We had to suffer through all the praising of black male criminals recently. Now they think they can get away with murder. RIP Sandra❤️ TheOnlyTeacher 🙏 RIP. California and their get soft on crime social experiment. They know who he is they just haven't found him yet. I hope they catch that homeless person. Throw him in prison for the rest of his life. We don't need crazy dangerous persons in our society like that. This woman was a savior and helper to humanity. We need more people like that.

God bless her and her family DanielleGersh So sad 😞 She deserved so much better Incredibly sad. Prayers for the family Many nurses get attacked or killed by the same people we help or their family members whom cannot even pay the hospital bill but they come to our facilities treating medical staff like slaves.

Sandra, may God bless your soul, may He let your kindness to all humanity live loud, and may He bring you and your family justice in this tragedy. RIP 🙏🏻❤️💕

Justin_G0rd0n Breaks my heart. Homeless or not, innocent people are getting tired and frustrated about this type of situations. 1st.- killers of innocent people, 2nd.- thieves every where in the US and the FBI, DEA and the Congress are NOT doing their job about this situations. The Congress only wants 💵💰😲😎

🕊 Where’s the outcry for this victim, from these frauds in LA? Double standards in this country when it comes to media coverage. Gdamn shame. Just like the Petito case. What a tragedy! She's on the frontlines helping covid patients and dies from a random attack. Mental illness is REAL..😢 🥺🙏🏼🕊 heartbreaking.

May she rest in peace ,still so heart warming to me, no one should be treated this way.but she is gods special angel now.much love and prayers to her friends ,family,colleagues. 🙏🦋❤ KeepAreHoodsSafe 🙏 Were there any other victims, like black men or Hispanic men, of violent crimes besides a black woman and a white woman? How many other people were murdered on the same day as these women but were completely dismissed?

70% of Jamaica population to adopt CBDC in 5 years, prime minister saysThe Prime Minister of Jamaica is optimistic about the country's CBDC rollout. Andrew Holness has predicted that 70% of Jamaica's population will use digital JMD in the next five years No one needs this coin lol. I think that the CBDC are created so that the government can mint it for their own benefits. Otherwise, it would be easier to develop regulation for stablecoins like Tether and use it. $bscs bscstation 🔥

🙏🏼🙏🏼👍🏼 Rip sandra So sorry u had yo day because if some peace of shit human 🥺 Please Justice RIP Sandra Shells🙏🏼🙏🏼🌹😔 This is so sad and horrible! My deepest condolences to her family. She has given so much to so many of her patients, especially during COVID. ❤️ DyingVenice Way to support minorities and health care professionals, MikeBoninLA. You’re doing great [at promoting your own recall].

Prayers to her 🙏🏽❤️🙏🏽 Defunding the police is not good at all, it only benefit the law breakers. There are many good men in our police force that are restricted to do their job due to fear of bad publicity. So sad a beautiful sole who was such a positive person killed by a piece of 💩. BLOOD IS ON GASCONS HANDS AGAIN.

Los Angeles nurse dies after being attacked at bus stopA woman is dead after she was violently attacked while waiting for a bus in downtown la st week, according to the Los Angeles Police Department ( LAPD ). Dear, Unfortunately you are sleeping 24X7. There're too much Crimes & Health Issues because of Smoking, Alcohol, Drug, PORN, Premarital Sex and Extramarital affairs. Your Inner-conscience has died and you don't care about our KIDs & Youth ENJOY.. Living in Fool's paradise.. When you will realize that we are moving in the WRONG direction When will you talk about these BAD habits Most of the Crimes and Health issues are related to these bad habits of Smoking, Alcohol, Drug, PORN, Premarital Sex and Extramarital Affairs. Make America Afghanistan

When will California do something about the homeless situation? If her attacker doesn’t get the full extent of the law you might as well say we have no laws. This is why it's turned into all of our safety is at stake. God speed to our good nurse, and bless her family. Another sad story. RIP Sandra Shells with our Savior Jesus Christ.

So is this supposed to justify police harrassing, assaulting, and arresting a black man at a bus stop on false suspicion and for being black? I don’t think Sandra would be happy about it or be on the authorities’ side. Rest in Peace, Sandra Shells Get rid of the homeless NOW. All of them. 🙏🙏 God Bless..

Nurse dies days after being assaulted by man at downtown Los Angeles bus stopA nurse who was left in critical condition after being assaulted at a bus stop in downtown Los Angeles has died, officials announced Sunday. Y’all this shit needs to stop. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 I’m sure Gascon will throw the book… LMAOOOOO

Hey Gascon…wha’cha gonna do?……that’s what I thought. People need to be more fearful of getting mugged, shot, or killed than of Covid. SweetTayPie0104 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Garcetti and Gascon are responsible for this. LA voters stop being naive and stupid. This shit pisses me off 🤬 If they did arrest someone, they will let them out, thanks to people wanting to defund the police

Prayers! 🙏❤ She was an angel who helped others. A tragic loss. Prayers to her family and may she rest in peace.

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s Los Angeles-area home burglarizedLori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli’s home was burglarized in early January, a spokesperson for the couple confirmed to TODAY. Couldn’t happen to nicer people And why should I be upset that privilege people like them got burglarized? The burglar was probably just looking for evidence that Olivia Jade was a competitive rower.

Angelinos can rely on the fact that George Gascón, the incompetent County DA they all elected. will do nothing. A social worker (sarcasm) could’ve prevented this senseless murder. RIP All Californians are used to homelessness, the recent trend of random violent acts committed by transients is the alarming thing.

So heartbreaking 💔 😢 Vote out EVERY SITTING politician NOW! 😡 Is there a GoFundMe campaign for her family? I’d like to donate. 💔💔💔😢😢😢💔💔💔 And the mayor will say we need more outreach. WHERES THE 50K REWARD? LA CITY did one for the pretty WHITE girl ? Horrible story. & thank you abc7 for calling him what he is….Homeless.

This is horrendous. ericgarcetti GeorgeGascon God bless her Soul. May we get Justice for Ms.Shells. WTH!!! Rip 💜thank you for your service ☹️ Have they arrested a suspect yet? 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 This is so sad. Very very sad. 🙏😞⛪ RIP Heartbreaking 💔 Rest in peace, Sandra🙏🏻

Rest In Heaven, Nurse Sandra💗🙏🏽 Terrible. RIP Beautiful 🙏🏽 Very sad!! This should not have happened 😞😞😞 “For 38 years, Sandra Shells cared for patients at LAC+USC Medical Center, and she was on her way to do just that shortly after 5 a.m. on Jan. 13” When she was attacked by a POS coward! RIPSandraShells

the main reason so many homeless are now committing murder is because it is the ONLY crime that will provide a roof over their head now... drugs, stealing, assault, urination/ defecation, child molestation- all cited & released- murder insures a place to sleep. JusticeFailure That’s so sad Nobody is safe so many mentally ill homeless ppl roaming the city attacking others may nurse shells rest 🤍🙏🏿

Should be quick and inexpensive capital punishment It’s not just the failure in mental health services; it’s a failure in the justice system that allows people with long criminal histories to be allowed to be on the streets. They refuse mental health help but if you arrest and then provide mental health help, it benefits all.

😥

Thank you LAPDChiefMoore for emphasizing the deplorable state of mental health care in LA (and the rest of the country). The lack of accessible, affordable mental health care is a catastrophe that we cannot police our way out of. My prayers are with her and her family’s

LAPD Chief Michel Moore tweeted : "A tragic and senseless murder directly tied to the failure of this Nation's mental health resources. We can and must do better. This victim lived her life for others. We are falling short." "I just think that there's a lot of people out there that are homeless that really need help. They need to be seen, and evaluated," said Anderson. The hospital where Shells worked said in a statement: "Sandra Shells will forever be remembered for her compassionate care and unmatched dedication to her patients and her community throughout her 38-year career at LAC+USC. Sandra worked tirelessly and selflessly to keep her patients safe and healthy and will always be remembered as a 'kind, compassionate and giving nurse' with a 'helpful and thoughtful nature' who was a favorite amongst colleagues and patients. There will never be enough words to express our gratitude for her tremendous work and dedication." "She has a lemon tree in the back. She would give people lemons. Just a very mild-mannered easy going nice person," added Anderson."You couldn't meet anybody nicer than Sandy. When I think about it, it breaks my heart. I'm having a hard time with this." Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger has called for a full investigation into this attack and Supervisor Hilda Solis, who chairs L.A. Metro's Board of Directors is pushing for an enhanced safety plan for riders and staff.
