2 days, 2 victims to cop violence. I don't know what Lee Baca and Bill Bratton are telling their gang, I mean officers, but with the recent arrests and shootings they have been committing it is definitely not good.

And yet to you, the cops are guilty until proven innocent, and even after that.

Funny that those who complain about some imaginary "police state" are so often the ones the cops need to keep a closer eye on.

These badge toting killers need to be off the streets or at Chipotle, this will bring the homocide numbers down considerably.

Not sure where you're from, but LAPD has had a long history of crime and brutality against the residents. Don't believe me, then you were asleep during the riots and have probably never experienced such anger and frustration at the so-called system. There's nothing funny about those who complain, because as I recall that is how the history of our country began.

Your point of view will be respected, but bear in mind where L.A. has been.

I was in the area at the time (actually out for a run and I was right next to the police station). I heard screams at first, a woman and a man. Then I heard 4 gunshots. Within about 15 seconds the police were running out of the station into squad cars. The shooting was about a block from the West LA station.

I've been in Los Angeles for the past twenty years so no, I don't believe you.

I also don't believe my point of view just as I don't respect yours. The difference between us is that I'm more honest about it.

I also think there most certainly *is* something funny about those who do nothing but complain. It's as if you expect to be taken seriosuly. To me, that's funny.

In all 3 of your point attempts, you made little to no sense whatsoever.

How can you say you are in L.A., especially for that length of time, and still have that point of view? The riots are a permanent scar and punctuation of what we residents have endured, and if you want state that people complain and do nothing, then try remembering back to the May Day Melee, where even Chief Bratton came out publicly stating how his PD's actions were inexcusable.

The city has spoken for itself over the years about police brutality so think what you wish. There's a long line of history to contradict what you have said thus far.

This is the second police-involved shooting within a 2 block radius in the past year and a half.(I live on the same block that the shooting took place and heard the gunshots and desperate screams as well). Notice that in both cases, the police were responsible for the deaths. It seems that as long as the police aren't involved, no murders will take place in this seemingly nice neighborhood that I call home. But regardless of your opinion, what I want to know is who they were looking for all night with the choppers if the suspect was dead???

I merely made sense you don't care for, and I will always think what I wish with or without your permission.

I can say I am in L.A. and have that point of view because (1.) it's true, and (2.) I am able to think for myself, again with or without your permission. I do not subscribe to the victim mentality so many like yourself enjoy/wallow in.

Yes, the riots are a permanent scar. More rioters and looters should heve been inured (how tragic), arrested, and sent to prison for lengthy terms. Those idiots who called the riots an "insurrection" deserve whatever happens to them. They are, of course, beyond help so you'll understand if I don't really care about them.

Bratton is an embarrassment to the LAPD. Then again, he's Villaragosa's boy. Another embarrassment.

My guess is that you won't agree with me.

Typical idiot who blames the cops before even a single fact is determined.

are you talking about the Rodney King Riots? why don't you ask the person that rodney robbed with a crow bar at a supermarket if he deserved what he got and how about what the camera didn't catch the high speed chase and him not doing what the police asked him to do and resisting arrest and so as you say people were frustrated with the system so beating Reginald Denny or burning and looting innocent peoples business was their response. ignorant vermin is what they were and are of course they were frustrated with the system because most have had lots of run ins with the police etc. because they are the dregs of the earth and commit crimes etc..

A man attempted to rape me in my home when I was 14 years old. The PIGS took my statement and then had the effrontry to ask ME WHAT HAD I DONE TO BRING IT ON. Yes it was 1964 but nothing has really changed. You speak of the vermin HOW dare you! Did you not see the Koreans shooting from their roof tops? FOOL you and I know that if the people shooting had been black or Hispanics from the roof tops the LAPD helicopters would have shot them down. What about the dirty cops of the Rampart division planting evidence et al. If you have so much hate, join the military and go kill for your country! You are really scum

Complain all day but unless your patrolling streets and fighting the worst this city has all your moans and comlaints about your brave fellow citizens in uniform seem pretty shallow. I know for a fact the bigger dirt bag you are the more you dislike the police.
