Fox News has obtained audio of a convicted murderer saying he’s going to get Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón’s name tattooed on his face because the prosecutor massively reduced charges in his case.
“I’m going to get that n—–’s name on my face. That’s a champ right there. F—in’ Gascón,” says gang member Luis Angel Hernandez in a jailhouse phone call. The audio was first made public in an episode of “Tucker Carlson Originals” about Gascón called, “Suicide Of Los Angeles,” which is now streaming on Fox Nation.
According to a law enforcement source, Hernandez shot and killed a delivery person for a marijuana delivery service during an armed robbery in 2018. He is a member of the OTF gang.
Upon taking office, Gascón implemented a controversial directive that barred prosecutors from applying “enhancements” in nearly all cases, no matter how heinous the crime. Enhancements increase sentences based on the circumstances of a crime.
“A robbery can be a purse snatch with no injury, or it can be a gun in your face,” said Michele Hanisee, a current LA deputy district attorney. “Sentencing enhancements make sure that the perpetrator of the first and the perpetrator of the second are treated differently.”
Hernandez faced enhancements for being a gang member, using a firearm in the commission of a crime, and for the “special circumstance” of committing murder during an armed robbery.
