The decade's most triggering comedy
Famed rapper Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent, declared the Democrat-controlled city of Los Angeles “finished” after the city reinstated zero-bail policy.
A Superior Court judge issued the order in late May after several plaintiffs filed a class action lawsuit claiming that they suffered “negative consequences because they could not afford bail, including missed work, separation from their families and lapsed medical care,” according to KTLA.
“LA is finished,” Jackson wrote in an Instagram post that included a news segment. “Watch how bad it gets out there.”
In the video that Jackson posted to Instagram, the narrator says that “the sheriff’s department will no longer detain people for crimes such as theft, shoplifting, drug use, vandalism, battery, and a whole host of other non-serious, non-violent crimes that affect the quality of life of people here in Los Angeles County.”
The news clip said that many people will be released immediately and will not have to pay bail before their arraignment.

The judge reportedly urged local officials to testify and explain to him why he should not issue the order and “he was surprised when no one stood up to challenge it,” the narrator says.
“No one challenged it, not LAPD Chief Michael Moore, LA County Sheriff Robert Luna, or District Attorney George Gascogne,” the news clip added.
