🤔💼 Ex-DA of San Francisco, Chesa Boudin, Ditches Politics for Academia 🎓🔬
TL;DR: 😎 Chillax, we’ve got the scoop right here! Former San Fran District Attorney, Chesa Boudin, famous for his radical-leftist lineage and headline-grabbing reign as DA, has said “no thank you” to running for office in 2024. Instead, he’s trading in his gavel for a classroom, as the new Executive Director of a Criminal Law Research and Advocacy Center at UC Berkeley’s law school. 👨🏫📚
The former controversial DA of San Francisco, Chesa Boudin, is swapping political office for an academic affair. 🧐 Remember how he was kicked out through a recall election last year? That’s right, our progressive-leaning crime fighter won’t be tossing his hat into the ring in 2024. 👀
Remember those critics who claimed his laid-back approach to crime was turning the city into a Mad Max scene? 🌆🔥 Well, he’s giving them the deuces ✌️ and embracing a fresh start at the University of California, Berkeley. Instead of sending subpoenas, he’ll be leading the charge on research and advocacy in criminal law.
Boudin, a child of radical leftists jailed for their part in a failed 1981 Brink’s armored truck heist (yeah, you can’t make this stuff up), isn’t totally done with reform though. 💣💰😲 He’s declared that his new gig aligns with his lifelong dedication to reforming the criminal legal system, ending mass incarceration, and innovating data-driven solutions for public safety.
Remember, Boudin was replaced by Brooke Jenkins, who, unlike him, didn’t seem too keen on giving lawbreakers a chance to reform. 🤷♀️ She was all about the ‘consequences’. 😮
At the newly established Criminal Law & Justice Center, Boudin will focus on examining the effects of specific policies and informing the public on the real needs to ensure safety in their communities. 🏘️
Now, isn’t it interesting to think of what an ex-DA with a progressive mindset could do in an academic setting? He’s gone from fighting crime in the streets to tackling it in research papers and classrooms. 🕵️♂️📝👨🎓
Oh, and did we mention he dropped all this tea ☕️ in an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle? Nothing like a well-timed press release, eh? 📰😏

So, here’s the question we’re left pondering… 🤔 How will Boudin’s switch from prosecution to academia shape the future discourse on criminal justice reform? And will his absence from the 2024 election change the political landscape in San Francisco? Let’s talk about it! 👇
