Let me get this straight, the Major is a rat! He ratted out the Lt. to the FEDS and then gets a pass and continues to cash his fat ass check. The Lt. is no rocket scientist either, he told his girlfriend who told everybody. Hollywoods dumbest and sadly we pay their biog fat salaries. paid.

It is nice to see an article about Hollywood's Finest. Yeah finest bunch of crooks. How are the people of Hollywood suppose to have any confidence in their police department now? The Chief should quite now!!! How can we be protected from the crooks when the ones doing the protecting are crooks themself. I guess the police are justing doing the same thing Hollywood's mayor and city commissioners are doing, scewing the citzens of Hollywood as much as they can.

Why isn't the PBA representing the Hollywood 7??? Easy answer, THEY ARE USELESS. Where's Brickman? Why isn't he out front running his mouth? He's PERSONAL REAL GOOD FRINEDS of the Hollywood 7?????--mmmmmmmm
You are right, they are useless, however, do not forget that the evidence is overwhelming that the Hollywood 7 are major criminals, PLUS they plead guilty !! No need to get the PBA wrapped up in that mess, these idiots don't need the PBA, they need a moment with God for confession !!

I think you have the order backwards. The girlfriend ratted out the Lt. after she went running to the target. The only thing the major is guilty of is trusting a "so-called" friend. Big mistake!

Take a look at the typical Hollywood cop. Goatee, unshaven, long hair, bald or fade. They look like a gang of thugs so is it any surprise they are trouble

BRICKMAN IS A WELL RESPECTED MAN WHOs ONLY DOWNFALL IS HAVING TO COVER UP FOR JEFF MARANO AND HIS CRONIES(Tony Fernandez-Eric Augustus)- U talk about dirty cop s**t- the feds ought to pull their old arrest files-they would be busy for more than 2 years thats for sure. Also on big question on everybodys mind is how do two police officers(Jeff Marano and his "little" shadow Michael Safran) ran protection for a brothel which hits the papers and news and they walk away-Jeff must of ran to Brickman again for his political life jacket which he he is running out of for Mr. Marano-Once again who did the FBI come here to get 4 idiots and 3 liars?

An "internal investigation" is laughable. If Cameron Benson is serious about getting to the bottom of this he will hire an independent outside investigator and expose all that are responsible for this fiasco, and let the chips fall where they may.Then and only then will the real truth come to light. If tehe FBI is at fault and negligent in their duties then so be it, they should be chastized. If it comes out that Scarberry and other command staff like Louis Granteed are at fault here, they should not only get their walking papers, but also be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Than and only then will the HPD be brought back to some slight semblance of credibility. As far as the administration goes?....a lost cause until the next election.

I love me some white meat!
Truth be told all Benson wil do is a white wash investigation exonorating Scarberry of all/any wrong doing and laying blame on lower ranking officers within the Department. Some will be fired or disciplined the PBA will sit on its hands and do nothing as it is in bed with scarberry and wants to deperately protect what it has. A new Chief would decapitate the command Staff break all promises to the corrupt PBA union, and change the local landscape. This is the last thing either the PBA, Command Staff, or Scarberry want. It is what Hollywood needs, deserves, and has to be done. Beson I am afraid is not the man to do the job. He now is part of the problem not the solution.

I have been reading the commemts stated by concerned citizens since this whole mess started. I find it shameful that there are some who actually defend what these officers did. To defend their actions make all police look corrupt. These people are low life's who my guess is have done corrupt things before this. They just never got caught.Along with the commission I agree Scarberry and Benson need to go. McGarry belongs in jail with his buddies.

CHIEF SCARBERRY: THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN! AS YOU CAN SEE, THE MAJORITY WANTS YOU OUT! HAVE THE INTEGRITY YOU SO FTEN SAY YOU HAVE AND DO THE RIGHT THING...RETIRE BEFORE THEY GET YOU! HPD NEEDS TO TURN THE PAGE AND START A NEW CHAPTER; AND THAT CHAPTER DOESN'T INCLUDE YOU OR YOUR STAFF. THERE IS ONLY ONE MAJOR LEFT IN YOUR COMMAND STAFF AND LOOK HOW DIRTY HE IS. IF YOU THINK HE'S NOT BEING WATCHED, THINK AGAIN. BETTER YET, IF YOU THINK YOU'RE NOT BEING WATCHED AND "MONITORED", THEN YOU'RE AN IGNORANT, WHICH I THINK YOU'RE NOT.SO FOR THE BETTER OF THE DEPT., GOOD OFFICERS AND THE CITIZENS OF HOLLYWOOD, ONCE AGAIN WE ASK YOU TO LEAVE QUIETLY. YOU ARE LUCKY THAT YOU HAVEN'T FALL WITH ALL THIS BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT BECAUSE OF YOU, THE DEPT. IS A MESS AND NOW ALL THE DIRTY LAUNDRY IS SURFACING. I FEEL PITY FOR YOU, BUT YOU KNOW YOU ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBLE AND YOU ARE GOING TO "DISCIPLINE" TEH LEAKERS? WHO ARE YOU KIDDING? YOU MY FRIEND SHOULD BE DISCIPLINED AND YOU KNOW IT.

This chief needs to be replaced and immediately is not soon enough.
