LOS ANGELES, California — Seventeen gangs are targeting the city’s wealthiest residents, often following them out of stores and restaurants before robbing them, according to a new task force of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday on the results of an investigation into the phenomenon of “follow-home” or “follow-off” robberies, which have been part of a major crime wave experienced by residents over the past few years. The Times reported: More than a dozen Los Angeles gangs are targeting some of the city’s wealthiest residents in a new and aggressive manner, sending out crews in multiple

A $30 Timex tells the same time as a $30,000 Rolex. People who wear expensive watches and jewelry are entitled snobs who just love showing off. It's all that really motivates them. They deserve what they get.

I was followed home to my middle class neighborhood because I owned a VW bug. They were the steal and strip cars of the day in the '70's. I feel their pain.

FTA: Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón blamed Avan’ts murder on the criminal justice “system” He's correct it is morons like Gascón who don't put away criminals for life. Gascón is another Soros DA that if he was on fire I wouldn't spit on him.

Watch out, California. And, for that matter, all of us. When wealthy libs get stung, they go all Fascist on EVERYONE. They have NO sense of propriety or proportion; "zero tolerance" is their religion in all things that don't indulge and cater to them. Normal people realize they need to be wary, and maybe a bit pro-active in their personal behavior and defense. OTOH, the unicorn-and-rainbows crowd that likes to be all rosy and "loving" in their public life goes completely psychotic Nazi when they get burned by their stupidity and "tolerance".

This is the state and city which disarms the victim. Now they want more gun and ammunition laws that absolutely do not disarm criminals. And the government will not lock up repeat criminals. Gee. Why don't gun laws work?

Time to use some situational awareness, and have a gun, too. I have, on more than one occasion, noticed a car "following me", making the same turns as I did three or four times. Coincidence or someone following? I have driven past my home and turned down another street, then another wrong way until the "following car" went another way, then headed back home. Paranoid or just careful? I have many friends who are police officers, and often the topic of discussion has turned to recent crimes, like follow home robberies...and trying to learn how to be less likely to be a victim seems a good response to this added information. Pretty pro-criminal attitude with some commenters who apparently are pretty deep into some 10th Commandment violation, it would seem. A person should be safe with an expensive car or clothes, jewelry if we had a civil society. Blaming the victim is pretty obnoxious, this is caused by criminals, not people with nice things.

#1, My Rolex is a tool, one I use daily. And my Timex is worthless 30 feet underwater looking at bridge pilings. But the larger point is, it is my RIGHT to spend my hard earned cash however I want to, not that my ability to buy nice things means I am a snob and deserve to get robbed.

I feel that anyone has the right to spend their money and enjoy nice things if they choose. There are things I cannot afford but that does not mean I envy or have jealousy for people who can. It is not the right of someone to decide and judge what someone should or should not have from the fruits of their labor. We should keep our eyes on our own wallet. The only exception I have is politicians that enjoy the high life at taxpayer expense.

A Louisiana woman is accused of killing her young granddaughter by forcing her to drink a bottle of whiskey while her mother watched. Roxanne Record, 53, and Kadjah Record, 28, each face first-degree murder charges after police responded to the scene to find the latter’s 4-year-old daughter, China Record, unresponsive and with a blood alcohol level of .680% — more than eight times the .08% BAC driving limit for adults, according to police records. China Record died at the scene, officials said.

When attempting to predict the next wave of leftist insanity, it’s always smart to look to California, the land where Babylon Bee-style parody five years ago is inevitably tragic reality now, and the absurdist parody being written today is likely just a few months down the pike, if not already there. So naturally, in 2020 the land of fruits and nuts became the first state to establish a real-live “task force” to study the issue of slavery reparations. That task force made news earlier this month by voting to limit any compensation plan to, according to The Guardian, “descendants of enslaved and free

The Sacramento Bee reports that Martin is charged with “assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.” The Los Angeles Times points out Martin’s gun had allegedly been stolen and was converted into a fully automatic weapon, and he will face charges for those things as well. Martin was convicted in 2018 and received a ten-year sentence but was released early from prison, despite DA Schubert’s opposition to the early release.

The formal announcement implies that the president will not block the border-opening plan by his deputies.
