My sense of safety in LA went from 10/10 to 5/10

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) admitted during a debate between Los Angeles mayoral candidates on Wednesday night that her sense of personal safety in the city had gone from “10/10” in March to “5/ 10” today, after his house was broken into.

Billionaire property developer Rick Caruso, who finished second to Bass in the primary election, replied, “You worry about your kids going to school. I don’t want to give my child a ‘5’ and say, ‘Well, there’s a 50/50 chance you’ll pass.’ »

Crime is one of the main issues in the election, along with homelessness – although Bass, like other Democrats, has seized on the abortion issue to motivate voters against Caruso, a former Republican who has donated to pro-life candidates in the past.

Earlier this month, Bass was the victim of a burglary at his home in which two guns were stolen. Bass told local Fox affiliate KTTV-11 that “his guns were taped, locked in a safe and hidden in a closet” when they were stolen.

During the debate, Caruso pointed out that current mayor Eric Garcetti had “defunded” the police by $150 million; Bass was an early critic of the “defund the police” slogan and supports increasing the size of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The two candidates clashed over their homelessness policies and an ongoing corruption case at the University of Southern California, where Bass, who is not the target of charges, received a $95,000 scholarship she belatedly reported to Congress.
