Soros-backed St. Louis Prosecutor Ensures All Arrested Looters and Rioters Released From Jail

Soros-backed St. Louis Prosecutor Ensures All Arrested Looters and Rioters Released From Jail

“every single one of the St. Louis looters and rioters arrested were released back onto the streets by local prosecutor Kim Gardner”

Back in 2018, Katy Grimes wrote about leftist billionaire George Soros funneling millions into U.S. District Attorney races across the country.

Apparently, the investment is paying off now.  Soros-backed Saint Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner reportedly declined to prosecute those arrested for looting and rioting.  More than 30 people were released from jail.

The Saint Louis Post-Dispatch reports:

The more than 30 people arrested during two nights of protests in St. Louis have been released from jail, a police spokeswoman said Wednesday.

The release of the 36 drew a rebuke from Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, who criticized city prosecutors.

Two were released after being issued a summons, eight were released after prosecutors refused to immediately file charges and the remainder were released while police apply for charges, the spokeswoman, Michelle Woodling, said in an email.

Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner’s spokeswoman, Allison Hawk, said in an email that police only sought charges in “a few” cases of stealing during looting, and prosecutors refused charges because they wanted more investigation. “In an effort to hold the offenders accountable, we need essential evidence from the police. These matters remain under investigation,” she wrote.

Back in 2016 when Gardner was running for Circuit Attorney, she came under fire for accepting the help of a Soros-backed PAC.

The Saint Louis Post-Dispatch reported at the time:

Updated at noon Aug. 1 with information on a third large donation to candidate Kim Gardner from George Soros-backed ‘super PAC.’

Kimberly Gardner, one of four Democrats running for St. Louis circuit attorney in the Aug. 2 primary, is taking heat for a new political ad paid for with money from a national super PAC that is at least partly funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.

The new internet and cable TV ad was financed by a federally registered campaign committee from Washington called the Safety & Justice Committee. It was established in June and reported $30,000 in initial funds from Soros. No other contributors were listed as of its last public filing June 30.

. . . . Joe Steiger, president of the police union, said he believes that Soros also funded out-of-state activists to escalate protests into riots in Ferguson after the Aug. 9, 2014, police shooting of Michael Brown, 18.

“It’s pretty insulting,” Steiger said Friday of the contribution to Gardner. “It’s more important for people to realize that calling for ‘black lives matter’ and ‘blue lives matter’ is not an opposite proposition.”

. . . . Gardner said Friday that she has no regrets about assistance from the super PAC. She said the latest donation is paying for the TV and online ad, and that the committee’s mission aligns with her platform to reform the criminal justice system and restore trust in the community.

. . . .  Soros, a prominent backer of liberal causes, has supported Democrats in similar district attorney races around the country, including Chicago, Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana, according to published news reports.

Were they tested for CV19 before release?

Speaking of which, how is that test and trace thing supposed to work with the protesters and rioters?

Wonder what her reaction would be if rioters and looters broke into her home, stole her belongings, and then burned it to the ground.

    I think that the haughty expression on her face would change to something else, and fast.

    I’d cheer if they did.

    For all its talk of being a street uprising, Black Lives Matter is increasingly awash in cash, raking in pledges of more than $100 million from liberal foundations and others eager to contribute to what has become the grant-making cause du jour.

    The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy recently announced the formation of the Black-Led Movement Fund [BLMF], a six-year pooled donor campaign aimed at raising $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives coalition.

    That funding comes in addition to more than $33 million in grants to the Black Lives Matter movement from top Democratic Party donor George Soros

      Black live matters ‘members’ are pawns to fascists.

      Ignoramuses with nothing else going with them. Le bron james too (what a dummy). Boycott his ass, if there is anything left to boycott.

      Soros should finally be arrested for funding terrorism.

      When your electricity goes out, you’ll either know troops are on their or antifa terrorists are taking over your area, and their blm allies will be coming to burn and looy your home. If you are a good looking woman, HIDE.

Federal Law Enforcement needs to step in and take custody of these rioters so they can be charged under Federal Law.

    Some need to tried and jailed, some also need to be put down to make a lasting impression. Obviously, under the right, as in clearly justifiable circumstances, this can be done.

Richard Epstein today disagrees with me on the Floyd death but lays into the progressives over riot management.

Given that one of the things these scum were crying for was the end of two tiered justice, you would think they all would have said no, put me on trial.

We do not have a justice system with Soros puppets like this crazy woman. We might as well not have any laws if they can be broken, with impunity, and prosecutors like her let them go. This vile creature should be impeached, removed from office, disbarred. She has effectively incited the next wave of riots.

We are witnessing that “train of abuses” referred to in the Declaration of Independence.

She released a bunch of white nationalists?

Where the f&$k is Barr?

How ineffective can the Federal government be

Last Republican elected Mayor of St. Louis left office in 1949. They get what they voted for, good and hard.

May God grant that Ms. Gardner receive her just punishment.

AA is really, really expensive.

From a friend, here in Brooklyn NY:

My office’s file clerk from Bed Stuy explained what is going on. He says a lot of folks in the hood “haven’t been eating” since COVID-19 started. He doesn’t mean food. He means whatever scams, hustles, shoplifting, robbing, etc. they are acustomed to doing, they haven’t been able to do. They have been limited to stealing Amazon packages. They’ve been getting no action. He was expecting that they would soon start robbing the white people who have moved into the gentrifying neighborhoods. But then this protest thing started. They don’t really give a damn about the protests, but seized the opportunity to put on masks and start “eating.”

On the same topic of terrorists protecting terrorists: US District Judge Margo Brodie, an Obama judge, has granted bail to Urooj Rahman, the “human rights lawyer” accused of firebombing a police car.

Just like Comey’s whitewash of Hillary!, the fix is in. The chance of ANY Antifa terrorist being sentenced to jail are near zero.

Please assure me that she can’t be involved in the David Dorn case

They were safer in jail.

Uprisings work in both directions.

How long before she is dragged out of her home and shot dead on the street?

Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!

“Hooking and Booking” makes for crappy police reports and insufficient evidence to charge, much less convict.

the legal system appears to have failed in st louis

welcome to the wild, wild west

believe the ultimate goal of all of this is voter indimidation not safe to leave your house? then damn sure not safe to journey to your local precinct to cast your vote

if this is indeed the game of antifa/blm/et al, then so be it–regardless of their tactics, they are HEAVILY outnumbered and outgunned

Meanwhile, police are being shot in St. Louis. This woman must be removed from office, one way or another.

Well, in case it wasn’t clear … we can’t let any of these people in to be assistant dog catcher or town hall janitorm, let alone anything more impactful.

Along with political remedies, we need to get real.

You may disagree with the strategy, the function, or the job. Even so, you can’t “take” the job, then not do it. There’s a word for that — several, actually.

As Maggie Thatcher said: “First you win the argument, then you win the vote.”

Make them win the argument, and the vote — the law, not people injected, as “personnell is policy.”

“There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there – good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory… Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea – God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.” – Elizabeth Warren, 2011

About that ‘marauding bands’ thing …

President Trump should send Kimberly Gardner a nice fruit basket and thank you card for her in-kind contribution to his successful reelection campaign. Sweet Jesus, Missouri will surely go as Red as a newborn baby’s rear end this fall.
