Dallas D.A. plans to stop prosecuting thefts under $750 to help ‘people of color’
I'd heard rumors about this.

LINK

quote:

Black Dallas District Attorney John Creuzot, who ran on a platform of ending mass incarceration (i.e. stopping police from arresting black and brown criminals) has now introduced sweeping reforms to stop police Dallas County from prosecuting theft of personal items worth less than $750.

All to help “people of color and people who are poor” from going to jail. [Dallas DA reveals plan for ‘ending mass incarceration’ for petty crimes, slashing probation and bail, Dallas News, April 11, 2019]


This isn't going to work out like he thinks it will. People in urban areas already complain about "food deserts" because shop owners don't want to set up in high crime areas. Also, isn't $750 kinda high? Imagine how many crab claws Jameis Winston could have made out with at that threshold.

Also, think about how bad the patio pirating is going to become when this practice gets underway.

That's a first step to disaster.

Literally the inmates are running the asylum. Instead of making people do better, let’s just give up and let them do what they want.

I think this is part of the reparations plan.

So fricking dumb. What is the logic behind this? That everyone stealing stuff is only stealing because they need to? The soft bigotry of low expectations is disgusting.

He said it's to help people of color. Will white people stealing stuff less than $750 be prosecuted?

Okay, everybody. I got a "group of friends" who can get their hands on merchandise valued at up to $749.99. Get your orders in now to avoid the Christmas rush.

This seems like a very bad idea.

So, we’ve now decriminalized theft for black and brown people.

Yeah, this will work out well.

Who needs a job? I could steal half that in cash and the other half in goods every day and live a pretty awesome life.

But I am white so who knows if the Jim-Bo laws will work for us PONC.

I'm at least 33% native american. So you're saying I don't have to have drawbacks to my bad behavior?

Retail businesses' insurance rates are about to go through the roof
