Is Venice Losing Its Soul?

Hosted by  • 

The Venice Boardwalk is one of LA's most popular tourist attractions, but recently it's been the scene of high profile crimes. Last summer, a car was driven past a barrier post and killed a woman on the pedestrian walkway. In December, a homeless man was beaten on Ocean Front Walk. The LAPD has announced a three-month pilot program, including the increased presence of officers on bicycles. Is Venice's unique culture a still going on or is it a thing of the past?
