Blogging Death in LA

by on December 23, 2007 at 8:23 pm in Travels | Permalink

The LATimes has a blog, The Homicide Report, that covers murders in LA.  Here is one entry:

Timothy Johnson, 37, a black man, was shot multiple times at 939 E.
92nd Street in Watts at about 3:23 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 25, and died at
the scene. Police officers had received a "shots fired" call and found
him. He had been visiting friends in the area.

He had gone to a party that night, then had stopped on his way home
to socialize with friends outside. His shooters came by walking or
driving. He was hit multiple times. When officers arrived, he was
alone, dead on the ground, and the people who had been outside with him
had disappeared. A pit-bull puppy chained in the yard was curled on his

The comments begin as you might expect from families and friends.

… The life of an African American Man in LA has proven to be a fight
till the death. I am struggling now as I sit here looking at your
picture. All the years we spent growing up together, supporting each
other and just loving one another. I Love you!! You were my cousin by
birth but my brother at heart.

Love Kim

but then a darker story is revealed:

To all the people speaking glowing words about this man … im sure
some of you know and for those that dont, this man was a killer and it
was known by LAPD that he has blood on his hands. Trust me he got what
he deserved and what i prayed for. He now has to meet GOD face to face
and face the people that HE has killed

Many entries excerpted in the LATimes can be found here, all of the comments (start at the bottom and work up) are here.

The Watts neighborhood is quite a vibrant, ethnic community.

2 Alex Tabarrok December 23, 2007 at 10:51 pm

FYI, note that the police repeatedly beg on the blog for witnesses to come forward. The no snitch culture is the subject of much discussion.

3 Raul December 23, 2007 at 11:24 pm

“no snitch culture” or perhaps “self preservation”?

4 Steve Burton December 24, 2007 at 12:35 am

Indeed, Billare. One could hardly imagine anything more vibrant, or more ethnic, than Watts.

5 bjk December 24, 2007 at 12:41 am

Like in Iraq, once the ethnic cleansing is finished, violence should go down.

6 Sam December 24, 2007 at 3:31 am

That was a little too dark Tyler. And what was up with the executioner print too? These went above the fold because…?

Here in Baltimore, Thug Inc. (not officially a real corporation), just released their second installment of Stop Snitchin. Stop Snitchen 2, which is probably available on YouTube. It is a good way to begin to see (but probably not understand), the culture of violence that exists in many cities. This culture his being handed down to generations, and people actually want to be a part, and think its cool.

That should have been “higher density” of course.

9 dobedo December 25, 2007 at 7:11 pm

This article explains a lot about why people do not come forward

Unfortunately, this problem is not confined to New Jersey. Here in San Francisco we have the same problem.

If relatively wealthy places like New Jersey and San Francisco can’t protect witnesses, imagine what it’s like in poorer jurisdictions.
