Major rail carrier Union Pacific is considering rerouting its trains after blasting Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon for going soft on crime amid a spike in rail car looting. A representative for Union Pacific stated that at least 90 rail car containers are broken into each day, with criminals being caught and released only to come back and loot again. Around $5 million in claims, losses, and damages have been reported to UP over the past year.

Major rail carrier Union Pacific is considering rerouting its trains after blasting Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon for going soft on crime amid a spike in rail car looting.

UP General Director of Public Affairs Adrian Guerrero wrote a letter detailing how at least 90 rail car containers are broken into each day, with criminals being caught and released only to come back and loot again.

“These individuals are generally caught and released back onto the streets in less than twenty-four hours,” Guerrero wrote. “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 [UP] officers that charges will be pled down to simple trespassing — which bears no serious consequence.”

Around $5 million in claims, losses, and damages have been reported to UP over the past year.

Video from KCBS of the looting damage shows thousands of opened packages on the ground.

The spike in crime is causing UP to consider rerouting its trains around LA.

“UP is now contemplating serious changes to our operating plans to avoid Los Angeles County,” Guerrero said. “We do not take this effort lightly, particularly during the supply chain crisis, as this drastic change to our operations will create significant impacts and strains throughout the local, state, and national supply chain systems.”

Gascon’s office replied to Guerrero’s criticism and concerns, stating it is committed to ensuring the safety of LA County’s railroad tracks.

May 16, 2022 Newsmax 3

An estimated $163 billion in pandemic-related benefits were fraudulently obtained by criminals, according to the Labor Department. The Biden administration said that it inherited the problem and blamed out-of-date systems and the lack of state-by-state data sharing.

The current government in Los Angeles has the monopoly on violence for that community. It steals money from its citizens in the form of taxes but then refuses to protect the property of those same citizens. Also, nobody else is allowed to apprehend, prosecute, and punish these thugs appropriately. This is an untenable situation which is going to lead us to the logical solution of polycentric law which will allow competition between different entities to provide security. If one group of police are useless, you’ll be able to pay a different police force to do a better job.

Considered? Those UP trains should have been rerouted as soon as this problem started. What’s the insurance companies think about all of this? They and us end up paying for what appears to be legalized theft. What’s even worse, voters let them get away with it!
