We’re Number One! In car chase coverage…

According to the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles has more TV stations airing live car chases than any other place in the country. Interestingly, the number of people who try to flee an LAPD officer is up 40 percent in the past three years.

That second data point confirms my long-standing suspicion that people are more likely to flee the LAPD because they want as many cameras on them as possible in case the police decide to go Rodney King on them.
