Bob Lee, the founder of Cash App, was just stabbed to death in San Francisco, California, ABC News reports. He was 43.
The stabbing took place in downtown San Francisco - in the 300-block of Main Street - on Tuesday at around 2:30 a.m.
The circumstances of the stabbing are still being investigated. Thus far, it is being reported as a random act, and police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect.
But, new surveillance footage sheds light on what happened after the stabbing. The footage, reportedly, shows Lee - with stab wounds to his chest - desperately going around trying to get assistance.
The local ABC affiliate reports:
The I-Team was told the 43-year-old tech executive was looking for help and stumbled in front of Portside, a nearby apartment building near the Bay Bridge. Sources said Lee was holding his side with one hand and using his phone with the other before falling to his knees. A trail of blood covered both sidewalks. The I-Team was told video shows Lee was then able to get up and walk toward a police car that arrived on scene.
Lee did end up receiving emergency assistance, but it was too late. He ended up dying at the scene.
The unfortunate fact is that this sort of conduct is not uncommon in San Francisco, where entrenched Democratic leadership has implemented some of the most "progressive," anti-law enforcement policies in the nation.
Elon Musk is among those with personal knowledge of this fact. Here's his response to Lee's death:
Very sorry to hear that. Many people I know have been severely assaulted. Violent crime in SF is horrific and even if attackers are caught, they are often released immediately. Is the city taking stronger action to incarcerate repeat violent offenders @BrookeJenkinsSF?
Brooke Jenkins (D) is San Francisco's district attorney, and she claims to be "dedicated to criminal justice reform and public safety."
Following Lee's death, Jenkins extended her "sincerest condolences" to Lee's loved ones and claimed that San Francisco does not "tolerate these horrific acts of violence."
Jenkins went on to try to defend herself in several subsequent tweets.
"Protecting public safety & holding violent/repeat offenders accountable is a top priority for my administration," she claimed.
In a subsequent message, Jenkins further claimed that "no one who commits a violent crime or who's a repeat offender are [sic] receiving overly lenient plea deals."
Jenkins, however, did not present any facts to back this up.
