First Case of Racial Profiling Confirmed at LAPD

Hosted by

Today's LA Times reports that Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck has signed off on a recommendation that one of his officers be found guilty of racial profiling. Long-time civil rights advocate, Police Commissioner John Mack says, "We've come a very long way." Charges of racial profiling by the LAPD are familiar. What's new is the Department's finding that — at least once — it really happened.
