As violent crimes rise in L.A.'s Melrose District, business owners and residents are frustrated!!!! Why isn't anything being done to prevent these violent crime sprees?
To address these crime sprees, some LAPD executives hosted a virtual town hall meeting that was full of angry residents and business owners.
Dom Deluca, Owner of the Brooklyn Projects clothing store and skate shop, said on the Zoom town hall:
"I am losing employees now! They are afraid to come to work,"
He would continue to vent his frustrations,
"I figured out the riots," ... "I figured out the pandemic. But this whole crime thing? This is beyond any of us. It’s like the purge."
More angry store owners and residents voiced their anger. Having to adjust to these crime sprees has been a factor many have been having to do.
Joshua Jones, the CEO of Dead Homies would say during the town hall:
"All my transactions go through my phone,"... "I got to keep it like that, or they gonna try and take it out of your pocket."
Deputy Cheif Blake Chow of the LAPD would respond:
“Without a safe environment we really have nothing," ... "You have our commitment as a bureau, we’ll do everything possible to bring that era of public safety back.”
Store owner, Dom Deluca, of the Brooklyn Projects clothing store and skate shop will be joining John and Ken TODAY at 3pm PST!!! Tune in!
