I was very active in the community. It does not make a difrence that I am straight. I used to leave in the 3-story buliding on the West end of the 7-11 Parking lot. WE where active both Gay, Straight whatever. I had a : Ear : in the LBPD as some of you might remeber there was a cigier shop at the end of the street that if you asked for a certain CD / or other item you could by any drug you want. At one time we almost had the neigerbood cleaned up, constant patrols, many drug busts , a gut in car breakins .<quoted text>
Yeh, I was shocked when I went into that 7-Eleven one night around midnight and the beer cooler was locked up. I never got over that.
Don't know nothing about no male hookers, tho.
What happened ? I was CI for a officer that got very tired of not the neighborhood but the mangnment of the LBPD .
He was looking looking for a gang menber who went by name Spider ... and I found him. This deticive worked at the Long Beach Mall and was so tired of trying to get the gang unit to pick him up that he did.
It was just not me but entire community envolment thst cleaned up this area .
If I am right [and it has been a while ] I think the Alamtos Hights Group The Voice of the group died ] We or I worked with the Achol Atuhority in Paramount and they closed them down [ The achool sales for a few weeks and fined 7-11 ] What I am trying to say if you want your neighborhood back you must fight for it. The detective retired [ He was parttime at the time ] but He worked with us. I was in the area a few weeks ago and cannot belive that people donot care about their neighborhood . We proved that the pay phones where a a public nusance and had all off them removed from Los Altamtos to Redondo . I see there back at the Chevron station and other places along Brodway. The 7-11 is one off the top selling stores in the State and we did try to shut it down.
If anyone wants to see a diaster go by the was a cleaned up area and when the citzen loses intrest this is what happens. I had friends from out of State and they thought they where in a upside world . I told them they where. First Street was a 100% improvment until 1139 Ist Street become a apatment house of sex offenders.
1st , 2nd, used tp look like e 3rd Street . I will not even mention the MC Donaalds at 4th and Alamtos as you can get killed there. We fought and fought the City and as you can see the City
lets see how I can say this without being censeored ] They told us we where nimber one [ think of your hand ]
I loved Alamtos Beach and left in 2008 by force when my company went out of bussiness. The City could make 300 more parking places very easly by opening Alamtos Beach Parking Lot sell permits for the night time security that would be needed from Sun Down to Sun up .
Thee City would rather [and I donot remeber the excat price ] for diagonal parking and one way streets . I do know it was in the 100s off thounds which helped for 5 minutes. They need to open the beach at night for parking but will not. I could go on for page after page but I must stop. During the Grand Prix you should see the look on peoples faces when walking down Orange and on the 4th of July. Enough said . I have deylexcia and do proof read but some errors will get through .
