Main Topic Mayor Villaraigosa Calls Gangs Public Enemy Number One 15 MIN, 30 SEC

Crime is down in Los Angeles and Mayor Villaraigosa says Police Chief William Bratton deserves another term.  The "glaring exception" is gang crime, which the Mayor says is "Public Enemy Number One."  Villaraigosa is in Washington today for talks with federal officials, and Bratton says he'll release details of his new plans for taking on gangs in coming days. We take a look at gang injunctions.  Do they stop crime or move it next door?  Do they deal with causes or symptoms?

A marble and limestone statue thought to be the Greek goddess Aphrodite is the most famous antiquity at the J. Paul Getty Museum. At $18 million, it's also the most expensive. But today's Los Angeles Times reports on questions about its official history, questions raised before it was purchased in 1988. Was it stolen?  Will it have to go back to Italy?
