Thank you Officer Ruiz. The Foothill cities can so benefit from men like YOU,and thank you for being of a higher caliber than certain others of your juristdiction,who show up always after something terrible is going on,and spend more time gathering around senior citizen's cars badgering them with tickets,than stopping real crime. When I heard this from long time residents of La Crescenta,that this was common knowledge I did not believe this at first. It sounded too "out there" for me- until I encountered certain patrolmen on a first name basis with the homies,doing land deals,and God only knows what else for them. But for my unfortunate search for a rental in 1999 one hot September afternoon,and some careless pastor referring me to a man in his congregation who had a room to rent,I'd be ignorant of the horrors I faced on Mayfield Ave. Renters MUST google their landlords before paying the rent and committing,or they may walk into a life ruining event,as I did then! No one ever told me I should do this each time I was to move to a new place,so I warn you now. Please don't be passive in relying on law enforcement to protect you from THIS. My new roomate once had a terrible past as a child molester when he was younger,though he paid his debt,did time in prison and did NOt reoffend again,I am OUTRAGED that no one-no cop,neighbor,or the broker/agents ever told me in time to leave the situation. THEY knew but never said a word. The guy in question did lead a moral life after his stint in the clink,and I was in no danger from HIM,just the homies who stole the house from him. But I will ever regret not checking out the people I rented from,so I warn others now. Be your own consumer advocate!
