Don Corleone: Give this job to Clemenza. I want reliable people, people who aren’t going to be carried away. I mean, we’re not murderers, in spite of what this undertaker thinks...

The Godfather 1972

Being of Sicilian ancestry this story out of LA seemed rather familar:

Los Angeles-area teenager who ran over a mother walking her child in a stroller in Venice in 2021 and received just a few months of diversionary camp as punishment was gunned down in Palmdale this week, according to FOX News.

The hit and run took place when he was fifteen and the video of it went viral but the pleaded sentence was….interesting:

The case made national headlines last year when Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón‘s office sought a five- to seven-month sentence in juvenile probation camp, a punishment for young offenders described as less severe than military school but harsher than summer camp.

Gascón’s office told Fox News Digital at the time that the sentence was “an appropriate resolution.” 

Now mind you this kid had already been caught trying to poison a classmate and the car he hit this woman and her kid with was stolen but this is a blue state and jailing criminals isn’t a priority

Cue Don Corleone:

Don Corleone: I understand. You found paradise in America. You had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. So you didn’t need a friend like me. Now you come and say “Don Corleone, give me justice.” But you don’t ask with respect. You don’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me “Godfather.” You come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married and you ask me to do murder – for money.

Bonasera: I ask you for justice.

Don Corleone: That is not justice. Your daughter is alive.

The woman in question who had been run over with her child reportedly fled the state over the soft on crime business. She had this to say on the subject:

“I think I feel shorted – by the system because they didn’t hold him accountable and sad, not for him, but for his mom a little, because if George Gascón actually did his job this kid would still be alive in jail,” Rachel told FOX News.

Shades of the Trayvon Martin case where not punishing someone for theft for the sake of politics proved deadly

Both of Trayvon’s suspensions during his junior year at Krop High involved crimes that could have led to his prosecution as a juvenile offender. However, Chief Charles Hurley of the Miami-Dade School Police Department (MDSPD) in 2010 had implemented a policy that reduced the number of criiminal reports, manipulating statistics to create the appearance of a reduction in crime within the school system. Less than two weeks before Martin’s death, the school system commended Chief Hurley for “decreasing school-related juvenile delinquency by an impressive 60 percent for the last six months of 2011.” What was actually happening was that crimes were not being reported as crimes, but instead treated as disciplinary infractions.

Now like the Trayvon Martin case there seems to be no direct connection between the crime that young Mr. Baca committed and his shooting death, but I suspect as the criminal justice system in blue states continues to free people guilty of crime, sooner or later the victims will seek justice from another source.

If I was a Mafia Don I’d jump at this potential source of revenue that would only make me popular with the populace and would not likely draw a lot of commendation from police no longer allowed to do their jobs.

If I was a local gang leader I might do the same, of course I suspect that they will not be as careful to make sure that the punishment fits the crime.

Of course I don’t suspect this will be an issue in Georgia.
