California’s Zero Bail Lets One Thief Be Arrested 3 Times in 12 Hours

Or as pro-crime zero-bail activists call this sort of thing, “awkward”.

The Glendora Police Department said Friday on Facebook that 24-year-old Dijon Landrum from Monterey Park racked up three citations between 8:28 a.m. and 8:50 p.m. on Wednesday after three incidents in the city located about 23 miles east of Los Angeles.

According to police, the first incident happened around 8:28 a.m. when officers responding to a call of a man who was attempting to break into a vehicle on the 1400 block of South Grand Avenue.

When officers arrived at the scene, they contacted Landrum, who was attempting to drive away in a stolen vehicle from the East Los Angeles area. In addition to driving a stolen vehicle, police said the 24-year-old had stolen property and narcotics with him.

“Landrum was arrested,” police said. “Due to the California Zero-Bail Policy, he was issued a citation and released.”

He was driving a stolen car and had drugs. In the happy bygone days of zero tolerance, he might have spent months, maybe even years in jail, while the ACLU wailed like banshees.
