Nov 24 - Downtown LA business owners concerned crime is uncontrollable
 

 
Downtown LA business owners concerned crime is uncontrollable


Tuesday night's stabbing spree inside a target store in Downtown Los Angeles has residents and people who work in the area extremely concerned.

There's no question that homelessness has expanded dramatically in Downtown LA but now business owners are demanding more from the city government in order to prevent another stabbing like the one that took place Tuesday.

A homeless man stabbed a child and woman that night inside the Downtown LA Target store located on 7th and Figueroa Street.

The suspect was shot by a security guard and was later pronounced dead at a hospital. The two victims did not suffer fatal injuries but the woman was said to be in critical but stable condition.

Fortunately, the stabbing did not result in a fatal conclusion but business owners say the attack was just one of many crimes that take place in the area on a daily basis.

Problem we are having is people walking in, grabbing merchandise and leave and Burlington policy right now is a hands off policy liability to stop someone," Nejdeh Avedian said. "People coming in smashing and not just our building, but all over frustrating tenants and customers. I want to change all that."

Avedian is the owner of A property building that houses a Burlington Department Store and several other businesses in Downtown LA.

He told CBSLA Reporter Jasmine Viel that on a daily basis, people go into the Burlington store and steal items. The department store's policy is to to not provoke or try and stop shoplifters.

Avedian, who also owns the Saint Vincent jewelry center on 7th and Broadway, has hired private armed security but said crime still runs rampant.

Claudia Oliveira is the President of the Downtown LA Neighborhood Council. She is working with Avedian to try and make Downtown LA safer.

"Property crime can definitely escalate to something else. It's for the mayor to declare a state of emergency and pass legislation and make decisions that normally would take years able to make," Oliveira said.

Melynda Choothesa is on the neighborhood council board and owns Quirk, a resale clothing store. With a mother who suffers from mental illness, she is sympathetic to what she sees on the street every day.

"We need to change policy. We can't allow people who can't make sound decisions for themselves to continue to decide not to get help," Choothesa said.

Flood the area with cops. I prefer seeing them over sketchy looking dudes who just stare as you walk by and have you wondering if they’re gonna call their broke a*s friends and identify you as a target.

It is. Homeless people walking everywhere. You canít go anywhere without seeing someone sleeping on the street, talking to themselves, or sh*tting on the street. If you ever come to LA, walk down Broadway by the Jewelry District and tell me you donít feel like you have to keep your head on a swivel. Itís not just homeless people either, itís also the suspect a*s dudes who hang out by the sneaker stores always getting into some sh*t. Use the Citizen app and youíll see what Iím talking about. At least a couple incidents a day. Whenever I go downtown I NEVER wear hyped sneakers or nice jackets for that reason. I donít trust anyone around. We need more cop presence to make these losers feel uncomfortable.

cop presence dont matter they dont give half of a fu*k

they gotta change laws

why i cant drink a beer on the street but they can shoot up and take sh*ts on the sidewalk

u shouldt be allowed to sleep on the sidewalk or bus stop period

give them a option go to jail or rehab

thats the only way


these zombies coming from out of state just to homeless in LA cuz its lit af lol and mfs be giving out money all day

venice beach is worst too, they got big a*s tents on the fukkin beach like they balling, all they got to do is beg for a couple hours get 100-200 bucks buy they drink and drugs and living they best life, or they robbin

Ain't enough cops lol the best solution is to address poverty and mental health..

The left thinks people should have the right to live on the street and the right wants them all locked up..

The solution is get them the help they need job services, mental health care, and mental institution for those who can't live in society safely..

But there aren't enough jobs and the rich will never give up the tax breaks needed to make it happen

Should've thought about that before you became a shill and catered to these young democratic punks.

When I think about it, I thought California was supposed to break off from the US and do its own thing by now anyway? At least that's what people were saying in the 90s.

Exactly. I thought that policing an area in order to deter crime was "rayciss....."

Inflation, out of control unchecked corporate corruption , guns, the mass need to be socially validated, media instigation, unsolved racist systems, public political bribing and everything else you need to make your own Dystopian nightmare novel or movie...

...and it's all right in America.

And that's not even half of it.

And people saw this coming many, many decades ago. Matter of fact, many of the movies and books from America constantly pointed it out.

There's been nothing happening so far to prove that it won't continously get worse for a lot of people.



But keep voting guys.

Keep playing the game!

It looks like it's helping.

Meanwhile Target and other big box stores engage in wage theft of their employees by the tune of tens of millions of dollars a year. Guess what makes the news.

Piss on that fu*ker's grave. That sympathy goes out the window when you start harming people.
