Imprisoned in Rancho Cucamonga?

The head of the city of L.A.’s public housing agency is in hot water after evicting nine tenants in retaliation for their participation in a protest on his front lawn — in Rancho Cucamonga.

The L.A. Times story on the dispute includes a photo taken by housing chief Rudolf Montiel through his RC window of the mob on his lawn. Nice to see the Times publish a photo from Rancho Cucamonga, even if it was shot by a city bureaucrat.

Oh, and you have to love the quote by L.A. Councilwoman Janice Hahn, reacting to the assertion by Montiel (who is paid $400,000 a year) that his family was virtually imprisoned in their home while the protest went on.

Hahn said: “The fact that Rudy and his family were imprisoned in their million-dollar home…. I don’t know why that is so terrible, to be imprisoned in your own home. It’s not like they had him held captive somewhere else.”

I guess that qualifies as a compliment to the RC lifestyle.
