As Americans, we have the constitutional right, through our legislators, to pass criminal laws. But over the past few years progressives have effectively nullified this right by weaponizing attorneys general as well as county and district attorneys’ offices. Simply put, progressive prosecutors from around the country have promoted their preferred political agendas by picking and choosing which laws they want to enforce, and selectively deciding which persons or groups they want to enforce them against.
Examples abound: refusing to prosecute smash and grab thieves that destroy businesses; the New York district attorney downgrading armed robbery to a misdemeanor; thugs and looters taking control of Seattle and Portland with no consequences; and the Department of Justice turning a blind eye to the blood and violence on the southern border. I am deeply troubled by this trend. In my view, it is nothing short of an all-out assault on the Constitution and the rule of law.
