For a moment, the disgraced Los Angeles County district attorney George Gascon was charged with a crime. The question now is: how long will this prisoner stay, will they complete their sentences, or will he be released early so that he can commit other crimes and cause havoc once again?
Gascon is now facing a recall and will be charging criminals instead of taking a soft-on crime stance. spoke on Tuesday night about the incident. The suspect had been charged.
” The point is guys, that he assaulted others before me, and he violated probation, and he violated paroles doing exactly the same thing,” Glass stated in an Instagram video. She said that she only heard about Glass because she was an Olympian. Things must change. Things have to change.”
As RedState’s Jennifer Oliver O’Connell reported, the attacker, Semeon Tesfamariam, is accused of throwing a 10-inch metal bolt at Glass’ face while Glass was walking in Downtown Los Angeles near a homeless encampment.
Tesfamariam was due for arraignment Tuesday. However, doubts about his ability to stand trial were raised so a second hearing was held for August 12.. Glass said:
” He’s clearly not mentally healthy and I feel for him very much. At the same time, feeling for somebody and holding them accountable doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive.”
As we reported this week, Gascon on Tuesday announced that Tesfamariam had been charged with assault using a deadly weapon. He is currently being held indefinitely. Gascon has released criminals on the streets even before sentencing has been completed. One incident saw a Gang member being freed early and then killing two El Monte officers.
Time and again Gascon has proven that he values criminals more than victims. Although it may sound absurd, this has been his reality ever since he was elected. Los Angeles County voters seem to have had enough of him and will recall him in November if it makes it onto the ballot. Through recalls and elections day, politicians like Mayor Eric Garcetti and Governor Gavin Newsom and other soft-on crime DA’s need to be held responsible. This type of behaviour will not stop if they’re not held responsible.
“He must be out of the streets. I hope he has the 11 year and more, and that, while doing that, he receives help .”
Glass ended with the following:
” The more we allow this to go on and the more they get out, they’re on the streets, and we know they’re not mentally or physically well. We put our citizens, our police officers, all of us in danger .”
She’s right. If we do not hold those responsible accountable for their crimes, then our society is at risk.
We should, of course, first and foremost bring the criminals to justice. When it comes time to vote, we must not forget the events. Gascon, a soft-on crime DA, should be remembered. Gavin Newsom made homelessness even worse by directing money to the problem, instead of opening rescue missions and investing in rehabilitation. He also knows that he can’t hire mental health workers and build shelters to stop people from encamping.
Until these things occur, homelessness is a problem. Some of those who are unable to afford housing will resort violence and it won’t end well. Los Angeles County can vote for Newsom in November. But, more important, it has the chance to recall Gascon. Los Angeles has an opportunity to elect Rick Caruso as a tough-on crime Mayor. He will prioritize the needs of the victims and address the homelessness crisis.
