Los Angeles, January 24, 2015 — In response to accusations made by the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association President Marshall McClain, Craig Lally, President of the Los Angeles Police Protective League released the following statement on behalf of the League:
“The accusations being made by Mr. McClain against LAPD officers on the scene at LAX back in March are unsubstantiated. We are not surprised to see McClain attacking the LAPD – it certainly isn’t the first time. We are confident he will be proven wrong. This remains an ongoing investigation being led by the LAPD. At this time what we can tell you is that a valid search warrant was obtained by a superior court judge, as is standard protocol for all similar situations. All LAPD officers undergo extensive training on how to act and proceed in a lawful and professional manner and any violation of that is simply not tolerated.”
