"Thirty-four people were shot in Los Angeles in the last week, and 23 of the shootings were concentrated within a 'remarkably small area'"

Described as "typical" gang on gang violence.

Speaking of crime, a new Houston ordinance requires businesses to install security cameras and turn footage over to police:

City Council passed the new ordinance in a 15-1 vote Wednesday. The mandate applies to all bars, nightclubs, sexually-oriented businesses, convenience stores and game rooms inside city limits .... Those businesses will be forced to hold security footage for 30 days and turn it over to police within 72 hours of their request. 


At-Large Council Member .... a former Houston police officer, was the lone nay vote .... He said the onus on businesses to install cameras is unfair and also believed the measure doesn't go far enough to reduce crime.

The vote came over the objection from the American Civil Liberties Union, which sent a letter to council members this week claiming the move was unconstitutional
