    On Sunday at about 2:30 there was also some problem at the bus stop across from Westwood Village. There were 2 or 3 police SUV there, a small crowd of people, police talking to people…just by the retirement home. Any idea what happened yesterday?

      Nobody texted us and we weren’t by the scanner. Checking the Twitter log, only call in that area at that time was listed as shoplifting.

Sorry, comment time is over.
