I know that a lot of blogs in LA spend serious time bashing the LA Times for one reason or another but this piece, “Freeway Shootings Share Similar Traits but Seem to Be Unrelated” is a real stand out gem. Seriously, listen to the information they are hemorrhaging with this article:
“Some of them are gang-related, some of them are road rage and some of them we will never know the motive until we catch the suspect,” said CHP Assistant Chief Art Acevedo.
Did you get that? So, the shootings are either gang-related or not, either road rage related or not, or maybe other stuff that they don’t know anything about.
But don’t think I’m trying to skew this by pulling one quote out of context, here’s a few more quotes are are really filler because they don’t say a thing about anything:
“We’re still working on it, but I have not had many leads on it at this point,” said Riverside Police Det. Ron Sanfilippo…
Tustin police detectives also said they have few leads. “We’ve got a whole lot of nothing going on in all of them,” said Sgt. Mark Hein.
Thanks so much for the awesome reporting, that’s some KCAL quality insight right there.
