local transient vandalizes Ralphs, both Hermosa and Redondo are ful lof hordes of so called transients which is a nice word for piece of excrement. They steal recyclables into the the hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, feel free to relieve themselves in back yards and I do not mean just No. 1, and in general hang in Redondo and Hermosa for one reason. BECAUSE THREE DAYS A WEEK THESE DO GOODER CHURCHES FEED THESE PIGS and what better deal is there?? Thats in between the recycling thievery in broad daylight right out of the blue bins in alleys and in front of houses. RUN THEM ALL OUT OF TOWN BY LOADING THEM ON BUSES AND dumping them in Eastern San Bernardino county where it is warm all year round. Thieves, drug dealers, living like the pigs they are on our streets and nothing is ever done because the cops feel sorry for them. They should, on the pensions they get for getting cats out of trees.

Transient is also a nice word for bum, As long as they don't smoke or get caught with any type off banned plastic the city just has another mixer at " American Junkie" looks around the room at each other and marvels at how wonderful everything is. It's all about " feel good " politics, then run over to the beach and stick your head in the sand.
