40 Fired LAPD Officers Seek Reinstatement

In the two months, since fired ex-cop Chris Dorner sought revenge against the LAPD, 40 other fired officers have filed claims seeking reinstatement, reports the Los Angeles Times.

In his manifesto, Dorner claimed he was the victim of a department plagued by racial bias. As a result, Chief Charlie Beck agreed to reconsider cases of other former officers who believed they were wrongly terminated.

In letters to the officers, Beck said the city charter prevents him from opening cases that are more than three years old. The Los Angeles Police Protective League has criticized the LAPD's three-person disciplinary panels as being stacked against officers because they include two senior officers and a judge.

Chief you definitely opened a can of guts by agreeing to investigate the terminations. No matter what you now find you will have to hire those former officers back to avoid the multi million dollar law suits that will follow.

Looks like the Los Angeles Mayor needs to fire all the LA officers from the chief down and start all over again in hiring. If LAPD, is going to rehire 40 officers because of race, what good is this for the city, you still have all the same players. Let the sheriffs dept. & highway patrol take over police services until LA gets its new hires.
