Yes, one wants to make sure they can effective continue to %^&* the taxpayers in ^&* withoutRead More any meddling. Just like the rest of LA City employees....Can we go bankrupt yet? The only city services that seem to still work effectively is enriching these public union slugs on the taxpayers backs

THE LAW IS WRONG! IT WON'T BE THE FIRT TIME THAT LAWMAKERS HAVE WRITTEN AN UNNCONSTITUTIONAL LAW.Read More APPARENTLY THEY FORGOT ABOUT FREE SPEECH UNDER THE FIRST AMENDEMENT.

No Tears but they probably hit an establishment kicking back to democrats. How many murders andRead More molesters get much less???

You ignorant greedy morons at Patch. Don't you realize how disturbing it is to have your video adsRead More suddenly start on their own, suddenly blasting users with totally unexpected noise? Unsubscribing.

The previous judges were Democrats.
Attorneys for Marlene Pinnock, the woman seen in a video being punched by a CHP officer, filed a lawsuit today. Patch file photo.

The CHP Officer clearly needs anger management classes, probably should be tested for steroid use,Read More suspended without pay and face possible termination. Thank God for cell phone videos ... Hard for CHP to justify such force. Honey, you deserve every penny coming to you and then some! Sadly, though, NOT ONE onlooker went to the victims defense to pull the Officer off of her :(

When a person assaults another person they need to be arrested. He may have mental health issues butRead More like everyone else with mental health issues need need to be arrested and punished for his CRIME.

Who are they kidding. It is apparent that they were not living in their home. They wanted theRead More political career, but were also they type that would not bring them self down to that level of living standards. I really do not remember reading any great accomplishments made by either the husband or wife. They should watch the Cesar Chavez movie and see wha type of political responsibilities they should of lived up to. If he was in office to make life better for the people in the Pacomia/San Fernando Valley than he should of been in their with them making is home and area better. They are both phonies. Not at all deserving to be considered outstanding americans.

Fact: People are wrongfully convicted. Even 1 innocent person wrongfully executed is too much, theRead More fact that you are ok with that says a lot about how little you actually have thought about this. How many bad guys do we need to kill to make it ok to execute 1 innocent man? 100 to 1? 20 to 1? 1 to 1? If you think that death is the only effective deterrent to crime that matters then are also very confused. Do you really think that it is pointless to put anyone in prison, probation, or fine them, since death is the only deterrent that matters? I encourage you to actually think about your position and how you arrived at that. Killing out of emotion (revenge) in no way makes murder ok. Killing in revenge is the ultimate sign of weakness. It takes strength to hold your rage and remain a civil thinking person. I couldn't care less about revenge and consequences. The criminal justice system is about the safety of our citizens, not vengeance. Locking someone up for life is enough because it removes a killer from his potential victims. It also costs the tax payers less money than killing them. Being in favor of a policy of executing people is also incompatible with belief in Christ, and when 70% of this nation claims to be Christian it should give you a good idea how many are full of shit that this is even a debate. Bottom line: No, your immature and selfish desire to kill people does not make it ok. It does not make us safer. It solves nothing. It wastes more tax dollars, and we have and will again execute innocent people because juries and judges are composed of people, and people are fallible. If you are ok with all that you should be locked away from the rest of society where you can do no harm. Sorry for the rant, long day and I keep seeing this subject brought up everywhere I look due to the court's decision. Thank you all for letting me get this out of my system =)

I feel sorry for the cruel and unusual suffering of the families who wait 20 + years for theirRead More murderer's sentence to be carried out.
Steve M July 20, 2014 at 12:15 pm
They didn't waste much time with Timothy McVeigh who killed 144 people including children but oneRead More official said that he's getting a free ticket out of this world with hardly anytime in prison.

"City Attorney Mike Feuer said the entire operation violates Proposition D, which limits theRead More number of legal dispensaries allowed in the city, and is an unauthorized and unpermitted use of the property on Esperanza Street. He also claims the operation creates a public nuisance due to traffic and large crowds, creating safety hazards and blocking access to nearby properties." Not that I would ever attend, and the anti-Prop D argument will probably be found valid, but I just hate LA's continued embrace of double-standards by our paid employees; so, a small soliloquy is in order-- "Weekly yard & sidewalk & easement & vacant lot Used Crap Sales, and industrious Shade Tree mechanics cluttering up the front yards & working past midnight, crowing roosters at 3 AM, and illegal garage & storage shed conversions aside, let me address this one glaring oversight I noticed in zoning laws. All those ubiquitous Taco Trucks parked on the side of the road every 1/4 mile with their tables and chairs blocking the sidewalk for pedestrian & bike traffic. I'm sure they're in complete compliance with the law; especially the one utilizing Discount Tire's parking lot at Sherman Way & Laurel Canyon after dark-- with the cabanas, tables, portable lights & scores of famished people eating Roach Coach slop-- and not an Andy Gump in sight. "Wash our hands? We don't need no stinking washed hands!" Yet, law-abiding citizens know those retail food operations are in complete compliance with business codes, zoning ordinances, health codes, business taxes; and, they do not create a traffic hazard, disrupt the neighborhood with their flashing lights & blaring Ranchero music, or draw an unsavory clientele looking for post-fandango borracho barocho. But a Farmer's Market for a naturally growing plant is deemed a nuisance, unlawful, and harmful to ALL Angelinos. Please...anyone have a spare Saint's ankle bone? I have a dire need for salvation from persecution for a personal belief and physical journey as I slowly migrate away from fermented wheat, yeast & hops in a responsible manner. But hey, as long as the tax-dodging plebeians can gorge themselves on lard & cheap cuts of meat while swilling warm GMO corn syrup laced Budweiser while imbibing pesticide & miticide treated bunk Mexican Cartel Skunk Weed--cough...cough...courtesy of the Zeta Cartel and delivered by Vato street-side-- except that Shake-filled Cartel U-Haul just popped in Bakersfield-- who can judge? Why me, of course! What a bunch of hypocrites. Please with my blessing continue forward towards obesity, diabetes, alcoholism, and lung cancer loyal plebes-- and remember Special Order 90-32-A(1)-- salted meat and sugared vino for all...." Proceed to crucify.
Michael Linda Gerzen July 20, 2014 at 08:23 pm
Well "Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne O'Donnell" Judge Judy look-a-like this is aRead More free market society & it promotes competition & that is good for the medical need. So you impeded the peoples wishes & the design of the law without authority. As for Mike Feuer & his Potty mouth I think both of you need to be impeached.
Buster July 21, 2014 at 08:08 pm
Mike Feuer is an ignorant dumb ass.... Hopefully this will serve to end his political career.

By the way tyler, whatever was the outcome of the accident you had involving the driver that hit you and had no insurance or driver's license??

LeeRep July 13, 2014 at 03:52 pm
Sorry Mr. Wentz I am partially blind so errors occur... no need to be rude. By the way yourRead More prejudice is embarrassing.
Frank Estrada July 13, 2014 at 05:35 pm
Agree with D. Jude...Police greed.... milk the taxpayers of more and more..Best thing to do is toRead More fire those greedy corrupt POS and hire new police that arent arrogant untrained POS who wont shoot to kill to save their asses first.......Ones that wont take fraudulently take disability just before retirement to keep thier pensions untaxable...I know of police motorcycle cops making close to $200k a year..own several side businesses and are knee deep in corruption.....Of course pandering to illegals and a rotating criminal justice sytems insures and continued game of cops and robbers, keeps the cops in demand and only allows more mayhem in a city that needs mayhem to hide all the theft to the taxpayers by public union purchased city government officials and its employees....LA city needs to be broken up NOW!!!

I don't know Allan, that guy looks pretty white to me. I think it's safe to say that we can blameRead More white people for this.

Okay, how about white Israelis

Let's wait and see if they do give more detailed info.

Guess the rest of L.A. is doing great crime wise. ..or is someone cooking the books..maybe we allRead More should move out of Hollywood, Garcetti's old council district that he has left in an on going violent crime shambles, before we get shot, knifed, or raped, to all these other 'safe' places. Bring on more of his beloved nightclubs, cheap shot bars, density, glass and steel skyscrapers...more more more.. bring in the party buses to Hollywood, the big party place (this is his revitalized 'economic development'), and more drunken shootouts, guaranteed. He has created his west coast version of Times Square, before revitalization.. and without the Broadway Theaters, with the help of the irresponsible C.I.M., BID, and Hollywood Chamber..They are destroying Hollywood..none of them actually live here.. Think of what he can, and will do with the rest of L.A! His crime stats are as 'fatally flawed' as was his false population data to justify his illegal higher density (to accommodate his developer funder's projects), Hollywood Community Plan, that a judge threw out calling his numbers..'fatally flawed' and 'wishful thinking' Why would anyone believe anything he has to say about any data or stats at this point? About anything for that matter.

We like illegals in L.A. After all, laws are made to be broken...
Willie Lump July 8, 2014 at 11:41 am
What's a matter, Garcetti? Did I.C.E. detain your gardener or nanny? If L.A. refuses to complyRead More with Federal law, the Federal government should withhold Federal funds from L.A. Only fair and I'm sure the illegals and their supporters will joyfully pay for the city and county services...
TJ Hand July 11, 2014 at 01:31 am
LOL... You are the mayor, are you not? Immigrants are what makes the US the US of A. How can youRead More decide what is best for 8 million people? We all know that your a SHOW PONY and a hand puppet... Comes with the job.... At least try and act like you are doing your job... Are you going to be the mayor who has brown dead grass in your yard? Proudly drives in a dirty car?
