Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck under fire for not being tough enough on police excessive force


Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck is under fire from his civilian bosses, who increasingly are troubled by his reluctance to punish officers who are found to have killed or wounded people unjustifiably.

"If this pattern continues, it could undermine the entire discipline system and undermine the authority of the commission," said Robert Saltzman, a member of the Police Commission and associate dean at USC law school. "It runs the risk of sending the message to officers that there will be no consequences."

The dispute marks a rare point of contention for Beck and the commission, a five-member panel that oversees the Los Angeles Police Department and has otherwise heaped praise on the chief for his performance.

Makes me wish there was a DSLC clone at LAPD. I worked with a bunch of those guys there and the shit with which they have to deal is pretty much the same as CPD gets. Except when some gangbanger murders a police officer there it's a shorter trip to May-Hee-Co.

Sometimes the only language those coloreds understand is a baton to the head or a lead shower. What these ivory tower libtards want is for the officer to get seriously injured or killed so that a worthless jig, who won't do as he is told, is spared

Robert Saltzman voted for Obama, then told him that there would be no consequences in his action.
