Zachary Pelletier was arrested and charged with larceny after he stole a pro-life sign from a display and was caught by police on June 18th. To the dismay of many, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins has now dropped charges against the thief.

The dismissal of this case happened so quickly that there wasn't even time for a victim impact statement to be made. The perpetrator didn't have to pay any court fees, and Massachusetts residents are left to believe that Pelletier's behavior is acceptable. Constitutionally, it violates the first amendment and could even classify as a hate crime due to the political circumstances.

Catholic Action League Executive Director C. J. Doyle commented on the District Attorney's actions:
“The question remains whether the sidewalk counselors of Operation Rescue: Boston are the objects of official indifference due to ideological bias, or have simply become the latest victims of the reckless and revolutionary nihilism of Rachael Rollins, or both. Whatever the answer, given the repeated and unpunished attacks on Christians, conservatives and pro-life Catholics in Boston in 2019, it would seem that Massachusetts is becoming, politically, a Third World society.”
