Both literally and figuratively. Violent LA crime wave, Jacqueline Avant slay result of liberal reforms: critics
The old saying that "A Conservative is a Liberal who has been mugged," is coming into its own in Los Angeles.
A wealthy couple living in Beverly Hills. They employed an on-site guard. Their home was broken into, and she was killed. That is the story of the fatal shooting of Jacqueline Avant.
You can click thru for the details, and the background of how California's Justice System decided to turn everyone loose, and basically abandon the rule of law.
The cops are frustrated.
“It’s a s–t show over here,” said LAPD Det. Jamie McBride, a director of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, a police union. “Bad guys are released quicker than we can finish the paper work, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.”
The reactions of the wealthy Liberals of LA is what I found most interesting. They are beginning to realize that Law and Order are important. That they are NOT protected by their zip codes, and other fun stuff.
After destroying security for the state at large, they want to remove themselves for the chaos they've engendered.
“Today there was another incident on Bedford Drive,” Vida Ardebilchi said in an interview. “Somebody went into the house at seven in the morning and got trapped in a room. The SWAT team was called and then he [the intruder] slit his wrists when he realized he could not get out. He slit his wrists and died in the house. There was another incident where a guy got attacked on Sunset Strip and got shot in the head for his Rolex watch.”
Ardebilchi said that members of the community now want to build gates for their street and hire more private security.
So they defund the police for everyone, and then fund "private security" for themselves. Sounds like the feudal system.
Most of the Liberals are in the "how did this happen?" phase, which still contains a bit of denial.
This reaction in particular made me laugh.
“People get followed home and then they get robbed,” McBride told The Post. “The only thing missing from LA is Kurt Russell driving up in an eye patch, like in ‘Escape From New York.’ It all goes back to our liberal politics.”
Some things are true, even if you don't believe them. Liberals are beginning to find that out. I don't expect them to change much, from the learning experiences, at least not in the short term. They would have to admit that they were wrong about some of their cherished beliefs.
