This is pure snark, morgue humor, cop humor, newsroom
humor…whatever you want to call it, so don’t send me hate mail, and
besides, it ties into what I’m going to say.
These damn little gangsters better take sharpshooting practice so they hit their “mark” and not innocent bystanders.
For the sake of public relations and political correctness, cops
from the guys on the street all the way up the ranks, police will say
they don’t want to see any life taken, not even a gang banger’s.
The truth is — and I know because when I was a police reporter I
heard them say it — they don’t give a rat’s ass when one banger offs
I don’t care either. If they want to make war on each other, more
power to them. As far as I’m concerned they can be rounded up, locked
in the Coliseum and have at it.
Death to the finish just like the good ol’ days in Roma. The city can even sell tickets to sweeten the coffers.
But their right to have their little turf wars ends at our right to
walk our streets safely, or have our children play without fear in
their own front yards or even in their own living rooms.
The thought of some people having to sleep in their bathtubs so they’re alive to wake up in the morning is chilling.
It’s outrageous. It goes beyond the pale. There isn’t a word in my thesaurus to describe how horridly awful this situation is.
We wring our hands and moan about all the death and killing of innocents in Iraq, but we’re living in Iraq West.
We may not be dodging IED or grenades, but we are dodging bullets, and who’s to say that IEDs won’t be next.
The killing of children or mothers trying to stop taggers rates
banner headline, not be just another headline…not like just another
The truth is, and it’s a very harsh, ugly truth — nothing will be
done about the gangs until they invade rich, white neighborhoods.
Only when Sadie Gotrocks’ nanny takes Roscoe Hayvenhurst Gotrocks,
V, for a stroller ride through the neighborhood and they get
“drive-byed” will real action against gangs happen.
Money talks, poverty dies a lonely death in the streets.
A perfect example is the press release I got yesterday from the
swaggart, braggart, who only does meaningless look good, feel good
things, West Valley Councilman Dennis Zine. Here’s his press release:
Councilman Zine Convenes
Los Angeles Regional Paparazzi Task Force
A regional task force on paparazzi will convene to hear testimony
Thursday, July 31st, 2008
Los Angeles City Hall
200 N. Spring Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012
Councilman Dennis P. Zine
Paparazzi are becoming increasingly aggressive in their tactics,
Why is this more important than going after the gangs? Because famous
rich people, who can afford their own security are demanding it.
I don’t know the statistics, but the paparazzi can’t affect more
than 1/10,000 of L.A.’s population, where gangs affect hundreds of
neighborhood and thousands of people.
But who’s getting a task force? The rich and famous.
We’re not rich. We’re not famous, but we do own the ballot box. If
the powers that be don’t listen to our pleas maybe they’ll listen to
our votes when we vote them out of office.
It’s time they started working for us…the people who pay their salaries.
