    Los Angeles police officers removed antennas from police cars in
    several predominantly Black neighborhoods to disable the
    recording equipment and avoid being monitored while on duty,
    according to an inspection by LAPD investigators.

    The department review found about half of the 80 cars in the
    Southeast division—which includes Watts and the Jordan Downs
    and Nickerson Gardens housing projects—were missing the
    antennas that help capture what officers say in the field. The
    review discovered at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions also
    had antennas removed.

    Members of the Police Commission, which oversees the
    department, said they were alarmed by both the actions of the
    officers and the failure of the department to reveal their actions
    when they were first detected.

    “On an issue like this, we need to be brought in right away,”
    commission President Steve Soboroff told the Los Angeles Times.
    “This equipment is for the protection of the public and of the
    officers. To have people who don’t like the rules to take it upon
    themselves to do something like this is very troubling.”

    The cops want the right to be as racially bias and abusive as their powers allow without people looking over their shoulders to call them racist and bias...

    oh the good ole days without them being taped and youtubed or world starred on their abuses... when a simple cop beating on a highway was looked past as standard operating procedure...[sigh]
