"San Francisco Justice"?




NO JUSTICE for ordinary people - while criminals are protected


You thought only Hillary & her people were getting special laws, special treatment


Now the privilege-of-breaking-serious laws, has been extended to an Illegal alien, who committed murder.






Jurors Thursday afternoon acquitted the illegal immigrant accused of killing Kate Steinle as she walked with her father on a crowded San Francisco pier of all charges except for felony possession of a firearm.

UPDATE: Trump Calls Steinle Verdict ‘A Complete Travesty Of Justice’; Renews Call For Border Wall

A spokesperson for the Superior Court of California made the announcement that the jury had reached a verdict shortly after 3 p.m. Shortly after 4:30 p.m., the shocking verdict was announced that Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty of all charges except for the gun possession charge.


And President Trump, is hopping mad.




A San Francisco jury acquitted an illegal immigrant Thursday charged with killing Kate Steinle, the 32-year-old woman whose death President Trump used to justify his proposed border wall and his crackdown on “sanctuary cities.”

Steinle was shot in the back as she and her father strolled along Pier 14 in San Francisco on July 1, 2015. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a much-deported illegal immigrant from Mexico, had been released from jail, where he was being held on a drug charge, even though federal immigration authorities had sought to detain him.

The case was one of the most politicized criminal trials in years, a fact the judge instructed the jurors to ignore.

In a tweet hours after Thursday’s verdict, Trump called it “disgraceful.”

“No wonder the people of our Country are so angry with Illegal Immigration,” he wrote.

Ordinary people do not matter in CA anymore





What is 'Kate's Law?'


The bill, named after a woman who was killed by an illegal immigrant, seeks to toughen punishments on people who reenter the U.S. illegally


Long before the trial, the case was a major rallying cry for conservatives, including Trump, who during his campaign for the White House called Steinle one of “countless Americans” who “would be alive today if not for the open border policies” of the administration of President Barack Obama — “non enforcement policies that allow thousands of criminal aliens to freely roam our streets, walk around, do whatever they want to do, crime all over the place.”

That followed his June, 2015 campaign kickoff, in which he memorably complained: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I a


He and other Republicans championed what became known as Kate’s Law, named after Steinle, which would enhance penalties for convicted and deported criminals who reenter the United States illegally. It passed the House but did not advance in the Senate.

Justice CAN win... even in CA


DOJ files arrest warrant for illegal immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle case...


The arrest warrant was originally drafted in 2015 and amended this week to include violations related to the charges of a felon in possession of a firearm, involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon, all of which were filed after the defendant's initial arrest, according to Friday's warrant.

Officials at the Department of Justice told Fox News that there is an existing federal detainer that requires Zarate to be remanded into the custody of the U.S. Marshals to be transported to the Western District of Texas pursuant to the arrest warrant.

After the verdict, U.S. immigration officials announced late Thursday that Zarate would be deported.

"Following the conclusion of this case, ICE will work to take custody of Mr. Garcia Zarate and ultimately remove him from the country," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.

While the Illegal Immigrants FLOOD In...




LA homeless encampments grow and grow...


High above the Metro Gold Line tracks, a string of lean-tos that Lee Brown calls his “three-bedroom condominium” is tethered to a hilltop fence in Elysian Park.

The four-man, two-dog tent city — one of several camps in the 600-acre park north of downtown Los Angeles — has remained intact for at least two years, passed from one homeless person to the next, Brown said.

Last year, Los Angeles put money behind various efforts to curb encampments like Brown’s until the city’s ambitious housing construction program takes hold.

Funding for one strategy — camp cleanups or sweeps — expanded to $13 million. But spending on services for people living in the streets — mobile showers, housing navigation centers, storage facilities and homeless parking lots — lagged behind.




Of the $7.5 million budgeted for “street strategies” in 2016-17, more than $2 million was returned to city coffers, and nearly $2 million was diverted to camp sweeps, according to figures provided by city officials. Last month, the city approved an additional $509,000 transfer from services to homeless outreach workers to accompany cleanup teams.

Advocates say hygiene, storage and other services help homeless people get back into the mainstream. But no navigation centers have opened, storage facilities are available only on skid row and, to a limited extent, in Venice, and one small city-funded parking program opened in South Los Angeles in June.

“Institutionally we have not instigated a sense of urgency about the street strategy stuff,” Westside Councilman Mike Bonin said at a recent homelessness committee meeting. ”It doesn’t seem this is where we’re putting our shoulder.”

A spokesman for Mayor Eric Garcetti said the city has expanded homeless outreach, added drop-in and access centers, and spent $4.2 million on skid row storage and nighttime bathroom access. A $450,000 hygiene center with showers, wash stations and bathrooms is set to open on skid row as soon as next week.

San Francisco Juries do not care about the Law


Gregg Jarrett: Steinle verdict is a miscarriage of justice


"You gotta lift the money, lift the wallets... Then maybe they will pay attention"


Right! But too many of the scumbag, left-leaning residents DO NOT PAY TAX,

and therefore will not be directly impacted by a cut of Federal Funds

California sued because too many children can't read...


A group of prominent lawyers representing teachers and students from poor performing schools sued California on Tuesday, arguing that the state has done nothing about a high number of schoolchildren who do not know how to read.


The advocacy law firm, Public Counsel, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court to demand the California Department of Education address its "literacy crisis." The state has not followed suggestions from its own report on the problem five years ago, the lawsuit said.


"When it comes to literacy and the delivery of basic education, California is dragging down the nation,"

said Public Counsel lawyer Mark Rosenbaum, who sued along with the law firm Morrison & Foerster.

West Coast crisis leads to rise in homeless population...



LOS ANGELES (AP) — The nation’s homeless population increased this year for the first time since 2010, driven by a surge in the number of people living on the streets in Los Angeles and other West Coast cities.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released its annual Point in Time count Wednesday, a report that showed nearly 554,000 homeless people across the country during local tallies conducted in January. That figure is up nearly 1 percent from 2016.

Of that total, 193,000 people had no access to nightly shelter and instead were staying in vehicles, tents, the streets and other places considered uninhabitable. The unsheltered figure is up by more than 9 percent compared to two years ago.

Increases are higher in several West Coast cities, where the explosion in homelessness has prompted at least 10 city and county governments to declare states of emergency since 2015.

City officials, homeless advocates and those living on the streets point to a main culprit: the region’s booming economy .
