  1. But let’s not forget the real problem, there are art galleries in Boyle heights now!

    • That was exactly my thought!

      Here we have a neighborhood where weekly shootings and murder are the norm and the routine headline for the neighborhood revolves around gentrification of the neighborhood, perpetuated by the LA Times (thank you Eastsider for actually reporting this NEWS). Why isn’t the neighborhood marching againt this violence? Why isn’t there even 1/10th the public outrage for the death of human life? Perhaps this just exposes their selfish, hypocritical world view…

  2. RIP to the person killed. Waiting now for the fake news anti-art crew, the non-native fake saviors of Boyle Heights, to accuse the gallerists of having blood on their hands.

  3. Not a peep about this tragedy on Defend Boyle Heights’ Facebook page. Disturbing.

  4. Tonight we march against all violence August 1, 6 pm meet at First and Chicago street . Stop criminal violence stop police killings of lkcal youth.
