Rick Swinger Says Police Tell Homeless to go to 3rd — No Tickets, No Harassment

Rick Swinger, activist on 3rd, has long stated that the police and others have told homeless to go to 3rd Ave between Sunset and Rose. Homeless were assured they would not be ticketed or harassed. Police and officials have denied such.

This young man says police told him to go to 3rd or else.

Rick requested the LAPD send him all tickets issued on 3rd between Rose and Sunset from first of year to the present.

“Here is how many they have issued in almost 10 months,” according to Rick. “I don’t know if this included parking tickets but for all the crop shops, drug use, tents being up after 6 am, just 15 is to me a ‘No Ticket Zone’ that has been denied by the senior lead officer and others.”

    How did you get these stats ? We’ve been requesting same information for our area in Mar Vista on Venice Blvd and do not get the run around.

    I agree with Rick. We residents have rights that are continually violated by the transients around 3rd. LAPD has to step it up and do their job. We residents demand justice.

    The problem with the LAPD corralling the transients to 3rd is not only does this increase crime next to our homes but it also increases the odds of having a disease outbreak due to the massive amounts of dumping and rats coming out of Public Storage Warehouse!

  4. Get these Bums out of Venice

    Rick Swinger refers to these people as the Homeless. They are life stylers robbing and steeling from whom ever they can.
