    Perhaps, within the next year or two, the ethics violations of hers will be brought to light and taken up.
    That truly is the scary part, this woman actually does represent the thinking of the population base she was voted in by.

    Here, have at it.

    Gardena, California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The 2010 United States Census[11] reported that Gardena had a population of 58,829. The population density was 10,030.0 people per square mile (3,872.6/km˛). The racial makeup of Gardena was 14,498 (24.6%) White, 14,352 (24.4%) African American, 348 (0.6%) Native American, 15,400 (26.2%) Asian, 426 (0.7%) Pacific Islander, 11,136 (18.9%) from other races, and 2,669 (4.5%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 22,151 persons (37.7%).

    The Census reported that 58,035 people (98.7% of the population) lived in households, 122 (0.2%) lived in non-institutionalized group quarters, and 672 (1.1%) were institutionalized.

    There were 20,558 households, out of which 7,199 (35.0%) had children under the age of 18 living in them, 8,782 (42.7%) were opposite-sex married couples living together, 3,931 (19.1%) had a female householder with no husband present, 1,486 (7.2%) had a male householder with no wife present. There were 1,085 (5.3%) unmarried opposite-sex partnerships, and 104 (0.5%) same-sex married couples or partnerships. 5,142 households (25.0%) were made up of individuals and 1,921 (9.3%) had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.82. There were 14,199 families (69.1% of all households); the average family size was 3.39.

    The population was spread out with 13,410 people (22.8%) under the age of 18, 5,353 people (9.1%) aged 18 to 24, 16,656 people (28.3%) aged 25 to 44, 15,086 people (25.6%) aged 45 to 64, and 8,324 people (14.1%) who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 37.9 years. For every 100 females there were 92.6 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 89.8 males.

    There were 21,472 housing units at an average density of 3,660.8 per square mile (1,413.5/km˛), of which 9,852 (47.9%) were owner-occupied, and 10,706 (52.1%) were occupied by renters. The homeowner vacancy rate was 1.3%; the rental vacancy rate was 4.6%. 28,585 people (48.6% of the population) lived in owner-occupied housing units and 29,450 people (50.1%) lived in rental housing units.
    Note thats Gardena within her district. But its pretty representative for her district. You could go look up the crime statistics, voilent crime, etc for the district. Education, employment etc.

    Here what the hell:
    Gardena, CA Employment, Occupation and Industry - CLRSearch
    Gardena, California (CA) profile: population, maps, real estate, averages, homes, statistics, relocation, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, moving, houses, news, sex offenders
    Gardena Crime Statistics and Crime Data (Gardena, CA)
    Crime Rate Comparison: Detroit Vs. Gardena

    Aside from high robbery stats, Gardena is lower than most of the US by the national average on crime. It is a poor neighborhood, especially for Southern California. Very high latino and black population. Lots of absentee parents, sadly. Nowhere near the crime stats for say, Detroit. Gangbanger thing seems false on the surface Sawyer.

    Interesting stats, I may be over reacting to specific incidents but it begs the question, just who voted for this crazy lady and WHY?

    Wait a minute, that's one city in her district, what about the others, Inglewood for instance.

    Meh, dude I aint doing opposition research on her district I just took one city and ran with it. Inglewood looks a lot worse and Id bet it IS a lot worse. Not quite Detroit, but worse than national averages.

    Born and raised in LA here . Yes. If movies were anything to go by you'd think LA is nothing but drug dealers, doughnut eating cops and bridges crossing the river.

    Are you saying that the description in question is wrong? (your statement isn't what was described)

    It's mostly wrong like any other generalizing assertions about places you haven't lived in. LA has a lot of gang neighborhoods. However, for the most part, you wouldn't even be able to tell unless you know what a tag looks like. A lot of the violence has died down from what we saw in the early 90s and 80s because young kids today (15s-16s) aren't really ready to bang over a few bucks or drugs. Aside from that, drugs in LA are like drugs elsewhere. We have crackhouses like every major-mid sized city. We have hookers like everywhere else. However they're not the norm in any neighborhood or the main constituents in any neighborhood. Inglewood is bad, sure - in comparison to what? White trailer parks of the Midwest where you can find 40 sex offenders living amongst kids? 19 Mexicans living 7 to a room? It all depends on what you compare a certain part of LA to.

    From what I know of the 35th district and South Central(which is quite extensive), it's not really the worst of Cali. It's full of people who do what people in the middle of nowhere do. They get up to work, they beat their kids, they have cookouts and then they pass out drunk. My issue with Erod's comment is that such a comment would never really rise up if this was a white middle class neighborhood even though white people in middle class don't do less drugs, they don't prostitute themselves less (at least not the kids), they don't even do less ****ed up ****. There are more whites living in poverty in the US than there are blacks. However you'll never hear a hack like Erod say that said neighborhoods are full of junkies, whores, gang members etc. Why? Well, we all know why.

    You have an interesting view of us people in "fly over country". Talk about generalizations, sheeesh. You watch to many movies, Hollywood doesn't like us much you know, we are not Deliverance.
