Doug Jones Headed Soros-Funded Project To Transform Federal Prosecutors Into Social Justice Warriors

Jones used language reminiscent of the Obama administration’s infamous interagency memos that enacted “prosecutorial discretion” – which was widely regarded as de facto amnesty – when it came to bringing charges against young illegal aliens.

The report itself goes on to recommend that “given their enormous power and discretion over charging and sentencing decisions, U.S. Attorneys possess a unique lever to spread change.”

The report states: “Prosecutors are well-positioned to create opportunities to improve public safety while also reducing the nation’s incarceration footprint. They are granted unique authority to make charging decisions, enter cooperation agreements, accept pleas and frequently dictate sentences or sentencing ranges.”


So, was “prosecutorial discretion” used by the prosecutor in the Kate Steinle case? People are blaming the outcome on the prosecutor presenting the wrong question in the case.

This seems to be a classic example of prosecutorial overreach.They pushed hard for a first degree murder verdict, which requires not only proving that the defendant killed the victim, but that he did it intentionally, and that it was premeditated (planned or thought out beforehand).

Focusing their strategy on the lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter would have allowed the prosecutors to simply argue that Garcia Zarate acted in a criminally negligent way that resulted in Steinle’s death: he knew the object was a gun, he knew guns are dangerous, he should have known not to point it in the direction of people, etc.

It sure seems to me that there was a good argument for manslaughter here. But did the prosecutor press that home? I wasn’t there, but it would not surprise me if they didn’t

“You have to prosecute a case with the evidence you have, and that’s what the prosecution did,” said Hadar Aviram, a criminal law professor at UC Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. “I think in this case, there just wasn’t the evidence.”

Judges protect 'sanctuary city' from shooting liability
Says Kate Steinle's family cannot sue
Published: 7 hours ago

(Washington Examiner) A federal appeals court ruled Monday the parents of Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in 2015, cannot sue San Francisco for the ?sanctuary city?s? failure to tell immigration officials about the shooter?s release.

Steinle?s parents alleged San Francisco and the city?s former sheriff shared the blame for their daughter?s death because officials did not notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement when Jose Ines Garcia Zarate got out of jail.

Garcia Zarate had been deported five times prior to killing Steinle and was released from jail three months before the shooting.

On Monday, a panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court's 2017 dismissal of the family's claims.

"As the main opinion properly acknowledges, the events underlying this case are tragic," the court filing states. "And some of Plaintiffs' claims remain to be litigated in the district court. We hold only that, Under California law, the state officials are immune from suit."
