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).

This is part 2.1 of three. Click here to read part one, The LAPD Captain who Committed a 484.  Click here to read part two, The LAPD Captain and the Missing $10,000.

So continuing on in our Newtongate series which so involves the theft of almost $9,000 in cash and a $10,000 sponsorship check from State Farm , I was passed along these little goodies from an anonymous source within the Department.

If you remember, I told you that Newton Division Captain III Edward Prokop replaced then demoted Captain Jorge Rodriguez.  One of the things Prokop set out to do was to take control of the Newton Police Activities League (PAL) and when he couldn’t do that he had the LAPD disassociate itself from the nonprofit and started the Newton Police Athletic Activities League, PAAL.  Prokop’s boss Deputy Chief Jose Perez sent PAL the official disassociation letter.

Here are some great flicks of LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, Captain Prokop, and Officer Darius Trugman.  Trugman you may recall was one of the two officers I was told that went to a Wells Fargo bank in Beverly Hills to help assist with the removal of almost $9,000 from the PAL account that was then transferred into the PAAL account that was then returned back to the PAL account under the threat of legal action from both PAL and Wells Fargo.

Enjoy!  And–yes Newtongate part three is coming soon.
