As of now, the trial is scheduled to begin June 29.
This month HBO is running a film titled, Tales of the Grim Sleeper. The British filmmaker blames the "indifference" of the LAPD and whites in general, rather than Lonnie Franklin himself.
There are numerous half-truths and evasions. One, there were at least five serial killers operating in the area with similar MO's. Two, L.A. law enforcement spent considerable time and taxpayers’ money on the case.
The film is mainly black residents of the area railing against the LAPD and "whites" in general. They seem to have relatively little ire against the perpetrator.
One woman attacks the LAPD for not solving the case, and then brags about telling her children not to "snitch."
As usual, no sense of irony. Nor is there any mention of the quasi-official line of "There are no black serial killers."
