How Racial P.C. Corrupted the LAPD
The American Enterprise Online ^ | Jan Golab

Posted on 05/06/2005 9:28:58 AM PDT by Abathar

The LAPD was once known as "the world's greatest police department," due largely to its stringent character screening. Back in the era of Sergeant Joe Friday, LAPD candidates were checked out as thoroughly as homicide suspects. Even a casual relationship with any known criminal excluded a candidate from being considered as a police officer.

All that is now history. In a bid to appease racial activists and meet federal decrees, strict screening and testing measures were dismantled. New black and Hispanic officer candidates were hustled into the ranks at any cost. What former deputy chief Steve Downing called "a quagmire of quota systems" was set up, and "standards were lowered and merit took a back seat to the new political imperatives."

It was back in 1981 that the LAPD first entered into a federal consent decree that instituted quotas for female and minority hiring. To meet these demands, the standards for physical capability, intellectual capacity, and personal character were lowered. The result was that many incapable or mediocre recruits--even significant numbers with criminal links or gang associations--were accepted into the department.

L.A. is not the only city that damaged its police force in a headlong rush for "diversity." During the 1990s, Washington, D.C. had to fire or indict 250 cops after a similar lowering of standards, and New Orleans indicted more than 100 crooked or inept cops who had been hired--it was later found--due to "political pressures." Miami had a similar scandal after scores of cops hastily recruited in response to race riots and an immigration surge got involved in robbing cocaine dealers and reselling their drugs. "We didn't get the quality of officers we should have," acknowledged department spokesman Dave Magnusson.

Always sacrifice the safety and security of the citizens for the sake of feel good policies. The citizens don't matter anyway. What matters is putting people in jobs that pay well, even if crime goes up, more people die, and fear rules the streets.

Affirmative action, sex and race quotas, and diversity programs are simply government mandated discrimination against white men.

The LAPD was once known as "the world's greatest police department,"..

This is news. A reading of almost any history of Hollywood or any biography of people from Los Angeles (Erle Stanley Gardner or Raymond Chandler) or reading some history of crime in the US would seem to indicate that the LAPD was always one of the most corrupt police in the US.

I believe any big city police department is likely to accumulate a certain number of crooked cops just because of the nature of the scumbags they deal with every day. The NYPD and LAPD are both very closely watched due to their proximity to media types, so any misdeeds by officers from those departments tend to be blown out of proportion.

I know the Baltimore City Police Department has a history with as much corruption and incompetence as any, but outside of Barry Levinson's fictional "Homicide: Life on the Street" you generally do not hear about it outside of Maryland.

I live in Los Angeles. Thanks to all the man-hating bigots in the Femi-crat party LAPD and all other PD's in CA are trained under VAWA - STOP grants to be man-hating goons who arrest men on the slightest accusation of domestic violence by a female. There's no due process and restraining orders are issued like candy. Domestic violence advocates routinely coach females to lie to gain advantage in divorce and child custody proceedings - not to mention just general revenge when a relationship is going badly. "Hell hath no fury like a woman who percieves herself scorned." Of course destruction of the traditional family is a major goal of the Commie-crat party. LAPD officers who do not follow the "goals" of the gender feminists for arrests of men are disciplined or otherwise harassed, and kept from doing there jobs in a fair and responsible manner. LAPD is now the enforcer of the police state hatred of the Femi-crat state of Commie-fornia. Los Angeles is just one of the major cities that works that way.The Violence Against Women Act is one of the most insidious, one of the biggest frauds to be foisted on the taxpayers of America in the history of America. VAWA is coming up for reauthorization, and will be asking for billions more dollars to falsely and criminally destroy more lives for the sake of the Femi-crat hate agenda. It is time to end the gender feminist Violence Against Women Act and give our traditional families and law enforcement a badly needed break, Make the Violence Against Women Act Gender Inclusive, or Dump It! ...and it all begins in the tens of thousands of tax-payer funded, Stalinist, man-hating, women's studies classes taught in America's college classrooms.

Here is this quote from an article by Glenn Sacks a Los Angeles based radio show host and journalist,

"Domestic violence activist Greg Schmidt, a police lieutenant who created the Seattle police department's domestic violence investigation unit in 1994, says that cases like Erickson's demonstrate the way men are often presumed guilty in domestic disputes. He notes that mandatory arrest laws, such as California's, frustrate police officers because they are "expected to make arrests in petty incidents, often where the woman is the aggressor, the abuse is mutual, or it is unclear who the aggressor was." "The domestic violence industry--the trainers, the shelter directors, etc.--can spin things however they want," he says, "but most street cops know that women are just as likely to start domestic disputes as men are. But arresting women puts you under lot of scrutiny. It's bad for your career." Schmidt also criticizes the dominant aggressor doctrine which discourages dual arrests (which are often an appropriate measure) and instructs police to downplay who struck the first blow. Instead, police are asked to focus on who is (supposedly) in control of the situation and who is more fearful--often code words for "arrest the man." Part of the problem is the training that police officers receive from the domestic violence industry, which insists that 95% of domestic violence is committed by men. Southern California domestic violence consultant Anne O'Dell, who has conducted over 500 domestic violence trainings of police officers and commanders, judges, district attorneys, and victim advocates, tells her trainees that "if a police officer is arresting more than 8% women, you've got a real problem. When an officer arrests 12% or 15% women, I'm outraged." O'Dell says that dual arrests should occur in no more than 3% of incidents."

There is virtually no current data which supports the "95%" myth. According to the US Department of Justice's 1998 Report on the National Violence Against Women Survey, men comprise nearly 40% of all domestic violence victims. California State Long Beach University professor Martin Fiebert has compiled an on-line bibliography (www.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm) which examines 130 scholarly investigations (104 empirical studies and 26 reviews and/or analyses) which demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners. The aggregate sample size in the reviewed studies exceeds 77,000.

Excerpt ...

"By 2001, the LAPD was 884 officers short of full strength. Half the cops on the street suddenly had less than five years experience. The remaining veterans continued to leave in droves ... "

That was 2001. Imagine the gang bangers on the force now.

The big cities seem to like swimming in their cesspools. No need for lifeguards.

Hey are you two golfers? I am a hacker- but I enjoy golf.

Here is one guy I really admire: Tiger Woods.

Not only is her an outstanding American, for his support of our troops and his generosity towards children- IMO- he is a great golfer!

Further- I have used his program, Start Something, START SOMETHING HERE, with my homeschool students. I highly recommend this program to any adults who are looking for a program to develop leadership in young people. It is a program developed by Tiger and his Father And it is free to anyone who wants it.

Oh- silly me....I digress.. Let's see what were we talkin about? Oh yes- the news- look! Tiger makes the news. As far as I am concerned this young man is a fantastic role model for my young boys.

READ about Tiger here:

BTW- I lived in Hollywood during the riots and Rodney King incident. The LAPD officers I met and relied upon for my safety were wonderful, hard working people who had one heck of a tough job. I saw crap I never want to see again- including a neighbor who had been shot. There are a good many hoodlums in LA - and the LAPD has it's share of nonsense to put up with.

Yes, I am a golfer. I haven't cracked 100 in 18 holes yet, but I did chip in an eagle on a par 5 once.

I'm straight as an arrow and looooooong off the tee. Put an iron in my hand, other than a pitching wedge, and that's all she wrote. It's three-putt bogies after that.

The LA police department in the early sixties was regarded by the N. Eastern police agencies as the one to emulate. Rightly, or wrongly.

That is so cool. I aspire to be a better golfer. Every year I say this is going to be the year for lessons for me.. and then I run out of time. I putz around at the driving range a bit-however the kids think it is funny to try and distract me when I am addressing the ball. :]

My kids are young. SO I always hold hope for the future when I have more spare time.

Well then- Happy golfing!

BTW- speaking of sports- do you like racing?

I am an Indy 500 girl myself! And it is right around the corner!!

No. I'm not into racing. Went to the infield for a race at the Texas Motor Speedway last year, and still didn't get it. I'd rather watch an ace on a par 3 or knocking a quarterback into next week than racing.

OH NO! You are missing out friend! Open wheel racing is great! But you got to try the good seats- it is even difficult for a veteran race fan to follow what is going on from the infield.

I don't care to watch it on TV either. Being there front and center is the most fun.. but it will spoil you forever! I hope you will try it again- you just may like it!

hrmn...

I would like to point out that anyone who in all earnestness maintains that corruption of police forces is exclusively (or even essentially) a modern, black, and major-metropolitan phenomenon is no serious -nay! not even a casual- student of the history of the topic.

Such an one could easily gain the rudiments of a clue by reading two fine books of "historical" fiction by the fine historian Caleb Carr: The Alienist and Angel of Darkness. Such a slight and enjoyable expenditure of time and effort would amply reward the reader with the beginnings of an understanding of the endemic nature of police corruption.
The reader could then quite profitably pursue more general and detailed knowledge of the subject, branching out to encompass not only the mercenary and political corruption of metropolitan police forces but also the histories of similar corruption of small-town police forces nationwide. As an example, to get such a reader started, consider the penetration of such forces by the Ku Klux Clan, from 1880 to 1980... One could also look into the current influence of methamphetamine networks on such small forces.
The field is quite richly detailed and quite, ah, polychromatic.
One need only look, with eyes undimmed by melanin-selective filters.

I would further posit that one who *makes* so false a claim as defined above, yet who is NOT pathetically ignorant of the history of the subject, is almost certainly one who pursues an odious agenda of propaganda and discord.

For the Mods, an observation and a question:
There seems to be a building wave of black-bashing -some oblique, some direct- going on here on FR. How long shall this be permitted to continue? It galls me that some of my family here are being pestered by small-minded, shriveled-soul buffoons. It wounds many very good FReepers, it rouses my ire, it demeans this great site, and befouls conservatism in general. I wish to register with you my concern in this matter. Thank you.

RKBA (and others):
Many of you are already aware of the wave of unpleasantry to which I refer, above. I am beginning to think that we, as FReepers, might need to initiate a bit of self-surveillance and, as far as it lies within our powers, a bit of self-policing. This puling racist grotesquery needs to be crushed. What say you?

And the repeat pic posting troll also needs to be prosecuted as he's stalking Mhking, cyborg, and others as well as committing internet harassment which is prosecutable under law.

The two are intertwined and linked.

LAPD was a cesspool of corruption in the '40's and '50's, but was cleaned up considerably under Chief Parker in the early '60's. For the next 20 or so years it was a model department. And then... well, you know the rest.

People should deal with the reality of the history of the LAPD and not an idealized version of what they think it was. The LAPD had been out of control for at least 20 years prior to King. They were rude, racist and acted outside the law for a long, long time. They had KKK newsletters among themselves, for God sakes.
The LAPD is not an organization brought down by PC. It was brought down by Gates, his unions and their predecessors.

It wasn't a model dept. to the citizens and to the thousands who experienced their "kick first and ask questions later" style.
I never crossed them or had to deal with them but I watched them in action many a time and saw a lot of out-of-control behavior. Well, it would be called that if you or I did it but they used it to totally control people that showed not the least bit of resistance or rudeness.
LA cops were nasty bastards in the 1960s. The King incident was no surprise.

It was back in 1981 that the LAPD first entered into a federal consent decree that instituted quotas for female and minority hiring. To meet these demands, the standards for physical capability, intellectual capacity, and personal character were lowered. The result was that many incapable or mediocre recruits--even significant numbers with criminal links or gang associations--were accepted into the department.

Sounds like whats been imposed on the school systems in the country.
