Rioting continued yesterday in the LA County jails in Castaic. The LA Times reports more than 500 inmates were involved, nearly 100 were injured and 28 had to be hospitalized.

In law enforcement news, 13-year-old Devin Brown had slowed the car he was driving to no more than 2mph when he was killed by the LAPD officer who claimed to fear for his life. The Police Commission seems to have used good judgement in the Devin Brown case. The same can't be said for their decision to withhold the names of officers involved in shootings, which is taking some heat; the City Council isn't pleased.
