  1. I counted eight LAPD squad cars with lights and sirens on Alvarado, crossing Kent and heading north, about 5:25 pm. There were two circling, than hovering, helicopters.

    Almost the only time we see police cars in our neighborhood is when they are passing through. I wish we had neighborhood patrols on a regular basis.

  2. My scumbag neighbors from CYS oh well you wont be missed kiddos.
