    Wow! I was there at Cypress Park when this all went down. We were having a birthday party in the park when all the drama unfolded. That’s LA.

  2. The man let him self be taken in but the cops still released the dogs on him. He recieved bites on the arm but did not recieve stitches only a bandade even though the bites were severe.

  3. Who gives a crap if all he got was a band aid . This pos was carrying a gun at a rec center where kids play and innocent people were having a birthday party.
