Left-wing billionaire George Soros insisted Monday that soft-on-crime district attorneys he’s backed to the tune of millions of dollars are making the criminal justice system “more effective and just” — and warned that “I have no intention of stopping” his support for them.
“This agenda includes prioritizing the resources of the criminal-justice system to protect people against violent crime. It urges that we treat drug addiction as a disease, not a crime. And it seeks to end the criminalization of poverty and mental illness,” he wrote, later adding: “The goal is not defunding the police but restoring trust between the police and the policed, a partnership that fosters the solving of crimes.”
Joe Biden said he supported defunding the police during the 2020 election cycle.
