Socialist Group Admits Joe Kimok Endorsement Is A “Tactic” To Abolish Broward State Attorney’s Office

Why do Dream Defenders Love Stalin, Mao, and Kimok?

When not urging followers to read books by Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin or Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong, the radical Dream Defenders group wants to remake State Attorney Offices all across the United States. Backed by liberal groups and supporters like George Soros, radical prosecutors have taken over in San Francisco, New York, and St. Louis. Now, Dream Defenders want to remake the Broward State Attorneys Office with the goal of destroying the office.

Since late May, a coalition of radical activists including Broward Dream Defenders and Broward Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) organized local protests under the Black Lives Matter. Now, with the August election fast approaching, Broward Dream Defenders want supporters to vote for radical Broward State Attorney candidate Joe Kimok in the Democrat primary.

Last year, REDBROWARD exposed Joe Kimok’s radical ideas like legalization of sex work and the legalization of all drugs including heroin. During a November 2019 candidate forum, Kimok said drug users “shouldn’t spend any amount” of jail time. Declaring the War On Drugs is a “War on People,” Kimok said any “real discussion” of criminal justice reforms requires talking about “decriminalizing crack, heroin and meth.”

Kimok did not stop with drugs. An audience member asked whether the candidates favored the legalization of “sex work.” Kimok said he did favor legalization.

“[Criminalizing sex work] makes the lives of the workers-that decide to do this-more dangerous, more unhealthy,” Kimok said. “And makes them more likely to be a victim of human trafficking.”

Kimok said, “By driving [sex work] underground, it opens it up to these workers being, uh uh uh uh, selected based on their race, if transgender and without any public safety benefit.”

A few weeks later REDBROWARD revealed more of Kimok’s stunning views on criminal reform. In a Facebook post, Kimok said feeling safe means “being safe from violence and being safe from police and the [criminal justice] system.”

Kimok promised to “stop charging ‘quality of life’ and poverty based crimes. Is this similar to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s comments about rioters are just mothers stealing bread to feed their kids?

The average Broward voter may think such radical views are disqualifying for a State Attorney, but the Dream Defenders love it.

The Dream Defenders gave Joe Kimok an A- on their endorsement report card.

Joe Kimok’s radical views get high marks

Dream Defenders gave Joe Kimok an A- on his agenda to “end the war on poverty” which includes decriminalization of sex work, homelessness and drugs. Kimok got an A- for his views on “decarcerate and expand alternatives” to jail which include lowering jail population and ending prosecution of “low-level offenses.”

Joe Kimok received A- grades for his views to “protect immigrant communities” and “transparency and accountability.” His lowest score, a B- grade was given for his “let kids be kids” views. Dream Defenders thinks Joe Kimok should stop charging children and close all youth jails.

“TATIC” FOR LONG TERM GOAL

You may think these are the usual left-wing goals of a radical group seeking a seat at the table. According to the Broward Dream Defenders leadership, you would be wrong. The group does not want a seat at the table. Their long-term goal is the destruction of the table and all its chairs.

On a conference call earlier this month, Quayneshia Smith reiterated that Dream Defenders was an abolitionist group. Smith said their endorsement in the State Attorney race does not conflict with their goals to abolish prisons and police departments though the “defund the police” movement.

Smith said:

To make it clear…we’re abolitionists. Our goal with endorsing [Joe Kimok] is a tactic. The goal…the long-term goal for us is to not have a State Attorney’s Office. That’s the goal. If we don’t have a State Attorney’s Office people are not getting locked up. People are not getting arrested, right?

Can Broward County survive without a State Attorney?

Do Democrat voters want to turn Coconut Creek, Fort Lauderdale and Pembroke Pines into mini-San Franciscos?

Perhaps all the prosecutors and support staff at Broward SAO should polish up their resumes?

Broward State Attorney Wannabe Says He Wont Prosecute “Quality Of Life” Crimes

Joseph Kimok, the “progressive” candidate for State Attorney, wants to usher in a “new generation of justice” in Broward County. Based upon his recent comments, Kimok’s radical criminal justice reform platform would keep the Broward Jail empty. Last week, Kimok told Broward Democrats it was time to discuss the decriminalization of hard drugs like crack cocaine, heroin and meth. Kimok even endorsed the legalization of “sex work.”

On Facebook, a local resident asked Kimok for specifics about his criminal justice reform plans. Kimok responded with a litany of progressive ideas like ending cash bail, mandatory minimum jail sentences and “stop-and-frisk.” Kimok said he would stop arrests for drug possession and stop seeking search warrants for drugs. Kimok criticized the death penalty and vow to reduce life without parole sentencing.

Kimok said feeling safe means “being safe from violence and being safe from police and the [criminal justice] system.”

QUALITY OF LIFE CRIMES?!?

In his Facebook response to the voter, Joseph Kimok promised to “stop charging ‘quality of life’ and poverty based crimes. What does this mean? Is this the mother stealing bread and milk from Publix to feed her kids? Is there an epidemic of these cases?

According to a left-wing organization, “The term ‘quality of life’ is thought to have first been used in a policing context in New York City in the early 90s….refers to a practice of heavily policing a number of normally non-criminal activities such as congregating and/or drinking in public spaces, as well as minor offenses such as graffiti, public urination, panhandling, littering, and unlicensed street vending in public spaces because, the argument goes, if left unchecked, they will lead to an explosion of serious crime.”

Kimok’s radical platform parrots the plans of other progressive state attorney candidates across the United States.

Last week, Chesa Boudin, a far left radical, was elected District Attorney in San Francisco. In his victory speech, Boudin mentioned “quality of life” crimes.

“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes,” Boudin said. “Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted. Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted; we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness.”

Kimok appears to be a big fan of Chesa Boudin.

Does Joseph Kimok plan on reshaping Broward in the image of San Francisco?

What happens if drug users set up camp along Las Olas or A1A?

What if tent cities pop up along Sistrunk Blvd or Weston Road or Holmberg Road?

What if drug users shoot up heroin in the playground at the Museum of Discovery and Science?

What if drug users defecate at the entrance of the Center for Performing Arts or the Sawgrass Mills Mall?

Would Kimok accept “poverty” as a defense to all crimes?

Would State Attorney Joseph Kimok prosecute anyone in Broward County?

REDBROWARD reached out to Joe Kimok for a definition of “quality of life” and poverty based crimes. Kimok did not respond to our request for comment.

Broward State Attorney Candidate Says Decriminalize Meth, Crack & Sex Work

If Joe Biden thinks marijuana is a gateway drug, he may want to steer clear of Broward County. At a Plantation Democratic Club debate last week, the candidates for Broward State Attorney fielded a question about marijuana use. Six of the seven candidates delivered variations of the fashionable “civil-citation-small-amounts-no-jail” answer. But self described “progressive” candidate went further. Way further.

The audience seemed stunned when Joseph Kimok said there must be a discussion regarding the decriminalization of hard drugs.

Kimok said drug users “shouldn’t spend any amount” of jail time. Declaring the War On Drugs is a “War on People,” Kimok said any “real discussion” of criminal justice reforms requires talking about “decriminalizing crack, heroin and meth.”

Kimok did not stop with drugs. An audience member asked whether the candidates favored the legalization of “sex work.” Kimok said he did favor legalization.

“[Criminalizing sex work] makes the lives of the workers-that decide to do this-more dangerous, more unhealthy,” Kimok said. “And makes them more likely to be a victim of human trafficking.”

Kimok said, “By driving [sex work] underground, it opens it up to these workers being, uh uh uh uh, selected based on their race, if transgender and without any public safety benefit.” Um, ok.

Remember, Joseph Kimok wants to be the Broward State Attorney, not the Public Defender. The State Attorney prosecutes crimes. The State Attorney charges and tries criminals in the name of victims and the community.

From his answers, it is likely Joseph Kimok would prefer to keep Broward jail cells empty.

Why?
