LA County DA, George Gascon, who was backed in his election by George Soros and maintains soft-on-crime policies, allowed a violent gang member to go free in the city. That gang member has now been blamed for the death of two police officers, Cpl. Michael Paredes and Officer Joseph Santana. The NY Post reports:
The felon — who had his gang allegiance tattooed on his face — was free even though he was accused of breaking his probation by illegally carrying a gun.
US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was among those slamming Gascon after the DA issued a statement offering “heartfelt condolences” to the slain cops’ grieving loved ones.
“Officers Paredes and Santana gave their lives in the service of their fellow citizens,” Cruz tweeted late Wednesday.
“It is outrageous the murderer was not in jail due to the reckless actions of George Gascon, a radical, soft-on-crime, Soros-backed DA,” the Texas senator wrote.
Kurt Schlichter, an Army veteran and lawyer with more than 450,000 followers on Twitter, went even further.

“Gascon flat out murdered those guys,” he tweeted angrily. “Recall this piece of garbage.”
Jennifer Van Laar, managing editor of conservative outlet Red State, said she was “heartbroken and mad as hell.”
“George Gascon, you are getting police officers — and lots of other people — murdered. TIME TO GO,” she tweeted.
Kevin Dalton, a candidate for the LA Board of Supervisors, also said the cops “should still be alive today if not for the policies of George Gascon.”
“George Gascon should be charged with accessory to murder x 2,” he tweeted.
Cop-killer Flores had been prohibited from carrying a gun since 2011, but was free despite pleading no contest in February 2021 to possessing a firearm as a felon, the Los Angeles Times revealed Wednesday.
Action Line: Americans should be able to rely on their DAs protecting them, not the criminals who harm them. Soros-backed DAs need to go. If you live somewhere with a Soros-backed DA, it’s time to look for a better America. If you need help getting started, click here to sign up for my free monthly Survive & Thrive letter.
