Los Angeles DA Shares Memorial Day Message But Makes A Big Mistake

On Friday, heading into Memorial Day weekend controversial California District Attorney George Gascon shared a message that did not get the response he was hoping for.

Fox News reports:

“When I was 18 years old, I joined the United States Army,” Gascon tweeted. “I’d like to wish everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend as we reflect on and remember those who have served our country.”

Garcia, who represents California’s 25th congressional district, took issue with the tweet while also criticizing Gascon’s handling of crimes committed in Los Angeles.

“Are you a ghost?” Garcia, a former United States Navy pilot, responded. “If not, you have the wrong holiday @GeorgeGascon.  Veterans Day is in November.   This weekend we honor those who didn’t make it home.  It’s not hard.  Neither is recognizing the difference between felonies and misdemeanors.”

Gascon has faced heavy criticism for his decision to bar deputy district attorneys from seeking cash bail despite a major spike in violent crime across the state.

“After listening to the community, victims and members of this Office, I have decided to allow limited exceptions to the pre-trial release policy while such a program is finalized,” a memo circulated through his office states.

The growing dissatisfaction has prompted California residents to begin a recall effort. The petition has garnered over 400,000 signatures.

This IDIOT Gascon is a Soros funded prosecutor and a Liberal fool who wants corruption and chaos to rain down on our cities. Cities who have the most crime (the top 16 cities) are all DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED. These IGNORANT fools are killing our country americans!!!! Do you duty and get them out!!! Arrest them andProsecute them if they have committed crimes but most of all vote conservative in the Primaries and in November. Lets take AMERICA back again!!!

Let me tell you something. Being in the CIA before 1980 was a different animal than post cold war. The top leadership was and is currently terrible.
