Huh... last I heard they had to call the county Marshall to confront the gang members hassling the tourists over there. Anybody know anything about the state of Catalina now? Still dangerous? Safe for grandma?

Avalon's harbor is highly polluted due to the city's antiquated, failing sewer system. Look at the water but for God's sake don't even think about going swimming.

Tourist is correct, Avalon is a mini-LA with plenty of home-grown gang members.

Is Catalina Island still safe? It is unbelievable that the political ruling class is not providing "free" taxpayer funded excursions to the island for "disadvantaged" Long Beach Thug people and their "nice" Thug "youth". If they are not, perhaps a Government lawsuit is in order.

I heard a bunch of black kids flash mobbed a buffalo on the island last week. They took his collar. Took his bell. Took his GPS device. He won't leave the barn now.

Are the gangs still tagging buildings in Avalon? Never thought I'd see the day.
