“There isn’t a glass cover on a Brinks lock box,” noted skeptical Fox News host Jeanine Pirro regarding the claim by Democratic Los Angeles mayoral candidate Karen Bass that someone broke into her home and stole her guns.
Pirro raised questions about Bass’s burglary story during a discussion on “The Five,” questioning the claims that two guns were stolen from her home but nothing else.

“Last night I came home and discovered that my house had been broken into and burglarized,” Bass said in a statement.
“LAPD was called, and I appreciate their assistance. At this time, it appears that only two firearms, despite being safely and securely stored, were stolen. Cash, electronics, and other valuables were not. It’s unnerving and, unfortunately, it’s something that far too many Angelenos have faced,” she added.

To Judge Jeanine Pirro, who has surely “seen everything” in her many years as a prosecutor and a judge, this sounded mighty fishy.
“Let me tell you something, she’s got two guns that are registered for which she has no permits, okay? Only two guns are stolen, but they’re ‘safely and securely in a Brinks lock box.’ How did the guy who allegedly is Hispanic that they’re referring to… they didn’t tell us how they got a description since no one was at home. Maybe they had the ring thing, I don’t know. But how does a criminal not take cash?” she wondered.
Pirro was incredulous that a criminal would break into a home and steal a Brinks lock box that of course doesn’t have a glass cover, not knowing what was inside it, while leaving other valuables behind.

“As it relates to the gun, she only has it registered, she doesn’t have a permit. She’s had it for 40 years and never bothered to get a permit. I don’t know what’s going on, but let me tell you, my antennas are up here,” Pirro told her co-hosts. “Something is totally off. No criminal goes in and doesn’t take cash.”
Bass has previously stated that if elected, she will be “smart on crime,” saying, “My plan calls for getting officers on the beat immediately in neighborhoods that want to see an increased police presence. But I believe the quickest way to get officers on the beat is to get them from behind the desk.”
Bass also claimed in a June mayoral candidate debate that she feels safe when walking around L.A. In fact, she felt that her safety is a “10 out of 10.”

The Bass burglary report shows again the consequences of soft-on-crime policies in Democrat-run cities, with Los Angeles violent crime, shootings, and robberies all up significantly since 2020.
According to Los Angeles station KABC, the Los Angeles Police Protective League reported the homicide rate is also on pace to be the highest in 15 years. “This is very, very scary for our city and it’s scary for the residents that we are supposed to protect,” said Sgt. Jeretta Sandoz from the Protective League.
