LAPD Detective Compares Los Angeles to ‘The Purge’ Due To Rise in Crime

LAPD Detective Compares Los Angeles to 'The Purge' Due To Rise in Crime

A Los Angeles Police Department detective warns people not to come to the city. Recently, there have been more incidents of smash-and-grab and follow-home robberies in this area.

Jamie McBride is the director of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, and he appears on a show called CSU News. He told them that he was telling people not to visit L.A. because it is not safe. He compares Los Angeles to The Purge, but instead of 24 hours, we have 365 days.

McBride thinks that things like Proposition 47 and the state’s zero-bail policy are causing crime to increase. He says that these policies let criminals out of jail faster than officers can finish their reports.

Last week, the LAPD Chief and L.A. Mayor announced 14 arrests in connection with a series of smash-and-grab robberies. The 14 people were later released because there was no bail in California.

McBride said that we should start at the top and work down. Governor Newsom said last week that people who steal things from stores should be punished, and the governor will make sure to increase punishments for these crimes in his new budget.

A lot of changes were made to the police force after the COVID-19 pandemic. One of these changes is the zero-bail policy and eliminating bail for low-level, non-violent felonies and misdemeanors. A councilman in Los Angeles introduced a resolution on Wednesday that would support reinstituting cash bail in L.A. County.
