Murder House revisited
By Christian Kennedy,

It's just two days before the one month anniversary of 'Murder House', and by and large this shocking chapter in Los Santos history has already been relegated out of the collective memory of the populace - out of sight, out of mind. Outside of the law enforcement community, this event has been largely forgotten - and that in itself is a disservice. It cannot be understated just how much 'Murder House' foreshadows - both for Los Santos and possibly for the United States of America.

On a cold December night, a patrol unit of the Los Santos Police Department spotted a black Sultan driving recklessly throughout East Los Santos. [...]

MURDER HOUSE
REVISITED

By Christian Kennedy.


It's just two days before the one month anniversary of 'Murder House', and by and large this shocking chapter in Los Santos history has already been relegated out of the collective memory of the populace - out of sight, out of mind. Outside of the law enforcement community, this event has been largely forgotten - and that in itself is a disservice. It cannot be understated just how much 'Murder House' foreshadows - both for Los Santos and possibly for the United States of America.

On a cold December night, a patrol unit of the Los Santos Police Department spotted a black Sultan driving recklessly throughout East Los Santos. The officer and his partner attempted to initiate a traffic stop but were met with a hail of automatic gunfire from the vehicle. Pinned down and outgunned, the two police officers took cover behind their vehicle and radioed in for immediate backup. Both officers were miraculously left uninjured. The Sultan sped away from the scene and the next few hours would be defined by burnt rubber, spent ammo casings, and the continuous drum of gunfire. It would be a very long night.

The foreboding hallway of 'Murder House' dotted with smoke and fire traps

Every law enforcement agency in the city of Los Santos was put on full alert. The streets were illuminated with the glow of red and blue police lights as officers of both the LSPD and SASD flooded the streets to search for the felons. It would be only ten minutes before a police helicopter spotted the Sultan in Las Colinas. Dozens of police officers from both police agencies quickly responded - the chase was on. Gunfire was exchanged between police and the suspects in the ensuing high speed chase. The suspects were soon determined to be armed with a multitude of high powered assault rifles and handguns. Tactical teams were put on standby.

Seemingly on a pre-determined route, the Sultan lead police down the East Beach highway and into a small street nestled between East Beach and East Los Santos. Quickly exiting their vehicle, the men, numbering three, sprinted to a house and took cover inside. The police surrounded the structure and evacuated the entire neighborhood as both sides hunkered down for a very long standoff. The worst was yet to come.

With the neighborhood evacuated and all attempts at negotiation met with silence, tactical teams from both departments were given the green light to breach the house. The door was reinforced with concrete, so C2 charges were purportedly needed to break through. Upon entering, tactical teams were met with a menagerie of deadly traps and even deadlier gunfire.

There were ten doors that lead through a single long hallway. Throughout that hallway, blinding white smoke permeated from smoke machines and fire torches littered the entryways - both intended to delay, injure, or kill. The police soon realized that every move was being watched, as evidenced by the dozens of cameras situated throughout the house. Tactical teams progressed through the hallway, disabling traps and cameras alike as they made their way through the structure. Finally, they encountered a stairwell. Upon approaching the stairs, they were met with gunfire from the suspects. Police returned fire and the suspects were forced to flee to the very end of the top floor, where a control room of sorts was situated. They halted the police advance with a mounted machine gun turret, embedded at the entrance of the control room.

The machine gun was disabled by police and two suspects were killed in the ensuing gunfight. The sole surviving suspect was taken into custody by police and had nothing more to say other than a slew of obscenities. Upon further investigation of the house, a room with a makeshift 'jail cell' was discovered and evidence indicated that the cell had been in use recently. A cache of armored vests, weaponry, ammunition, and explosives were discovered. One police officer was shot, but he has since fully recovered. Both police agencies worked in tandem to bring these evil men down and if it wasn't for their professional response, many lives could've been lost.

Police officials believe that this scenario was entirely planned beforehand. It's understood that the three men deliberately attracted police attention and then lead them along a pre-determined route to their fortified hideout, the ultimate goal being to kill as many first responders as possible. This disheartening discovery begs two very important questions: why and how?

Why would three adult men decide to do this? How did they manage to gather and construct their armaments without any attention from the authorities? Did nobody bother to inform the police? These questions have yet to be answered, but given the recent tragedies at Aurora and Sandy Hook, it's clear that these brazen acts of violence are becoming commonplace.

Is this what has become of our society?[/center]

RESTAURANT REVIEW
JERRY'S DINER

By Elizabeth Dempsey.


Jerry's Diner, a renovated restaurant in Vinewood, has been recently recognized for its classic diner simplicity. Previously Pizzeria Delfina, the business was leased to a new owner with entirely new management. Refurbished and renamed, the business has been resurrected and transformed into a family-friendly diner.

The menu caters to a variety of different tastes, ranging from an array of assorted hot deli sandwiches to baked goods such as America's favorite dessert and cultural icon: the classic apple pie.

The diner's service is just as delicious as its menu; the waiting staff are polite and quick to serve, providing dishes within five minutes of ordering, as well as frequently offering drink refills to replenish customer's thirsts.

The atmosphere of the diner is simple and familiar, with a noticeable vintage-esque touch to the standard diner appeal.

However, every rose has its thorn. Jerry's Diner indeed offers a wide variety of delicious hot foods in a family-friendly diner atmosphere, however the waiting staff is limited for such a large customer base.

The service of food may not have been affected by the evident lack of staff, but other duties were—the few staff were so occupied with providing meals to the customers that they had little time to clear and prepare the tables, which only lengthened the time customers spent waiting to be seated.

Although their staff is friendly and quick on their feet, it's ultimately a one-man show—very rarely a two at best.

Their service is adequate, and their food is superb. Jerry's Diner deserves a visit whenever you have the time.

SUSPECT WIELDS A
FIREARM, NEUTRALIZED
BY OFFICERS

By Theodore Jr. McClendon.


Image
IDLEWOOD, Los Santos — Two officers on patrol conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle that violated several traffic laws, which ended in the death of the suspect after brandishing an assault rifle and posing danger to both the officers and local residents of Idlewood.

Assistant Chief of Police Rashid Jamal reported that the officer who initiated the traffic stop made eye-contact with the suspect and noticed the suspect's possession - back-up was requested through the department's radio and a SWAT team was quickly dispatched to the scene in an attempt to maintain the safety of the officer and bystanders.

Upon the arrival of SWAT and other back-up cruisers, the crowd of civilians on-scene were asked to stay close to the responding officers while the others commanded the suspect to place both hands out of the vehicle's window.

The suspect didn't comply and in fact raised the AK-47 in the air, clearly visible to the officers. In response to this action, the officers used their discretion to maintain the safety of the officers and civilians and opened fire to neutralize the armed suspect, who was later pronounced dead just after 18:20.

POLICE OFFICER PURSUES
SUSPECT ON FOOT

By Elizabeth Dempsey.


Early Thursday morning at approximately 4:00 a.m., a police officer of the Los Santos Police Department was wounded by merciless gunfire. He was found in East Los Santos by a second officer of the department.

The wounded officer reported a foot chase via department radio just minutes before he was shot. The series of events leading up to the foot chase were not disclosed.

"The officer called in a foot chase. No one could respond. Next thing we know he stopped responding," reports another on-scene officer.

Amid the several concerned yet courageous officers was a female emergency medical technician of the Los Santos Fire Department. The female EMT remained calm and reserved while bravely aiding the wounded officer. The wounded officer maintained consciousness; his vitals stabilized as soon as the EMT introduced more oxygen into his system.

The female EMT transported the injured officer to the local hospital for treatment. The remaining police officers stayed on-scene to further the investigation. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, and an all-points bulletin was issued for local law officials to contribute to the investigation.

"It will be investigated to the fullest. The officer should pull through," another officer concludes.
