It appears that the Alzheimer’s patient in the White House has nominated Boston’s Suffolk County DA Rachael Rollins to be U.S. Attorney for Maskachusetts.
I don’t have time to write something new about this now, so I will take an excerpt from a post I did 2 years ago that included some comments about Rachael Rollins:
(From July 11, 2019)
One of Ayanna Pressley’s ideological cohorts, Boston’s Suffolk County DA Rachael Rollins, is one of those prosecutors who has dropped many cases or reduced charges to prevent prison time supposedly non-violent crimes such as shoplifting, but also, according to the Boston Globe, 11 assault or assault and battery charges. That’s not exactly non-violent.
In one of those cases, a guy was accused of punching his wife in the face. In another case, a guy assaulted a lady and her dog and gave the lady fractured skull and other injuries, “traumatic brain injury, speech and vision impairments, permanent hearing loss in one ear, vertigo, and other serious medical issues.” They gave him a “two-year suspended sentence with three years probation, and (he) was ordered to stay away from the victim...”
In an op-ed, Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe wrote that Rollins is one of those “social justice” DAs, and “that we should exempt groups of people from having to obey the law is an insult to them and a destructive form of pandering, because it suggests that these people are lesser beings than those we expect to obey the law.”
Rollins responds by stating, “If the person presents with mental health issues, substance use disorder, homelessness, or poverty, we’re going to pause just for a moment to see who is this person in front of us … Before branding someone with a criminal record, we just want to pause if they have some of those characteristics.”
No, Rachael, in a civilized society you don’t physically attack someone, or violate anyone’s person or property. “Mental health issues, substance use disorder, homelessness, or poverty” are irrelevant to someone acting on his own free will to hurt others.
If this is the way the “Justice” system is going in America, then it’s time to privatize that (as well as everything else!).
