Valerie Shaw is a public menace -- re: Satire on Garvanza Skatepark

May 21st

Valerie Shaw is a public menace.

I deplore the fact that she has used the Los Angeles Community Policing site as a forum to insult anyone who has ever lost their young son or daughter to violence.

I found no humor in her tasteless and heartless "satire" regarding building a cemetery for youth on the proposed Garvanza skate park site.

Where does her son fit in: a black male between the ages of 12-24? She must be aware of the statistics for young black men in Los Angeles.

She also states that she came up with this idea while driving home from the meeting. Perhaps she should have been arrested for DUI.
