Radical prosecutors are implementing soft-on-crime policies that leave citizens at the mercy of armed thugs.
As a result, crime rates are soaring in cities all across the country.
But one Republican Governor is now going after far-Left prosecutors who refuse to do their jobs.
Georgia is now counting itself among a growing number of states that have had enough of soft-on-crime prosecutors.
Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA) just signed a bill into law that created a commission to discipline and potentially remove prosecutors who refuse to do their jobs.
“I am not going to stand idly by as rogue or incompetent prosecutors refuse to uphold the law,” Kemp said at the signing ceremony. “Today we are sending a message that we will not forfeit public safety for prosecutors to let criminals off the hook.”
According to the Associated Press, Georgia’s new law coincides with efforts to remove prosecutors in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, and Pennsylvania.
One tough provision of the new Georgia law is that prosecutors will be required to look at every case with probable cause.
A common Democrat tactic is to dismiss entire categories of cases outright, and this law would put a stop that practice.
Some experts caution that considering every case individually is unrealistic since prosecutors turn down a lot more cases than they accept.
But the hope is that the new law will change the behavior of prosecutors.
And Democrats are livid over it.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis called the measure a “racist attack after voters elected 14 nonwhite DAs in the state.”
Deborah Gonzalez, District Attorney for Athens-Clarke and Oconee counties, said “I strongly oppose an excessive and unnecessary commission as district attorneys are already held accountable under existing laws and through the current democratic process of holding elections.”
The Associated Press contends that “some have viewed the law as Republican retribution against Willis, who is considering criminal charges against former President Donald Trump over interference in Georgia’s 2020 election.”
The new law, which is part of a growing national trend in putting a check on prosecutors who refuse to do their jobs, is slated to take effect on July 1.
Hopefully, this law – and others like it – will help reverse the spike in crime and restore law-and-order in America.
