WHY IS HE OR SHE A COWARD? WE HAVEN'T HAD THE KIND OF MORALE GATES HAD WITH US SINCE HE LEFT. BRATTON WAS A NEW YORK IDIOT. GOOD RIDDANCE. WAIT TIL YOU HEAR ALL OF THE STORIES THAT ARE GOING TO LEAK OUT NOW THAT HE'S GONE. HE LEFT IN A HURRY FOR A REASON AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT IT WAS.

Bratton was certainly better than Parks. He made some stupid policy changes (Flashlights, etc.) but he ruled his underlings with an iron fist and got things done.

Beck will be a good replacement. Im just surprised the commission didn't select 3 candidates "reflective" of Los Angeles.

Hmmm, could they possibly have picked the ones who had the best answers?

Hey, Pete Malloy, you are such an impressive and a reasonable person. NOT. This is Los Angeles you idiot! Wake Up and smell the urine on the sidewalk. Im sorry, you cant smell it in Santa Clarita or Valencia where you live right?

Bratton was a GOD DAMN political idiot. Just another New York big mouth like they all are that come out here and bitch about how great New York is all of the time.

Gates was the Chief of the modern LAPD and he drove Bill Parker, the MAN himself. Beck is not the "Good" replacement, McDonnell is you punk. Jim deserves it much more because he has endured thru the Parks and Bratton eras. Beck was promoted thru the ranks by Bratton solely, which I suspect right off the bat. I even have more respect for Mike Moore for the same reasons as McDonnell. Mike had to fight and scape his way up and although he's a micro manager, he believes in the LAPD that much. He and McDonnell deserve it. The citizens deserve so much better than what we have given them. Im not in patrol but we all should get back to patrol, back to our roots and actually do what is right instead of belonging to specialized units and milking the overtime at $60.00 plus an hour.. All of you take LA City dollars and spend it in outside cities and counties. You are all users and leeches.

The Commission did pick the best of the interviews, big surprise! That's the way its suppose to be done you idiot, don't be so surprised by common sense and then label it progressive and revolutionary. Its just plain common sense.

One of the things Ive learned is that MACK is a good man who is truly a patriot of the country (USA) in light of US history against the black community. As a member of LAPD I am sick and tired of the political crap between the Mayor, City Council and the Police Protective League. All of you are are worthless pieces of crap and I would like to know how many of you in that group don't even live in the City! Im talking about LIVE IN THE CITY, NOT P.O. BOXES. LAPD, start treating our citizens better and not for recap and overtime but because of our motto "To Protect and to Serve." The way it used to be. I am a REAL LA Cop who doesn't own a Jet Ski, a Harley, a Boat and a second house in Havasu, Arizona and a Ford F-150 Pick up so I can haul crap from Home Depot like a wanne be cowboy in Pasadena. The real LAPD cops who live in the city will agree with me!

Detective III in Alhambra is right. Standby when all of these parolees get released. Where will Bratton be then. Oh Yeah! NEW YORK CITY like a little scared punk who rode the good times and took our money and left when he got scared.

Lets go back to New York where I can be the head skank of the New York political BOTOX scene."

WRONG!,, How did you come up with that in what I wrote? Because I gave thanks to Mack for not playing the race card? WOW, you must be another LAPD Jet Ski buyer. Im a white male who has had to battle affirmative action for years but still loves the Department. My words were truth and you know it as you fill out a greenie every two seconds. Now it will be all time off up to 400 hours and the city will suffer as all of you buy more toys in Corona during your days off. You wont buy police equipment or pay for your own training but you will buy a brand new Harley jacket so you can look cool as you watch Sons of Anarchy. I have never seen so many "wannebes" in my life as I have since Ive been with LAPD. There are some very dedicated people, but so many POSERS! "You must be African American," See thats exactly what Im talking about.

I was just yanking your chain with the African American comment and you fell for it. You need to see one of the Docs before they put you on the rubber gun squad my friend. I live in LA, but dont begrudge anyone of my fellow officers who choose to live in a much nicer city the the city we work in. As far as buying police equipment, that is the responsibility of our employer, not us. You want to buy your own equipment, great, but dont denigrate the rest of us who choose to spend our hardearned money on other things (my kids education, my church, charity, etc.) A respectful, thoughtful and squared away cop would not be calling their fellow brothers and sisters pieces of crap. That says a lot about you.

I didn't fall for anything. You were the one who said it. You are white as am I and you brought up the race card for no particular reason. Do you defend those of us who don't deserve defending? You are nothing more than a blind sheep. God you're an idiot! I hold LAPD coppers to a higher level than they hold themselves. If William Parker was here he would kick all of you in the nuts!

I dont defend cops because they are cops like you do. I defend good quality people who deserve it, not just because they got their fat asses over a wall at the academy and nothing else. That comment was referring to the Mayor, City Council and Protective League. Are you able to read? You don't live in LA, I can tell. You by your own admission are a religious cop nut job, Home Depot shopper, Jet Ski buyer, Ford F-150 owner. I can tell you didn't graduate under Gates! You have no idea what LAPD used to be like at one time.

More people have died in this world for religion than other other cause. I read the other day if Satan or God has caused more deaths. I was actually stopped in my tracks. Thats a hard question to answer when it shouldn't be. Im leaning towards God causing more deaths in the history of the world, not Satan. I am a squared away cop with the rank and bravery medals to prove it.

I speak the truth. You spend your money outside the city and then defend every LAPD cop no matter what. you blind no talent punk. This current Department is an embarrassment to the history of the city. Church and charity? You are a poser. most of the LAPD dont give a damn about the people of LA. I do and I call it as I see it.

Bratton was a punk, religion is dead and Daryl Gates lives in our times. To all LAPD, treat the community like we were suppose to, "To Protect and to Serve," and drink a road kit on the way home and love your family. Dont buy boats and Jet Skis and give to the Catholic Church. Be a real honest LAPD cop and serve LA and get ready for the parolees that are coming out to confront us.

My kids education, my church, charity, etc. Shut the hell up you POSER. None of that is true and you know it. You wrote all of that for the other people that might read our comments. You haven't been to church in years, and your ex-wife is raising your kids with her new boyfriend and you have never given to charity you lazy POIII in the valley

Ok time for you to pull the pin. Your ranting and raving is a cry for help. Please see someone in Behavioral Services before you hurt yourself or someone else. Dislike Bratton if you want, but to call him a punk, and dis-respect your fellow officers is irrational behavior. I will pray for you.

I dont think you are an LAPD officer, because no one I know on the job could be so depressed, angry, bitter, mean spirited and such a sad individual. If you are, I urge you to get help. By the way I came on under Gates, and am a proud PII Dog. I too have the medal and ribbons you speak of. I am humble, do the best job I can for the citizens of LA and yes, I do live in the City. You know nothing about me, my family or my religion, yet you state you do. What a sad pathetic man you are.
