The Bru-Ha-Ha on Western

If you were caught in traffic during the bru-ha-ha near Western and Park Western, I feel sorry for you.

Apparently something went down at the Cigar store along Western Avenue in the city of Rancho Palos Verdes.

The Los Angeles Police Department was in charge of the investigation and nobody lost their lives.

One police officer seemed agitated when I asked the simple question of why was L.A.P.D. involved in the city of Rancho Palos Verdes where the L.A. County Sheriff's office has jurisdiction. I got a very cocky response from that officer who seemed agitated at such a simple question.

Everybody was very tight-lipped around the area. Several young fellows commented to each other 'are we good' on eigther side of the yellow barrier tape.

Both sides stated they were good when those questions went back and forth.

Usually at the monthly meeting of the Board of the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council, the lead officer for the area makes a report about crimes in that area. I hope the lead officer remembers what went down this evening to share with us at the meeting.

If you were stuck in the traffic, you found the normal traffic that was usually as congested as it normally is compounded by the invasion of police cars, sheriff's cars, fire department vehicles and gawker traffic.

As usual, some of the emergency vehicles had to drive over the concrete median to get along Western Avenue.

Terri and I walked to Marie Calender's for our first post-remodel dinner at that restaurant so we did not add to any traffic jams today.
