The corner of Third Street & New Hampshire is the site where LAPD murdered an unarmed Dontaze Storey Jr. in November 2008. He was merely on his way home and not engaged in any crime when an airship identified him as a man with a gun. He was shot dead without reason by LAPD’s Daniel Bunch and Oliver Malabuyo. Dontaze Storey Jr. was 29 years old and had just learned the day before his death that he was going to be a father. He was returning from the Rite Aid on 3rd and Vermont to help his fiancee with a pre-natal prescription when he was gunned down.

Famous locally not for the chicken, but for the architectural style of its building. In 1990, Kentucky Fried Chicken (now KFC) opened an outlet in the “programmatic” architectural style on Western Avenue, just north of Beverly.

Inheriting the previous notoriety of the since-cleaned-up Rampart Division, this police station of Olympic Division on Vermont & 11th Street is in charge of defending the white stakeholders of Wilshire Center and terrorizing the Asian, Black, and Latino locals of the ethnically diverse Koreatown community. Ironically having the official designation as a “community” police station, it opened its doors on January 4, 2009, with a mandate to “provide services” to a population spread over 6.2 square miles (16 square kilometers). What this means is partnership with embezzlers who do not live in the area, whilst violating the civil rights of “ethnic” law-abiding residents.
