Virginia’s New AG Fires Civil Rights Division, Will Start Prosecuting Cases Dropped By ‘Social Justice’ DAs

This sounds promising. In management true changes of direction often start with bold moves.

Under the state’s former administration Virginia seemed to me to be emulating California. Let’s hope the current shakeup heralds a return to being ourselves.

    1. The greatest political weakness of the Democrats in Virginia and around the country is apathy. Looks like our new governor is intent on doing something about that. Sort of a mini-Trump in that regard.

        1. Shame?
          Uh, you are either delusional or projecting. Shame belongs to Trump supporters. He provides countless reasons to be ashamed. President Biden does not.

          But if we are going to have an adult conversation, I would expect you to acknowledge that turnout is always a bigger problem for Democrats than for Republicans. That is reality. And it is also a reality that Trump helps Democrats address that problem. He helps keep us motivated. My point about our new governor is that this firing of the Civil Rights division etc. he is going to be doing the same for Democrats in this state.

          Now, if you disagree, maybe you can say why – without hyperbolic nonsense? If you can’t do that, so be it.

        2. RE: “There is a great deal of buyer’s remorse among Democrats not deep in the bubble.”

          Tulsi Gabbard, for example, claiming that Biden has betrayed his supporters by sowing division instead of fostering unity as he promised.

  1. Unfortunately, all I see as a result of doing the right, fair and lawful thing is having to bear left wing babble and the typical accusations of the GOP being racists. 3, 2, 1….

    1. Ask ex-chief of police Angela Greene what she thinks of criminal Lucas and the portsmouth council decision to pay criminal Lucas $300k for abuse of public office, interfering with police and obstruction of justice.

    2. So, what happened to innocent until proven guilty?
      Is that for “Whites Only?”

      You seem to think that it is okay for the police to use their power to harass critics with excessive charges. And to bring charges without consulting with and actually surprising the District Attorney?

      Fortunately, the prosecutors and the judge do not agree. It was clear to them that there was no chance of a successful prosecution. One line of defense is obvious – as a respected leader in her community she was at the protest to keep things from getting too far out of hand. That was her intent – not to destroy city property.

      That is what is called the rule of law. The judge had the final call. Case dismissed. The city settled because the conduct of the police was not defensible.

      Also, fortunately, the judge well understood that there are plenty of people like you running around so the case was dismissed WITH PREJUDICE which means your hoped-for renewal of the prosecution cannot happen.

      1. No, it is not the rule of law. It is corruption in the entire Portsmouth political system, including the courts and Commonwealth’s Attorney office.

        Innocent until proven guilty is a legal concept, not reality, and we all saw her on video blatantly using her political power to interfere with the police carrying out their duties.

        The only reason she is not in prison is that under a feudal system, you cannot indict the king.

        1. LOL!
          More “corruption.”

          Even the courts are “corrupt!” You say that like someone who is ignorant of the fact that the Portsmouth judges recused themselves and the case was heard by a judge who normally sits in Richmond. She “corrupt” too? Her professional colleagues don’t seem to think so.

          “Corruption” is what you see EVERY time events do not go the way you want. You are wearing it out.

          And your racially tinged double standard on “innocent until proven guilty” is shining bright with this one. Now “it is a legal concept not reality.” You have fiercely defended that principle for cases like that of that white teen-aged killer in Wisconsin but not for the black policeman defending the Congress. See what I mean about a double standard?

          1. “The Richmond judge could only rule on what the Portsmouth prosecutor who owes her job to Lucas, presented.”

            Bullshit. She was NOT a rubber stamp. She is NOT compelled to accept motions that are not well-supported.

            Uh, why did you accuse the Portsmouth courts of “corruption” when all the judges in those courts had recused themselves from the case in question to avoid even the appearance of what you allege? Could it be you are spreading your slanders from a position of ignorance?

      2. Local cover up by a corrupt Portsmouth DA didn’t allow the case to be brought to court so criminal Lucas got off scot-free. She was dead to rights guilty as evidenced by her use of political office to obstruct police from arresting hooligans defacing and destroying war monuments which was caught on video. Same almost happened with Michael Vick when corrupt local DA tried to sweep dog fighting charges under the rug but the Feds stepped in and took over. Doesn’t it seem a little suspicious that black DAs refuse to prosecute black defendants but go after white police in a second?

          Depends on the evidence, of course. Is there some data regarding your assertion?

  2. Interesting how the majority of the cases that have been dropped are marijuana possession charges. And now that the law is changing, Miyares seems to want to prosecute as many of those before the law goes into effect.

    But is it really the job of the A-G to prosecute cases throughout the state? I was under the impression it was the duty of that office to be the Attorney for the Commonwealth? Just seems like a silly, politically motivated stretch to me. Again playing on false fears.
