Controversial George Soros-backed Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón hired a public defender with a history of anti-police rhetoric as a prosecutor in his administration.
“I’ve confirmed D.A. George Gascon has hired public defender Tiffiny Blacknell to his administration as a Grade 4 prosecutor,” FOXLA investigative reporter Bill Melugin reported on Twitter. “Blacknell served on Gascon’s policy committee during his campaign. She has called LAPD ‘barbarians’ and says ‘prisons should be abolished.’”
