“Put the wrong people in the position I’m in, you can get away with anything. The shit I could get away with is crazy,” an anonymous LASD midlevel deputy told the RAND surveyors. The deputy subgroup/gang report really gets going around p 115… pic.twitter.com/rEt8dRYNrE

Thanks for not letting this story get buried. It's time our law enforcement agencies work to protect all of us no matter our background. I think the training in the LASD and LAPD needs to drastically change. Also the recruiting process is also obviously flawed.
There’s quite a bit about LASD’s decentralized training that varies widely from station to station. In some instances, training officers play a direct role in “orchestrating subgroup membership for some groups” and even “act as ‘shot callers.’”pic.twitter.com/4lES1QAjpq
