Agree. A false arrest and false imprisonment would only expand this injustice.
The perps who really did this deserve every punishment we can throw at them.
We need to know who the real perps are. Cops often have their own agendas, so they are no longer a reliable source, sadly.
To say there was a LOT of pressure on law enforcement to find suspects would be an understatement.
LAPD also has to answer to the Police Commission and only a year ago was released from the Consent Decree (federal oversight). They are being squeezed from so many sides there isn’t much room for “their own agenda,” imho.
