Another far-left California DA may face recall attempt: Report

 April 23, 2023

Last year saw San Francisco voters recall far-left District Attorney Chesa Boudin after crime and disorder in the city had spiraled out of control.

According to the Washington Examiner, another Democratic prosecutor may be facing an attempt to oust her as well. 

Controversial plea deal offered to accused triple murderer

Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price has been criticized for a series of controversial moves, including her decision to offer accused triple murderer Delonzo Logwood a 15-year plea deal.

Fox News reported this month that Price reacted angrily when Alameda County Superior Court Judge Mark McCannon rejected the proposed offer.

She accused McCannon of having "overstepped his boundaries as a judicial officer" and filed a motion to have him disqualified "from hearing any criminal cases being prosecuted by our office."

What's more, the widow of a security guard who was killed while attempting to protect a local television reporter isn't happy either.

DA supports "non-carceral forms of accountability"

She fears that the individuals who have been charged in connection with her husband's murder will not be punished to the full extent of the law.

Meanwhile, Price is under fire from the National Asian Pacific Islander Prosecutors Association over how she handled the 2021 killing of 2-year-old Jasper Wu.

Trevor Green, Johnny Jackson, and Ivory Bivens were all charged following Price's death, Price has released a statement saying that her office favors an outcome which would minimize the possibility of jail time.

"Our office is currently working on a partnership with the Asian Law Caucus to support AAPI victims of violence in ways that open up broader possibilities for healing and non-carceral forms of accountability," Price's office was quoted as saying in a statement.

Asian group lashes out at Price

That stance doesn't appear to be unique, as ABC 7 News obtained a memo which said Price is planning to eliminate sentencing enhancements for gun-related crimes.

Further, ABC 7 also published emails in which Price suggested that members of the Asian community were "misinformed" about her policies.

Those comments were condemned as being offensive in a statement put out on April 6 by the National Asian Pacific Islander Prosecutors Association.

"Instead of expressing sympathy for Jasper Wu’s family, D.A. Price condescendingly commented that defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty and that '[s]ome people don’t know about the basic principles of constitutional law that govern our office and the justice system," the group declared.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
