    Deonte Lee Murray, the man accused in the ambush shooting of two Los Angeles County deputies in Compton earlier this month, has been charged with attempted murder, prosecutors announced Wednesday. Murray, 36, was taken into custody after a lengthy standoff three days after the deputies were shot, though his arrest was unrelated to the attack on the deputies, Sheriff Alex Villanueva initially said. The deputies, a 31-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man, were shot in the face and head while sitting in their patrol car near the Compton metro station. Both underwent surgery and have been released from the hospital....

    A battle over the integrity of the election process is coming to a head this week in Lynwood, where the City Council has defied the Los Angeles County registrar-recorder and refused to set a date for a recall election targeting four of its members. The registrar-recorder's office concluded in June that there were enough signatures on recall petitions to force a special election for the four officials, two of whom were recently indicted on public corruption charges. But when Lynwood's elected city clerk tried to certify the recall petition, the City Council voted to strip her of all election duties,...

In one case, prosecutors said Pedroza charged $1,500 on a city credit card to pay for an exotic...

    LOS ANGELES - A former mayor of suburban Lynwood was convicted Tuesday of federal charges involving the funneling of millions of dollars in city contracts to a sham consulting company he secretly controlled. Paul Richards, 49, was found guilty of conspiracy to commit extortion, fraud, money laundering and depriving the public of honest services. Prosecutors accused Richards of arranging to have more than $2.5 million in city contracts awarded to a consulting company, Allied Government Services, that listed his sister, Paula Cameo Harris, as its president. Last week, Richards denied wrongdoing and told jurors he did not disclose his ties...

    Mexican drug cartels operating in cities in the U.S. are buying up legitimate businesses to launder money and using some of the proceeds to win local mayoral and city council seats for politicians who can shape the policies and personnel decisions of their police forces, according to Rep. Tom Tancredo "The Tijuana-based Felix drug cartel and the Juarez-based Fuentes cartel began buying legitimate business in small towns in Los Angeles County in the early 1990s," "They purchased restaurants, used-car lots, auto-body shops and other small businesses. One of their purposes was to use these businesses for money-laundering operations. Once established...

    “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough began his segment this morning, by asking Al Sharpton what his message to the “25 million peaceful protesters” about the remarks by “those people, who were chanting “they hope that they died?” Al Sharpton, the guy who openly called for killing cops in 1992, told Scarborough that the message of the BLM agitators is, “We are not anti-police, and we are certainly not for killing or shooting police.” He quickly switched gears, making himself and BLM the victims, saying, “We are there saying police should not be wrongfully shooting or killing civilians, particularly in the...

    Jose Ometeotl, the city manager of Lynwood, California suggested that the shooting of two Los Angeles County deputies over the weekend was not surprising and even indicated that it was payback for how law enforcement has treated the community.

    Ever since the initial passage of California's Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) back in September 2019, the Recording Academy has been fighting for a much-needed amendment to exempt music makers from the bill's sweeping intentions to regulate gig-economy workers.. At its annual Entertainment Law Initiative back in January, the Academy discussed the issue during a panel and has continued to work with music industry stakeholders to press for the correction. At long last, the amendment exempting the music community from the unintended consequences of AB5 was officially signed into law by California Governor Gavin Newsom on Sept. 4. This came just...

The group says that certain positions that BLM holds, like “defund the police,” have proved “uncomfortable” for the league. This move comes as two police...
