In these days of support groups, Violet Loggins could start a large one for people whose husbands, sons, brothers, daughters or friends were murdered by one man. Loggins' own mourning began seven years ago. Her husband, Donald Ray Loggins, worked at a local cable company, and since the birth of their son five months earlier, he had been as punctual as a Marine Corps reveille. He would pull into the driveway of their pleasant two-bedroom, South-Central Los Angeles home at 2:45 p.m.

"Big Evil's Ride to Death Row" (by Michael Krikorian, Nov. 29) confirms my belief that gang members develop an addiction to the streets and the rush they experience from engaging in horrific crimes. What it suggests is that communities should get together and intervene with children when they are 8, 9 and 10 years old, serving time in juvenile detention centers. Cleamon Johnson is right when he compares his life on the streets to a war, because that's what it is and what it has been for many years.

After upholding nearly 50 death sentences in a row, the California Supreme Court on Monday broke its pattern by overturning the convictions of a reputed gang leader in Los Angeles and his alleged accomplice in two killings that sent both men to death row for 15 years. The state high court unanimously ruled that Cleamon Johnson and Michael Allen, convicted of killing rival gang members Peyton Beroit and Donald Loggins in 1991, were denied a fair trial when a judge removed a juror who appeared to be critical of the prosecution's case.

Shortly after 3 a.m. on Nov. 25, a 37-year-old black man named Timothy Johnson was shot multiple times on East 92nd Street in Watts as he returned home from a party. By the time police arrived, Johnson was dead, and the people who had been on the street with him had disappeared. A pit bull puppy chained in the yard was curled up on his body for warmth.

For the last three summers, Laker guard Michael Cooper has played pickup basketball at UCLA with Indiana Pacers rookie Reggie Miller, the former Bruin star. "In a sense, it's like looking in a mirror," Cooper said. "Reggie is a much better perimeter shooter than I am, but he has some of the same skills. He's got long arms like I do, and he has the potential to be a good defensive player."
