The Grim Sleeper Serial Killer
"From at least as early as nineteen eighty five to at least as recently as two thousand seven a serial killer lonnie david franklin junior eventually dubbed the grim sleeper roam the streets of south central los angeles where he was born and raised targeting young and particularly vulnerable. Women this killer kidnapped raped beat typically shot his victims with a small twenty five caliber semiautomatic pistol often carried in his shirt pocket. He obsessively took photos of his victims. Both dead and alive both clothed and nude often sexually explicit positions saving them as trophies and keeping them carefully tucked away in the garage behind his home where he worked his youngest victim just fifteen years old not apprehended until two thousand ten. The grim sleeper roam the streets of south central for a quarter of a century incredible. He got away considering how careless he was this murders rather than carefully hiding the remains of victims in some heavily wooded body disposal site. He typically just toss him out of his old pinto an into some urban alley. The bodies are often discovered the next morning after he killed him and he almost always shot his victims. Water were still sitting inside his car. He left so much evidence he took photos of the victim shared them with any of his friends who wanted to see him not the best way to not get caught but no one tipped police off to him and he wasn't caught for so so long. Why how nhi no human involved and h. I was a term thrown around by some lapd officers originally investigating the murders in the mid eighties when the killings began and it was used because the victims were often sex workers or all assumed to be turning tricks on side at least an all or at least nearly all of them addicted to crack cocaine and there were black. The term crackhead was thrown around a lot and hooker. It was like the victims weren't seen as humans reviewed less than human. They were black. Crackhead hookers so who cares. Nhi no human involved so no real investigative priority given but this is not going to be some lapd blame game some apathy from the lapd only partially explains why lonnie was able to keep killing for so long.

The Secrets of Nonverbal Communication & Body Language
"So what does body language tell us. What what is it. We can decipher or not decipher. What specifically does it do. Well in my job is interrogator. I use it and attack. Full sense where i will. I'll ask questions. I know the answers to. And i'll see how that person reacts to those questions that i know they know the answers to and then i'll have questions that i know. They don't know the answers to questions. All about places i would make up even as i'm talking to them and we're getting ready to get started. I spent ten or fifteen minutes just talking to them and you get what's called a baseline when they're not nervous not being put on the spot and you see that you remember all the things how they acted when you ask them questions that you know they knew the answer to and they answered correctly and the ones you knew they didn't know the answer to and you you keep that in mind as a baseline for the way they behaved. Then when you get to the point where you're talking about what they're supposedly what they've supposedly done what they're suspected of doing as you speak with them then you can see how their body language changes. They may do things to to guard themselves. They may bring their their arms in closer to their chest for example. And that's what your brain does what it feels threatened. It'll it starts guard near your lungs and your heart and your stomach or they may be using. Water called adapters. At adapters things. These little repetitive movements people make that get rid of that built up stress tension or energy from the questioning is. They're trying as their thinking. Is there as they begin to worry about. Something stress builds for example. They may start Shaking their foot on the jiggling there on the ground or they may start rubbing their arm or their hands or they may just a little bit star biting the side of their mouth. Those are the things that you see those. These repetitive pacifying behaviors. Those that you know that person is under stress. It doesn't mean they're lying. It doesn't mean they're telling the truth it just means there's an issue there. There are no absolutes in body language just because someone scratches there knows. It doesn't mean they're they're lying and it doesn't mean they're telling the truth and most of the time their noses i've i've trained federal judges who thought if you look up into the lapd you're not telling the truth and we all know from studies now. That's not true at all not even a little

GOP Recall Candidate Larry Elder Aims to Help Voters ‘Connect the Dots’
"Welcome back. This is ed morrissey of hot air dot com filling in for hugh today and welcoming our great friend larry elder to the show. Give us a check in on the california recall effort and his gubernatorial run. Larry great to talk to you today to thank you for having me appreciate it. So what is going on in the campaign here. I mean you've really shaken things up here you've you i think reenergize the whole recall effort by jumping into this. And i'm i'm thrilled for your for the energy that you're bringing into this. How how are you seeing things out there in the campaign trail well so far so good the polls show that. I'm head of my republican rivals. But that really isn't the issue the issue is the first part of the battle is very simple. Do you want this man. Gavin newsom recalled it fifty percent plus one voted So the second question is whom do you want to replace him now unless fifty percent plus one says they want to re recall gavin newsom. It doesn't matter however republicans do and that's why i'm urging all of my republican rivals to keep your eye on the prize and the prize. If you have a nuisance surprised is the two point. Two million californians that signed the petition to get this guy out at least a quarter than it or independence and democrats. Who voted for him. Two years earlier the are angry about the corona virus mandates then only angry about the mandates are angry about the accuracy. You know he said up there that french laundry restaurant with the very people that drafted the mandates violating the mandates not wearing masks and that socially meanwhile his own two kids were enjoying in-person private education or at least slammed down education for everybody else in the state now the educational system already pretty bad especially for urban students seventy five percent of black boys believe it or not in california cannot read at state levels of proficiency and those levels. Ain't very high. Nearly half of third graders cannot read it they levels of proficiency and they lost a whole year of school learning three hundred thousand public school teachers. It is estimated by everybody. I talk to that. At least five percent of them are incompetent. That fifteen thousand teachers who are not be teaching now that we're the lapd there's roughly ten thousand officers lapd had. Let's assume five percent of them were bad. That's five hundred officers that are planting evidence or engaging in excessive force racially profiling. We wouldn't put up with it. We're putting up with fifteen thousand. They had teachers. Many of whom ended up In the inner city they're not in the west side not in the valley there in the inner city. That's why two thirds of black parents. According to a recent report i read do not want to send their kids back to the los angeles school district in the fall. They argue that the teachers end up in the schools that need them. The most and this is the teacher's union They are the largest funder of my opponent. Gavin newsom they adamantly opposed choice in school because they know that the teachers will not automatically be union members and they won't automatically get those dues. So i am an adamant. Adamant adamant proponent of choice in public school and my opponent is opposed to it.

Ah, and we. Meanwhile, the defense continues to focus on the change in, uh, Floyd. Excuse me in show Van's knee placement on the on George Floyd, saying at times that it appears that it was not on George Floyd's neck. But perhaps on his back at certain moments, this LAPD expert continued to say that he doesn't believe that makes a difference that even if it was on the back the position that George Floyd was in His hands behind his back, handcuffed created a risk even if it was on his back.

"lapd" Discussed on Hollyweird Paranormal
"Again and since then you clean your space. Yes good for you. Yup i mean. I'm going into that room and the size of his close very very big and i could tell like. Just the height of that mannequin. He's a big guy. So i could. I could feel a sense of intimidation so you guys carry a lot of their personal items like this is actually closed pants. Shirts jackets that they wore on that day in february of nineteen ninety-seven. Jeez and if you ever see the exhibit you'll notice that meals pretty tall and very large man based on the size of his clothes so the instantly think and believe that that could be him him but later on the investigation it kind of takes a bit of a wild turn and we soon find out that it may not be a meal after a introductions and even discussions about the museum in its paranormal association. We gather our equipment and prep for tore. Bob introduces himself. He is the chairman of the museum and enact a police officer who's ready for his retirement. And then i'm also greeted by. Who approaches me with a very interesting book is a book called. Lapd fifty three by james elroy and it goes over the most intense history of the lapd crime scenes of nineteen fifty three complemented with actual crime scene photos. She mentions a story a particular chapter in the book. That is labeled baby elroy. This story is actually connected to the first thing that you encounter when you enter the museum. It's the cells now to this chapter. It seems that a person by the name of manuel basil aka manny. the molester. h twenty. Six was a lizard like individual from lincoln heights. Lapd popped him on on street and avenue seventeen but it was the bystanders that i built him mauling poor fifteen year old girl. That girl then told lapd that many the molester tried to get her to smoke a reefer she refused. Manny beat her and tore her clothing and attempted to repair. Manny is then arrested booked and thrown into jail into one of the cells now the following day. Manny is then later found dead apparent. Suicide is even rumor that the lapd cops that book them were the ones that responsible for his death and made it look like a suicide now. Ever since then females who pass by his cell have heard what sounds like cat calling. They feel like they're being watched. They feel very uncomfortable and some have even claimed to hear heavy breathing. Bob goes into the story at the beginning of our tour. The museum a good on this hallway. And we have to seattle's these. Two sales are filming cells and she said that she gets comments from people and we'll get from all over system that there are always having issues when they go to kill presence or take a photo or something something. Mr sound and consistent. Well we didn't tell that we had somebody that had committed suicide over there to get those interesting effects but you have things charleston said we have a lot of stuff we have a. We have certain things from anything to do with their debt. We have all that stuff here. Those are not the public view so you can probably going to walk in the room. Were restored but let me take a look. Similar stuff is confidential and it's controlled by the attorney and so they don't want us to release certain photos. Of course we figured yeah. See if you can get something in there if so then we can yes. I must interject here a pardon. My french holy shit. We are going to be able to be in a room. Filled with actual evidence boxes evidence that were collected from these crime scenes. These infamous crime scenes of the charles manson lobby janka and sharon tate. Case along with the marilyn monroe case. This museum literally has everything especially ghosts. We wanna make sure that we were allowed to walk into someplace that we're not allowed so we just wanna to make sure that we don't step on anybody's speed. Yeah it is. Tell us where to go and we're not to go so we're excited to be here and it's a pleasure on very well. I'm going to interject here once more. After reviewing this audio think i may have come up with an mvp. I'm gonna play it real quickly and tell me if you hear it sounds like breathing and then a man mumbling but here it is a pleasure to pleasure on. This recording was actually next door to the cells.

"Molina Abdulah is the head of the Los Angeles. Glad matter but she grew up a few hours north in Oakland and was born in the seventies, even though still claim twenty nine, so don't let the math. I'll take it. Thank you. Melina is a mom and a professor of Pan African studies at CAL state I came of age in the nineties and. Kind of the height of the crack cocaine epidemic. That's the height of the war on drugs, the harassment of especially young black people by police was an everyday regular occurrence. I remember like every time I went on a date. We get pulled over. The question was just. How far would they take harassment so I, didn't have to become conscious through like some political mechanism. It was our lives as black people of my generation that there was always tension between black folks in police. And if you were young black, growing up and California's or really anywhere during the early ninety s, you remember the moment in Nineteen ninety-one when grainy video footage captured four LAPD, officers speeding rodney king during a traffic stop. We understood almost viscerally. The police were moving on behalf of someone who wasn't. That home videotape is shown around the world and is this moment when it's like okay, the? Aren't going to get out of it this time. We've had this experience of daily harassment and abuse and a year later. Two officers were acquitted. Ugly terrible situation all night long fires looting, going nuts, random beating attacks, and now the national guards may be ready to move in our chopper clipped. Welsh has been over the violence all night. We're GONNA. Go to him. It's the moment of frustration that erupts because of the ways. The police had not changed the erupted in the biggest moment of unrest in American history in terms of a single city. Mexico KANTER is an historian at Ball State University. He says in order to understand how Los Angeles got this moment. We're in now. You've got to understand with. The city's been through. That's a history that goes way back before kings beating. Los Angeles like many cities experiences the great migration starting in the early twentieth century with then through World War Two where the black population grows exponentially, but the thing that's crucial is Los Angeles prior to that have largely been an Anglo dominated city of white migrants, and the police force was essentially a force that represented that White Anglo. Protestant community as the black population grows the police see that as bringing criminality bringing unrest bringing disorder, and so the police from almost moment one had long been antagonistic to the black community, and you have black migrants in the fifties and sixties, saying things like essentially the police here don't operate any differently. Differently, than how we were treated in the south, that's amazing, so black folks fleeing kind of wild explicit violence of the south arrive in see it institutionalized in a different way once they get up to the north of the West, there even stories of the ways that the LAPD recruited officers from the south to bring to La Right in the end. So it's even there's that kind of reproduction of that system there of white supremacy in racial control, even just through the recruiting mechanism so F- friction has sparked an explosion here and their walk us through just the the uprisings rebellions tension that kind of spilled over in Los Angeles. For this period I study really with the nineteen sixty five watts uprising, the police pullover, a black motorist been they handle him roughly thrown, trying to arrest him in the squad car, and a crowd comes out and says you know like you can't be treating him like this. There's this kind of claim brutality. The key is that that comes on a decade and a half of police, brutality and harassment of residents in the black community, and so it's that moment where it's frustration and anger at the treatment by the lapd of the black community, then erupts into six days of anti-police protests and unrest. Fortieth Armored Division employed nearly eight thousand officers and men to quell the riot. The riots were single. Most devastating disaster befall Los Angeles in its long history. After the Watts rebellion and nine hundred sixty five Kim, the police beating of Rodney King, and ninety one and subsequent riots after the officers acquitted one thousand nine to. Five years later. There was another scandal former LAPD officer Rafael Perez convicted of stealing cocaine became an informant revealing widespread misconduct in the anti-gang unit where he worked. The Rampart scandal this moment where the anti gang task, force crash or the community resources against street hoodlums crashed. Sounds think those acronyms. It's exposed that officers in that Rampart crash unit were engaged in things like stealing evidence and cocaine from evidence rooms to sell to frame suspects, their son that were accused of just outright murdering suspects or other black and Brown residents, and that gets exposed, and it again reveals that there's this systematic kind of racist corrupt practice within the department that it's not just bad apples here or there. So, there's been flash point after flashpoint, but along the way there have been attempts to perform. There's a few things that also come out of the Rodney King. Beating which is crucial is that there was actually city charter reform where they took away? The chief of police, his life tenure because prior to that, but police couldn't really be fired because he had civil service protection, so there is some relief at the lake. City charter structure level at the national level, the federal government passes legislation that enables the Department of Justice to investigate police departments for patterns and practice of civil rights abuses in two thousand one. That law was used to LAPD under federal oversight in an agreement between the Justice Department and the city known as a consent decree. They essentially say there is a subculture and pattern and practice of racism and racist policing with in the police department, and that this can't be solved by just one individual heather actually been gains and progress during those years there some evidence by some of the reports that come towards the end of these consent decrees in a case where they're saying. Yes, there are these changes that have been made whether it's in kind of arrest statistics crime, going down the sense of like polls, residents thinking that the lapd are more fair and. And treat people better right in the institute community policing, but there's a lot of evidence that shown that coming out of that the LAPD in the past five years after the consent decree was lifted twenty, thirteen continued to disproportionately stopped black and Brown residents in cars, disproportionate rates, the metropolitan the elite.

"Circumstances, a city budget hearing can feel pretty routine. Can you hear me but last week in Los Angeles, hundreds of angelenos joined the crowded conference line to demand change from their police department. first of all, I WANNA say that it is wildly frustrating. You're paid for show. The city's money to oversee the terrorizing the people boss Angeles, particularly communities of color and the impoverished. I am a sixteen year old, young black woman and I just want to propose the question. Do you know the trauma behind watching countless black men and women be killed by racist police officers. The fact that you did not foresee having more than five hundred people come to this meeting is a sort of breathtaking lapse in responsibility and sort of emblematic of the larger problem. In the wake of George Floyd's killing their voices are among the course of people all across the country who are saying we need reform. We're in a moment with some people are calling for full abolition of police getting rid them entirely. But another growing demand defunding. Reducing the police department's budget and putting that money to work elsewhere. We. Need the fund the Police Department immediately. We don't need these people anymore. Killing our folks in the streets the day after that city council meeting on June six Los Angeles. Eric Garcetti got behind that idea. We're working together on the actions that will make sure that those voices and those calls don't land flat, but that result in the changes we all need. The mayor said that the LAPD budget which accounts for more than half of the city's entire budget would be cut by one hundred and fifty million dollars. He also said he would make one hundred million in cuts to other departments, and in both cases the money would be redistributed to communities of color. Two hundred and fifty million dollars in cuts, so we could invest jobs in health in education and in healing. And that those dollars need to be focused on our black community here in Los Angeles as well as communities of color and women and people who have been left behind for too long. The move comes after decades of tension between law enforcement and the city's black residents tension that's persisted despite years and years of incremental policing reforms. So could defunding be the thing. That finally makes a difference. and. This.

"Hours? Well, I think the cops would be glad to work those hours, they're all over time. But I don't know where the city is getting the money to pay these people over time. But I'm talking about physically where is like if you're going to like, let's say KFI said to you bender. We want you to work in a digital. We want you to work at additional fourteen days a year that would either have to come out of your vacation or you'd have to work weekends or over time. I don't know where where did the money come for that? Yeah. And I think again, I think the officers would do it because they get the overtime. But I don't know where the city is getting the money to pay the overtime. Well, you know in a few years the pensions are going to be based on years like this last one where they work a million extra hours. Right. How much do you think it costs for an hour overtime for LAPD? Like, let's say what's LAPD has a cost for probably a hundred bucks hundred bucks per benefits and time and a half. Maybe it's double time. I bet it's a buck twenty-five. Okay. One hundred and twenty five dollars. So if you multiply that by one hundred and twenty-five if you get let's say one million. And you multiply it by the hundred and twenty five bucks. That's probably what caused for an overtime. Our of LAPD that's one two three one to one hundred and twenty five billion dollars a year added to the budget. That's astronomical. I've never seen that added to the I've never seen an LAPD budget, and they were going to add one hundred and twenty five million dollars to something's going on here. And I don't know what it is. But I may get to the bottom of it. I like it. Pro cop. I'm pro L A. But when they say, we we want an extra million hours of patrol this. These numbers don't add up talent, you that out sitting here and telling you that out somebody's fudging these numbers going to get to the bottom of it. Plus, they're not reporting a lot of crime anymore because the they tie the cops hands. You know, the cops can't do anything nowadays you rest a guy for you know, being a homeless a hole on the street because he ripped off a bike or something. And then by the time, they do the paperwork on the guy he's out of jail again. So I don't know. We'll get the Bamut. Jay Leno is calling us is that right? He's on the line. Oh, great. Okay. Well, let's take a pause then right? Oh, that's him. That's a great. Great sound like all right. So Jay Leno come back. And we'll we'll see what he's up to.

They could not formally substantially would have you indict buck on the charges that he killed or injected as men with methamphetamine and caused the overdose. The only reason they're saying that is because they don't have evidence that he did it himself even those evidence that it's possible that is don't have evidences as he did it this is a legal standpoint.
