Torrance is trash-culture

I lived in Torrance briefly,(like 2 years).

IT's basically a very unfriendly city.
I'm one of those rare mixed-races, where I'm half Anglo+ half Latino.

The entire city of Torrance is creepy and unfriendly.
Sometimes I go into the laundromats there and the Korean caretakers act like they don't want me in there.

Also, it has been weird the way the Torrance P.D. stops me for no reason at all, such as when I was riding my bike down Hawthorne Blvd (northward).
The 'black' cop that got out of the police car told me that I look 'suspicious'. After standing there for about half an hour answering his inquiries, they 'took' my picture with this digital camera of theirs. I don't know what they wanted my picture for. They let me go. I have no misdemeanors or any kind of record at all.

Thing is, it's all part of this "Southern California" culture thing where people act mean and make my life miserable.

Pete, sorry to break the news to you,but from where I live, you Torrance people are kinda considered "riff raff"....like Einstein said everything is relative. To us who live in million dollar homes along the scenic coast of palos verdes ,no offense but torrance is by comparison somewhat of a lower class area. I guess if you come here you may get pulled over for looking out of pkace

FACT: 11/6/2006, I was attending LACC when Jane Harman, Diane Feinstein (members of the intelligence community) Baraba Boxer, Phil Angelides, and Antonio Villagraigosa came to campaign for the midterm elections. I moved to Torrance a few months later. Joe Anzack is DEAD! NOBODY in law enforecment will investigate the LA Times for putting Joe Anzack on the SAME PAGE as the FBI in LA, and Medicare; or George W. Bush putting Jaewon Ryu MD on his White House website the SAME DAY rumors of Joe Anzack's death were in the LA Times, while the clinton scum is planning another bid for the White House. I am sure that al Qaeda in Iraq has lots of influence with the editorial board of the LA Times and the FBI in LA. TWO consecutive administrations have linked themselves to Harbor/UCLA. By the way, I want all those detectives in Torrance PD who fight terrorism to know that I have spread this information all over embassy row and various overseas US embassies. The FBI already has acknowledged receipt of those emails. I was dating the ex-wife of an FBI organized crime investigator when I began contact with Fred and Kim Goldman. What is Johnny Chung of Torrance doing these days? He knew Hillary Clinton when Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas. How is Roger Clinton of Torrance doing? Has he tried to help any of his pals in the Gambino family lately? I had told Fred and Kim Goldman that the Gambinos were behind the murders BEFORE Bill Clinton ruined my life by executive order--and the fBI did nothing to protect me!(I took ghoulish pleasure incitng Pakistan BEFORE FBI agents were blown up in Pakistan in March of 2008.) Bill Clinton visited Harbor/UCLA on OJ Simpson's birthday AFTER getting a PDB from the CIA on 12/4/98 that shows terrorist chatter using "mother" and "in the 9th month of pregnancy" as codes for terrorist activities. The PDB also draws attention to Coleen Rowley's birthday, 12/20/98. It may not prove anything in court, but I thoroughly enjoyed spreading it all over embassy row so that the intelligence analysts in countries hostile towards the USA could benefit from it and use it to discredit the US. Lang and Vannater published in their book about the OJ case that Town and Country Limo was based in Torrance. They also mentioned leads about Mafia and money laundering as being the reasons for...OJ Simpson had played golf with Bill Clinton a about 3 weeks BEFORE the OJ murders. Bill Clinton visited UCLA where I was attending UCLA on 5/20/94. TWICE Bill Clinton has crossed my path!
What was done to me is WORSE and MUCH LONGER than what my family went through in communist Cuba. The system works for YOU--not me! Therefore, I have bitter resentment and hatred towards the USA, American society in general, and the farce that is the justice system of the USA. I have repeatedly told China directly, as well as Hizbullah, Iran and Syria, that if Chinese generals are planning to attack the USA using nukes as they have threatened in the past, then I am willing to go! I want to share some of the misery that American society and the justice system has allowed me to suffer for over THIRTEEN YEARS. I have the educational background where I could easily become a nuclear scientist in Russia. It would give me ghoulish joy to help Iran target Torrance with nuclear tipped missiles. Those hopes and dreams are what has kept me going for 13 years. The next time America decides to abrogate civil rights for ONE individual for the greater good, you know FOR SURE you will pay a heavy price.
The mayor of Torrance was ta Harbor/UCLA on 7/9/99. I was at Robinson helicopter in late January to meet George W. Bush. Within 48 hours BOTH Exxon Mobiland Chevron posted record profits in the billions! I will do everyhting in my power to make sure that your story does not get told and that you have NO CIVIL OR HUMAN RIGHTS. You are a white mojado and white mojados do not get to have civil or human rights.

The same thing happened to me while I was in my car driving down Torrance Blvd, and I hear the PA system telling me "Pull Over" with the lights on without the sound. I pulled over being shocked and when the officer asks me and my pasangers if we have weapons on board, we all start laughing because I had two of my buddies one from a federal agency and one local PD with their Service Weapons on them. After telling the Torrance "Cop" whom we were he looked at our credeitials and said sorry. the whole time we gave him a funny look, like why did you pullus over because I have one Asian and a black pasanger with me and we look like cops (Short Buzz Cuts). Torrance PD needs some help, haha they need to hire more Blacks, done deal.
I have never been to Torrance, but I noticed the article because the La Crescenta Sheriff's Dept. has a local reputaion for letting speed demons rocket through town via Foothill Blvd. or the 210 Freeway onramps, yet thay will surround an old lady in her sedan and harangue her a long time. Now, so far, La Crescenta and montrose still have pretty streets and almost no littering. But a town also deped on it's citizens to keep the peace and POLICE themselves, as in no domestic violence, fighting between neighbors, no stealing, or having a trashy look to your property. Now that 9/11 has come and gone, cops have WAY more power than anyone could dream ever happening. Civilian oversight is needed to prevent police abuses, and when there is bad behavior like we see in the news, it feeds those proto-fascists who long for the police state. The cictizens need to really be disgusted by both bad cops AND thugs who ruin any neighborhood. By the way, poor La Crescenta has been under siege from heroin dealers from the Sun Valley/Burbank corridor. The cops up there in La CRS would not listen to locals complain about the dealers, because of the perks provided to those cops on Briggs Terrace Staion by the thug's parents, who were/are in Real Esate. Get a house for super-low interest rates through glad handing and personal connections-why not ???
