Los Angeles police are seeking a search warrant for the Reddit website as they try to identify the person who leaked a racism-tainted discussion between City Council members and a powerful labor leader, causing a scandal that has rocked the community and shaken faith in its lawmakers. The LAPD said Tuesday that it's trying to determine the origin of the recording that was posted on Reddit last month. Police want to determine whether the recording was made illegally.

It also featured offensive and bigoted remarks against Blacks and others. Martinez resigned. The other council members have refused repeated calls to do so.

On Wednesday, a main highway linking towns on the east and west coasts of the Big Island became an impromptu viewing point. Thousands of cars jammed the highway near Volcanoes National Park.
