I couldn’t believe me eyes when I read this headline :

San Fran­cisco city offi­cials to ask Kate Steinle’s fam­ily to dis­miss lawsuit

And the first para­graph tells us that they aren’t alone.

The U.S. gov­ern­ment and the City of San Fran­cisco are ask­ing Kate Steinle’s fam­ily to dis­miss the wrong­ful death law­suit in a hear­ing on Friday.

There is one obvi­ous ques­tion that comes to mind here, why?

Why on earth would the Steinle fam­ily con­sider even for a moment drop­ping their law­suit when the actions of these enti­ties were directly respon­si­ble for their daughter’s murder?

Why would they con­sider for a sec­ond let­ting these peo­ple off the hook when they know that only if there are con­se­quences for their actions will things change.

Now I under­stand why the gov­ern­ment would ask, after all they don’t want to be in court fil­ing the motion to dis­miss, that will look worse than this request does, but given the sit­u­a­tion I can’t fathom why they would think for a sec­ond that this fam­ily will bail them out when in a few short months they will have an ally in the White House?

Now you might be won­der­ing why the City of San Fran­cisco and the fed­eral gov­ern­ment aren’t rush­ing to do their best Jim Carey impersonation

and get this behind them. The answer is they dare not for two reasons.

  1. If they set­tle that is a tact admis­sion that there is some­thing wrong will allow­ing ille­gal aliens to be shel­tered by the city with penalty from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment, and our friends on the left dare not risk anger­ing their base by advanc­ing that meme.
  2. There are plenty of vic­tims of crimes by ille­gal aliens, if they set­tle this case, then you will see a plethora of such cases nation­wide and maybe even a class action by those who suf­fered finan­cial losses as opposed to death or injury. Such cases will destroy the polit­i­cal via­bil­ity of the defense of sanc­tu­ary cities and campuses.

So the best the gov­ern­ment can do is beg the fam­ily to let them off the hook in the hope they are fool­ish enough to do so.

Pathetic.

Clos­ing thought, I won­der what kind of pres­sure, if any, is being put on the fam­ily to play along?

I couldn’t believe me eyes when I read this headline :

San Francisco city officials to ask Kate Steinle’s family to dismiss lawsuit

And the first paragraph tells us that they aren’t alone.

The U.S. government and the City of San Francisco are asking Kate Steinle’s family to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit in a hearing on Friday.

There is one obvious question that comes to mind here, why?

Why on earth would the Steinle family consider even for a moment dropping their lawsuit when the actions of these entities were directly responsible for their daughter’s murder?

Why would they consider for a second letting these people off the hook when they know that only if there are consequences for their actions will things change.

Now I understand why the government would ask, after all they don’t want to be in court filing the motion to dismiss, that will look worse than this request does, but given the situation I can’t fathom why they would think for a second that this family will bail them out when in a few short months they will have an ally in the White House?

Now you might be wondering why the City of San Francisco and the federal government aren’t rushing to do their best Jim Carey impersonation

and get this behind them. The answer is they dare not for two reasons.

  1. If they settle that is a tact admission that there is something wrong will allowing illegal aliens to be sheltered by the city with penalty from the federal government, and our friends on the left dare not risk angering their base by advancing that meme.
  2. There are plenty of victims of crimes by illegal aliens, if they settle this case, then you will see a plethora of such cases nationwide and maybe even a class action by those who suffered financial losses as opposed to death or injury. Such cases will destroy the political viability of the defense of sanctuary cities and campuses.

So the best the government can do is beg the family to let them off the hook in the hope they are foolish enough to do so.

Pathetic.

Closing thought, I wonder what kind of pressure, if any, is being put on the family to play along?
