What can you expect? With this totally incompetent leadership running West Hollywood. From the WEHO City management to the city Council.

The city is not only corrupt, but also dangerous.

Why did Sheriff’s close down Sweetzer and Norton at around the same time of shooting We were told can’t leave the building ? Was this part of the shooting or car accident Helicopter above us so loud and freaking us out with shadows and sound. I was sound asleep for once? What’s going on? Today many people checking LP# on streets, lots of Sheriff’s and undercover driving around. What,s going on?

This will occur again, and forbid this was a stray bullet that hit a pedestrian walking or passerby driving a vehicle while someone shot off rounds! Our safety is in jeapordy by others use of violence and other people who might come from a venue or club or be walking home too during the times these parties unravel in violence!

So the tweakers have free rein to sell drugs and get high in the Plummer Park bathrooms all day long, break into cars and apartments around the clock and steal anything they want whenever they want. Meanwhile, the wannabe gangbangers have free rein to constantly rob people at gunpoint from here to Melrose to Beverly Grove. And now two people get shot. Anyone else had enough of this yet ? It’s time for the Sheriffs and LAPD to take the gloves off and start kicking some ass once and for all.

The West Hollywood Public Safety Department oversees the West Hollywood Sheriff station. We need a strong person at the helm at the Public Safety department to hold the Sheriff Department accountable for the crime rates in West Hollywood. Until that happens, we are all at risk of being victims of crime.

Wasn’t the person at the helm of the Public Safety Dept called out for bullying? Think I read it here. Whatever happened with that?

I don’t know if it’s the same incident, but the Sheriff’s helicopter was hovering around for hours before the time stated in this article.
