“We want to come up with ways to reduce biases and we want reform, but we want it to be fair for our officers and we want it to actually work,” said Los Angeles Police Protective League director Joe Massie. He claims that a large number of illegal guns are seized during traffic and pedestrian stops. According to the LAPPL, in 2021 the Newton Divison of LAPD recovered 817 firearms during 726 incidents. Of those incidents 699 arrests were made, 507 of which came after traffic stops.
“This is going to leave those guns — leave those bad drivers on the road and it’s going to hurt people of all communities regardless of your skin color,” said Massie.

State Senator Kamlager should stop spreading lies about police officers and social workers.
When does a criminal crew try to rob someone at gunpoint during the middle of the day? When they don't fear prosecution. When your DA says no gun enhancements. Shootings, murders, robberies during the middle of the day are now the norm.
This is what it looks like when criminals don't fear punishment. Over-the-top, broad daylight grabs of mounds of merchandise. This is Gascon's world. Where felonies are misdemeanors, misdemeanors are pled down, and repeat offenders get infinite do-overs.

The City of Los Angeles impounds the cars of unlicensed drivers for up to 30 days, which costs an average of $2000. Mayor Villaraigosa and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck want to end that practice—but the police rank and file say that would endanger public safety. As we’ll hear, it’s all about the lives--and livelihoods--of illegal immigrants, who aren’t allowed to get licenses in the first place.
In a policy reversal, the LAPD has decided to no longer immediately seize vehicles of unlicensed drivers, including undocumented immigrants, when they are stopped at sobriety checkpoints, but the Police Protective League is not on board. Calling it “the right thing to do” Chief Beck announced that officers will give what he calls “reasonable time” to unlicensed illegal immigrants to find someone else to drive their car home. The police union argues that his new policy violates current vehicle code, threatens the safety of drivers and could even expose LA city to legal liabilities. So what is the right thing to do? Who gets the final word and what happens next?
