  2. This is not good. That area has been a trouble spot for awhile. Its not a good feeling hearing that helicopter circling overhead for the last few hours and seeing all this police action.

  3. They were there for three hours, at least eight cop cars, and at least 20 cops. They checked almost every backyard on Branden with the canine unit from what I could observe and there was a bunch of teenagers near the corner of glendale and branden (where several people were arrested) cheering and yelling at the cop cars as they finally pulled out of the street around 9:15-9:30.

  6. No, anonymous, we won't move out. We'll just expand the Neighborhood Watch program and continue to lobby Garcetti and the LAPD for more patrols, and you gang members will feel the pressure. You child-killers (remember the 9-year-old Thai girl on Kensington and the infant in Pico-Union who were killed) don't control the streets and we will continue to be vigilant until all law-abiding, decent Echo Park residents, from white hipsters to African-Americans to raza, can live here in peace. Keep up your shenanigans-- we're watching you and building our case against you and your homies.
