Mayor Blob Foster and our brand new police chief justified reducing police staffing 15% by claiming crime is down in Long Beach. Yet, just recently, the FBI crime statistics were released indicating crime is up in Long Beach. Now we have a report indicating the crime problem in Long Beach is worse than LA. Furthermore, the only city in LA or Orange county with worse crime than Long Beach is Compton.
WHY IS OUR MAYOR AND CHIEF OF POLICE LYING TO US? What else are they lying to us about?
Isn't that enough?

I bet none of you gutless wonders have the balls to say anything like that to a black person to their face. Cowards. All of you. Don't just talk the talk here on your keyboards, practice what you preach out loud so we can see who you are. To hell with Politica correctness, man up and say it in public if you have a pair!

I'm not a racist.

I have nothing against the black race. It's the black culture I detest. That, and using the word "be" as a verb. Do I make myself clear Mr. Angry Black Man? Ditch the anger and start acting white. It will do wonders for you and then I won't want to crush you like an annoying bug.

The Breeze sure loves these race baiting stories.

Why not hold a series of townhall meetings sponsored by the DB to let it all hang out.

With this lousy economy people have their pitchforks out and it's open season on anyone of color.

Dear Citizens,

Trivia and a grade/rating from whom?

This should not concern us, really!

What should concern us is how we got into this ugly environment!

Why is Compton so Violent?

After all Mayor Tucker and Rep. Tucker were smart guys and knew how the system worked...and for Walter---too well!

Where is Walter?

Sincerely,

Don Karg

Walter is as silent as is Liz Clrk; both of them were silenced, only the means were different. Liz collected a cool million.

Dear Citizens,

Yes, and the former Mayor of Compton and the Elected U.S. Representative in 1992, The 35th District, was sent to Traficant Land [Traficant was arrested by the FBI in 1982, 2002 went to jail]---the Big House---by our FBI who kept the lid on Treason until the 1998 Cox Report!

Now what was more important National Treason Case or the Bribes Walter asked for?

A mayor in a town in Los Angeles County overrules national Treason!

We can see by this move why the county is in a nightmare!

Sincerely,

Don Karg

Walter had too much spirit, as I remember, when he attended our Forum in 1992, at the Alpine Village [4/29/92]. Our **real** leaders in the background [i.e. bankers] don't appreciate that.

Robbyn and Liz Clark were too outspoke also; one was rewarded to keep silent [$1 million], the other one was stabbed to death.

Others were driven out of town, including Don Karg and Robbyn's father Allen Panitch. And the feared IRS kept silent [Carson office] too. They knew what was going on. The crooked L.A. County Marshals were "dissolved" in 1994, without being investigated. Sheriff Block pointed to our "societal breakdown," but he suddenly "expired" [1998], a few days before his reelection. Yes, "we" know how keep them silent, in one way or another.

The FBI even lost their homebase in the South Bay, due to "lack of funds." Great, and then the light went even greener, for our deeply entrenched white-collar criminals. And the "Breeze" was dead silent, never interviewd any of these Special Agents.

And sly Karl Jackson was promoted [AirResearch/AlliedSignal], he was made the president of our Torrance Chamber. And Schwarzkopf simply disappeared [Hughes Aircraft, Lomita Boulevard]. Charlie Nix "expired," another Hughes connection.

At least John Shook got fired as "the LIAR" in 1996. Our
"honorable" Torrance judge. He was "elevated" by Deukmejian in 1986, soon after the owner of "Slid-matic" suffered a mysterious "massive stroke" at the Alpien Village [2/2/86].

Yes, one quickly runs into major "difficulties," if one is not "cooperative" in Torrance. Congressman Walter Tucker found that out first hand. But we know, TomFromPV still thinks I'm making all that up, just to entertain the people?

So whites are to blame for blacks not raising their kids right, for staying ignorant and killing each other? If it wasn't for whites, blacks would still be in Africa chucking spears and living in poverty. The finger has been pointed, get over it mo ron.
So instead they're living in poverty over here and "chucking" bullets.

So reporting crime statistics is now "race baiting" because much of the crime happens in minority districts? So if it was Hermosa Beach instead of Compton that would be Ok. BTW there are now more Hispanics enrolled in K - 12 schools in CA then any other group. I guess whites can become a protected minority now.

Compton is like any large urban city,however I live in Compton and the majority of the people are law abiding, tax paying, hard working people. I am willing to bet that a large portion of crimes committed in Compton are from outsiders coming to Compton. As a new resident to Compton I have not seen aa much crime as I was told from people and the media. The general media is bias and love reporung negatve press. There are problems here, but there is more positives than negatives. We have a givernment workind hard to make change and letting the rest of the world know about the new Compton. There more to Comton than Dr. Dre, NWA and gangs. I never respond to these types of blogs but today I was sadden to read some of the statements. Please don't be afraid to visi Compton. By the way both my husband and I have post graduate degrees and we chose to live in Compton. For the hater get a life, and don't make assumptions. For the media talk to real Comptonites we are here and we are safe! As an African-American I feel safer in Compton than many other cities in LA county.
