In, 1971, there was a movie titled, "Valdez is coming" a story of a former frontier sheriff, Bob Valdez, who was the voice of reason in a sea of chaos. This was a scrupulously honest Mexican American marshall who only sought justice.
I am a former Los Angeles Police Officer who fought the racist and discriminatory practices of then Chief Daryl Gates. Practices that have haunted the L.A.P.D. since the 1980's.
Are the Ghosts of L.A.P.D.s' past dimmer than they once were? or is it nothing more than the continued "smoke and mirrors" of the past administration?
