A bullet hole mars the Diet Coke ad on a sign in Jae Joo Kim's store, a 24-hour Donut King anchoring a troubled Van Nuys mini-mall. Another bullet hole has punctured another part of the sign, distorting the red plastic letters announcing that small drinks cost 55 cents. There is yet another bullet hole just outside, in the black metal molding that frames one of the plate-glass windows.

Suppose you run a business and you see drug-peddling or prostitution outside your store. What should you do? Call the police as a good citizen should? You had better think twice these days if you live in the Valley. As crazy as it sounds, you might get sued by the city if you do that. Criminal activity has blighted areas around Van Nuys and Sepulveda boulevards. Convenience and doughnut shops that make their living by staying open around the clock are particularly hard hit. Night-owl criminals hang around those businesses--after all, they need their hit of caffeine the same as anyone else.
