Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nationalreview.com: “California DA Claims ‘Rogue Prosecutors’ Are Emboldening Criminals | National Review”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sacramento County district attorney Anne Marie Schubert claimed that “rogue prosecutors” in California have been incentivizing offenders to perpetrate crimes with their relaxed penalty policies.

“This is just yet another example of the chaos that we’re seeing here in California and the violence,” Sacramento County DA Anne Marie Schubert told Fox & Friends on Friday. “And it’s not just that, it’s the fact that we’ve got a tsunami of poor public policies, and you’ve got rogue prosecutors that are not holding people accountable to the fullest extent of the law that we can.”

Progressive prosecutors in major cities have come under fire recently for passing policies that seem likely to embolden criminals even as violence and crime rates mount.

Schubert specifically targeted Los Angeles prosecutor George Gascon and San Francisco prosecutor Chesa Boudin. She said their tough-on-crime posturing is a façade, backed mostly by rhetoric rather than action.

“When they try to talk tough, it’s really just a show because when you actually follow them through with those cases, what we’re seeing is that they’re really not being tough on crime, they’re not holding people accountable,” she added.
