LA is a mess. There’s trash all over the roads. Cops don’t respond to calls. It’s close to anarchy here. Is Garcetti already in Mumbai? Is anyone running this city? Karen Bass seems to be saying she’s going to maintain the status quo. She knows how to work the system. No thanks!— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) October 26, 2022

Is this a rightwing fanatic, OR, a common street criminal? The Narrative hinges on the motive.
