There are problems in Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzales’ office that affect citizens’ public safety, and the local liberal news media mostly ignores them. Employees who recently left the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office described a “hostile and toxic” work environment hampered by harassment and a lack of communication and accountability, according to resignation letters and exit interviews obtained by KSAT TV news in San Antonio.
Unfortunately, this was a story BEFORE the 2022 D.A. election, but KSAT and other local newsgroups chose to follow a liberal/leftist news agenda and ignore the story. It’s the news media picking and choosing stories to shape public opinion.
The stories and facts are obvious in the backlogged courtrooms, violent criminals with very low bail become repeat offenders and the crime and violence in San Antonio. But the local news refuses to make the connection between high crime and no punishment.
In December 2022, it was reported that high-profile trials scheduled for 2023 are faced with uncertainty because the district attorney’s office has recently lost many attorneys. D.A. Gonzales defended the problem by saying it was due to low salaries compared to other counties.
The delay in justice creates civil rights issues. The D.A. (dubbed “Let ‘em go Joe) meets with radical groups like Texas Organizing Project regularly to release detained and incarcerated people because there is a delay in trial and sentencing.
This mismanagement of the DA's office was reported in December when it should have been reported before the election in 2022, but the local news media failed.
Another good example of biased liberal/leftist reporting by the local news media is their coverage and description of Proposition A. The local news reports emphasize preventing SAPD arrests related to abortions and the legalization of marijuana. However, they ignore the part about lowering the arresting powers for theft and graffiti which weakens the local police and favors more criminal activities.
If Proposition A passes in May 2023, the local news media will undoubtedly question within months why the crime rate continues to rise once again.
The hostile work environment in the Bexar County District Attorney is a problem created by a George Soros-funded politician, Joe Gonzales, and the local mainstream news media ignores the story. Liberal and leftist policies and actions have resulted in crime in the street and chaos in the halls of justice, and the public’s safety is at risk.
