What Becton apparently doesn't realize is that as District Attorney, she is supposed to represent the victims' interests, not the criminals. She is an absolute joke.

Becton is a danger to the law-abiding citizens and residents of Contra Costa County. She is more interested in releasing criminals into the community, rather than doing her job as a prosecutor of criminals. She must be voted out of office at the first opportunity, which I believe will be in 2022. In the meantime, the public needs to be watchful of her efforts to purge her office of anyone she deems to be a possible opponent.

LA Times reported that left wing extremist Billionaire George Soros donated $275,000 to Becton's campaign for District Attorney, as part of his campaign to get pro-criminal rather than pro-victim District Attorneys elected in California.

As for Becton, she was actually caught plagiarizing significant portions of her application for District Attorney, but yet the County Supervisors appointed her to interim District Attorney. She also was the only candidate for District Attorney who had absolute no prosecutorial experience, but yet was appointed District Attorney.

Since becoming District Attorney, she has been sued by four long term assistant prosecutors in her office for sex discrimination.

Becton's anti-police, anti-victim, and pro-criminal policies are going to turn Contra Costa County into one of the most dangerous counties to live in. Her policies may be appropriate for the Public Defenders office, but not for the District Attorney's office, where she is responsible for protecting the rights of law abiding citizens.
