The name this city was given was more appropriate then its name givers may have realized. I lived in LA for 7 years and this street where this happened is a street I walked down everyday for those 7 years. The building in the background across the street is a building many of you are familiar with and do not realize because it is shown in almost every movie that is shot in the city of Los Angeles. I am still in shock that this happened and shows the severity of the fear and civil unrest in the streets of LA. I heard of these things happening on Hollywood Blvd and various other parts of Los Angeles, but this is the first time I have ever seen it happen on this particular street. The building they are in front of is the Social Services building where they cater to the homeless and impoverished families to assist with food and other forms of assistance.
