Commit a crime with a kid in the room, get off scot-free. Commit the same crime without a kid, and off to the can you go.

Fresh from firing experienced prosecutors for…prosecuting crimes, Hugo Chávez’s fair-haired boy in San Francisco, newly elected district attorney Chesa Boudin, is going himself one better and launching a new program to allow criminals charged with felonies and misdemeanors off the hook if they go into “diversion” programs. His condition? Having a kid in the household.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle:
“I grew up visiting my parents behind bars,” Boudin said in a statement announcing the policy. “I know the kind of trauma the sudden loss of a parent can have on a child and the kind of resources that are needed to make that child whole again. This is about taking responsibility, protecting the sanctity of the family, and ensuring innocent children are not condemned to repeat the mistakes of their parents.”
Commit a crime with a kid in the room, get off scot-free. Commit the same crime without a kid, and off to the can you go. Amazing, that newfound respect for “sanctity of the family,” as if the communist left believed in anything sacred beyond the party. Chesa’s parents were sent to the can for driving a getaway car in a terrorist-linked robbery that resulted in the murder of black police officer Waverley Brown, another officer, and a security guard. Based on young Chesa’s statement, these killers should have been sent to a diversion program instead of the big house because separating them from their kids after what they did would have been hard on the kids, and never mind how hard their crimes were on the dead cop’s kids. Weather Underground terrorist ringleaders Bill “guilty as sin, free as a bird” Ayers and his sidekick, Bernardine Dohrn, ended up raising young Chesa in a wealthy radical Chicago enclave with his parents’ “values,” but apparently, it wasn’t enough.
