    46 times through the jail's revolvi n g door with a s l a p on the wrist. He was probably emboldened by all the leniency. And they're releasi n g more of them to the streets soon in huge numbers. Our system is crumbl i n g and the citizens are goi n g to take the brunt of this….sad

    Why was this person even on the streets, with a arrest record and reputation as printed? Does it always take a death of a innocent victim, before the authorities act? This is almost beyond belief. Sad that he wasn't in a place where he could receive help and be monitored.

In recent months, when asked in other cities I travel to, when asked where I am from, I no longer say Los Angeles..!! Rather I say from California..!! My 12 y.o. nephew wonders why there is no sillohette of ahand gun or pot leaf on the state flag.??
