Is South L.A. no place to be gay?
A 28-year-old man says he awoke recently to find that someone had smashed the windows of his car, flattened its tires, and etched the word "gay" into its roof. Not nice:
The L.A. County Sheriff's Department says it happened Sunday in the 2100 block of West 108th Street in unincorporated South Los Angeles.

According to the department:
The vehicle was parked on the street in front of the victim's house when this incident occurred.
