FROM THIS EPISODE

Violent crime, including murder, is on the increase in South Los Angeles after almost a decade of steady decline. Yesterday, an "emergency meeting" was packed with elected officials, cops, activists and residents -- including survivors and victims' relatives. What new resources are required, compared to what's available?

Also, since Austin Beutner was fired as publisher and replaced by an out-of-towner, politicians and other civic leaders are lining up to demand local control of the LA Times.

LA Civic Leaders Stand Up for Local Ownership of LA Times 10 MIN, 48 SEC

Austin Beutner may not be a household name in Los Angeles, although he was First Deputy to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.  What's made him a cause celeb for the business and political establishment is his firing last week after 13 months as publisher of the LA Times. There’s special anger because his replacement is an out-of-towner — Timothy Ryan of the Baltimore Sun.  Sixty-six local leaders have signed an open letter demanding what they call a renewed "commitment to Los Angeles."
