Thug cops use lawsuits to shake-down taxpayers

A veteran Torrance police officer has accused the city’s police chief of interfering in an internal investigation and retaliating against the officer by denying him a promotion, according to a recently filed federal lawsuit.

Lt. Hector Bermudez, a 22-year member of the Torrance Police Department, accused Chief Mark Matsuda of ordering him to halt a widening probe into possible criminal conduct by other members of the department.

The allegations are the latest controversy for Matsuda, who was temporarily suspended from his post in the South Bay city earlier this year after an internal investigation. Matsuda could not be reached for comment, but deputy city attorney Tatia Strader said the city would not comment because of the pending litigation.

This is all a scam to shake-down taxpayers. Enjoy your Police State.
