Local governments constantly rewrite their criminal codes.
They get outdated through the passage of time, state and federal requirements change, and society changes so codes constantly are being updated.
But the current effort at that in Washington, D.C., is being mocked for the plan’s attempt to decriminalize public urination.
“Assume that there’ll be a lot more burglaries, carjackings and robberies,” jested Off the Press, “Not to mention public urination.”
The full report is a few days old and at WTOP it explains a D.C. Council committee is working on the project.
“There’s widespread agreement that it should be done, and nearly all of it is without controversy,” the report said. But it cited objections from Mayor Muriel Bowser and Police Chief Robert Contee III because there are some things they don’t like.
Bowser said her concerns were with “the decriminalization of certain public nuisances, such as urinating in public or noise violations,” the report said.
Then there are her worries over things she thinks should be counted as policy changes, not criminal code functions. Those would be an expansion of the Second Look plan, and the proposal to make misdemeanor defendants eligible for jury trials.
She cited the possible overload on courts.
She said the district now is “catching up” on felony trials, and that isn’t supposed to be accomplished for a couple years.
Others raised concerns about new definitions for burglary.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
