A group of immigrants-rights advocates is on a bus tour of California and is banging the drum -- literally -- for changes in federal law to provide illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. About 50 people are on a bus tour of congressional offices in California urging support for proposals being considered in Washington. The tour includes members of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles and is targeting Republicans. On Tuesday, the bus tour visited the Brea office of Rep. Ed Royce and the Irvine office of Rep. John Campbell.

The Los Angeles Police Commission on Tuesday called for a public hearing to question LAPD officials about patrol officers who tampered with voice recording equipment in patrol cars. Commissioner Robert Saltzman said he wanted to hear from senior police staff about how the case was handled and the decision not to investigate to find out which officers were responsible for the deception. He said he also wanted an explanation for why the department failed to immediately notify the commission when the vandalized equipment was discovered.

Daniel Yealu was upbeat when he talked to his father last year. He told him that he was making good money as a security guard, had applied to get into the Burbank police academy and hoped to soon buy a condominium. But on Monday night, the 29-year-old allegedly walked into a Los Angeles Police Department station, approached the front desk and opened fire at two officers. One was wounded before the pair returned fire, critically wounding the suspect. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Yealu used a Glock pistol and was carrying extra magazines.

The Orange County clerk-recorder will open its doors Saturday because of the demand for same-sex wedding licenses.  Orange County may be the closest place for Los Angeles-area residents to get a marriage license before Monday. Los Angeles County issued only one same-sex marriage license on Friday -- to two plaintiffs who filed the federal lawsuit that eventually struck down Proposition 8.  At least one gay couple were upset that L.A. County wouldn't reopen its offices until Monday.  But in Orange County, Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen said his offices in Santa Ana, Fullerton and Laguna Hills would be open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. "We're listening to what our customers tell us they want," Nguyen said.

Los Angeles police officers tampered with voice recording equipment in dozens of patrol cars in an effort to avoid being monitored while on duty, according to records and interviews. An inspection by Los Angeles Police Department investigators found about half of the estimated 80 cars in one South L.A. patrol division were missing antennas, which help capture what officers say in the field. The antennas in at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions had also been removed. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and other top officials learned of the problem last summer but chose not to investigate which officers were responsible.

ALBUQUERQUE - When Wynema and Michael Gonzagowski moved to town about two years ago, family and friends warned them about what they described as the heavy-handed tactics and aggressive attitude of Albuquerque police. At first the couple brushed off the warnings, saying things couldn't be as bad as what they had experienced in Los Angeles in the LAPD's Rampart Division, which became infamous for corruption in its anti-gang unit in the 1990s. But the Gonzagowskis, like others here, began to grow suspicious of their Police Department.

A "typical mid-range office arrangement"--executive desk, high-back chair, credenza and two visitors chairs--costs about $2,026 to rent for 12 months, the Furniture Rental Assn. of America said. The same furniture would cost about $3,371 to buy. That typical office arrangement usually costs between $129 per month for basic furniture to $200 per month for luxury rentals, the group said. And the selection is much broader than it once was.

Robert L. Brosio, a retired federal prosecutor who supervised high-profile cases that included those against bank swindler Charles Keating Jr. and Los Angeles police officers who were involved in the beating of Rodney King, has died. He was 77. Brosio, who for 28 years led the criminal division of the U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles, had a massive pulmonary embolism in February, his daughter Serena Brosio said. He died Friday at a Pasadena hospital. While he seldom argued cases in court himself, Brosio was in charge of more than 100 prosecutors and set a standard of "ramrod integrity," said Nora Manella, an associate justice of the California Court of Appeal in Los Angeles.

More than 450   medical marijuana shops have filed renewals to pay Los Angeles business taxes this year - more than three times as many as are allowed to stay open under Proposition D. The new numbers won't settle the debate over how many medical marijuana businesses are now operating in Los Angeles. Additional pot shops may be open but have fallen delinquent on their taxes. Some may have never registered to pay taxes at all. But the numbers provide the latest hint at what has happened since Los Angeles voters passed new rules attempting to restrict medical marijuana shops.
