What isn't mentioned is that at a time when Los Angeles is laying off city workers and saying that they can't pay for the civilian pensions or to
keep libraries open, they just gave the LAPD a pay raise and took cuts from everyone else. Maybe this is why the politicians aren't in jail, they pay
off the cops and do it legally.
By the way, my father was in both the LAPD and the County Sheriffs and he was as honest and decent a man as I have ever known. My father also did not
believe that police should be in unions and he didn't think they should be allowed to strike. The Rampart Scandal has shown what has happened to the
LAPD. For a time they were the best police force in the United States and during the 80s they changed. The people who will dislike this rule the
absolute most and the honest and hardworking members of the LAPD, the ones who want to see the department made better and see the bad cops leave. And
no, I am not a police officer; but, I know a lot of people in law enforcement.
