7/25    One way to close the gap between the rich and the poor:
        \ "The LAPD’s West Division has put a task force of
          10-plus detectives on the case; plainclothes patrols have joined
          the chase."
          I wonder how many detectives Oakland police would put on the case
          if this was happening at, say, Fruitvale?
          \_ Oakland doesn't have enough officers, so probably no more
             than usual.  Oakland also has an artificial shortage of
             officers, since they all work 4 10 hour shifts, giving them
             3 day weekends.  So on day 5 they get over time.   Oakland
             also has an even more artificial shortage of officers, since
             plenty of Oakland cops fill internal jobs that at other
             depts, are filled by non cops.  The Oakland PD union should be
             destroyed.  I'm sure there are good people in the oakland
             pd but too many of them are fucking stupid or are just riding
             that cushy salary until they retire.
          \_ "Los Angeles Police Department detectives think the crew has
             struck more than 50 times since late last fall."  If the same
             neighborhood in Fruitvale has been struck more than 50 times by
             the same crew, I think Oakland PD would assign quite a few people
             on the case, if not 10-plus.
             \_ Go to
                Search for burglaries within 1 mile of Fruitvale and
                International within the past 90 days.  -tom
        \_ Why don't these super-rich people buy security cameras with higher
           resolution?  That video screenshot is next to useless.
           \_ Resolution is useless if there's no light to be captured.
              Infrared cameras will help, though.
              \_ Or combination of motion sensor light and cameras.

Robbing the Rich In a caper the locals have likened to 'Ocean's Eleven,' a team of burglars has been hitting houses in some of LA's wealthiest neighborhoods. Husband-and-wife country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are among the victims of a team of burglars plaguing LA's tonier neighborhoods. Jae C Hong / AP Husband-and-wife country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are among the victims of a team of burglars plaguing LA's tonier neighborhoods. Web exclusive By By Andrew Murr Newsweek July 25, 2007 - The latest Los Angeles crime spree might make a good caper movie. A crew of two, maybe three, shadowy burglars figures out how to break into million-dollar mansions dotting the pricey hillsides above LA Clad in gloves and ski masks, the crooks case the homes of the rich and absent, then skirt the security systems by climbing in alarm-free second-story windows before quickly grabbing cash, jewels and the occasional rare book. If the stuff's in a unanchored safe, they just pick it up and go. Los Angeles Police Department detectives think the crew has struck more than 50 times since late last fall. Last week, baffled LA police announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the real-life gang the locals are beginning to give Hollywood names like "Ocean's Eleven" or "Burglars to the Stars." They've struck fear among the homeowners of posh communities such as Bel-Air, Brentwood, Encino and Holmby Hills, who have long assumed that elaborate surveillance systems and private security patrols would shield them against this sort of intrusion. "They are professional, deliberate and speedy," says LA city councilman Jack Weiss, who represents some of the hardest-hit hillside neighborhoods, whose winding roads and tall hedges have made it harder to spot the perps. "The irony is that the relative isolation of the homes in these communities has unfortunately created the opportunity for these guys." Police won't name names, but the weekend of the Grammy Awards, the bold crooks busted into the empty Hollywood Hills residence of country stars Faith Hill and husband Tim McGraw, who happened to be at another home of theirs in Nashville. They also visited the home of former Paramount Pictures chief Sherry Lansing and her husband, Oscar-winning director William Friedkin, according to a Los Angeles Times report. The burglary crew also scored at the Hollywood Hills home of Duran Duran bassist John Taylor and his wife, Juicy Couture cofounder Gela Nash-Taylor. And last January, the thieves reportedly lifted a cool half million in cash and jewelry from the Bel-Air digs of Los Angeles Clippers guard Cuttino Mobley.
