According to ESPN
, although Brian Stow remains in a medically induced coma, his father has reported that his condition is stable and that Stow’s vital signs are “looking good.” In the meantime, the Police are following several leads concerning the attackers, including many people claiming that they recognize the composite sketches, and others overhearing persons admitting to being the attackers. The reward is currently at approximately $100,000, and expected to increase shortly.
Although recovery is the main concern, politicians in Los Angeles are not helping the Dodgers’ prospects at defending what is certain to be a lawsuit filed by Stow. Councilman Dennis Zine said that the 200 off-duty police officers hired by the Dodgers are “not nearly enough.” Zine told AOL News that Dodger Stadium is attracting more “gang-type individuals.” This follows LA County Supervisor Mike Antonovich’s calls for increased security and stricter rules regarding the sale of alcohol earlier this week. In response to the attack, the Dodgers announced
that they will hire former LAPD Chief William Bratton to assess the security procedures at the stadium and parking lot.
