Who ever defends her saying she was a good cop should be caned. She is a murderer plain and simple, she beat the #&@$ out of the woman and then shot her several times. Who cares what she did with her life after that she is still a MURDERER!

Yeah, anybody would straighten up after getting away with murder. Anybody other than OJ Simpson and that cop Peterson. But maybe she's not as psychopathic and pathological as they are.

<quoted text> ok whatever. you'll listen, but will you save my as* when they come and harass me? i dont think so. i can say that this woman has a niece who associates with hardcore gangmembers and even is harboring one who is wanted for murder, she has shown bias towards this niece by letting said neice go with herion in her car that she was purchasing for said gangmembers, and even accessed information so the wanted man could have a heads up that he was wanted. is that enough nosy arse? i've got more but hey remember "i'm full of it" lol
well, that is some interesting information, sounds just like an article in the daily news, someone did something, some place but we don't got a name or description so anyone with REAL information is asked to call the local law enforcement office.
If you have more info there is "we tip hotline" that does not ask for names and does not ask for phone numbers, the FBI will not ask if you say you don't want to give it. there are a few things you can do but you are scared......why? are you the only person that could possibly know these things about them? why would they suspect you if they got busted?

Why do you assume she was a good cop all these years after the murder? Just because the cops say so? There are plenty of "good" cops who commit perjury who never are found out. After all, who is the judge or jury going to believe - a cop or a non-cop? A person who thinks nothing of murdering someone would likely think nothing of lying either. The question we should all be asking is, How many innocent people were convicted because this dirt-bag cop lied under oath?

Couldn't her DNA be near the victim because she was having an affair with the husband?
And her DNA ends up in the bite marks left on the victim? Nice try.

I think we should look at what was done here instead of saying how long it took. Say all you want about our civil servants but at the end of the day, they never gave up and brought justice. So stop bashing the civil servants every freakin day on every freakin post. Don't you get sick of it?
It was a different set of civil servants. The original ones shameless looked the other way (and even ridiculed the victims father) when strong leads (e.g stolen marriage license) were staring them in the face.

cannot believe it wrote:
I met her at Special Olympics and she seemed so nice. I am reserving judgement until the facts are in and someone is innocent until proven guilty...at least in this country it's supposed to be like that. If what she is alleged to have done is true, then I pray for her soul and if she's innocent, then she should be exonerated. As someone else said here, her DNA could have been there because she was seeing the husband. I don't know. The facts have to come out.
How does her DNA end up in the bite wounds left on the victim?

Some people are really retarded. I agree with you
Even without DNA, according to what the father of the victim told police, they should have serious looked into her being a suspect back then Instead the chose to believe it was a pair of Hispanic male robbers who committed the crime. Why would the robbers steal a marriage licence?

Media hype/news sensationalism!!
You had to know this lady and her family. She is a good person.
Has served LAPD and the public for 20+ years and done a great job!!! Look at the thanks she get's for it - you all have her condemmed already.
As far as LAPD - there are good and bad in every walk of life. She is a good one. Took her job seriously!!
The media has reported the facts! Nohting sensational. Just plain facts about the case. Please tell us what is sensational in what they have reported so far. She is not being charged for being a "nice person." She is being charged for murdering someone.

The evidence is compelling. Detective Lazarus commited this crime. The incompetent and lazy LA police failed to solve this case when it was commited. Why? It was easier to focus blame on thieves who had assaulted another person during a burglary or home invasion. How bout justice for the murder victim? Do you believe that police don't commit crimes? Get real !
