Chesa Boudin Puts The Blame On San Francisco Police Officers

Chesa Boudin thinks that the problem is not with his team but with the police officers. He cited the example of the current Vice President Kamala Harris. The police department blamed her just like they are blaming him right now. Boudin tried to prove in the interview that the police officers will go to any extent to not do their work. Furthermore, he said, “The reality is the POA (police officers union) needs someone to point the finger at and this isn’t a new issue. Look they were blaming (Vice President) Kamala Harris and attacking her when she was the district attorney. This is an age-old problem in San Francisco because the POA wants to get away without doing its job.”

Boudin Thinks Police Clearance Rate Needs To Go Up

Boudin revealed that the police department allows officers to be racist and discriminate against people of color. However, he has stood up against the department and demanded change. He also demanded for the clearance rate to go up. Furthermore, Boudin said, “Frankly, when it comes to crime, we need to increase police clearance rates. Right now, police are only making arrests in about 10 percent of all reported crimes. There is no way we are going to lock up our way out of a problem when police are only clearing 10 percent of reported crimes.”
