New Murals At Northeast Station (Video)

The artwork by 15 youths is aimed at the LAPD's anti-gang initiatives.

The LAPD Northeast Community Station unveiled two new murals painted by a group of 15 youths Tuesday in an effort to acknowledge and support “the community pride and artistic expression” of some youths at a high risk of joining gang-related activities in the Northeast Division.

At a well-attended news conference outside this nerve center for 21 police stations stretching from Hollywood to Eagle Rock and the 134 freeway to downtown, Capt. Bill Murphy paid tribute to the murals' artists and their mentors. Murphy also thanked the Adolescent Medicine Division at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the office of City Council President Eric Garcetti for partnering with the police station in the mural project.

The murals, measuring 21 feet by 16 feet, depict such landmarks of the Northeast Division as Griffith Park and the L.A. Zoo. Mounted on panels, the murals grace the front wall of the police station on San Fernando Road, where a third mural depicting the iconic Eagle Rock, among other neighboring landmarks, was painted by youths in 2010.

I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://BuzzSave.com
