Marxist Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon defended his handling of cop-killer Justin Flores’ felon with gun case Tuesday evening.
Gascon was blamed for the shooting deaths of two police officers by a gang member last Tuesday, a direct result of his soft-on-crime policies enacted shortly after taking office.
Corporal Paredes and Officer Santana of the El Monte PD were killed in the line of duty by Justin Flores, a criminal on probation in an ambush at a motel last Tuesday night.

Justin Flores is a felon with a history of arrests but Gascon allowed him to avoid jail time for being in possession of a firearm.
Flores went on to kill two cops because of Gascon’s policies.
Gascon defended his handling of the Flores case and refused to say anything to the parents of murdered El Monte PD officer Joseph Santana Tuesday night.
Gascon walked away from the lectern and ignored reporters like a coward.
After doubling down on his handling of cop-killer Justin Flores’ felon w/ gun case, LA DA @GeorgeGascon walks out and ignores colleague @MattFinnFNC, who asks if he has anything to say to the parents of murdered El Monte PD officer Joseph Santana, who blame Gascon for his death. pic.twitter.com/5l3my2k3rP
