District Attorney Publicly Takes the Side of Criminals in Dallas

If you’re planning to steal some things, Dallas is apparently the place to be since its new DA is publicly announcing that certain crimes just won’t be prosecuted.

We already have plenty of examples of district attorneys not doing their jobs, but Dallas County District Attorney John Ceruzot, who was elected last November, has announced a number of reforms on his watch.

His office won’t prosecute any drug possession cases involving less than .01 grams of a drug; he also said in a letter that he’ll dismiss many criminal trespass cases as well, seeing as they’re most often perpetrated by the homeless and mentally ill.

And if you swipe $749 worth of Pampers from Wal-Mart, it’s all good.
