LA DA GASCON TO DOWNSIZE AND RENAME HARDCORE GANG UNIT
Sources in the LA County DA Office’s Hardcore Gangs told Melugin that they were informed by the office’s upper management Wednesday evening that their unit will be downsized. On top of the downsize, the unit will be renamed because “administration doesn’t like it,” Melugin reports.
“So there isn’t going to be a hardcore gang unit anymore, because I guess the DA, George Gascon, finds that term offensive to the community,” a prosecutor in Gascón’s office told FOX 11 under the condition of anonymity.
The prosecutor was one of the members of the unit who were called to the meeting to learn that the Hardcore Gangs unit was going to be downsized.
