Los Angeles is experiencing a surge in crime rates, that has gotten so bad that LAPD detective Jamie McBride is telling tourists not to visit.
He does not believe the police force can protect right now.
"Don’t visit because we don't think we can keep you safe right now,'" comparing the city to the movie The Purge, "instead of 24 hours to commit your crime, they have 365 days."
McBride blames sentencing guidelines due to Proposition 47, as well as LA's zero-bail policy for an increased number of smash-and-grab robberies. The crime continues as Slim 400 was shot and killed on Wednesday.
There is expected to be a large tourist turnout in Rolling Loud, which takes place over the course of the next three days.
