In an interview with authorities that aired on the night of the primary election for mayor of Los Angeles, Congresswoman Karen Bass committed to combat violence.
On Tuesday, residents of the nation’s second-largest city, Los Angeles, will vote for a new mayor, and one of the primary concerns on the ballot is the city’s high crime rate.
One of the candidates that are currently in the lead in this campaign stated to the media that to make the streets of Los Angeles safer, “I think the appropriate response is to be smart on crime.”
Karen Bass, a veteran Democrat, was very clear about her intentions as the primary election approached “My plan dictates that neighborhoods or communities that desire a greater police presence ought to have officers on the beat as quickly as is humanly practicable. On the other hand, I believe that the quickest way to get police officers out on the streets is to remove them from their desks.”
