San Fran DA official says crime surge fears linked to racism

I wonder if San Fran DA Chesa Boudin knows one of his chief Deputies is either addicted to drugs or is seriously mentally ill?  Kate Chatfield is saying that the “fear of surging crime” is based on racism.  Actually, the reality of crime is up.  Murder by more than 30%, car jackings by up to 756%.  So far the “fear of crime” has caused 17 drug stores to close—no fear, the shoplifting losses were great an the police stood by and watched.

Families are doing the smart thing for the health and safety of their family—leaving town before they have a hospital or cemetery visit.   To scream “racism” shows the mental meltdown or excessive drug use.  If you were a victim or a crime—or you lost your job because your employer shutdown, you would not consider yourself a victim of racism.  You have become a victim of corrupt/radical totalitarian government.

San Francisco DA official says crime surge fears linked to racism

Reports of vehicle break-ins are up by between 100% and 750% in parts of San Francisco

By Peter Hasson | Fox News, 7/5/21   

Fox News’ Claudia Cowan reports from San Francisco, where business owners are frustrated by brazen instances of shoplifting.

A senior official in the San Francisco District Attorney’s office linked fears of a crime surge to racism in a tweet that raised eyebrows Sunday evening. 

Kate Chatfield, a senior director in far-left District Attorney Chesa Boudin’s office, downplayed safety concerns amid a nationwide crime spike

Chatfield was reacting to a Twitter user who said that “every single one of my friends right now is considering leaving” San Francisco due to crime fears. “My friends are scared for their children, and their husbands are scared for their wives,” the user wrote. 

“‘Husbands are scared for their wives’ —-your reminder that the ‘crime surge’ crowd shares the same ideology as The Birth of a Nation,” Chatfield fired back, referring to an early 20th century White supremacist film. 

Chatfield locked her Twitter account – making it so only her followers can see her tweets – after her comment about crime fears drew sharp criticism online. Boudin’s office didn’t immediately return Fox News’ request for comment. 

Reports of vehicle break-ins in San Francisco were up by between 100% and over 750% in parts of the Golden City, according to the police department’s most recent monthly statistics. 

The number of thefts from vehicles reported citywide in the month of May was more than double, from 923 in 2020 to 1891 the same month in 2021, San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) data shows

The department has not yet released statistics for the month of June.

  1. Paint Brush says

    Well, they got one thing right, the SF DA’s office, the Mayor, and the entire SF government are so rascist against police and any kind of civil common sense that they are indeed raising the crime against fear. Perhaps the enitre police department should go on leave for a year and let all those brilliant government minds deal with the crime.

  2. Will they at least arrest criminals of European and Jewish descent?
