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.

Chicago man on probation for robbery charged with double homicide

What do you know…another criminal who didn’t follow the laws and received lenient punishment. It’s almost appears that Chiraq’s strict gun control laws are meant to punish law-abiding citizens.

From MyFoxChicago: A 20-year-old man on probation for a robbery conviction is now charged in connection with a Sunday robbery in Chinatown where two men were shot to death when they resisted, police say.

Alvin Thomas, of South Shore, faces two counts of first-degree murder in the early morning shooting Feb. 9 in the 2000 block of South Wells Street, Chicago police said.

Huayi Bian, 36, and Weizhong Xiong, 38, were standing in the parking lot of an apartment complex with a 44-year-old woman about 2:13 a.m. when a man walked up and tried to rob them, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The woman complied, but the men resisted, at which point the man fired multiple shots, police said. Both men were shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. The woman wasn’t hurt.

Thomas was arrested minutes later at 2:27 a.m. in the 2100 block of South Archer Avenue, police said. He is due for a bail hearing Tuesday.

At the time of his arrest, Thomas was on probation for a 2018 robbery charge in Chicago, according to county records. He was released on home electronic monitoring after posting a $5,000 bond, and pleaded guilty to the charge in July 2019. He was sentenced to two years probation with credit for 319 days already served, county records state.

While out on bond, Thomas was charged with manufacture and delivery of cannabis in February 2019, but the charge was dropped the next month, according to county records.

Washington State gun control laws designed to punish law-abiding citizens

Demorats’ gun control laws are conduits to achieving their utopia: Removing firearms from law-abiding citizens.

Washington State (run by demorats) has implemented numerous gun control laws that have had no effect on criminal behaviors.

Earlier this month the Seattle Police Department (SPD) released its annual report on gun violence, and statistics show the number of shootings in 2019 is up from 2018. One of the causes is an increase in gang-related violence.

Instead of addressing the root cause of gun violence, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson believes part of the solution is to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.

Proof that demorats only want to control legal firearms is the fact that known criminals are routinely set free to terrorize tax-paying citizens. There is a severe lack of proper punishment for criminals due to – in my opinion – social justice warriors’ desire for “criminal justice reform.”

Look at what happened in Seattle this week: Three shootings where one person was killed. The majority injured happened at a shooting on Tuesday in downtown Seattle in broad daylight (7 injured, the 1 killed).

Guess who the perps were? “KNOWN GANG MEMBERS.”

MyNorthwest.com has more details about these KNOWN perps:

“KIRO 7’s Amy Clancy reports that police are searching for a pair of 24-year-old male suspects who are both “known to SPD,” according to a source in law enforcement.

Clancy went on to note that court documents reveal both suspects are “‘documented gang members’ with extensive criminal histories.” Those documents detail multiple arrests for robbery, theft, and false statements to a public servant among other charges, for one suspect, while the other had been “booked 11 times since 2014” for theft, domestic violence, a DUI, and violating a no contact order.”

MyNorthwest.com reports that 45 police units were dispatched to the scene at the time of the shooting.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said to expect a strong police present in the area “until further notice.”

Read the whole story here.

Until further notice you can expect that since the criminal justice system does not adequately punish criminals, they will not follow any gun control laws.

And until further notice, you can expect that demorats will continue in their efforts to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right.

This is Chiraq: 14-year-old girl hits victim with pellet gun; victim fires back using handgun & both are arrested

Couple lessons to be learned here: 1) You cannot protect yourself in strict gun-controlled Chiraq unless you have ALL the licenses THEY deem necessary (or you are a criminal and don’t care about gun control laws) and 2) Never meet anyone in person from an online transaction without a buddy in tow.

There’s a third lesson here which is the obvious: Stay far, far away from Chiraq.

From Fox News: A teenage girl who was shot in the chest in a Chicago neighborhood Friday night is now facing an attempted robbery charge after officials said she tried to rob a woman she was meeting for a sale.

The Chicago Police Department said in a news release on Saturday the incident happened around 5:45 p.m. in the city’s Little Village neighborhood, when 21-year-old Araceli Diaz met with the 14-year-old girl after the teenager arranged the meeting to buy a dog.

When the 14-year-old met up with Diaz, officials said the teen pulled out a pellet gun, struck the 21-year-old on the head with it and tried to take the dog without paying for it.

“We’re not sure where they met initially or how they communicated, but all we do know is that the 14-year-old did show up with other intentions and she pulled out a BB gun,” Chicago Police Officer Jose Jara told FOX32.

In response, Diaz then allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot the girl in the chest.

Chicago Police said in a news release the 21-year-old was found to have a valid Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification card, or FOID card, to possess a weapon, but no concealed carry license.

Diaz was subsequently arrested in Cicero about an hour after the shooting and charged with unlawful use of a weapon, according to police.

The 14-year-old was transported to an area hospital where she was treated for her gunshot wound before she was arrested Saturday morning and charged with attempted armed robbery. She is scheduled to appear in juvenile court on Dec. 9.

Chicago police said that Diaz is scheduled to appear in court on Sunday.

“A BB gun can appear like a real gun and to anyone out there it’s gonna appear like a real gun, to the police, and to any individual, and if someone’s carrying and they have their own CCL they may use their own gun to defend themselves,” Jara told FOX32.

Illegal aliens stage robbery/assault in order to obtain U-Visas

Bonus: When these criminals are released from jail for staging this fake crime (if they are convicted/serve any time), they won’t be turned over to ICE for deportation because of Washington State’s sanctuary status.

Amazing that illegal aliens can get away with such flagrant disregard for our laws, courtesy of progressives.

More details about the fake crime here.

Georgia homeowner fatally shoots 3 teens in masks who tried to rob him

Score one for the Second Amendment.

From Fox News: A Georgia homeowner fatally shot three teenagers who were purportedly trying to rob him and two others on Monday night, officials said.

The teenagers — ages 15, 16 and 16 — approached the residence in Conyers, a city roughly 25 miles southeast of Atlanta, with their faces covered in masks, according to the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office.

The trio “attempted to rob three individuals in the front yard” of the home, and one of the teenagers “brandished a gun and fired shots” at those in the front yard.

One of the intended victims of the attempted robbery returned fire, shooting all three teenagers, authorities said in a news release. One of the teenagers died at the scene, while the two others died at a nearby hospital.

Sheriff Eric Levett said deputies responded to the scene after a report of shots fired. When they arrived, the dead teenager was bordering the street and the driveway, and one of the other teens who was shot “was a little bit down the street, where it appears he was running.”

Investigators said the three people who were on the Conyers property and neighbors have been interviewed, but no one has been charged. Levett confirmed two weapons were found at the scene and told reporters it’s possible this could be a “stand-your-ground” type of case, based upon preliminary information.

Witness Carlos Watson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he woke up to the “sounds of gunfire.”

“I heard somebody yell for help … then I heard it again, and that’s when I came outside,” Watson said. “There was one gentleman laid out and our neighbor Mr. Jenkins was helping him out.”

He said the situation seems to have been “a home invasion that went bad for the invaders,” and said the community is a “nice area” that doesn’t see random crime often.

Spike in robberies and mob beatings in demorat Ilhan Omar’s district

From Fox News: Fox News has obtained a series of disturbing videos showing mob-style attacks in downtown Minneapolis in which police say “vulnerable” victims were targeted and brutally beaten for valuables such as cellphones.

Police told Fox News that an “incredible” law enforcement investigation led to the arrest of 16 people in connection to the videos. They face assault and robbery charges, among others.

In one daytime video, a mob can be seen pummeling a man just outside of the Minneapolis Twins’ stadium.

At one point, the attackers run to gain speed and jump on the victim. They ride a bike over him, take off his pants and beat him with a belt. The victim appears to defend himself but is outnumbered and overpowered.

In another gruesome video, two young men appear to be attacked. They’re punched in the face and appear to fight back. One is knocked unconscious.

In a third video, a young man is surrounded by a mob and beaten unconscious. The video appears to show something being taken from his pocket once he’s on the ground.

All of these videos are emerging as the city of Minneapolis is dealing with a crippling shortage of police officers. The chief of police, Medaria Arradondo, has requested 400 additional officers over the next few years to make up for the shortage.

However, some members of Minneapolis’ City Council argue against the money going toward additional officers. Instead, they say the money should go toward other law enforcement and safety programs.

The city’s mayor, Jacob Frey (demorat), has proposed adding 14 additional officers to the force. Police told Fox News the mayor is supportive of the department and the new policing strategies in the city’s downtown.

The shortage of police is so staggering that over the past year the police department was unable to immediately send a squad car to 6,776 priority one emergencies. That includes situations like shots fired, stabbings and sexual assaults. A Minneapolis police website says priority one calls involve “an imminent threat to personal safety, or the loss or damage to property exists.”

Even worse, police were unable to immediately respond to seven “priority zero” calls, including a baby not breathing and a fellow officer facing imminent danger. Priority zero calls, according to the Minneapolis police website, “include those situations where a known crisis exists that threatens the life of an individual. This is the highest possible priority and the fastest possible response is desired. The MECC objective is to have squads en route to the call within 30 seconds of receipt by the dispatcher.”

“To have to look someone in the eye and tell them that we were unable to get there because we do not have enough resources – it’s unacceptable,” Andy Skoogman, the president of Minnesota Police Chiefs Association, told Fox News.

The chair of the city’s safety committee, Alondra Cano, previously told Fox News that the city council acknowledges there is a crisis and is investing and diversifying its force to better represent the community.

“I do appreciate that the mayor has put forward an investment strategy in our department because we can’t walk around with the same broken department since the 1950s,” Cano told Fox News. “We’re thankful that the information is out in the open. We would rather have a truthful conversation than pretend like this isn’t happening.”

Presidential candidate Jay Inslee granted clemency twice to “three-strikes” criminal; perp is now on the run

Habitual criminal Tracy Hoggatt on the lam/Washington State DOC photo

Washington State has a “three-strikes” or “persistent offenders” law meant to confine life-long criminals for punishment of their violent crimes (and to deter other criminals). The one “out” for these criminals is clemency.

In reality, the moonbats that run Washington State care nothing about actually holding perpetual criminals accountable for their actions. See the following examples:

Insanity in Seattle: Homeless man attempts to kidnap child. Guess how many previous arrests/convictions he has…
Liberal utopia of Seattle: Drugstore employees subject to violent assaults as criminals become more brazen
Liberal utopia of Seattle: Prostitutes flooding the streets due to lack of law enforcement
Homeless Seattle man, accused of a stabbing, on the loose after failing to show up for court-appointed treatment program

Last week a three-striker offender was released from the Yakima County jail, after being granted clemency TWICE by Gov. Jay Inslee (demorat). He boarded a bus in Yakima County (presumably with no guardian) but officers were waiting at his destination.

The perp failed to show up to the mandated transition house and has now disappeared. They believed he jumped off in Seattle.

More details from Q13Fox:

“Now, a Department of Corrections warrant has been issued for his arrest and officers are asking for the public’s help to locate him.

Hoggatt had been serving a life sentence after convictions for Robbery 2nd Degree, Assault 2nd Degree and Theft 2nd Degree. He was released on clemency on July 23, 2018.

The news article included Hoggatt’s statement to the clemency board. “I will not let any one of you in the community down,” Hoggatt wrote. “I will demonstrate my ability to be a law-abiding, successful, responsible, trustworthy, and resourceful citizen. The possibilities are endless if we trust in God.”

According to The Daily News Online, Gov. Jay Inslee commuted Hoggatt’s sentence on Jan 16, 2017, finding that Hoggatt had “taken steps to turn his life around and developed a strong sense of empathy.”

A little more than three months later, Hoggatt was taken into custody again on October 31, 2018 for violating the terms of his release by consuming alcohol, not living at an approved address and associating with a known criminal/drug user. He remained in custody for 10 months until the Governor and clemency board reviewed the case and released him again on Tuesday.

Hoggatt has history of eluding law enforcement. In 1995, Hoggatt went to Canada for 6 months to avoid trial in Cowlitz County for a burglary because he was facing life without the possibility of parole. He was arrested when he returned in 1996 and Burglary and Bail Jumping.

Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot holds “accountability” meeting after another weekend of gun violence

There is no such thing as “accountability” in Chiraq.

Demorats have been in charge since 1931 and yet the gun violence CONTINUES.

From MyFoxChicago: City leaders met Monday following another violent weekend.

The second weekend of June saw 39 people shot, three of them fatally. Police were also able to arrest 36 people on gun-related charges and remove 115 illegal weapons from the street.

Since Mayor Lori Lightfoot took over, “Accountability Monday” has become a weekly affair between the mayor and Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. Also meeting with Mayor Lightfoot Monday was all 22 police district commanders to go over the weekend violence numbers.

“There’s nothing wrong with having another set of eyes looking at what we are doing,” said Johnson.

A police spokesperson says officers also arrested four robbery suspects and two shooting offenders over the weekend.

In hopes of decreasing violence numbers, the mayor and superintendent have announced the creation of “Business Liaison Officers.”

Each of the 22 districts will have a designated officer to be in direct communication between local businesses and the police.

“All those officers will have cell phones, so instead of those businesses trying to reach out to the commanders personally, they have an officer that they can go to 24 hours a day and report if they need some help,” said Johnson.
