San Francisco: Soros-Backed Socialist DA Chesa Boudin Under Fire After Parolee He ‘Decarcerated’ Kills Two On New Year’s Eve

San Francisco: Soros-Backed Socialist DA Chesa Boudin Under Fire After Parolee He ‘Decarcerated’ Kills Two On New Year’s Eve

“Had the DA done their job, Mr. McAlister would’ve been in custody and you would not have grieving families.”

A 45-year-old parolee named Troy McAlister should have been in prison on New Year’s Eve, but instead of facing the Three Strikes life prison term he had earned through his criminal acts, he was set free by San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin. Since his April 2020 release, McAlister was arrested multiple times and released each time, with not even parole violation charges pursued.

McAlister, whose long rap sheet includes robbery and carjacking, was reportedly in a stolen car and under the influence of drugs and alcohol when he ran a red light and plowed into two pedestrians, both of whom died.  McAlister fled the scene.

NBC Bay Area reports:

The 45-year-old parolee held for the New Year’s Eve hit-and-run deaths of two pedestrians had been facing a Three-Strikes life prison term until he was freed last year under San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, documents obtained by NBC Bay Area’s Investigative Unit show.

Troy McAlister is now charged with felony vehicular manslaughter in the deaths of Elizabeth Platt, 60, and Hanako Abe, 27, who were both struck when McAlister ran a red light in a stolen vehicle on the afternoon of Dec. 31, according to prosecutors.

Until April of last year, McAlister was being held in jail awaiting trial on a 2015 robbery charge. Prosecutors were pursuing the case under the state’s Three Strikes law. If McAlister had been convicted, he could have faced a life sentence. McAlister was eligible for life based on his previous convictions for robbery and carjacking.

But Boudin issued a policy in February not to pursue Three Strikes cases, prompting a deal that granted McAlister credit for the five years he’d served in custody. He was freed from jail last April.

After he was released, McAlister was arrested several times but no criminal charges were filed and no parole violation proceedings were brought, court and police records show.

The arrests occurred as late as Dec. 20, when he was arrested on suspicion of driving a stolen vehicle in San Francisco and possessing burglary tools, according to police documents. He was arrested the month before at San Francisco State University for auto burglary and a parole violation. In August, he was arrested in San Francisco for drug and theft related charges and in June he was arrested for a residential burglary.

Court documents show that Boudin had appeared on behalf of McAlister in 2018 while he was a deputy public defender, triggering concerns about a possible conflict of interest now that he’s District Attorney.

LI readers may recall Boudin from our posts San Francisco: Socialist Son of Imprisoned Weather Underground Terrorists Who Was Raised By Bill Ayers and Worked for Hugo Chavez Elected D.A. and George Soros’ Efforts to Decimate Criminal Justice System Bearing Fruit.

As we noted:

Boudin’s “decarceration” and anti-police agenda earned the ire of the San Francisco Police Officers’ Association, who refer to Boudin as the “#1 choice of criminals and gang members.”

His election night party featured charming chants of “Fuck the POA.”

. . . . Boudin claims to be “part of a growing movement that’s bringing a new vision to the District Attorney’s office,” and he is right. It’s also a smart approach by the “social justice” / “reformative justice” / “decarceral justice” radicals who seek to undermine and replace Americans’ concept of equal justice under the law.

Given Boudin’s radical leftist history and his embrace of ‘social justice’ “decarceration” policies that specifically advocate letting career criminals like McAlister roam free among the law-abiding citizenry, it’s unsurprising that he tried to shift the blame for his own failed policies to other law enforcement agencies.  Socialists never take responsibility for the inevitable failure of their lunatic—often, as here, hazardous—policies.

ABC7 News reports:

Boudin has a history of referring cases involving repeat offenders to parole instead of prosecuting.

In Sunday’s live interview, Lim asked: “They (the CDCA) provided you all the details to revoke bail but yet you chose to do nothing… why are you blaming the parole office instead of taking direct accountability here?”

“This is not about blaming parole,” Boudin responded. “This about recognizing there are numerous law enforcement agencies… and we all have to depend on each other for doing their job properly.”

. . . . The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation sent ABC7 News a statement saying in part, “None of the parolee’s arrests following his 2020 release has yet to result in filings of criminal charges by the District Attorney.”

Boudin was critical of Daly City police as well, referencing a Dec. 29 incident when McAlister stole a car belonging to a woman he was on a date with at the Westlake shopping center, which was what he was driving during the New Year’s Eve hit-and-run.

“They were aware he was a parolee, they had his address, his phone number and most importantly, they knew he had a firearm in his possession. And instead of trying to arrest him, or notifying the parole officer, they wrote in their report that they intended to wait until Jan. 3, today. By today it’s too late.”

Daly City police told Lim their investigation followed all standard practices and procedures, and that the Jan. 3 date Boudin is referring to is actually an expiration date for follow-up.

. . . .  SFPD would not comment due to the ongoing investigation, but Lim spoke with Tony Montoya, president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association (SFPOA) union.

“That’s an automatic if someone’s on parole or on probation. You make a phone call or an email notification to their parole officer,” Montoya said, adding that, “Had the DA done their job, Mr. McAlister would’ve been in custody and you would not have grieving families.”

Boudin is not only blaming every related agency, after proving time and again he would not press charges no matter what they do, but he’s actually doubling-down on ‘decarceration,’ stating that the problem here is with the lack of support for parolees.

This almost unbelievable level of naivete combined with the groundless self-righteous conviction makes these people dangerous to civil society.

You want to see them throw the book at this guy? Accuse him of not wearing a mask.

Stupid progressive twats in San Fran are getting exactly what they voted for. Morons.

Soros is a terrorist and needs to be droned.

This is not going to be the only example of a prisoner that Chesa Boudin releases that will take advantage of his freedom to commit more crimes. Eventually, a victim of a Chesa-released prisoner- or a relative of such a victim- may decide to take revenge on Chesa.

Instead of such action on Chesa,I’d prefer that Chesa be dropped off in the mean streets of Caracas, that Chavista paradise. See how long he can last.

    He’s so openly antagonistic to the police, I can’t imagine he’s got any of them providing proper security at his mansion. I’m surprised no one’s shown him how the sausage is really made yet.

Meh. Chesa Boudin could have committed the murders himself – on national TV and the internet while wearing a white hooded robe and burning a cross – and it would not cost him a single vote.

The only way Boudin could lose is if he said “All Lives Matter”.

Decarcerated. Another made-up word?

Two entirely innocent people died.

Two additional, extremely culpable, people need to die.

Where is Harry Callahan when you need him?

Science tells us that when the state executes a convicted murderer, that murderer will never murder again.

    100% deterrent to that guy.

    Yes, aborting a life is a final solution that deprives opportunity to murderers, babies (“burdens”), and Jews, alike. That said, ideally, abortion without due process will never be normalized in a civilized society. #Hope #Change #YadaYada

Boudin only cares about his agenda and he does not give a crap about the two unfortunate victims. Chaos in the streets is his goal.

Solzhenitsyn in the Gulag books wrote extensively about the use communists made of criminals to keep the populace fearful and on it’s back foot. It was deliberate policy to house criminals with political prisoners. Make them small and fearful, easier to dominate and kill.

This is exactly the same thing– for all the sake reasons, by the same kind of people. The communists are definitely on the rise, and traditional assumptions about what American life is like are on the wane.

Has to be stopped somehow, and the obligation of government to provide safety from criminals reasserted. Not sure how, tho, given the “government” we have, cowards and self servers ten to one honest guy.

    Courageous people, without an interest in personal financial aggrandizement, and with an understanding of fundamental American founding principles, need to run. Run for everything, get involved in everything!

    I get pretty tired of people criticizing lawyers. People don’t seem to appreciate that many lawyers were pol. sci. majors, meaning some of them actually read some writings of the founders and others they based some of their ideas upon. That is a valuable education, even if rarely employed.

It’s a small price to pay for social progress. #HateLovesAbortion

If the “decarcerated” guy killed one of my family members, DA Boudin would be a dead man. Guaranteed. Take that to the bank.

Boudin’s parents are murderers, not surprising that they spawned one.

Gee, he looks s0 human.

” Good and hard” Unfortunately, in these days, the context need not be explained.

This POS DA needs to meet a car in a crosswalk, at night, at high speed.

Chesa Boudin’s “tweeted” commitment to make changes to parole supervision is a perfect example of gaslighting and what’s actually wrong with many elected officials. Someone ought to remind him that (a) it was his office that gave this man a walk not a parole / probation officer and (2) he’s the elected DA, he’s not in charge of probation or parole and shouldn’t be “committed” to any changes within those departments.

Par for the course, as far as the vile Dhimmi-crats’ ethos and agenda. Criminals are allegedly the true “victims,” drawing Dhimmi-crat sympathy, lavished with funding dollars and dealt slap-on-the-wrist “punishments,” while law-abiding citizens are given the middle finger.

Prosecutors generally enjoy absolute immunity regarding decisions made as to whom to prosecute and whom not to prosecute, if I understand correctly. But has anybody looked into whether there is anything that Boudin has done that could be characterized as outside the scope of his role as a prosecutor that could be actionable, such as any influence he may have improperly exercised in getting somebody released or making sure that somebody is not arrested, which might, conceivably, be viewed as outside the strict role of the prosecutor?

Another potential angle could be the distinction between immunity for discretionary decisions and possibly no immunity for decisions, such as a blanket refusal to prosecute “Three Strikes” cases, that do not actually involved discretion but are politically motivated.

The worthless commie codpiece is performing exactly as expected.
