San Francisco’s district attorney has come under fire for being too soft on violent crime.

The criticism is being levelled by the father of a six-year-old boy who was fatally shot last year while caught in the crossfire of four gunmen during Fourth of July fireworks, according to the dailymail.com.

In his first interview since his son’s death, Jason Young blamed D.A. Chesa Boudin for ensuring one of the killers will be free in fewer than 10 years.

Young, the father of Jace Young, told FOX News that Boudin is “out of touch and really dismissive” after charging one of the suspects, Deshaune Lumpkin, 17 at the time of the murder, as a minor.

“The police are doing their due diligence to try to solve these crimes and hold people accountable for these crimes,” Young told FOX.

“The district attorney’s office is not willing to prosecute and hold these criminals accountable. Because of the politics and the policies of the district attorney, there’s no accountability.”

Lumpkin’s eight-year maximum sentence was met with backlash.

The relatives of the slain boy say one of Boudin’s key campaign promises in 2019 was not to let those under 18 be tried as adults, no matter how horrible the crime.

His other critics say the 41-year-old’s approach to dealing with violent crime has allowed San Francisco to become a place where murders such as Jace’s are commonplace.

There was a 15% increase in homicides across San Francisco with 54 cases in 2021 compared with 47 in 2020.

“We’re doomed as a city,” Young told FOX from his Bayview home. “Especially with a district attorney like Chesa Boudin.”
