It was amazing and a relief seeing LAPD maintaining the Peace on 3rd at Rose Friday at 7:15 pm. Its been just awful with all the violence on 3rd and around this area in recent days, weeks and months.

Every Friday L.A. Sanitation cleans 3rd and the transients move ALL their baggage over to Rose Ave starting at 6 am and then all yelling, fighting, and screaming starts and lasts into the evening! Now with the combination of the hot stench of rotting perishables, rat infestations, meth use, and excrement that prevails,  residents here are fed up. Even some of the homeless are going elsewhere. Its just too crazy for everybody!

Thanks LAPD for showing up here!  Councilman Bonin please listen to your constituents! Its time to give all of us a better option to this! Designated Campsites with the infrastructure needed to provide decent relief from these Dirty Filthy streets is in order here!

    Jack Kelly, not only have I used Morales independent of the 3rd and Rose group, but I watched them clean up the mess left by well-meaning but idiotic people who drop off boxes and boxes of produce a few times a week. The same two guys also drop off produce on the beach at Dudley. You can walk on down there and pick up dozens of baking potatoes because no one seems to touch those.
