R I P Maywood Police Department - Ten - 7.
This transmission is the last 4 minutes of the Maywood Police Department. Maywood is a suburb of Los Angeles and was at one time "Leave it to Beaver" community. Over the years, the original citizens moved away and it became a 98% Mexican (predominately illegal) community of renters. The taxes of the properties were still being assessed at the rates of the owners from the 1940s. The population exploded from one family per household to as many as 5 families per household. 5 times the population put a huge strain on the infrastructures of police, fire, paramedics and schools without taxes to support it. All but one of the city officials were Mexican, just one generation from the border, and sympathetic to the "poor immigrants." They refused to pass laws overseeing the percentage of homes rented or number of person allowed in one home. The city went bankrupt and fired all of its employees. Now, the County of Los Angeles is compelled by law to provide those services. The citizens of other communities in Los Angeles County are now footing the bill for police, fire, and schools, sewage, water, parks, street repair. The county is already stretched to its limits because Maywood is one of at least a dozen other suburbs whose infrastructure is crumbling because of the same issues. The Maywood employees lost their jobs, benefits, and retirements.
You'll here the radio code "10-7" That is the code when a patrol unit goes out of service. You'll hear the calls signs of "Lincoln" and "Charlie." Those are codes for Lieutenants and Captains. The dispatcher is a Los Angeles County Sheriff dispatcher who read the history of the Maywood police Department.
In essence the back was broken. American citizens lost good jobs that every American citizen dreams of. Supporters of immigration say that immigrants only take away jobs that Americans don't want to do. Really? Listen to the voices of the officers signing off for the last time. These employees were not tomato pickers.
Do you think it could happen to your community? You bet your butt!
Be sure to vote this November.
