Angry Citizens Force City Clowncil To Abandon Sidewalk Settlement

The City Clowncil got the message loud and clear from L.A.'s no-longer-silent majority today: don't you dare surrender our sidewalks to drunks, drug addicts, prostitutes and the mentally ill. Clowncil Members walked away from their settlement agreement with the ACLU, and opted instead, after having been hit upside the head with the political equivalent of a 2 x 4, to defend the City's anti-loitering laws in the Court of Appeals.

That L.A.'s working, taxpaying citizens had to take time out of their busy day to educate the Clowncil on this issue is outrageous. As a trial attorney, I can tell you that the City's attorneys would never have negotiated that deal in the first place without a "green light" from the client, i.e., the Mayor and City Clowncil.

Those of us who could not make it to the Clowncil today owe a debt of gratitude to those who spoke out. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Now, about the Mayor's vacation to England and the Far East. . . . No, don't even get me started. We've got people living on sidewalks, he's just taken over the schools, and what does he do? Goes to Manchester, England? Is this a re-make of "Hair?" And the Far East? Is he going to try to get Pandas, the way Hahn did, and instead come back with another multimillion-dollar monkey rental agreement? Or is this just another career politician all-expense-paid vacation, plus "international" photo-ops for his pitch to become Hillary's running-mate?

Prepare your escape pods, people.

I think you got it wrong. Of course this is your perspective, so that is ok, but....

What we are saying is we do not want to abandon our streets to lawlessness. And sanction a containment zone.

The Dealers and the criminals.

Jose Huizar makes good points though. He understnads you have to get to the root of the problem , but he also kows he up for reelection and understands if he supports the appeal , boyle heights will not be happy for fear of the homeless crossing the river. If the city is allowed to enforce 41.18 d , no sleeping , lying or sitting on the sidewalk.

There were plans already being made, hang out at venice beach all day and then come down to skid row and party at night if the settlement was agreed to.

Yup, clowncil was jammed packed today. Huizar was pissed cause he told the clowncil members they probably had no idea what they just voted for. TRUE. Then he clarified and it still is confusing. The positive is LAPD can go after the criminals but have to stop passed 9pm. We all know though the drug dealers, gang bangers, prostitutes etc. will go there at time. Good thing the city will still fight their appeal thanks to the idiots ALCU. I believe though they will only enforce for 90 days to see how it works out. I guarantee homeless from all over the US are making their way to LA.

Ok I'm confused. Didn't CLOWNCIL VOTE YES in favor of ACLU settlement? I think they did Walter.

The TV news report I saw was that the Clowncil reversed course and voted AGAINST the settlement AFTER the angry public spoke out.

I believe the TV reporters got it right insofar as a woman identified as an ACLU spokesperson was angry because she said she didn't get a chance to explain the settlement, and she said the City was breaking its agreement -- which is consistent with the report that the Council voted today to reject the deal its lawyers had made with the ACLU.

So, summing up: yesterday, Council agreed to settlement; today, Council rejected settlement.

But I wasn't there. I only saw the report on TV a few minutes ago.

Go see the panhanding on Soto and Olympic. Homeless shanties under the freeways near Soto and Eight. underpass on Soto and Marengo. Tents are popping up along wall next to metrolink in Ramona Gardens. Drugs, Drugs, and more Drugs are the root of the problem. Yet, these people know how to play the "System". They get their "G.R.", "Food Stamps" and wash cars for the "fix". We have forgotten a term called "SOCIAL DARWINISM". These people need to make the choice to get help or move on.

Did you hear the mayor speaking about his int'l jaunts, saying that he believes in el-a & that is going to "schlep" around these countries. Totally inarticulate/embarrassing (and I doubt Yiddish).

Hospital joins long line of ER closures in December

Critics say the loss of Inglewood's Centinela Freeman's Memorial facilities will burden other busy emergency facilities in the area. It is the 10th emergency room closure since 2003.

7:25 PM Troll with the videotape

Don't answer unless you are prepared to name the troll. No one cares who is standing with Zuma The ghost of Stalin could have wandered over there. Don't forget this is Walter Moore, the same guy Troll tried to call out for blogging on a "for profit" website. If he hasn't figured out how rediculous the Troll is, no one has.

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen (Bows low and removes hat with flourish).

For the record, I was not standing behind Ms. Ripston. I was standing behind Farmer MacGregor, who was standing next to Peter and Benjamin.

Alas, I can't take credit for that. Methinks it was the Mayor's Office Boy who has been known to get the cream for free as opposed to purchasing the cow.

I heard Sr.Cedillo is learning CPR to help compensate for all the ER closures around LA. If you get a piece of ham or something lodged in your throat this holiday season, head over to his place for medical treatment.

P.S. If you can't make it to Cedillo in time, have your loved ones Google "heimlich maneuver."

P.P.S. I'm still working hard trying to get you a la carte cable programming. It shouldn't be long!
