A Hollywood Production At Dodger Stadium

Mayor Villaraigosa and Chief Beck are shocked, shocked I tell you, to learn that the environment in some sections of Dodger Stadium is considered dangerous!
And if you believe that, you also probably expect the Clippers to contend for a championship next season.

Directly above this paragraph is a snapshot of three people pretending they intend to fix a problem.  From left to right:  1.  Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who heads the largest sanctuary city in the country.  2.  Frank McCourt, the current Dodgers owner who had a vacant Stadium Security Chief position on opening day, and is terrified of scaring away many gang affiliated members of his team's fan base who buy overpriced beer and Dodgers gear.  3. LAPD Chief, Charlie Beck, who refuses to enforce numerous laws against illegal aliens because Villaraigosa would never let him keep his job if he did.

At this news conference, these three are seen assuring the public that armed officers will now be conspicuosly visible on game days and absolutely no shenanigans are going to be tolerated.  Like many Hollywood productions, of course, these representations have little bearing on reality.  Here's what will actually happen:  Cops will be out in force during the next two or three homestands until the national attention dies down.  Later on in the season (and not much later), the homies from South Gate, Maywood, Canoga Park, San Fernando, Pico Rivera, Long Beach, Palmdale and a couple dozen other blighted, formerly respectable neighborhoods in Southern California, will be back in the upper decks and the pavilions.

Why?  Simple.  They make up a large chunk of what Los Angeles is now.  Frank McCourt no more wants to shoo away a significant portion of the folks who buy tickets, beer and caps, than Los Angeles public school teachers want them to leave and take their children, and the reason for their union jobs, with them.

Make no mistake, this is nothing new.  These nicely dressed gentlemen are not surprised by what happened.  They're just in public relations mode now because this story of the attack on the Giants fan received some national attention.

Don't think that's true?  Do you believe they haven't been aware of the encroaching ghetto conditions sweeping through Chavez Ravine?  Below are comments made two years ago, beneath articles in the L.A. Times, after a stabbing occurred on opening day in 2009.  Cut, paste and google them if you like.  This is reality in Los Angeles, the nation's largest sanctuary city for illegal aliens.

What a surprise...DUH If anyone has been to a Dodger game lately it is like going to a Mexican gang outing. I paid 70 bucks for a loge seat only to have a crowd of tattooed gangbangers who obviously did not have seat tickets crowd me out. I complained to an usher and all I got was maybe I should be the one to move. I won't be going to any more Dodger games.

Maybe the stadium should be used by the INS instead!!!

As a San Franciscan who has spent his fair share of time in LA, I've been shocked by the state of security at Dodger Stadium in recent years. Back in the 80s, I would go to games and remark on the beach ball mellowness in the stands (esp compared to the 'Stick), but nowadays, games in LA might as well be played by the Raiders.

And, it's not just the low paid security, either. Last year, I was at a game where a woman wearing a Giants hat was literally knocked down the stairs of an aisle by a blindside from another woman and then had beer thrown on her. This shocked even the Dodger fans sitting around me. I rushed to the LAPD that were standing 30 feet away and asked them to do something. They responded that it was "private property" and they had no authority. They didn't even bother to see of the woman was okay.

After the game, have fun in the parking lot if you are wearing orange and black. I'm all for witty rejoinders on the deficiencies of the opposing side, but at Dodger Stadium you only get F yous by people who wouldn't know a sacrifice fly from a Texas Leaguer.

Unfortunately this IS a Hispanic gang problem, and I'm not afraid to say it. I never see White skinheads running around causing a brawl. I don't see Asians kickin’ it up and acting wild. Blacks hardly even go to the stadium much less want to be seen in Echo Park at night. So to all the overly sensitive Mexicans out there, I did not say it's a Hispanic problem, it's a HISPANIC GANG problem. Wait until one of the Hispanic gang members shoots you and your kid in the face when he's eating a churro and maybe you will be more concerned about SAFETY then about being included in a statement you were not a part of in the first place.

So yes the lovely LAPD, who go out of their way to avoid gang members in the first place, are only serving the City Council who are a bunch of illegal-alien loving morons. It's a sad fact, but I feel somewhat safer at a Lakers game, and a whole lot safer at an Angels or Yankees game. Dodger Stadium is no place to bring a family. Until they get serious about security and ENFORCE rules and laws it will not change.

These stupid Mexican Gang members need to collectively burn in hell. It’s embarrassing as a Mexican-American to have to witness these idiots give my people a bad name. Putos Welfariados!

I feel bad for the opposing fans. One thing is to heckle and give a hard time, but these gang bangers are literally looking to fight someone and potentially kill them. I would never ever take my kids to a dodger game unless I have really good seats so that I can sit with the civilized folk. Of course we still have the parking lot which is a battle ground in of itself.

The McCourts need to team up with LAPD because its gotten to the point that I fear for my safety. It’s really pathetic. Maybe we can bomb the pavilions and get rid of 15-20 thousand gang bangers all at once.

Seriously though, as much as it hurts me to say this, they need to stop selling booze in the paviliions and they need to not allow tailgating (an enforce it).

Hell, they need to screen for bald heads and clothing. Hah! You resemble an "ese" you don’t get in. They should also have police checking for warrants at the door. I’m sure the pavilions may end up empty.

  1. Los Doyers can keep their ballpark infested with vermin. I would not go there for any reason. They have to cater to the Hispanic crowd or the place would be empty.
