How Investigators got it right for this murdered black teen

How Investigators got it right for change in the case of this murdered black teen.


Bryant Tennelle was 18 when he was gunned down in “ghettoside” Los Angeles. The doggedness of a detective working his case is how every black murder case should be pursued.
For years now, Jill Leovy has spent as much time as anybody writing about violent crime, and thinking about its many causes. 
The Homicide Report, her Los Angeles Times blog, went live in 2007. Its stated goal: To chronicle every murder in L.A. County. By her own admission, Leovy missed some of the homicides that took place in America’s most heavily populated county that year. But she still churned out countless column inches, documenting scores of murders that for various reasons would’ve never appeared in the Times’ print edition. (According to a 2008 L.A. Weekly article, the Times covered about one-tenth of the county’s murders before The Homicide Report.)    Read More at the Daily Beast.
