I feel sorry for the tourists who come to Hollywood only to see homeless people lining the streets and down and out people begging for a quarter.

Hollywood is dying one murder at a time thanks to the Hywd Chamber of Commerce, the old CRA and Garcetti.

Another fatal shooting in Hollywood..one loses count as the bodies pile up here. Regarding the phony liars who keep saying how great Hollywood is doing (under their supposed watch), ..CIM, BID, Hollywood Chamber, Garcetti, O'farrell, LaBonge, etc etc etc..none of which lives here..They all should be forced to walk our streets, without their ritzy drivers and cars, but WALK our streets. And go to the nasty nightclubs they all think are so great.. and see if they all get out alive!

The proliferation of night clubs in Hollywood has created an environment that is hostile to the local residents. The people of Hollywood know to stay inside because of the drunks and gangsters who flood our streets at night. Thanks Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for making Hollywood a tourist trap hell hole.
