Los Angeles kills a business because it is in a rough neighborhood

The LA police and zoning board take out a thirty years-old small business in a poor neighborhood, more or less because they can. It is frankly shocking and dispiriting.

Given this ridiculous approach to crime-fighting, who in their right mind would start a business in a poor neighborhood in Los Angeles?

  1. In the old days some eatery owners in rough neighborhoods gave free meals to cops. That reduced crime near the restaurants. Criminals didn't want to operate near police hangouts. In addition, the free meals eliminated harassment from the police department.

    Later, campaigns to eliminate petty police corruption made some neighborhoods more dangerous.
