Reader Mail: Park Thugs

thugs.jpgIf you’re a regular reader of 411, you may have seen numerous “incidents” that have taken place over at Church Square Park. From wacky sickos that prey on kids, to unruly gangs of juveniles that know no such thing as social order.

It can’t be rap bands that influence kids these days, right? One thing I’ve noticed though, is that these punks don’t seem to be able to commit these harassing acts when they’re alone, but they become tough-guys when they’re with their pack of morons.

Robert says:

“Dear Editor,

Last night Saturday 1/27/07 around 11 PM was walking through Church Square Park and 4 males started yelling racial slurs, asking me for such items as my money, iPod, Phone, watch….3 of them were approx. 18-19 years old while the other one must have been in his late 20’s….I have seen many reports about this area on your site and wanted to send you this. Have you heard of anything being done to help that area? The lighting could be much better and the police could have more of a presence in there (possibly undercover) once the sun goes down. I did notify the police about this and they said they would send people over to check it out. Its getting ridiculous that that area is known for these types of things and has been know for these incidents for quite some time and not much has been done on a consistent basis to prevent it. I was able to get away easily but what if it was a bit later and females were walking through or someone who was not able to get away? I made sure I told people that were walking that way and told friends of mine (especially female) to avoid the area.”

I guess our Police force is understaffed, because this area is known for incidents like this. Don’t you think they’d do more to prevent it? Maybe if we had sufficient parking, perhaps the cops would be spending less time chasing double parkers and more time keeping our city safe.

Maybe if they had a park where they could play ball they wouldn’t be loitering on street corners causing trouble.

Seen plenty of groups of shithead kids standing around the corners of 5th and Wash, 4th and Wash and other spots. There must be 20 of them, all acting stupid, getting in peoples faces as they walk by. One night while walking home after parking my car, I walked through a group of these geniuses. One dummy walks right up behind me and says “You don’t want none of this!” pointing his finger at me. I turned around and told him in no uncertain terms, that I would make him cry like a bitch in front of all his friends if he was dumb enough to try anything.
Roommates car was vandalized on 4th and Wash (Back window smashed) and I have have NO DOUBT it was the same set of mongoloids. Call HPD and they will come out, it’s frustrating, but theyll eventually get the idea and find another spot to hang out. (Hopefully on the PATH tracks at rush hour) 😈

lol – I’m not a “BnR” but I’ve been living in this town for over 10 years. ghetto trash like that needs to be taken out of this town. if it was me, I would have broken the kid’s jaw for him.

last year, some ghetto p.o.s stole my wife’s purse while we were at East LA’s. we hunted the kid down and beat the living sh*t out of him. kid won’t be stealing anything else soon, let alone using his broken fingers. justice served… 😛 😛

[quote comment=”11969″]You yuppies looking for ‘Safe Parks’ and ‘Safe Streets’ can move to the suburbs. B-n-Rs like things exactly the way they were 15 years ago.[/quote]
I think you should run Chris Campos’ next campaign and have Terry LaBruno write an article about how special he is. Maybe he should take the youth for a drive in his pimped out benz on the west side highway after a night on the town drinking 40 oz! 😈
