Restorative Justice: California Puts Criminals before the Safety of Their Most Vulnerable Citizens

This morning, my dad, who is almost 80, was parking his car in a busy shopping district of San Francisco.  He saw another car trying to park in the space in front of him, coming right at him.  He started honking, thinking that the other driver was not paying attention, but the other car continued moving until it hit my dad’s car.  My dad came out of his car, as the other driver did – a large African American man in his 50s.

“What are you doing?” – asked my dad.  “I was honking, didn’t you hear me?”

“Shut your dirty mouth, old man, or you’ll get in trouble!” – said the other man.  And as he walked away, he yelled:  “I don’t care about your stupid bumper!”

My dad just stood there.  He knew that if he called the police, nobody would come.

Car thefts in San Francisco have become such a common occurrence that the residents are expecting their cars broken into when they leave.

“While walking alongside cars parked on the street, it’s common to see handmade signs attached to the inside of the windows pleading with smash-and-grabbers not to break in. Some note the number of times they’ve been broken into, others disclose that there is nothing valuable in the car worth breaking the window for. Shattered glass strewn across sidewalks and along curbs is also common.”

A reporter was recently assaulted at gunpoint while documenting these crimes. Don’t call the police. If nobody is seriously hurt, the police won’t come.

Since proposition 47 decriminalized shoplifting up to $950, San Francisco stores became the target of rampant crime. Recently, 17 Walgreens stores closed their doors in downtown San Francisco due to out-of-control shoplifting.

“People are scared to go into these stores — seniors, people with disabilities, children. It’s just happening brazenly.”

Other stores are instructing their workers to stay out of shoplifters’ way. The police won’t come.

We all have seen multiple horrific videos of elderly Asians attacked in the streets of San Francisco by violent criminals. Are these victims targeted because they are Asian, or is it because they are elderly

The media is heavily invested in promoting the anti-Asian hate crime narrative, while conveniently concealing the truth: it’s not the hated “white supremacy” that is responsible for the rampant crime rise, but restorative justice policy. San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin, Los Angeles DA George Gascon, and California Governor Gavin Newsom releasing violent criminals from prisons are leaving our most vulnerable citizens – the elderly, the women, and the children – to live in fear for their lives.

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.
