Metro, East, by Northeast Missives at Mid-Day

Quick missives for your lunch time reviewing.

Hundreds of local, state, and federal law enforcement officials descended on the Drew Street enclave of the Avenues Gang. With 10 SWAT Teams in tow, search warrants and arrests were made in this crackdown on this infamous clique of the Avenues Gang. A community meeting is schedule for this evening at Glassell Park Community Center.
Judge sides with City and ACLU regarding Special Order 40 lawsuit. Celeste at Witness L.A. has her take. (Caution!! Beware of Jackie Goldberg in picture.)

In Sacramento, legislation by State Senator Gloria Romero that would open personal files of Police Officers to the public went down to defeat in the Assembly's Public Safety Committee when three democrats (with common sense) Jose Solorio, Hector De La Torre and Anthony Portantino voted to abstain.

Tim Sands, president of the Police Protective League, which represents 9,300 LAPD rank-and-file officers, said he was pleased that "this bad piece of legislation was stopped." He reiterated the union's stance that the department's discipline system allows sufficient civilian oversight. The league launched a radio campaign that was highly critical of the proposed law, and Sands, in a recent interview, accused Romero of throwing a "legislative temper tantrum."

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa who supported Romero's efforts was "outrage" with the results.

More Villaraigosa, announced his support of a half-cent sale tax hike to pay for transit and traffic projects. He joins his friend David Fleming and the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce who forgot about market based solutions to fund these types of projects.

Hundreds turned out last night at Lincoln Park in CD 1 to discuss Hillside Development. Most were on the side of opposing rampant development favored by the likes of Councilman Ed "Density" Reyes and the "COUNCILMAN LAST SEEN AS JOSE HUIZAR". No wonder why neither were seen despite the turnout.
........and this from the LA Weekly aka "WEEKLY OF RECORD".
By Christine Pelisek
The Mayor's Office is denying to the Weekly reports on other local websites that he has a long-concealed tattoo, reading “Born To Raise Hell.” Antonio got slammed on Tuesday by the Mayor Sam blog over a controversy boiling over in the Los Angeles Fire Department, first reported right here, in which firefighters are being ordered to wear long sleeves or even bandages to cover their tattoos.
After the Daily News wrote about the controversy on Tuesday, Mayor Sam went to town slamming the LAFD’s “no show” tattoo policy, then wrote:
"And it's amazing to consider, when we have a mayor who reportedly never is seen without his shirt off nor wearing short sleeves because he sports gang tattoos from his youth."
Gang tattoos? If only! The allegation stems from a website called Bruin Alumni Association, which insists the
mayor got his tattoo while a radical student at UCLA.
But nah, says Antonio's office. The mayor doesn’t sport a tattoo now. However, his office wasn't sure whether he had one before. Who knows what the real deal is here, so please weigh in if you know.
Mirthala can settle this...........

Extremely fitting that you'd run a photo of Mayor Tony looking somewhat distressed and then your header that the hammer had fallen on the Avenues gang. Let me supply a caption: "My friends today I have sad news to convey. Agencies of the Federal Government have usurped their jurisdiction and arrested a fine group of individuals right there on Drew St. I'm mortified, as should you be, huh? huh? Come on , mortify with me, huh? huh?

Up-date, the mayor previously had a tatoo that read born to raise hell. the tatoo was removed to avoid looking like a cholo.

"Those arrested are being processed in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium, Pullen said, "Just because of the volume." They will later be transported to the federal detention center downtown."

LET'S see a show of hands. Who agrees that instead of being transported downtown, these scumbags should be shot in the Dodger Stadium parking lot and dumped in a mass grave?

You may have some beefs with Huizar and Reyes over developments in their CD parts of town, but the deal in Lincoln Heights last night shouldn't be part of that.

It was Vilaraigosa, while CD14's rep on City Council, who fouled up the hillsides development process that this led into. Huizar's staff (such as they are) has been trying to fix the mess since they took over.

Give them a bit of credit. There will be plenty of shit to blame on them tomorrow.

The boondoggle that still has that zoning and planning step being worked out after nearly 3 years was a pure, un-adulterer-ated AV-staff screwup, led by the late Lisa Sarno who's now moved on the smaller and less harmful things and has still never met a tree she could actually track the planting of - all ONE MILLION of them.

2:17, we don't need to shoot them in Dodger Stadium - just give them a one-way half-price ticket in the cargo hold of a bomber flying south over the ocean. Halfway there, open up the bomb bay doors, and let 'em drop... the sharks will have a feast.

Villar is signing his own death warrant with his wet dream of a sales tax hike! What really gets me about it...is the GLEE...the unvarnished ECSTASY that permeates his ugly face when he talks about effing the taxpayers. He has a demonic, deranged, salivating, drooling look about him! Wouldn't you just expect a public official to show a little concern and apprehension about the prospect of stealing MORE money from his constituents??? Not Villar, and the rest of the effing Mexicans...Villar just lights up like a Christmas tree and says: "yes, yes...I EMBRACE the idea of a sales tax hike"!

Message to the cholo crook...GO FUCK YOURSELF! You are washed up...finished...OUT...Vamoose...ADIOS, ASSHOLE!
