Venice Boardwalk = Gangster town. If you're a tourist don't go here at night.

Los Angeles county has become such a dangerous place, you never know what the next person is capable of, freeway shootings, road rage, shooting at law enforcement, gangs, drugs, AK-47s, marijuana dispensaries, school dropouts, dead beat dads, and unfit mothers, sex stores, auto shops, fast food, low budget doctors, barber shops, and bus stops. law offices and pharmacies, Poverty and insanity.

Cali is for sure a melting pot, just don't know what its going to taste like when the vision of it is finally done.

Why were the identities not released? Victim I can understand, but the Assailant?

Just Venice Beach as usual.

Venice Beach at night - Swat Squad needed. Venice Beach during the day, take your dog with you as long as it's not after Memorial day thru Labor Day, so as not to upset the tourists. (and you might even meet some nitwit who would give your $10,000 CASH for your pupper as I was - no sale though) I went to Venice High School, this is why I explain to people that "I can't read or write", but I can sure cuss you out and kick you where you'll be squirming and screaming for a couple of hours. Of course, after all that we'll chant and reach Nirvana. Fun times, I love Venice.
