8 thoughts on “Inglewood church site of city’s 3rd homicide

  1. It is absolutely time to replace Dotson; he is useless. He is not concerned with the issues of the residents in his assigned district. He should have followed-up with communications to the residents of his district. There is never any communication, except for that canned email that overpaid assistant of his sends out. Warren Lane school is in serious jeopardy of being closed. This is the only elementary school in district 1 and not one word from him. And, we accept this type of behavior? No, we should not! He needs to be accountable for his non-actions and he needs to be replaced. Just think how much each of us homeowners are paying into the pension fund for the City of Inglewood employees (check your property tax bill and you will see you pay handsomely into their fund) and this is the type of assistance we receive. If Dotson is ill, he should step down and lets get an interim council person in until the term ends. We need representation from a council person who can handle the job. Time is of the essence, we need help and answers now. Time for Dotson to go.

  2. No matter one’s complexion, VOTERS had best wake the hell up to reality –
    Even during the most turbulent periods in late 60’s into the mid 70’s, the Los Angeles city schools with some of the roughest reputations – Washington, Dorsey, Manuel Arts, Centennial – NEVER had a”mass shooting” on any of their campuses.
    No, the big brains in charge of the LA schools are cutting the police presence on all campuses – Watch!

    1. By counting DORSEY HS among the other city schools with the roughest reputations in the “late 60’s into the mid-70’s” shows you have no personal knowledge, but are making an assumption based on Dorsey’s location. I attended and graduated from Dorsey exactly in the mid-70’s. It was hardly rough. The demographic was approximately 55% Black 40% Asian (mostly Japanese-American) and 5% Other. That’s a very loose estimate because it felt more like 50% Black & 50 %Asian-American, to me. In the mid-60’s to early 70’s, there were still white kids attending the school. Dorsey was the school for all the kids who lived in Baldwin Hills. Parents didn’t need to put theirs kids in private school unless they wanted them to go to Catholic school. There were no charter schools and LAUSD offered the best education.
      So please, stop perpetuating this stereotype of Dorsey in the 60’s to mid-70’s due to its location. Dorsey became “rough “ a decade later in the 80’s when gangs & drugs started to take over.
