Surprise, surprise - turns out this teen attacker teen was no angel.
This is no teen angel who made a bad choice. He poisoned a so girl badly she had to be hospitalized, and now has run over two innocent victims who are incredibly lucky to be alive. This is a dangerous psychopath who should be behind bars.Per multiple law enforcement sources, the juvie was on probation, & violating it, at the time of this hit & run, and he had been previously convicted of felony poisoning after he spiked a teen girl’s drink at Palmdale high school in 2019. She was hospitalized.
This new revelation is sure to provoke further outrage.
On Saturday RedState reported that soft on crime LA County District Attorney George Gascon pursued light charges against the suspect, even though there is horrific video of the event and the testimony of multiple eyewitnesses. And although Gascon describes the mother’s injuries as a mere “laceration to her elbow,” they were actually quite gruesome. The only reason she and her baby are alive is because of her incredible quick thinking and bravery.
The teen was ordered to serve a mere 5-7 months in a “probation camp” and will have his record expunged when he turns 18. Incredibly, probation camp is described as “an alternative sentence less severe than juvenile detention.” This attacker didn’t even rate juvenile detention?
Melugin also said he spoke with the mother Sunday, identified only as Rachel, and that she was “unaware of his criminal history, or that he was on probation when the hit & run took place. She is furious about the light sentence and how this case was handled.”
In a statement to Fox, she said:
But I can't have certain guns. The left covers up for youthful psychopaths' and when they finally go off for the umpteenth time I am blamed.
