Soboroff Named New President of the LA Police Commission

The LA Police Department was once known as an "occupying army" in minority neighborhoods, and that helped spark the Rodney King riots of 1992. Republican Mayor Richard Riordan agreed to a consent decree from a federal court, but when the court recently released the city from the decree, it said, "The Question is: will the institutions of Los Angeles, under new management, be able to protect and enhance the reforms that have been achieved?" Yesterday, Mayor Eric Garcetti's newly appointed Police Commission chose Steve Soboroff as President, and he quoted those words. Soboroff is a successful businessman and developer, who once ran for Mayor himself.
