A new report from Breitbart exposes yet another part of Democrat vice presidential hopeful Kamala Harris’ sick record as a prosecutor.
In 2010, when Joe Biden’s now-running mate and California’s current junior senator was the district attorney of San Francisco, Harris’ office offered a plea deal to a man who Breitbart described as an “illegal alien” on charges of “driving without a license and driving without insurance.” The deal allowed him to remain in the United States and on the road despite his immigration status.
Months later, Roberto Galo struck and killed a college student in San Francisco.
An untimely death
According to Breitbart, Galo, who had been granted Temporary Protected Status, was driving in San Francisco on Nov. 16, 2010, when he hit Drew Rosenberg, a 25-year-old “second-year law student” who was riding a bicycle.
Galo reportedly “ran [Rosenberg] over twice before attempting to flee the scene of the crash.”
Breitbart added: “Galo stopped his car on Drew’s abdomen, prompting a group of bystanders to help lift the car off of him.” Rosenberg was killed in the incident, and Galo was charged with voluntary manslaughter.
Originally from Honduras, Galo was convicted and sentenced to six months in jail, though he was released after only 43 days, as Breitbart noted.
A preventable tragedy
Tragically, it seems it all could have been prevented if Harris’ office had done its job right the first time. As Breitbart reported, in June 2010, Galo was pulled over by the San Francisco police for driving the wrong way down a one-way street.
That incident led to multiple charges, but Harris’ office allowed Galo to plead guilty to just driving the wrong way, Breitbart noted. Galo accepted the deal, and was back on the road again in no time.
By that fall, Rosenberg was dead.
But wait, there’s more
Perhaps even more unfortunate is that this story isn’t a one-off. In another report, Breitbart exposed Harris’ failure to prosecute a member of the MS-13 street gang for a traffic offense, a move that the outlet alleged allowed that individual to later murder a man and his two sons. Yet another article from Breitbart showed that the “Back of Track” program instituted by Harris when she was San Francisco’s DA gave another illegal alien — who should have been in jail for a different crime — the opportunity to rob a 29-year-old woman and then run her over with her own car.
Is this really who we want as vice president? Considering the damage Harris has done in California, she probably shouldn’t even still be in Congress.
