Anything L.A. Hiatus Announcement

Dear Friends, Loyal Readers and Subscribers,

Like many other media outlets, Anything L.A. Liberal Magazine is facing somewhat of identity crisis.

The avalanche of news, fake news, allegations and alternative facts coming from Washington D.C. almost daily is overwhelming. The American value system has been turned upside down. Our reality is in a flux. Even though California is a bastion of liberal and democratic views, the changes are affecting Los Angeles and our way of life, too.

In light of the current situation, Anything L.A. is taking a temporary hiatus to reconsider our magazine’s format and direction.

We’d be glad if you stayed with us through the transition but ultimately the decision is yours…

Betty Shelby Got Away With Murder

Even though we have seen the video of how the killing of 40-year-old, unarmed, African American, Terence Crutcher unfolded, white Tulsa police officer Betty Jo Shelby was acquitted by a jury.

During the testimony, officer Shelby defended herself by saying that she shot Crutcher because he didn’t obey her command to lie on the ground and then reached inside his SUV for what she presumed was a gun.

The widely circulated video of the shooting tells a different story. Terence Crutcher - who as we now know was under the influence of drugs at the time - had both hands raised and was never threatening. Officer Shelby was acquitted because, in the words of her defense attorney, “she just overreacted”.

In response to the acquittal, Rev. Joey Crutcher, Terence’s father said: "Let it be known that I believe in my heart that Betty Shelby got away with murder." Protesters took to the streets and chanted "Hands up, don't shoot." in front of the hotel where Shelby was staying. The crowd eventually disbursed, peacefully. Read more

Investigation Of Chris Cornell’s Death

The death of the lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave is under investigation. His suicide cannot be explained by his shocked family, friends or fans. It is known however that Cornell was on a prescription anti-anxiety medication and the possibility that the prescription may have influenced his spur of the moment decision to kill himself is being explored.

Chris Cornell was only 52 at the time of his death. He had a happy family life. In professional life, Cornell was accomplished and successful.

Cornell was one of the influential figures of the 1990s grunge movement. Soundgarden was considered one of the leaders of Seattle’s grunge music scene along with such giants as Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

Chris Cornell’s career can be seen as having several distinct stages. 1984: the co-founding of Soundgarden and the hits from the time ''Rusty Cage", "Outshined" and "Jesus Christ Pose". 1991: Cornell’s collaboration with several members of Pearl Jam led to the founding of Temple of the Dog.

Washington Shenanigans

The shocking firing of FBI Director, James Comey; President Trump’s strange reference to tapes of their conversations in the White House; Comey’s alleged memo which supposedly claims that President Trump asked him to stop investigating Gen. Flynn who - in the words of the President - is “a good guy”; The President leaking top-secret Israeli intelligence to his Russian visitors. (No American photographer or reporter was allowed into the meeting, but a Russian photographer was.); President Putin offering to bail out our President with transcripts of the conversation with Russian representatives during the “confidential” White House meeting; Finally, the appointment of Special Counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, a former F.B.I. director, whose sole responsibility will be to oversee the investigation of the Trump campaign and administration’s possible ties to Russia.

In the opinion of many: - the President’s reference to “tapes”; - his alleged request to stop the FBI investigation of Gen. Flynn; - his repeated inquiries whether he himself is being investigated; have all the characteristics of obstruction of justice. Many make comparisons between Watergate and Trumpgate. Read more
