Residents in Alamosa, Colorado are fed up with District Attorney Alonzo Payne – also known as “Let ‘em Go Alonzo”.
According to the Gazette, Alonzo is the talk of the town for failing to confront the crime epidemic in the town and it’s gotten so bad that the Alamosa City Council has now voted to fund a recall of the Bernie Sanders styled District Attorney.
Gazette Editorial: “Payne is a former public defender who proudly ran — winning by a 62% margin in the Democratic primary — on a Bernie Sanders-endorsed platform to “reduce incarceration and stop the criminalization of poverty in southern Colorado.” The DA, who wouldn’t comment to The Gazette, has been nicknamed “Let ‘em Go Alonzo” by the people because not one of more than 40 narcotics cases local police shared in nine months went to trial.”
