Boston Democratic mayor says criminals should not be prosecuted for theft, gang registry should be abolished

The mayor wants police personnel files related to “use of force” to be made public. Opponents say this could put officers at risk.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu pushed for a soft on crime agenda, arguing against prosecution of criminal acts such as theft.

Before being elected as mayor, Wu completed the “2021 Boston Mayoral Candidate Questions” of Progressive Massachusetts, an organization that ranks and tracks how progressive elected officials really are. According to the website of the group, “it intends to transform Massachusetts as a bold lab for progressive state initiatives.”

Wu’s document outlines her most progressive positions, such as her support of non-citizens to vote in Boston local elections.

Washington’s warning to Christians

George Washington knew that it would take Christians and Jews working together to ensure Biblical values are a cornerstone of our country. And it’s time once again we work together and lead the charge to restore Biblical values throughout this nation. Join the Coalition of Jewish Values as we restore this great nation back to the Biblical principles our Founding Fathers intended!

The Mayor was asked: “Do you support closing the Boston Police Gang database?”

She replied, “Yes.”

Wu was then asked if she supported the do-not prosecute list created by former Suffolk County District Attorney, Rachael Rolleins.

DA Rollins issued a policy memo identifying over a dozen crimes that she believes should not be prosecuted. These crimes included shoplifting and larceny as well as disorderly conduct and receiving stolen property. They also included breaking and entering and causing property damage.

After an ethics investigation found Rollins had committed “egregious ethical violations” and “abuses of power,” the DA joined Biden’s administration before resigning.

Do you support the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office’s don’t prosecute list and expanded approach in dealing with low-level crimes? Progressive Mass asked, “YES/NO?”

Wu replied, “Yes.”

Wu has also pledged to reallocate some of the budget for police towards other priorities in the city as mayor. She believes that law enforcement should “demilitarize.”

Wu stated that police officers should not be able to use tear gases, rubber bullets and attack dogs.

The Progressive Mass survey then asked: “Do you think that BPD officers are affiliated with or have sympathies for white supremacist groups?” YES/NO If so, how would you combat this issue as Mayor?”

Wu replied, “Yes.” I’ve advocated terminating [Boston Police Department] staff who were involved in the Capitol Insurrection of January 6th.”

She also wanted the public to see personnel files relating to the “use of force,” which, according to opponents, can put officers at risk.

She said: “We must ensure that contract terms allow the sharing of information with the public about officers’ misconduct and use of force, and also permit disciplinary records to become publicly accessible in compliance with privacy laws.”

Fox News Digital’s comment request to Wu’s office was not immediately responded to.

In the past, critics have said that she has used “Nixonian techniques” because her administration had admitted to creating a database of her loudest critics, and giving it to local authorities.

The report raised questions about whether Wu or her administration were trying to intimidate or silence her critics. Many of them had protested in front of her house.

Wu, when she was elected, opened offices devoted to “Food Justice”, “Black Male Advancement”, “LGBT+ Advancement”, and “Worker Empowerment,” to make a “more equitable city for future generations.”

Wu has been accused by critics of being less inclusive to Whites, which led to numerous complaints filed with the Attorney General of the State. In December, the Democratic Mayor was criticized for sending invitations to a holiday event that was only intended for members of the city council who were not white.

The email was sent by mistake to all members. It said: “Honorable Members: On behalf of the Mayor Michelle Wu, we cordially invite both you and your guest to the Electeds of Color Holiday Party.”

Denise DosSantos apologized 15 minutes after Wu’s email was sent and clarified that it was intended only for minority councilors. She did not apologize, however, for the party she planned that excluded White city officials.

DosSantos wrote: “I apologized for my previous email about a Holiday Party tomorrow.” “I sent that email to everyone accidentally and I apologize for any offense or confusion it may have caused. Sorry for any confusion that this may have caused.

After receiving discrimination complaints, Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Campbell declined to investigate the “electeds Of Color” holiday party of Boston Mayor.
