BRATTON'S TAKE ON POT: LA's unabashed police chief, William J. Bratton, weighed in today on the Obama administration's directive that federal agents stop raids in states where medical marijuana is legal. "I think that the policy of the federal government at this time is unfortunate. I think the policy of this state is Looney Tunes," Bratton said at a Parker Center news conference. "They pass a law, then they have no regulations as to how to enforce the darn thing and, as a result, we have hundreds of these locations selling drugs to every Tom, Dick and Harry," Bratton said.

WINDSHIELD VANDALISM: In southern Orange County, two teens went on a vandalism spree last night, shooting out the windshields of at least 41 parked cars in an upscale Foothill Ranch neighborhood, officials said. Authorities believe that the teenagers used a pellet gun to shatter the car windshields as they randomly cruised residential streets. Last Saturday night, 10 other cars in the same area were vandalized.  Police hope that video from a home surveillance camera will help them identify the suspects.
