The newly sworn in District Attorney for Los Angeles, who was heavily supported by Progressive billionaire George Soros, immediate embarked on a campaign to “re-imagine” a neutered judiciary by starving it of cases, regardless of the crime committed.
Newly elected Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced broad policy changes Monday almost immediately after being sworn into office.
Two aspects of those policy changes include the end of cash bail in America’s largest court system and a moratorium on his prosecutors seeking sentencing enhancements in nearly all cases. Gascón said he intends to end misdemeanor prosecutions of most first-time, nonviolent offenders.
Gascón also followed through on two radical campaign promises. He barred his prosecutors from seeking the death penalty in new cases and he ended the practice of trying juveniles as adults.
The new District Attorney’s policy changes have already created some pushback from the corps of 1,200 deputy district attorneys who will now be bound to Gascón’s agenda. Some Deputy DAs have privately complained that Gascón crafted most of these new policies without consultation or input from those who actually do the litigation in his office.
NEW: L.A.'s new District Attorney George Gascon being inaugurated & making major announcements today.
No more death penalty, an end to cash bail, getting rid of all sentencing enhancements (gang, three strikes, etc), disbanding of the special circumstances committee (1/2) @FOXLA

Soros has spent millions of dollars backing Marxist-Progressive prosecutors from coast to coast in an attempt to re-shaping or “re-imagine” the American criminal justice system.
Some pundits believe that his goal is to put enough District Attorneys and Attorney Generals in place to starve the judicial system of cases so that a natural effort to defund the judiciary comes into play. In that event, they say, it would be easy to execute a Cloward-Piven strategy to collapse the many State judicial systems, creating a crisis that only the federal government can attend to.
Soros has also launched election mechanisms to elect Secretaries of State. Known commonly as the Secretary of States Project, he sought to place Progressives like Dana Nessel of Michigan and Kathy Boockvar of Pennsylvania into the offices that oversee the certifications of elections.
We are witnessing the poison fruit of his efforts in that project as our contested elections play out in those and other states.
