Liberal leftist billionaire George Soros thought he had won a big victory when his candidate for state attorney in the Orlando, Fla.-based 9th Judicial Circuit, Aramis Ayala, won.

A Soros political action committee reportedly spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to get her elected. Florida was just one of the states which Soros had targeted as part of his national effort to reshape the American justice system in his own progressive socialistic image.

This effort included supporting the anti-cop "burn ’em like bacon" Black Lives Movement, as well as various violent groups and demonstrators protesting Donald J. Trump.

Just as Soros was probably patting himself on his back for his Florida victory, Ayala became mired in a major controversy. Ayala, the first black elected state attorney in the state, said she would not seek the death penalty for an accused cop killer, or in any other capital case.

Her actions infuriated Florida Gov. Rick Scott who reassigned 22 first degree murder cases to another prosecutor; one who supports the death penalty in a neighboring jurisdiction — including the case of the cop-killer Markeith Loyd.

Scott’s action angered many groups who came to her defense, including more than 100 former judges, law professors, two former state Supreme Court justices, a former American Bar Association president (who also served as president of Florida State University), the Florida Legislature’s Black Caucus; and the State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Ayala, and her defenders, challenged the governor’s authority to remove her from the cases. A judge upheld Scott’s action. Ayala's attorney says that "Scott's dangerous overreach threatens the independence and integrity of Florida's judicial system." Ayala is now suing Scott in both federal and state courts.

The governor is not the only official angry over Ayala’s position. Florida state legislators have approved plans to trim her office's budget by $1.3 million. GOP members of the Florida State House want Scott to oust her — for not doing her job.

Ayala, and the fact that she is the first elected black prosecutor, seems to be getting all of the attention and sympathy from various groups.

It’s too bad these groups and individuals were not as vocal in condemning the slaughter of three human beings — and the collateral death of another — at the hands of an alleged despicable killer, just as they are in condemning the governor. And, whom have they apparently forgotten?

Sadie Dixon, Markeith Loyd’s ex-girlfriend and her unborn baby, whom he is accused of killing; Orange County police office Master Sgt. Debra Clayton whom he allegedly shot and killed execution-style when she tried to arrest him; and, Orange County Deputy First Class Norman Lewis who was killed when his motorcycle was hit during the manhunt for Loyd.

Four dead human beings — all black — whose lives, it could be argued, Ayala felt were not worth as much as the life of the alleged black killer whose life she would spare. Markeith Loyd should live while they had no choice. They — are dead.

Does anyone really think Ayala would have taken the same position and gotten the same support if the alleged killer had been white and was responsible for the deaths of four black people? I would wager not. What hypocrisy!

What would the reaction have been in the South Carolina case of the nine blacks killed at a black church prayer meeting, by a white perpetrator, if prosecutors had said they would not seek the death penalty?

In announcing she would seek the death penalty in the case, Charleston County Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said, "This was the ultimate crime and justice from our state calls for the ultimate punishment."

Apparently, Ayala doesn’t think these four lives, or any lives taken by a killer, are worth the "ultimate punishment."Some believe this prosecutor probably would not have been elected if she had revealed to central Florida voters, during her campaign, that she opposes the death penalty.

In Florida, Soros has not limited his support just to potential prosecutors. He and his son have already given Tallahassee mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum financial support. Gillum has said that his city welcomes Syrian refugees. No wonder Soros wants him in the governor’s mansion.

The question is how many other Soros "Trojan horse" candidates will he recruit in 2018 in Florida — and elsewhere?
