After Quiet July, August Starts with Bangs

RELATIVELY FEW reports of thug-on-neighbor incidents since the first week of July's window smashings, until these August crime reports on the Atwater Village forum:
  • August 2: "Just saw the Aggravated Assault mark on the LAPD crime map that took place on Tyburn and Garden..."
  • August 5: "We had gunshots on Garden and Glenhurst tonight around 7:45. In fact they shoot windows out of a car. Must be some sort of gang ritual..."
The Atwater Village Crime Spree 2008 Map has been updated.

I heard the shots too. About five in a row. Not pleasant.

i appreciate all your efforts and love your blog but it cant be good when curbed la is posting our crime map on its blog..no wonder this neighborhood continues to get a bad rap.. silverlake does not talk about their crime, nor hollywood and we have way less than hollywood. I think we all should think about the trickle down effect these posts and blogs are having. Freedom of speech is great.. just saying thats all that other people keep seeing from us.

Sage, is your theory that crime ignored is crime erased? If so, you'd best alert all the bloggers in South LA!

I say to hell with reputation if Atwater Village neighbors continue to communicate with each other, and refuse to tolerate property damage and the threat of personal harm.

No its not-- Its just its upsetting that our crime map is what we are becoming known for...we all already know there is crime here and in every other part of Los Angeles. I already knew this is what your response was going to be- i guess your right and I should just stop caring.

"We already know there is crime here and in every other part of Los Angeles?" So, what are you saying, no one cares?

Maybe when it comes to your block, to your property, to your person, you'll care more.

Its been to my block. You are right newbie i should have just kept my mouth and opinions to myself.

Yes, atwater is a crime-filled pit, like most/all of Los Angeles.

You should be scared, and probably should return to whatever flyover state you came from - Colorado, right?

Hair styles with bangs are not simply cutting your front hair so short to have them. Variations are available depending on the shape of your face and what personality you would like to project. Check out http://www.hairstylewithbangs.net for more.
