Stephen Blackmoore’s L.A. Noir has been posting regularly about the current Los Angeles crime scene since last November. Think of it as a virtual highlight reel from the local police blotter… with some dark humoured commentary, or a modern day version of the 1947 Project.
In the last few days, Blackmoore has posted about a local “bring your weapon to school day” promoted via MySpace, a father and son both getting shot in Long Beach, coverage of mystery writers at the LA Times Festival of Books, and the mugshot for a wanted rape suspect (pictured) he accurately describes as being “butt ugly”.
The blog updates pretty much daily, so a worthy addition to any L.A. blog roll.
