I locked my door twice. I closed my bedroom sliding door. It may have been irrational but let me explain what happened.
I was in Los Angeles, California and muted the local nightly news three nights in a row.
Here are the news stories I saw the first half hour:
- Street vendors violently beaten – growing danger.
- Street takeovers. This is where I saw a video of cars in streets and bridges stopping traffic and spinning with large crowds watching and waiting to be hit by the car. It spread out of control.
- Large groups of people on bikes blowing through traffic for fun and protesting.
- Knott’s Berry Farm closed for the first time in its history due to unruly behavior and altercations – multiple fights and gunshots fired.
- New website to not pay rent if you get an eviction notice.
- California under state of emergency extended.
- Race car driver, Bobby East, stabbed in the chest to death at an Orange County gas station.
- Olympic star, Kim Glass, attacked and beaten by a homeless man.
- Multiple stories on home invasions and store robberies.
There is bad news everywhere in the United States.
But Los Angeles is not what it used to be.
I love Los Angeles. I love California.
I hate the socialist politics. I hate how the state has been lawless and filled with the homeless.
It’s not safe.
It’s not a place to raise a family or retire.
I’ve lived in Los Angeles for all my life… I fled with my wife and a million others.
Do you have a similar story to share? Are you a California refugee, too?
