The Murderous Police Gangs of Los Angeles

quote [ Los Angeles, America’s second largest city, has a horrible secret. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department – the fourth largest police department in the country – harbors dozens of criminal gangs within its ranks. These LASD gangs have been involved in assaults, the creation of false evidence, and even murder. Now, with the help of the brave journalist Cerise Castle, the story can be told. A Gravel Institute documentary. ]

Fuck the police.

It's been especially frustrating since the Sheriff did an abrupt about face after getting elected on what he promised to do with the department, and the ongoing court drama of him re-instating officers fired for violent reasons. He's a huge road block to reform in the department and I don't think anything is going to get done till they can get him out. That might not be easy as we've seen the crime stats pickup in LA over the past couple of years and people are misplacing the blame of the Police and Sheriff to not respond to homeless issues (non-enforcement IS an enforcement policy) which they've been able to obscure the issue enough to claim their hands are tied vs. what they were doing previously was creating more problems than it was solving.

Not that I can find, but we've touched on it here before.
