Hahn Condemns Ambush of Sheriff's Deputies, Calls for Calm

Los Angeles, CA — Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn has issued the following statement after two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were shot while in their vehicle near the Compton Blue Line Metro Station on September 12:

“This ambush of two of our LA County sheriff’s deputies is horrifying and heinous. It is by the Grace of God and the skill of the incredible nurses and surgeons at St. Francis Medical Center that these deputies survived this attack. My prayers are with them, their families, and their colleagues who are working to find the perpetrator.

We all must come together to condemn any violence. I am asking for calm and for protests to remain peaceful so that we can pursue constructive solutions to the challenges we face as a community.”

    Supervisor Hahn condemns violence when it seems politically advantageous to do so. Don’t forget she was , along with all her colleagues , calling to refund the Sheriff and other law enforcement a few short weeks ago. She backs the crazy idea to close our jails. Get back into reality..criminals can and will be dangerous. They take advantage of us. We need to protect ourselves from them.

    The board of supervisors is a left wing, bunch of crazy DEMs set out to distroy this county.
