It looks as if the elites in LA are no longer immune from the violence the average joe suffers.
Street violence continues to spiral out of control in California, as gangs organize crews to carry out attacks on the wealthy elite of Los Angeles.
More than a dozen Los Angeles gangs are targeting some of the city’s wealthiest residents with increasingly aggressive tactics. Gangs are sending crews out in vehicle convoys to find, follow, and rob Los Angelinos they find driving high-end luxury cars or wearing expensive jewelry.
SFGate reported that “in many cases, [gang members are] making off with designer handbags, diamond-studded watches and other items worth tends of thousands of dollars — if not more — and then peddling them to black-market buyers who are willing to turn a blind eye to the underlying violence.”
According to the police, some suspects in these robberies have been arrested but are soon released from custody, only to commit additional robberies.
No doubt these elites are the same people who supported the “defund the police” movement. Now that crime is leaving the inner city and touching them where they live and hang out, I wonder if the elites will change their tune and demand action. I want to see the looks on their faces when the police tell them, “We don’t have the manpower thanks to budget cuts. But hey, your stuff was insured, right?”Published in
