LA’s Bloody Weekend

Breitbart CA– 19 people were shot last weekend in Los Angeles, and five were killed, as the city’s homicide rate continues to rise, despite a program instituted and championed by L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti to reduce crime in the city.

The Los Angeles Times reported that LAPD Chief Charlie Beck acknowledged that it had been a “very, very tough weekend” and that homicides had risen almost 11% in 2015. He added that gang-related crime was up roughly 15.6% from 2014.

Beck informed the weekly meeting of the Police Commission’s board that the majority of the shootings were triggered by gang violence.

Beck insisted that programs have been implemented to reduce violence: “This is not Dodge City. And unfortunately it looked a little too much like Dodge City this weekend.”

39 people were killed in Los Angeles in August, more than any month in six years.  read more

  1. The programs and policies won’t work, and we’ll know that when the pols start telling us that it wasn’t acts of gang violence, but accidental shootings during the celebration of Our Lady of Cucaracha or some other ethnic “festival”.

  2. What an amateur this guy is! The populations of NYC and L.A are each greater than Chicago’s, but the death toll in “Chiraq” is 325, versus 239 in NYC and 201 in L.A.

    Come on, L.A….you can catch NYC and Chicago! When you are #3 you have to try harder.

  3. Sh!tcago better watch it, because Eh-Lay is trying to become another Totally Gun Free Zone®.

    Seriously… we need to round up every single gang member in the whole country and put them into a fenced area in west Texas about the size of Connecticut.

    Give them each an automatic weapon and put caches of ammunition everywhere, so nobody ever runs out of rounds. Then, tell them that the single guy left standing gets amnesty and 50-million bucks in cash. Oh, and televise the whole thing on pay-per-view, with the proceeds going towards victims of gang violence.

  4. I did a job for a couple down at the beach who were both prison guards, they said if they won the lottery they’re going to open a spade and neuter clinic for abitual felons.

  5. Better yet, Trooper.

    When the last guy is standing, instead of giving him a check, we give him a grenade with the pin missing.
