ICYMI: The LAPD’s New Policy on Executing Warrants

We’re not against the police. We’re not against the police department, but we are against police who commit misconduct (and those who help cover it up). 

Who do I need to personally thank for the Los Angeles Police Department’s new, kinder and gentler approach to executing search warrants?

For those in the business of having random search warrants executed at their place of residence or business at all hours of the day and night, thanks to singer Chris Brown it’s looking more and more like you too can have the benefit of waiting for your attorney to arrive on scene.

I totally credit this to the newer and better kinder and gentler LAPD.  See, just when you thought that even act of God couldn’t get this organization to change–they go and pull a stunt like this.  Bravo, bravo!

Folks need to know about this new policy and put a trusted attorney on speed dial. I like attorney Nana Gyamfi but this is Los Angeles so there are plenty of criminal defense attorneys to choose from. But 🐸☕️

Remember that sharing is caring and when they ask you how you know of this new policy tell them you saw it live and in action on the morning, afternoon and evening news.

As for Chris Brown, he probably doesn’t even know it but he might have just done a whole lot of folks a favor today.  I know via his Instagram posts that he’s taken issue with the LAPD’s treatment of him, he might want to pop on down to the next regularly scheduled meeting of the police commission.  At least that’s what us regular folks do when we have a bone to pick with the LAPD.

For my LAPD peeps, please do tell me who to thank.  I may even throw in a Starbucks gift card or something depending on who it is.

    As far as I know, search warrant policies haven’t changed. I believe that he was afforded a luxury that most do not experience during a search warrant. It pays to have money and celebrity status.

  • So those who are the subject of search warrants in the possession of the LAPD can’t expect the same treatment? Say it ain’t so. I refuse to believe that my political correct police chief would allow someone to receive special treatment based on their celebrity status.

    Without having all of the info on this and JUST going off of what the media is feeding us, it looks like preferential treatment.

  • And hopefully you can read my sarcasm on this whole subject.

    Yeh,,,,I think I got that part. 🙂

  • DTB!!

    Let me get this right; U have a signed crime report, a named suspect, suspect refuses to come out (Barricaded suspect), and nobody calls swat after the suspect says F-O?? New policy or is the LAPD THAT SCARED and SPINLESS to go by the numbers?? UNBELIEVABLE. Somebody in the media should be asking that question to the LAPD. This is the first time a barricaded suspect runs the show, controls his own surrender, and swat is told to stand down. SMH. Somebody please ask the questions as to who made that call. smh

    The protections of the Fourth Amendment have been around for since 1791, 225 years. You cannot enter a home without a warrant, with a few narrow exceptions. Of which zero of those narrow exceptions were present in the Chris Brown situation. Same goes for arresting Brown, they cannot arrest him without a warrant (inside his house) if he will not open his door and let them in (or go outside his home). He did not get any special treatment. He did have enough $$ to get Geragos out there for the search, which I am sure cost Brown $10K-$15K at least….

  • I believe that he was afforded a luxury that most do not experience during a search warrant.
    I believe that he was afforded a luxury that most do not experience cannot afford during a search warrant.

    Fixed.

  • The only way Brown was treated differently was he could afford for his attorney to get out to his home before the search warrant was executed. Anyone with $$$ could do that.
