    Theaters step up security for 'Straight Outta Compton'

    The LAPD deployed gang enforcement officers to provide extra security at Monday night's downtown Los Angeles premiere of "Straight Outta Compton," a biopic of the rap group N.W.A.

    As moviegoers, fans and celebrities descended on L.A. Live for the film's big-screen debut, the LAPD had "several officers" on patrol including special events officers from the department's Central Bureau, Officer Mike Lopez said.

    Theaters in the past have hired extra security to control large crowds, or for films deemed controversial, such as the 1991 gang drama "Boyz N The Hood."

    "Straight Outta Compton" includes scenes of gang violence and overt police harassment, a topic that has been in the news of late with the recent demonstrations against police tactics in Ferguson, Mo.

    Beyond the film's subject matter, the security concerns also have been magnified by theater shootings that have renewed questions about theater security and how owners can ensure the safety of patrons.

    Last month, a man killed two women at a screening of "Trainwreck" in Lafayette, La. And in 2012, James Holmes killed 12 people during a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora, Colo. Holmes was sentenced to life in prison last week.

    So the theaters are saying is that Black people can't go to the movies and behave ourselves? That's RACIST!
