Damn, and I was just in Los Angeles.

From their website LAGangTours.com:

The mission of LA GANG TOURS is to provide an unforgettable historical experience for our customers with a customized high-end specialty tour. We will provide customers with a true first-hand encounter of the history and origin of high profile gang areas and the top crime scene locations in South Central, Los Angeles. Each tour bus for LA GANG TOURS will have a guide from the South Central areas who has gained hands on knowledge and experience of the inner city lifestyle.

Best quote from the L.A. Times article:

“I’m not saying you have to stop shooting each other,” Lomas said. “Just allow me a certain time in the day. . . . Just let the bus go through.”

Sounds Dangerous.

Interesting though…

68 years ago, on Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese war planes attacked Pearl Harbor, the forward base for the United States in the Pacific, effectively drawing the United States into war with Japan.  This picture of the sinking battleship USS West Virginia, illustrates the extent of the physical destruction.  The crew of the boat in the foreground is attempting to save sailors in the water.  The sinking of the USS West Virginia resulted in the death of 106 crewmen.

Read the official battle report, submitted on December 11, 1941

Never forget those who died… never forget those who killed them.
