From 310FIRE

"Los Angeles Fire Department Engine 63 responded to a reported rubbish fire on the 2800 block of S Abbot Kinney Blvd. While in route for 3 minutes, Metro Fire Communications modified the incident to a structure fire. Battalion 4, Light Force 63, Engine 62, and Engine 67 were added to the structure assignment.

Engine 63 arrived on scene reporting a single story commercial with heavy smoke showing.

Engine 63 made entry, masked up and began fire attack. Once Light Force 63 arrived on scene, the truck headed to the roof while the pump grabbed a hydrant for the engine.

One additional task force was requested (Light Force 92 and Engine 59.)

Engine 62 assisted with forcible entry and was backup fire attack. Engine 67 checked the C side of the structure. Rescue 63 stood by as medical.

Battalion 4 was known as Abbot Incident Command. The additional task force was canceled while in route.

Knockdown was called in 20 minutes.

No injuries, arson investigators are investigating the cause."


Venice beach, CA library park major homeless encampment clean up AKA sweep. 1/12/22 Filmed by Cop Watch Venice

"First I run into a couple guys illegally off-roading on the beach that got stuck, they got lucky the police weren't around, but the police were not so lucky, cause someone pooped all over their ATV they left out of the illegal bribery parking spot at the hotel I recently filed a complaint about. Then sanitation and 10 cops making overtime to stand around, show up for the Hampton Ave homeless encampment clean up aka sweep outside of Google's headquarters. They all just stand around watching people move for hours like normal.

In case you were wondering, nothing was cleaned, unless you count throwing away someone's tent and sleeping bag, and people were just moved for a few hours while the city wastes more homelessness funding, and allowed to move right back. Note the private security, there's multiple armed private security forces paid for by the city and neighbors like googly illegally, to strictly harass homeless people because the police and city legally can't. Probably why people poop in their vehicles..."

"LAPD is out again playing games. Everyday they do whatever possible to not be filmed when interacting with homeless people, and everything possible to not do what they're supposed to. Today is no different, I get intentionally led back and fourth along the beach multiple times, in an attempt to discourage me from filming, meanwhile during this criminal waste of resources, only select homeless people are ticketed, all while they ignored over twenty 911 calls. I wanted to show a typical morning in Venice and where our tax dollars go, outside of the sanitation pretend clean ups. It's never as smooth as my normal videos show, the city and LAPD do everything possible not to be filmed doing things they aren't supposed to, wasting thousands of hours and literally driving around in circles trying to lose me. Guess I should say thanks for getting me in great shape, but I'll just file more misconduct reports instead."

On Wednesday night, a murder suspect from another state (big surprise) was found and arrestred on the Venice Boardwalk. The suspect has been identified as 27 year old Gregory Hopkins of Carbondale, Illinois. Police say Hopkins killed his 26 year old wife and then fled to Venice (most likely because eveyone knows the laws are not enforced here).

"Park Rangers are back for the weekly Venice beach boardwalk homeless encampment clean up AKA sweep. They again use selective enforcement and ignore the south end of the boardwalk again today. This week they started at the pagodas on Park Ave and made everyone move, but didn't clean anything. Then they headed north where they threw away a bunch of unattended stuff, then on to rose ave where they let multiple people stay that had tons of stuff, including one guy with a fire, and singled out one guy who they wanted to move. He wasn't having it and threatens the rangers, so they call LAPD. I didn't believe the outcome as they drove off and left tons of trash all over the beach"

"Venice beach flooded in a number of areas after the Christmas rains and of course a few years of city neglect. The homeless encampment clean ups have been off and on through the holidays with no consistency. Today one group living in a parking lot didn't have to move and another, that had multiple handicap elderly people lined up on the sidewalk outside the only homeless shelter around, had to move or lose everything. And sanitation refused to help a homeless woman who's appendix bursts, so I asked LAPD to call an ambulance."

Aerial surfing of single fin logger Kassia Meador. We’ve seen Kassia surf out at Malibu & San Onofre and she’s as smooth as It gets on a longboard. Her style & easy flowing approach on waves is a pleasure to see In person. Here’s a couple waves on a magical evening glass off from HULA SURF T.V.
