"Stop Watching The News" Unsafe Areas Tip by CasP80

Unsafe Areas, Los Angeles: 13 reviews and 0 photos

I went to Los Angeles by car in 2000 from Toronto. We didnt have any money just enough to get down there we had no place to stay so we just slept in the car. There was 4 myself included. The only thing that made me feel unsafe was the LAPD. The first thing we heard was a radio announcement what to do if the LAPD pull you over never pull over in a dark area never make fast movements always say your recording even if you are not. We got lost in all of the areas just from one wrong turn we ended up on crenshaw , then to inglewood , then compton once we got out it was on to East La not by choice and this all happened at night. What iam trying to say is stop believing everything you hear its nothing but an insult to those working class neighbourrhoods to have to hear nothing but negative about their home especially when there is a lot of positive coming out of there but the news doesnt want to show the positive things. You can get shot anywhere so stop limiting yourself due to fear. The main thing I can suggest though is make sure you have money its no fun without it lol we were there for a meeting so it wasnt just a joyride trip lol lol
