The man who disarmed the gunman who had just shot and killed at least 10 people Saturday night in Monterey Park and injured several others was hit in the face and bashed on the head several times in a life-or-death struggle to wrestle the weapon away from the assailant.

“My first thought was I was going to die here, this is it,” Brandon Tsay told Good Morning America on Monday.

Tsay’s family runs the Lai Lai Ballroom and Studio in Alhambra. which was hosting a Lunar New Year celebration on Saturday night. Toward the end of the event, the 26-year-old says he heard the unexpected sound of the studio’s door opening. He then saw a man with a gun walk inside, who has now been identified by law enforcement as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran. He arrived at the Lai Lai Ballroom about 20 minutes after he’d fatally shot 10 people during a rampage at Star Dance Studio in nearby Monterey Park.

01/23/2023

The mandate comes in response to the flag’s divisive symbolism, as some say it represents support for law enforcement while others argue it’s become a symbol of white supremacy and far-right ideology.

Moore has also prohibited any use of the thin blue line flag on officer uniforms in any form or as bumper stickers on vehicles.

However, any non-public property like an officer’s personal workspace or personal vehicle will still be allowed to display the flag.

Moore's statement:

“Earlier this week there was a member of the public that complained of a ‘Thin Blue Line Flag’ being displayed over the front desk of Rampart Station.

The complaint stems from their belief the symbol signifies support of extremist views such as those espoused by the Proud Boys and others. I directed to have the item taken down from the public lobby.

While I do not personally view the ‘Thin Blue Line Flag’ in the same manner as the community member and others, its display in our public lobbies can be divisive.

It’s unfortunate that extremist groups have hijacked the use of the ‘Thin Blue Line Flag’ to symbolize their undemocratic, racist, and bigoted views. Flags serve as powerful symbols with specific meanings.

The ‘Thin Blue Line Flag’ to me presents the honor, valor, dedication, and sacrifice of law enforcement to protect our communities. Tragically, that view is not universally held & others have been able to persuade the public it symbolizes racist, bigoted and oppressive values.

Given our lobbies should be places that people feel safe, free of political ideology, and welcoming, it remains our long-standing policy that only official items be displayed.

I understand the frustration some may feel on this issue with an accompanying sense of a lack of support of their dedication on my part. I’m mindful of the Los Angeles Police Protective League’s (LAPPL) expressed disappointment in my directive.

My commitment to you is unwavering as I strive each day to protect and serve you as well as the people of Los Angeles.”

The worst bloodbath in Los Angeles since 2008, a horrific act on what should have been a Lunar New Year celebration that left at least ten and as many as a dozens others wounded, was an act of domestic violence committed by angry gunman “looking for his wife,” a law enforcement source told LA Magazine.

“There is increasing evidence this was domestic violence,” the source said.

The bespectacled man who carried out one of the deadliest mass shootings in LA County history is believed to have taken his own life Sunday morning while on the run from the mass shooting at Star Dance Studio, a popular ballroom on West Garvey Avenue, which had been slated to host a neighborhood block party in honor of the Lunar New Year.

An attorney for rapper T.I. and his wife, Tiny Harris, greeted an Orange County federal jury this week with the proclamation: “It’s high time you meet the OMG Girlz.”⁠

Trial lawyer David Scheper showed up to court ready to deliver. Over the next 40 minutes, he told the eight jurors how Tiny and her daughter, Zonnique Pullins, built the girls’ music group “from literally a mom and daughter shop in 2009 into a national sensation, just a few years later,” only to have their likeness stolen by corporate toy designers, who profited tremendously.⁠

Scheper displayed photos of Zonnique and her friends, Bahja Rodriguez and Breeuna Womack, as the OMG Girlz, alongside dolls with matching hair and outfits and played music videos on courtroom TV screens, and described a 2017 reunion he said clearly inspired MGA Entertainment to start the line of dolls. The company’s toy, called the OMG Dolls, debuted under two years later.⁠

Rebecca Grossman was back in a Los Angeles courtroom on January 10, where a hearing over the socialite’s looming trial on murder charges for allegedly running over and killing 11-year-old Mark Iskander and his 8-year-old brother, Jacob Iskander, in September 2020 ended with a judge rescheduling the postponed proceedings for May.

In the gallery that Tuesday morning, a showdown brewing between the two sides in the crowded courtroom later spilled into the hallway outside, where a bailiff had to separate the two sides from congregating together in front of the public elevator at the Van Nuys courthouse.

It has been two years and four months since Grossman was arrested for the hit-and-run deaths of the two young brothers in Westlake Village. The long wait in the murder case has dragged on for over two years as multiple delays—from the Covid-19 court backlog, attempts to get a state appeals court to drop second-degree murder charges against Grossman, to the sudden death in 2022 of her lead defense attorney, Richard Hutton—are only arousing further ire in the community.

The years-long failure of Los Angeles politicians to address the homeless crisis was made stark to residents of Sherman Oaks, the affluent San Fernando Valley city of roughly 70,000, as the bodies of three unhoused people were discovered on its streets in just one week.

A woman believed to be between the ages of 50 to 60 was found dead in the shopping center off of the intersection of Moorpark Street and Sylmar Avenue on Wednesday, and the corpses of two men, one in his 60s and one in his 40s, were also found in the area this week, the L.A. County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office confirmed to LAMag. The woman and the man in his 60s both died of natural causes, while the third person’s cause of death is unknown.

From the instant the story broke, the José Huizar bribery and corruption scandal has been full of bombshells that detonate unpredictably and with a City Hall-shaking force. So it’s only fitting that what may be the last major development—the embattled former District 14 councilman has agreed to plead guilty to racketeering and tax evasion, and is likely facing a sentence of nine to 13 years—also burst on Thursday with not a word of advance notice.

“I understand the terms of this agreement, and I voluntarily agree to those terms,” Huizar states on the 24-page document signed and dated Jan. 18. He soon adds, “I am pleading guilty because I am guilty of the charges and wish to take advantage of the promises set forth in this agreement, and not for any other reason.”

Alec Baldwin and an armorer working on the troubled New Mexico set of the western film Rust will be charged with involuntary manslaughter in the accidental shooting death of Halyna Hutchins in 2021.

The Emmy-winning actor, a father of 7, and Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer who was responsible for weapons on the set, will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter, which could send each to prison for up to 18 months, New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies announced on Thursday morning.

“After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the ‘Rust’ film crew,” Carmack-Altwies said. “On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.”

01/19/2023

Tim McOsker spent much of 2022 doing what most people would consider a real grind. As a candidate for the 15th District City Council seat, he attended copious community meetings, backyard get-togethers, and neighborhood coffee meetings where he would detail his political vision and outline his platform and priorities—again and again. The simple goal was to persuade District 15’s voters to choose him, one resident at a time.

But that was just the start. He also paraded before a bevy of bodies seeking endorsements. Perhaps most grueling were the hours on the phone, asking friends and associates to contribute money toward his quest to replace Joe Buscaino, who after two terms was giving up the seat that represents Watts, San Pedro, Wilmington, and other neighborhoods.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah unveiled its Heroes of the Freedomsurrection monument installation at Century City Plaza on Friday, but the late night show’s correspondent Roy Wood Jr. is “surprised” the pop-up is starting its tour in a blue city. ⁠

“I hope it goes to Texas,” Wood told Los Angeles. “That’s where Ted Cruz is from and I think it’s one thing to showcase it in LA, but it’s another thing, all jokes aside, when you see everything that these people have said, and it is right here in front of you, like this is something to laugh at, but these are real things that people said, these are real things that people did, so to be able to see that in front of you, with no spin, no comments underneath it, nobody influencing extra ideology, it’s just their words versus your mind.”⁠

Wood Jr. added that he truly believes “logic will win” and thinks these monuments should reside where these “ideologies are permanented very deeply.”⁠

“I think Texas is one of those places,” he concluded.⁠

The installation pays “tribute to the heroes” most responsible for inciting the violent, anti-democratic riots of January 6th, 2021 including Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Tucker Carlson. Each six-foot-tall monument features a bronze plaque with an inscription detailing each figure’s part in fomenting the insurrection, with The Daily Show’s trademark humor infused throughout. ⁠

The Golden State has long prided itself on being at the vanguard of when it comes to making laws that have the rest of the country stumped, and this week one California court declared that, henceforth, certain bees are fish.

The Court of Appeal for California’s Third Appellate District in Sacramento ruled on Tuesday that four species of bees are now legally classified as fish when it comes to protecting the winged insects, WJW reports.

The Almond Alliance of California and other agriculture titans went to court against the California Fish and Game Commission to have it out over whether the agency can define certain bumblebees as fish—a category in the list of endangered species and threatened species in the California Endangered Species Act.

Apparently, the act protects only fauna labeled as “bird, mammal, fish, amphibian, reptile, or plant.”

As Tuesday’s ruling states, “The issue presented here is whether the bumble bee, a terrestrial invertebrate, falls within the definition of fish, as that term is used in the definitions of endangered species… threatened species… and candidate species.”

LA’s adored and admired outdoor cinematic experience, Cinespia, is collaborating with Amazon to studios to celebrate the fourth of July weekend in style. For the first time ever, they will feature three consecutive nights of firework shows under the stars at Hollywood Forever Cemetery to provide a brilliant backdrop for screenings of The Fast and the Furious, Purple Rain, and Ferris Bueller’s Day off.

“For the first time in Cinespia history, Angelenos will get to celebrate the 4th of July with three amazing nights of films and fireworks shows,” said Cinespia founder, John Wyatt. “Bring your best reds, whites, and blues to the screenings and enjoy an incredible weekend lineup of cinematic classics.”

For the entire weekend, Cinespia DJs will be bumping music to keep the block party alive and well. Attendees can feast on burgers and hot dogs alongside an ice-cold beer or glass of wine from the bar’s curated wine list. If any cinephiles present need to fulfill their sweet tooth, they can head over to the concession stand to do so. And of course, in signature fashion, they can swing by CInespia’s free photobooth to make memories forever.

The first screening will be The Fast and the Furious on July 2. Viewers can roll back the years to watch Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster crank up the action in the film that sparked the now ten-film collection and craze.

Next up is Purple Rain on July 3, starring none other than the ‘High Priest of Pop’ himself. Fireworks will fill the sky for this screening, as Prince rips away at his electric guitar in the funk-rock classic. As Cinespia notes, “Feel wily and free to dress in Prince-inspired fashions, from raspberry berets to Vanity 6 sexiness. Baby, you’re a star!”

The weekend wraps up on July 4, with the ‘80s classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Watch Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, and Mia Sara take a “sick day” that went down in history and got them in a bit of trouble along the way. Make sure you watch out for your dad’s Ferrari, you wouldn’t want it to slip away during the screening.
