A bunch of immature, out of control drunken gang bangers. You would think the Mayor would have come out and made a statement to his illegal gang bangers to calm it down. But now like an asshole loser he hides and says nothing. Notice in the news coverage they were all Latinos and that is what the nation all over the US saw from Los Angeles. Out of control assholes!!! I say LAPD should go into riot mode and beat the hell out of all of them. But then you'll have the ACLU whining

Ok so a group of thugs wins the NBA, when was the last time anyone ever saw them give back anything to the community, like never. They are a bunch of spoiled bullies from the hood. Maybe they should move to Oakland. Let's see the city is going to pony up a cool million for their parade at the same time cutting library hours, staff and books. That is a great trade off. Then you have all those idiots that start fires, loot businesses, throw rocks at the police all in the name of celebrating the Lakers. For my money it is cheaper for the Lakers to be some place else.

If you share the cost of a parade, half a piece to the city and to the Lakers organization, it's only a million dollars each, and that's Tony's calculation to make it a justifiable CITY EXPENSE?

Last week, the City Coucil chambers was the scene where a small army of assorted city workers begged, pleaded and challenged the CMs to act to avoid cutting jobs and hours. Is this part of that City response? How does that work?

So if the City pays HALF of this "expensive equivalent to 'jewelry' that is totally unnecessary to City operation," it's O.K.?

Maybe you might see some arrogance showing in our politicians, balanced with self-interest outcomes. Who's getting the votes and favors on this one? Or maybe some campaign contribution of 4 or 5 digits in exchange for the 7-digits (a Million Dollars?) of parade costs that will ALSO stretch city services, starting with the LAPD and make traffic more of a joy for those in the area, among other things.

Another day in City of L.A. paradise. Cut a few more city jobs and really do this parade right, CMs and Tony.

in good old CD-14.

You should keep an eye on whats going on in the San Gabriel Valley. Two former mayors and a council candidate jsut got indicted in Temple City for taking bribes - a third councilman was forced to resign.

The former mayor of La Puente's house has just been raided by the DA while he is co-hosting a fundraiser for Huizar -(http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/ci_12589055) - and while he is pushing for Rick Olivarez to the city attorney (http://www.sgvtribune.com/ci_12591299) it just so happens that Olivarez is Lucille Roybal's son.

It seems as if these small cities are in a big rush to play with the big boys form L.A..

What's up with the cost of the LAKER PARADE?
Who paid for the Gay Pride Parade?
and why did no one make a big deal about the cost?

Laker Fan:

Libraries and other cultural things that are getting cut are MUCH more important than a parade.

As much money as the Lakers charge for tickets, they can pay back to the people by giving a parade for them as a way of saying thanks for their support.
Doesn't that sound fair?

The Gay Pride parade is not in Los Angeles and the city has nothing to do with it. It's in West LA.
