San Francisco have sent a powerful and clear message: It’s time for radical change to how we envision justice. I’m humbled to be a part of this movement that is unwavering in its demand for transformation.”
He was 14-month-old when his parents, who were members of the far-left, terrorist organization Weather Underground, dropped him off with a babysitter and took part in an armored car robbery in upstate New York that left two police officers and a security guard dead.
His mother, Kathy Boudin, served 22 years behind bars and his father, David Gilbert, may spend the rest of his life in prison.
His parent’s circumstances after their criminal acts were a part of his campaign messaging; as shown in one of his videos pertaining to running for office Boudin stated:
“Growing up, I had to go through a metal detector and steel gates just to give my parents a hug.”
Well, that’s what happens when you visit a terrorist responsible for three dead in a gruesome armed robbery.
He said that as one of the dozens of people whose lives were shattered by the deadly robbery in 1981, he experienced first-hand the destructive effects of mass incarceration and it motivated him to reform the nation’s broken criminal justice system.
What’s confusing in this notion, is how does one determine the criminal justice system is broken because they had to visit their parents in prison?
Chesa Boudin grew up with both his parents incarcerated. He's going to be San Francisco's next district attorney. https://t.co/SXhM7uAkPN

Officers Waverly L. Brown and Edward J. O’Grady, and Brinks employee Peter Paige, never got to go home on October 20, 1981. The imprisonment of all involved showed that the criminal justice system works.
Boudin was raised in Chicago by leaders of the deemed terrorist organization Weather Underground, specifically Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, with Dohrn actually having been on the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted list due to her helping lead Weather Underground.
Boudin’s campaign victory celebration showed the true nature of the people supporting him.
At Boudin’s party, Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer led a “F— the POA” chant, referring to the Police Officers Association.
“Hey, so I just got one thing to say,” Fewer told the crowd, “Which is f— the POA! San Francisco, this is what we get when we throw the f— down. This is the city where we elect a public defender to be our district attorney. What we start here, the nation follows. So, look out.”
She went on to call the police liars.
“I want to personally thank every single person here. But I want to thank every single voter that saw through the ‘lies’, that said we need something better. We want something better. We can have something better. Thank you, San Francisco.”
In case you are wondering if you read that correctly…you did.
