    • John HiggleBOTTOM:(with KY): SCV has & is one of the safest cities in the USA!! Definitely not social economic (poor/lazy/resistant/non-assimilation) creatures that inhabit other cities!! Your precious area of CalabASSESES are full of overpaid movie/film/music sheep that made it extremely big, with little talent, just the Union & sleeping around connections, that decent hardworking Americans don’t depend on to make their lives prosperous !! Real class??!, because you show off diamonds, Mercedes, BMWs, etc., obviously, you’re very shallow!! SCV schools are at the top of proper education, without spending our hard earned taxes on private schools! You and your ilk must have voted for Newsom, Garrcity, Bonin, Prop. 47 & 57 and AB 109!! Your anarchy will not survive!! Please move to Russia!!
