Recall Campaign Calls on Gascon to Charge Suspects in CHP Ambush with Gun Enhancements

(LOS ANGELES, CA) – This week, a CHP officer was ambushed in East Los Angeles by two suspects when they opened fire on his patrol vehicle as he was driving down the street.   The suspects also fired at Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputies during the ensuing shootout.

As horrific acts of gun violence and crime are taking place throughout America, the Recall DA George Gascon campaign calls on Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon to charge all appropriate sentence enhancements in this case and others, including enhancements for using a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

One of the main focal points of Gascon’s pro-criminal agenda has been the refusal to charge gun, gang, or other sentence enhancements against violent criminals, even as he calls for more to be done to stop gun violence.

“George Gascon is talking out of both sides of his mouth when he calls for stricter gun control laws but refuses to charge gun enhancements.  It is a total cognitive disconnect. Gascon’s failure to prosecute criminals who are committing acts of gun violence to full the extent of the law is in and of itself enough reason for his immediate removal from office.”  – The Recall DA George Gascon campaign.

The recall campaign has collected more than 450,000 signatures as of May 13. To get the recall on the ballot, the campaign must collect 566,857 signatures from registered Los Angeles County voters (10% of the total current registered voters). The deadline for submission to the Registrar is July 6, 2022.

The recall effort continues to build bi-partisan support throughout Los Angeles communities.  Supporters include victims’ rights advocates, current and former law enforcement officials, and Los Angeles County residents.  34 cities (and counting) in Los Angeles County have issued votes of no confidence in Gascon.  98% of Gascon’s own line prosecutors support the recall, along with Los Angeles police and sheriffs.
