LA County sheriff fires back at anti-police activists who said they hoped injured deputies died

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has a stern message for the anti-police activists who wished for the deaths of two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies who were ambushed while sitting in their patrol vehicle over the weekend.

What’s the background?

As TheBlaze reported, shortly after the deputies were ambushed Saturday night, alleged Black Lives Matter activists stormed the hospital where the deputies were taken for emergency surgery.

Witnesses said they saw the protesters attempt to block hospital entrances and exists. Meanwhile, numerous social media videos showed the anti-police activists telling law enforcement officers outside the hospital that they hoped the injured officers would die; others even threatened that they would kill every police officer “one by one.”

What did Villanueva say?

During an interview Tuesday on Fox News, Villanueva said those activists who shouted “we hope they die,” referring to the injured officers, are “almost worthy of ISIS.”

“It’s just a new low for hatred that I don’t think anyone in this nation has ever seen before, and it’s something almost worthy of ISIS,” Villanueva said.

“We just don’t expect it on our own shores,” he continued. “We have been here fighting to save people’s lives across the county — it doesn’t matter who you are. It is not something we are going to expect or tolerate.”

Later in the interview, Villanueva also challenged Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, whom Villanueva has called on to match the reward money for Saturday’s crime.

On Monday, Villanueva said publicly:

This challenge is to LeBron James. I want you to match that and double that reward. I know you care about law enforcement. You expressed a very interesting statement about your perspective on race relations and on officer-involved shootings and the impact that it has on the African American community. And I appreciated that. But likewise, we need to appreciate that respect for life goes across professions, across races, creeds, and I’d like to see LeBron James step up to the plate and double that.

During his interview on Fox News, Villanueva said James has not yet responded to him — but said the NBA superstar needs “to take some ownership of exactly what he said in terms of propagating the idea that people are being hunted everywhere because of the color of their skin.”

James said in May, in response to uproar over the death of Ahmaud Arbery, that black people “literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!”

Villanueva said, “I think that is just flat out not the case.”

“I think we need to hold those accountable for breaking the law, be it law enforcement when we are crossing the line,” Villanueva added. “But then we have to acknowledge the bigger problem of violence overall and this ambush, cowardly ambush, of the two deputies just doing their own job, doing their business there in Compton, really illustrates that. That is the problem we need to address.”

Ambush Compton Deputies Intelwars LeBron James Los Angeles Sheriff

LA sheriff calls out LeBron James, asks him to match reward for finding gunman who ambushed deputies

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva called out NBA superstar and Black Lives Matter supporter LeBron James on Monday, challenging the Los Angles Lakers star to match and double the reward for bringing to justice the suspect who ambushed two deputies in Compton over the weekend.

What are the details?

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person seen on surveillance video shooting two deputies sitting in their patrol car on Saturday night. Another $75,000 has been added to the reward from private donors.

During an interview with KABC-AM, Villanueva declared, “This challenge is to LeBron James: I want you to match that and double that reward,” according to Fox News.

“I know you care about law enforcement,” the sheriff continued. “You expressed a very interesting statement about your perspective on race relations and on officer-involved shootings and the impact that it has on the African American community, and I appreciate that. But likewise, we need to appreciate that respect for life goes across all professions.”

Villanueva added, “Let’s see what he does. I’ll be very curious to see what his response is, if any.”

What did LeBron James say?

James has been an outspoken critic of law enforcement in the wake of the death of George Floyd, who died while in police custody in Minneapolis in late May after an officer was seen on camera kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.

Following the shooting of Jacob Blake — who became engaged in a scuffle with officers after they sought to apprehend him over allegations of sexual assault in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last month — James tweeted, “And y’all wonder why we say what we say about the Police!! Someone please tell me WTF is this???!!! Exactly another black man being targeted. This s**t is so wrong and so sad!! Feel so sorry for him, his family and OUR PEOPLE!! We want JUSTICE.”

Later that day, James told reporters, “We are scared as black people in America. Black men, black women, black kids. We are, we are terrified.”

James has thus far been silent over the shooting of the two deputies in Compton, who remain hospitalized because of their injuries.

According to an earlier report from TheBlaze, the sheriff’s department said:

The suspect is described as a black male whose age is estimated to be between 28 and 30. He was wearing dark clothes in the now widely circulated surveillance video. Unfortunately, the low quality of that video makes further description of the suspect virtually impossible at this time.

Black Lives Matter Intelwars Los Angeles Police ambush Protests

‘Y’all gonna die one by one’: BLM activists storm hospital where ambushed officers taken, block exits

After two Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputies sustained multiple gunshot wounds upon being ambushed while sitting in their patrol vehicle on Saturday, alleged Black Lives Matters protesters stormed the hospital where the officers were transported to for emergency surgery.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, protesters attempted to block the entrance and exit of the hospital. Protesters also shouted that they hoped the injured officers died.

“To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling ‘We hope they die’ referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through,” the agency said.

Video taken from outside the hospital showed one protester tell law enforcement officers standing guard outside the hospital, “I hope they f***ing die,” referring to the injured officers.

(Content Warning: The following videos contains strong language):

Other video taken from outside the hospital showed the alleged BLM activists berate the officers who guarded the hospital’s perimeter.

The activists told the officers, “you’re next” and “y’all gonna die one by one.”

“Y’all ain’t s***. F*** that b***h,” one activist is heard saying.

(Content Warning: The following video contains strong language):

One witness told KABC-TV that he heard the protesters say “death to the police” and “kill the police.”

That same witness also told the news outlet that he saw the protesters attempt to breach the hospital.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said police arrested two individuals, including one member of the press.

After deputies issued a dispersal order for the unlawful assembly of a group of protesters blocking the hospital emergency entrance & exits, a male adult protester refused to comply & cooperate. During his arrest, a struggle ensued at which time a female adult ran towards the deputies, ignored repeated commands to stay back as they struggled with the male and interfered with the arrest. The female adult, who was later identified as a member of the press, did not identify herself as press and later admitted she did not have proper press credentials on her person. Both individuals have been arrested for 148 P.C.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat, responded by condemning the protesters.

“There’s no place in civilized society for anybody to draw an arm and to shoot our law enforcement officers that put their lives on the line. And I won’t ever let a couple voices that not only are uncalled for, but it’s abhorrent to say something like that when we have two deputies in grave condition,” Garcetti said Sunday on CNN.

Ambush Intelwars Los Angeles police officers

Shocking video shows gunman ambush two LA police officers sitting in car: ‘Without warning or provocation’

Two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies are fighting for their lives after they were ambushed “without warning or provocation” while sitting in their patrol vehicle on Saturday.

According to the LA County Sheriff’s Office, the highly disturbing incident happened in Compton Saturday evening.

“Moments ago, 2 of our Sheriff Deputies were shot in Compton and were transported to a local hospital. They are both still fighting for their lives, so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. We will update this thread with information as it becomes available,” the agency announced.

“One male deputy and one female deputy were ambushed as they sat in their patrol vehicle. Both sustained multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition. They are both currently undergoing surgery. The suspect is still at large,” the agency added.

Surveillance footage of the brutal attack shows a lone gunman walk up to the passenger side window of the patrol vehicle and begin firing “with warning or provocation,” according to the LA County Sheriff’s Office.

The gunman then runs away after firing multiple shots into the stationary vehicle.

(Content Warning: The following video contains graphic material):

More from Fox News:

Both deputies were sworn in just over a year ago and the female deputy is the mother of a 6-year-old boy, officials said in a 10 p.m. news conference. Both of their families were rallying around them at the hospital.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva said while authorities don’t have a detailed suspect description, one of the deputies described the shooter as a “dark-skinned male.” Villanueva said the shooting shows the dangers officers face in the streets and how situations can change in “the blink of an eye.”

“That was a cowardly act,” Villanueva said, KABC-TV reported. “The two deputies were doing their job, minding their own business, watching out for the safety of the people on the train.”

He added, “To see somebody just walk up and start shooting on them. It pisses me off. It dismays me at the same time. There’s no pretty way to say it.”

Fortunately, the officers were out of surgery just hours after the attack, Fox News reported.

President Donald Trump also responded to the brazen act of violence.

“Animals that must be hit hard!” the president said.

covid Covid lockdowns Eric Garcetti Halloween Intelwars Los Angeles

Los Angeles cancels Halloween: After the mayor marched with thousands of protesters in the streets, county health officials declare trick-or-treating unsafe

After Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was seen marching maskless with thousands of protesters in the streets of Los Angeles just a few short weeks ago, the Los Angeles County Health Department has decreed that trick-or-treating is unsafe and will be illegal this Halloween, along with all carnivals, festivals, and parties with “non-household members.”

In a guidance document published by KABC-TV, the health department declared, “Door to door trick or treating is not allowed because it can be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors especially in neighborhoods that are popular with trick or treaters.” The health department also went one step further and stated, “Gatherings or Parties with non-household members are not permitted even if they are conducted outdoors.”

The county has also ordered that “Carnivals, festivals, live entertainment, and haunted house attractions are not allowed.”

Los Angeles County has continued to experience repeated protest events since the May 25 death of George Floyd. Protesters have not been cited for failing to abide by social distancing guidelines, and prominent city officials have even joined in many of the protests, while shutting off electricity and water to homes and businesses that violate those same rules.

Not to worry, though! If you live in Los Angeles County and have small children, they can still participate in many fun activities, including “Online parties/contests (e.g. costume or pumpkin carving)” and “Halloween themed art installations at an outdoor museum,” both of which will surely be acceptable substitutes for small children.

Additionally, the county has graciously agreed to allow homeowners to “Dress up homes and yards with Halloween themed decorations.”

Despite instituting some of the harshest coronavirus lockdown measures in the country (apart from intentionally failing to enforce them against social justice protesters), Los Angeles County has been one of the worst COVID-19 hot spots in the country. The county has seen almost 250,000 confirmed cases of the virus and more than 6,000 deaths at the time of this article’s publication.

Electricity Eric Garcetti Intelwars liberalism Los Angeles Rolling blackout Socialism

Hilarity ensues when LA’s Democratic mayor tells residents to hike thermostat amid record heat: ‘Warning to all America’

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was raked over the coals after instructing Los Angeles residents on Sunday to reduce their use of electricity.

What did Garcetti say?

On Sunday, the mayor tweeted, “It’s almost 3 p.m. Time to turn off major appliances, set the thermostat to 78 degrees (or use a fan instead), turn off excess lights and unplug any appliances you’re not using. We need every Californian to help conserve energy. Please do your part.”

Garcetti’s directive came as Californians battle record heat and face ravaging wildfires.

With record-setting heat, residents use more electricity to cool their homes, increasing stress on the power grid and resulting in rolling blackouts.

What was the response?

Tens of thousands of people responded to Garcetti’s tweet, stunned that such a message could come from the leader of one of the wealthiest cities in the world, in the wealthiest country ever to exist.

Many attributed the shocking directive to liberalism, progressivism, and socialism. Garcetti is a Democrat.

  • “Socialism sucks. With Biden-Harris, this train wreck of an energy policy is coming to your state too.
    Their new slogan: if you want to live without air conditioning—vote Democrat,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)
    said.
  • “This is a daily ritual in Somalia, Venezuela, Cuba, every socialist s***hole in the world. Thank you, @TheDemocrats,” actor James Woods responded.
  • “We pay some of the highest taxes in the nation, and what we receive for those tax dollars are riots condoned by the city, and an insufficient energy grid to deal with the super-unpredictable fact that it gets f***ing hot in summer in CA,” Ben Shapiro fired back.
  • “Nothing says ‘I’m a failed Mayor’ quite like this tweet,” comedian Tim Young replied.
  • “Just showed this warning to my wife. She’s a recent immigrant from a third world country. The look on her face was priceless when she realized that California, a major first world economic powerhouse, couldn’t keep the power on any better than the country she just left,” another person said.
  • “Warning to all America. This is what decades of Democrat leadership brings. By the way, right now California politicians like Kamala Harris aren’t working on a fix. They are just trying to figure out how to blame Trump,” another person said.
  • “Here’s what a highly regulated, government dictated energy system gets you… weakness, failure and danger,” acting Deputy Director of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli said.
  • “D**n. I thought this was a parody tweet at first. No wonder ppl are leaving CA in droves. Yikes,” another person responded.

Fortunately, another blackout was narrowly averted over the weekend.

Caravan Donald Trump Intelwars Los Angeles Pro-trump demonstration Rally Shots fired at trump supporters watch

Gunshots reportedly fired at pro-Trump caravan in LA; car tire blown out; another car’s window smashed

Hundreds of supporters of President Donald Trump staged a car rally along Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles on Sunday morning when a motorist heard what sounded like gunshots as she drove past the caravan and soon noticed her flat tire,
KNBC-TV reported, citing police.

Image source: KNBC-TV video screenshot

Police told the station the tire was damaged by a projectile, possibly a bullet or bullet fragment, and a witness pointed police to a possible shooter in a nearby apartment building.

Image source: KNBC-TV video screenshot

What happened next?

With that, SWAT was called to the apartment complex in the 20600 block of Ventura Boulevard in the Woodland Hills neighborhood, and the building was locked down with three suspected shooters barricaded inside, KNBC said.

Image source: KNBC-TV video screenshot

But after a standoff of several hours with Ventura Boulevard shut down and nearby buildings evacuated, SWAT entered the apartment and found no one home, the station said. Police continued to investigate the incident, KNBC noted.

What’s the background?

“We assembled peacefully,” rally participant Linda Zukovski told the station.

But Zukovski added to KNBC that she recorded video prior to the rally start of men on an apartment balcony arguing with rally participants — and that bottles and even a firework were thrown at Trump supporters.

“Nobody was throwing stuff back at them, nobody was screaming obscenities at them.” she told the station. “It was all like kind of mellow until it became violent.”

Zukovski also told KNBC the rear window of a car right in front of her in the caravan was smashed by a rock or frozen water bottle.

Image source: KNBC-TV video screenshot

She added to the station that “as we were driving by we heard the gunshot.”

An unidentified woman told KNBC that “the people that were in the caravan and all the Trump supporters were pretty taunting.”

Image source: KNBC-TV video screenshot

The station said there were no reports of any injuries.

Anything else?

The incident occurred just hours after a vehicle caravan of Trump supporters clashed with Antifa rioters in Portland, after which a man associated with Patriot Prayer was fatally shot. Video from the shooting suggests the victim was targeted.

After the deadly shooting, a crowd of leftists gathered on a Portland street and cheered as a woman hollered through a megaphone that “the person who died was a Patriot Prayer person. He was a f***ing Nazi. Our community held its own and took out the trash. I’m not going to shed any tears over a Nazi.”

Church Grace community church Intelwars John macarthur Los Angeles

Judge hands California church major legal victory after pastor defiantly restarts indoor gatherings

Los Angeles County-based Grace Community Church ignited controversy last month for announcing they would begin holding indoor gatherings in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s coronavirus-related restrictions.

On Friday, a judge handed the prominent church a major legal victory.

What happened?

Superior Court Judge Gregory Alarcon ruled that Grace Community Church can continue to hold indoor services as long as worshippers wear face coverings and practice social distancing.

According to the Associated Press, Los Angeles County had sought a court order to bar the church community from continuing to meet indoors. County officials claimed the gatherings posed an immediate public health threat.

What was the reaction?

Pastor John MacArthur expressed gratitude over the ruling.

“I am very grateful the court has allowed us to meet inside and we are happy for a few weeks to comply and respect what the judge has asked of us because he is allowing is to meet,” MacArthur said in a statement, Fox News reported.

He continued, “This vindicates our desire to stay open and serve our people. This also gives us an opportunity to show that we are not trying to be rebellious or unreasonable, but that we will stand firm to protect our church against unreasonable, unconstitutional restrictions.”

Los Angeles County officials, however, were not happy. They said they would “continue to work through the legal system to ensure that the health officer orders are upheld.”

Anything else?

MacArthur, who has likened the gatherings to a “peaceful protest,” recently explained why he made the decision to re-open the doors to Grace Community Church.

The pastor told Billy Hallowell that the impact of COVID-19 has not been what advocates of restrictions claim, which meant the lockdown measures no longer made sense.

“Grace Church is going to meet … and we’re going to continue to meet and we’re going to always meet because Jesus Christ is the head of the church. Jesus is Lord,” MacArthur explained. “And government has a certain purview given by God, but it doesn’t cross over into the realm of the kingdom of God, so we’re going to meet.”

California closed bars control criminal violation Criminals cut off water and power defiance of the law Eric Garcetti Headline News illegal Intelwars large gatherings banned leave the matrix leave the system Los Angeles man made laws aren't laws Masters natural laws no fun order followers political parasites power hungry shut them down slaves

LA Mayor Threatens To Cut Power & Water To Homes That Host “Large Gatherings”

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti has warned that residents hosting large home gatherings can expect their water and power to be turned off. This thin-skinned mayor is losing his power grip on the people and will stop at nothing to show just how low he’ll go to get people to obey his every command.

If nothing else, this at the very least shows that the public is no longer willing to be controlled or dictated to. Garcetti’s temper tantrum is being thrown because he was able to shut down bars, but cannot get people to stop being social with each other. “You’re breaking the law. Just as we can shut down bars breaking alcohol laws, in places that are in criminal violation, we can shut them down,” said Garcetti, who is an actual criminal and political parasite.

According to a report by RT, starting on Friday, Garcetti said that the city’s Department of Water and Power (DWP) would shut off service to properties where there are “egregious” violations of local health orders, pointing to house parties in the Hollywood Hills and Calabasas in recent weeks, which he said were held in “flagrant” defiance of the law.

While we have already closed all bars and nightclubs, these large house parties have essentially become nightclubs, the mayor said on Wednesday, vowing to treat residential homes the same as businesses that skirt health guidelines. In other words, the mayor will dictate what people can and cannot do, meaning the slaves have an obligation to obey or be punished. In case anyone has failed to notice, that isn’t freedom.

Politicians have been getting made fun of for their power grab and inability to control people.  Most simply want to live their lives freely and without bein bothered so long as they afford others that same courtesy. Politicians, on the other hand, want only power and control.  Remember Bill de Blasio’s snitch line?

Commie De Blasio’s Snitch Hotline FLOODED With Obscenities

The bottom line is that people are finally awakening to what the government has become: puppets of the bankers. Once enough figure it out, the disobedience will spread like wildfire.

LA County could redistribute nearly $1B from law enforcement to ‘social programs’

Los Angeles County residents will vote this November on whether to redistribute nearly $1 billion in funding from county law enforcement to “social programs.”

According to KTTV-TV reporter Bill Melugin, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 on Tuesday to include the charter amendment on November’s ballot.

“It would strip $880 million away from Sheriff’s Department, court system, DA’s office, and redistribute it to low income areas/social programs,” Melugin reported. “Supervisor Kathryn Barger was the lone ‘no’ vote, saying this proposal was rushed, wasn’t transparent, had no feedback from stakeholders, and could result in job cuts to county employees as well as budget issues down the road. Other Supervisors say let the voters decide.”

The proposal, which has been dubbed “Reimagining L.A. County,” mandates that at least 10% of the county’s net cost be earmarked for “social programs,” according to Melugin.

Supervisor Sheila Kuehl said the program is not about defunding the police, but rather expanding the so-called social safety net, KTTV reported.

“It’s time to bring our budget into alignment with our actions, intentions and vision. The supervisors have said we want to move people from custody to care, and our constituents are pleading with us to expand housing and treatment options and stop relying on punitive, outdated law enforcement tactics,” she said.

If approved by voters, the program, whose goal is “to address the disproportionate impact of racial injustice,” would be fully implemented by June 2024.

More from KTTV:

If passed by voters, the charter amendment would allocate funds to be spent in a number of broad categories, including youth development programs, job training for low-income communities, access to capital for minority-owned businesses, rent assistance and affordable housing, community-based health services and jail diversion programs.

It would prohibit such funds being used for or redistributed through law enforcement or correctional agencies, including the District Attorney’s Office, but would not prohibit its use to cover costs related to trial courts. The ordinance cites only a percentage of “the county’s locally generated unrestricted revenues in the general fund,” not an absolute number.

Not surprisingly, the program would adversely impact public safety, L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva warned last week, explaining he would be forced to close several patrol stations in the county.

Black Lives Matter charges District attorney gun Intelwars Jackie lacey Los Angeles Protesters

Husband of LA district attorney facing charges for pulling gun on BLM protestors at his house

The husband of Los Angeles County’s first black district attorney has been hit with three charges of assault with a firearm stemming from him pulling a gun when an estimated 30 Black Lives Matter activists showed up at the couple’s home demanding to see his wife earlier this year.

What are the details?

The Los Angeles Times reported that David Lacey, husband of L.A. county chief prosecutor Jackie Lacey, was charged by the California attorney general’s office over an incident in early March where he was recorded on video brandishing a gun at protestors who showed up on his front porch calling for a meeting with his wife.

On March 2, a Black Lives Matter representative named Melina Abdullah rang the doorbell of the Lacey household, and Mr. Lacey came to the door. He is seen pointing a gun during the confrontation, telling the activists to get off his porch and warning them that he was prepared to shoot them.

Mrs. Lacey later said that her husband was “profoundly sorry” for the exchange, adding, “I do not believe it is fair or right for protestors to show up at the homes of people who dedicate their lives to public service. It was just him and I in that house and we really didn’t know what was about to happen.”

In an interview released by CNN last month, Mrs. Lacey condemned the radical views pushed by some Black Lives Matters activists, including the defunding of police.

The Hill reported that following the news of Mr. Lacey’s criminal charges, his attorney, Samuel Tyre said in a statement that he was “disappointed” that his client’s actions were considered “criminal behavior.”

“We disagree entirely with their assessment,” Tyre argued, adding, “but we have the utmost faith in the justice system, and we are confident that the correct result will be reached.”

Anything else?

Mr. Lacey’s case has similarities to another case happening in the middle of the country which also involves a couple defending their home against protesters.

The BLM movement gained an enormous boost following the death of George Floyd in late May — two months after the incident at the Lacey household. The movement has since been joined and allegedly hijacked by affiliated groups in protests across the country, with demonstrations descending into violence, looting, and even murders.

A St. Louis couple, the McCloskeys — both of whom are attorneys — were charged last month for bringing out firearms to confront protesters who had broken down the gate to their gated community and allegedly threatened their lives.

The McCloskeys’ attorney, Joel Schwartz, released a statement at the time, saying, “I, along with my clients, support the First Amendment right of every citizen to have their voice and opinion heard. This right, however, must be balanced with the Second Amendment and Missouri law, which entitle each of us to protect our home and family from potential threats.”

Black man Intelwars Los Angeles Maxine Waters Police Traffic stop watch

Maxine Waters spots black motorist being questioned by officers, stops her SUV, and reportedly begins ‘yelling at deputies’

Far-left U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) managed to generate more headlines after spotting Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies questioning a black motorist last week, the

“They stopped a brother, so I stopped to see what they were doing,” Waters was heard saying.

She added in reference to the deputies: “They say I’m in the wrong place. They say they’re going to give me a ticket. That’s OK, as long as I watch them.”

The individual behind the camera shouts out, “Gotta do what they gotta do! Make sure!”

“I will,” Waters replies as she walks toward the deputies.

“Bye, Maxine!” another person shouts out.

Anything else?

Days after George Floyd’s death that sparked nationwide protests and rioting, Waters said the Minneapolis police officer whose knee pressed into Floyd’s neck “enjoyed doing what he was doing” and was out to kill that day.

“I believe sometimes some of these officers leave home thinking, ‘I’m gonna get me one today.’ And I think this is his one,” the California congresswoman told TMZ.

Waters added that Floyd’s death reminded her of similar violent incidents involving police and “white supremacists” — and that “if in fact you have subdued a suspect … and you’re not in any danger at all because the handcuffs are on him, there’s no reason for the police to do what these police did.”

She also placed blame on President Donald Trump, saying that “in a way he’s dog whistling” and that his conduct emboldens some to believe “they can get away with this kind of treatment.”

Waters apparently needs no dog whistles, as she openly encouraged her supporters to harass and maybe even attack members of Trump’s administration during a June 2018 speech.

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said.

Indeed harassment followed, and attacks on conservatives got physical, too. Amid all that, prominent Democrats followed Waters’ playbook, with Hillary Clinton saying “you cannot be civil” with Republicans, former Attorney General Eric Holder saying “when they go low, we kick them!” and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker urging activists in Washington, D.C., to “go to the Hill” and “get up in the face of some congresspeople.”

California Coronavirus Eric Garcetti fireworks freedom Independence Day Intelwars Los Angeles

Incredible video shows how defiant Californians responded to ban on Fourth of July celebrations

Last week, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat, demanded that his city’s residents cancel their Fourth of July celebrations over fear of spreading coronavirus — and even outlawed firework shows in Los Angeles County, according to KABC-TV.

“We’re going to have to celebrate differently this year. Everyone should cancel plans with others for the 4th of July. You shouldn’t gather with anyone who doesn’t live in your household. Please stay home and save lives — it’s that simple,” Garcetti said.

But video taken from Los Angeles after the sun went down Saturday showed how defiant Californians responded — with a skyline full of beautiful fireworks.

Here’s a time-lapse of the Los Angeles skyline Saturday night:

Barbara ferrer California Coronavirus protests Dr. Drew Eric Garcetti Intelwars Los Angeles Protests

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti admits protests spreading COVID-19; gets ripped for double standard

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has ordered the county’s beaches, piers, and bike paths to be closed during the 4th of July weekend. Firework displays are also prohibited during the holiday weekend.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said gatherings with people other than those you live with are not permitted.

“I want to remind you, you still can’t gather in groups. Whether you think you can get together to celebrate something like a birthday with folks who are not in your household, even if you know them or are related to them; that is still prohibited,” the Democratic mayor said on Wednesday. “Gatherings and getting together with anyone, except those who you live with, will spread the virus.”

During Garcetti’s coronavirus press conference telling relatives that they can’t visit each other, there was a crowded protest going on outside the city hall.

Dr. Drew Pinsky called out Garcetti for his “hypocrisy.”

“I’ll tell you one thing people cannot tolerate is hypocrisy or inconsistency,” Pinsky said. “Then they will just not listen to you. And I think that’s why we’re getting some of the resistance to the thing we really need people to do: to distance and wear a mask and go about their life a little bit. But they have been so inconsistent and, frankly, let’s just call it what it is: they’ve been deceptive on this and unwilling to answer it.”

On Wednesday, Garcetti finally admitted that public protests are likely causing COVID-19 cases to spike, despite a day earlier saying the opposite. During Garcetti’s coronavirus press briefing, he was asked if the Black Lives Matter protests were causing an increase in COVID-19 cases.

Garcetti responded by saying that he had consulted with Dr. Barbara Ferrer, the Los Angeles County director of public health, and she stated that the large demonstrations were a factor in the spread of coronavirus.

“I talked again with Dr. Ferrer about that this morning. She does think some of the spread did come from our protests,” Garcetti replied. “It’s not the act of protesting – that’s a great and American thing to do no matter what your opinion is… but protesting without maintaining physical distancing, without wearing your mask, without having sanitizer – we just have to be smart. Whether you’re at a protest or at your home, whether in your workplace or whether you’re out shopping, these rules don’t change.”

“We do believe there is a connection, we don’t believe that everybody has been doing this safely and wherever you can, please stay at home,” he added.

Also on Wednesday, Dr. Ferrer acknowledged that the demonstrations are spreading the virus. “In situations where people are close together for longer periods of time and it’s very crowded, we are certain that there is going to be spread,” Ferrer said. “So, we’ve never said that there’s no spread from people who were protesting.”

“We’ve been really honest and said from the beginning that for any people that are in crowded situations for long periods of time — which long for us means more than 15 minutes — where you’re in close contact with people, less than six feet apart and people aren’t wearing a cloth face covering you have a heightened risk of either transmitting the virus if you are an asymptomatic spreader, or getting the virus from someone else who is spreading because they also are an asymptomatic spreader,” she said.

During Garcetti’s COVID-19 press conference on Tuesday, he said protests are not spreading the virus.

“We follow the data closely,” Garcetti said. “There’s no evidence yet that the protests led to much spread though it’s something that Doctor Ferrer has hypothesized, but we haven’t seen any conclusive evidence there.”

Garcetti has participated in protests, where he didn’t practice social distancing and even took his mask off.

California set a record for daily coronavirus cases on Thursday by adding 9,352 new cases.

Beaches closed County fourth of july Intelwars Los Angeles Sheriff

Los Angeles County orders beaches closed for 4th of July — but sheriff says he won’t enforce it

Los Angeles County in California has issued a decree ordering all beaches closed for the Fourth of July holiday weekend citing a spike in COVID-19 cases, but it is unclear who will be enforcing the dictate after the county’s sheriff declared it won’t be his department.

What are the details?

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced Monday in a news release that from Friday through July 6 at 5 a.m., all L.A. County beaches would be closed “to prevent dangerous crowding that results in the spread of deadly COVID-19” and “for that same reason, the department is prohibiting fireworks displays in the County” over the weekend.

The memo noted that the same day, the county had seen “more than 2,900 new cases of COVID-19, the largest one-day case count since the pandemic began.”

The order prohibits people from not only the beaches, but “piers, public beach parking lots, beach bike paths that traverse that sanded portion of the beach, and beach access points.”

According to Deadline, defying the order “is punishable by law to include, but not limited to, a $1,000 fine.”

But it is unclear who will be writing citations to any “trespassers.”

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told KTTV-TV reporter Bill Melugin that his department will not be enforcing the county’s order.

The sheriff said in a statement, “We were not consulted on the beach closure, and will only assist our beach cities in closing parking lots and traffic enforcement on PCH. In regards to enforcing the beach closure, we will not be enforcing it because we are ‘Care First, Jail Last.'”

Budget Intelwars LAPD Los Angeles Los Angeles Police Department Los angeles protests Overtime Police

The LAPD has run out of cash and can’t pay officers overtime; morale is at ‘rock bottom’

The Los Angeles Police Department’s budget has been so depleted by the COVID-19 outbreak, and officers have been working so much due to the recent protests, that the department has run out of cash and can no longer afford to pay officers overtime, KTTV-TV reported.

Going forward, officers will be paid for overtime they work with additional paid time off, and the normal limit on the number of hours they can accrue has been lifted. But during a difficult time for the department, and with more budget cuts being pushed in the city council, morale low at the LAPD.

“It’s very disheartening,” Sgt. Jerretta Sandoz, vice president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, said. “The officers have lost trust, they were told, cancel days off, cancel vacations, and we will pay you cash overtime, then a memo comes out that they have no more cash. The officers are not happy right now, aside from taking bottles, bricks, I don’t know what else they can handle and now to be told there’s no cash, they’re at their wit’s end.”

LAPD officers have worked about $40 million in overtime, during the recent protests and riots, that the city is unable to pay. Going forward, nonessential overtime has been canceled. Metropolitan Transit Authority overtime can potentially be cashed out when the budget is replenished.

The LAPD issued a statement on the matter:

The Los Angeles Police Department offers cash overtime to officers when it is available, and when those allotted amounts are depleted that compensation is offered in time.

The COVID-19 pandemic and full mobilization of the Department depleted that cash reserve before the end of the fiscal year and we transitioned to comp time last week.

Regarding MTA details, consistent with our notice officers will be compensated in time, and when the MTA reimburses the Department the officers’ time compensation will be converted to cash.

“It’s rock bottom, very, very low, they’re not robots, they’re human beings and to have city leaders turn their back on them in the midst of a pandemic as well as riots and protests, angry mobs that were attacking them on the front lines when they’re trying to protect life and property, it’s hard for them right now,” Sandoz said about officers’ morale.

The Los Angeles City Council budget committee moved forward with a proposal to cut up to $150 million from the LAPD budget for 2020-21, which will be considered by the full council.

city council president Defund police Intelwars LAPD Los Angeles Los Angeles police Nury martinez

Los Angeles Democrat wants to pull funding from LAPD — even though she’s had a private LAPD detail at her home

Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez filed a motion last week to cut $150 million from the Los Angeles Police Department budget, even though she’s taken advantage of a private LAPD detail at her home for the past few months, Spectrum News 1 reported.

Los Angeles is among the cities across the country considering reducing funding to police departments or disbanding them altogether. The LAPD budget is $3.1 billion, according to the report.

“We need a vision for our city that says ‘there is going to be justice,'” the motion stated. “American society is founded on a racial hierarchy, one that is born out of slavery, followed by Jim Crow segregation and corporate abuse of labor. As such, police departments are asked to enforce a system of laws that are designed to reinforce and maintain economic and racial inequality.”

Yet, due to reported death threats against Martinez and her daughter, a 24/7 LAPD protection unit has watched over Martinez’s home, sometimes with two officers at a time.

Detective Jamie McBride, the head of the LAPD’s union, was outraged by Martinez’s motion, considering how much taxpayer money has gone toward protecting her with LAPD officers.

“It’s kind of ironic. Here she is demanding $150 million be reallocated from the police budget, but yet she has security at her house by the Los Angeles Police Department. … It’s disgusting. For two officers in front of a residence since April, you’re probably over $100,000 of the people’s money,” McBride said, according to Spectrum News 1.

Rick Coca, a spokesperson for Martinez, said the detail has now been canceled because the security has been compromised. The cancellation has led to questions about whether there really was a credible threat to Martinez and her family.

“Obviously there wasn’t a threat there because the units from what I understand have disappeared,” McBride told Spectrum News 1.

The LAPD would not disclose to the outlet whether other city officials had LAPD security details.

Black Lives Matter City Council Defund police George floyd riots Intelwars LAPD Los Angeles watch Woman of color

Woman cop of color blasts Los Angeles councilwoman to her face — and Black Lives Matter, too

Amid a growing “defund the police” movement as protests continue nationwide in reaction to George Floyd’s death, there are also proposed budget cuts looming for Los Angeles police — but cops there aren’t having it.

‘You bowed down to Black Lives Matter’

Sgt. Jeretta Sanchez — vice president of the L.A. police union — stood in front of City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez and told her so, right to her face. And Sanchez didn’t hold back her disdain for Black Lives Matter, either — nor for the councilwoman and city officials she said “bowed down” to the organization.

“You bowed down to Black Lives Matter. These police officers that are out here protecting this city … protecting it from being on fire. If it wasn’t for them, this city would be burned down right now. I promise you this union will go to our grave fighting,” Sanchez told Rodriguez Friday,
KCBS-TV reported, as uniformed officers stood around their colleague and applauded. “We’re not letting this happen to these officers. It’s not right.”

She wasn’t done.

Sanchez also blasted Rodriguez over the idea of giving “$250 million to Black Lives Matter” after officials had placed civilian employees “on furlough because you didn’t have money” and “now you’re finding the money to give?”

She also pointed out that Black Lives Matter and the group’s followers threw rocks and bottles at LAPD officers amid rioting, “cracking their skulls,” yet city officials are still listening to BLM members — “a hundred of them” — instead of the far greater number of “law-abiding citizens” who only want “these officers to protect them.”

“And this is what they do every day,” Sanchez concluded, referring to her fellow officers. “And now you’re cutting from their families, when they put everything on the line? We’re gonna fight.”

As Sanchez walked away, another officer was heard saying, “We’ll take care of it at the ballot box.”

What’s the background?

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced last week the city would make $250 million in cuts, spread across all departments, and give that money to black communities and other communities of color, KCBS reported, adding that $150 million would come out of the police department’s budget.

The police union held a Zoom news conference over Garcetti’s proposed cuts from the department’s $1.8 billion budget, and Jamie McBride — director of the Los Angeles Police Protective League — said the mayor “panicked and blamed the men and women of the LAPD for his failed leadership,” the station reported.

The union also wasn’t happy with Garcetti’s “killers” comment Thursday to a group of black community leaders at the First African Methodist Episcopal Church, KCBS said.

‘The killers that we are’

“We must lead,” the mayor said at the meeting, according to the station. “I got calls from mayors around the country, some of them saying, ‘I’m so excited,’ the other ones saying, ‘What the hell did you do? Now I [have to] shift money.’ That’s exactly the point. It starts someplace, and we say we are going to be who we want to be, or we’re going to continue being the killers that we are.”

McBride, a 30-year veteran of the department, said Garcetti “smeared every single police officer in Los Angeles and across the nation by calling us killers” and that union members have lost “all confidence” in him, KCBS reported.

And while the union has not undertaken a formal no-confidence vote, the station said the Police Protective League added Friday that Garcetti “has apparently lost his damn mind” and said that if L.A. could remove its mayor for illness or incapacity, “we’d plead for it to be invoked.”

What did Garcetti have to say in response?

Garcetti told MSNBC Friday that the union took his remark out of context, KCBS said.

“I said all of us, meaning 100% of us as Americans, we make a choice to allow death to happen in this country, to allow, if you grew up in Watts, to have 12 years less of life than if you grew up in Bel Air,” he told the cable network, according to KCBS. “Do we want to say you should have a four-to-six-times higher chance of dying in childbirth if you’re a black woman [than] a white woman, have 10 times more household wealth depending on the color of your skin or not? These things kill people every single day.”

The city council must approve Garcetti’s proposed budget, including proposed cuts, the station said, adding that the budget must be adopted and signed by June 30.

George floyd death George floyd protests George floyd riots Intelwars Los Angeles Los angeles protests National Guard National guard impersonator

LAPD arrests man posing as a National Guardsman at George Floyd protests — and he was ‘armed to the teeth’

An alarming arrest was made in Los Angeles, California, when a man apparently posing as a National Guardsman was apprehended by LAPD at a protest against the death of George Floyd.

The man was caught when a real member of the National Guard spotted him at about 1:30 a.m. and noted that his uniform was not right, and that he was armed with an AR-15 instead of an M16.

The guardsman notified the LAPD and they made the arrest of 31-year-old Gregory Wong.

Bill Melugin of FOX 11 Los Angeles reported that police sources indicated that he was carrying numerous weapons, and he posted a photo of that gear.

“He was armed to the teeth and was booked on assault weapons charges. LAPD says federal charges may come next.” said Melugin.

Wong is reportedly from Northern California but lives in the Los Angeles area.

Melugin added that sources reported that Wong tried to get into formation with the rest of the National Guard when he was discovered.

He also posted a photograph of Wong being arrested by the LAPD.

Wong was charged with manufacturing and distribution of assault weapons and held on a $50,000 bond.

Here’s a local news report about the arrest:

NBA star beats up ‘motherf***ing white’ rioter he says broke window of his truck

NBA star J.R. Smith said he beat up a white rioter who broke a window of his truck.

What are the details?

In a TMZ Sports video posted Sunday to YouTube, Smith — all 6 feet, 6 inches and 225 pounds of him — is seen pummeling a white protester on a residential street in the Los Angeles area.

In the clip, Smith lands three kicks to the rioter’s head and one punch to his noggin before the hapless revolutionary scampers off to safety.

Smith later took to video to explain what happened.

“One of these little motherf***ing white boys didn’t know where he was going and broke my f***ing window in my truck,” he said. “Broke my s**t … This is a residential area. There wasn’t no stores over here. None of that s**t. Broke my window. I chased him down and whooped his ass … This ain’t no hate crime. I ain’t got no problem with nobody who ain’t got no problem with me.”

Content warning: Language:

TMZ said the beatdown reportedly took place around the Fairfax area “near the famous Flight Club sneaker shop, which had just been looted.”

Smith, 34, played 15 seasons in the NBA — but not this season after going unsigned, the Los Angeles Times reported. He last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

actor Denzel washington Good News Hollywood Intelwars Los Angeles Police viral videos

Actor Denzel Washington plays hero in real life. Check out what he does for man apparently in distress on LA street.

A viral video of Denzel Washington shows the actor helping a man apparently in distress on a Los Angeles street — and police later said Washington “saved the day” and called him a “very good Samaritan.”

What are the details?

A Los Angeles police officer explained in a video posted by Twitter user
@MoPhoPix that Washington was driving when he spotted a man in the road, became concerned for the man’s safety, pulled over, and helped him to the sidewalk.

Another person recognized Washington — an iconic actor and two-time Academy Award winner — while driving by and called police, according to the officer in the video,
USA Today reported.

A separate video showed some of the May 21 encounter that included Washington — who’s wearing a face mask — speaking to the man, putting his hand on his shoulder, sitting down while talking with police officers, and standing with the man as officers handle the situation.

At one point, officers appear to handcuff the man as Washington stands with him — and afterward the actor even tries to put what looks like a bottle of orange juice in his pocket.

“We intervened, spoke with the individual, and determined that he did not want to harm himself or others, and he was on his way, and Denzel left,” the officer continues in the explanatory video. “Denzel provided him a mask to protect himself from the environment, and that was good. So Denzel helped us today. Saved the day.”

Check it out:

What was the reaction?

A number of Twitter observers couldn’t help seeing Washington’s act of kindness through the lens of this week’s rioting in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd at the hands of police, USA Today said:

  • “DenzelWashington did what anybody should do in that kind of situation[.] I would’ve like to know that the people recording #GeorgeFloyd or Those surrounding him could’ve felt safe enough to do the same.”
  • “Can Denzel Washington go to Minnesota and teach a class?”
  • “After what happened to George Floyd, this helped take the edge off. Thank you Denzel Washington.”

Anything else?

As you may have noticed, Washington has gone on record over the last few years with a number of very powerful statements about the importance of faith in God, prayer, family, hard work, and even discerning truth from lies when it comes to the mainstream media.

Remember the inspiring college graduation speech he gave in 2015, featuring his charge that graduates “put God first”? Well, here you go:

Americans Coronavirus COVID-19 cure Department of Defense Dr. anthony fauci effective Fear Headline News injection devices Intelwars Jake Tapper LIES Los Angeles New York City pandemic Researchers United States vaccinate everyone vaccines

$138 Million Government Contract Will Fund Production Of 500 Million Pre-Filled COVID-19 Vaccine “Injection Devices”

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

Just when you thought that things couldn’t get any stranger, two U.S. government agencies have taken things to an entirely new level.  The U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have just put out a press release that is absolutely jaw-dropping, but so far hardly anyone is talking about it.

According to the press release, a 138 million dollar contract has been awarded to ApiJect Systems America for two projects known as “Project Jumpstart” and “RAPID USA”.  Apparently the goal of these projects is to have vast numbers of “injection devices” ready to go once a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available.  The following comes directly from the official website of the Department of Defense

“Today the Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, announce a $138 million contract with ApiJect Systems America for “Project Jumpstart” and “RAPID USA,” which together will dramatically expand U.S. production capability for domestically manufactured, medical-grade injection devices starting by October 2020.

Spearheaded by the DOD’s Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF), in coordination with the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, the contract will support “Jumpstart” to create a U.S.-based, high-speed supply chain for prefilled syringes beginning later this year by using well-established Blow-Fill-Seal (BFS) aseptic plastics manufacturing technology, suitable for combatting COVID-19 when a safe and proven vaccine becomes available.

Today, there are about 328 million people living in the United States.  But the press release states that the plan is to produce “over 500 million prefilled syringes” in 2021

The contract also enables ApiJect Systems America to accelerate the launch of RAPID USA manufactured in new and permanent U.S.-based BFS facilities with the ultimate production goal of over 500 million prefilled syringes (doses) in 2021. This effort will be executed initially in Connecticut, South Carolina and Illinois, with potential expansion to other U.S.-based locations. RAPID will provide increased lifesaving capability against future national health emergencies that require population-scale vaccine administration on an urgent basis.

So that would be enough “injection devices” to vaccinate every man, woman, and child in the entire country one and a half times.

Wow.

Right now, researchers all over the globe are racing toward the development of a vaccine, but as I have discussed previously, that is not going to be an easy task.

And on Tuesday Dr. Anthony Fauci openly admitted to a U.S. Senate committee that there is no guarantee that a vaccine “is actually going to be effective”

As drugmakers across the world race to develop a coronavirus vaccine, White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “There’s no guarantee that the vaccine is actually going to be effective.”

Fauci delivered the somber warning Tuesday to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions during a hearing about the road to reopening businesses across the nation.

In addition, because there are multiple strains of COVID-19 already running around out there, one vaccine may not be able to cover them all.  So this could create a need for “multiple vaccines”, and this is something that NIH Director Francis Collins has openly acknowledged

Several vaccines will likely be needed to combat the coronavirus and immunize groups of people in America and abroad, U.S. National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said in an interview.

So when the time finally comes, there may be more than one vaccine that authorities are pushing everyone to take.

But for now, there is no vaccine, and some health officials are pushing for social distancing restrictions to remain in place for months to come.

For example, Fox News is reporting that the top health official of Los Angeles County is warning that the local “stay-at-home order” may have to be extended until August…

Los Angeles County will likely continue its stay-at-home order through the summer, officials said Tuesday, as the coronavirus wreaks havoc on the economy and patience continues to wear thin for some calling for the state to reopen and for normal life to resume.

County Public Health Director Barabara Ferrer said the order will be extended “with all certainty” at the Board of Supervisors meeting, possibly until July or August, the Los Angeles Times reported.

And apparently L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti is on the same page.  In fact, he has once again stated that there will be no return to normal until a cure or a vaccine comes along

“I think quite simply she’s saying we’re not going to fully reopen Los Angeles — or anywhere in America — without any protections or health orders in the next three months,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

“I think we know it’s going to be even longer than three months. … We’re not moving past Covid-19, we’re learning to live with it. We’re not going to go back to pre-Covid life any time soon” or move forward without a medicine or vaccine.

I feel so badly for those living in the Los Angeles area because it certainly looks like the next three months are going to be really rough.

Of course, there are other large cities that are facing similar timelines.  Just check out what is being reported regarding the outlook for New York City…

New York City may not fully reopen until August after Gov. Cuomo advised that each phase of the four phase restart plan could take up to two weeks to implement.

Parts of the state of New York will be ready to reopen on May 15, this Friday, after meeting Governor Cuomo’s strict set of seven requirements.

We are only in mid-May right now.

Could you imagine being forced to stay home for the next three months?

Sadly, that is what millions of Americans will be facing.

And on Tuesday Dr. Fauci actually suggested that many schools will need to remain closed as the next school year begins

Anthony Fauci, MD, revealed Tuesday morning that a return to school in the fall “would be a bit of a bridge too far,” during a Senate Committee hearing. News of likely continued homeschooling for the next school year will probably be met with groans and frustration by harried parents struggling to balance working from home and also managing remote learning and having their children home 100 percent of the time.

Our entire society is melting down because of this virus, and if we can’t handle this crisis, what are we going to do when much worse things start happening to us?

Sometimes I wish that we could roll back the clock and go back to 2019.

Life seemed so much simpler back then, and things are only going to get crazier in the weeks and months to come…

Coronavirus inmates Coronavirus outbreak Inmate release Intelwars Los Angeles Los angeles county sheriff villanueva

Inmates intentionally catch coronavirus to force their release — Sheriff releases video of how they did it

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva released video reportedly showing inmates purposely spreading and catching coronavirus in an attempt to force their release.

Villanueva talked about the shocking inmate behavior in a media briefing on Monday.

“It’s sad to think someone deliberately tried to expose themself to COVID-19. As a result of this behavior, from this particular module 21 inmates tested positive for COVID-19 within a week of these videos being taken,” he explained.

The video came from the North County Correctional Facility in Castaic and reportedly shows inmates huddled together and passing a mask around that they hoped would help them become infected.

Villanueva says the spike in coronavirus cases is due to these efforts to purposely spread the virus.

Here’s the video from Villanueva:

“There was some mistaken belief among the inmate population that if they tested positive, there was a way to force our hand and somehow release more inmates out of our jail environment, and that’s not gonna happen,” Villanueva said according to CBS Los Angeles.

He also indicated that 107 of his employees had tested positive, with 320 quarantined.

Progressive activists are clamoring for inmates to be released over concerns that the crowded conditions in prisons and jails are perfect for a virus to spread quickly and easily.

Sheriff Villanueva made headlines earlier when he expressed worry that many of the criminals he released from jail over the pandemic might go out and start a crime wave in Los Angeles.

Here’s a local news report about the video:
