Three of the six Air Force crewmen were killed immediately in the crash, a fourth died later in a hospital, and a soldier on the ground who was taking part in the routine capability demonstration also died, said Capt.

A new report finds Occupy Los Angeles cost city taxpayers nearly $5 million, with the bulk of the money spent on policing the protest. The report presented Friday by City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana says the Los Angeles Police Department spent $1.3 million monitoring protesters during the course of their two-month demonstration outside City Hall, and another $1.3 million evicting them.
