where exactly in the report did it say that? please tell me the page number.
certainly - here you go (this is the Christopher Commission's update introduction on page 1):
The highly publicized beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers in March 1991 and the riots in Los Angeles following the acquittal of the officers graphically demonstrated the increasingly wide gulf and growing antagonism between law enforcement agencies and minority communities in the Los Angeles area. In response to the Rodney King beating, an independent commission headed by Warren Christopher was formed to "examine any aspect of the law enforcement structure in Los Angeles that might cause or contribute to the problem of excessive force."1 A similar commission led by special counsel James Kolts was appointed to conduct a review of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department (LASD) in the wake of a number of shootings of minorities by LASD deputies. The Kolts Commission was directed to examine "the policies, practices, and procedures of the Sheriff's Department, including recruitment, training, job performance and evaluation, record keeping and management practices, as they relate to allegations of excessive force, the community sensitivity of deputies and the Department's citizen complaint procedure."2
The Christopher Commission report on the LAPD found serious deficiencies in the department, including a significant number of officers who repetitively misuse force, inadequate supervisory and management attention to the misuse of force, racism and bias within the department, an organizational culture that emphasizes crime control over crime prevention, deficient handling of citizen complaints, and a lack of accountability on the part of the chief.3 The commission made numerous recommendations for improvement in the areas of recruitment, training, monitoring, discipline, and complaint processing. Like the Christopher Commission, the Kolts Commission discovered a department with too many officers who resorted to the use of excessive force, an inadequate disciplinary system, deficient supervision, and inattention to the needs and desires of the community.4 The commission recommended reforms in citizen complaint processing, improvements in the disciplinary system, implementation of an early warning system to monitor use of force, increased recruitment to diversify the force, and modifications in the canine policy.
so do I. you're making a mockery out of this and you're wasting my time.
no I have not heard of them. what about them?
that's precisely what this fact-finding investigation was for. since then, LAPD was monitored by federal oversight and several leading experts were hired by LA/LAPD to create training courses and policy to ensure that it will not happen again.
btw - I'm confused. a rhetoric that caused a large angry mob to nearly destroy LA? what rhetoric? wasn't LA riot caused by officers' acquittal?
That was just the introduction ....
