L.A. District Attorney to Disband Critical Gang Unit

Los Angeles District Attorney, George Gascón announced he will severely downsize or eliminate the city’s Hardcore Gang Unit.

“It’s one of the oldest units in the office and it’s responsible for prosecuting the most heinous and complex gang-related crimes in the county,” writes Bill Melugin for Fox 11.

‘Gang Members Are Laughing’

Los Angeles County prosecutors told Fox 11 they are already frustrated by the limitations Gascón has placed on them since he took office in December 2020. The city is in the middle of a crime surge, and prosecutors fear it may become even more dangerous.

“We can already hear in jail calls and interviews with officers on the street telling us that the gang members are laughing at them,” one of the Prosecutors told Fox 11. “I mean it’s undermined the credibility of law enforcement in its entirety.”

Last week, Gascón decided against pursuing the death penalty for an admitted gang member who murdered police officer Keith Boyer, Fox News reports. Boyer and his partner were responding to a traffic collision. The gang member shot both officers, killing Boyer, as he fled from the scene.

Deputy District Attorney Garrett Dameron said he was ordered to drop the death penalty in the case, against his objections.

Boyer’s stepfather, Don Clark, said he was sickened by the way Gascón treats crime victims and their families.

“It seems like the criminals are getting the upper hand under Gascón’s leadership,” Clark said on Fox and Friends.

‘Skyrocketing Crime’

Gascón was financially backed by European multibillionaire George Soros in the 2020 election. Soros has been linked to the election of radical prosecutors across the country in an effort to undermine the nation’s criminal justice system, Breitbart reports.

“Billionaire Democratic donor George Soros bankrolled the successful campaigns of a new crop of district attorneys who now preside over big cities with skyrocketing crime and frayed relationships with police departments,” writes James Varney for the Washington Times.

Several Soros-backed district attorneys have stopped prosecuting crimes such as disorderly conduct, vagrancy, and loitering, the Washington Times reports.

Crime has surged in St. Louis since Soros-backed prosecutor Kimberly Gardner took office in January 2017. The conviction rate has dropped by 20 percent, Fox reports.

Larry Krasner was elected district attorney of Philadelphia in 2017 after receiving $1.7 million from an independent political action committee connected to Soros. Krasner published a sanctuary policy and appointed an “immigration counsel” to create “immigration-neutral” outcomes immediately upon taking office.

Some of the immigrants assisted by the immigration counsel include “defendants who have been charged with rape, murder, rape of a child, forcible rape, sexual assault, unlawful contact of a minor, attempted murder, among other crimes,” Breitbart reports.

Soros-backed Cook County Illinois District Attorney, Kimberly Foxx hired a legal advisor in her office to assist illegal immigrants “to ensure that non-citizen defendants do not face unnecessary immigration consequences, particularly for misdemeanor and low-level offenses,” as documented in a Cook County Attorney Statement of July 11,2019. This move helps illegal immigrants avoid ICE, Breitbart reports.

“There are several progressive groups putting anti-prosecutors in office,” Attorney Luis Robles told Budget and Tax News. “It’s continuing to snowball, and it’s turning the entire district attorney role on its head. They are now protecting the criminals they once prosecuted.”

‘No Longer Protects Regular People’

Robles says the progressive attorneys make their local police departments and prosecutors useless.

“If these D.A.s will no longer prosecute crimes, they render their units completely ineffective and eliminate any deterrence to crime,” Robles said.

It is no surprise that crime is increasing in cities with progressive district attorneys, Robles says. The focus on rehabilitation and diversion allows criminals to remain at large and commit more crimes, overriding the purpose of law enforcement, which is to deter crime, Robles says.

“Helping criminals all sounds really nice, but the result is that the system no longer protects regular people,” Robles said. “They [progressive D.A.s] have trouble putting someone away who is a danger to society. Think of the cost of crime and loss of life.

“Even if there’s no rehabilitation, prison is prevention,” Robles said.

People should be outraged as the number of people robbed, beaten, sexually assaulted, and shot continues to rise in these cities, but there is little public outcry because the media cover up the problem by reporting crime selectively.

“Most people are oblivious to how the law is not being enforced,” Robles said. “The poor people in low-income neighborhoods know because they are largely the victims. They know the system is not working. Suburbanites don’t have a clue.”
