Long Beach is by far, the most corrupt city of all of OC & LA, in my experience.
Why didn't Sund just come out and say that if they didn't participate in this "lottery" and pay the "application fee" (extortion) they were going to be paying for it in the end anyway. Why they gotta screw people like that?
The bureaucracy of this city is so pathetic, I couldn't stand living there any longer, and HAD to move to back to my home turf...the OC.
Oh..and their police department and court systems are even more corrupt than OC's!
