There were cases of typhoid near City Hall, near the Police headquarters. They are afraid there will be other diseases and epidemics. Businesses are dumping trash illegally in many places. Recently, 12 tons of trash was removed from a vacant building where the homeless were living around it and in it.
The guest who spoke on News Conference was an investigative reporter, and it was shocking. It was his expose that prompted the removal of the trash. He didn't name names, but said this could have been done a long time ago, before things got so bad, and he did say he had to call the mayor who was in Hawaii. I wonder what the mayor was doing in Hawaii. Again, he didn't name names but the reporter said we have to keep the pressure on the politicians. They say they're going to handle situations, but they don't.
Our mayor Garcetti is asleep at the wheel. I'm not saying these problems are easy to solve, but geeze, do something. He is an attractive, soft spoken fellow who talks a good game, but seems not to accomplish much. I liked him until he backed down on the Department of Water and Power B.S., which was practically at the beginning of his term. I like him less and less and less as time goes on. In the meanwhile, parts of Los Angeles are covered in garbage and rats are scurrying around, and the summer temps will soon reach 100 degrees.
