This story breaks my heart into a million pieces.
Brianna Kupfer, a 24-year old UCLA grad student, was working alone in the Croft House furniture store in Los Angeles, when a lunatic homeless man entered the store at around 1:50 pm last Thursday and stabbed her to death before escaping through the back door.
Twenty minutes later, a customer found her in the store.
I can’t even begin to imagine what her family is going through – the grief her Mom and Dad are having to deal with right now. It’s absolutely inconceivable to me.
Her father, Todd Kupfer, said this:
“We have a lot of politicians that somehow forgot about people and think the key to getting elected is to support the lowest rung of our society and to give them rights and somehow that’s the answer to getting votes.”
He’s so right. A local government’s responsibility is to ensure the safety of its people. And these Democrat-run cities are failing miserably at that right now – to the tune of ENSURING the rights of criminals and illegals before the rights and safety of American citizens. It’s outrageous, and people are fleeing those cities as a result.
More Los Angeles mayhem:
Jacqueline Avant, the 81 year-old wife of music producer Clarence Avant, became the most high-profile robbery victim when she was shot and killed at her $2.7 million Beverly Hills mansion in December.
On January 3 in nearby San Jose, nine hammer-wielding thugs stormed a San Jose shopping center and smashed glass display cases at three stores before fleeing with $110,000 in jewelry.
Los Angeles police arrested 14 people last November in connection with 11 recent smash-and-grab robberies at stores, where nearly $340,000 worth of merchandise was stolen.
A Los Angeles Nordstrom, a Lululemon in Studio City, a Fairfax district store, and a CVS pharmacy in South Los Angeles were among the stores hit.
However, due to county’s zero-bail policies, the suspects were all released within hours of being handcuffed.
The suspect is identified as a Black male of unknown age wearing a dark hoody, sunglasses, a white N-95 mask, dark skinny jeans, dark shoes. He was also carrying a dark back pack.
Don’t even get me started on the mask mandates and how that affects identifying criminals. These draconian mandates only increasingly embolden criminals and make it that much harder for law enforcement to catch these lunatics. But when they do? “Woke” District Attorneys are letting them go right back into circulation. Because Democrats.
We’re seeing the decay of Democrat-run cities at such a rapid rate, and consequently, our country is becoming a total sh*thole – a direct result of these side-with-the-criminals Dem policies. I, for one, am beyond tired of watching it happen while the decision-makers live with gilded walls around their mansions (while simultaneously saying that walls for thee are raaaaaaaaaaacist).
We must get involved and vote accordingly in ’22 and ’24, y’all. There is no choice now – it’s imperative for us to do so. Run for local office, school board, or congress, for crying out loud. Just start. And start local. It’s true what they say – all politics are local.
Because my kids and future grandkids (and yours) deserve so much better than what what we’re allowing to happen right now.
