From the Los Angeles Times
IN BRIEF LOS ANGELES COUNTY / INGLEWOOD
Teen Shot, Wounded at Gang Member's Funeral
From Times Staff and Wire Reports

June 18, 2006



A 14-year-old boy was shot and wounded Saturday outside a church where a funeral was being held for a slain gang member, police said.

Investigators believe the 1:30 p.m. shooting at Faithful Central Bible Church on Florence Avenue was a gang-related drive-by incident, said Inglewood Police Sgt. Marie Kirk.

However, she stressed that no witnesses had provided solid accounts yet.

"The scene was very chaotic, and people fled," she said.

The victim was hit in the left arm and was being treated at Centinela Freeman Regional Medical Center for wounds that were not life-threatening, police said.

The funeral was for a 29-year-old gang member who had been shot in Los Angeles.

I guess that's why the police escort some funerals. I knew someone from Main Street, and the LAPD escorted the caravan from his funeral at 80th & Avalon, all the way down Florence to the Inglewood Park Cemetery. And when we drove through 60's hood, more LAPD cars were at every corner around Crenshaw & Florence; it's like they expected something to happen.

No they don't. The men on motorcycles who escort funerals are NOT policemen. They are regular citizens who are hired by the funeral homes. They have NO police powers.

Some places may have actual policemen escort funerals, but out here in L.A., it is unusual!

Nope. The escorts out here are drivers who work for a company that is hired by the funeral homes to escort funerals. They aren't cops, and they get a permit that allows them to stop traffic.

BS! The problem is that these damn youngsters play by NO rules. I am old skool and those days are long gone. We would NEVER have stooped so low as to use a funeral as an opportunity to take revenge. There was a time and a place for things and that just was'nt it.

Lets see...I am 37 and when I was running hard I was in my late teens to early 30's. Shit started to change when I was in my mid 20's. But NOBODY I ever ran with would have been so disrespectful as to take a beef up at a funeral. I may have ran with some hardcore MF's but at least they had honor.
