Biden Nominates DA With Troubling History To Lead U.S. Attorney’s Office

By

Boston, MA – President Joe Biden’s nominee for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts, Rachael Rollins, has a history of refusing to prosecute a litany of offense she considers to be low-level crimes.

Rollins, who is currently the Suffolk County District Attorney, has also been accused of insinuating she was a law enforcement officer during an alleged road rage incident late last year.

President Biden announced on Monday that he has nominated her to head up the U.S. Attorney post in Massachusetts, FOX News reported.

She is expected to be confirmed by the U.S. senate this fall unless one of the Democratic senators refuses to back her, which legal experts say is extremely unlikely.

Immediately after taking office as the Suffolk County District Attorney in January of 2019, Rollins announced that with rare exception, offenses of shoplifting, trespass, threats, and larceny under $250 would no longer be prosecuted, as well as disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, and “minor driving offenses.”

She said breaking and entering would not be prosecuted, as long as the perpetrator makes sure the property is vacant. Alternatively, those who commit break-ins of occupied homes because they are cold or tired, but don’t damage anything, are also in the clear.

Offenders in Suffolk County don’t have to worry about going to court over receiving stolen property or underage drinking, and aren’t held accountable for wanton or malicious destruction of property, either.

Making threats is also permitted, with the exception of those related to domestic violence.

She vowed that drug possession would no longer be prosecuted in Suffolk County – even in cases where the suspect is a drug dealer.

Cases where an offender is charged with resisting arrest and nothing else are also turned away, as well as any instances where the person resists arrest while being charged with another offense on Rollins’ “Charges to be Declined” list.

She has even stopped rioters from being criminally charged and gone to the Massachusetts Supreme Court to fight for her right to drop charges on violent rioters.
