As the car drove away, the woman jumped immediately and ran after her child. But the car collided into a truck, which blocked its route.
Drugs were reportedly found in the driver’s system, and marijuana was located inside the vehicle.
The teenager, who had a prior record, was sentenced to five to seven months of juvenile detention, due to Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón’s soft-on-crime policies, Breitbart News reported in June:
Gascón was elected in 2020 with the help of millions of dollars in spending from left-wing billionaire George Soros, who has spent lavishly to elect dozens of left-wing prosecutors across the nation in the wake of the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
In California, Gascón attracted the support of the Democratic Party elite, including Governor Gavin Newsom and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti — who switched his endorsement from incumbent Jackie Lacey, the first black woman to hold the job.
The woman hit by the car reportedly said she is a Democrat who voted for Gascón.
Mother said in a victim impact statement: “I have never been more surprised or disappointed and, in fact, I have never felt so victimized as I have by the system and current policies of L.A.’s DA, George Gascón.”
