Corruption doesn’t end with the police. Leland Yee illustrates San Francisco politics at its worst.
Yee is a major supporter of gun control. Providing Chinese gangsters with automatic weapons while chipping away at legal gun ownership really says it all. 26 people were arrested in all, on charges from murder-for-hire to influence peddling.
Every gun law comes with the implied caveat that criminals will probably ignore the law, whereas law abiding citizens will be disarmed. Yee went the extra step and armed the criminals himself.
