LAFD Taking Heat for Hiring Practices, Alleged Nepotism

Hosted by

Historically, in America's eastern cities, jobs in police and fire departments were passed on from father to son. That's not supposed to happen here in Los Angeles, but two top commanders who oversaw hiring and firing have been reassigned. Both had sons in the department. Raphe Sonenshein is Executive Director of the Pat Brown Institute at Cal State LA.
