Disgraced Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon commented about the El Monte police officers, Corporal Michael Paredes, 42, and Officer Joseph Santana, 31, who were shot as they entered a motel room to confront the suspect in a reported stabbing.

Paredes and Santana will be remembered as heroes.

From a statement from the city, the Police Department, and the El Monte Police Officers Association:

“There are no words to describe our grief and devastation by this senseless act as we learned about the passing of two of our police officers. It weighs heavy on our hearts and we are sending our support to their families. We would also like to thank the El Monte community and our surrounding government agencies for the outpouring support we have received in the last few hours,”

For those who may not know, here is some background information about the tragic incident. 35-year-old Justin William Flores tried running away after the incident and got in a shootout with at least one other officer in a parking lot.

Flores was a known gang member with an extensive criminal record dating back to 2010. In 2021, Flores was extended a plea deal by Gascon’s office. Flores received the bare minimum sentence with no jail time. He was placed on probation — another example of how Gascon’s soft-on-crime policies have made the citizens of Los Angeles unsafe.

“This individual should have been in custody for at least 32 months,” said LA County Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Hatami.

Hatami will be an excellent choice to become the next DA of Los Angeles if Gascon is recalled.

The mother of officer Santana, Olga Garcia, blamed Gascon for the tragedy. Garcia said:

“I blame Gascón for all this … He needs to go. He probably got out because of Gascon letting all these criminals out … It’s not fair.”

Prosecutor and Vice President of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys Eric Siddall, an “advocate for responsible and sustainable reform,” said:

“Mr. Flores should have been released from custody … He should’ve spent 32 months in state prison.”

Gascon spoke about the murders of Paredes and Santana, saying:

“I … I … I… This has been very emotionally traumatic for me as well.”

You read that right. In an interview with NBC, Gascon said it has also been traumatic for him. The same person whose policies allowed Flores out of prison early, which led to an officer’s and corporal’s death.

Los Angeles County will have an opportunity to recall Gascon on November 8th if the recall qualifies to be on the ballot. The deadline to sign the recall is July 6th.
