Ride Along in Watts
"Good morning, everybody. I'm your sitting host omelet and obie. I had to take some time today to talk about an issue that is near and dear to my heart. And that is law enforcement. Here in LA, I've had some very interesting run ins with law enforcement in my support of the work that they do. And this is not to negate the real instances of police brutality or police malpractice, but to say that that is not the majority of police officers in law enforcement. These are amazing men and women who are choosing to take on the job of protecting the people around them and working within their communities. And the police officers that I know, I will say, are wonderful men and women who are not only police officers, but they are teachers. They are parents. They are social workers in the work that they're doing, and they really are just doing amazing work day in and day out and working to shine the best light on their profession. Now, one of the craziest stories that I've ever been through, one of the craziest experience that I've ever had is doing a ride along in watts here in south central LA. I've done many of these now in the past couple of years because I'm well acquainted with police and talk about the work that they do quite often. But one time I was on a ride along late at night and driving down a residential area in watts when all of a sudden we noticed a car had been crashed straight into a tree. Of course, the police officers had to get out and respond in a woman ran into the streets screaming about how they needed paramedics. She was covered in blood, wearing gloves, little did we know that she was a nurse who was not working at the time. And as the police officers ran over to the car, they found that behind it was a young man who had been shot to death. By a gang in the area and in the neighborhood. And when I tell you that so many of the people living in these areas are desensitized to gun violence, there were young kids sitting outside watching as this man passed away right on the street. And who's there to respond to it? None other than your LAPD police officers who are seeing violence like this and death and destruction far too often in far more than any human should ever have to.

Jennifer Horn Weighs in on LA's Sanctuary City Status
"Your LA city council out there is talking about becoming a sanctuary city again. Are they really going to go with this? Is that a thing again? Well, you know what's so funny is I read the same story this morning and I thought, wait a second, is it Los Angeles? Already a sanctuary city. I mean, we've been doing any time you go to jail, the jails are not allowed to work with ice. They're not cooperating. So essentially why do we even have to make it official again? Because we've already been acting in this same vein. It's absolutely insane. I think that they run out of things to do. And now that they're going to end the COVID emergency finally at the end of March so they think what other thing can we get into? Maybe we need to revisit sanctuary fun again. I mean, you have so much craziness. You have the LA fire department and the LAPD, all coming out in the LA fire just recently just today actually LAPD last month, saying that they want to they want to reduce the test and the testing and the standard for hiring because they want to get they want to achieve equity instead of equality. And so they want to lower the standards so they can bring in more women. They can bring in more minorities. Here's the thing. I don't care what color you are. I don't care what gender you are, but I want you to be able to pass the test. Show up. That's too much to ask. I don't think that's unreasonable.

The Fight Against Grooming
"We've been talking about this groomer culture. I actually made a shirt on my online store at the office of Tatum store. Are you with Tatum store? I mean, I made it short. But I made a shirt on there this is anti my drink is in a way. Anti groomer, social club. It is hilarious because obviously we make the best merch in the game. But so many people are going and purchasing that shirt to stand up as a parent against these people trying to groom your kids. And you know, I was just reading this article from a PJ media and it says, it looks like the groomers didn't meet their quota last year. And it's just going through an articulating the amount of people that have, I don't want to say historically, maybe that's not the right term, but the amount of people that have decided to identify in the LGBTQ community and it's astounding how all of a sudden people are starting to be gay, you know, more people are being gay now. More people being trans, more people identifying as all kinds of they them and it's almost like they're trying to act like it's a natural thing. And in reality, it's grooming, they're exposing young people to these ideas in order to convince them, let me just give you an example. I'm going to keep it real on the radio today. Some of y'all, if y'all ain't ready for it, you might as well turn the channel. You got to understand this. Gay, and this is not every gay person. Clearly, gay men and women, they recruit. It's called turning somebody out. I've had people approach me on social media. And it's the one dude I went to school with. I thought he was a gangster. I don't boy hit me up like, what's up, bro? And I'm like, what's up? What's up, man? How you doing? I didn't really know him that way. I just remember him from school, and he's like, hey, man, I was gonna tell you something, but never mind. I'm like, oh, bro, what's up? I'm thinking, I'm thinking this dude is like watching me from afar, you know, he kind of admired what I'm doing and he wants some advice. So he's like, I was gonna ask you something, never mind, bro and in my mind, I'm like, bro, I'm not a celebrity or nothing, man. I can, you know, you can ask me something I give you some advice. He was like, I say, what is it, bro just tell me. He said, I was going to say I like you, but he said he liked me. I said, I don't know. I thought you'd go ask me for some advice, bro, you taught you like me. What do you mean you like me? Bro, man, what do you mean you like me? And he was saying, you know, so what he was doing was he was only communicating with me and trying to leverage his way into friendship with me just to kind of test me or something or drop the question on me.
Police Union Says LAPD Should Cut Back on Non-Emergency Calls
"Let me continue on with the conversation I was having about a certain cause that they're not going to send people to anymore. And in these woke cities, this is what you get with your taxpayer dollar. So they're not going to go to quality of life calls, which is homeless people doing whatever they want to do. Mental health calls which leads to people getting killed. Disturbance from juveniles, they don't even care about what juveniles do. They can just do whatever they want to do. Calls from the school, they don't care. Public health order violations, they don't care. Nonviolent calls for service at city parks. Now you got to think there's some cost for service that become violent. But until they kill you, they're not going to send anybody. Under the influence calls, alcohol drugs where there is no crime in progress. Not that there wasn't a crime committed, but there's no crime in progress. Check welfare. And these are things that are not going to send an armed police officer to. A check wherefore call. Do you know how asinine it is? For them to consider not sending an armed police officer to a check where for a car. Let me just give you an example of many things that could be a chick wear for a call. Hey, I haven't heard from my neighbor, I see flies in the window. It's a pretty good indication to that person's been dead for a couple of days. And so the police go in and check well for. But when they get there, how do you not know that the person had been dead for a few days, and somebody got them here hostage? Or there's a woman moaning inside of the house, but I don't know what it is. She sound like she's in distress, but I don't know what it is. You show up and she's being kidnapped and beaten to death. But it's a check welfare because there's no evidence that there's a crime. Nobody really knows what's going on. They hear a faint woman screaming in the background or making noise in the background. They don't know what it is. These calls like check welfare and the unknown cause a lot of times with something a lot more nefarious and police officers don't understand. I don't know until they get there.
Why Lori Lightfoot Wasn't Good for Chicago
"Chicago is way worse than what people think that it is. If you are not listening to drill music, and if you don't know what drill music is, it's a genre of music, only black people do this, by the way. Unfortunately, I guess fortunately, and unfortunately, it's unfortunate because they're black and it's fortunate because it's only one group of people doing it and not everybody. But it's called drill music. And so these guys are rapping about the proliferation of murder that they commit in their own communities and a lot of it happens in these cities like Chicago where they thugging to the cows come home. And then also in Chicago, you have gang wars and you have a lot of gang violence. So most of the murders are associated with gang violence. But kids get struck in the head, probably once a month in this combating drive by shooting, pull a jumping out, ski mask, type, behavior, and hoods of Chicago. And when you have a mayor that do not address these issues, why would anybody vote for her? She's a bad representation for the state. She's a bad representation for the city.
Lori Lightfoot's Downfall Is Bigger Than Just Chicago
"Laurie dirty foot is hanging up her slew foot and then big clown shoes because she is no longer the mayor of Chicago. Now it politics do not matter in this case. Meaning that I don't care what your political persuasion is. When your city is riddled with crime, people are fleeing your city because of the mismanagement and policies that have been put into place at the leadership of their, then you gotta just take it. Take the L and she ended up getting beat, she finished third place, there was two individuals, I don't think it's close enough to do a runoff or I think it's Paul villas. I don't know if it's part of valis or virus virus, it could be valid so virus, I don't know. You know, the ales sometimes yeah, I think that's how you say it anyway. Y'all get what I'm saying. Paul. Ended up winning a 172,000 votes, a guy named Brandon Johnson won, I would not want, but he was second place at a 103,000 votes and then Laurie dirty foot clown shoes ended up getting 86,000 votes. She got 17% of the vote. Respectively, Paul got 33% of the vote.
It Pays to Be a Victim
"I want to just go back to the subject at hand. I think that at least I got Eric's point. I want to get some other people in, but the tearing down. I hear that a lot and I'm trying to perception lies it. Perceptual it. I see I kind of see what people are saying, but at the same time, it's like, from my position, I'm in a world where I'm seeing black people struggle, I'm seeing black people destroy their own communities and nobody's even talking about it. It's like, it's okay to tout, we got ten new black millionaires this year. You know, we got black entrepreneurs. Like, I get it. That's what we supposed to be doing. We live in America, you know what I'm saying? I don't know if it's shall be celebrating the fact that black people are entrepreneurs. That's what she's supposed to do. People come over here with 25 sin, they pocket, they can't even speak English, and they become millionaires in this country. But I do think that what's being promoted is this idea that black men are being hunted by police. So I dive into that issue and I break that line up. A lot of people come on and we can talk about more Luther King till we blew in the face. But how do we vote? You could say Martin Luther King said I want a dream. I have a dream that, you know, about his kids playing with white kids and us not looking at the color of the skin, but the content of your character. Yeah, majority of white people are looking at the color of the skin. I think it's like you tell my Martin Luther King and you ain't even living with Martin Luther King saying. Can we get the elephant out of the room and call out the BS so we could actually be on the same page? We can actually be on the same page. Because this in is not working. You talk to black people. By and large, I think a lot, not every black person. I think a lot of black people you ask, what's the best interest? What is your interest on? What race is the most important to you? And I mean, most black people say black people. But it's like, well, look, you ain't gonna go, you ain't gonna go far. If you picking and choosing. And then if the white man say white man is most important to me, then people are mad. People can go out and say black power, black power, black power. If somebody said white power, they'd be mad. We took the word back. N word don't have no power no more. Let a white person call you in where you mad. Let's get that stuff out of the way so we can begin to move in a more efficient way.
Chasing the American Dream Without a Handout
"Town center. When I was growing up in Fort Worth Townsend, it used to be all black ma. That mall gone. It's coffee ester now. They ain't begging you to they not trying to, it's crazy to me, because and I know I'm rambling, but it's crazy to me because I feel like black people are reaching for a begging for handouts. Not all. But it seems like it's a good number of black people with their hand out begging somebody for something while other people are getting it done. These people from Mexico and South America, they come to America with nothing. They ain't asking for nothing. They're not protesting Mexicans get shot in the head by the police they ain't protesting nothing. They out there working. They got 5 or 6 people living one half. I'm not saying all of them. I'm just giving you an example. They got 5 and 6 people living in one 5 6 families living in one house. They working together, helping this person build this, they build this to build that before you know they got a whole landscaping company. They now out here social Justin Warren. Then they're not here talking about my people done wrong. They are here grinding. Now they doing landscaping for everybody in the city. And we still complaining on food stamps crying about Martin Luther King. I'm just telling you, Jewish people bought in a more modern sense were done. Horrible, horribly. The Holocaust, they come over to America. I don't hear Jewish people talking about the Holocaust. I don't hear them complaining about that as much as I hear. Black people complaining about slavery.
A Justice Denied in the Black Community
"This is what I want us to consider. Of course I have my own opinions about Martin Luther King and I think that I'm starting to really doubt if he was if that was his dream or that was a Marxist leftist white liberals dream. But I see the parallel today, I see the parallel. And it's kind of ironic because after the civil rights movement, it seems like black people begin to do worse. And the trajectory became worse. I mean, even to this day, there is a profitability in victimhood. Profitability in victimhood. I just, I've seen it, I've seen a hundred times. I was watching the documentary just the other night on the rapper Lil Baby. I think his name is Lil Baby. The baby. No, it's a little baby. I said, let me see what little baby, 'cause some of these rappers ain't as bad as they look or they rap about. Sometimes you see them and you're like, oh man, they got a good story man. He's got a good heart. I get it. So I'm looking at little baby. And my thoughts are running crazy. And shame and guilt begins to overshadow me. Because of, and when I say overshadow me, shame and guilt for the black community begin to overshadow me. They made a documentary about this rapper and I think his story is quite unique. But in the documentary, they cry about the white man. And they talk about injustice. Because Lil Baby went to prison for like two years. But in the same sentence, they're saying this injustice in the system and white supremacy, yet they're bragging about the fact that Lil Baby was a hustler making over millions of $1 million millions of dollars selling dope in the community. He was a hustler. He was a drug dealer. He was making millions of dollars selling dope to his own people. You said in the millions of dollars worth of dope, you know what I mean, people have died because of the adult, that little baby sold them? In the black community, not the white folks in the black community. But then they go on and talk about the white man in social justice, but then they brag about how he was making millions selling dope to his own people.
The MLK We Didn't Know
"Is Martin Luther King's movement any different than Black Lives Matter movement? Because if you listen, they don't talk about that Martin Luther King pushed Marxism. They don't talk about the fact that Martin Luther King pushed government intervention and government assistance. More so than he did self accountability. And people don't talk about the fact that Martin Luther King didn't write that speech. Nobody talks about that part. People don't talk about the part where Martin Luther King, if you listen to any of his other speeches or any of the other things that he did, it was very different. He hung around people who were known marxists. People who did not believe in what they project that Martin Luther King is saying today. Show me a sermon for Martin Luther King. A lot of what Martin Luther King was was an activist. And again, I'm not trying to bash him. I'm really not. I'm trying to give you a different perspective. Because if you look at Jesse Jackson, show me a sermon from Jesse Jackson. Show me a sermon from reverend Al sharpton. They don't, they don't do sermons. They use the pillars of the black community and influence of having the title reverend to be an activist in the community to have some respect. And they use that in my personal opinion to manipulate and to get in the minds of black people to believe them. And I would argue that the certain people and I would argue the white Marxist leftist liberals Ireland call them liberals that mostly leftists, they are finding and using these black people influence in these black people giving them platforms to push their agenda. Because I'll go on for Martin Luther King. I mean, look at the people who hung around Martin Luther King. And people, you know, I seen the documents and information and I want to have my guy Chad Jackson on here. They give you the full perspective of it because he's a lot more knowledgeable, but I saw the video. I saw the content. Uncle Tom two alludes to a little bit of it. But there's an Uncle Tom three that I hope that they put out. That goes into it. I saw it behind the scenes that goes into everything about Martin Luther King.
MLK, The Marxist?
"I know that this is holiday for many people. So I hope you're celebrating and eating barbecue and all kind of stuff on the holiday. I want to say happy Marxist Luther King day. I mean, Martin Luther King day, some people ain't gonna like that I called Martin Luther King of marxists, but was he a Marxist? Or was he not a Marxist? This show is going to be hot, so make sure you're ready and prepared. It makes you sitting down. I believe that Martin Luther King wasn't who we think he is, or he was. I think that the media has really recreated a scenario that's very similar to what they've done with the narrative of police brutality in America, the same narrative of Black Lives Matter. I mean, I'm telling you guys, I'm telling you, in 20 years, we're going to look back and they're going to say that Black Lives Matter was an organization that inspired change. It was the new civil rights movement. They're going to tell you that black people were getting gunned down in the middle of the street on by white racist police officers. And it was an epidemic. And that if it wasn't for people like Patrice Kohler's, then Byron Manson white neighborhoods that we would still be suffering from the effects of white racism.

Will Chris Rock's 'No' Last?
"There was an interview that was teased on world news tonight with will packer revealing details about the LAPD's conversation with Chris Rock on Sunday Night. You see guys, the cops came. It was an event. And the cops were saved to Chris Rock. This is battery. That was the word they used in that moment. They said, we will go get him. We're prepared to go get Will Smith. We'll get him right now. And you can press charges. We can arrest him. They were basically laying out the options. And as they were talking, Chris was, you know, he's being very dismissive of those options. He was like, no, no, I'm fine, man. I'm fine. No, no, no, don't do it. Don't do it. Even to the point where they said, you know, look, let Chris Rock finish, let him talk. And the LAPD officers there laid out what his options were. And they said, would you like us to take any action? And he said, no. But I'm going to tell you right now, I don't think that Noah's gonna last. I don't, I think if Chris Rock said that night, yes, arrest him. This story would be much different in Chris Rock's legacy. So that night, he said, no, no, no. Don't do anything. I'm fine. I'm fine for him. He may have had a red bruise on his face, but he was fine. And if you see the video that they slowed down showing Chris Rock's face after this thing happened, it said, man, I know Chris. He's a great guy. He's a wonderful guy. But he was looking around that room as if he needed help. As if he was looking for somebody to understand what he went through. And at some point he caught someone's attention and made a really crazy face like, we're not gonna do. It's sad. If you can find that video watch it.
Crenshaw High Goes on Lockdown After Campus Disturbance
"I went to quench all high school. As you know, and one of the reasons I support school choice is because of my experience at Crenshaw. And at the time, it certainly was not the same kind of high school as was fairfax high where I went for one semester as well. The difference in the academic orientation, the expectation to the teachers night and day. And the school and the school system in the inner city in LA, not just Crenshaw, has gotten much, much worse since I graduated in January of 1970. Listen to this. Crenshaw high school was on lockdown all day today after fists were flying in a massive brawl involving as many as 100 students. Both LAPD and school police, rushing in to keep the peace. Kicking on his Rachel Kim has details on what might have sparked it. It's unacceptable. It's not safe, not a safe environment. It's not a place for your child to go to get education.
"lapd" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"Nick and I are united in telling our bureau chief, we don't want to take it. We want to clean our own house. If we have some dirty cops that are allowing this to happen, we want to clean it up ourselves, number one. Number two, we know that IA is so backlogged that the way they're going to handle this case is they're not going to do a damn thing with it probably for the next two or three months because it's still going to be in statute for a year. So we're begging our chief. Don't let IA take it. We are already conducting an investigation. In fact, I've got a surgeon who's starting to interview people, but the big question is, who's the cop that walked in and kicked him out for front door? It's not his partner, Brian Hewitt's partner, who's a kid named luhan. And I know this kid look. So we're in today three of this investigation. And now the media leaks it out. Channel four news puts out the fact that LAPD officer put the boots in essence to an 18th street gang member while in the custody of LAPD. One of the media know about it, the chief of internal affairs says, now we really want it because the media is now going to start knocking on our door. So we're fighting all this stuff. About the fourth day of this about 5 p.m., I'm sitting in my office. And the sergeant calls me just to be my adjective. Captain got a minute, I said yes. You said I got an officer that wants to talk to you. He says, it's very important. I said, I'll be here. Ring them. After brings them in, sergeant does. And it's a young officer. His last name is cohan. And he walks in my office and the first thing he says is he says, I'm the guy you've been looking for. I'm the guy that took of him. I kept him loose.

I don't get along with him, but that kid that he brought in Ishmael Jimenez is an informant. And I want to tell my story. And I said, be my guest. Little voice in the back of my head is telling me you shouldn't let this kid talk. He's going to fall on his sword. He doesn't have a rap. I should warn him, admonish him, get him a rep, and then let him talk. But I just let him free from. And he tells me this..

"They're assigned to narcotics, they're not a direct report to the captains and the division. Every LAPD division had an FES unit. I had a large one that worked out of traders in the parking lot. They scratched my back. I back, I would help them with search warrants. President at one point worked that FES unit for 6 months. They were loaned there. The reason they stayed so long as they were tremendously effective, the downside of that is during that 6 month period, they took a quantum leap as to how much narcotic they were able to get out of property vision because they could now officially go to any division on LAPD, claim that they were doing a follow up narcotic investigation. And that enabled them to have the right paperwork to go to property division and check out cocaine evidence. They kind of went off the chart. During that assignment, a P three that worked FES that was the top producer and training officer. First he challenged Ralph file Perez and Nino Jordan, which is supposed to have a supervisor present, supposed to want to wire things of that nature. First person actually challenged president durden. They shine them on. The rest of the members of that unit kind of because Perez will eventually say to this P three, you know what? F off, man, this is my case. And they got the he got the backing of the other members of that unit seeing like, you know what? Don't make waves just kind of back off. It's no big deal. He back P three, by the way, left and discussed because the detective three supervisor every time when he finally went to him because he was reluctant to do it when he finally did the D three would do nothing more than just kind of slap him with a wrist, the whole unit, you know, call me, I'm available, time and time again..

He spent two and a half years in prison until Perez rolled over and admitted that they had set him up and he was in jail. He was immediately released a week later. He won the single biggest lawsuit by a person in Los Angeles history, $15 million for that incident. Dang. Well, so now Perez and Jordan continue their machinations. They're in to their neck with what's happening. Part of the look back at that shooting, you know, why would they lie? Why would they make up that story and all that kind of stuff? They felt that they screwed up. That if LAPD looked into that shooting, they already had crossed the line. They had already sold and stolen drugs that that shooting unless they come up with a damn good story was going to take them down. And they came up with a good one. Yeah, no, I was listening to you talk and I'm going that sounds righteous. I mean, if you're listening to it, you're going to make it sounds like and they came up with it so fast. But you know why? Because they were practiced liars. They figured out a way to lie convincingly. But what you were saying, though, is they were more worried. I mean, they were going to get into some trouble for the shooting. Obviously, because he's unarmed, but you could say, well, we thought he was armed. But what you were saying is that they were concerned that if they look too deeply into the shooting, it would lead somebody would start following threads and it would lead into all the other cases and expose what happened. Exactly. Exactly. So as we move forward, they continue with their machinations. They're not drug dealers. They're now with intent when I would back then I used my crash unit whenever we had a high profile warrant. We had to serve. Most of our warrants are big high profile warrants and rampart back then. When narcotic related. Either cases put together by my detectives or by the narcotic unit that worked out of rampart traders in the parking lot that I mentioned earlier. So we were always serving search warrants on headquarters of narcotic locations. And we always used our crash unit because they were tag today the consent decree has done away with all that. Crash doesn't exist anymore..

"Don't they have to get permission from LAPD to use their insignia, their badges and stuff like that? They do and they have it. You know, once they're approved and or else they'll be just a little bit of a change on the design of the bash badge, rather that throws that out. You know, in terms of but once they get the trademark and they can do it, others can follow suit with that. So why would LAPD give permission for a movie like training day? I get it. You know, they're trying to make a movie, but why would they cooperate or even help make a movie like that? Well, we didn't really help them. If they might have a technical adviser, that's enough duty cop from LAPD, but the way we can control that is any off duty job that any LAPD officer desires to partake in requires a work permit has to be improved by the command and by bureau. And there's minimums. You can't work off duty in uniform, except very few select assignments. You can't work more than 20 hours a month off duty, no matter what you're doing. Even if you're an usher in a church, it's controlled so that you don't go overboard. So any after the officer that's working any off duty job, the department has to be aware of it. It has to be approved at different levels. And there's minimums that can be had in doing that. Of course, many those guys that worked off duty for death row records. I mean, it wasn't even aware of it. But we do try to control that to this day. All right. That's what I was getting at too because I mean, it's like I just, that was more curiosity is about why they would allow that because we mentioned training day. But let's go back into the getting back into the story. So then you've got all of these things going on. You know, you've got people initially they started doing it for the right reasons. But then it became easier to cross the line when you could justify it by saying it's for the right reason. It's for the community. I'm just trying to help them. I plan a little piece of evidence here. It's all for the greater good. It's a corruption doesn't happen in a vacuum. People don't wake up one day. And go into the dark side. It happens incrementally. A slow but incremental violation of virtue and honor and duty and rationalization, you know, we're doing it for the noble cause. We're doing it for the greater good. The community is asking us to protect them. You know, how we start to rationalize our indiscretions. The best example I give is the frog in the boiling pot of water. And that includes dealing with it too, by the way. So you put a frog in a bottle, you know how that story goes from the jump right out. You put that same frog, and that frog could be rampart division. In that same pot of water, which is the environment, rampart division as a whole, that frog is rampart cops for all intents and purposes. And you slowly but incrementally start to turn that heat up that fraud will become a neared to that heat that he will become white noise to that frog. And then that frog will boil to death. And will that frog is croaking, it'll say, I don't know how did that happen?.

"Rockers of sergeant sergeant stripes, a D two will have like a rocker sergeant stripes with a rocker, a D three will have sergeant stripes with a rocker with a rocker in a star in the middle of that rocker. Yeah. That's a D three. And so there you can tell the difference in the uniform. Well, no, you can tell the difference too is because most detectives hate being in uniform. So I don't want to be in a uniform. And LAPD even to this day, in total, there's probably about 62 captains. And the department pretty much knows who they are. Reputation wise. Is that enough captains is that too many? I think that's just enough. I think we're still, you know, LAPD is still one of the smallest department we're only about 9800 strong right now, New York as an example has 45,000. LAPD has 9800. He compares to Detroit, Chicago. We're very small. And you got a lot more area to cover too. I mean, you are one spread out. You know, city, too, having been there, but you're really spread out it. There's not very many cops per square mile. 4304 163 square miles, population of just over 4 million. Every black and white that works patrol has two cops in it. We do not have one man units. So that drops the number of patrol cars you can put out, but they're all have a policeman and police woman and every black and white. Okay. And every division. Wow. So that's what we were structured. But you know, that's the one thing. It works for you. It's different for New York, 'cause they're very landlocked. You can put a lot of people out walking a beat, you know, cover a lot of areas. They've got all their different burrows and different precincts. But let's get back to you talking about like laying the groundwork. So you're at foothill..

"Okay, and that goes to the heart of everything. And I do talk about rampart. I was there for three years. I was, there's two captains in every division of LAPD and it's still the same today. There's a captain three and a captain one, just like detective one, two, three. The captain three is like the senior captain, the chief and there was 18 divisions back then. So there were 18 captain threes and 18 captain once. And the captain ones are the brand new captains that go to the command and work with the captain three. rampart is caught up. Can I interrupt you just for a second? We didn't cover this in the pre call. What does a captain two? What do they do? Captain two, generally, everybody that's normally promoted as a captain one. All captain ones go to patrol. And they get their feet wet. And they generally will work with a veteran captain three. And hopefully you're going to get a very strong experienced one. The promotion from one to a two to a three are field promotions. There's no test for it. You have to prove yourself. Your sink or more or less on your own mirrors. Tremendous difference between a one or two and a three. Give you an example. To get from two to three, may take if you make it anywhere from 8 to 12 years. The difference in payback then between a one and a three was about $40,000 a year. Wow. Very significant big, big, big paper, pay difference. So captain ones are newly promoted and they team up with kep. Now captain twos is when you get promoted from one to a two. Generally a captain two will be in command by himself or herself of a smaller specialized division, like traffic. Each traffic bureau, each traffic bureau and LAPD, there's four of them, are generally like the staff of about a 175 to 200. Motor cops, traffic cops, cops that handle traffic accidents and then detectives that do follow up. Narcotics division of LAPD is a huge command. It's about 350 to 400 strong narcotic citywide. And those divisions are generally run by a captain three and a captain two..

"Got promoted to lieutenant, March 3rd, 1991. The Ronnie king. And FBI, Christopher commission, investigating LAPD, that video is showing over and over and over again. The department is two months removed from that incident. Gates calls me in, gives me his badge. He said, congratulations. And he sent me the foothill. Over my head, scared of death. Before this division from my house at the time, I remember I used to drive to three or four divisions of LAPD just to get to foothill. How long it take you to get there? With traffic, maybe a little over an hour. No traffic, 30 minutes, to ten freeway. Same freeway, radical king took when he got off on Osborne in foothill division and that incident occurred. Did you have a take home car then? Yeah, I had to take home. You know, I've always had a take home car when I worked intelligence. They gave me a take home car. And my 43 years was probably had a take home car for 40 of those years. Wow. Well, no, actually, 41 of the years because you took your own car home after working Biden making heroin buys. Right. Exactly. So that was my start of really changing my perspective, my interpretation of police work. What was the biggest what was the biggest shock for you, going into uniform and showing up in uniform and foothill division? I mean, you've been around LAPD, you've been around the department, but like you said, you were more of an intelligent software that just happened to be at LAPD. What was your mindset like when you now start going back into work and now you're in uniform? You're dealing with people who have been working the streets that have more years of experience on the street than you actually do. And now you're the lieutenant. Right. And you know, and then looking at that and I'm really into leadership, you know, I have my own definition of leadership in terms of it being ranked and anchored in virtue, loving your people being a servant leader for getting about yourself, loving your people enough to tell you what they need to say and do things of that nature. So I think on the one hand I was over my head. I was scared to death. I was trying to, you know, what does a lieutenant an LAPD do today? On the other hand, I wasn't I wasn't.

That's my tax deduction. But it was a whole different LAPD. In fact, there was only about 6200 strong women's Parker was still our chief. He was a legend by then. There was a, I was in the academy with about a 102 classmates when we started. 75 of us graduated. It was only a 12 week academy. It was a whole different department, a whole different city. You know, if you're ever familiar with LA and you approach the city, you'll see that huge skyline with all those skyscraper buildings. None of them were there, not a single one. Just city hall, that was the tallest building back then, 27 floors. If you went to the top of that city hall, you had a 360° view of the city. If it wasn't smoggy, we had police women. They weren't in my academy. They had a separate academy. They did not work a black and white. They worked the desk, juvenile, our badges were different. Mindset policeman, their said police women. In fact, all of that change obviously years later with what we had. We had a consent decree LAPD did. It's called the French on Blake consent to create police women to sue the city. Won the settlement. LAPD is one of the most stubborn law enforcement agencies you'll ever meet. Nobody tells us what to do. Takes consent decrees to changes. And then huge change. Tell the folks to, you know, we know what it is, but if nobody's heard of us consent decree before, what is that effectively? A consent decree is a court order. Monitored by a judge and usually a civilian monitor of the department that imposes changes to prevent civil lawsuits that could be very, very expensive and it's usually entails the restrictions or changes.

I heard somebody coming in, running up the stairs, it turned out to be my cousin dictus. Bobby Dominguez, who was the third Dominguez who become an LAPD officer. He wasn't on the department then. He saw me. He came up to me. He hug me. That's when I let it all out. Completely just let it out. I never forget how he held me. What he said to me, and then so when he became an LAPD officer about two years later, that was the tipping point. Now we have three Dominguez cops on LAPD. And I knew then I want to be an LAPD officer. I wanted my dad to be proud of me to talk about me the way he would have talked about my cousin. I passed everything 6 months before I turned 21. I was good to go. And I had to wait actually until I actually turned 21 before I got into my academy class. Well, and you mentioned something, you said that the sheriff's office stopped.

"In fact, I would say that back then, and based on my research about 92% of the LAPD was Caucasian. We had a small percentage of Hispanics, small percentage of blacks, few Asians, and just a small percentage of females. Now, I remember the one atom 12 where the dragon at ones, the policewoman with the skirt, you know? And it was all different. It wasn't, it was definitely a different time. It was. It was a completely different time back then, in terms of policy, public perception. I think dragged it played a huge role from a PR standpoint for LAPD when image Parker was the chief back then, and he approved the dragnet program. In fact, a little side story of Parker was a legendary chief he was our chief for 17 years, with MH Parker. He realized revolutionized police. He created an internal affairs. When he became the chief, there was a lot of prior to becoming the chief when he was a lieutenant. There was a lot of corruption on LAPD. And when he became chief, he changed everything. In terms of integrity, how we dealt with the public, how we were configured. So when he was approached for drag net, Jack Webb, in fact, badge, they wanted to make the badge 7 11. You know, the badge number for dragon? Yeah. What is it? Oh, gosh. 7 14. 7 14, okay. 17, when dragged it starts LAPD bands 7 14 is probably displayed. But when Jack Webb presented the program to parks, Parker, he chose 7 11. And he Parker immediately reacted to that. It absolutely not. That scrambling. 7, you can not change the number right now, or there's no program. And on the spot, he said, how about 7 14? Should that'll work? And that's his bad 7 14 ever since. So 7 11 was what the penal code for gambling? The 70 11 was just a number that for whatever reason he said rolling dice rolling 7 11 and the story goes that park Parker immediately rejected that, threatened not to have a program. That's how strong he was. And on the spot, Jack Webb changes to 7 14 and that's how that bad was created. How about that? And everybody knows it's 7 14. And it's.

"We got our first TV and we started watching dragnet. And I remember how excited my mom and dad would get and I would get, you know, Jack Webb and all that stuff. And then at the same time, I had one cousin who was on LAPD his name was dick Dominguez. And he looked dragnet style. Every time I saw him, he'd have a suit on and a hat, tilted sideways. You know, this was the, this was actually about 1950, 51, 52. And so whenever we go visit my cousins, he it seemed like he always had a suit on. And I knew he was an LAPD detective. And I noticed how my dad would immediately gravitate towards him and talk to him and then have a private conversation. He got to the point where, as we continue as that continues to get what's dragged in, my cousin dick, he was a detective. He was a juvenile detective. And he and his partner would drive their plainclothes car to our House. They're on lease street on east LA. He parked in the driveway and I would be with all my buddies and he say hi to me and I was all proud and he go in the house and they hug my dad and the three of them would sit and I think they shared a glass of wine and but my duty was to sit in the police car and listen to the radio and he gave me his call letters and he said, if I get a call, you have to come in and get me so we can take off and so with that I became charge of the car in the driveway and only I could get in it. All my buddies wanted to get in it with me. Do you remember the call sign? Remember the call letters? It was four W something. I don't remember the number, but I know it was four. W had a W on it. Do you know how was that? Because I know that you guys have different designations based on which sector you're in. Did four stand for a certain sector or a certain substation or headquarters or something? Yes. Each division of LAPD has a number. In fact, the smaller the number is just the history part, the older part of the city you're in. So all the cars in central division detective patrol, whatever the case may be started with the number one. And hollaback, east LA where I grew up was number four. In fact, rampart division, which didn't exist back then, obviously, was number two because when rampart was created, they took half of existing central created rampart that became number two. So all the designation of all the cars throughout the city depending on which division had a number that designated were the division was from and how part of the city was. And what a W stand for anything in particular. Yeah, that was found out later that that was a plainclothes detective car. As they got more, as we got more sophisticated, the juvenile cars took the letter J so it would be four J 20, but that was years later..

LAPD Union Says Don't Bother Visiting Crime-Infested Los Angeles During the Holidays
"By the way, our website Todd stern dot com. Lots of great information for you there. Including a story coming out of Los Angeles, where the police union is now telling people don't come here. Do not come here on vacation if you plan on visiting go somewhere else, it is not safe, and we may not even be able to protect you or your family if you come to our city. My message to anybody considering coming to Los Angeles, especially during the holiday season is don't. A sobering and somewhat terrifying statement from the LA police protective league, the union representing LAPD officers, the message coming as a crime wave continues to slam the city and surrounding areas. We can't guarantee your safety. It is really, really out of control. I sent it to people before. It's like that movie purge instead of 24 hours to meet your crime. These bad people have 365 days to commit whatever they want. The warnings seem to resonate with residents. It's pretty scary walking at night. Sarah the instrument moved to LA from Wisconsin about 6 months ago, she didn't realize crime and safety would be such major issues. I genuinely thought it'd be a safe area. It turned out not to be as safe as I thought. I'm definitely like carrying something on me every single time I walk out of the house when it's dark out. Well, there you go. And why is it not safe? Well, California, Los Angeles specifically controlled by Democrats. Democrats who hate the cops. Democrats who refuse to give the police officers the resources they need to fight crime. What about the legal system that defers to the criminals? Just a few days ago, you had 14 people arrested for looting one of the big stores out there and what happened. They didn't serve a minute in jail. They were released. And that's why the police department is doing a great service to the nation by telling people do not come.

You started having these things happening, but what point did this start getting your attention? Because now what we want to do is start setting the context for the north Hollywood shootout because there is a series of robberies, armored car and bank robbers that start happening before you guys get involved. So let's walk through some of those and what you knew about them because you actually ended up doing stakeouts for a while because of that. Well, the armored car robberies, they didn't run a flag up a flagpole because of those. We only found out about those later. The two suspects that we're talking about Larry Phillips and Emil modest areno did a couple of armored car robberies. But then they switched to banks. In LA is known at that time LA was known as the bank robbery capital of the world. You could have a bank robbery happen just about any time of the day. There was well, let's talk about that for a second. In your mind, being swapped being a cop out there in your mind, what led to this thing where it was like anybody wanted to rob a bank when to LA? Is that just because of, you know, the one thing we didn't talk about in this gets into talking about the banks? Los Angeles, the area, you guys covered is a very disperse area. I mean, it's a huge area to cover and the number of officers you have to do it with. Is less than what people think. So getting into the mid 90s now, you know, how many officers were on LAPD at the time, if you remember. Oh, LAPD, I think through that in my first part of my career, only had about 8000 and half of that would be in the street. Now you're dividing that half into 16 precincts, not counting all your specialized units. Your device units your. The bike details and all of that. So at any one time, you might have this is going to sound really bad. But you might only have 20 officers on shift on a shift at one time. Depending upon the area, the morning watch, you might have less because you don't have as many calls for service. At night watch, you might have more because there are more calls for service, day watch, same thing. So each division is a little bit different for what their needs are and also for what the area is. But when you think about it, you're talking about 2030 police officers and that's it for that whole area. Yeah, and what was the population like around that time? I mean, between the city and the county, oh boy, I don't know you remember how big I mean, you know, you start thinking it's maybe 5 or 6 million or something like that. What I'm doing is just kind of putting it in perspective because New York had 7 or 8 million people in New York City. Oh, no, we have Los Angeles, and you stop and think about it. Los Angeles is the second largest city in the United States. And that's right behind New York. So we have 8000 police officers. They have 35,000 police officers. Yeah, that's the point I was trying to make. So you can get the idea that we have 30 police officers and they're responding to radio calls all over the city. And an area you take vann eyes that can go from a huge area to other divisions like rampart that's not as big. So it really depends upon what the area is to how many police officers they have. And detectives and specialized units and motors and traffic and all that..
"lapd" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"At the time that you've got cut loose, you're now working van nuys division. When did LAPD actually because LAPD is credited for basically creating the first S.W.A.T. team, right? Yes. Do you remember when that happened was that was that right about the time you came on or was that afterwards? No, it was actually before that. Before? It was about the late mid late 60s. I came on in 71, went through the police academy, January 25th. Was the student worker in the mid 70s. And a very good friend of mine, who has since passed away, Daryl Gates who actually started S.W.A.T.. He was a good friend of mine. He's very well known, too. Pretty much. Probably, I think arguably people will tell you that he was the last good chief that LAPD has had. And I have to agree with it. Well you say that not 'cause you no longer work for LAPD and you don't have to worry about them, stopping your checks. Yeah, but they can stop my pension check, I guess. Yeah. Whatever. Just First Amendment and stuff. It's great being a well, you're not technically civilian. Well, now I don't want to, I don't want to get away from what we're talking about, but you take a look at it now and it's a political position. When Daryl Gates was there, it wasn't a political. It was a composition. He could say and do whatever he wanted. He told the press and the exactly what he felt. You can't do that now, because the chief of police is appointed by the mayor. So he's not going to tell his boss to go pound sand when that's the guy that pretty much writes your check. Right. You know, and that's you're right. I think it's relevant though because it really gets into a lot of the attitudes now about policing, and the way that you guys had to adapt to your work, you go from chiefs being chiefs to chiefs being politicians, and it changes the complexities and the complexion of how you respond to things. Let's talk about S.W.A.T. for a second. When you first got on, what did you know about swatted LAPD? What was your view of them? When you saw them, what did you think? S.W.A.T. was the furthest unit in my mind that I would ever go to. No prior military experience at that time they were looking for prior military experience. S.W.A.T. started, as a result of the 1965 watts riots. And at that time, there were groups that were shooting at the firemen trying to put fires out, as a result of the riots. And LAPD at that time did not have any type of a counter counter sniper team or any kind of a team to be able to deal.

"That's when they find out that Garner posted this manifesto on his Facebook page. And then tie him as a suspect for Monica Kwan and Kate Lawrence's murder. You know, and part of this that may have triggered this too, and we wanted to add that data in there too is that February 1st, the two days before three days before this all starts. Dorner discharges honorably from the navy. So now he's been in the navy the whole time now. He's out. Now I think he's putting he's been putting together his plan. February 3rd, you got the couple folks. You've got Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence killed in Irvine, but February 5th, this is the other thing when we're pulling up some additional research. I think you were talking earlier with the truck, is actually what he was trying to steal was he was looking at or he was down at the navy hotel in San Diego. And I think they were trying to figure out where he was at, and he still had an ID card. He still had some stuff down there. So he was down in San Diego. After this stuff happened. So how far have a drive is it from Irvine to San Diego? I think it probably might be maybe I don't know with traffic and everything. Maybe about 45 minutes. An hour. Okay, yeah. So not really that much then. Yeah. Yeah, so he's announced as a suspect, but then again, this was the attempted boat theft than in San Diego. He tried to steal a boat from somebody in San Diego. He failed and fled and later they find a wallet with his ID and an LAPD detectives badge. Near the San Diego airport, which makes you think, is that hey man, he's trying to use he's trying to impersonate cops. Maybe to get closer. So as this timeline continues on, the thing we're seeing is trying to impersonate a cop, he's got the detectives badge. You found all of that stuff. I'm surprised. Well, before we get into the next part, I'm surprised Alex that he threw away his uniform and stuff. You know, and through all of this stuff, it's like he continuously, it seems through this whole incident. Gets rid of her disposes of guns, ammunition, you know, lots of stuff that you thought he would want to hang on to. Yeah, just kind of weird in this with National City just kind of seems like he was trying to get, you know, they would find out who he was and that he was they would eventually see his manifesto on his Facebook page and stuff like that. Well, so anyway, so when we move forward, so like the February 6th, they announced him as a suspect. They announced threats. They say authorities named dorner a suspect in the Irvine killings. They said he issued a multi page manifesto complaining of his treatment in LAPD and he made violent threats against LAPD officers..
Is the O.J. Simpson Murder Story Actually Over?
"But when it comes to the Simpson case, is anything really finished, because OJ told the Atlantic himself that despite the evidence against him and his own confession in the book, if I did it, he avoids LA like the plate to this day because he's afraid to meet the real killer. We laughed about that. We always laugh, oh, he's gonna go find the real killer, but maybe he was telling the truth. You know, I mean, and the problem is the reporter in Miami who got this got trolley to talk on the record says he contacted the LA police department, and they wouldn't comment about Ehrlich's possible involvement. And the public information director says that if a formal complaint would have been live, the department would look into it, but the case is closed. We're not going to reopen this case. And that's the way it stands for OJ now. The whistleblower insists that reopening the case is precisely what the LA needs to LAPD needs to do. And the whistleblower meaning the guy who gave me the script, who I can't mention his name, they should reopen the case if for no other reason than to exclude the possibility that somebody named Charlie was present at the scene of the murders. As the man whose name I can't mention says, if this guy was there, then someone should do something. Whether they're a reporter and investigator, law enforcement, a Hollywood studio executive maybe. Somebody should do something. I find it really intriguing and this guy's story has grown on me since I first brought it to you guys a year and a half ago or so. He's consistently stayed on top of it. He sent me a multitude of things on text and an email that kind of in the beginning I was like brushing off, but the more I would look at stuff, I'd say maybe maybe. But we're so OJ down. We're so drunk on the OJ story that it's easy to just go off. I can't hear the story no more. It's sold. It's over. But then again, is it over?
