LOL. Stop the lies. The drug use in plain view? All of the new homeless people? Not enforcing laws? Keep voting D... It will always get worse.It’s a big city issue. The dems in Los Angeles don’t make it any easier for LEOs. That being said, it was a much bigger shit hole when Riorden was mayor.
Dems certainly should bear some responsibility, but so should republicans. The drug epidemic across small town America crippling families, not to mention the labor pool.Not nearly as bad as it is now. The dems continue to do nothing... Oh wait, they give out free needles....
Some responsibility? Sorry Jen, you are so full of BS..Dems certainly should bear some responsibility, but so should republicans. The drug epidemic across small town America crippling families, not to mention the labor pool.
What many people choose to ignore is the effect of technology on manufacturing and distribution. Synthetic and deadly drugs can be produced for pennies relative to more traditional drugs.
I think downtown looks a lot better as the staples center kind of re-juvenated. LANot downtown there wasn’t.
Funny, I just had the same conversation with my aunt who is in town from Iowa. She is a bleeding heart liberal. She started with the “I think that it is nothing more than what has been going on over time. We are just now hearing about it from the media.” I pointed to her and said “you might think it has been like this for decades. I KNOW that is not the case. Homelessness, crimes and physical attacked on the general public have increased exponentially over the last decade. The actions of the government have taken away the rights of the tax payers and given away to those sucking on the teat of society ” Boy did that change the conversation quickly. LOLIt is similar here in Canada. We had skid row in Vancouver for ever as I can remember, but it was mainly one location only. Bleeding hearts enabling welfare recipients to live where ever they want and mental health issues not dealt with. Only way this scene will change when these souls are gone/dead unfortunately. I remember people begging in the heart of San Francisco 25 yrs ago but the city was still clean. RodnJen is full of BS if he says things were the same 25 years ago.
