Events of L.A. Noire
After receiving reports of several hobos circulating in the area around where Theresa Taraldsen had gotten off the bus, and the spot where she was presumed to have been killed or abducted - Detectives Cole Phelps and Rusty Galloway went down to the camp to follow up on these leads. Upon their arrival, suspect Stuart Ackerman rallied the hobos to fight the LAPD officers, causing Rusty to shoot one in the head, using his shotgun, and others to be beaten unconsciously. Following the fight; the Detectives search Ackerman's hut, where they found evidence linking him to the murder. However, at the time, they did not know that the evidence against Ackerman had in fact been planted by the real killer Garrett Mason.
It is revealed later on in the case by Captain James Donnelly that several city officials along with high-ranking LAPD members have decided to shut the camp down and expel the Marxist inhabitants from the county.
