After domestic terrorists topple age-old monument, DA lets them skirt justice with no jail time

On Thursday, it was reported by the Santa Fe New Mexican that violent domestic terrorists who toppled a 153-year-old obelisk in the heart of Downtown Santa Fe will skirt by without any jail time.

Mary Carmack-Altwies, the District Attorney in the First Judicial District has “reached an agreement with all but one of the protesters charged in connection with the October destruction of the Santa Fe Plaza obelisk that will allow them to avoid jail time.”

“It was my promise upon assuming this position that our office would do our best to divert non-violent and first-time offenders from costly and unnecessary incarceration,” Carmack-Altwies said in a statement. “The Obelisk case defendants meet the criteria I set out for diversionary programming. We have reached a resolution after months of careful investigation and negotiation between defendants, their attorneys, and my office that ensures justice while working toward community healing.”

“The pre-prosecution diversion program consists of a combination of community service hours and a new approach rooted in restorative justice principles, which has been shown in other communities to lead to better outcomes for victims and those otherwise adversely impacted by crimes,” the District Attorney’s office wrote. 

“Both the presence of and the toppling of the Obelisk left people within our community deeply hurting,” Carmack-Altwies said in the statement. “I am pleased that we are pursuing a method of justice that will begin to heal those wounds. This is a new and innovative way of dealing with harm in the community that will move us closer to reconciliation.”

Mayor Alan Webber ordered police to stand down as the domestic terrorists ravaged the antique monument, which was dedicated to Union soldiers who helped end slavery in the fight against the Confederacy during the Civil War. 

The apparent pro-Confederacy “indigenous” protesters, led by The Red Nation, an anti-Hispanic hate group, will now not be forced to spend a single day behind bars due to the neo-liberal policies of supposed “restorative justice” instituted by Carmack-Altwies.

    Crazy and deeply wrong. It saddens me to see this happening in our beautiful state that once was proud of our agricultural roots.
