Along the border of East Los Angeles and Little Tokyo, where the Los Angeles River flows down to become a part of the big sandy in Long Beach, an astonishing epic of Boyle Heights love and hatred boiled up in the closing half of the last decade to leave behind it a trail of graves and burned out homes. Oldtimers who remember the bloody vendetta between Pedro Hatfield and Takeshi McCoy speak of it as the most infamous feud in our history, and still to this day, lower their voices and glance over their shoulders to make sure nobody is within spitting distance who might overhear and get offended, for that eerie feeling never has quite died out that the war will some day start anew.
