DAVIS, CA – This past Thursday, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, along with other keynote panelists. spoke about the future of criminal justice reform during The Vanguard’s webinar discussion.

David Greenwald, the founder of The Vanguard, began the discussion about justice reform by introducing the changes over the past two years including mass protests after the George Floyd killing, the narrative of rising crime, and the underlying polarization that the country is facing.

Greenwald asked D.A. Boudin, “Where do we go from here?”

Boudin began by noting the reality of what San Francisco is facing by providing empirical data and information about the reduction of crime across the board in most key categories.

Through empirical evidence, Boudin explained that, unlike places like Sacramento and Oakland, which are being led by “tough on crime” prosecutors, the homicide rate in San Francisco is hovering near a 56-year low.

“The failed policies in the tough on crime era that led to mass incarceration that led to horrific racial disparities in our communities and jails and prisons are failed policies. They didn’t work. They were never supported by empirical evidence,” Boudin said.
