It’s a wonder only around half of Los Angeles residents currently disapprove of District Attorney George Gascón’s soft-on-crime approach when leaked audio revealed that a convicted murderer is such a fan of the DA’s policies, he wants to tattoo “that n***a’s name” on his face.
As part of an upcoming episode of the Fox Nation show “Tucker Carlson Originals” titled “Suicide of Los Angeles,” audio was released of a phone conversation conducted by Luis Angel Hernandez and an unnamed individual. On the call, Hernandez, an OTF gang member who was convicted in 2018 of murder during an armed robbery where he shot and killed a marijuana delivery person, brags about the likelihood of his sentence getting reduced.
“This sh*t looking real good,” Hernandez can be heard saying. “Now we got a new DA in LA, so they’re gonna – I got court on the 14th, fool. Right there in Compton on Thursday, so…They’re going to drop a gang of, um, like my gun enhancement, my gang enhancement. My gang enhancement is 10 years, fool, for being a gang member. And then the gun in the commission of a crime.”
According to Fox News, Hernandez had pled guilty and was originally facing life without the possibility of parole. However, Gascón’s lenient policies have been a boon for criminal offenders.
“I’m going to get that n*gga’s name on my face. That’s a champ right there. F*ckin’ Gascón,” Hernandez lauded. “That’s the n*gga right there, bro. He’s making historic changes for all of us, fool. Ya know? So…I’m just grateful, fool. Like, I got good news off that sh*t.”
“So at least now I know. They’re like, ‘you’re coming home, blood.’ Like, they already told me, my lawyer told me, ‘you’re coming home,'” he said at his hearing where his sentence was reduced to 25 years, making him eligible for youthful offender parole.
Gascón has repeatedly shown favorability toward criminals while disregarding the safety of the public and inmates alike. In March, Phillip Dorsett filmed himself drinking moonshine with his cellmate in New Folsom State Prison on a “contraband cellphone” where they toasted “Celebrating us going home on this Gascón directive.”
Dorsett was convicted for the 2005 murder of a rival gang member which earned him a 40-year sentence. Under the lenient DA’s policies, after 15 years inmates are eligible for resentencing.
In addition to the possibility of two convicted murderers being released, along with potential scores of others, Gascón can also be held responsible for putting young girls being held at a juvenile facility at risk after allowing Hannah Tubbs, a 26-year-old male who identifies as a woman, to be sentenced as a minor for assaulting a pre-teen girl shortly before he turned 18.
Tubbs bragged about the light punishment for his crimes.
Michele Hanisee, an LA deputy district attorney, explained how Gascón’s barring sentencing enhancements can impact prosecution. “A robbery can be a purse snatch with no injury, or it can be a gun in your face,” she offered as an example. “Sentencing enhancements make sure that the perpetrator of the first and the perpetrator of the second are treated differently.”
The reaction from Los Angelenos to Gascón’s soft-on-crime approach has been to attempt a second recall effort to remove him from office. A recent poll conducted by UC Berkeley shows at least 50 percent of residents disapprove of his performance.

The recall effort against Gascón provides until July 6 for petitioners to collect at least 566,857 registered voter signatures amounting to 10 percent of registrants. Should that mark be met, the recall effort can proceed.
