    So many negative stuff about who lives here. Last week an assistant pastor from LBC shot another church member in a drive bye. So I guess better look out for Christians

    All the cops are used to keep King Rex safe as well as the Lancaster Baptist Cult Compound. Not until King Rex is gone will things improve.

        @lily, Tommy is exactly right. Go if u don’t like it here what’s keeping u here? Your the one with issues u live somewhere u hate, we live somewhere we want and all u whiny babies have to do is complain and blame a place for your unhappiness. Aren’t you in charge of your own happiness. I have a feeling your unhappy no matter u are cuz your with yourself

      Exactly Tommy & no I’m not new to the area. Whiners and complainers will never be happy. If people don’t like living here move, your negative attitude isn’t helping.

        I don’t know but it’s on a culdesac and the neighbor has a security camera and there is only one way in and one way out so doesn’t make sense to me why they haven’t gotten it.

            If I was the neighbor, not only would the cops have video, they would have all the license numbers so they could visit all the disrespectful young people who “did see anything”.

      No doubt!!! But while the crime rate is going up, the good old City of Lancaster’s “sky spy” isn’t preventing crimes, is it? So what is it doing up there all hours of the day. I haven’t heard of any crimes being prevented because of it. Have you?

        The eye is looking at your property and eyeing unpermitted property improvements so that the tax assessor could increase revenue for the city.

      Yep that’s right, leave and let the criminals win, you people that want to complain all the time can change things. Report criminal activity. No doubt gang related. I will stay in the AV and be a pain in the Arse to gang members and scum bags. Don’t let them win.

        I hope you have never been a victim of crime in this valley as I have…I have seen it all…when the mayors, cops, detectives, prosecutors, and judges want to finally really get tough on crime instead of fattening their wallets with the revenues that are created by having crime in this town then I would consider staying…I frankly don’t give a d*** about this town anymore because quite frankly the whole system is broken! Good Luck staying and trying to fix it because you will need it! Just think if there was a real tough stance on crime we wouldn’t need to employ so many cops, detectives, prosecutors, or judges because we wouldn’t need their services…crime makes the revenue go round and round!

        Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the gangs have already won, and you can thank your school system, town, city, county, state and federal politicians for facilitating the hot mess the AV has become. This is not the AV of the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, or even the 90s. But look what has happened since. They all should be ashamed of what they have allowed to happen, and indeed welcomed, to our valley.

    This is why I have moved away from California, I have lived there from 1974 to 1989.. I did not want to raise my kids in that environment, I knew it was going to a peaceful place to a high crime rate, at least where I live at now it is peaceful and low rates on crimes and it’s a better place to raise kids at. Lancaster use to be a great place to live but not anymore and that is a shame to say anymore…all I can say is I am sorry for what had happened and I hope they are going to be o.k. and my prayers is with them,their family and friends.

        That’s so weird that the a.v.has changed since 1950.everywhere else has stayed the same.
