On Thursday morning, the City of Los Angeles
began cleaning up the outside of what many neighbors describe as the house of horror hoarders home. There’s everything from laundry baskets, sofas, mattresses, to stoves and ovens circling around in the front yard. “I’m just finally glad that something is being done about it. The only major concern I have right now is once we start removing these things, and all the nasties that they were in there start to come out. Hopefully, they don’t migrate to our house,” is what Edward Lim
told the Fox 11 LA folks.
When asked about all of the “nasties,” the homeowner’s son told the FOX11 LA folks
that all the “nasties” ended up in the front yard because he moved it from the backyard. The homeowner’s son also told the FOX11 LA folks
that he just moved in, several months ago, to care for his elderly mother.
Folks, let’s be honest, the son sounds like a stereotypical young buck who trashed up his mama’s house. There are sofas, stoves, ovens, and other whatnots in his mama’s backyard.
He “moves in” and moves out the junk from the backyard to the front yard. Now, anybody who thinks cleaning involves moving trash from the back of the house to the front of the house is a nasty somebody who more than likely put the trash in the backyard.
Y’all have seen it before. Y’all know it’s true. Now, it’s quite certain the son and mother will deny the claims, but if the shoe fits.
The city attorney
says they’ve been working since August 10, 2021, to resolve the problem. “Ever since this location was first brought to our attention in late August, 10th Council District team has actively engaged the Fire Department, Building and Safety Department, City Attorney’s Office, as well as appropriate County agencies and neighbors, in an effort to bring swift resolution to this concerning matter,” is what the FOX11 LA folks
quoted the Chief of Staff of the 10th District City Council Karly Katona as saying in a statement.
Considering this has been a problem since 2010, neighbors, like Letecia Ruiz, say they wish the city had been Johnny on the Spot in addressing the issue some 11 years ago. “I’m so happy and grateful, but I feel sad it took the city so long to help us,” is what the FOX11 LA folks
quoted Letecia Ruiz as saying.
Mm-hmm, bureaucracy is bad for the public’s health. Mm-hmm.
