- Jon Hatami, a longtime child abuse prosecutor in LA, blamed DA George Gascon for the county’s nearly 40 per cent rise in homicides since 2019
- Hatami said Gascon’s liberal policies, like imposing $0 bail for misdemeanors and low-level felonies allow career criminals to be out and about in LA
- It comes after LA saw two murders last Thursday at the hands of men with previous records, one of whom was out on $1,000 bail
- Hatami urged LA residents to kick Gascon out of office, and for cities across America to reject liberal district attorneys

A longtime Los Angeles prosecutor has slammed the county’s liberal politicians and district attorney for the rising homicide rates in LA following the murders of a 24-year-old woman and a 70-year-old nurse this week.
Jon Hatami, a child abuse prosecutor who led the infamous Gabriel Fernandez case in 2014, warned cities across America to reject liberal district attorneys.
He has blamed the soft-on-crime policies of LA DA George Gascon for soaring violent crime and homicide rate in LA, including the recent murders of Brianna Kupfer, 24, and Sandra Shells, 70.
Hatami and other critics said Gascon has failed to stop rising homicide rates in LA, and said his policies allowed career criminal Shawn Smith, 31, to be out on a $1,000 bond when he allegedly stabbed Kupfer, a UCLA grad student, to death inside the Croft House luxury store last Thursday.
‘Nobody should have to be around a district attorney who fails to fight for victims and fails to fight for the family members of victims,’ Hatami told Fox News.
‘Nobody should have a district attorney who refuses to file charges against murderers and rapists and child abusers to the fullest extent of the law. That person does not deserve to be the D.A.’
Homicides in LA have grown nearly 40 per cent since 2019 after the county reported nearly 400 murders at the end of 2021.
