When I lived in Downtown LA, my car was broken into for a computer monitor that was worth less than replacing the broken window. Generally, LA is a shitty place to live and it's filled with shitty people. Of course, there are always exceptions but it's by far the worst place I've lived -_-;;
You know, that is exactly what everyone I know who has ever lived in L.A has told me. That it is a terrible, awful place to live. I know 7 Americans in my Medical Class who have been to L.A, and they've never had anything good to say about it.
