My friend John C. shared this photo. He is a photo journalist in South East LA. He made this map and plotted shootings that he has published.
I mapped out each one of the 155 shootings I’ve published in almost 3 years as a photojournalist. Mainly covering South East LA. There are several that I didn’t publish due to minor injuries or suicide.
He said he might map out his company’s shooting map. But those results would be in the thousands.
That is a lot of shootings and a lot of data. Also those are only the shootings that he covered in just 3 years. I don’t have to remind our readers about how anti-gun Los Angeles is. I wonder if the shootings have increased in three years or have they decreased?
