LAPD shootings up 29% so far this year. This is the third time in 7 days that someone has attempted to murder an LAPD officer!! Maybe some local agency officers can shed some light on what's happening. All of my sources have dried up since I retired. http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2011/08/25/lapd-officer-possibly-injured-in-south-la-shooting/ Condolences to the officer!
