The Evolution of LA1 News

by LA1 News

LA1 News was created by a staff CNN studio camera operator / freelance LA Weekly writer on Christmas Day, 2000, using a work computer at CNN's Los Angeles news bureau.

Veterans Memorial Desecrated in Highland Park

by LA1 News

LA1 News was notified about fresh graffiti spray painting at Highland Park Veteran's Memorial Square on Saturday. Police officers were standing outside their patrol vehicle when we arrived to witness a swastika painted atop the memorial fountain at the Square. There was also graffiti on the nearby electrical box which police officers had not yet noticed. We asked the police exactly what they were going to do about the serious injustice to local veterans that the vandalism represented. "You see we're here," said the officer. "What do you think we are doing here?"
