"Abdomen, died. They wanted to drive the driver named Philippe cortese shot four times in the next John chess. 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..

The Grim Sleeper Serial Killer
"From at least as early as nineteen eighty five to at least as recently as two thousand seven a serial killer lonnie david franklin junior eventually dubbed the grim sleeper roam the streets of south central los angeles where he was born and raised targeting young and particularly vulnerable. Women this killer kidnapped raped beat typically shot his victims with a small twenty five caliber semiautomatic pistol often carried in his shirt pocket. He obsessively took photos of his victims. Both dead and alive both clothed and nude often sexually explicit positions saving them as trophies and keeping them carefully tucked away in the garage behind his home where he worked his youngest victim just fifteen years old not apprehended until two thousand ten. The grim sleeper roam the streets of south central for a quarter of a century incredible. He got away considering how careless he was this murders rather than carefully hiding the remains of victims in some heavily wooded body disposal site. He typically just toss him out of his old pinto an into some urban alley. The bodies are often discovered the next morning after he killed him and he almost always shot his victims. Water were still sitting inside his car. He left so much evidence he took photos of the victim shared them with any of his friends who wanted to see him not the best way to not get caught but no one tipped police off to him and he wasn't caught for so so long. Why how nhi no human involved and h. I was a term thrown around by some lapd officers originally investigating the murders in the mid eighties when the killings began and it was used because the victims were often sex workers or all assumed to be turning tricks on side at least an all or at least nearly all of them addicted to crack cocaine and there were black. The term crackhead was thrown around a lot and hooker. It was like the victims weren't seen as humans reviewed less than human. They were black. Crackhead hookers so who cares. Nhi no human involved so no real investigative priority given but this is not going to be some lapd blame game some apathy from the lapd only partially explains why lonnie was able to keep killing for so long.

The Secrets of Nonverbal Communication & Body Language
"So what does body language tell us. What what is it. We can decipher or not decipher. What specifically does it do. Well in my job is interrogator. I use it and attack. Full sense where i will. I'll ask questions. I know the answers to. And i'll see how that person reacts to those questions that i know they know the answers to and then i'll have questions that i know. They don't know the answers to questions. All about places i would make up even as i'm talking to them and we're getting ready to get started. I spent ten or fifteen minutes just talking to them and you get what's called a baseline when they're not nervous not being put on the spot and you see that you remember all the things how they acted when you ask them questions that you know they knew the answer to and they answered correctly and the ones you knew they didn't know the answer to and you you keep that in mind as a baseline for the way they behaved. Then when you get to the point where you're talking about what they're supposedly what they've supposedly done what they're suspected of doing as you speak with them then you can see how their body language changes. They may do things to to guard themselves. They may bring their their arms in closer to their chest for example. And that's what your brain does what it feels threatened. It'll it starts guard near your lungs and your heart and your stomach or they may be using. Water called adapters. At adapters things. These little repetitive movements people make that get rid of that built up stress tension or energy from the questioning is. They're trying as their thinking. Is there as they begin to worry about. Something stress builds for example. They may start Shaking their foot on the jiggling there on the ground or they may start rubbing their arm or their hands or they may just a little bit star biting the side of their mouth. Those are the things that you see those. These repetitive pacifying behaviors. Those that you know that person is under stress. It doesn't mean they're lying. It doesn't mean they're telling the truth it just means there's an issue there. There are no absolutes in body language just because someone scratches there knows. It doesn't mean they're they're lying and it doesn't mean they're telling the truth and most of the time their noses i've i've trained federal judges who thought if you look up into the lapd you're not telling the truth and we all know from studies now. That's not true at all not even a little

GOP Recall Candidate Larry Elder Aims to Help Voters ‘Connect the Dots’
"Welcome back. This is ed morrissey of hot air dot com filling in for hugh today and welcoming our great friend larry elder to the show. Give us a check in on the california recall effort and his gubernatorial run. Larry great to talk to you today to thank you for having me appreciate it. So what is going on in the campaign here. I mean you've really shaken things up here you've you i think reenergize the whole recall effort by jumping into this. And i'm i'm thrilled for your for the energy that you're bringing into this. How how are you seeing things out there in the campaign trail well so far so good the polls show that. I'm head of my republican rivals. But that really isn't the issue the issue is the first part of the battle is very simple. Do you want this man. Gavin newsom recalled it fifty percent plus one voted So the second question is whom do you want to replace him now unless fifty percent plus one says they want to re recall gavin newsom. It doesn't matter however republicans do and that's why i'm urging all of my republican rivals to keep your eye on the prize and the prize. If you have a nuisance surprised is the two point. Two million californians that signed the petition to get this guy out at least a quarter than it or independence and democrats. Who voted for him. Two years earlier the are angry about the corona virus mandates then only angry about the mandates are angry about the accuracy. You know he said up there that french laundry restaurant with the very people that drafted the mandates violating the mandates not wearing masks and that socially meanwhile his own two kids were enjoying in-person private education or at least slammed down education for everybody else in the state now the educational system already pretty bad especially for urban students seventy five percent of black boys believe it or not in california cannot read at state levels of proficiency and those levels. Ain't very high. Nearly half of third graders cannot read it they levels of proficiency and they lost a whole year of school learning three hundred thousand public school teachers. It is estimated by everybody. I talk to that. At least five percent of them are incompetent. That fifteen thousand teachers who are not be teaching now that we're the lapd there's roughly ten thousand officers lapd had. Let's assume five percent of them were bad. That's five hundred officers that are planting evidence or engaging in excessive force racially profiling. We wouldn't put up with it. We're putting up with fifteen thousand. They had teachers. Many of whom ended up In the inner city they're not in the west side not in the valley there in the inner city. That's why two thirds of black parents. According to a recent report i read do not want to send their kids back to the los angeles school district in the fall. They argue that the teachers end up in the schools that need them. The most and this is the teacher's union They are the largest funder of my opponent. Gavin newsom they adamantly opposed choice in school because they know that the teachers will not automatically be union members and they won't automatically get those dues. So i am an adamant. Adamant adamant proponent of choice in public school and my opponent is opposed to it.

"Female officer to me as I mentioned the LAPD the diversity reflects the diversity of the city let yourself in the future I even saw an ad one time with the LAPD was advertising asking for gay people to apply to the LAPD what are see the transgender one but who knows this is the part where elder says this all could have been avoided comply comply virtually every one of these cases we have been avoided had a suspect complied if you where we're going one of the Hey in case you let it go what one yeah amazing how many people take the restraints and body does not want to be restrained the status hold on just one the carotid hole was used on him and the LAPD says we only use it in lieu of deadly force there was a policy where it was used before that for restraint that is no longer the case and that's pretty much the case in most big cities and police departments get the people out in the streets are demanding even further restraints now the one argument that they've made that I think it's valid it is very difficult to fire a backup for the same reasons very difficult to fire a bad teacher so if the same people are willing to figure out a way we can get rid of bad teachers faster that's wonderful we get a bad cop faster but the very same people are perfectly okay with essentially allowing teachers no matter how bad they are to stay on the job and you're shocked the same kind of United to prevail but the tally with the police departments you tell me whether not you're willing to.

"Molina Abdulah is the head of the Los Angeles. Glad matter but she grew up a few hours north in Oakland and was born in the seventies, even though still claim twenty nine, so don't let the math. I'll take it. Thank you. Melina is a mom and a professor of Pan African studies at CAL state I came of age in the nineties and. Kind of the height of the crack cocaine epidemic. That's the height of the war on drugs, the harassment of especially young black people by police was an everyday regular occurrence. I remember like every time I went on a date. We get pulled over. The question was just. How far would they take harassment so I, didn't have to become conscious through like some political mechanism. It was our lives as black people of my generation that there was always tension between black folks in police. And if you were young black, growing up and California's or really anywhere during the early ninety s, you remember the moment in Nineteen ninety-one when grainy video footage captured four LAPD, officers speeding rodney king during a traffic stop. We understood almost viscerally. The police were moving on behalf of someone who wasn't. That home videotape is shown around the world and is this moment when it's like okay, the? Aren't going to get out of it this time. We've had this experience of daily harassment and abuse and a year later. Two officers were acquitted. Ugly terrible situation all night long fires looting, going nuts, random beating attacks, and now the national guards may be ready to move in our chopper clipped. Welsh has been over the violence all night. We're GONNA. Go to him. It's the moment of frustration that erupts because of the ways. The police had not changed the erupted in the biggest moment of unrest in American history in terms of a single city. Mexico KANTER is an historian at Ball State University. He says in order to understand how Los Angeles got this moment. We're in now. You've got to understand with. The city's been through. That's a history that goes way back before kings beating. Los Angeles like many cities experiences the great migration starting in the early twentieth century with then through World War Two where the black population grows exponentially, but the thing that's crucial is Los Angeles prior to that have largely been an Anglo dominated city of white migrants, and the police force was essentially a force that represented that White Anglo. Protestant community as the black population grows the police see that as bringing criminality bringing unrest bringing disorder, and so the police from almost moment one had long been antagonistic to the black community, and you have black migrants in the fifties and sixties, saying things like essentially the police here don't operate any differently. Differently, than how we were treated in the south, that's amazing, so black folks fleeing kind of wild explicit violence of the south arrive in see it institutionalized in a different way once they get up to the north of the West, there even stories of the ways that the LAPD recruited officers from the south to bring to La Right in the end. So it's even there's that kind of reproduction of that system there of white supremacy in racial control, even just through the recruiting mechanism so F- friction has sparked an explosion here and their walk us through just the the uprisings rebellions tension that kind of spilled over in Los Angeles. For this period I study really with the nineteen sixty five watts uprising, the police pullover, a black motorist been they handle him roughly thrown, trying to arrest him in the squad car, and a crowd comes out and says you know like you can't be treating him like this. There's this kind of claim brutality. The key is that that comes on a decade and a half of police, brutality and harassment of residents in the black community, and so it's that moment where it's frustration and anger at the treatment by the lapd of the black community, then erupts into six days of anti-police protests and unrest. Fortieth Armored Division employed nearly eight thousand officers and men to quell the riot. The riots were single. Most devastating disaster befall Los Angeles in its long history. After the Watts rebellion and nine hundred sixty five Kim, the police beating of Rodney King, and ninety one and subsequent riots after the officers acquitted one thousand nine to. Five years later. There was another scandal former LAPD officer Rafael Perez convicted of stealing cocaine became an informant revealing widespread misconduct in the anti-gang unit where he worked. The Rampart scandal this moment where the anti gang task, force crash or the community resources against street hoodlums crashed. Sounds think those acronyms. It's exposed that officers in that Rampart crash unit were engaged in things like stealing evidence and cocaine from evidence rooms to sell to frame suspects, their son that were accused of just outright murdering suspects or other black and Brown residents, and that gets exposed, and it again reveals that there's this systematic kind of racist corrupt practice within the department that it's not just bad apples here or there. So, there's been flash point after flashpoint, but along the way there have been attempts to perform. There's a few things that also come out of the Rodney King. Beating which is crucial is that there was actually city charter reform where they took away? The chief of police, his life tenure because prior to that, but police couldn't really be fired because he had civil service protection, so there is some relief at the lake. City charter structure level at the national level, the federal government passes legislation that enables the Department of Justice to investigate police departments for patterns and practice of civil rights abuses in two thousand one. That law was used to LAPD under federal oversight in an agreement between the Justice Department and the city known as a consent decree. They essentially say there is a subculture and pattern and practice of racism and racist policing with in the police department, and that this can't be solved by just one individual heather actually been gains and progress during those years there some evidence by some of the reports that come towards the end of these consent decrees in a case where they're saying. Yes, there are these changes that have been made whether it's in kind of arrest statistics crime, going down the sense of like polls, residents thinking that the lapd are more fair and. And treat people better right in the institute community policing, but there's a lot of evidence that shown that coming out of that the LAPD in the past five years after the consent decree was lifted twenty, thirteen continued to disproportionately stopped black and Brown residents in cars, disproportionate rates, the metropolitan the elite. Metro unit of the LAPD continued to stop.

"Circumstances, a city budget hearing can feel pretty routine. Can you hear me but last week in Los Angeles, hundreds of angelenos joined the crowded conference line to demand change from their police department. first of all, I WANNA say that it is wildly frustrating. You're paid for show. The city's money to oversee the terrorizing the people boss Angeles, particularly communities of color and the impoverished. I am a sixteen year old, young black woman and I just want to propose the question. Do you know the trauma behind watching countless black men and women be killed by racist police officers. The fact that you did not foresee having more than five hundred people come to this meeting is a sort of breathtaking lapse in responsibility and sort of emblematic of the larger problem. In the wake of George Floyd's killing their voices are among the course of people all across the country who are saying we need reform. We're in a moment with some people are calling for full abolition of police getting rid them entirely. But another growing demand defunding. Reducing the police department's budget and putting that money to work elsewhere. We. Need the fund the Police Department immediately. We don't need these people anymore. Killing our folks in the streets the day after that city council meeting on June six Los Angeles. Eric Garcetti got behind that idea. We're working together on the actions that will make sure that those voices and those calls don't land flat, but that result in the changes we all need. The mayor said that the LAPD budget which accounts for more than half of the city's entire budget would be cut by one hundred and fifty million dollars. He also said he would make one hundred million in cuts to other departments, and in both cases the money would be redistributed to communities of color. Two hundred and fifty million dollars in cuts, so we could invest jobs in health in education and in healing. And that those dollars need to be focused on our black community here in Los Angeles as well as communities of color and women and people who have been left behind for too long. The move comes after decades of tension between law enforcement and the city's black residents tension that's persisted despite years and years of incremental policing reforms. So could defunding be the thing. That finally makes a difference. and. This.
