Murderer Set Free in St. Louis after Kim Gardner’s Prosecutors Fail to Show at Court Three Different Times

Murderer Set Free in St. Louis after Kim Gardner’s Prosecutors Fail to Show at Court Three Different Times

Last year the homicide rate in St. Louis City reached a 50-year high. In response, the radical city leadership eliminated nearly 98 police jobs.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported on Sunday:

A circuit judge dismissed a 2020 murder case last week and said the Circuit Attorney’s Office “abandoned its duty” after St. Louis prosecutors failed three times to show for court hearings or respond to a court order to produce evidence.

Circuit Judge Jason Sengheiser on Wednesday dismissed first-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful gun possession charges against Brandon Campbell, 30, after no one from the Circuit Attorney’s Office showed up for scheduled hearings in May, June and July.

“The court does not take this action without significant consideration for the implications it may have for public safety,” Sengheiser wrote in his order. “Although presumed innocent, (Campbell) has been charged with the most serious of crimes. While the court has a role to play in protecting public safety, that role must be balanced with adherence to the law and the protection of the rights of the defendant.”

Sengheiser continued, “The Circuit Attorney’s Office is ultimately the party responsible for protecting public safety by charging and then prosecuting those it believes commit crimes. In a case like this where the Circuit Attorney’s office has essentially abandoned its duty to prosecute those it charges with crimes, the court must impartially enforce the law and any resultant threat to public safety is the responsibility of the Circuit Attorney’s Office.”

This isn’t the first time Gardner acted against her oath.  She was behind the fraudulent accusations that resulted in the removal of Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.

Gardner also initiated the McCloskey case — then used it to run her campaign.

She’s clearly not behind justice as you can see from all her actions.

This country is being taken apart by crooked individuals who let criminals run free while indicting the innocent.  The job of prosecutors is to prosecute cases, not let murderers run free.
