    HG sure has had increase in murders this year, seems like aprox 1/2 doz. murders. Feel for the residents in South Cerritos and East Lakewood. South Bloomfield and Del Amo Blvd; both are starting to look like gang areas, walking the streets, homeless camps and homeless sleeping in their cars on Del Amo Blvd- Centralia- and Carson Streets. Still seeing alot of young teenage moms, pushing strollers along the pavement, plus homeless in wheelchairs.
