Soros-backed DA demands judge be disqualified from all criminal cases after rejection of deal for alleged killer

Another George Soros-backed district attorney has emerged from under the billionaire’s rock of wokeness to chip away at America’s rule of law, this time in the vicinity of San Francisco, California.

Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price demanded in a Wednesday YouTube video that Alameda County Superior Court Judge Mark McCannon be disqualified from “hearing any criminal cases” her office prosecutes after he rejected a plea deal for Delonzo Logwood, a suspect in three killings over the span of one year.

According to Price, McCannon “overstepped his boundaries as a judicial officer and has created a firestorm of prejudicial comments that do not, in my view, serve justice,” though she fails to explain exactly which boundaries were violated.

Price’s office brokered a deal for Logwood in which he would plead no contest to voluntary manslaughter in a 2008 shooting that left Eric Ford, 22, dead, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

In exchange for his plea, Logwood would see murder charges against him in the 2008 deaths of Zaire Washington, 24, and Richard Carter, 30, dropped.

“Please forgive me,” Logwood told McCannon during the hearing. “I’m sorry.”

But the judge was having none of it.

“You can’t think an apology will make this all better,” he told the defendant, according to The Mercury News. “What are you sorry for if you didn’t do anything?”

In her video, Price states that she “can’t talk about the evidence” in the Logwood case, but assured her viewers that her office has “reviewed the case extensively to make sure that it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.”

“It is against a prosecutor’s ethics to try a case in the public, as some reporters are demanding that I do,” she continued in her very public video. “I will provide more details about that case at the proper time.”

For now, YouTubers would just have to take her word for it: Judge McCannon should be disqualified.

“The judge is supposed to be an impartial referee managing cases that come before him,” Price said. “Because of Judge McCannon’s inappropriate comments and conduct on two separate occasions, my office will file a motion to disqualify him from hearing any criminal cases being prosecuted by our office.”

In a motion obtained by The Chronicle, Price accused McCannon of being “prejudiced against the District Attorney’s Office.”

“Declarant, Pamela Y Price, on behalf of and incorporating by reference all criminal matters filed by the District Attorney’s office, believes that we cannot have a fair and impartial trial or hearing or any criminal procedure before this judicial officer,” it read.

Price was not in court for that hearing.

Had she been, she would have heard Judge McCannon deny her motion.

“I did not go to the press and make any statements,” the judge said in court on Wednesday. “Because I didn’t agree with you doesn’t mean I’m biased.”

He then set a trial date for Logwood’s case on April 17.
