Los Angeles law enforcement has a very well known reputation, a reputation that is known across the world. It’s known for being very corrupt and very violent. Nothing proved this more than the televised manhunt for former LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner. A ‘rogue’ officer, who’s main grievance was of department corruption, had all law enforcement for miles turn the greater Los Angeles area into a chaotic, lawless war zone. Officers repeatedly misidentified and shot innocent civilians with no repercussions or any sign of remorse.
