Seattle City Attorney Peter Holmes is lenient with repeat offenders. Last February in a blog post entitled, “How many convictions does it take for Seattle City Attorney to place a homeless criminal in jail after his latest assault?,” I told you how the goot attorney would not charge and throw in a jail a man who had 72 convictions (including 14 felonies). This was after the perp attempted ANOTHER assault.
Just par for the course with these progressives who want to keep criminals free in the name of “criminal justice reform.”
I’m sure 29-year-old repeat offender Ardalla Jama is quite pleased with Holmes’ decision. Jama was released from King County Jail last weekend after attacking a security guard in Seattle (he was given a conditional release from jail). Jama was re-arrested a few hours later for a brutal attack that ended with that victim being hospitalized in intensive care. Details from MSN:
“Ardalla Jama, 29, is facing several charges in connection with a fight Saturday night at City Hall Park, which is located a few blocks away from the county jail.
Prosecutors said Jama allegedly kicked and stomped the victim’s head after he fell to the ground, and a witness said Jama continued his attack on the victim even after he lost consciousness. The victim, whose identity was not immediately disclosed, suffered significant wounds to his face and head. Information about his condition was pending.
Following that attack, Jama was again taken into custody, marking his sixth arrest so far this year in cases that often involve violence.”

Jama’s has previously been arrested for assault, malicious mischief, harassment and property destruction. He was also charged with felony harassment in 2017, but was found incompetent to stand trial due to concerns about his mental fitness.
Seattle, like many demorat-run cities who are soft on criminals, has seen an increase in shootings and crime in general. Seattle’s homicides are the highest in decades and burglaries, arson, and motor vehicle thefts are also up.
With demorats in charge, this is what you get when you want “progress” in your city.
