  1. I assumed it as gang related, seeing how it happened in the Avenues, but those guys look like wino paisas.

      Ahhhshuttup! You assumed because your a blabber mouth, using these threads to crap on select topics, (gang violence , duh!) we all know your breath stinks, and very little spine behind those soiled finger tips of yours. If you don’t know already, your diarea mouth is also fueling a reaction from the young Vatos in the surrounding Parks ie HLP, EP, CYP, GLP, LCP, you get the picture. I’m being realistc, everyone reads ESLA blog, especially the locals. If you lived in another demographic, I assume you would be hiding behind your computer stinking up issues involving other working class warfare, whites, blacks, natives. Yah sissy, I challenge your ass to a pool game! Slay you with my stick at the short stop. Come one, come all, all of you stinkers on this thread, tomorrow. I’ll be rocking a Blue Jay ball cap over my LA one due the post season shame. Tomorrow 5:30 I’m buying stinky.

      • Yawn…….

        • Bore Me With Your Accomplishments

          Something tells me you’re a troll and love getting a reaction out of people…ahahahhaha what a parasite…this is golden

          Trolls hide behind the keys of their handheld devices. Unlike so-called eastsidearts, who doesn’t have a line or shape to prove he has a creative finger. No, no, no, I can talk the talk and walk the walk with the greatest intentions to have a friendly game of pool and debate over a beer. Just stop by the Short Stop in the flesh. The fact that crybabies, come to the ESLA to stinkup and bad mouth the creative efforts of local artists is laughable. The fact that these losers bad mouth simple off -the-cuff memorials to the is cowardly and just as spineless as the taggers in the neighborhood.

  2. Didn’t they say there were between 20 and 30? More like 40 and 50…losers! I hope they get them.

  3. Donald Trump supporters are going to be all over this one. These guys would be too drunk to climb over a wall.

      Short Stop, 6:30 pm pool game, sissy la-la

      • 6.30 pm is too early for people with careers. Keep collecting those cans and cardboard boxes bottom feeder.

        • Tony the Main Spoon

          Aww come on! Don’t make excuses scardy cat, you know all old man Prius drivers get home by 6 and besides most people have the day off today . . . So do you I bet. Show up old man, let’s have a cold ones and get served on the fine green felt table. Your petty “can” jabs don’t even matter hahaha ya lame. 6:30!

          • Dude anybody who works in entertainment is at work until at least 7 if not much later and certainly does not get veterans day off. And yes, we are the “creative class” who can afford to buy houses here while you’re at a bar at 5pm on a Wednesday.

          • Tony the Main Spoon

            Dude, I also get paid to be creative, and I do own my home. But that’s not important. If you and Prius Driver carpool, lets meet at 7:30, Monday. Why all of the excuses? I like to get home early from my profession so I can cruise in my classic cars aside from playing pool with the locals in EP, from time to time. Creative class?- that’s new. I like that . . .

  4. glassell park whitey

    suspect one looks white? no – the #2 guy looks like my landscaper…. if the weapon was a spade i’m calling the ti line…

  5. So is this the argument for or against so called gentrification? Perhaps we desire these neighbors over those helping to improve the neighborhood? Nothing to do with race, just character.

    • Tony the Main Spoon

      Nope, the integrity of all people in this area is at hand. These old, good for nothing, foul mouth instigators are ripping on the dead and comparing killers to everyday people.

      • Anti-gentrification boneheads love crime violence and trash and graffiti because they think it scares away classy people and keeps their rents low.

  6. turns out stabber was white, fyi

    • doesn’t matter. white stabbing = white trash that needs to be booted out via gentrification along with any other dirtbag doing pointless violence
