The Gangsta Code

The L.A. Times runs a Homicide Report blog that allows comments and asks for information.

One incident was a 37 year old man, gunned down in the middle of the night. The comments show family members and friends mourn the loss.

But then other people started to comment, in record numbers, and we learn more about the guy who died. His street name was Sinister.

The comments are a microcosm of the debate going on all over the country about race, crime, and gang culture. The L.A. times has collected some of the comments here. Or you can read them all here, from bottom to top.

Thanks to Marginal Revolution for the links.
