Every Monday I seek-out commentary on and recaps of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” I’ve decided to post a few links here.
The cliff-hanger questions of the week?
Are the dead boy’s fingerprints on that jar Todd saved?
Will Walter White throw Todd to the wolves to keep the heat off the cook operation?
Where did the writers come up with Mike’s unusual last name?

Crime’s down … just not around here

Call this a round-up of sorts…

Sheriff Lee Baca says crime is down county-wide, except near Industry where homicides are up. 
Here’s a snippet:
Despite the mostly good news, there remain problems in some areas patrolled by the Sheriff’s Department. Most notably in the communities serviced by the Industry Station, violent crime is on the rise.

Moving on… Women have been targeted by robbers in Azusa and Baldwin Park.


Authorities said the same car was used in a robbery of an ice cream vendor in West Valinda and a 16-year-old boy in Rosemead on Monday.

The notorious Avenues gang gets hit again in a federal raid.

Pico Rivera’s fifth homicide is a whodunnit …just like the other four this year.

And, finally DNA catches a man suspected of raping a blind Norwalk woman in May. Here’s how he was caught:


DNA led to the arrest of a suspect in the May 1 rape of an 82-year-old legally blind woman, authorities said Monday.

Antonio Durell Freeman, 31, of Norwalk was booked Friday on suspicion of rape, kidnapping and burglary. He is being held at the sheriff’s Century Station in lieu of $1 million bail. He has a court appearance today at Bellflower Superior Court.

Freeman appeared in the DNA database after Long Beach Police arrested him July 11 on suspicion of spousal assault and took a DNA sample from him, according to Maxwell.



Flash (player) Friday

My friend Dean Norris, plays a DEA agent in the AMC television series “Breaking Bad.” I ‘m pretty sure it runs Sunday nights.

The show’s about a high school chem teacher who learns he has terminal cancer and decides to leave a legacy behind for his family by manufacturing and selling methamphetamine.

Brian Cranston, the dad from “Malcom in the Middle” stars in the show, you’ve probably seen ads with him standing in the middle of the desert wearing only briefs (not boxers.)

Anyway, Dean sent me this video, that’s sort of an outtake from the show. I promised to share it here.

A few months ago I posted YouTube version of the same video, but AMC pulled it before it got too widely viewed. So we’ve finally got it back.
