In our interview with Lars Larson, we spoke about district attorney Mike Schmidt and how his political beliefs have influenced his prosecution decisions.
Mike Schmidt issued a formal written policy in which he openly allowed criminal activity by his political allies in support of a political agenda. In the same breath, he has been prosecuting those who do not have the same political viewpoints.
We've scoured the case law in all the federal circuits in the US, and have found no DA who has ever issued a formal written policy in which political beliefs are so deeply ingrained.
Politics have nothing to do with prosecution. Mike Schmidt's pro-crime policies for those who share his political belief go against the norms that we've seen in past prosecutors.
We've brought a case to federal court and requested documents that show how this formal non-prosecution policy was created, and aim to restore justice and hold Mike Schmidt accountable for his unjust political prosecutions.
