LAPD chief praises police response to Echo Park Lake protests, but activists point to violence, injuries

The chief of the Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday praised the police response to protests around Echo Park Lake two weeks ago that were touched off when the city moved out dozens of homeless people encamped there for about a year. Speaking to the police commission and reporters, Chief Michel Moore said he thought the Thursday, March 25 operation went well. It left two people injured, saw officers firing less-lethal rounds at some protesters, and led to around 185 arrests, including brief...

DeMarcus Cousins can bring Clippers more toughness, perspective

LOS ANGELES — When it comes to NBA stars, former Clippers guard Landry Shamet is fast becoming something akin to the Kevin Bacon of the league. And there might be substantially fewer than six degrees separating so many of the league’s big names and Shamet, who’s been on three teams in three seasons, and so far has teamed with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons (in Philadelphia), Kawhi Leonard and Paul George (in L.A.), and James Harden, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin (i...

Marine Corps launches second, broader investigation after AAV training accident

The Marine Corps is launching another, broader investigation after the July 30 training exercise in which eight marines and a sailor died, this time looking at how preparations for deployment might have contributed.

Angels pitcher Aaron Slegers prefers polish to power

ANAHEIM ― At 6-foot-10, Angels pitcher Aaron Slegers is an inch shorter than the tallest player in major league history. Among active big leaguers, he’s first in height, first in the alphabet and, perhaps surprisingly, far from the hardest thrower in the game. Slegers’ fastball regularly hits 91-92 mph on the radar gun. He sometimes begins at-bats by throwing a slider or a changeup in the mid-80s. The right-hander is averse to strikeouts by today’s standards, averaging fewer than one an inning a...

Concert venues, theme parks won’t rush to open when COVID-19 tiers go away June 15

The Glass House talent buyer Jon Halperin says staff at the Pomona concert venue have been video conferencing every week or two since the pandemic closed its doors, and lately owner Paul Tollett has focused on the fall to reopen. Despite the announcement by California officials on Tuesday that the state will do away with the color-coded COVID tiers on June 15 and allow most businesses to return to pre-pandemic operation, it’s not likely to change plans for The Glass House, Halperin says. “We had...

Study: California’s licensed cannabis shops aren’t selling to minors

California’s licensed marijuana shops are doing an excellent job at preventing sales to minors, according to a first-of-its-kind study commissioned by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That means the industry is living up to a key promise advocates made when voters legalized cannabis for adults 21 and older nearly five years ago. “Licensed marijuana retailers are clearly keen to follow the rules,” said Angela Eichelberger, a research scientist with the Insurance Institute who authored ...

Different Max Muncy returns to Oakland with Dodgers

Considering the outcome, it should be easy for Max Muncy to say he has no hard feelings about being released by the Oakland A’s in March 2017. But it’s more complicated than that. “I can’t lie. It’s very satisfying to get three hits against your old team,” said Muncy, who was 3 for 4 with two runs scored in the Dodgers’ 10-3 victory over the A’s on Monday night at (in its latest iteration of naming rights) RingCentral Coliseum. “I don’t know if I can necessarily describe exactly how it feels.

Alarmed by anti-Asian incidents, LA County leaders seek to build fund to study hate

Faced with increasing racist incidents reported against Asian-Americans, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved an effort Tuesday, April 6, that could lead to a county fund that would support research into hate and xenophobia. With the board’s unanimous vote, the L.A. County Equity and Diversity Fund — if ultimately found feasible by county human relations officials — would start with $1 million in county seed money. It would then look to tap into philanthropic partnerships to buil...
