A link from an aquaintance on another blog was sent in an email today. It’s one of those gems that puts the problems of law enforcement in LA and the LAPD in a different perspective. Even different for me and I have had the pleasure of knowing a variety of LAPD officers, working with them on Neighborhood Watch programs and who knows what else as memory fades.
The author is Robert C.J. Parry and his op-ed piece went live on the Friendly Fire blog in an article titled “Welcome, Commissioner Saltzman. Please Read Your Business Card Again!”. It’s a very interesting article and presents a different view of the problems LAPD faces while bringing Commissioner Saltzman up to speed on what the force needs. Like it or not its a different view that at least needs to be heard.
