SHOCKING proposal from a number of King County Deputy Prosecutors.
They no longer want to prosecute eluding the police, burglary 2, and auto theft, among other crimes.
This is absolute insanity. If you think burglaries and auto thefts are out of control now, just wait until the criminals know they won’t be charged and they will even be free to run from the police with impunity, placing the community at risk as they flee.
The governor has the authority to direct the attorney general to prosecute local crimes if the local prosecutor is unable or unwilling to do so.
I look forward to working with the next Republican governor to restore some semblance of order and justice for the people of King County by—to put it bluntly—doing Dan Satterberg’s job for him.
