From Arlington to Crenshaw all the way down to Leimert Park the crowds were five people deep on both sides of the parade route as Los Angeles came out to celebrate the legacy of freedom and action left to us by one of the greatest Americans, Martin Luther King Jr.

Imagine in 1992, there were more than 3 homicides a day. In 2001 there were two every day. Last year there was less than one. (Great graphics from the LATimes.com below.)…Continue
