The LA Times Finally Reports on the San Francisco Sanctuary Murder Case
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and Jennifer Siebel
After more than a month, the LA Times, after much criticism, has finally decided to run a story about the San Francisco murder case in which an illegal alien gang member with two felony convictions is accused of murdering a family of three this June. The story ran Saturday.
The Times story was little more than a re-write of previous articles reported by the San Francisco Chronicle and AP, plus an interview of a family member of the murder victims. As for any independent inquiry by the Times or new information not already known to the public, the was nothing added.
Yet, the Times had to insert the following paragraph to suit their own liberal agenda:
"Immigration activists have embraced the grieving family using the June 22 deaths of Anthony, Matthew and Michael Bologna to call for change. Conservative broadcasters have vilified the city and its officials all week."
Read what you will into that paragraph. Yes, conservative broadcasters have vilified the city and its officials. Why not? The three victims would be alive today if not for San Francisco's Sanctuary policy. The accused, Edwin Ramos, a 21-year-old member of the vicious Salvadoran gang, MS-13, should have been turned over to ICE after his previous violent felony convictions when he was 17-or after he was detained on a gun investigation this past April.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. It has recently been disclosed that the city has been shipping illegal alien juvenile offenders to "youth homes" in other parts of the state such as San Bernadino County, from which they walk away. One case involved a group of Honduran crack dealers.
And as the Bologna family grieves, and Danielle Bologna, the widow of the murdered father, tries to put her life back together, San Francisco's playboy mayor, Gavin Newsom, who is largely and unapologetically responsible for this disgrace, tied the knot for the second time this past weekend, this time with some actress named Jennifer Siebel at her father's ranch in Montana. A quiet affair it was not. Numerous high-flyers attended, including none other than Nancy Pelosi and others who arrived on the Google jet. Participants reportedly rode to the service on horseback. Honeymoon? You bet, in Africa no less. Nothing but the best for San Francisco's narcissistic mayor.
And nothing for his law-abiding citizens like Danielle Bologna.
