Police Officer Shoots Self In the Foot

On January 19, 2011, a police officer was shot in front of El Camino High School in the LA Unified School District. First the school was locked down, then half the city, as police performed a car-by-car search for a white male in his 40's in a bomber jacket. Several people were detained. The intense manhunt lasted more than a day.

So, it turns out the police officer just kind of accidentally shot himself.

Carlos Is an Asian at Heart

Why do Asian-American students achieve higher grades than Latino-American students?

Students at Lincoln High School sit down for a frank discussion of why that is.
