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 to cover it up.)
I struggled with whether or not to post Los Angeles Police Detective Frank Lyga’s closing remarks to the disciplinary panel charged with deciding his fate after the release of that horrible audio recording…but I got over it. He said those things and said them to a room full of cops. That was his decision and no one else’s. No one held a gun to his head and it’s clear from the audio that he was not under duress. Furthermore, I still believe that the investigation into the shooting death of Officer Kevin Gaines should be reopened.
