Billionaire financier and investor George Soros was once known for boosting the careers of soft on crime, leftist prosecutors that would let criminals off with a very minor slap on the wrist, if anything, despite their committing horrific crimes and preying on the American populace.
Whether it was a position in Houston or Akron, LA or New York, Soros was there, throwing cash behind District Attorney positions, prosecutors, and any other official associated with the court system that he could find, using his wealth to promote being soft on criminals.
All that changed, however, after he decided to take a stroll down the streets of Harlem, New York, without his usual security detail, determining what houses were for sale and whether his investment fund would do well to buy up what buildings and houses were available in the area.
Because he wanted to remain unnoticed and thus not tip off competitors that he was interested in the area’s real estate, he walked by himself and the security team lurked miles away.
So, predictably, he got mugged, with a brazen group of seven convicted felons who had been let off with a $12 fine after murdering someone the day before beating him up, taking his wallet and phone, and then torching a car they thought was his.
Furious, he demanded that the police arrest the individuals and the local prosecutor deal with them, but his requests were roundly refused.
Though the “inner city youths” remained perched on the same gas station corner where they robbed him, drinking and smoking marijuana after the mugging, and thus would have been easy to arrest, no one would do so. That’s because the police were worried about accusations of “racism” if they arrested the same black men a second day in a row and the prosecutor, not wanting to get more bad press for letting thugs off with a slap on the wrist, wanted to avoid dealing with the issue at all.
Furious, Soros reversed course entirely and determined that, rather than continuing his present course of funding woke DAs, prosecutors, and city officials, he would only fund ones that were tough on crime.
He withdrew his funding from the PACs, Super PACs, and charities that he had been supporting, ramped up funding for pro-police PACs, started a few PACs for the toughest on crime DAs, judges, and prosecutors, and even started a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to promoting the death penalty for any crime involving violence.
Asked why he did such a massive turnaround on the crime issue, Soros responded that he has many cities he would like to tour for either real estate buying purposes or investing purposes, so he needs to ensure that such a situation won’t repeat itself if he walks around without armed security teams.
