A little more information

The two main activities in my life: Helping the hungry in the late hours of the night and helping guitar players sound better one amp at a time.

I always try to remember that in order to do good one has to take action and actually do something.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I have watched the city and Southern California change for well over half a century.

Crime during a single week downtown



Last week I received my seventh paramedic call slip for the year.  Not too bad considering the crime in the area I walk many evenings each week.

Four of the seven days of last week's crimes are shown in the above map.  There will be one more violent crime to the list released next week.  Thankfully that particular crime was interrupted and things ended up better than they might have.

 Before anybody gets concerned over me I want to state that I was not the intended victim of the crime.  I just happened to be in the area when the crime was in progress and stepped in to do what I could to help.  There were no other options other than to walk away.  My friends know that is not how I am wired.

Thanks to the L.A.P.D. and their sense of humor.  Some of you know what I mean.  For those that do not it is not all that important.

The list below is for just one week of crime in one area of downtown.  If you think teachers are underpaid add our law enforcement folks on the street to that category.










Heading down San Julian Street.  Some consider this the most violent street in Los Angeles

A few seconds before lights and siren were turned on
