"The person above all  who should be lauded is you X. What you have accomplished is nothing short of amazing. The fact that the LDN is praising openness is in itself a huge story. I hope the years of cloaking the truth in political bias, half…"

"Good, hope other agencies follows, and hope LDN follows thru. Seems like a flood of info. Still don't believe in the remodel amounts, nor think LASD needs new schools."

"It seems to me that nobody jumps out of a boat into choppy water if they  do not think they are a good swimmer. It's to bad this happened especially since there were flotation devices and a boat present."

"Yes shinblind, a life ring with an attached 50' rope is required by all boats too, and should have been thrown to the man in the water right away. He could have also just hopped on the innertube he was retrieving for safety, but for some reason…"

"Anyone have a clue as to what kind of boat was involved? Curious as to the make and length. And was the owner at the helm? The wind was gusty at the time, 10-20 mph out of the SW. Also why did the skipper circle around instead of putting it into…"

    Downloading Videos

    Want to download videos for a thread or just to add to our Videos library, but are having a hard time figuring it out?  It's not hard once you know how to do it.  First you will need the Video's "Embed" code; on a typical video site like Youtube they will have a "share" button you need to click, you will then see an "Embed" button you need to click.  You will see the code all in blue, you need to "copy" (as in copy and paste) this code by going to your copy command.
