Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has suspended a George Soros-backed prosecutor for failing to enforce state laws and will seek his dismissal.

DeSantis said Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren — who oversees the Tampa Bay area — will be removed from his post immediately.

DeSantis said Warren directed his office to let serious offenses slide and that he vowed not to enforce any current or future laws regarding abortion or gender-reassignment surgery on minors.

“We are not going to allow the pathogen that’s been around the country of ignoring the law, we are not going to allow that to get a foothold here in the state of Florida,” he said. “We are going to make sure our laws are enforced and no individual prosecutor puts himself above the law.”


Yeah, baby!

This is the guy pb wants to see being the US Attorney General's boss!

    Like all state attorneys, Andrew Warren had prosecutorial discretion as to which cases to pursue. Warren is the twice-elected state attorney for Hillsborough County. The people of Florida elected him.

    It's no surprise that a governor with authoritarian impulses would undo the will of the voters. And no surprise that HtS would applaud that.

    You may be correct, Curt. Here in Pennsylvania, there's a big stink because Philadelphia's woke DA Larry Krasner, who was recently reelection by a huuuuuuuuuge majority, is in the early stages of being impeached by the state legislature.

    Living fairly close to NYC, people are chompin at the bit for the GOP to be elected governor so he can fire Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.

    Prosecutors do have a responsibility to enforce the law.

    "Prosecutors do have a responsibility to enforce the law." --- HtS

    Wrong again. Enforcing laws is the responsibility of law enforcement, aka the police. It's not the responsibility of prosecutors.

    "The prosecutor generally serves the public and not any particular government agency, law enforcement officer or unit, witness or victim. When investigating or prosecuting a criminal matter, the prosecutor does not represent law enforcement personnel who have worked on the matter and such law enforcement personnel are not the prosecutor’s clients. The public’s interests and views should be determined by the chief prosecutor and designated assistants in the jurisdiction."

    C'mon, Jack. Gimme a break!

    You know you're wrong. So, your son arrests a serial child rapist and the DA says, "Nah, no big deal. Let em go."

    Has the been enforced?

    HtS,
    You are wrong, your subjective beliefs don't change that.

    Law enforcement describes the agencies and employees responsible for enforcing laws, maintaining public order, and managing public safety. The primary duties of law enforcement include the investigation, apprehension, and detention of individuals suspected of criminal offenses.

    In the case of a suspected child rapist, they may be found innocent. The DA may decide that the evidence is weak and not worth the tax payers money to prosecute. Or they may be convicted. None of those possible outcomes undoes the job of law enforcement. My son's job in done when the suspect is apprehended and up until the time that the DA and other attorneys are involved.

    If you still think you are correct, show me with a link where in a prosecutor's job description it says it's their responsibility to enforce the laws.

    This may be merely a matter of semantics.

    Certainly, prosecutors exercise discretion in prosecuting crimes.

    However, Chesa Boudin was recalled in San Francisco and George Gascon is likely to be recalled in Los Angeles for using poor judgment, in the minds of voters, in exercising their discretion.

    All of this varies by state but no one is disputing that DeSantis has the authority to fire this bozo in Florida and, clearly, one of the issues in the governor's race in New York is that Kathy Hochul isn't reigning in Alvin Bragg.

    Ultimately, this is a nation of laws. Prosecutors serve the law...established by the people's representatives. The law doesn't serve them.

    It probably will be disputed in court or in legal ruling. For one thing Warren wasn't fired, he was suspended. If DeSantis could have fired him without it being an issue he would have. Suspension is murkier. DeSantis will probably be required in to prove that Warren was negligent in his duties---mindful that prosecutors have discretion.

    Yes, voters have the right to recall most elected officials. That's not the same as a governor removing somebody from elected office.

    "Like all state attorneys, Andrew Warren had prosecutorial discretion as to which cases to pursue. Warren is the twice-elected state attorney for Hillsborough County. The people of Florida elected him."

    Yet again... you don't look into a state's constitution. (tisk, tisk). In Florida, the Governor has the obligation to fire a state's Attorney that does not follow state's constitutional law.

    Yup. That's the end of the story. And the people of the state are behind the governor. We actually appreciate that I have a right to protect my family. Not like those from left coast that are afraid of their own shadow. If this were the 1700's, we'd tar and feather him and have him ride out of town on a rail. We'd have to run him out for a bit to get in to gator country though... Maybe he can meet Hoffa?

    Suspended Florida prosecutor sues Gov. Ron DeSantis to get his job back
    Warren filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court, saying that the governor violated his First Amendment right to freedom of speech. Although he spoke in favor of abortion rights and gender-affirming medical care, Warren had not taken any action on those issues and his office had no cases pending. Warren was twice elected as state attorney, and Warren says DeSantis violated his right to freedom of speech and by his actions overturned an election.


    So it seems that DeSantis fired Warren for his opinions rather than for his actions (or lack of).

    pb said that the governor has the authority to fire the bozo.

    The clown now, apparently, is claiming that he was lying about how he'd do his job.

    That's a case I'd love to take to court.

    I'd love to have you be on the opposing side in a courtroom, HtS.
