LAPD pays nearly $ 4 million to settle suit brought by
The survivors of a teen killed by police? A woman raped by an LAPD officer? Guess again, it's an LAPD officer who sued over snide comments and "abuse" by other LAPD officers. Over the past 4 years LA has paid $ 18 million to settle around 45 cases brought by LAPD officers. There's obviously some serious internal problems in LAPD to go along with the massive external problems (e.g. Rampart scandal, Rodney King case, etc., etc., etc.) Don't they have enough financial worries in LA already? When are LA citizens going to get fed up with the costs of inability of the agency to clean itself up?
