Legal experts are picking their jaws up from the floor after this head-scratching verdict

Crime has become a part of daily life for millions of Americans.

This is especially true for those living in Democrat controlled states and cities which have largely surrendered to criminals.

However legal experts were floored after this shocking verdict made national headlines.

San Francisco’s latest verdict demonstrates that criminals run the show

Few American cities suffer from crime quite like San Francisco, which has practically morphed into America’s crime capital.

But last April, San Francisco made headlines for a crime so heinous that even many on the left called for action.

In April of 2023, Donald Carmignani, who previously served as the fire commissioner for San Francisco, was allegedly beaten over the head with a metal pipe by a homeless man.

The suspect, Garret Doty, faced two counts of assault and one count of battery as a result.

However, last Friday, the courts found Doty not guilty on all charges, allowing him to go back onto the streets without any punishment for his brutal attack on Carmignani. 

Deputy Public Defender Kleigh Hathaway, who represented Doty in this case, claimed that Doty acted in self-defense, justifying his use of a metal pipe which left the former fire commissioner with 51 stitches, clinging to life.

In a statement, Hathaway said “From the beginning, it was clear to me that Mr. Doty was acting in self-defense against Mr. Carmignani, who not only had the audacity to attack Mr. Doty with bear spray and then threatened to stab and kill Mr. Doty, but also presented himself as unwilling to back down from a fight that he had started.”

Hathaway added, “Self-defense can be fierce because the brain goes into survival mode, and that fear response is sadly heightened for unhoused people, like Mr. Doty, who live in constant exposure.”

Carmignani however claims that Doty and his friends are part of a rogue criminal gang, who attack business owners in the area on a regular basis. 

Following his attack, Carmignani told the press that “As a native San Franciscan and lifelong Marina District resident, I firmly believe that the city needs to promote the safety of its law-abiding citizens over those who chose to do drugs and commit violent acts in our streets.”

He added, “I am hopeful that this unfortunate incident will lead to policy changes to better protect the interests of San Francisco residents and that my attackers will be fully prosecuted.”

Unfortunately, Carmignani’s attacker will walk free following last Friday’s verdict, devoid of any punishment for the damage he did to this former city official.

Carmignani’s attacker walks free as the city of San Francisco suffers from crippling crime

Following the brutal attack on Donald Carmignani last year, many legal experts believed this case could finally convince lawmakers to focus on crime within the city by the bay. 

Instead, his attacker walks free, and many fear that this case will set a precedent for other judges to side with violent homeless attackers. 

No further details have emerged about an appeals process for Carmignani, however it almost goes without saying that he and his family are devastated with this outcome.
