Woke up late after 7 hours of extended watch due to the city being on Tac-Alert. During some down time yesterday, I also read this fool’s ramblings in total. He’s superman, can do no wrong, and anyone who thinks he is anything less than perfect is the real problem.
The LAPD’s Use of Force policy is very restrictive. A UOF investigation in the LAPD, no matter how minor, is unlike any UOF investigation anywhere. It is comprehensive, as investigated by a field sergeant, and reviewed by his lieutenant. It is then reviewed by the involved officer’s station training coordinator, then his commanding officer (captain), then it goes to Use of Force Review Section, where it passes through LAPD’s UOF subject matter experts, then has to be approved by that section’s commanding officer (captain), then it goes to Training Division for review, then the Chief of Police signs off on the adjudication of the UOF that was recommended, or not. Then the chief’s decision is reviewed by the Police Commission. Independent of ALL that, the Inspector General of the LAPD, a former US attorney, also independently reviews the UOF and reports any disagreements he may have to the Police Commission, who is the final say of whether the UOF was In or Out of Policy, and what will be done about the officer.
Having said all that, the FTO that the nutcase said kicked the suspect is a female white, who is a little over 5 feet in height. The nutcase was escorting that particular mentally challenged suspect when the suspect attempted to get away. Down go both the suspect and the nutcase to the ground. The FTO took the Taser from the nutcase’s belt and warned the suspect that he would be tased if he didn’t stop resisting. He was tased twice and finally gave up. I have a feeling that 6 foot 2, 270 pound, nutcase thought he would be the butt of jokes from his peers at having a little female FTO save his bacon when he couldn’t handle a suspect. Maybe that’s what caused his false allegation against her. One of his Academy classmates works for me, and told me that the nutcase was a quitter. During his class’ Pride Run, which is the last run a class does at the Academy before graduating, where all the instructors join the class, the nutcase couldn’t finish it and had to take a ride in the van that accompanies the class. That is something NO ONE does. No matter if you have to crawl, you finish your class’ Pride Run. Also, while on probation, he jumped a classmate and grabbed him by the neck, choking him, because he was told to mind his own business when he told the classmate to not say a certain word in conversation.
This nutcase should never have been hired.
Now , he has a list of everyone who he thinks is at fault for his failure to be a police officer. And he is going after their families. The LAPD has protective details in over 40 locations all over Southern California where families are located. Two of our officers at my station were out in Corona on such a detail, when they went to a 7-11 to get coffee. A citizen walked up and told them the nutcase they were looking for was getting gas across the street. The officers ran to their police car, and one of the officers dropped his cell phone, breaking it. The officers drove toward the gas station and saw nutcase’s vehicle leaving toward the freeway. Our radios don’t work outside the county and the officers were trying to communicate via phone that they had the suspect vehicle. They entered the I-15 and drove for a short distance when nutcase exited the freeway. As the officers drove around a curve, the nutcase had stopped his vehicle and was standing outside with a rifle. He fired on the approaching officers disabling the police car. Officers returned fire through their windshield and one officer was grazed in the head. I took a while for help to arrive due to poor communication capabilities. Those officers were LUCKY.
Twenty minutes later, nutcase is driving on a street in Riverside County and sees a Riverside PD police car going the opposite way, stopped at a red light. Without warning, nutcase stops his vehicle and opens fire from a standing position at the FTO and rookie officers sitting in their car. The rookie is seriously wounded and the FTO is killed. Nutcase then goes into the mountains and torches his car, leaving two suppressed rifles in the vehicle. And now we have hundreds of officers searching the mountains for nutcase.
He’s had a long time to plan this. After he was fired for making false statements during the UOF, he sued the LAPD in Superior Court to get his job back. The case was thrown out by the judge. On appeal, the whole UOF case and all involved were deposed and testified. The court again found in favor of the LAPD, and against nutcase. But hey, it’s still not nutcase’s fault. It’s everyone else’s fault.
Stay safe, all…………
