Mobs of thieves are are now causing havoc along Los Angeles’ railways, descending on temporarily stalled freight cars and pilfering them for the goods they contain.

The situation has gotten so bad Union Pacific is now considering bypassing the city entirely and has also slammed the city for its far-left policies that have allowed criminals to go unpunished.

As The Daily Wire reports:

An official with Union Pacific (UP) revealed late last week that the organization believes that approximately 90 shipping containers are compromised by theives every day as images have gone viral in recent days showing the aftermath of the thieves stealing thousands of packages.

“Since December 2020, UP has experienced an over 160% increase in criminal rail theft in Los Angeles County. In several months during that period, the increase from the previous year surpassed 200%. In October 2021 alone, the increase was 356% over compared to October 2020. Not only do these dramatic increases represent retail product thefts – they include increased assaults and armed robberies of UP employees performing their duties moving trains.”

Guerrero then slammed the city’s far-left politics, saying that they are enabling the criminals who he says brag about being let off easy for their crimes.

“Criminals are caught and arrested, turned over to local authorities for booking, arraigned before the local courts, charges are reduced to a misdemeanor or petty offense, and the criminal is released after paying a nominal fine,” Guerrero said. “These individuals are generally caught and released back onto the streets in less than twenty-four hours. Even with all the arrests made, the no-cash bail policy and extended timeframe for suspects to appear in court is causing re-victimization to UP by these same criminals. In fact, criminals boast to our officers that charges will be pied down to simple trespassing – which bears no serious consequence. Without any judicial deterrence or consequence, it is no surprise that over the past year UP has witnessed the significant increase in criminal rail theft described above.”

The ultimate solution is a gigantic earthquake that causes the destruction of everything West of the SanAndreas faultline.

Been waiting on that for decades now . But the only thing I fear is that what breaks off won’t fall in or float away . It will just septate by a few miles of water and continue to lord over the mainland state .Still we can always hope .

If California were to break off and drown then the water would devour the rest of the state. You have no idea how much of the food is grown there.

Yup. Let’s just keep on electing those dumocrats – California is just a precursor to what the USA will look like in the near future.
