No One Can Really Tell The Truth Like John Walsh
Chaotic Crime Wave so out of control in LA that the local cops can’t even prevent a Sacramento Assemblyman’s father from being fatally-knifed at home in one of our “safest” neighborhoods!
HAVE THE CHICKENS COME HOME TO ROOST IN SILVER LAKE?
GANGS RULE IN SILVER LAKE WENT UNCHALLENGED BY LAPD AND MAYOR UNTIL THE AFTERMATH OF THE GATTO MURDER!
Right now is the time to impose that long-stalled Silverlake/Echo Park Gang Injunction before another close member of an incumbent Sacramento politician’s family is stabbed to death by a gangster-intruder in his own residence while staying in a “crime-free” upper-middle class LA community like this one!
CRIME WATCHDOG BLOG SAYS “CRACKDOWN IMMEDIATELY BY IMPOSING THE ENDLESSLY-DEBATED SILVER LAKE/ ECHO PARK GANG INJUNCTION IN THE BLOODY WAKE OF THE STARTLING HOME-INVASION MURDER WEDNESDAY OF ASSEMBLYMAN MIKE GATTO’S BELOVED ART TEACHER FATHER JOSEPH!”
LAPD’S CHARLIE BECK MUST REMOVE THE POLITICALLY-CORRECT BLINDFOLD FROM HIS EYES AND THE POLITICALLY-CORRECT HANDCUFFS FROM HIS WRISTS AND BOLDLY DECLARE AN IMMEDIATE CRIME ALERT SO AS TO ADD MORE POLICE PATROLS FOR THE CRIME-INFESTED SILVER LAKE/ECHO PARK / EAST HOLLYWOOD AREA (THE NORTHEAST LAPD DIVISION) THAT’S CURRENTLY CRAWLING WITH FREELY-ROAMING GANGSTERS, SEEKING OUT SENIOR CITIZEN AS TARGETS LIKE MR. JOSEPH GATTO WHO ENDED UP WITH A BULLET HOLE IN THE STOMACH COURTESY OF HIS KILLER AND LEFT TO BLEED TO DEATH SLOWLY AND ALONE IN HIS OWN HOME!
THE ASSASSIN OF GATTO SAUNTERED AWAY FROM THE SCENE OF THE CRIME, POCKETS STUFFED WITH MONEY AND VALUABLES OWNED BY THE VERY-RECENTLY DECEASED!
THIS MILITANTLY-PERSISTENT BLOGGER HAS WARNED THE UNCONCERNED LA CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS TO NO AVAIL FOR MONTHS NOW DURING FACE-TO-FACE PUBLIC COMMENT CONFRONTATIONS DURING COUNCIL MEETINGS THAT THE SILVER LAKE/ECHO PARK/HOLLYWOOD CRIME WAVE WAS RAGING UNABATED UNDER THEIR COLLECTIVE NOSES AND TO BEEF-UP LAPD SECURITY IN ORDER TO PREVENT AN IMPENDING TRAGEDY … ONLY TO BE CONTINUALLY SCOFFED AT OR GIVEN THE SILENT TREATMENT BY THE SAME LAPD, LA TIMES, LA CITY COUNCIL AND L.A. MAYOR THAT FORM A UNITED FRONT THAT FEARS AN HONEST OPEN PUBLIC DISCUSSION OF THE GROWING GANG-CRIME MENACE HERE WILL DISCOURAGE TOURISTS FROM VISITING LA!
THE COLD-BLOODED GANGLAND HOME INVASION THAT RESULTED IN THE GENUINELY PREVENTIBLE GATTO SENIOR KILLING RAISES THE AWFUL QUESTION: “WHO’S SORRY NOW?”
MAYBE THE SAME LAPD, LA TIMES, LA CITY COUNCIL AND LA MAYOR WILL CHANGE THEIR TUNE NOW THAT THE KILLING FIELDS HAS SPREAD LOTS CLOSER TO HOME!
THIS SILVER LAKE HOMICIDE VICTIM IS NOT JUST ANOTHER EASILY-FORGETTABLE MINORITY PERSON LIVING IN WATTS, EAST LA OR KOREA TOWN!
INSTEAD HE’S WHITE-SKINNED! AND THEREFORE HIS MURDER SEEMS TO BE ENTITLED TO A LOT MORE MAINSTREAM MEDIA COVERAGE THAN THE TYPICAL OF COLOR KILLING ON SOUTH LA!
LAPD CHIEF CHARLIE BECK HAS PUBLICLY ASSURED CITY RESIDENTS AND FRIGHTENED STATE CAPITOL POLITICIANS FROM LA THAT EXTRA SPECIAL TREATMENT WILL BE APPLIED WHEN IT COMES TO CATCHING THIS PARTICULAR PERPETRATOR BECAUSE THE KILLER HAD THE COLOSSAL NERVE TO SNUFF OUT A FAMILY MEMBER OF A POWERFUL SACRAMENTO POLITICIAN!
IN FACT, 78-YEAR OLD RETIRED TEACHER/VICTIM, MR. JOSEPH GATTO, WAS A SITTING DUCK IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE HE LIVED BECAUSE THAT PART OF THE CITY IS PECULIARLY EXPOSED,WITHOUT A GANG INJUNCTION DUE PRIMARILY TO MAYOR GARCETTI AND HIS SILVER LAKE/ ECHO PARK PC POSSE OF BLEEDING-HEART CRUSADING LIBERALS AND THEIR VOCIFEROUS, LONGSTANDING AND SUCCESSFUL MILITANT OPPOSITION TO ANY GANG-INJUNCTION IN THE AREA , DEEMING SUCH ACTION AN UN-NECESSARY MOVE AGAINST A SUPPOSEDLY-GANG FREE PARADISE- LIKE SILVER LAKE/ ECHO PARK COMMUNITY.
THOSE WHO FAVOR GANG INJUNCTIONS AS A LEGITIMATE CRIME-FIGHTING TOOL ARE TARRED AND FEATHERED BY GARCETTI AND FRIENDS BY BEING LABELED: “RACIST”!
THE POLICE SAY, ACCORDING TO THE LA TIMES, THAT THEY ARE STILL LOOKING FOR A MOTIVE FOR THE KILLING!
IT SURE AS HELL WASN’T A LOVERS’ QUARREL! THE GATTO HOME WAS RANSACKED FOR CHRIST’S SAKE!
DUH! THE MOTIVE WAS ROBBERY! ARE THE KEYSTONE COPS ALIVE AND WELL AND PATROLLING AGAIN LIKE THEY USED TO IN THE SILVER LAKE/ECHO PARK AREA DURING THE SILENT MOVIE ERA?
THE STATUS QUO OUGHT TO BE ABANDONED HERE VERY QUICKLY BECAUSE THIS INCONVENIENT BLOODY CORPSE IN THIS CASE IS THE FATHER OF A POWERFUL INCUMBENT STATE ASSEMBLYMAN NAMED MR. MIKE GATTO WHO HAS FAILED WOEFULLY ON A PERSONAL LEVEL TO SHOW THE SLIGHTEST LEADERSHIP IN THEVANTI-SILVER LAKE/ECHO PARK CRIME STRUGGLE TO CRACKDOWN ON SUPER-VIOLENT LOCAL GANGS BY FIRMLY-IMPOSING THE SAME TYPE GANG-INJUNCTION THAT HAS CUT DOWN ON VIOLENT CRIME IN MANY OTHER LA NEIGHBORHOODS.
MIKE GATTO HAS NOW PAID THE GRIM PRICE FOR HIS SILENCE! GATTO THE YOUNGER WAS FOOLISH ENOUGH TO HAVE BELIEVED THE COPS WHEN THEY KEPT FALSELY ASSURING THE ASSEMBLYMAN THAT RESIDENTIAL SILVER LAKE WITH ITS MILLION DOLLAR HOMES WAS A VIRTUAL-CRIME FREE SUPREMELY-SAFE PARADISE FOR HIS AGED FATHER TO LIVE IN … UNTIL THIS WEDNESDAY!!!
MAYOR GARCETTI IS A SILVER LAKE RESIDENT BUT ERIC ENJOYS THE LUXURY OF 24-HOUR HEAVY LAPD PROTECTION.
LA MAYOR ERIC GARCETTI’S NEIGHBORS, HOWEVER, ARE LEFT OUT IN THE COLD TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES AGAINST THESE MARAUDING GANGS GOING UN-CHALLENGED THAT DELIGHT IN BEING PROTECTED BY A LIBERAL PARALYSIS THAT HAS RESULTED IN THE INDEFINITE BLOCKING OF ANY SILVER LAKE/ ECHO PARK GANG INJUNCTION!

After assemblyman’s dad killed, L.A. councilman got ‘frantic’ call
In the moments after Assemblyman Mike Gatto learned that his father had been shot to death in a family home in Silver Lake on Wednesday night, the Democrat put in frantic a call to a longtime friend
Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino, a former Los Angeles police officer, said Gatto called him after his father, 78-year-old Joseph Gatto, was found dead about 8:15 p.m
Buscaino, who described the Gatto clan as being like family, said he immediately notified City Council President Herb Wesson and Mayor Eric Garcetti, who lives in the same Silver Lake neighborhood where Joseph Gatto was killed. He was found slumped over a desk by his daughter Wednesday night after she hadn’t heard from him all day. Los Angeles police said the house had been ransacked, but were still investigating a motive
Buscaino first met Gatto’s son, Mike, at the annual Feast of San Gennaro festival in Hollywood years ago. Both were interested in politics and came from large Italian American families. They bonded instantly
Buscaino supported Mike Gatto in his run for Assembly. Gatto was the first elected official to endorse Buscaino in his long-shot run for City Council.
Buscaino described the elder Gatto as a supportive was incredibly proud of his children’s success
“You saw Mr. Gatto at all of his kids’ events,” said Buscaino. “He was always the man behind the camera, taking photos. He would just swell with pride as a father.
Buscaino also grew close to Gatto’s daughter, Marianna, executive director of the Italian American Museum of Los Angeles. Buscaino introduced her to her fiance
“Just to know that Mr. Gatto is not going to get to walk her down the aisle is hard for all of us to accept,” he said
Lauren Wayne, who said she has known the family for two decades, said the wedding had been set for May. She left a small bouquet of red and white flowers Thursday morning near crime scene tape roping off the 2800 block of Bright Lane, where the Gatto home is located
Wayne said Marianna Gatto ate dinner with her father every Wednesday night.
“I saw it on the news and I didn’t believe it,” Wayne said. “So I called [Marianna] and she said it was true. It’s like a bad dream.
Garcetti issued a statement Thursday saying LAPD Chief Charlie Beck had promised an “aggressive investigation.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the Gatto family,” Garcetti said. “This tragedy is devastating to them and is of concern to the entire community.
