Massive California train looting prompts intense criticism of Democrats, Gavin Newsom: ‘This is America?’

Meghan McCain tweeted, ‘This looks like a third world country’

Critics excoriated California Gov. Gavin Newsom and his fellow Democrats Thursday over a set of videos showing the shocking aftermath of looted trains in Los Angeles. 

The videos, posted on Twitter by local CBS photojournalist John Schreiber, showed massive amounts of opened packages, cardboard, and packaging materials strewn around the tracks.

“Keep hearing of train burglaries in LA on the scanner so went to [Lincoln Heights] to see it all. And… there’s looted packages as far as the eye can see. Amazon packages, [UPS] boxes, unused Covid tests, fishing lures, epi pens. Cargo containers left busted open on trains,” Schreiber wrote, before further detailing what his team found at the scene.

Critics took to social media to blast Newsom, as well as members of his party, for their handling of the situation, with some suggesting it was the “new normal” for Californians. Others lamented that Newsom was still the governor at all.
