Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is pushing forward in his efforts to end woke agenda, suspending a prosecutor who failed to uphold his duty.
"The DeSantis administration is continuing in its efforts to champion law and order and hold woke prosecutors accountable, sending a letter to Ninth Judicial Circuit State Attorney Monique H. Worrell concerning a suspected murderer who remained on the streets after Worrell’s office allegedly failed to prosecute him for previous crimes," reported Breitbart News.
"As you are well aware, our state suffered inexplicable tragedy last week when a series of shootings in Pine Hills left three people dead — a mother, her nine-year-old daughter, and a news reporter — and at least two others injured," the letter DeSantis's office detailed.
The letter continued, noting that the man arrested for those crimes — Keith Melvin Moses — "has been allowed to remain on the streets after multiple arrests, including one your office has refused to prosecute."
"This man has also been identified as a 'known gang member' with what the governor’s office described as an 'extensive criminal history, including aggravated battery, assault, and grand theft,'" reports Breitbart.
"The office walked through some of Moses’ other offenses, citing an arrest affidavit from November 2021, when Moses was arrested for 'possession of cannabis < 20 grams.' However, the affidavit further states that Moses, as well as the others he was in association with, had 'multiple firearm possession charges, to include Attempted First-Degree Murder and Armed Robbery with a Firearm and all had ski mask style masks on them or in the vehicle,'" reported Breitbart.
"We are going to make sure that our laws are enforced and that no individual prosecutor puts himself above the law," DeSantis said, adding that the "constitution of Florida has vested the veto power in the governor, not in individual state attorneys."
"When you flagrantly violate your oath of office, when you make yourself above the law, you have violated your duty," DeSantis said.
