The Harvest is Great and the Workers are Few
Published May 8, 2008

They say that pressure makes the best diamond so that it can shed light in all directions. So I have a great amount of respect for Janice Hahn who was recently on Fox defending the efforts of gang intervention and prevention. Although I don’t know the councilwoman that well I had to come to her defense concerning her most recent encounter with a reporter from Fox who is not worth mentioning by name. This reporter has always hated poor people and others who are here in the inner city trying to fight this monster called Gang Violence.

He had the nerve to try and humiliate the poor councilwoman with his crafty business of dividing the Black and Brown with his racist segments that don’t reflect the thinking of people on the streets or the mothers of some of the murdered children that are left to mourn the death of their children after this reporter puts one of his if-it bleeds-it-leads segments on the air. As most of my readers know I was an award-winning reporter for several years over at Fox news. Battling it out with this reporter about the ripple effect that his segments have on our community and the children.

I would beg him for example not to show the segment on the so-called war between two races of people. And he would just disregard every thing that I told him and just do it any way. Well as you can see he is still up to his old tricks showing things and people who don’t reflect the work that we do out here in these streets.

How can he allow his brain to just make up things about a community that he knows nothing about? It is almost like he is the hidden hand that ignites rage in our poor people. Someone should applaud Hahn for even trying to tolerate this reporter and his true dedication to helping promote more division on the streets. I have seen this guy do a story on my Brown brothers who he called the Mexican Mafia in which they were sedated and flown to some strange places away from their families.

He even once showed some Hispanics hanging a monkey from a porch and that was the lighting rod that struck the hood concerning the so-called race war, which is more like a space war in my opinion because it was already crowded before we had an immigration problem. But back to the segment that aired on the news concerning some people in the world of entertainment. Once footage gets to the edit bay and it is sliced and diced people will get the short end of every thing that was being said. Reporters like him always try and find someone who can’t articulate their position after years of self hate and degradation then the reporter will allow them to do and say any thing that they want on camera.

This so-called reporter doesn’t live by the same code of conduct as we do and he doesn’t have the same good intentions that our councilwoman has concerning the stopping of the killing between tribes. If we don’t stop this evil messenger now he will strike again. I commend Janice Hahn for her efforts towards trying to help some of the brothers who are in the hood trying to do the right thing only to have someone with bad intentions undermine the efforts of our council people that are trying to defend the honor of this great city. This whole plot is to undermine the understanding that the street gangs are getting with one another and to protect a couple of bad cops out to prey on the poor. Now they are jobless and stripped of power so they are mad and want to take it out on a small group of people who are putting their lives on the line. Janice you are a hero in our book out here in the world of Gang Intervention and prevention and we support your efforts towards saving lives.

Janice Hahn you are one strong woman with a lot of courage keep fighting for the poor.
