Social Justice in Dallas County Means Never Having to Say “I’m Guilty”
It’s really difficult to understate the damage that Barack Obama’s two social justice Attorneys General did to America. Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch both redefined “prosecutorial discretion” through the lens of socialist dictators. This has encouraged liberal prosecutors across the country to follow their lead. Why should I enforce the ‘racist’ laws passed by my state legislature when I can simply rewrite them on my own?
Instead of simply enforcing the letter of the law, leftwing socialist prosecutors who were elected in recent years (thanks in part to generous donations from George Soros) are now selectively enforcing the law, based solely on the color of the perpetrator’s skin.
Prosecutor Kim Foxx’s sudden and bewildering exoneration of Jussie Smollett is the most high-profile example of this in recent months. Smollett, you’ll remember, committed a fake hate crime against himself and blamed white, MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters for attempting to lynch him. The perpetrators, it turned out, were two of Smollett’s friends who he had paid to beat him up, so he could stoke racial hatred in America and negotiate a higher salary out of his sympathetic TV producers. But Foxx’s delivery of a Get-Out-of-Prosecution-Free card to Jussie Smollett pales in comparison to what Dallas County Prosecutor John Creuzot has done.
Creuzot has declared a blanket amnesty for a laundry list of crimes, which should have gun owners scratching their heads and reviewing the laws surrounding the Castle doctrine and “stand your ground.” Here’s a summary and paraphrase of socialist king Creuzot’s announcement of his blanket amnesty for crooks:
“Laws be racist! This is obvious because I’m required to prosecute way more blacks and illegal aliens than whites. New policy: Social justice! I’ll personally and single-handedly rewrite the laws, so that I no longer have to prosecute as many illegal aliens and blacks. This will make Dallas County jails more diverse, through a new policy that promotes more inclusivity towards prosecuting white people, while not sending as many blacks and illegal aliens to jail for crimes. Kamala 2020 baby!”
Again, that’s a paraphrase so you will understand the gist of Creuzot’s reasoning behind the new policy. Here are the crimes that he’ll no longer be prosecuting, in order to ensure that fewer blacks and illegal aliens will end up in jail:
First-Offense Marijuana, THC Possession and Trace Drug Possession: If you’re caught with marijuana on a first-time offense in Dallas County, or THC or various powdered narcotics in trace amounts, Creuzot does allow for one exception under which he will prosecute you: If you have a gun in your possession at the time.
Criminal Trespass: (Also known as the “Starbucks Bathroom Policy.”) Creuzot will still prosecute trespassers if they go in your house (for now), although it’s unclear what he’d do if they’re in your back yard. Otherwise, he says it’s a waste of time to prosecute most of these cases – because they’re just homeless people. So what if a hobo is stinking up your store, peeing in aisle 7 and driving customers away through his unwanted, disruptive and belligerent presence. Don’t call Creuzot, because he’s not going to do anything about it.
Driving While License Suspended (DWLI): Creuzot’s logic: If someone can’t pay their fines from all those previous drunk-driving convictions, why add stress to their lives by prosecuting them again for driving without a license?
Theft of Items Worth Less Than $750: This is every petty criminal’s dream come true. A brand-new Windows 10 computer with a fancy touch-screen monitor will run you $699 if you bother to pay for it. Sorry, store owners, you’ll just have to eat that loss because Prosecutor John Creuzot is out for social justice. This is like a license to shoplift. Even if the cops catch you afterwards, you’ll only be in jail for a maximum of 24 hours because Creuzot has instructed all the prosecutors in Dallas County working under him to let you go.
The only good news from this story is that Texas Governor Greg Abbott is looking into whether he has the authority to fire a County Prosecutor. Here’s hoping Abbott succeeds. Meanwhile, residents in Dallas County need to make sure that everything they own is nailed down, because Creuzot’s office will not prosecute criminals for the most basic and obvious crimes (unless the perp is white).
