On Friday, LAPD officials released the 26-page review and an updated manual for the department’s youth programs.
Police officers apparently need to be told that having sex with minors is not a good idea.
Case in point, the relationship between the police officer, Robert Cain, and the 15-year-old female cadet.
Cain was charged July 20 with two counts each of oral copulation of a person under the age of 16, lewd acts upon a child and unlawful sexual intercourse, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
LAPD officials are continuing an internal investigation of the cadet scandal, which has cast a cloud over a program that enrolls more than 2,000 young people ages 13 to 20.
The review notes that the cadet program is designed to build character and leadership skills and to improve relationships between the police and residents.
Apparently LAPD officers need formal training on how to interact with minors. That’s the excuse Chief Beck is making for not holding rapist cops like Cain accountable.
