A pet project backed by some of the most liberal celebrities in Hollywood nearly cost a Las Vegas man his life, a new lawsuit claims.
The lawsuit stems from a horrific shooting a year ago. On December 20, 2021, Rashawn Gaston-Anderson, 24, walked into the ShangHai Taste, just a few miles west of the Las Vegas Strip, and opened fire. Chengyan Wang, a waiter at the establishment, was alone at the time and sustained anywhere from seven to 11 gunshot wounds.
Gaston-Anderson eventually pled guilty to attempted robbery with a deadly weapon and mayhem with the use of a deadly weapon in connection to the shooting and has been sentenced to serve seven to 18 years in prison.
Despite life-threatening injuries, Wang managed to survive the shooting and has now filed a lawsuit against several defendants, including the nonprofit organization that allowed Gaston-Anderson to be out on the streets that day in the first place.
The Bail Project, based in California, is a “national” organization that provides bail assistance to thousands of accused persons across the country in an attempt to “restore the presumption of innocence, reunite families, and challenge a system that criminalizes race and poverty,” its website claims. A Las Vegas office for the Bail Project, which opened in February 2021, posted $3,000 for Gaston-Anderson just six days before he shot Wang.
I hope that this guy wins his case, because these so called celebrities need to be held accountable for their stupidity. If this criminal was locked up as he should have been he would not have been on the streets to shoot Mr. Wang. If Mr. Wang does win this will open up this entire elitist crowd to even more law suites. They must be held accountable just because you can do something doesn’t mean that you should.
Sue and sue big!!!!!
(It’s the government….taxpayers will be the ones who foot the bill!!!)
