It may fly in other parts of the country, but Indiana lawmakers are taking steps to make sure it doesn't fly in the Hoosier state.
The Indiana Senate passed a bill on Tuesday to stop prosecutors from deciding that they won’t prosecute whole categories of crimes.
The bill, authored by Sen. Mike Young, R-Indianapolis, would allow the state attorney general to submit a petition to request a special prosecutor in such cases.
It’s meant to stop a “growing trend” seen in many cities on the west and east coasts, Young said, and also in Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans.
“There are a lot of people who believe it’s George-Soros-backed, or his organizations that are backing these prosecutors to get elected. It’s called social justice prosecuting,” Young told his colleagues on Tuesday.
