A Los Angeles Times report indicates the suspect who shot and killed two El Monte, California, police officers Tuesday was on the streets because of L.A. District Attorney George Gascon’s policy undercutting the state’s “Three Strikes” law.
Breitbart News previously noted FOX News correspondent Bill Melugin’s tweet that the individual who killed two officers on Tuesday was a gang member who was out on the streets because of Gascón’s policies.
However, the LA Times’ report brings greater specificity to bear on the issue by pointing out that the particular policy that allowed the suspect to remain free on the streets was Gascon’s policy undercutting the “Three Strikes” law.
