“Chesa Boudin has spent his whole life grappling with incarceration and its far-reaching implications.”
In June of last year, the people of San Francisco successfully recalled Soros-backed District Attorney Chesa Boudin because they were tired of his insane leftist policies on law enforcement.
Now he has been hired to teach at the University of California, Berkeley Law School. Isn’t that just perfect?

From the Berkeley announcement:
Chesa Boudin Brings a Lifetime of Experience to Lead New Criminal Law & Justice Center
Chesa Boudin has spent his whole life grappling with incarceration and its far-reaching implications. As the founding executive director of Berkeley Law’s new Criminal Law & Justice Center, he sees an exciting opportunity to build on his work of transforming the criminal legal system in profound ways.
“A lifetime of visiting my biological parents in prison and my work as a public defender and district attorney have made clear that our system fails to keep communities safe and fails to treat them equitably,” Boudin says. “I’m thrilled to join the nation’s premier public law school and engage with brilliant scholars and students to drive meaningful change by elevating the lived experience of those directly impacted.”
The center will be a research and advocacy hub to boost Berkeley Law’s public mission in the criminal justice arena. It will help foster research collaboration among faculty members and others, enhance law students’ training and practice opportunities, and strengthen connections between the university and the outside world.
It’s possible that going into academia was Boudin’s plan all along, much like Bill Ayers, the left-wing radical who raised him. The announcement from Berkeley treats this fact as a feature, not a bug:
Boudin’s parents, former members of the radical political group Weather Underground, spent more than six combined decades in prison for participating in a 1981 Brinks truck robbery that led to the death of two police officers and a security guard. Boudin was 14 months old at the time. His mother was released on parole after being incarcerated for 22 years, his father after 40.
Raised by his adoptive parents on the South side of Chicago, Boudin became a Rhodes Scholar, went to Yale Law School, and clerked for two federal judges.
Last word goes to Ted Cruz.
The disgraced former San Francisco District Attorney will be teaching generations of students at @BerkeleyLaw that ignoring the law is somehow “transforming” the legal system.
The “transformation” he forced upon his city has left it far more dangerous and barren. https://t.co/AfIQuOPv4P
