  1. Rash of shootings in a half square mile in Boyle Hieghts withing the last few months. What is the cause of the rash of shootings? Are they related? What can be done to prevent the increase of murder?
    Within the last few months people have been getting shot increasingle two shot yesterday on 900 Bernal. A few weeks ago a man shot on Siskiyou. A month ago a man was shot by police on Lorena. Previous to that a man was shot on Lorena. This is not normal. These attempt murders and murders necessitate resources and measures to keep the general public of senior citizens, home owners, and kids safe. A school is nearby.

    • The answer is encouraging people to focus on family and education. The uneducated perpetually-dependent population of east LA will continue this spiral down until they reverse their attitude towards education and having families at an ages where they are not equipped financially and emotionally to give the children a decent chance of success. Trying to police a culture from bad behavior might work for a short time but the long term solution must come from within the culture.

      • Six people shot in the last two months. Two dead. In an area of a half a mile, basically a block. The rhetoric is the community has to get involved and the community scared of retaliation. This is a problem of murder. This should not be the norm. The community needs help before more shootings take more lives. Six in two months should be a clue something is drastically wrong.
