MISS USA 2015: Natasha Martinez, Miss California, AND a LATINA from Chino Hills, will win Miss USA 2015 ... Trust me on this one

No comments:
Natasha Martinez, will be the 2015 Miss USA.  Mark my word.  (Miss USA Photo)
By Randy Economy
Wednesday, July 1, 2015
The next Miss USA will be a Latina from California, and her name is Natasha Martinez. 
Yep.  Bank on it.
The controversy over Donald Trumps "Mexican(s)" comments that have propelled him into a world wide brew ha-ha will end up with Martinez, a 23 year old stunner from Chino Hills with the 2015 Miss USA Crown on her head.
Beauty pageant politics have been around ever since the first queen was crowned....and this year is no different.
So today, the Miss Universe Organization issued the following statement to members of the media....

"The 2015 MISS USA® Pageant will still take place in Baton Rouge on July 12th. We are disheartened by recent events but the show will go on.

The Miss Universe Organization operates as an independent company. In its 64 year history, and under many owners, Miss Universe has developed into a globally recognized brand, with nearly 150 franchise holders domestically and internationally, the majority of whom are small business owners.

The Miss Universe Organization is built on a foundation of inclusion and continues to be a celebration of diversity and of all cultures. This year's Miss USA contestants represent many different ethnic backgrounds, including six Latinas (four of whom are of Mexican descent).

Annually, nearly ten thousand young women all around the world participate in MISS UNIVERSE pageant events. We continue to welcome those from all backgrounds to enter our system. Our franchisees work tirelessly every day to empower young women to be confident and to be their personal best while raising awareness and millions of dollars for philanthropic endeavors.

While world politics and other influences will undoubtedly play a role, the pageant will always seek to transcend controversy. It is unfortunate that recent events beyond our control have only served to negatively impact the women who participate in the pageant, our state directors, our sponsors and our fans. We want our supporters to know we remain committed to them and we will be conducting the pageant, regardless of the current situation. We are moving forward, full-steam ahead as planned for the next two weeks, culminating in the crowning of a new Miss USA on July 12."

@EconomyRadio : US Conference of Catholic Bishops Calls Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage 'A Tragic Error?' What do you think? Tweet me @EconomyRadio

1 comment:
So, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops have issued the following statement regarding the United States Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage yesterday.

I want to hear from my readers and radio show listeners about this by my TWITTER FEED @EconomyRadio

Here is the 'official statement."

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Supreme Court decision, June 26, interpreting the U.S. Constitution to require all states to license and recognize same-sex “marriage” “is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us,” said Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

The full statement follows:

" Regardless of what a narrow majority of the Supreme Court may declare at this moment in history, the nature of the human person and marriage remains unchanged and unchangeable. Just as Roe v. Wade did not settle the question of abortion over forty years ago, Obergefell v. Hodges does not settle the question of marriage today. Neither decision is rooted in the truth, and as a result, both will eventually fail. Today the Court is wrong again. It is profoundly immoral and unjust for the government to declare that two people of the same sex can constitute a marriage. The unique meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman is inscribed in our bodies as male and female. The protection of this meaning is a critical dimension of the “integral ecology” that Pope Francis has called us to promote. Mandating marriage redefinition across the country is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us, especially children. The law has a duty to support every child’s basic right to be raised, where possible, by his or her married mother and father in a stable home. Jesus Christ, with great love, taught unambiguously that from the beginning marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman. As Catholic bishops, we follow our Lord and will continue to teach and to act according to this truth. I encourage Catholics to move forward with faith, hope, and love: faith in the unchanging truth about marriage, rooted in the immutable nature of the human person and confirmed by divine revelation; hope that these truths will once again prevail in our society, not only by their logic, but by their great beauty and manifest service to the common good; and love for all our neighbors, even those who hate us or would punish us for our faith and moral convictions. Lastly, I call upon all people of good will to join us in proclaiming the goodness, truth, and beauty of marriage as rightly understood for millennia, and I ask all in positions of power and authority to respect the God-given freedom to seek, live by, and bear witness to the truth."

OP-ED From Ed Rendon: Iran-Israel, 'Bad agreement today makes conflict more likely tomorrow.'

No comments:

Ed Rendon, Op-ED Contributor
(Note: I welcome ALL opinions from all points of view and from all over the world.  This OP-ED is from Ed Rendon of Los Angeles, and his opinions are his own).
Negotiations are important.  And they can be tricky, especially when dealing with a negotiating partner that you know you can’t trust.
I’ve been watching closely over the past 18 months as President Obama and his administration have worked to negotiate an agreement with Iran over its illicit nuclear weapons program. I am deeply appreciative of the president’s efforts to find a diplomatic solution.  We need to try to find a peaceful solution, but we also need to make sure we have an agreement that meets our objectives.  One thing I’ve learned is that a bad agreement today makes conflict more likely tomorrow.
Ultimately, the goal of these negotiations is to come to an agreement that truly prevents Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. If a deal is reached and the president submits it to Congress, there are a number of specific, basic requirements I will be looking for to determine whether this agreement is good enough.
First, any agreement should provide us the ability to know whether or not Iran is complying, especially since Iran has a long history of hiding and lying about its nuclear program.  The United States has asked for intrusive inspections that will allow international monitors unimpeded access to suspected nuclear sites, including military sites.  Iran has said that military sites will be off limits, but that would just give Iran a built-in “safe zone” for conducting illegal nuclear research and development.  Bottom line: we need full access, on a timely basis, to any suspected nuclear site.
Second, Iran needs to come clean on its past nuclear weapons activities.  We know that at one point Iran was trying to figure out the technical angles on building a nuclear bomb.  They have refused repeated international requests for information.  For any future agreement to be meaningful, we need to know exactly what Iran did in the past so we will know whether or not they are cheating in the future.
Third, Iran wants international sanctions lifted at the same time the agreement is signed.  That’s ridiculous.  Iran wants to get paid up front just for signing.  The reason Iran is negotiating in the first place is because Congress passed tough sanctions laws and the Obama Administration worked hard to build an international coalition to impose real sanctions that threatened the regime.  If Iran gets relief up front, the incentives for complying with their obligations go way down.  Any agreement must provide for sanctions relief over time, and only after Iran has fulfilled its obligations.
Fourth, the outline of the agreement announced in April indicated that Iran would be able to move full steam ahead after only ten years.  I was deeply troubled when the President said the agreement would only prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons for 13 or 14 years.  That’s not very long in the history of the world, but a nuclear Iran would definitely change world history.  Any agreement should last for decades, not years, to ensure that Iran is not a threat to us or its neighbors.
Finally, Iran must dismantle the bulk of its nuclear infrastructure. If the infrastructure is left in place, it will be too easy for Iran to violate the agreement and covertly develop a nuclear weapon. Any agreement needs to require Iran to get rid of, not just but a padlock on, its nuclear infrastructure so that Iran won’t have either a uranium or plutonium pathway to a nuclear weapon.
I remain hopeful that we can solve this problem diplomatically, and I know how difficult tense negotiations can be. But if we aren’t able to reach a good agreement that includes these five requirements, it’s imperative that our negotiators walk away from the table and continue to impose sanctions until Iran is ready to demonstrate it is truly serious about not having a nuclear weapons program.  As President Obama has said repeatedly, “no deal is better than a bad deal.”
A good deal with Iran is one that gives America and our allies around the world the comfort of knowing that Iran cannot and will not become a nuclear state.  Without these five elements – verification, transparency, gradual sanctions relief, a multi-decade timeframe and dismantlement – the agreement is not one we should support.

KFC Confirms To 'The Randy Economy Show;' the 'Chicken was Chicken'

No comments:
So, the chicken was chicken after all, and it wasn't a rat, according to the folks over at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

I received the following statement from Laurie Schalow, regarding claims made by Mr. Devorise Dixon....to several media outlets and on his Facebook Page....

So, here it is.....

Randy –
We understand you have invited Mr. Dixon to reappear on your show tonight to talk about the claims he has made against KFC. Mr. Dixon’s attorney turned over the product in question for testing at an independent lab Friday. The lab has officially confirmed that the product is chicken. We ‎request that you reconsider the decision to provide further air time to someone who is providing the public with misinformation.
Thank you.

OC Register Super Journalist Keith Sharon Jumps on the Chicken or a Rat Brew Ha Ha

No comments:
Gotta give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to one of my childhood peeps here in Cerritos, Journalist Keith Sharon with the Orange County Register for mentioning me tonight in an article talking about the chicken/rat controversy.

Thanks Keith....

Here is his take on the situation...

A fried rat proved to be radio gold.

Randy Economy, the host of "The Randy Economy Show" on AM 870, was sent a Facebook picture of a deep-fried rat on Saturday afternoon. Four hours later, he had created a sensation.
The deep-fried rat had been discovered by Compton resident Devorise Dixon in his box of Kentucky Fried Chicken. When Economy, a former parks commissioner and political adviser in Orange County, saw the picture of the rat, he invited Dixon on the show (Click to the 42nd minute of the show to hear the interview).


Best comment from the article...."Chickens don't have tails."

Gee, I think we need to be talking about this AGAIN on Saturday night's Randy Economy Show on AM 870 The Answer (KRLA).  Opps.  Sorry.

OP ED: Equal Pay For Equal Work Should Extend to L.A.'s Police Officers

No comments:
I wanted to published the following OP-ED.... from leaders of The Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers' Association.  These opinions are not mine...(disclaimer).
Photo Provided to Randy Economy Blog
By Julius Levy, Vice-President, Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers' Association
Now that the ink has dried on the measure raising minimum wage in the City of Los Angeles to $15 by 2020, it's time for Mayor Eric Garcetti to guarantee equal pay for equal work for Airport Police Officers.
We are a minority majority police department. So it's hard to believe that in a city that champions and in fact paves the way for equality for all on all matters that in 2015, Airport Police officers are still treated like second-class citizens when it comes to pay.  This, even though the danger we face and the work we do in keeping Angelenos and the 150,000 passengers who travel through the nation's second busiest airport safe is in no way different from our sister agency the Los Angeles Police Department.
It's been over 6 years since the men and women responsible for public safety at LAX, LA/Ontario International and Van Nuys Airports have had a cost of living adjustment.  When the City was in a budget crisis, we selflessly agreed to 20 percent pay cut on our last contract to "share in the sacrifice" with LAPD.
Well, it's 2015 and our last contract expired in 2010.  Our contract is no cost to Los Angeles taxpayers because Airport Police are not paid through any City or State tax dollars. We are funded entirely by proprietary airport landing fees and other airport related revenues. And while LAX has enjoyed increased passenger loads topping more than 10 million in the past 5 years and it seems that with every new week there's some announcement of bigger and better improvements at LAX, little is said about making sure that men and women who are the first line of defense in any terror-related situation at L.A.'s three airports are fairly compensated.
The Mayor and Council President Herb Wesson supported making all police hiring standards the same which included legislation that gave Airport Police officers the same authority equal to LAPD and LA Port Police.  However, LAPD officers who are working at LAX have their salary, benefits and retirement paid for by Los Angeles World Airports at a much higher rate than Airport Police.  How is that in any way fair? 
The bottom line is that the City is sending a message that Airport Police, while duly sworn law enforcement officers who do the same work as Los Angeles police officers, are not equal.
So while we applaud Mayor Garcetti, Council President Herb Wesson and the entire city council on passing the $15 minimum wage law, your work is not done.
Airport Police officers deserve equal pay for equal work and that means a compensation and retirement plan on the same level currently enjoyed by our sister agencies, the LAPD and Los Angeles Port Police.  Anything less is sending a message of 'separate but equal' to the rank-and-file men and women whose lives are no less valuable than other police officer working in the City of Los Angeles.  That's not a message that works well when trying to recruit the best and brightest applicants. 
We hope that the same goodwill that spearheaded the City's minimum wage increase extends to finally achieving parity in compensation and retirement for Airport Police officers with the City's other police agencies.

Kentucky Fried Chicken's Public Relations Firm Responds to 'Randy Economy Show' Interview About 'Is That Chicken a Rat'

No comments:
The worldwide coverage of my interview last week with Devorise Dixon regarding his allegations that he found a "rat" in his chicken din din over at a local Kentucky Fried Chicken store here in South Los Angeles has also resulted in a "official statement" from the public relations firm that represents the legendary All-American Chicken eatery.

KFC is saying this....

"We saw you story regarding the claim by a Kentucky Fried Chicken customer, and I wanted to send you an official statement from KFC directly. Please let me know if you have any questions and/or if you will be able to update your story with the response."


Statement: A customer has made a serious claim against KFC and refuses to cooperate in the investigation. The images the customer originally posted do not include this second angle because it clearly shows it’s a piece of hand-breaded white meat chicken. Based on this, and the fact that he refuses to allow anyone to see the product, we are left to believe that he intended to deceive the public with this hoax and we are considering all options.

The suspect vehicle is described as a dark-colored SUV; there is no description of the driver or possible passengers.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s Major Accident Reconstruction Team is handling the investigation.

No comments:
Up in smoke, dude.
I ran across this newsbit today from our Peeps over at the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. 


Glad to see that Rafael Sarkisyan is heading to the Slammer.  The War on Drugs in Los Angeles County will go on forever, but at least we have another one of these so called "Drug Lords" off the streets and behind bars.

Here is what the media was sent about the case today....

A Los Angeles man pleaded guilty today to running a downtown drug operation that caused a fire last summer, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Rafael Sarkisyan, 34, pleaded guilty to one count each of manufacturing a controlled substance, recklessly causing fire to an inhabited structure and animal cruelty.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 4 when he is expected to receive six years, eight months in state prison.

Deputy District Attorney Ashley Rosen with the Major Narcotics Division, who prosecuted the case, said a blaze broke out last July at a six-story building in downtown Los Angeles. After police and firefighters arrived, they found a marijuana grow and extraction lab on site.

Inside an apartment, police discovered two dogs that appeared to have died in the fire.

Case BA427308 was investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department.

Detectives have identified the alleged shooter as a 56-year-old Hispanic man who lives in Lakewood, according to an update from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Going to keep tabs on this situation here in our community. These are scary times we live in here in Southeast Los Angeles County. It seems like more and more violent crimes just keep on taking place...

Powergrab by Assemblyman Roger Hernandez, Senator Tony Mendoza EXPOSED on The Randy Economy Show, and those darn RED LIGHT CAMERAS in Beverly Hills also REVEALED

No comments:

The Randy Economy Show is now OFFICIALLY ON FIRE...and yep...we exposed some real shady political game playing this past Saturday night. In case you missed the Saturday, June 6, 2015 broadcast of “The Randy Economy Show” on AM 870 The Answer (KRLA) you have to listen to how we EXPOSED the scams of these pesky “Red Light Traffic Cameras” here in Southern California....and how State Assemblyman Roger Hernandez and California State Senator Tony Mendoza are working to retaliate against Downey Mayor Pro-Tem Alex Saab. The guests are Saab, Jay Beeber of Safer Streets LA, former Downey Mayor Mario Guerra. Also in studio was Randy’s newest “Side Kick,” former Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine. BTW: Downey Mayor Luis Marquez is “in” on the “plot” regarding the “power grab” that is detailed during the show that would literally remove Saab from the Downey City Council under the guise of the "California Voter Rights Act."
I hate when politicians try to stop Democracy in it's tracks....we have no place for mean spirited politics in Sacramento....period. Enough is enough.

Who is pulling the puppet strings of Assemblyman Roger Hernandez, and WHY does he want Downey Mayor Pro Tem Alex Saab OUT OF OFFICE

No comments:
Saab will be a guest LIVE IN STUDIO on my show Saturday night, June 6th!
Sacramento continues to be totally out of control....yep...they are doing it to us again....

Downey Mayor Pro Tem Alex Saab will be my guest LIVE IN STUDIO on Saturday night to talk about how Sacramento legislators are trying to influence local government and elections…and how these same politicians are trying to abolish Downey’s at-large Council seat and force the City to redistrict immediately into an five-district map (or switch to a four-district, at-large Mayor, system).

I am going to be telling it LIKE it is and exposing the game playing going on behind the scenes with Assemblyman Roger Hernandez who is pulling puppet strings in this bizarre power grab.

Thanks Alex Saab for your participation in advance!

Here is more from Mario Guerra’s recent post on Facebook about the situation:

“Assembly Member Roger Hernandez ( NOT from Downey ) is moving bills in the Assembly (and sent at least one of them to the Senate already) that would abolish Downey’s at-large Council seat and force the City to redistrict immediately into an five-district map (or switch to a four-district, at-large Mayor, system). We currently have four district representatives and one at large citywide seat, currently held by Mayor Pro Tem Alex Saab. The two bills are AB 278 and AB 277. AB 278 would require all general-law cities with populations over 100,000 that have at-large elections to switch to by-district elections. That would not affect Downey, as it is a charter city. But then AB 277 removes the charter city exemptions from AB 278 and specifically calls out mixed by-district / at-large systems such as Downey [and Oakland] as not being exempt, in its Section 14026(a)(3)..Since Downey has elected councilmen and women from every race and in every district, the argument that we are depriving any particular race or culture from elected office is mute in our City. This is another waste of taxpayer money and influence. Sacramento legislators need to let local government and residents govern and elect their own officials.”

Most of these “lawmakers” in Sacramento are totally out of control…and these “power grabs” have no place in our Democracy here in California.

Pass the word. Tune in!

Hot news coming out from the top brass at the Los Angeles Airport Police Officers Association TODAY in regards to a possible vote of "NO CONFIDENCE" by it's members against LAXPD Police Chief Patrick Gannon.
I have talked about the LAXPD on my show on several occasions in the past and this press statement issued today continues to fuel unrest deep inside the rank and file and leadership with union members.
Look....no man is an island, and no union is perfect....and perhaps Chief Gannon would like to come on my show LIVE IN STUDIO to talk openly about his detractors and this latest flap.
Here is the UNEDITED press release JUST sent to my about Chief Gannon. 

So the obvious question, does Chief Gannon have way too much baggage to carry around these days over at LAX?
LOS ANGELES, CA - As a last resort the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers' Association (LAAPOA) has filed a grievance on behalf of four senior detectives that is set to go to arbitration saying that the department's management has forcibly removed them from the critical assignment of the Crime Task Force without cause, inappropriately and quite possibly illegally. The detectives removed were sent back to patrol and of the eight detectives remaining in the unit, two LAXPD Detectives were placed on loan to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Pacific Division. LAAPOA is questioning whether or not the detectives are being used to help LAPD's Pacific Division clear their backlog of Major Assault and Auto cases.
LAAPOA, the union that represents the rank-and-file police officers of the Los Angeles Airport Police Department (LAXPD), today raised concerns about what they say is LAX Police Chief Patrick Gannon's inability to the cut the umbilical cord to the LAPD where he worked for over three decades before coming to LAX.
Gannon's most recent reassignments and his bringing in a LAPD detective from Pacific Division into LAX make the Airport Police Department's detective unit primarily comprised of LAPD personnel instead of its own men and women-something the union said would happen at the beginning of 2015 when they raised concerns over Gannon's attempted removal of senior and most experienced key personnel from the department's Emergency Services Unit and K-9 units. 
With the increased crime rates in Pacific Division and calls from Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin for the LAPD to deploy more police officers to combat what Bonin described as "an escalating and unacceptable crime problem," LAAPOA says that LAPD officers should not be taking up residence in another police department but rather handling their own jurisdiction. 
"This is just another example in a long line of examples of Chief Gannon being unable to sever ties with the LAPD," says LAAPOA President Marshall McClain. "The rank-and-file men and women of the LAX police department continue to be confused as to whether our chief is working for LAXPD or LAPD. Gannon's decision to send LAXPD detectives to help LAPD with what we can only assume is their backlog is just further proof that he's confused about which police department he heads up."
Airport Police are not paid through any City or State tax dollars and are funded entirely by proprietary airport landing fees and other airport related revenues. A recent audit showed Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) generated nearly $822 million in airport revenues and received nearly $45 million in grant funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in 2012. 
By moving Airport Police detectives to LAPD's Pacific Division, which is outside of the airport, Gannon is being complicit in the diverting of airport funds. If the detectives were working on LAX airport cases, there would be no need for them to be outside of the airport and working at the LAPD's Pacific Division. 

Federal law requires that airports receiving federal grant funds, including Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), must use their revenues from landing fees and other charges for airport purposes only, in order to keep those airports as self-sustaining as possible. Sending LAXPD detectives over to help the LAPD is not an "airport purpose."
L.A. has been cited for airport revenue diversion more than any other city in the nation. LAWA was already caught illegally paying nearly $8 million dollars to LAPD for services it cannot provide documentation for between 2006 and 2012. LAWA also spent approximately $192,000 of airport revenue on unauthorized LAPD personnel working at LAX. In addition, a USDOT audit detected $49 million in financial reporting discrepancies between the amounts LAWA reported in its statutorily required annual financial reports to FAA and its internal financial reports.  Money that is still the subject of an active federal investigation and has yet to be explained in detail or reimbursed. 
"Unfortunately, it looks like most of the same is going on with airport revenue diversion in Los Angeles and is now being aided-and-abetted by our own police chief," said LAAPOA Vice-President Julius Levy. "Gannon has taken us back 15 years to when the first LAXPD detectives were sent to LAPD's detective school.  Now by his removal of all our senior and most experienced detectives and supervision he is sabotaging our detective unit in an attempt to create a need for more LAPD officers at LAX and establish a command and control for LAPD which he has now placed in charge of the unit.  
He added, "The voters have already spoken in favor of entrusting airport policing to a single dedicated agency.  No other airport in the country has this type of redundant policing services and despite the fact that the current split-policing model is both unnecessary, costly and inefficient, Gannon and LAWA still continue to find creative ways to keep LAPD on the payroll when the tax paying residents of L.A. desperately need their services. " 
LAAPOA says that a vote of no confidence in Chief Gannon could happen in the near future.

#VictoryParade Car Chase becomes "Instant Classic" here in LA LA LAnd

No comments:

Talk about a bizarre slow-speed chase...this one on Friday night here in LA LA LAnd was one for the books....
This guy....driving in a convertible Ford Mustang was cruising Ventura Boulevard with a home made sign that read "Victory Parade."
He led police on pursuit at 10 mph with his hazard lights on in the western San Fernando Valley flashing the "V" for "VICTORY" sign all the way.
The cops couldn't stop this guy, but some other onlooker ended up pulling Victory Driver out of his car....right in front of stunned television on lookers....
Lots of social media chatter. #VictoryParade was a hot TRENDING topic on Twitter within minutes.

I love LA!

Alec Ouzounian, 40, of Rancho Santa Margarita, dies after another officer involved shooting

No comments:

It seems like we are reporting that someone in Southern California has lost their life due to an officer involved shooting, and today in Orange County, it happened again.

Just a few minutes ago, the Orange County Sheriff's Department issued the below statement regarding the death of Alec Ouzounian, age 40, of Rancho Santa Margarita.
Now another "investigation" will get underway as different law enforcement agencies investigate one and other.
There HAS to be a better way to "investigate" these type of deaths.
Our system is broken. 
RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. (May12, 2015) – On Tuesday, May 12, 2015, a deputy-involved shooting occurred in the residence located at 28 Paseo Viento.  The victim of the shooting, Alec Ouzounian, 40, Rancho Santa Margarita, was transported by paramedics to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
At approximately 2:10 p.m., Orange County Sheriff’s deputies responded to 28 Paseo Viento regarding a subject attempting suicide.  Deputies arrived and entered the residence where they confronted Ouzounian, suffering from multiple self-inflicted stab wounds.  During the confrontation with Ouzounian, the deputy-involved shooting occurred.  No deputies were injured during the incident.
The Orange County District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigations is conducting the shooting investigation as is protocol for all Orange County Sheriff’s deputy-involved shootings.

BREAKING: Sherrif's Involved in Deadly Suspect Shooting on Pires Avenue here in Cerritos

No comments:
Location of the deadly shooting in Cerritos on Pires Avenue. 
EXCLUSIVE Photo provided to Randy Economy Blog

 What an awful afternoon here in a normally quiet neighborhood on the Eastside of Cerritos.

A suspect was fatally shot by sheriff's deputies near Artesia Boulevard and Carmenita Road over on Pires Avenue last this afternoon.

According to ABC 7, the suspect led Lakewood sheriff's deputies on a short chase before crashing into a fire hydrant, sending a geyser into the air and water gushing onto the streets. Deputies opened fire as the situation escalated.

One suspect died at the scene.  Details are still be sorted out at the scene.

Streets are totally blocked off in and around Artesia and Carmenita.  The place is swarming with law enforcement officials and television news crews have arrived at the scene.

Photo from ABC7
One of my interns with my radio talk show actually lives just feet away from where the shooting took place.  Needless to say his family is shaken up, as is the rest of us who love Cerritos...and who proudly call the "Tony Eastside" our home.

Neighbors are shocked over this situation.

These type of things just doesn't happen here.  Pires Avenue has the most spectacular trees dotting their street in a city that is "Tree City USA!"  The homes on this street are valued at $900,000 and over $1 million.

But, these are scary times we live in and no neighborhood is immune to violence.

Remembering Mike Higby today here in Los Angeles. His last interview was on my show just last week....

No comments:

Sad to hear that Mike Higby has passed away unexpectedly. Mike was a political icon here in Los Angeles and was more than just a political watchdog/reporter/talk show host...Mike was also a kind soul to many of us who were fortunate enough to know him on a personal level. The details of Mike Higby's death have not been fully disclosed but today I ask that all of you take the time to say a Pray for Mike Higby and his Soul. I believe Mike gave his final radio interview on my talk show on AM 870 The Answer (KRLA)just a week and a half ago here in Los Angeles. Mike was totally on his mark that interview. Witty. Funny. Compassionate. I was honored to have Mike Higby as a friend.  RIP!
