On Which Way LA? Monday Re: the Bryan Stow Beating Case

July 25th, 2011 by Celeste Fremon


I’m on Which Way LA? Monday night on KCRW 89.9 as one of the people talking
about the first arrest made in the vicious beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium.

As you likely remember, in late May a highly tattooed gang member named Giovanni Ramirez was arrested for Stow’s beating based on a tip from Ramirez’s parole officer and then a witness ID from a police lineup.

Last Friday the LAPD declared Ramirez innocent and two new men have been arrested on what appears to be much stronger evidence.

I was on the show along with the LA Times Joel Rubin and USC law school prof, Rebecca Lonergan.

Terrence McNally was sitting in for Warren Olney.

Our segment begins around 7:30 or 7:40 pm, but I’ll post a podcast link as soon as I have it.

    Looks like they got the guys this time. The sister/wife gave them up. LAPD’s got some ‘splainin to do. It’s one thing to err in an investigation. It’s another thing to claim “we got ‘em” and throw a party, only to find out it wasn’t the guy. They showed their ass. But glad they got what are likely the right guys. A little more patience and solid police work, a little less political posturing. That’s the moral of this story, LAPD.
