How Bad Is Crime In Los Angeles?

Joan Renner, a Los Angeles crime historian, and Dennis Kilcoyne, a detective with the Los Angeles Police Department homicide division, discuss crime in 1980s Los Angeles. Crime was at "an all-time high," and the Hollywood division for LAPD was "busy all the time," according to Renner. Authorities averaged 60 to 70 murders a year, said Kilcoyne.
