I'm pretty sure that recall effort would succeed rather quickly if he didn't prosecute this one to the fullest extent of the law.  Can't be soft on this one like he has been on so many others
 
2022-08-09 2:58:38 AM  
This is unusual for him, since he usually tries to get violent felons back out on the street as soon as possible.  But he's facing the strong possibility of a recall right now, so might have to pretend he actually cares about victims for once since this is high profile.

Pardon me for posting twice, but if you're not familiar with Gascon he's one of the key people who helped turn the Bay Area into a literal shiathole, and then when he succeeded at that (so it was no longer a challenge) he carpetbagged down to LA to see if he could turn also turn that into a shiathole and he's been doing a really good job of that.

I think there was video of this crash. She was doing like 70mph or something like that. It was bonkers. So sad.

90mph.

And he's only doing something on this because the threat of recall is real like the DA in San Francisco.

I think we need to retool the punishments but this guy isn't doing his job..

This. There is a pitiful right wing vendetta against him.
The right wingers failed to beat hi in an election, failed to recall him, and are again  spending millions of taxpayer dollars on a third wasted attempt to thwart the will of the voters.
The guy behind it is mostly Fascist Sheriff Villanueva, a politically ambitious, bullying cop who has been a parasite on Los Angeles for decades.
It's Villanueva and his gang member supporters we need to fire.

Nextdoor is literally the funniest shiat around. You just have to appreciate it for what it is. When I bought a house a few years ago (for the first time) I thought Nextdoor was some obligatory right of home ownership. Now it's a daily source of entertainment.

Yep.  As an Angeleno, I was really blind-sided by the spate of revealing Villanueva stories that have come out in the past year or so because when he was running for sheriff, he was running as the the anti-corruption candidate and he had so much support and praise.  But apparently, as soon as he got into office, he revealed himself for who he really is.  Maybe he'll eventually join his predecessors Baca and Tanaka in federal prison.

Recently, two cops were killed in the line of duty and somehow it's Gascon's fault.  There have been other officers killed in the line of duty - sadly, it happens - but I don't recall any other D.A.s being singled out as being culpable when these tragedies happen.  We're constantly hearing how crime is out of control - except that in spite of COVID-related upheaval driving an uptick in petty crime - our crime rate remains historically low.  I've noticed that the media reported breathlessly on a murder in my neighborhood not too long ago.  Granted, it was shocking since we don't get a lot of murders in this area, and the dynamic of white victim-black assailant is catnip to the media.  But was it representative of crime in the city overall?  No, I don't think so.  The man responsible was arrested in Pasadena without incident, and is in jail as the case against him is being built.  So is Gascon not doing his job, or not directing others to do their jobs?  No.

This woman is clearly responsible for the violent murders of these six people.  *I've* been having slight PTSD from it all because I live off of LaBrea Avenue and cannot tell you the number of times I've been in that intersection.  There is nothing to indicate that Gascon is only arresting her to "look good" or "avoid recall".  She would have been arrested by any D.A., in any jurisdiction, at any given time.

BeautifulOnes: So is Gascon not doing his job, or not directing others to do their jobs? No.


At some point one must ask - how many grabs at the ring are reasonable?
When Gascon ran for office, the local Lawn Order Right mounted a vigorous campaign against him.
They lost.
Then, they got a recall on a ballot, at an expense of millions of tax dollars, and lost again.
Now, they are engaged in another expensive and time consuming attempt to recall him, which they will probably lose.
Are these Nazi assholes going to be allowed to keep doing this over and over again, ad infinitum, at taxpayer expense?
It's re-Goddamn-diculous, as the Duke would say.

And Gascon was literally the Chief of the SFPD right before he was the DA, after a decades long career in the LAPD. I think it's even possible his terms overlapped.

How quickly they turn on you.

I get gas at that intersection all the time. The murderess came down a very long, fairly steep hill on La Brea into the intersection at Slauson. It's easy to pick up a lot speed there. If you were entirely oblivious of your surroundings, your own safety and the safety of others, it would be very simple for an accident like this to happen.

Eh there's a middle ground here.  Villanueva is human garbage, but Gascon is undercharging/not charging people on the regular while petty crime and low level violent crime is spiking, plus undercharging people against victim wishes(blocking prosecutors from attending parole hearings, blocking the application of charge enhancements/special circumstances, keeping violent crimes committed by teenagers out of adult court, blocking the prosecution of any misdemeanor and some low level felonies by juveniles, etc).

Here's an excerpt from one of his directives:
Filing deputies are instructed to NOT file any potential strike offense if the offender is 16 or 17 years of age at the time of the offense. The only exception to this policy shall be charges involving forcible rape and murder.
For example, all robberies will be filed, at most, as a grand theft person and/or assault by means likely to cause great bodily injury. For all open cases, a strike offense shall be withdrawn or refiled/amended as a non-strike offense, or vacated and replaced with a finding of a non-strike offense, or dismissed

So a 17 year old can shoot (but not kill) someone or beat someone half to death, but they'll only get charged with a crime that doesn't apply a strike(which basically all violent crimes are strike crimes: gun crimes, armed robbery, carjacking, kidnapping, etc)

Having a problem with this approach has nothing to do with sucking cop dick or approving of that shiathead Villanueva

My 2 cents:  Yeah, it's easy to treat that stretch [and La Cienega] as mini-freeways... I use them, too.   

But, it's not an excuse/reason.   

Even if someone breaks the law and gets in your path, steps in front of you jaywalking, whatever, and you're not doing anything wrong... you always have the obligation to safely try not to run your car into people, cars, buildings, things, etc. [except: cats.  Those murder-cats are merely getting their karmic payback.].
