SAN FRANCISCO – Chesa Boudin, the son of anti-war radicals sent to prison for murder in the Brinks armored car robbery in Nyack when he was a toddler, has won San Francisco’s tightly contested race for district attorney after campaigning to reform the criminal justice system.
He was raised in Chicago by Weather Underground leaders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn before studying law at Yale University. He later won a Rhodes Scholarship and worked as a translator for Venezuela’s late President Hugo Chavez before coming to San Francisco.
Starting off by "reforming" public urination prosecution.
San Francisco’s pee problem could soon get worse.
Chesa Boudin, the urine-and-feces-plagued city’s incoming district attorney, pledged during the campaign not to prosecute public urination and other quality-of-life crimes if he was elected. Boudin declared victory Saturday night after results showed him winning a plurality of votes in the DA race.
“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted,” Boudin vowed in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) questionnaire during the campaign.

It has come to a choice of living with people crapping, urinating and throwing dirty needles on the sidewalks and offering or soliciting sex in front of you and your children or leaving. Ironic that he refers to these things as "quality-of-life crimes".
