The County Grand Jury finds that Garcetti's cutting the LAFD budget cost lives. http://lat.ms/16FTOiL
The Grand Jury found:
"Response times, though, can sometimes be a factor in the difference between life and death. There have been cases where a person has died while waiting for the medical personnel to arrive." P 68
The Grand Jury also found that people knew in advance that cutting the budegt woujld lengthen responses times and cause more deaths. It also found:
"It is a given that fewer resources would lead directly to increased response time." P 67
In other words, the Grand Jury report shows that Garcetti knew that his slashing the budget would increase responses times and that increased response times meant more deaths.
