    I was a previous landlord to one of the persons listed on here She moved in with her children all seem normal and as soon as they got settled all kinds of activity started social workers in daily and yet when I evicted her she still had her kids, BTW this are American Citizens, This is how great our government is supporting drug dealers, and criminals while the working class has to pay insane amounts for taxes and medical insurance. And did they mention any children taken away? I’m sure kids were in the house while all of this was going on.

      Yes, there was at least 1 small child. I’m not sure who took the child.
      I wonder if the woman who own 2833 W Milling, did a credit/reference or background check on her renters. The address was made public in the arrest reports online.

    Generations of “victims ” encouraged to do nothing with their lives by the liberal left.

    Have any low income housing projects ever been a good thing?
    Narcotic sales is the gangs main source of income according to material I have read.

      Sorry that appears to be off topic when I was really responding to the comment made regarding L.A. City Council and their attempt to gentrify their city.

      Have to agree with you!! But they should also arrest the landlords who rent to these people!!!

      • November 11, 2012 at 12:33 pm

        What could/would they be charged with?

          @Gladys….the last line of the story says…..”The following Lancaster residents were arrested for possession for sales of narcotics, illegal possession of a firearm and having a false compartment in a vehicle.”

          On top of that, I’m guessing their “jobs” don’t pay enough to afford them X-boxes and 4 big screen TVs, so probably possession of stolen property too. Hopefully a few are previously deported aliens and/or felons, so maybe they can be deported also.

            I think Gladys meant the owner of the property.

            Unless the DA can prove that the owner knew what the occupants were doing or was part of the gang, not much. There is however a CA version of the Federal RICO statute, ” California Control of Profits of Organized Crime Act”. The DA would have to investigate the owners of the property and how tied or even if the owner was tied in.

            CaptainObvious, Since you read my comment, I thought you would have read the comment I was “commenting”on. :) Thanks Palmdale Steve. Yes,I was asking what the homeowner would be charged with in response to the statement that Notagain!!! made saying the landlord should be arrested for renting to them. I never read anyplace about it being a rental house, however, I think those people have only been in that house for about a month. It does explain some of the traffic on that street as of lately, both by foot and car.

            My apologies Gladys, I didn’t realize the comment was directed at the “landlord” comment.

          It would be interesting to find out who actually owns the house in question, the exact address did not appear in the article however. There’s plenty of ways to check ownership of a property on line by the way.

          • November 11, 2012 at 3:56 pm

            address will show when Lancaster arrests are posted….I can say it was on the north side of milling about halfway between ranchwood and sandhurst lane

    Nice looking neighborhood from the looks of it on Google maps, go figure.

    Article didn’t mention types or quantities of drugs. The names and ages of the arrested don’t appear to be relatives, so hard to also figure was the some sort of low level criminal group or MM, MS13, Bloods or Crips or what.

          Varrio Nuevo Estrada, also known as VNE, is a Hispanic criminal street gang founded in East Los Angeles, California, in the Estrada Courts housing projects. Look them up.
