Here’s another data point to confirm that democracy does work. The super woke residents of Beverly Hills are reaping the benefits of their election choices. LA doesn’t arrest most offenders anymore and so the gangbangers and other career criminals have decided to branch out from South Central and visit their wealthier friends in Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Santa Monica and Los Feliz.
“On March 22, in the broad daylight of a typically gorgeous day in Beverly Hills, thieves in hoodies and sunglasses took a sledgehammer to the plate glass window of Peter Sedghi’s boutique and furiously rummaged through the shards. In less than 90 seconds, the robbers stole more than $3 million worth of jewels. Two days later, in response to a wave of high-end robberies, the Los Angeles Police Department announced there would be no arrests. Instead, it cautioned Hollywood residents not to wear high quality jewelry in public.
“Beverly Hills is one of the most affluent, safest neighborhoods in the world and now everyone is scared,” Sedghi said. “All of my clients – no one wears anything.”
While the total number of rapes fell in Los Angeles during the 37-month period studied, their share spiked in predominantly white neighborhoods – rising 18.2% in neighborhoods where they comprise 81% to 100% of residents.“
Personally I’m as pleased as can be. I think this new form of community outreach is long overdue.
“The zip codes showing the largest increases are home to film and pop stars, including Beverly Hills, of “90210” fame, where Beyonce and Jay-Z have their West Coast house; Bel Air, of “Fresh Prince” Will Smith fame, where Jennifer Lopez now resides; and Los Feliz, where Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom share a house and where Angelina Jolie has resided since her divorce from Brad Pitt. Nearby, the U.S. Postal Service has suspended delivery to one neighborhood in Santa Monica – a town where celebrities including Tom Cruise, Christian Bale and Sandra Bullock reportedly have homes – because “multiple carriers have been subjected to assault and threats of assault.”
Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Angelina Jolie. Yep, they will be able to embrace the more enlightened criminal justice practices currently on view in their neighborhoods. They might want to tone down the bling displays and possibly invest in an extra bodyguard or two.
