L.A. District Attorney Removed Death Penalty From Unrepentant Gang Banger, Who Murdered Cop And A Family Member, Because Of ‘Public Outcry’

A violent and unrepentant murderer is being let off the hook from a death penalty sentence due to government officials caving to the demands of the public.

Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón said he would not seek the death penalty for Michael Christopher Mejia, 30, charged with killing a police officer and his own cousin in 2017.

Officer Keith Boyer, 53, was killed when he responded to a report of a traffic collision in which Mejia was involved. Mejia also shot officer Patrick Hazell while trying to flee the scene of the crash. Hazell survived.

Deputy District Attorneys Garrett Dameron and Geoff Lewin both objected to removing the death penalty from the case.

“[D]espite our attempts to prevent this from happening, we’ve been ordered to remove the death penalty as punishment consideration in this case,” Dameron said.

Gascón, who was sworn into office two months ago, pledged he would no longer pursue the death penalty, adding that he had a “mandate from the public.”

Boyer’s stepfather, Don Clark, said removing the death penalty is “a punch to the gut.”

“People don’t realize how hard it is on the families,” Clark said. “What Gascón’s doing — not only to our family, but to the cousin’s family — but to so many other families … that’s absolutely horrendous.”
