A protest organized by talk show host Doug McIntyre and broadcast live on KABC 790AM drew several hundred people to Councilman Jack Weiss’ Westside office in support of demands for a crackdown on illegal immigrant gangbangers.
Weiss ws nowhere to be seen. He was off dedicating a three-way crosswalk with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa while other council members — like Bernard Parks talking about banning all smoking near any other person — were doing their best to distract public attention from the Jamiel’s Law controversy
Even in the face of the planned protest, Weiss, the wannabe City Attorney, who has kept Jamiel’s Law bottled up in committee backed down and agreed — after asked Chief Bill Bratton what to do — to hold hearings on the proposal but not until October.
That leaves the mayor, police chief and most council members in the high-risk situation of trying to explain the next killing of an innocent person like Jamiel Shaw Jr. by an illegal immigrant gangbanger with a criminal record.
Jamiel Shaw Sr. and his wife Anita, a soldier just back from assignment in Iraq, and Danielle Bologna whose three family members were gunned down in the Bay Area by an illegal immigrant gangster attended the rally after appearing in studio with McIntyre.
“Weiss has been put in the position of being held accountable,” Shaw Sr. said in a television interview.
“Since April he’s being trying to hide it…The issue is are you for illegal alien gangbangers or against them.”.
