Dora Orozco, a mother of three, walks her children to Langdon Avenue Elementary School every day, because she is scared to let them walk alone. She worries most about her son, who will go to middle school next year. "I have an 11-year-old; he could come himself," Orozco said Tuesday, sitting in the schoolyard, which is separated from the street by an 8-foot-tall wire fence. "But I don't let him come alone. I don't like [gang members] to look at my son that way." She welcomes City Atty.

Hoping to catch God's eye, Amparo Lianez dragged her teenage sons into the middle of one of the meaner streets in Los Angeles. Pray for my boys, she begged a sidewalk gospel band sobbing into a microphone over the sins of Orion Avenue. Ask the Lord to keep Randy and Rudy safe from the gang, that they might grow up to serve him. It was a touching display of a mother's devotion. But it wasn't the whole story.

A flood of weekend drug arrests left lawyers and court personnel scrambling Tuesday as they attempted to file more than 70 narcotics cases within the legally required 48-hour deadline. The busts, which took place Friday and Saturday night in North Hills, stem from a controversial police tactic in which undercover officers "sell" macadamia nuts that closely resemble rock cocaine.
