Posted: 16 Oct 2013
After prodding around Spike's gold-leafed Chevrolet frames and chromed V8s, I drive through the gang neighbourhoods. A street has been closed, taped off by the LAPD, so I pull up and roll down the window. "Homicide," the policeman offers. And, before I have a chance to ask, "Could be gang-related." It's the fourth road I've seen blocked in the area.
