Despite the concerns, there does not appear to be support for restricting the shrines in Los Angeles County. The Oakland Police Department placed limitations on street memorials after a spate of gang-revenge shootings in 2004 ended with a slaying at a street memorial. Oakland policy allows for makeshift shrines to stand for 48 hours before police or city maintenance workers remove them. Berkeley officials went a step further in October after a series of shootings left two people dead and one person wounded. A woman taking out her trash was hit in the stomach by a stray bullet fired by someone at a nearby memorial. “If it creates a public safety issue, the city manager has the authority to remove them immediately,” said Deputy City Attorney Lisa Caronna.
