Watching the Riots

I posted this last night over on ‘Live Shots’ so if you get the chance leave a comment over there. I basically fell asleep watching this stuff and today was working on a ton of stories in the office. You are going to like em! In the meantime, here was my LiveShots post:
At 11pm on a Sunday I would normally already be fast asleep in preparation for the coming week and also due to the fact that we work on east coast time, so usually an early rise. Instead I am monitoring local coverage of the small riots and skirmishes that are ongoing in downtown Los Angeles after the Lakers nabbed their 15th championship in franchise history, that of course includes the Minneapolis days. Also, thanks to technology, I have the LAPD scanner going on my computer. Currently almost every call comes from a unit that has arrested looters. A shoe store, a gas station, even a bus was attacked. Having said that, the riots are not as bad as the last time the team won and for that matter nothing in the neighborhood of the big riot here in the early 90’s when I was in college.

  1. Why do they like to riot so much in LA?
    It’s crazy, no point to it. We should send them to Tehran so they can do some good for a change 🙂

  2. Sounds like what goes on in Iran but the difference is that in LA they are not trying to overthrow the leadership of LA 😉

  4. I never could understand why people celebrate sports victories by rioting or damaging property. I think some will use any excuse to break the law.

  5. Welcome back Avi. Sounds like you’ve been busy.

  6. Michelle, Michael, and 2 Yorkies are leaving this morning. It was a great visit and I will miss them.
    I will keep busy with laundry and house cleaning.

    Say, you wouldn’t happen to be interested in an Internship while you are at Uni, would you?

    The Long War Journal is looking for two interns to assist with special projects and interns to track developments in Israel and North Africa. Email Bill Roggio for details.
