Investigate LAPD for Police Corruption and Misconduct

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

 

Due to the high level of claims, the residents of the City of Los Angeles DEMAND a thorough and full investigation by the Department of Justice against the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for allegations of police corruption and misconduct, which include, but it’s not limited to, excessive force, discrimination, and intimation against LA City residents.  Furthermore, the LAPD needs to be investigated for failing to protect some of its officers, who attempt to report corruption and misconduct within the Department, and/or are victims of discrimination by other officers within the Department.

 

As of today, the public trust has been shattered and the LAPD is viewed as an organization that no longer provides trust and protection to the residents of the City of Los Angeles.  Thus putting the general public in grave danger since some of its citizens may avoid contacting the LAPD for fear of intimidation, abuse, and/or discrimination, among other things, resulting in residents refraining from reporting crimes or in some cases provide assistance during investigations.  Additionally, this distrust has shed a negative and ill view toward LAPD officers thus putting them in further danger as they patrol our city.

 

·        The City of Los Angeles and its residents need a Police Department that can hold itself up to its own standards and values

 

·        The City of Los Angeles and its residents need a Police Department that can adhere to City, State, and Federal Laws as opposed to being above the law. 

 

·        The City of Los Angeles and its residents need a Police Department that can serve and protect with honor, integrity and with the highest ethical standards

 

·        Above all, The City of Los Angeles and its residents need a Police Department they can trust!

 

We ask President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to conduct an investigation to restore the public trust by holding the LAPD to Federal standards! 

We need officers we can trust.  We need good officers who can do their job of protecting and serving the public.
