Cleaning up the damage along Los Angeles railways due to organize train heists, Gov. Gavin Newsom noted that he wasn’t unaware of the constant images of a state in disarray.

“I see what you’ve been seeing and asking myself, ‘What the hell is going on?'” Newsom told reporters assembled for the photo-op in the Southland. “We look like a Third World country.”

The organized train robberies have left not only a mess on the rail lines, but also hefty disruption within the West Coast supply chain.
