I do not condone the actions of the LAPD but concluded a long time ago given my line of work that anything that "keeps us safe" is going to be cut enormous slack by the general public, with an example that applies to anyone entering an airport being the indignities to which TSA randomly subjects people. It is not as if someone "important" like Nicole Simpson or the Blade Runner's hot blonde girlfriend got whacked by the LAPD, so the media will move on.
We agree. Like I said: no one gives a shit.
