I’ve just spent the last two days reporting on a story that took me to two different Los Angeles courts. All day Tuesday it was Edmund D. Edelman Children’s Court, where I watched a father and mother trying to retrieve their kids from the clutches of the foster care system. Not pretty.
The on Wednesday I was in LA’s downtown criminal court—never exactly what you’d call a slap happy romp. Heard a lot of brand new nightmare stories about the problems at LA County jail. Other new nightmare stories about California parole policy. More on all that soon.
And I’ll be back with real blogging tonight.
