Soros L.A. County D.A. Slashes Gang Squad

Why would anyone live on the West Coast?

There are times in this country when it seems the average citizen has more to fear from elected officials than they do from any criminal. That perception is most pervasive on the West Coast. All three states bordering the Pacific Ocean are Bolshevik laboratories. Many of their elected officials, such as in San Francisco and Los Angeles, were put in office by campaigns funded by George Soros. In Los Angeles the Sorosgeld is bearing evil profits.

FNC: “Los Angeles County’s top prosecutor is reimagining, renaming and downsizing to eliminate a unit within his office that handles gang-related cases, sources told Fox News. The unit is slated to be ‘decentralized’ under George Gascon’s leadership, with a number of prosecutors in the Hardcore Gang unit expected to be transferred to other units. The unit currently has around 700 active cases. Branch offices will get a ‘Special Trial Lawyer/Gang Coordinator’ to assist prosecutors in absorbing the cases. No new gang or gun allegations will be filed…In addition to halting efforts to charge juvenile suspects as adults, Gascon has also barred his prosecutors from attending parole hearings to oppose the release of prison inmates, from seeking the death penalty and has done away with enhancement charges, which add a significant amount of time to the prison sentences of convicted criminal suspects. Recently, Gascon’s office blocked one of his prosecutors from filing gang enhancement charges against an MS-13 gang member accused of viciously assaulting a transgender woman inside a park.”

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva called the move a “suicide pact…While gang members are busy driving up LA County’s homicide rate, DA Gascon is now dismantling the Hardcore Gang Unit that works with local law enforcement,” he said. “This is not reform, this is beginning to look more like a suicide pact.”

“It is a sad day for LA. The Gang and Narcotics units have both been slashed in half,” Los Angeles prosecutor Jonathan Hatami said Wednesday. “This will lead to more violence on our streets and more victims in our communities. And it puts public safety at greater risk.”

How can a major American city protect its citizens from gang violence without a strong gang unit? However, perhaps that is not the point. In both Los Angeles and San Francisco hard left District Attorneys (in San Francisco the D.A. is the son of a communist terrorist) are likely intentionally making their cities uninhabitable. Why? Because they both hate this country and will do anything to hurt it. The voters in both cities wildly applaud these policies. At least, the voters who haven’t left there yet. They do so out of a misplaced sense of justice and a streak of masochism a mile wide. Sadly, as we may see in Minneapolis, it likely has spread far past the West Coast.
