Raid on Boyle Heights duplex uncovered 14 kilos of cocaine, 50 pounds of marijuana, and $300,000 stashed alongside children's toys, police say.

A Boyle Heights day-care facility also housed a large cache of drugs, weapons and money, Los Angeles police said Wednesday.

That does not look like $300,000 on the table; they better search the cops on the scene. A cop may have pocketed some money to move to Iowa.

Is that a beanie and dark sunglasses under the table?

John & Ken KFI have done a lot of publicity on Weiss Ass moron. IF nothing else they have at least let millions of listeners know what a bunch of bastards we have representing the city.

Jack Weiss Recall StumblesWestsiders turn an effort to oust a councilman into amateur hour.....MAYBE IT’S THE FACT that in modern times the citizens of Los Angeles have never managed to recall an unpopular City Council member, from controversial Art Snyder in the 1970s to felonious coke addict Mike Hernandez in 1998. Or maybe it’s because the kind of civic activism that ousted corrupt 1930s L.A. Mayor Frank L. Shaw, the first mayor recalled in U.S. history, is dead. Or maybe it’s because there’s more than enough hubris in the city’s richest enclave — Los Angeles Council District 5, encompassing Westwood, Bel Air and environs — to fuel pie-in-the-sky initiatives driven by ego, not reality.

The nature of the assault on Weiss — considered by some inside City Hall to be the most arrogant and disliked council member since lawyer Mike Feuer (also of District 5) — makes Larry Levine, Weiss’s longtime political consultant, question whether the committee even has 10,000 signatures.

If you like this, you will LOVE the gang and drug "intervention" centers.

Jack is the only CM with the bearing, education and breadth of national and international first-hand understanding of politics and issues, to be able to network on L A's behalf at the highest levels. He's also a bridge between the Latino and white communities. If L A were truly an international city as it aspires to be and not run by provincials more interested in grandstanding over Reggie the Alligator and other local issues (which are important, but don't make for a cohesive and high-profile city), more people would see that. His concern with public safety on all levels is part of overcoming the provincial, me- and my district only, view.

Enough do, that the recall effort is indeed amateur hour, untainted by anyone who knows what they're doing in politics or who has an eye on the future of L A. ALL of the projects he's been involved with have been singled out by national associations of architects and business journals as "dream team" models for the nation. Kudos to him for staying true to his vision despite all this nasty sniping.

I guess we could go back to when we were a laughinstock of ugly minimalls, with pockets of suburbia hiding from the blight. We can become a third-world city with ugly sprawl in every district. Or, we can become a well-planned, clean and futuristic city which still preserves our pockets of single- family homes. That's my model and what the city is finally trying to achieve on a unified basis. Why this hasn't been attempted before, is a disgrace -- funny how longtime pols who've been around forever are now critical of the planning dept., when these difficult discussions are finally happening for real.

I am personally very sensitive to the issue of haves-vs.-havenots, driving out the marginal and middle class -- but that's been happening for decades, ever since busing drove the middle class to the west valleys and Pasadena. If anything, intelligently planned urbanization is bringing these people back for the amenities they lack out there.

We need taxes, and many on the Council and city planners are trying to find a way to turn these developments, especially downtown, to the benefit of the whole city. There are valid questions being raised about HOW that is done, but those wanting to stop-the-world-I-want-to-get-off, haven't helped.

Anytime anyone writes in favor of anyone, he's accused of being Chief Parker whoever he was, but I've been an active HOA member who is sick of many of my colleagues. A hostile attitude that just leads to our being more ignored. The real hubris is people who think because they head an HOA, they can diss and blow off the CM and city and win.

This bust is in Boyle Heights. Doesn't ELA want to secede, anyway? Why don't they? Then the Valley will have less reason to want to, let's keep them instead.

I think now that the gang banging cholo mayor is sinking lower and lower every week the Valley can be successful in succeeding. I don't know any area in the city anymore where the cholo mayor is welcomed like the so called Rock Star they say he used to be. Everywhere he appears now insiders at city hall says he has his people calling everyone they know to be there and they will get something for their efforts. Guess the truth of no one showing up would kill his huge ego between those huge ears. ELA hates him, Westside thinks he panders to illegals, South La hates him because they know he panders to illegals who have taken over their community and the Valley definitely hates him because they thought he was somewhat educated but have learned "you can take the boy out of the Barrio, but you can't take the Barrio out of the boy." Yup Antonio

If you investigate further into licensed home day care providers, you will find the trail of corruption goes to the State level. They are "licensed" by the state, received county money under the Gain Program, and a city business license. These "day care" providers received at best minimal training. Many of their clients are sent by these companies who are on welfare. Often they make deals with "clients" who don't need child care and agree to split the money with the day care provider receives from the county. I believe they term used is "double dipping". I'm told by someone who works for the county, there is so much fraud associated with the daycare provider program, it amounts to MILLIONS. I'm told, these "in home daycare centers" bring in hundred(s) of thousands of our taxpayers money into their pockets.
