The ‘Do What I Say and Not As I Do’ Los Angeles Police Chief

It wasn’t that long ago that now-retired veteran Los Angeles police sergeant Jim Parker was faced with making the same decision that Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck made when he decided to make the video showing 18-year-old Carnell Snell in possession of a gun public. But unlike with Beck’s decision to release the Snell video, Parker’s decision would later force him into early retirement and possibly cost him up to $10,000 in fines.
