Federal authorities Monday pledged more resources to the Los Angeles Police Department's fight against gang violence, including special drug enforcement units with a track record of reducing crime in targeted neighborhoods. The announcement came two weeks after Mayor James K. Hahn and Police Chief William J. Bratton appeared with family members of a slain teenager in South Los Angeles, calling the city's street gangs a national threat that deserved intense federal attention.

A conservative is a liberal who got mugged, someone once said. If so, what happens to a liberal city that gets mugged? During the heat of the Los Angeles riots, some normally politically correct residents of the Hollywood Hills barricaded major entrances to their neighborhood with automobiles, patrolled the streets with AR-15s and handed out firearms to any law-abiding homeowner who would take one.

Pasadena's precedent-setting--and controversial--passage of a law to restrict handgun ammunition sales may be only the first such local measure. Emboldened by their counterparts' late-night, 5-2 vote on Monday, officials in Los Angeles and Azusa on Tuesday expressed support for such laws in their cities.

For the Los Angeles Unified School District, the fatal on-campus shooting of a Reseda High School student could not have come at a worse time. In the aftermath of the second campus slaying in a month, the district--already beset by financial difficulties and a threatened teachers strike--has come under renewed fire by critics who maintain that the mammoth system is in disarray and incapable of pulling itself together.

Assemblyman Richard Katz (D-Panorama City) said Thursday he is trying to unleash state funds to provide airport-style metal detectors in the entrances of all of Los Angeles' high schools and junior highs. In a news conference at Reseda High School, where a student was fatally shot during a snack break Monday, mayoral candidate Katz said he has asked the governor to release $1.7 million in federal grants controlled by the state Office of Criminal Justice Planning.

Stunned by the fatal campus shooting earlier this week of a 17-year-old student, more than 250 parents and students gathered at Reseda High School on Thursday evening to hear school officials recount the facts of the killing and to seek assurance that the usually placid school will remain safe.

This was supposed to be the place where children grew up worrying about pimples and who to take to the prom, not about being gunned down in front of their locker or at the corner pizza joint. But three shootings in recent days that left two teen-agers dead and five injured capture in stark colors the reality that San Fernando Valley parents are forced to confront: The suburbs are an increasingly treacherous place to grow up, no longer immune to the most merciless of society's ills.

Under the restrictions, the Palladium will be required to close by 1 a.m.

On a rainy night nearly 14 years ago, Haing Ngor parked his gold Mercedes in a graffiti-lined alleyway behind his apartment on the edge of Chinatown. The Cambodian refugee-turned-actor had won an Academy Award for his role in 1984's "The Killing Fields," but he still lived in a tiny apartment where he kept his Oscar next to a large Buddha statue. As he stepped out of his car, gunshots echoed off the alley walls. A neighbor rushed outside to find Ngor slumped on the pavement of his carport.
