Schumpeter award ceremony in Vienna, Austria, Friday, June 21, 2019.

Soros-backed district attorneys have facilitated an onslaught of homicides against innocent Americans in cities throughout the U.S. In city after city, violent crime rates have skyrocketed where these so-called "progressive" district attorneys were elected to office. San Francisco D.A. Chesa Boudin’s actions in the case of John Gough is the latest example.

Gough is a 22-year-old man who was sentenced to three years in federal prison last week. He was arrested last December on federal charges of being a felon possessing a firearm, The Mercury News reported. The felony charges stem from an earlier store robbery. He had been in Santa Rita Jail before his federal sentencing by U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer.

Gough had previously been charged in connection with the armed robbery of a McDonald’s on Christmas Eve. He allegedly walked into the McDonald’s and threatened an employee with his gun. Gough allegedly pulled back the hammer of his gun after the McDonald’s employee refused to give him any cash, The Mercury News reported. Gough later cited a mental health issue as an excuse and told prosecutors, “cocaine is a hell of a drug.”

Boudin wanted to let Gough off without serving any jail time. Like many of the Soros-backed DAs whose policies are destroying cities around the U.S., Boudin advocated for Gough to haveenter a mental health diversion program in San Francisco. If not for the federal warrant, Boudin would have released this violent criminal yet again.

Boudin has been District Attorney of San Francisco since January 2020. Since he has been DA, gun violence and homicides have dramatically increased. The Boudin era is marked by videos of criminal behavior — such as assaults and robberies — gone viral. San Francisco has earned a reputation as an unsafe city. During Boudin’s first year in office, homicides increased by 31%.

Boudin is known for releaasing criminals with long records who have gone on to commit other crimes after being released. The Heritage Foundation documents two harrowing stories of how Boudin’s actions and policies led to criminals going free and then killing.

Boudin never served as a prosecutor before his election as San Francisco District Attorney. He has no clue about the value of incareration in helping keep ordinary, innocent people safe.

Boudin is helping make prophetic recent comments by Senator Tom Cotton condemning those prosecutors whom Soros helped elect. “The only good Soros prosecutor is a defeated Soros prosecutor,” Cotton proclaimed. He was 100% right. and Boudin's record in San Francisco is helping prove it.
