Now this is embarrassing.. Civil rights leaders have officially called for actress Daniele Watts to apologize to the L.A.P.D. after she lied, claimed was racially profiled and illegally detained.
Earl Ofari Hutchinson of the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable said the L.A.P.D. acted appropriately while adding Watts had lied..
“Don’t make us look dumb,” Hutchison said. “Don’t make yourself look stupid. Because when you do that, you totally do a disservice to what we consider is still a compelling, major, deadly issue, and that’s racial profiling.” Continue reading

It took a LA kings rally towel to bring down a L.A.P.D.
The drone fell into the crowd and was broken in pieces.
Steve Soboroff, president of the LA Police Commission, was attending a Clippers game and somehow got seated next to Rihanna.
At some point, Soboroff got the bright idea to take a selfie with the singer, who promptly dropped his phone, breaking the screen..
The point of the picture (other than to make Soboroff the new cool guy at the office) was to raise support and awareness for the LAPD. RiRi volunteered to play photographer but managed to drop the phone while so doing. And, from what Soboroff writes on Twitter, the singer also damaged it in the process.
Chris Brown.. Somebody wants the rapper dead.. But is this actually happening? Or is it a ploy for sympathy? Who can say for sure.. One thing is for sure, some one wants him dead. According to his attorney..
CBSLA.com is reporting that Christopher Dorner’s mom was spotted at an Orange County Mexican restaurant watching her son on the bar TV while drinking wine and dining on chips and salsa.
After naming many celebrities and marking them for death in his Facebook manifesto, Christopher Jordan Dorner, has changed the entire security play for tonight’s Grammys Awards Show, in a never-before-seen L.A.P.D. take-over command…
Event officials confirmed that organizers are coordinating with the LAPD to ensure the security of the venue and safety of the celebrity attendees as well as the officers who staff the event.
Many LAPD officers typically work security at the event, which is held at Staples Center. Police officials, while declining to discuss the specifics of their presence at the Grammys, say they will provide security for the event as planned despite the potential threat to officers.
“We have a very significant presence at the Grammys each year and will play an important role in event security this year,” said Lt. Andy Neiman, an LAPD spokesman.
Neiman would not comment on whether the number of officers at the event will be increased. Both uniformed and plain-clothes officers are typically involved in securing the massive music event.
Police say Dorner has killed three people and injured two others in a campaign to take revenge on those he blamed for his dismissal from the LAPD four years ago.
Police accuse him of killing the daughter of a retired LAPD captain and her fiance, who were found shot to death Sunday in a car in Irvine. While on the run, police said, Dorner shot three police officers, one fatally, in Riverside County.
“Obviously we are well aware of what’s going on and that Dorner is out there,” Neiman said. “We are going to do whatever is necessary, both at the Grammys and across the city, to keep our officers safe.”
I would say this ordeal throws a serious wrench into a normally horn tooting night… Though Charlie Sheen seems to have nothing to worry about…
