Governor of California Gavin Newsom is paying the price for some of his state’s progressive policies like zero-cash bail for lower-level offenses; they’ve only added fuel to the crime surge. The Union Pacific Railroad train robberies are a prime example of the lawlessness in L.A..
According to Fox News, “Reacting to recent media images of trash-strewn railroad tracks in Los Angeles – the result in part of thieves stealing from passing rail cars and discarding packaging – California Gov. Gavin Newsom showed up Thursday with a clean-up crew and vowed action.”
“And the Democrat, dressed in a T-shirt, baseball cap and coronavirus mask, pitched in himself, joining crew members from the state Department of Transportation in grabbing handfuls of debris and placing the trash in bags or in a dumpster.”
“What has happened on this stretch of the Union Pacific Railroad is unacceptable,” Newsom told reporters. He said the area looked like a scene from “a Third World country,” according to FOX 11 of Los Angeles.
