Have a problem with Armenian's? You could go fk youselves. We are incredable/wonderful/amazing people. Everyone should dream about meeting an Armenian and being friends with us.
You are a pig and show no manners. Your posting attempts to justify your actions and points fingers instead of taking responsibility. When you and you hoodlum criminal kind become ethical honest people then maybe people will "dream about meeting an Armenian and being friends" with you. Until that time honest ethical people do not want to associate with you and do not want to be identified with you. That is how it really is.

you have no way out with a lie..

When and where did turks kill those people.

If they killed them between 1890-1915 why did 15.000 Ottoman Armenian Ministers,ambassadors,pashas and public servants did not say anything?

If it was happened only in 1915 how could Turks do it when they were fighting in 14 fronts including Canakkale in 1WW?

Even Hitler ,Hitler could kill 1.200.000in aushwitz with great techn. and menpower in 4years,with your NAZI LIAR-MENIAN collabrators' help in France during the 2WW?

See my 2 new theories abour your fccen genocide of the Liar-menians hehehehgeehehehe ­JLJIGV15KE53THNR/p2#c29

First off, making generalizations about a whole race based on an incident that happened between 70 makes all you yankee doodles sound like racist hypocrites. Second, if you guys were educated enough as to know demographics and statistics, you would see that the majority of the population in Glendale is not Armenian. There are more Whites and Asians living in Glendale than there are Armenians. Third, 63% of physicians in the US are Armenian (Check the facts). Last but not least, CVS pharmacy was just fined for fraudulent claims, Martha Stuart went to jail for insider trading, CEOs of banks, mayors, and others in high positions of organizations such as Richard Scrushy of Health South all committed fraudulent acts against this wonderful country of the Unites States. If I may, i'd like to also add that other races can just as easily be put down for raping family don't see Armenians talking about the Turks killing them off do you? To the racist ****s that think this is an "Armenian" thing, check the facts and think again.
63% check again

From the fearless Glendale News Press, who is not intimidated by Armenian Power or their local hoodlums. Please notice the last name of the lady who fled the country is Grigoryan. Maybe she is related to Ara Grigoryan who hit a Mexican girl on Glendale Avenue about 7 or 8 years ago and then fled the country and was caught in Mexico trying to board a plane back to Armenia to avoid prosecution.

Man sentenced in Glendale medical fraud scheme

8:14 PM PDT, July 20, 2015

A Tujunga man was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison Monday for his role in a $20 million fraud scheme that used a sham medical clinic in Glendale to defraud Medicare and Medi-Cal with phony prescriptions.

ARTAK OVSEPIAN, 33, was found guilty after a trial last year of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, aggravated identity theft, conspiracy to misbrand pharmaceutical drugs, making false statements to the federal government and conspiracy to use other people’s identities in furtherance of fraud.

Operators of Manor Medical Imaging in Glendale employed an unlicensed medical practitioner, NURITSA GRIGORYAN, of Glendale, to prescribe “expensive” anti-psychotic medications using a licensed doctor’s name, and later billed and rebilled the government for the drugs, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

By manipulating files of patients who were recruited or whose identities were stolen, operators made it seem as though the individuals – which included elderly and homeless people, as well as veterans – were being legitimately treated.

After the prescriptions were filled, the drugs were sold on the black market and redistributed to pharmacies, where they’d be used in new claims filed to Medicare and Medi-Cal.

Medicare and Medi-Cal paid more than $9 million of the more than $20 million in fraudulent billings, officials said.

Two others, including Kenneth Johnson, 48, of Ladera Heights, and Grigoryan, 49, were also convicted after last year’s trial, and about a dozen others have been convicted in relation to the scheme.

Johnson, the doctor who pre-signed thousands of blank prescriptions that were later filled out by co-conspirators, is slated to be sentenced in November.

Meanwhile, Grigoryan, who pretended to have an American medical license when she saw homeless patients and filled out the phony prescriptions pre-signed by Johnson, reportedly fled the country after her conviction and remains a fugitive, officials said.

From the Glendale News Press on November 19

Glendale attorney charged with attempted extortion in shooting case

t started with a triple shooting at a North Hollywood body shop in April 2014.

Two brothers, Robert and Akop “Jack” Torosian, the latter of which owns Papillon International Bakery in Glendale, had gotten into a business dispute with the shop’s owner, Hrach Gasparyan, and another man, Hrut Fitilchyan, which resulted in a shootout that left three of them hospitalized, according to Los Angeles police and the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

Both Torosian brothers were arrested, but just one, Akop, was charged in connection with the crime.

To this day, there are conflicting accounts about who the aggressor was in the shooting, according to someone with knowledge of the case.

Akop Torosian, whose bakery was honored in June by Assemblyman Mike Gatto as small business of the year, was — and still is — facing two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a semiautomatic firearm. These charges carry a sentence of up to life in state prison.

But last November, Armen Tashjian, the Glendale attorney representing two of the men who were shot, allegedly made an offer to Robert Torosian.

For $2 million, the criminal case against his brother could go away.

With that money, Tashjian’s clients — Gasparyan and Fitilchyan — would either leave the country or keep quiet on the stand.

“(Gasparyan) will take the stand and say … I don’t remember, I didn’t see anything, I don’t know who shot who,” Tashjian allegedly told Robert Torosian last November, court records show.

Investigators were privy to the alleged shakedown, though the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office declined to discuss its investigation techniques.

Three months later, Tashjian reportedly emailed the bribe offer to Akop Torosian’s defense attorney Daniel Behesnilian, who when reached Thursday declined to comment on the case.

This week, Tashjian was charged with one count each of conspiracy to commit the crime of offering to receive a bribe, attempted extortion, conspiracy to commit extortion and conspiracy to commit an act injurious to the public, according to the Los Angeles County Superior Court criminal complaint.

When reached by phone Thursday, the body shop owner said he was shot once in the arm the day of the shooting, but could not remember additional details. He added that investigators recently served a search warrant at his home and business.

Fitilchyan, the other man involved in the shooting, meanwhile, could not be immediately reached for comment.

According to the district attorney’s office, neither Gasparyan nor Fitilchyan have been charged with any crimes, nor are they under investigation.

Tashjian is slated to be arraigned next month.

When reached via email, the attorney said he had not yet seen the allegations against him and was therefore unable to comment.

“Please know I will defend myself to the fullest,” he added.
