Gang Member Vows to Get Soros-Funded LA District Attorney’s Name Tattooed on Face
'That’s a champ right there. F****** Gascon'
A gang member convicted of murder has vowed he would get a tattoo of George Soros-funded Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon’s name on his face, reports say.
Luis Angel Hernandez made the comment after crediting the prosecutor with a policy that reduced charges in his case, as heard in audio obtained by Fox News for an episode of Tucker Carlson Originals.
"I’m going to get that n****’s name on my face," Hernandez said in a recorded phone call from jail.
"That’s a champ right there. F****** Gascon," he said.
The audio played during an episode titled "Suicide of Los Angeles," discusses a controversial directive Gascon implemented barring "gang enhancements" that allow for additional punishments to be added to the felony charges for a person who commits a crime "for the benefit of, at the discretion of, or in association with any criminal street gang."
Hernandez, who was convicted of fatally shooting a marijuana deliveryman during an armed robbery, is associated with the OTF gang, Fox News reported.
Prior to the new directive, Hernandez faced several enhancements to his charges, including for being a gang member.
"This s*** looking real good. Now we got a new DA in LA … so they’re going to drop a gang of, um, like my gun enhancement, my gang enhancement," Hernandez said.
"He’s making historic changes for all of us, fool.
"I’m just grateful, fool.
"Like, I got good news off that s***."
Hernandez, who initially faced life in prison without parole, will be eligible for youthful offender parole, which could limit his time in prison to 25 years.
Gascon has defended his directive, arguing that gang and other sentencing enhancements are a "principal driver of mass incarceration."
Earlier this year, Gascón backed off from some of his controversial policies amid growing public outcry about lenient sentences, rising crime, and a newly-launched effort to force a recall election.
In 2020, Gascón was elected with help of George Soros' millions.
As Neon Nettle reported:
Soros has backed radical prosecutors across the country as Democrats pursue an agenda of “criminal justice reform.”
A massive crime wave overwhelmed many Democrat-run cities and is becoming a major political issue.
