there's a cultural difference between my hometown and where a lot of you live. you've all heard about the police scandals. most of them were in LA. police let a lot of things slide. in the rich areas, hollywood and beverly hills, police don't want to arrest rich people because rich people are influential. in the poorer areas, police know their outnumbered and outgunned by gangsters. so everyone protects themselves even if they're not the type to want to hurt someone else.
