On Monday, Jan. 25, 2010, The Times launched a new version of the Homicide Report. You have arrived at the old blog.

Readers can no longer post new comments on this site, but we encourage you to join the conversation on our new site. The updated Homicide Report features an interactive map and searchable database of the more than 2,600 homicides in L.A. County since January 2007, when Times' reporter Jill Leovy first started this blog with the goal of covering each one.

Comments prior to Jan. 26 will, at least for now, remain archived here, with links provided in the new database.

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail homicidereport@latimes.com, and we will do our best to respond.

WE NEED TO HELP CHANGE THE MIND SET AND OFFER SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE AND SELF REWARDING, UNTILL THEY LEARN TO CREATE A LIFE OF THEIR OWN, THEY'ER JUST LEFT IN LINE TO COPY THE ONE'S AHEAD OF THEM. CHANGE IS POSSIBLE

When large ammounts of money can be made illegally no one will listen to reason,there is no loyality no respect no racial pride or togetherness, the fact that neighborhoods and quality of life is falling apart should be enough to stop this madness,but no one cares.someone needs to stand up and speak out.Im tired of black men being their own worst enemy,Any young black man should be glad and proud to see another black,because there want be any left at this rate. Where are the Slausons or the Black Panthers when we need them more than ever.

Lil Train, shouldnt you also ask where are the elected officials that do absolutely nothing year after year after year?

Have they created the business conditions necessary to expand employment? Have they made a concerted effort to remove the sociopaths from society? Have they held the educational districts accountable?

Ask those questions next time you go to vote.

Rather than placing blame on the politicians, or chalking up the illegal activity to greed and the pursuit of money, how about placing the blame on the parents who FAILED to raise their young with sufficient ideals, ethics, RESPECT FOR OBEYING THE LAW, self accountability, etc., so that they are capable of being law abiding citizens even though lawlessness is happening all around them. The inability of these hoodlums to hold themselves accountable for their own actions precludes them from carrying on as a decent law abiding citizen that people are typically raised to be. You can point the finger to every person around you, point at every other person in this country, it will not matter a hill of beans in making a difference in the quality of life in the person laying blame on all around if this person not willing to be accountable themselves. That is just a natural fact.
