Last month Chesa Boudin, known for soft-on-crime policies was voted out as the San Francisco DA. Brooke Jenkins has been appointed as interim district attorney by Mayor London Breed.
Boudin was booted from office through a massive recall effort. His critics blame the former DA’s approach for San Francisco’s rising crime rate. The city has become mired in burglaries, auto smash-and-grabs as well as more violent crime. Sadly over 1000 addicts a year die on the streets of this city. And drugs are everywhere.
Soft-on-crime meet law-and-order
Brooke Jenkins has been appointed as interim district attorney by Mayor London Breed.
In 2021, Jenkins served as an assistant district attorney in San Francisco for over seven years.
She quit in protest of the policies. And became the progressive face of the recall effort that took down Boudin.
Jenkins, a woman of color, claimed that Boudin was refusing to follow the law. And was “coddling career criminals, failing victims, and mismanaging the DA’s office.”
