Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Tuesday

Looking good baby, looking real good!
Yet another one of Los Angeles' children loses their life.  It seems to be a growing problem whether it is at the hands of the police or gangs or both. Of course our bigger concerns in Los Angeles are billboards or pot or Costco.  Red Spot authors a touching and personal observation of the death of 15 year old Miguel Machuca.  Mothers across the city are weeping, we have failed them as we all opine on about a bunch of useless crap.

If you're a City Clowncilman who has been caught not living in your District how do you pay the mounting attorney fees for your legal defense? Hit up all the lobbyists in town. That's what Richard Alarcon is doing with his first Lloyd Bensten like breakfast being hosted by uber-lobbyist Steve Afriat.

Never doubt a community that can effectively organize around an issue of concern to them.  That's what residents of Venice have done to fight homeless people parking raggedy RVs on their streets 24-7 and dumping their waste into the gutter.  Councilman Bill Rosendahl heard and is taking action.

What does any person arrested and accused of possessing illegal drugs say? They're not mine.  And Paris Hilton is doing just that.

Come on Higby, the decedent, 15-year-old Miguel Machuca, is better known as 'Silent,' a gang member who will not be missed by anyone other than his fellow shit for brains gang members. Most mothers will be weeping for joy that a future killer has been terminated. Nice to see we're getting bang for our 36M bucks that gets flushed down a toilet cleaned by Mayor Villaraigosa's Anti-Gang strategery. Perhaps AV will deliver a eulogy for 'Silent,' accompanied by the asshole tagger he held his hand up for.

Red Spot forgot to include one aspect of this kid's death that he always overlooks: the glorification of being stupid. Of shunning education. Of keeping each other down. The more people in these hoods hold each other down, the more they'll be kept down.

Red Spot always overlooks this. Instead, he wastes his time writing incessantly about morons who THESE PEOPLE voted into office.

Red Spot's ignorance isn't limited to his illiteracy. He is ignorant of common sense too, and will continue to be ignorant until he goes after these very people who glorify stupidity and shunning education.

The fact that Higby won't hold him to a better standard is indicative that he lives that glorification, too. Take a look at the old Harlem Boys' Choir. They focused on greatness throughout, not just on singing.

That's the problem here.

Hey Tony CardenASS, how proud of you are the mass murder in mexico this morning?

You suck Tony CardANUS.

You're gonna lose CardANUS.

Stop stealing the city's money and do your fucken job! You lost control of the gang programs and are thieving money by shoveling it to your sister.

The Lloyd Bentsen connection is very weak. Besides, you should have more respect for the dead than to compare them to Alar Con Artist.

Meanwhile the billboard dude has been in prison since being arrested, apparently unable to make $75 thou bail. Had a vacant building so he tried to make some momey. Near LAX so I wonder what the foot traffic really was around there, or why HE got picked?

No one disputes that supergraphics can be a fire hazard, but MOSTLY that's to the people IN the building when a fire breaks out and firemen can't get in. THIS building was vacant.

Story's going around the country on the Bloomberg News site, makes L A look real business-friendly.

Glad we don't have gangs to worry about.

And the med weed shops closed down that had been paying rent, taxes and providing jobs were keeping drugs OUT of the hands of cartels.
Sure they should be regulated but it's one extreme to another, and Clown Carmen's supporters blame it all on Huizar and AlarCon now. Huizar was foolish to demand an arbitrary 75, but it was the job of City Attorney's office to listen to Building & Safety when they warned that the new restrictions would be draconian, and warn Council accordingly. Not to excuse the Clueless Council either.

HOW MUCH are these suits costing?

The Billboard Dude was picked because he broke the law. The building in question is at the intersection of the 405 and Century Bl. (the LA Times says it's on Sepulveda, but that's incorrect) and the supergraphics are aimed at the 405, both northbound and southbound. If the City does not prosecute this one, then the next guy will put up his graphics and sue the City for selective enforcement. This is how Delgadillo started losing in court the last time around. And then the costs of the lawsuits will REALLY go up.

As far as your argument on the pot shops, are you now complaining because Nuch did NOT suggest policy to the Council? When the billboards were being discussed in Council you were whining that it was NOT the City Attorney's job to suggest policy. Which one will it be? Or do you just like to criticize?
