Leftists/Progressives never take responsibility for policy failures: DA George Gascon edition

Woke Los Angeles DA George Gascón blames Union Pacific for freight train package thefts and blasts rail company's own security after Gov. Newsom admitted the railroad looked like a 'Third World country'

  • On Thursday, Governor Gavin Newsom visited a ravaged rail depot in the Lincoln Heights area of the city 
  • The Democrat lawmaker exclaimed: 'It looked like a third world country, these images, the drone images that were on the nightly news' 
  • In December, Union Pacific sent a letter to Gascón urging more aggressive prosecutions for cargo thieves and calling for an end to a no-bail policy 
  • UP said it experienced a 160 percent increase in criminal rail theft in LA County over the past year
  • Gascón's office previously said it was 'committed to working with law enforcement to ensure collective safety across LA´s sprawling infrastructure 
  • However, on Friday, Gascon wrote a strongly-worded letter back to Union Pacific saying they filed fewer criminal cases to his office than in 2019 and 2020
