Sheriff Alex Villanueva called into the John & Ken Show today to announce his support to recall LA District Attorney George Gascon.
Listen to Sheriff Villanueva articulate why Gascon's policies are tragic for LA County public safety.
In 2020, Los Angeles saw the most murders in a decade. Victims shot in South Los Angeles are compared to the previous year. Gun possession arrestsin the last 6 months of 2020, according to the California District Attorneys Association.
With these horrific statistics, many want to know why Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón defended a law Thursday that puts guns in the hands of criminals at the exact moment that Los Angeles County is descending into gun violence.
Assembly Bill 3234, by Assemblyman Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), which was passed last year by the California Legislature after being gutted and amended, created a diversion program allowing criminals to continue to own or possess guns.
“It’s a reckless law, but yesterday, George Gascón defended it,” said Vern Pierson, President of the California District Attorneys Association, and El Dorado County DA.
