Kamala Harris’ History Should Cause Concerns

    Steve Marshall writes at National Review Online about an alarming piece of Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris' past.

  • You might have forgotten the first time you heard the name Kamala Harris. It was probably 16 years ago, when Harris found Democrats, along with decent people of all political persuasions, united against her.
  • At the time, the story of a murdered California policeman had become national news amid widespread indignation over Harris's role in the case. Her actions revealed her true nature as a ruthless partisan committed über alles to the causes embraced by far-left ideologues - even when that commitment meant denying justice to a fallen officer and inflicting injustice on his family and law-enforcement colleagues.
  • On the night of April 10, 2004, San Francisco police officer Isaac Espinoza and his partner, Barry Parker, were patrolling the city's Bayview District. Despite Bayview's being a notoriously high-crime neighborhood filled with danger, a selfless sense of duty had led Officer Espinoza to request it as his assignment "because he felt he made the most impact as a cop there." ...
  • ... That was Officer Espinoza: a protector of the community, a devoted husband to his wife, and a doting father to his three-year-old daughter, cut down in cold blood.
  • Just three days after Espinoza's murder, before he had been laid to rest and without caring to call his widow, Harris, who was then the San Francisco district attorney, invited reporters and camera crews to a news conference to announce that she would not seek a death sentence in the case. Per the New York Times, she argued that doing so would "send the wrong message" and be "a poor use of money." But California assemblyman Joseph Canciamilla, a fellow Democrat, explained it better: "This is clearly a case where local politics took precedence over the facts of the case and a deliberative review of the circumstances."
