Great news! The Los Angeles Times reports that LAPD Chief Charlie Beck’ announced Friday that he would step down in June, before the end of his second and final five-year term.
The white elites at the Times immediately sang is praise. “Even though he is not elected, he is a savvy politician who correctly read what the mayor, the Police Commission and the people of Los Angeles wanted from him and what to an extent he was able to deliver: low crime, no scandals, little controversy. He became adept at the regular radio interview and the soundbite on immigration enforcement and criminal justice reform.”
Seriously? This is a guy who has lead one of the nation’s most brutal criminal enterprises, terrorizing the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, and people of color? WTF? Don’t the reporters at the Times read their own newspaper?
Angelenos of color need to know where the Times stands on police brutality directed at them. Now they do.
