  1. So the homeless camps actually do have a murder to their credit now, as I have long suspected since April. Repeated contacts to the city have resulted in no action nor communication.

    Voters remember this inaction by the city when election time comes around. I have personally contacted the Mayors office, local city council and the Police. The police are the only ones who have gotten back to me saying the city has there hands tied.
    Garcetti, Huizar , Cedillo remember this.

  2. I’m not surprised they found him down by the river. I am sure there are homeless folks living in a Highland Park with mental issues and who are just down on their luck, but I’m also sure there are many with severe drug problems and criminal histories. I’ve encountered several homeless folks livibg in Debs Park who leave their drug paraphernalia behind and I am not talking pot here. There’s some hardcore drug dealing going on near Fig and 52 with some of the homeless folks. Where there’s meth, crack, heroin,, there’s going to be crime.
