"Jose Fernandez looked out his apartment window near MacArthur Park and admitted, in defeat, that he's grown accustomed to the view:

Torn couches, dingy mattresses, broken dressers, dusty headboards.

The procession of rejected furniture piles high and wide on the sidewalk, compliments of neighbors and whoever else decides to dump and run.

Hoping to put a stop to the rubbish, the city recently launched a $1-million cleanup effort aimed at Councilman Gil Cedillo's 1st District, including areas such as Lincoln Heights and Mount Washington. Much of the focus is on the immigrant-heavy neighborhoods of Westlake and Pico-Union just west of downtown.

The tiniest refuse — candy wrappers, grocery bags, fliers — spreads across gutters like confetti. Chairs, rugs and other larger pieces block the alleys and sidewalks in a smelly obstacle course that sometimes reaches 10 feet high.

Saturated with overcrowded apartments and tenants who pack their belongings and move with unusual frequency, the low-income area is notorious among trash collectors because of how tough it is to keep clean.

"It's like weeds," said Jose "Pepe" Garcia, superintendent with the Bureau of Sanitation. "You clear up one alley one day, and the next week — sometimes the next day — it's back to how it was."

Backed by money from Cedillo's general fund, sanitation workers and the Los Angeles Conservation Corps have flooded Westlake and Pico-Union in recent weeks — using trucks, rakes and trash bags to deep-clean the alleys that abut businesses and high-rise apartments. So far, more than 250 tons of trash has been removed, Garcia said.

Garbage is being collected five days a week, rather than on the once-a-week schedule the rest of the city has. Cedillo is working to establish an appointment service so residents can have bulky items carried right out of their homes rather than putting them on the curb.

Several solar-powered and laser-triggered trash compactors, costing close to $20,000 combined, have been placed around MacArthur Park — ground zero for litter.

"What we're trying to do is change the culture of the place," Cedillo said. "To keep people from setting their sofas and mattresses on sidewalks, to stop them from tossing their hot dog and burrito wrappers on the floor."

Cedillo's education campaign, expected to roll out in a few weeks, will target residents as well as property owners. There will be neighborhood meetings, fliers, street signs and billboards. Children at local schools will be encouraged to be more conscious of their waste.

The goal is to find out what causes the constant mountain of garbage, city officials said. Is it overcrowding, bad habits, public events, homelessness, not enough trash collection or some combination of factors?

"We're going to have a full-on assault on trash and litter," Cedillo said. "I don't believe and accept that people think this is OK. If everybody plays their modest role, I know we can keep things clean."

Carmen Rocha, a longtime Pico-Union resident, said she will do her part to spread the word. But persuading people to change their ways won't be easy.

For years, the 46-year-old homemaker handled cleaning at her apartment complex, a building with 101 units on West 3rd Street. She kept asking that people keep trash in the bins and schedule an appointment with sanitation before placing old furniture on the curb.

"They never listened," Rocha said. "My husband would have to help me push these heavy pieces around to get them out of the driveway and sidewalk."

Along South Alvarado Street, merchants do their best to keep the front of their businesses clean. They sweep constantly, sometimes hosing down the sidewalk.

Fernandez, a Guatemalan immigrant, said there is more to worry about than trash piles.

There was the time someone set fire to the abandoned furniture outside his window and the flames almost reached his apartment. And not too long ago there was a bedbug infestation in his building. Many residents had to toss their furniture. It ended up, as usual, on the curb."

"The upper torso of a woman found Monday at a waste treatment plant is believed to be related to the human remains found this weekend at a similar facility in Carson.

The human remains of the woman, who was possibly Hispanic, were found by maintenance workers at a facility operated by the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County in the 1900 block of Workman Mill Road in Bassett, near the 60 and 605 freeways.

The remains were discovered in one of the facility’s water reclamation plant pools.

“During a check for a plug in a line, they discovered a human torso,” sheriff’s Lt. Mike Rosson said. “That human torso appears to be related to…remains that were found in Carson on Saturday morning.”

A calf and a foot were found Saturday at the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant, at 24501 South Figueroa St. in Carson, also owned by the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County.

Raw sewage is treated at both the Carson and Bassett plants, then sent out to the ocean or used as recycled water. None of the sewage that arrives at either plant arrives from a storm channel.

“Anything coming into this plant comes in through a 72-inch line. It goes through a centrifugal pump, so you can imagine what kind of damage to a person’s body would happen going through a centrifugal pump,” Rosson said.

Investigators believe the victim was likely put into the system through a manhole or sewer street cover.

“The line would have to be big enough to transport a body. Our understanding is from east of the 605 Freeway to about the La Verne/San Dimas area and from the 60 Freeway north, it could have come up from any of those arteries,” said Rosson.

Authorities also said there is an extra limb missing they haven’t located. It could turn up in another sanitation facility.

The woman’s cause of death is unknown and will be determined by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

The death, however, is being investigated as a homicide, Rosson said."
What is it with mattresses ?

Do folk like stock pile them in their house, piles of them up the ceiling then suddenly decide, hey these mattresses are getting in the way, I can't reach the fridge & then dump them.

Why do they go through so many mattresses, I've used perhaps half a dozen in my lifetime, I never kept them around, mindyou I had'nt puked or peed in them either so other folk got to use them, but still my feeble mind finds it difficult to comprehend why folk keep mattresses about, I see a dozen outside a house ..where did they come from ? why are they all being throw out now ? are they being replaced ? questions questions.
deal with it

The Reconquista
by Roland Bates

(sung to the tune of . . . well, you know)

The Re-con-quis-ta, the Reconquista
Fifty Million here to stay
The Reconquista, the Reconquista
And millions more are on the way!

Pi-co Ri-ve-ra, Pico Rivera
They throw their trash into the street
Pico Rivera, Pico Rivera
Wonderful place for a swap meet!

Tu-ber-cu-lo-sis, tuberculosis
Horrible third world disease
In L.A. County, in L.A. County
Be careful when you hear sneeze!

Gil-bert Ce-dill-o, Gilbert Cedillo
As one-bill Gil he's also known
Gilbert Cedillo, Gilbert Cedillo
Gets drivers license for his own!

Don't drink the water, don't drink the water
You might taste a dead mujer
Don't drink the agua, don't drink the agua
Who knows what else is hiding there!

It's Los Bra-ce-ros, it's los braceros
When we work we never slack
It's los braceros, it's los braceros
MS ethnicly clean the blacks!

The Reconquista, the Reconquista
We're just simple hardworking folk
The Reconquista, the Reconquista
A big f*ck you to Senor Polk!
Littering is deplorable and tells you a lot about the person doing it.
Explanatory notes to the above lyrics / poem

Mujer is Spanish for woman, agua of course if Spanish for water.

A bracero is a Mexican laborer permitted to enter the United States and work for a limited period of time, especially in agriculture.

MS is short for MS-13, itself short for mara salvatrucha.


"The Mara Salvatrucha gang originated in Los Angeles, set up in the 1980s by Salvadoran immigrants in the city's Pico-Union neighborhood who immigrated to the United States after the Central American civil wars of the 1980s.

Originally, the gang's main purpose was to protect Salvadoran immigrants from other, more established gangs of Los Angeles, who were predominantly composed of Mexicans and African-Americans."

Senor Polk, of course, refers to United States President James Polk, who pursued the Mexican American war that led to the annexation (conquest) of most of the current American southwest. Hence, the Reconquista.


"When Mexico rejected American annexation of Texas, Polk led the nation to a sweeping victory in the Mexican-American War, which gave the United States most of its present Southwest.

After the Texas annexation, Polk turned his attention to California, hoping to acquire the territory from Mexico before any European nation did so. The main interest was San Francisco Bay as an access point for trade with Asia. In 1845, he sent diplomat John Slidell to Mexico to purchase California and New Mexico for $24–30 million. Slidell's arrival caused political turmoil in Mexico after word leaked out that he was there to purchase additional territory and not to offer compensation for the loss of Texas. The Mexicans refused to receive Slidell, citing a technical problem with his credentials. In January 1846, to increase pressure on Mexico to negotiate, Polk sent troops under General Zachary Taylor into the area between the Nueces River and the Rio Grande—territory that was claimed by both the U.S. and Mexico.

Slidell returned to Washington in May 1846, having been rebuffed by the Mexican government. Polk regarded this treatment of his diplomat as an insult and an "ample cause of war", and he prepared to ask Congress for a declaration of war. Meanwhile Taylor crossed the Rio Grande and briefly occupied Matamoros, Tamaulipas. Taylor continued to blockade ships from entering the port of Matamoros. Mere days before Polk intended to make his request to Congress, he received word that Mexican forces had crossed the Rio Grande area and killed eleven American soldiers. Polk then made this the casus belli, and in a message to Congress on May 11, 1846, he stated that Mexico had "invaded our territory and shed American blood upon the American soil."

Some Whigs, such as Abraham Lincoln, challenged Polk's version of events, but Congress overwhelmingly approved the declaration of war. Many Whigs feared that opposition would cost them politically by casting themselves as unpatriotic for not supporting the war effort.

In the House, antislavery Whigs led by John Quincy Adams voted against the war; among Democrats, Senator John C. Calhoun was the most notable opponent of the declaration.

Polk sent diplomat Nicholas Trist to negotiate with the Mexicans. Trist successfully negotiated the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, which Polk agreed to ratify, ignoring calls from Democrats who demanded that all Mexico be annexed. The treaty added 1.2 million square miles (3.1 million square kilometers) of territory to the United States; Mexico's size was halved, while that of the United States increased by a third. California, Nevada, Utah, most of Arizona, and parts of New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming were all included in the Mexican Cession. The treaty also recognized the annexation of Texas and acknowledged American control over the disputed territory between the Nueces River and the Rio Grande. Mexico, in turn, received $15 million. The war claimed fewer than 20,000 American lives but over 50,000 Mexican ones.

The treaty, however, needed ratification by the Senate. In March 1848, the Whigs, who had been so opposed to Polk's policy, suddenly changed position. Two-thirds of the Whigs voted for Polk's treaty. This ended the war and legalized the acquisition of the territories.

The war had serious consequences for Polk and the Democrats. It gave the Whig Party a unifying message of denouncing the war as an immoral act of aggression carried out through abuse of power by the president. In the 1848 election, however, the Whigs nominated General Zachary Taylor, a war hero, and celebrated his victories. Taylor refused to criticize Polk. As a result of the strain of managing the war effort directly and in close detail, Polk's health markedly declined toward the end of his presidency."
The problem with many Mexican immigrants is they want first world benefits like free education, free healthcare, food stamps, rent & utility vouchers, while being allowed to live a third world lifestyle.

Entire neighborhoods have eroded into dilapidated shanty towns because of these people, and anyone who suggests they clean things up is branded a racist.
legalism is actually inefficient.

better to institute a shame based culture.. use TV to teach morals/shame.

make people ashamed to dump.

throwing people in jail/fines etc. don't work.

gotta hit them at the psychological core.
