Chesa Boudin, San Francisco’s notoriously progressive district attorney, announced Wednesday that his office will no longer support cash bail, becoming the latest law enforcement figure to come out against the practice.
Instead of asking judges to set cash bail as a condition of a defendant’s release before trial, Boudin’s office will instead proffer a “risk assessment” as to whether or not a defendant is likely to abscond or pose a threat to public safety. The abolition of bail was one of Boudin’s main promises during his campaign for D.A. last year, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The article goes on to state the following:
“For years I’ve been fighting to end this discriminatory and unsafe approach to pretrial detention,” Boudin said. “From this point forward, pretrial detention will be based on public safety, not on wealth.”
San Francisco’s police union reportedly blasted Chesa Boudin’s decision to drop the cash bail policy, saying, “San Franciscans will pay a heavy price for it.”
The Free Beacon noted that Boudin is the son of jailed left-wing terrorists and Weather Underground members David Gilbert and Kathy Boudin, who were sent to prison when Chesa was an infant, for their role in an armed heist in New York in 1981 in which three people were killed.
“He was raised by two other well-known Weathermen, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn,” a report by The Guardian states.
In a campaign video while he was running for office last year, Boudin declared, “Growing up, I had to go through a metal detector and steel gates just to give my parents a hug.”
Boudin worked for a short time after college as a translator for the late president of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez.
During his campaign, Boudin declared that, if elected, he would not prosecute quality-of-life offenses like “public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, and blocking a sidewalk.
Today we announced a formal policy ending the use of money bail by our prosecutors as a condition for pretrial detention.
