One of the reasons I got the hell out of this cesspool. LA is gonna kill itself out and that's good too. The police Dept. is dirty, doesn't want to be everywhere,(thats why there is more of a presence in the valley than Watts), and the City doesn't let you legally carry protection. Getting 'caught' carrying protection makes you a criminal. What a joke this place is.

L.A. is no different than any other place. There is no escaping crime,which is a result of sin. If you think the answer to the problem is everyone carrying so -called"protection" then you have totally missed the point,All that would serve to do is make matters worse. A bunch of vigilantee's trying to take the law into their own hands,is total lawlessness! You want protection,try having a "Knee" ministry. Instead of moving to where you "Think you and yours are "Safe"
