The George Soros-backed New Orleans area top prosecutor and his mother has suffered the consequences of far-left policies.
District Attorney Jason Williams, who was elected pledging bail reform and social justice, was recently carjacked.
“DA Williams and his mother were unharmed, and both thank the [New Orleans Police Department] for their hard work tonight and every night responding to crime victims,” district attorney’s office spokesperson Keith Lampkin told Fox 8.
From Fox News:
Police said two armed suspects approached Williams’ black Lincoln Navigator at about 10 p.m. on Race Street in the Lower Garden District.
After they took the SUV, the suspect could not go very far, Williams told the station, because he still had the key fob.
Police said the SUV was recovered in the uptown portion of New Orleans.
On Tuesday, FOX 8 interviewed Williams at his office, and he said the two suspects did not appear to be juveniles.
Williams said the suspect had high-powered automatic weapons and took items from the SUV, including some of his mother’s belongings, though he would not go into specifics.
“I think it’s important to reiterate that my mother and I are just a small fraction of the number of people impacted by violence in this city,” he said. “We have to collectively work on crime-prevention efforts, policing efforts and our prosecution efforts.”
According to reports from police the suspects may have carjacked a 22 year old woman about 30 minutes after carjacking the DA.
One his campaign backers was billionaire Democrat donor George Soros who donated $220,000 to a PAC supporting Williams. Williams ran on a social justice platform and wanted to find “alternatives to incarceration” for criminals claiming that the current bail system is “ineffective and unfair.”
“Being more selective about prosecutions will allow us to focus on the crimes that matter most to all of us,” Williams said after being sworn in. “We’ve got to go beyond punishment and invest in our community.”
It is a good thing that DA Williams and his mother are safe but his policies appear to be a complete failure.
