Restorative justice in SF: DA Boudin drops charges against one suspect in viral attack on Asian man

Apparently the victim decided restorative justice was the best outcome for this case. I’m sure no influence was put upon him…

From SF Gate: San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is withdrawing charges against one of the two suspects arrested in connection to a shocking viral video that shows an Asian man being robbed.

Twenty-year-old Dwayne Grayson, who police say recorded and uploaded the disturbing clip to social media, will no longer be charged with elder abuse, and will instead face “restorative justice,” which involves rehabilitation and reconciliation with victims.

“We’ve been in conversation with the victim who expressed interest in a restorative justice outcome in this case,” Alex Bastian, a spokesperson for the DA’s office, told The Chronicle. “Specifically, against the young person who videoed the incident. We respect victims and their desires and we will explore a restorative justice outcome.

Grayson was also suspected of violating probation for battery.

Earlier Monday, police arrested 56-year-old Jonathan Amerson, the person suspected of hitting the victim with a metal pole. He was charged with robbery and elder abuse, and is also suspected of robbing the same victim of his recyclables about two months ago in the same area.

74 y.o. white man pushed off bus by black woman dies

The elderly white man, 74, who was pushed off a bus by a young black woman, 25, has died from injuries sustained from the fall.

On March 21, 2019, Cadesha Bishop, 25, argued with 74-year-old Serge Fournier on a bus in Las Vegas. Seconds later, as Fournier was exiting the bus using a walker, Bishop pushed him with both hands off the bus. Fournier landed face-down and motionless on the sidewalk.

Here’s the surveillance video of the incident:

When officers first arrived at the scene of the incident, Fournier said he didn’t want to receive any medical attention even though he was bleeding from the head. However, later that night, he was admitted to a hospital. He died on April 23 from injuries sustained from the fall. The coroner ruled the death a homicide. The cause of death was described as complications from blunt force trauma to the torso.

Bishop had fled the scene of the crime before police arrived. It was only after Fournier’s family notified police on May 3 that he had passed away that Bishop was arrested three days later, on May 6.

​Bishop has been charged with the murder of an elderly, vulnerable person. Police officials say that Bishop had been yelling profanities at people on the bus. When the bus stopped, Bishop and Fournier began to argue after Fournier told her to “be nicer to passengers.”

Bishop was held at the Clark County Detention Center on a $100,000 bail. She has since been released and placed under electronic monitoring. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 17 and she will remain under house arrest until that time, according to the Las Vegas Journal-Review.

Court records in Clark County, Nevada indicate Cadesha Bishop has a history of violence:

  • In March of 2012, she was charged with battery in a domestic violence case. Bishop agreed to a plea deal: she had to complete community service and “impulse control counseling” and to remain out of trouble.
  • In January 2013, Bishop was again charged with battery. She pleaded guilty more than a year later, and got a suspended jail sentence of 90 days, domestic violence counseling, and more community service.

Young female Kavanaugh protester taunts & assaults elderly man

Last Saturday, Oct. 6, after the Senate confirmed the nomination of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a young woman and a young man encircled an elderly man holding two signs in peaceful support of Kavanaugh.

The signs said “She [Christine Blasey Ford] is a good liar”, “Trump” and “Arm teachers Protest kids”.

The woman taunted the elderly man, dancing in front of and around him in her short shorts.

Then she struck the signs from his hands, hitting him.

That’s not just assault, it’s battery — a crime.

The legal definition of “assault” is “a threat of bodily harm coupled with an apparent, present ability to cause the harm. It is both a crime and a tort and, therefore, may result in either criminal or civil liability.” “Battery” is assault that involves bodily contact — “an intentional unpermitted act causing harmful or offensive contact with the ‘person’ of another.” Although causing any physical harm or injury to the victim—such as a cut, a burn, or a bullet wound—could constitute battery, “actual injury is not required. Even though there is no apparent bruise following harmful contact, the defendant can still be guilty of battery.”

In Washington, DC, aggravated assault is a felony charge, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and $10,000. In this case, the young woman committed aggravated assault by engaging in conduct that put the elderly man “at extreme risk of serious injury”. Even attempted aggravated assault carries a potential 5 year prison sentence and fines of $5,000. (DC Code §22-404.01)

There may also be additional “elder abuse” penalties because she assaulted and battered a senior citizen.

Happily, as seen in a photo posted by Ruptly, the woman was led away in handcuffs. Altogether, 164 protesters were arrested on Saturday at the Capitol and on the steps of the Supreme Court, where the assault on the elderly man took place. (Daily Wire)

Meanwhile, Justice Brett Kavanaugh is already at work!

He hired his clerks — all women — and will participate in oral arguments before the Supreme Court today.
