The most progressive DA in history allowed someone out of the system and they were irresponsible and did a drunken felony. Yes, that is bad. But isn't locking innocent people up for decades also bad? Framed people getting extended prison terms is also bad. And what of non-violent offenders? The prison system is a flawed construct only suitable for violent sociopaths, not for people lacking resources or opportunity. Lastly, the racism in the justice system is now widely known. With Covid and other dangers, do we want to risk people's lives simply to punish? Or is it good for society to reconsider failed policies and corrupted institutions? I wouldn't consider this specific decision to be a sign that Boudin is any worse than any DA.

Sacks is a corporate apologist with an axe to grind with self identified leftists like Boudin.

This is a very powerful investigation into S.F.'s District Attorney, his upbringing, policies, and their results. Although David Sacks is clearly arguing in favor of a position, he backs up his claims with evidence and well-reasoned conclusions. I don't yet have an opinion on this matter, but this article does a good job outlining the negative aspects of the D.A.'s current approach.
