The Dallas DA just announced OPEN SEASON for petty criminals to do whatever they WANT!!

Let me tell you something, reader. Just between you and me, I see a lot of crap. OK. I see a lot of crap. A LOT. I seen some insane headlines. But this one. Wow. I am… flabbergasted.

Just behold this obscene insanity:

Dallas County Criminal District Attorney John Creuzot, who campaigned on criminal justice reform, announced he no longer plans to prosecute certain low-level crimes.

His office is in the process of dropping many of those cases.

He’s already dismissed more than 1,000 drug possession cases during his first three months in office.

OK, listen, low level drug crimes? I can see that. Some of those are overkill. OK. Now watch where this goes:

Shortly after being elected in November 2018, Creuzot said, “On my agenda is to not ask judges to send people to the penitentiary for technical violations of their probation – for instance not doing community service, not paying fines and fees.”

OK OK, listen some of that is bad, some of that is good. I mean, we need punishment for not following the law, but sometimes it’s so onerous that it cripples poor people. I understand.

Then this happened:

Creuzot said he’ll dismiss many criminal trespass cases as well, charges he says are most often brought against the mentally ill and homeless.



WAIT WHAT?!

Uhhhh that is a VERY VERY bad idea bro. You are basically telling the homeless they can break into whatever they want. Now, first of all, you’re gonna get a lot of homeless people getting shot. Secondly, do you think the homeless will DO NOTHING else after they break in? ARE YOU INSANE?

Clearly, this guy is insane because it gets worse:

He also said his office will no longer prosecute theft cases involving personal items worth less than $750, unless evidence shows it was for economic gain.

ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME? ARE YOU BATCRAP CRAZY??!!

How does someone steal something for $749.99 NOT for economic gain? What does that even mean? They stole it for charity?!?!? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT AHOLE?!?!

This guy is scared:

But Andrew Arterburn, the owner of One Stop Express in Uptown said a shoplifter just stole $120 worth of laundry detergent on Thursday and he’s not happy to find out cases like this could be dismissed.

And he’s right to be.

It’s open season on taxpayers and business owners in Dallas, and the criminals are going to take advantage. This is blazingly stupid. Y’all better pray for the people of Dallas. They are voting in crazy people who is gonna let crazy people commit whatever crimes they want. I need a stiff drink.

  1. Cruezot is getting a lot of heat from his statement and is already trying to back off it, basically saying that he’s not going to prosecute homeless for stealing food. Still stupid and dangerous.
    Dallas has really bought a ticker for the Crazy Train Bullet Express these last few years. Elected officials keep getting indicted and then the people elect someone even worse to come in behind them.

    1. We have a real homeless problem in San Diego, CA. And the reason it is SO bad, is because the powers that be refuse to allow the police to enforce the laws. Every day in our little business area, one of these homeless who are camping in the parking lots (because they want to be drug addicts, too) tries to steal something from one of the small stores in the center. All we can do is shew them out. Hopefully one of them doesn’t have a weapon on them, or it could get nasty.

  2. @soopermexican this is one of your better and sarcastic-comedic articles I recall reading.
    “I need a stiff drink.” On an earlier you joked about that and I actually believe you’ve had a few. Cheers. { It would only be fair for Scoop to pick up your weekend bar bill. }
    As far as Texas goes, I have faith that small business owners and citizens will take care of these matters since they have D.A. John Creuzot turning Dallas into a “free-for-all” for criminals.

  3. Wow so I can rob a bank of $749.99 a day, five days a week, for 52 weeks. I would make a little more than a congressman, but tax free!! Eat all my meals at restaurants and just walk out, maybe leave a tip if the service is good. Life will be great!!

  4. Hopefully, this da will find himself a victim of what he refuses to prosecute. This guy is a public servant who serves the taxpayers. If citizens of Dallas do nothing about this, they deserve the government they get.

  5. Thank God I never have to go to Dallas. I do have to take frequent trips to fort worth though. Just got back yesterday from my last stint. That’s a little too close for comfort. The Uber drivers there tell me that Dallas politics are extremely corrupt. Didn’t realize it was this bad though.

  6. 1,2,3,4,5,6……..999,999,999. Me counting ammunition.
    And this is why the 2nd amendment is more important than ever.

    1. Soros is paying to get these DA’s into office around the country. Governor Abbott warned us about this a couple years ago.

      Happy Easter!!

  7. It’s Texas not a good idea to go breaking into peoples homes or business. This guy is going to get people killed.

  8. Um he;s an officer of the law, so someone explain why he doesn’t have to follow the law, instead of trying to makes new laws with what he will or won’t do. It is crazy

  9. I know one person who is breaking the law and apparently making up his own…He needs to be removed…And this is what many of us feared when Mike Lee of all people and others decided to leave it up to these creatures…All because a couple of constituents had a sob story….

  10. Seems like no matter what part of the country you live in, the cities/metropolitan areas are run by dumbf*cks.

  11. I’m investing in the company that makes body bags, because this will be the breaking point and people will be playing judge and jury The law abiding citizens versus lawyers, politicians and criminals Btw the police, I bet will be on the law abiding citizens side

    1. @trapper1960s Oh you can bet that the DA will go after anyone that does any harm to those committing crimes he refuses to prosecute. The police should refuse to arrest anyone for protecting their property that the DA won’t help them protect.

  12. What this idiot doesn’t seem to understand is that if 20 homeless people steal $5 worth of food each then that’s $100 worth of inventory that a merchant has lost and needs to replace! These folks are in business to make money! Do your damn job Mr. prosecutor!

  13. He also said his office will no longer prosecute theft cases involving personal items worth less than $750, unless evidence shows it was for economic gain.

    The guy is specifically trying to hurt owners of the newest Apple iPhone XR, which is currently $749.99. When their phones are stolen, they will be unable to turn to law enforcement.

    Why do you hate Apple iPhone XR owners, Creuzot… WHY?!

  14. Given the clogged courts, I can see a DA telling staff to put simple trespass and petty burglaries at the bottom of the stack, maybe even decline to prosecute a drunk sleeping one off on a vacant lot or or a kid who stole a box of tools.

    However, to declare trespass laws won’t be enforced is an invitation for squatters…and when they’re injured, an ambulance chasing lawyer will be there to file suit against the property owner.

    Declaring an “it’s OK to steal” limit means it’s open season on law abiding citizens for petty theft – no consequences.

    The Chief of Police in Manila made a similar declaration years ago, “If somebody wants your mobile phone, just give it to them, don’t resist.” The police were no longer pursuing these thefts. The number of robberies skyrocketed.

    So…this DA is turning Dallas into a third world Hell hole. Good job Dallas!

    1. That’s what happens when you allow libturds to move into your state! They vote in the same sht that they left from!!!

  15. This won’t last long. The first murder or any other major crime committed by one of the felons he has chosen not to prosecute, will be the end for him. The people of Dallas should be out on the streets with their pitchforks over this. In the meantime, I’m uploading some Xanax to Soop. 🙂

  16. Isn’t “criminal trespass” different than “breaking and entering”?? I can trespass without going INSIDE a property(building) illegally which is breaking and entering. I don’t agree with what this DA is doing but I question the analogy. When our highest law enforcement people just arbitrarily decide they aren’t going to follow the current laws as the stand……….we are in BIG TROUBLE in this country!!!

    1. In Texas, criminal trespass is very different from trespass, which is different from breaking and entering.

      Back in our CHL classes, they drove home the point: if you trespass while carrying a weapon, that is automatically criminal trespass and you will be arrested. The example the instructor gave was if you took a shortcut through an empty lot legally posted “no trespass.” Without a weapon, most likely you’ll get a warning, but worst case you’ll be cited. With a weapon, you will be arrested. …and you’ll lose your CHL for 90 days or 6 months. They changed many of the details in the last few years, but I believe criminal trespass is still different, at least in Texas.

      B&E is more severe.

  17. So just what in the hell is this guy going to be doing with all of his free time now that he’s basically stopped doing his job? Unless you commit murder there, you’re fine and dandy. Every pickpocket and pursesnatcher in America is going to relocate to his jurisdiction. I’d say a recall election is needed, yesterday!

  18. My sister in law says L.A. is doing the same thing and crime is rising. No kidding? Really?

    1. On the other hand, letting Texans protect themselves by eliminating the problems (only if they break in and threaten us, of course) is cheaper in the long run than what it will cost the police to defend against such criminals….I figure that is why the United Constitutional Patriots were holding illegals at the border of New Mexico a few days ago too….the American people are about to take all matters of law enforcement into their own hands, at which point we no longer need the House or Senate or much of local government, since they refuse to do their jobs! TEXIT!!!

  19. Soop…you live in Cali, right? That is very different from Texas. I just wantcha to know that y’all do not have to worry about us here in Texas, where carrying weaponry to protect ourselves is commonplace and entirely legal. We do not wait for police officers if someone attacks us inside our businesses or our homes (or trucks), as nearly all of us know how to handle these situations…and I will add that it is mighty kind of Dallas County Criminal District Attorney John Creuzot to give us a heads-up about his intentions, providing us with fair warning that we must remain armed at all times, bless his heart. He is in a high-crime urban area of Dallas and I am confident that everyone there has protection too. Lord help his criminals if they wander down here to Hill Country! :bam:

      1. It all depends on intent. If you took a shortcut through a field marked “No Trespass” then No big deal. If your intent was to case the joint to rob later, then you get a ride to the station.

        The criminal aspect of trespass comes from the 30.XX laws. There’s no criminal activity tied with licensed possession of a firearm. The criminality cones with refusing to leave a private premises while in possession of said firearm. IF they catch you with it and tell you to leave, you gotta go. You tarry, you arrested for criminal trespass.

  21. He also said his office will no longer prosecute theft cases involving personal items worth less than $750, unless evidence shows it was for economic gain.

  26. I agree with 750 being a big mistake but I think the reason he is letting the homeless trespass slide is because they just get off anyway due to mental illness so why go thru the trouble of arresting, booking and processing them if the judge is just going to let them off

  27. I’m investing in the company that makes body bags, because this will be the breaking point and people will be playing judge and jury The law abiding citizens versus lawyers, politicians and criminals Btw the police, I bet will be on the law abiding citizens side

    1. @trapper1960s Oh you can bet that the DA will go after anyone that does any harm to those committing crimes he refuses to prosecute. The police should refuse to arrest anyone for protecting their property that the DA won’t help them protect.

      1. This is pushing things to a all out race war. I can see it now, a black is shot down running away from a robbery, blacks go to the streets as usual demanding justice. DA fails to prosecute the robbery victim for murder. The blacks go after the robbery victim, it gets out of hand and they kill the robbery victim. Question is will this be the straw that breaks the camels back. This is what Obama and Holder dreamed of It’s going to take some great black leaders to stand up and teach the black community that these black politicians have led them astray I don’t hold a lot of hope for this ending well.

        1. @trapper1960s I don’t know that his motives are racial (it may be), but it will appear that way if it heavily benefits black criminals. I want to see the response in the community. Black or white, people don’t like to be robbed and they will take measures to defend themselves.

          1. I understand blacks, browns and whites commits crimes but only blacks riot and destroy things when a black criminal is shot and killed. We’ve seen it over and over and we hear the same thing, they’re such great kids but just happen to have a police record a mile long
            We just had a incident here in Pittsburgh a bit ago where a black male was shot in the back by a police officer, running from a car, he was in, that just happened to be involved in a drive by shooting earlier. All hell broke loose and of course they pop out pics of him that looked like when he was 12 or 13 and people coming forward on the news of what a great kid he was. Blocking highways at rush hour chanting no justice no peace. Does this sound familiar?
            I guarantee we will have restaurants and stores in Dallas area close their doors because of the DA decision and a huge spike in robbery from whites, brown, black and yellow. All it’s going to take is one black criminal to get shot dead and businesses, cars will be looted and burned. Who in their right mind will continue doing business under those circumstances?

  28. If I steal 749 dollars worth of stuff from store1 (food, clothes…) can I go back there tomorrow and do it again…or do I have to go to a different store?

    1. @pybop Why do that? Make a day of it. Store hop. By the end of they day you could have collected quite a bit of stuff.

      1. Just trying to get the rules straight…trying to think it through a little deeper than the idiot who proposed it.

        1. @pybop He’s just asking for reaction crime to shoot through the roof. If he’s not going to prosecute criminals people will take the law into their own hands.

    2. If you’re caught, do you have to give anything back or since they’re just letting you go, do you keep the $749in products. But if I was owner of the store, wouldn’t I say you stole $751 in products. Then that puts the police in a position, who to believe?! The evil shop owner or the innocent ole py who just happened to have some of the products on him. Who do the police believe?!?!

  29. “Just between you and me, I see a lot of crap.”

    You would probably see less if you cut back on the tacos.

    Happy Easter, Sooper.

  30. I agree with 750 being a big mistake but I think the reason he is letting the homeless trespass slide is because they just get off anyway due to mental illness so why go thru the trouble of arresting, booking and processing them if the judge is just going to let them off

  31. Someone has to state the very obvious, so I will. This policy is about race plain and simple, this black DA is an Eric Holder wannabe, taking care of “his people”. He will use the race card to silence his critics and the media will let him get away with it. Anyone who dares to question his motives will immediately be met with howls of racism thereby silencing legitimate criticism.

    We are increasingly being silenced by having race, gender, ethnicity, etc. used to paint anyone who dares object as bigots or racists and I’m damned tired of it. Freedom of speech means exactly that, the founders wrote the 1st Amendment precisely so that all speech, no matter how distasteful will be heard.

    The black Dallas DA is just as much a racist as is David Duke, he’s using his race as a tool to silence critics and to enable minority crime rates to soar, while leaving law abiding citizens no recourse. This half breed, malcontent has violated his oath of office and needs to be thrown form office ASAP. Yes I said it!

    1. @rwrad Crime rates will go down. Isn’t that a good thing? / heavy sarcasm

      He might regret it when people start protecting their property by shooting trespassers and thieves.

  32. Cruezot is getting a lot of heat from his statement and is already trying to back off it, basically saying that he’s not going to prosecute homeless for stealing food. Still stupid and dangerous.
    Dallas has really bought a ticker for the Crazy Train Bullet Express these last few years. Elected officials keep getting indicted and then the people elect someone even worse to come in behind them.

    1. We have a real homeless problem in San Diego, CA. And the reason it is SO bad, is because the powers that be refuse to allow the police to enforce the laws.

  36. Cruezot’s appallingly stupid statements leave no question that he needs to be removed from his position, immediately. He is clearly violating his sworn duty as a prosecutor to uphold the law and his oath of office. He is literally endangering the lives of the people of Dallas.

  37. 1,2,3,4,5,6……..999,999,999. Me counting ammunition.
