Violent crime has forced The United States Postal Service to suspend service to one Santa Monica, CA neighborhood after multiple mail carriers were attacked.

Fox News reports:

The first incident happened on Jan. 19 when a resident living near the intersection of 14th Street and Arizona Avenue allegedly swung a broomstick at one carrier delivering mail in the early evening hours, according to CBS. The carrier reportedly was not injured in the attack.

Months later, residents recently received notices from the USPS informing them that delivery service has been hereby suspended to all addresses located in the 1300 block of 14th Street.

The notice explained that “multiple carriers have been subjected to assaults and threats of assault from an individual who has not been located or apprehended.”

A spokesperson for the Santa Monica Police Department told the outlet that the suspect is well known among officers, who’ve had several issues with him in the past, mostly related to domestic incidents.

It’s not clear when the suspension is set to end. Despite the notice, USPS still has been delivering packages in the neighborhood, but paper mail delivery has halted, and residents have been instructed to pick up their mail in person at their post office on 7th Street.

  1. So what’s the big deal here? This is happening in California what else can you expect, look who’s running the government. This is the modus operandi of the Democratic Party. I think the only saving grace for California will be when voters realize that people like the Democrat governor, Pelosi, Harris, and their ilk are out of power they may have a chance to get back to the real American endemic ethos.

  2. OK. it is a serious matter to attack or physically threaten anyone performing “vital services.” The USPS should impose this action more frequently when their carriers are endangered (as well as other providers of delivery services, UPS, FedEx, etc.). The criminal element in that area appears to be “ruling the roost,” but that does not mean those providing vital services should be endangered by them. Kudos to USPS!

  3. Off topic but important. Pakistan condemns Israel for attacking a important mosque . Do I need to point out that Pakistan as Nukes . That Iran doesn’t have to make nukes if Pakistan quietly gifts a nuke or two to Iran under the table. Someone better get on this one or we may not need to wait for Russia to fire a tactical nuke at Ukraine . Because the tails could wag the dogs into a nuclear war.
