NEWS ALERT: Soros complains that his justice reform efforts are being blamed for rising crime, blasts Biden’s efforts to hire more cops

Hungarian-born liberal billionaire George Soros published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Sunday, complaining that his justice reform efforts are being blamed for the rising crime rates across the United States.

Soros’ op-ed, titled, “Why I Support Reform Prosecutors,” begins as follows:

Americans desperately need a more thoughtful discussion about our response to crime. People have had enough of the demagoguery and divisive partisan attacks that dominate the debate and obscure the issues.

Like most of us, I’m concerned about crime. One of government’s most important roles is to ensure public safety. I have been involved in efforts to reform the criminal-justice system for the more than 30 years I have been a philanthropist.

Yet our system is rife with injustices that make us all less safe. The idea that we need to choose between justice and safety is false. They reinforce each other: If people trust the justice system, it will work. And if the system works, public safety will improve.

We need to acknowledge that black people in the U.S. are five times as likely to be sent to jail as white people. That is an injustice that undermines our democracy.

Soros declared that instead of spending $81 billion annually to keep around two million people in jails and prison, the money should instead be spent on mental health professionals, youth job programs and education for the incarcerated.

He touted his own agenda to reform the criminal justice system, while insisting that his goal was not to defund the police, but “restoring trust between the police and the policed.”

Soros claimed that violent crime is rising faster in areas where he hasn’t installed his “reform-minded prosecutors.”   He wrote:

Some politicians and pundits have tried to blame recent spikes in crime on the policies of reform-minded prosecutors. The research I’ve seen says otherwise. The most rigorous academic study, analyzing data across 35 jurisdictions, shows no connection between the election of reform-minded prosecutors and local crime rates. In fact, violent crime in recent years has generally been increasing more quickly in jurisdictions without reform-minded prosecutors. Murder rates have been rising fastest in some Republican states led by tough-on-crime politicians.

He wrapped it up by defending the millions of dollars he has spent getting radical prosecutors elected, and declared he isn’t about to stop:

This is why I have supported the election (and more recently the re-election) of prosecutors who support reform. I have done it transparently, and I have no intention of stopping. The funds I provide enable sensible reform-minded candidates to receive a hearing from the public. Judging by the results, the public likes what it’s hearing.

Soros then posted a link to his op-ed on Twitter.

On Friday, he doubled down, slamming the news that Democrats are considering bills that would provide money to hire 100,000 new police officers.

“U.S. President Biden’s plan to hire thousands of new police officers runs entirely counter to other parts of his criminal justice reform agenda that are focused on proven just and fair methods to prevent crime,” Soros wrote.

He was responding to an op-ed published on Friday, written by Maya Wiley, a progressive Democrat and civil rights activist who was defeated in her race for mayor of New York City last year.

Wiley’s article, titled, “100,000 New Cops? There Are Far Better Ways to Fight Crime,” reads:

Two bills are moving through the House to fund hiring and retention of police without any accountability measures to ensure fairer and safer policing. The House had passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act last year only to see it die in the Senate. This year, funding police comes with no committee process or protections. The reason? Vulnerable Democrats.

Wiley also writes:

Biden announced a set of initiatives, as part of his fiscal year 2023 budget proposal, that he believes will increase public safety. He proposes funding local police departments to hire 100,000 new police officers over five years to the tune of $13 billion.

“We do not need 100,000 new police officers,” she declares, adding that Democrats should instead “be focused on exciting and engaging the base of their vote: people of color, young and women voters of all races.”

“His [Biden’s] proposal muddles the message that would galvanize younger voters and, with no real accountability, lead to a replication of abused Black and brown communities. Millennials are a diverse group and want a very different vision of public safety that focuses on prevention and fairness. Democrats need these demographics to turn out. Voters of color who are more likely to live in communities with higher homicide rates want sufficient police presence but also want police to treat residents with respect and oppose the lack of accountability,” Wiley adds.

On Thursday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced he was suspending Soros-backed prosecutor Andrew Warren over his refusal to enforce Florida laws.

  1. Says Soros, the international criminal who vowed to bring down the United States. Yeah, we know what motivates your donations.

  2. They’re all in Cahoots! This is just smoke and mirrors. Soros the Clintons Obama’s and the Bidens are all in this together!

  3. Soros’ reform is lawlessness, as I remember he was a member of the enforcers in Germany, so I don’t want him reforming anything here. He uses his money for evil and donates to puts in lawless people who allow criminals to get away with crimes. He has time and again done the same in other countries and then reaped the profits from this behavior.

  4. Soros need to removed.from the US and ALL his ascetts need to be taken from him. Every place his money has gotten someone elected has a high cre rate. the reason more black are in jail is because they are the ones committing the crimes.

  5. Who does he really think he is? Soros is a destructive criminal terrorist that has NO AUTHORITY whatsoever to initiate ANY SO CALLED personal JUSTICE REFORM in this country, overriding current LAWS? He should be BEHIND BARS for his uncountable CRIMES against the United States!

  6. Soros remember about George riots and you all wanted to defund the policemen remember and now you want more cops. George was a drug addict man and had three funerals where a United States President has only one. Soros you are a terrible criminal moron man and you need yo keep your filthy mouth shut

  7. Governor Desantis did EXACTLY the right thing when he fired (suspended) that SOB for not enforcing state laws. That’s what all these Red State Governors should do – if they don’t, then you know that they are not Constitutionalist Governors but RINO Guvna’s. Utah has a RINO Guvna – now, he is exposed.

  8. Face it, Soros, you think we’re stupid and that you know what’s best for all of us! You, a man of Jewish heritage was in the nazi youth during WWII. You are the blind and deaf. You have such a seared conscience that you no longer recognize TRUTH when it stares you in the face. I pity you, old man. I pity you and I pray that your heart be softened to the real truth. You’ll know it if it happens.

  9. This criminal that destroys countries for his financial benefit needs to stay away from the USA. Socialism has already been proven not to work. Why does our government allow this foreigner to interfere with our country? This is just wrong, he has a plan and I don’t think it’s good.

  10. That MF NEED to be kicked by American boots out of the country and never come back, you pos son of a bitch fuck y and fuck your money who is the hel are you walking trash can to tell us american how to live ANOTHER FUCCI OLD FUCK both need to be hanged

  11. This guy and his family are so evil. He has most people in our government paid off, the Clintons, the Obamas, the Biden’s, his administration, DOJ, lots of politicians, so they let him do what he wants. Now you know why nothing ever happens to him. He pays all the evil protestors so if it’s evil he’s behind it. One day he’ll have to face God just like the rest of us!

  12. Soros is delusional. People need to get this fact. Yes, he is rich… But he is delusional. When you are that rich, are you allowed to change the universe, and global governments? He’s pretty sure that he has enough money to do that. He doesn’t think like us. We do not think like him or his family. He needs to be ostracized.

  13. Send this terrorist back to his own country or jail. We don’t need his BS here in OUR COUNTRY. Better yet anyone who was elected with his money should be prosecuted for taking it as a traitor to Americans. They should be removed from any job they hold. This is the kind of BS that’s destroying this country. Paid and bought for favors by outsiders. China shouldn’t be allowed to buy anything in this country as well. Cancel all purchases from these idiots as well. Any American who sold their property to them should have to answer for it. This is America and we don’t need outside interference in this country.

  14. SOROS IS PURE EVIL AND HAS BEEN SINCE HE WATCHED JEWS BEING MARCHED TO THEIR DEATH AND SAYING ON 60 MINUTES THAT THOSE WERE HIS FINEST TIMES.
    HUNGARY KICKED HIM OUT, HE WAS BORN THERE, RUSSIA KICKED HIM OUT.
    HE HAS BEEN KICKED OUT OF MANY COUNTRIES BECAUSE OF THE EVIL HE HAS DONE.
    THIS MAN NEEDS TO GO TO HELL AND ASAP, HE SHOULD NOT HAVE THE POWER HE DOES, HIS MONEY HAS BEEN GOTTEN BY EVIL WORKS AND HE USES IT FOR EVIL.
    I HOPE HE ROTS IN HELL.

  15. Someone please turn Soros in to Putin He has no business messing in our Election The Devil will get him soon Next comes his Son who personally picked Harris as VP

  16. Well, you are to blame. You dished out a lot of money to get these Progressives in office. You own all the pain and suffering that families of crime victims experience. You own all of it. You are a very rich man with all the protection in the world so you will never be a victim. Just like when you put on that Nazi uniform to protect yourself during WWII. All those victims and families of victims should sue you for the cost of their Medical treatment and the pain and suffering they’re going through not to mention the fear they experience everyday not knowing if they’ll be the next victim if they go out in public.

  17. Put a bounty on George Soros (dead or alive) and circulate it worldwide. This is not his country and has no rights to dictate or interfere in our country’s government. FREEZE HIS DONATION MONEY TO OUR GOVERNMENT AND TO BLM, ANTIFA AND PROUD BOYS.

  18. GEORGE SOROS IS AN INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST!

    I HOPE THIS EVIL POS DIES SOON!

    THE DEATH AND DESTRUCTION HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SHOULD ENSURE HE BURNS IN HELL – SOON I HOPE!

    HIS CLEAR MOTIVATION FOR THE JUSTICE SYSTEM BEING DESTROYED IN THE US IS LONG HISTORY OF TARGETING WESTERN COUNTRIES!

    BY DEFINITION, HIS “PROSECUTORS” ARE LAWLESS – REFUSING TO ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT THEY ARE SWORN TO UPHOLD! THAT IS A CRIME! PERIOD!

    SOROS AND ALL OF HIS “LAWLESS PROSECUTORS” SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT TERRORISM! THE VIOLENT AND DESTRUCTIVE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS CAN BE QUANTIFIED!

    AFTER BEING GOUND GUILTY, THEY SHOULD BE EXECUTED!

    OUR GOVERNMENT MUST STAND UP AGAINST LAWLESSNESS AND HOLD CRIMINALS ACCOUNTABLE! MOST CRIMINALS ARE IRREDEEMABLE AND SHOULD BE DEALT WITH AS SUCH!

    HARD LABOR ON WORK FARMS OR OTHER WORK PROGRAMS TO PAY FOR THEIR CRIMES!

    RAPISTS, MURDERERS, PEDOPHILES – DEATH PENALTY CARRIED OUT 24 HOURS AFTER SENTENCING!
