Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva challenged NBA player LeBron James, who engages in left-wing activism promoting Democrats while off the court, to step up and double the reward money being offered to find the man who is responsible for shooting two sheriff’s deputies in the head late last week.
“This challenge is to Lebron James. I want you to match that and double that reward,” Villanueva said. “I know you care about law enforcement. You expressed a very interesting statement about your perspective on race relations and on officer-involved shootings and the impact that it has on the African-American community. And I appreciated that. But likewise, we need to appreciate that respect for life goes across professions, across races, creeds, and I’d like to see LeBron James step up to the plate and double that.”
CBS Los Angeles noted that there were two private pledges totaling $75,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the individual responsible
