In 2010 I read a short police blotter item about a Drug Enforcement Agency officer fatally shooting an 18-year-old in a parking lot near my favorite Barnes & Noble bookstore. The spokes-cop implied that the lot was notoriously infested with drug dealers, which I knew to be false.
I started poking around in the official story and found it didn’t make much sense. I visited the parking lot exactly 168 hours after the killing to see if the news accounts were more plausible at that time of the week. While there, I saw a mournful middle-aged woman looking about. She was the dead man’s mother.
I told her to sue. Three years later, a judge awarded her family $3 million.
I’m proud to say that members of my family later participated in a protest march down the Ventura Boulevard sidewalk. But, you know, afterward they didn’t sack the Banana Republic or torch the Chipotle.
