Garcetti questions LAPD discipline for out-of-policy police shootings, orders review
L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti on Thursday questioned whether LAPD officers who shoot people are sufficiently punished when the shootings violate department policies, ordering a review of such cases going back years.
Now that he’s got a new job lined up he’s a little more outspoken. Seriously, where has this guy been for the last year.
Oh everyone can calm down, our mayor has surfaced and wants to do something! /s
No, not about helping the homeless. Pffft, you must be new here.
“Citing that and a report by the LAPD’s inspector general last year that found newer, all-civilian discipline panels have been even more lenient on errant officers, Garcetti said he had ordered the inspector general to assess the issue once more — this time producing a public report that will outline the discipline received by officers found to have broken policy in shootings in recent years, as well as the outcomes of any appeals they made to those punishments.”
