Shootout in Little Tokyo!
Posted by CalliLurk on Wednesday 26 July 2017 - 08:29:15
Down in Little Tokyo a man has been shot dead after a drug fueled shootout involving an unknown person of oriental descent inside the 323 Apartment block.

The man now identified as Tabata Takamori an independent software engineer; was found to have high concentrations of a new designer drug known as Nephilim in his system. Nephilim is a sensory enhancement compound that has started surfacing across the nightclub scenes throughout LA and it is believed to have caused the man to have severe hallucinations which resulted in him shooting and later, killing his wife of three years Tabata Yukio, leaving their daughter Tabata Fuji in the care of extended family.

Witnesses report three individuals heading into the building just after the first shots were fired, followed by several more which resulted in the gunmans death. One of the witnesses involved in the shooting was hospitalised and is said to make a good recovery.

So, not sure what the heck happened to all of the site's avatars, but if you want to link a new one, make sure it's http, NOT https, and just not too long. This was fine: http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4242/34996742983_9f1a3b31fa_m.jpg

I used imgur personally, and this worked fine for me: http://i.imgur.com/NYZODXk.gif

Also, the site can get testy, if at first it doesn't like the link, try again. You won't see it in your settings, to test, check the forums for one of your posts.

PS: Don't use Photobucket. They're systematically blocking off ALL third party links unless you're paying for an account. They seem to go by pages and graphics that are getting higher traffic, but ultimately ALL of their stuff will be blocked. If you are using them for anything, transfer to a different provider. This isn't the old days where they were the only game in town, as they're going to discover quite swiftly.


Double Homicide at Euro Arms Inc. Gunshop
Posted by Hermione on Saturday 08 July 2017 - 13:23:59
The local news stations and radio stations carry this as one of their breaking news stories for the next couple of days:

Police responded to reports of an active shooter situation taking place yesterday afternoon at gun shop Euro Arms Inc in Pasadena. Two people are reported dead, not including the gunmen who is said to be critical condition after an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. A third man said to be the owner of the shop is said to be in serious but stable condition as he under goes treatment at a local hospital.

The cause of the shooting is still under investigation but it appears that the gunman was not working alone. Video from the shop shows him depositing an undisclosed number of arms and ammunition into a waiting van which speeds off moments before the gunman tried to take his own life. Officials aren't saying much, other then they believe it may be gang related. They have released a blurry image of what appears to show a black van with tinted windows fleeing the scene of the crime. Anyone with information regarding this situation is urged to contact the Pasadena Police Department immediately.

This is the second crime in a two weeks where the gunman has or tried to take his own life after an otherwise successful robbery. While police insist the two matters are not related, city leaders are pressing for answers. As concerns of possible renewed gang violence or a spike in violent crimes like that which was seen in the early to mid 90's might once again be returning to Los Angeles.


Jewelry Exchange Robbed
Posted by Galileos Lens on Saturday 24 June 2017 - 14:01:02
Fantasy Jewelry Exchange on Hollywood Blvd, was robbed this afternoon in a brazen attempt by a lone gunmen to rob the store. Its reported by witnesses that a disheveled tired looking man in his 30's, who was armed with a handgun, and what looked like an explosive vest of some kind. Entered the exchange during the end of business hours and demanded an undisclosed amount of jewelry and money from staff.

While initial reports claimed the suspect has escaped. His body was later found several blocks away. Dead from an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The police are withholding the suspects identity for the moment citing an active investigation. Offering little in the way of further details.

However, sources involved in the investigation have been quoted stating that "none of the stolen property was found on the body of the suspect, and that the possibility of accomplices is being investigated".

In the meantime, the police have attempted to cut off access to the several blocks that suspect may have had access to during his brief escape from the Exchange. As a sweep of the area is undertaken.

Renraku Tower OPENS!
Posted by CalliLurk on Thursday 22 June 2017 - 12:20:36
Across News outlets, newspapers Television and select magazines (Business, tech and to a lesser extent Construction) of the newest addition to the LA skyline being opened up!

“Renraku Tower, the newest building to be added to the LA Skyline has just opened its doors today to both the general public and to establishing business ventures looking to get their hands on prized Downtown floorspace. Said to be the most technologically advanced building to date with some of the best in Green Technology and security systems incorporated into its whole, much of which developed by Renraku itself.

Up for rent so far are ten floors of high tech, modern apartments that are disappearing right quick as well as another ten floors of premium office space ready to go and spaces are filling up fast!

With the completion of the building and its subsequent opening, the corporation is expected to deliver a noticeable boost to the local economy."

Other less interesting details are included in this, including a small statement from a spokesperson. Included along with these articles which focus on slightly different aspects, are photos of an apartment interior that are fairly up to date and refined. Including shots of the small balcony fitted Gardens that are highly prevalent throughout.

In other parts of the Papers, advertisements for job positions have started to open up in the private security sector, sales and low level research and development assistants.


Anyone interested in checking into any of this, Send me a PM! This is also open to all. Not just Hengeyokai!)

The bat-signal will shine one final time for a beloved Dark Knight.

The late Adam West will be honored Thursday night with a lighting of the iconic signal in Los Angeles, with Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A. Police Department Chief Charlie Beck doing the honors.

The public is invited to the event, which will take place at 9 p.m. at City Hall (200 N. Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90012). West, who played the Caped Crusader on the classic 1960s series Batman, died Saturday at 88.

A Notice to the Amenti
Posted by Admin on Monday 05 June 2017 - 18:34:37
:::The following notice is posted in Ancient Greek and Egyptian, originally on the doorstep of the mosque, but it was quickly found by a cultist and rushed into the temple:::

Toddlers: Ask yourselves how it is that the Reborn, who called themselves 'Shemsu-heru', ancient and extinct, save for your so-called 'Revered One's, once vastly outnumbered the Cabiri, how they hunted us, and how, in the passing of the Malestrom, there are now no Shemsu-heru mummies, yet we persist. As you do, remember that Greece broke Egypt and know that your own persistence brought upon you the hell to come. Nowhere is safe for you.


Aliens in Los Angeles?
Posted by Vil on Thursday 18 May 2017 - 11:49:49
*In a yellow press paper for the more tinfoil hat people this article appeared*

HAVE THE ALIENS BEGUNN THE INVASION?

Yesterday, a we heard the news of a blue light from the forrest.
[Newspaper Name] was the first to investigate. this is our exclusive report.
We folowed a call of a young couple that saw a bright blue light in the distance. when we aproached we found a hole in a huge rock, a hole in the side of a tree and a big crater. as well as goo and traced of a huge animal
Dr Edmund Porters expert for extra terestrials had this to say :

"This is clearly a sign of a space shuttle from the aliens.
An egg spo to speak the goo is, i assume, part of its rapid metamorhisis.
We can only now be vigilant until the Beast in the LA Forrest can be detained and analyzed."

The police had this to say on the matter.

"Aliens, there are no Aliens. Scientist assisting on the matter told us it was probably an asteroid that hit the forrest. There is nothing to worry about."
