Crime and Political Punishment in California | #College. | #Students


As California goes, so goes the progressive movement in America, and on Tuesday it suffered a major political rebuke. The recall of left-wing prosecutor Chesa Boudin in San Francisco and the rise of mayoral candidate Rick Caruso in Los Angeles are apt punishment for progressive policies that have produced rising urban anarchy.
With votes still to be counted, voters sent Mr. Boudin packing with some 60% of the vote. The prosecutor had ridden into office as a champion of criminal-justice reform, which in practice turned out to be little or no prosecution for crimes that have made San Francisco streets a showcase for drug abuse, vagrancy, homeless camps, shoplifting and assault on the innocent.
