  1. Good work LAPD. Since the criminal justice system cannot seem to keep this guy in jail where he belongs perhaps he could be transported directly to Jerry Brown’s home where the governor, who believes in the ability of people to change, could house him.

  2. Gentrify! – Gentrify! – Gentrify! Out with the old, in with the new! Let’s make these neighborhoods civilized where residence respect the law and each other.*

    *If you are already civilized and respect your fellow neighbors and the law, this doesn’t apply to you so calm down.
