    Shocking photos captured the chaotic and gruesome aftermath of a fatal dog attack where a man was mauled to death by his 13 pitbulls in his yard in Los Angeles. LAPD officers were called to the home on the 900 block of Thorson Avenue, Compton, at 7am on Friday after a concerned friend went to the house and discovered his body. Officials believe he was a breeder and had gone into the yard to feed the dogs on Thursday night when a fight broke out between the animals and they turned on him. Helicopter footage showed his bloodied body lying...

    Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón faced tough questioning during a district attorney debate over his policies on gang-related crime enhancements, including from a mother whose child was killed by a gang member. When Gascón took over as district attorney, he barred prosecutors from pursuing enhanced punishments for gang members, according to Fox 11. Several of the deputy district attorneys who are running against him said at the debate on Thursday in Beverly Hills that they disagreed with this policy. Emma Rivas, whose son was murdered in 2016, confronted Gascón about the impact his policies had on the killer's...
  • Letters to the Editor: I'm a psychiatrist. Lawyers shouldn't be assessing Biden's cognitive ability

    Justice Department special counsel Robert Hur has training in neither psychiatry nor neurology, yet he included an assessment of President Biden's cognitive functioning in his report declining to bring charges for mishandling classified information. Memory assessment is a complex task and cannot be undertaken over five hours in interviews with attorneys.
  • The great train heists of the 21st Century: Thieves armed with bolt cutters and crowbars are clambering aboard lumbering freight locomotives laden with Amazon boxes and staging brazen raids that shame Los Angeles

    California cops have been left scrambling as gangs of thieves armed with bolt cutters and crowbars are clambering aboard mile-long trundling freight trains to loot expensive electronic goods, high-end clothing and jewelry. Sometimes the robbers strike while the lumbering locomotives are still moving, while others brazenly trigger the emergency brakes so that their accomplices can hack their way into the metal containers. LA is the undisputed 'capital of cargo theft' with trains ferrying goods from the major ports, but the spate of train thefts have almost doubled across the nation since 2019. The issue of mass cargo theft shot into...
  • How Paris Jackson Erased Her Tattoos for the Grammy Awards Red Carpet

    The multi-hyphenate daughter of Michael Jackson opted to pair her skin-baring Celine gown with an absence of her signature ink. Viewers of the 2024 Grammys might have noticed that Paris Jackson went for a look that exuded a sleek and chic vibe, and in doing so, the actress and singer-songwriter somehow wasn’t sporting one of her signature elements: her ink. Jackson worked with New York-based Cover FX, the vegan and cruelty-free skincare line, to “erase” her 80-plus body tattoos to create a clean look for the Grammys red carpet. Makeup artists Tyson Fountaine and Paul Blanch worked on Jackson’s body...

    Drudge is giving this banner treatment but I’m not sure why. Of course Al Qaeda is on the brink of a dirty bomb. Their comrades-in-arms in the Taliban are the jihadist proxy of one of the world’s biggest nuclear proliferators, aren’t they? If the filthbags in Pakistani intelligence want Al Qaeda to have nuclear material, they’ll find a way to smuggle some out of the state supply, I’m sure. In fact, according to a new piece in the NYT, Pakistan’s practically swimming in fissile material these days. Never mind the dirty bombs; how long before AQ or Lashkar e-Taiba or...

    Los Angeles isn’t the city of angels: it’s the city of rats. Last year, LA shot up in the rankings of the “rattiest cities” from third to second place, and it’s closing in fast on Chicago. What is its secret? There is the fetid filth of the junkie vagrant camps where typhus, a medieval disease spread by rats, made a comeback almost as fast as crime once city officials legalized the ‘homeless’ trifecta of street living, drug use and shoplifting. And like criminals and junkies, the rats have Democrats on their side. In the fall of last year, Gov. Newsom...

  • Police raid sprawling $4.3 MILLION L.A mansion overrun by 'squatters' after complaints of all-day raves and revelers stumbling around Beverly Hills neighborhood - just around the corner from Lebron James and John Legend's homes

    A dramatic police raid descended on a raucous Beverly Hills 'squatting' mansion that has been plaguing its celebrity neighborhood with nightly rave parties. The Los Angeles Police Department responded to reports of a home invasion shortly after 3pm Friday at the $4.3 million mansion, the site of a number of out-of-control parties that began in October. Despite counting Lebron James and Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane as neighbors, police had been seemingly powerless to stop the continuing raves - until Friday's incident reportedly included several suspects armed with a knife. It appeared that one of the all-day parties was going...

    The Los Angeles Times announced over 100 journalists would be laid off Tuesday as the media outlet lost as much as $40 million a year, according to multiple outlets. The newspaper will reduce its newsroom staff by 20%, one of the biggest cuts in its 142-year history, the outlet’s Meg James reported. Among those who were axed included the chief and deputy chief of the paper’s Washington, D.C., bureau, along with its business editor, the music editor and books editor. Two of the paper’s four managing editors resigned prior to the announcement of the layoffs, adding to the uncertainty around...

    Police are investigating a "massive illegal fireworks show" that lit up the night sky over downtown Los Angeles late Sunday. Reports of the nonstop fireworks first started coming in at around 10:45 p.m., with dozens of social media users posting videos questioning the incident. The display woke up hundreds of people living around the area, many of whom said that their doors and windows were shaking as the powerful explosives continued. DTLA Little Tokyo, 20 minutes ago, I don’t think these fireworks were planned. Also saw a drone. Then a helicopter flying over with a spotlight minutes later. —...

    Hunter Biden will be arraigned Thursday afternoon in California on nine federal tax charges, after prosecutors alleged President Biden's son engaged in a "four-year scheme" to avoid paying at least $1.4 million in federal taxes. In December, federal prosecutors charged Hunter Biden with nine counts of tax crimes, including three felony and six misdemeanor charges related to his alleged failure to file and pay taxes, evasion of assessment and filing a false or fraudulent tax return. If convicted, Hunter Biden faces up to 17 years in prison. In the 56-page indictment, prosecutors alleged Hunter Biden earned more than $7 million...

    The largest cut diamond in the world is about to go up for auction. The extraordinary jewel, nicknamed "The Enigma" is a billions-year-old Fancy Black diamond that is rumored to originate from space. According to the auction house, the stone is a carbonado black diamond, which are extremely rare, occur naturally, and usually date from 2.6 to 3.8 billion years old. It contains nitrogen and hydrogen but also a mineral called osbornite usually found in meteorites, which suggests an outer space connection. What that connection is exactly is unclear, however. Extraterrestrial diamonds from meteorites are tiny, usually nano-sized. This diamond...

    An investment firm led by the billionaire Stephen Deckoff has bought two private islands in the U.S Virgin Islands previously owned by the late notorious sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein, Deckoff confirmed to CNBC on Wednesday. Forbes first reported that Deckoff, the founder of the private equity firm Black Diamond Capital Management, purchased the two islands for $60 million, less than half of their initial asking price.

    Ian Ziering was filmed being punched and kicked by a group of mini-bike riders in Los Angeles on Sunday in a shock traffic altercation. In video from the shock incident, The Beverly Hills, 90210 actor, 59, was seen clashing with one mini-bike rider on Hollywood Boulevard - approaching them and kicking them before striking them on the head. Ziering was then attacked by the rider who attempted to strike him, before the actor pushed the rider to the ground. Ziering was surrounded by other bikers from the group - who wore helmets in the exchange - and was seen being...
