Hollywood’s ‘Race Problem’ Is Worse Than You Think

“Every camera is equivalent to 10 officers,” Fernandez said in pitching the program to commissioners. Hollywood has budgeted $2.2 million for the program, the chief says. He hopes to have the cameras up and running within the year. Hollywood currently has 423 cameras throughout the city, but many of them aren’t working, Fernandez said. His plan calls for repairing the broken cameras and buying new ones. The cameras would be clustered in nearly 40 spots throughout the city, according to a map showing proposed locations. Cameras will be installed along State Road A1A near the beach, Young Circle in downtown Hollywood and State Road 7 in the western part of the city. Fernandez points to crime stats to show just how dangerous Hollywood streets have become. The city ranks fifth in the number of fatal accidents statewide, third in accidents involving bicycles and 12th in cases of aggressive driving. Fernandez says he wants to make Hollywood’s streets safer through more DUI patrols and traffic enforcement, especially along Federal Highway. He’s even put cops on bicycles to help curb crime.

New Hollywood police chief pushes change

Former News Corp executive Peter Chernin’s Chernin Group has invested in Tumblr, Pandora and Flipboard, while Michael Ovitz, the talent agent and former Disney CEO, has invested in Ron Conway’s SV Angel funds, the tech incubator Y Combinator and venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz. But few have operated on the scale of Rizvi. Twitter has a policy of restricting outside investors to only a handful, but Rizvi has had more freedom to bring in additional investors since he bought a large slice of the company. “He’s not to be underestimated. His approach to traditional media as well as technology has put him in a great position,” said Jeremy Zimmer, chief executive of United Talent Agency, a competitor of ICM. “His ICM investment was viable and gave him a seat at the table and a chance to make a sound investment in Twitter.” TAG-TEAMING TWITTER In late 2010, Sacca approached Rizvi with an offer: Sacca’s friend Evan Williams had stepped down as CEO of Twitter and was seeking to sell 10 percent of the company. Rizvi soon snapped up the shares for $340 million, according to people familiar with the matter. Following that first transaction, the two men formed a highly efficient tag team, the sources said. Sacca would seek shareholders who wanted to cash out, while Rizvi helped raise money to purchase the stock. The friends successfully pitched JPMorgan Chase & Co on a deal to buy more than $400 million worth of Twitter shares in 2011. Months later, Rizvi recruited Kingdom Holding Co, Saudi Prince Alwaleed’s investment company, to buy an additional $300 million in stock in a separate vehicle. JPMorgan Chase and representatives for Alwaleed did not respond to requests for comment on the deal. By mid-2013, investment vehicles managed by Rizvi and Sacca had collectively bought more than $1 billion in shares, a stake that at one point amounted to nearly 20 percent of Twitter before it was diluted in recent months, sources said.
