Mass railway looting in Los Angeles | Street Shorts
To give some context, the area this was filmed at is the heart of an ongoing railway theft spree. This has been happening for months and was only recently brought to the public's attention. Under Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, many of those arrested for railway theft are back on the streets within 24 hours. Almost none of those arrested are ever prosecuted. According to Gascón this is due to "insufficient evidence." In a recent letter from Union Pacific to Gascón on Dec 20, 2021, it was revealed that over 90 containers are compromised per day. The letter goes on to state that despite over 100 railway theft arrests having been made, Union Pacific has NOT ONCE been contacted about follow up court proceedings, meaning prosecution is non existent. Finally the letter states that there has been a 160% increase in railway theft over the last year. None of this should come as a surprise, it is the direct result of a weak and woke District Attorney who puts the whims of the leftwing mob (a vocal minority) above the general welfare of the people of Los Angeles. After Gascón was sworn in as Los Angeles D.A, he issued "Special Directive 20-07" which listed a host of misdemeanor offenses which were to be declined or dismissed before arraignment. The offenses include trespassing, disturbing the peace, driving with no license or a suspended license, making criminal threats, drug possession, drinking in public, loitering to commit prostitution and resisting arrest and more. Cities and states that put wokeisms before rule of law will remain in a death spiral and scenes like this will continue to be the norm. How much worse will it get before the people of Los Angeles wake up from their stupor and do something to stop their city from collapse?
