POLICE BRUTALITY LAWYER SOUTHERN CALIFONIA California Police Departments are very cruel and brutal entities. There is almost no limit what they will do to protect themselves from the victims of their outrages. They beat, falsely arrest and procure the malicious criminal prosecutions of their victims. As the LAPD states: “We’re the badest gang in town”. POLICE BRUTALITY, FALSE ARRESTS AND MALICIOUS CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS IN LOS ANGELES. Wrongful police beatings, accompanied by their sister “false arrests”, are a common and every day occurrence in Los Angeles. These beating, shooting and false arrests, are no longer limited to persons of color. Soccer Moms, airline pilots and school teachers, beware: because of the great (and ever expanding) powers being given to police officers by the Supreme Court, described below.

You don’t actually have a “right” if you have no practical way of enforcing it. So, if you think that in the real world that you have the right to verbally protest or challenge police actions, think again. FAILING THE ATTITUDE TEST IN LOS ANGELES. If you do verbally protest or challenge police actions in Los Angeles, you probably will end-up getting arrested on some bogus resistance offense, and, often, a good old fashion police beating. Invariably, when the police beat you, they almost always attempt to procure the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office (or various City Attorney Offices), they author false and misleading police reports and procure your malicious criminal prosecution. That is the real world. So much for your rights. You will likely then be criminally prosecuted for “Contempt Of Cop” “resistance offenses” such as violation of Cal. Penal Code § 148(a)(1) (resisting and/or delaying and/or obstructing a peace officer in the lawful performance of his/her duties); Cal. Penal Code § 240/241 (assault on a peace officer), Cal. Penal Code § 242 / 243(b) (battery on a peace officer) and Cal. Penal Code § 69 interfering with a public officer’s discharge of his/her duties of his/her office via actual or threatened use of force or violence (Cal. Penal Code § 69.) SECTION 69 IS THE NEW RESISTANCE OFFENSE “DU JOUR” IN L.A.. Section 69 is a “wobbler”; a California public offense that may be filed by the District Attorney’s Office as either a felony or a misdemeanor. Section 69 has now become the bogus arrest offense of choice by today’s police, as they police can charge you with a felony, and make you post bail to get out of jail. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the largest Sheriff’s Department in the United States, does not record their contacts with the public. They know that if there is only one side of the story, their side, that the public will believe the police unless their poor victim can prove otherwise. THE POLICE IN CALIFORNIA RELY ON THE IGNORANCE OF THE PUBLIC TO CONVICT THE INNOCENT. To this day, virtually anyone who would sit on a jury in California, is a person who has no idea the reality of who the police really are and that they really did do bad things to people who don’t deserve it. That is because people who have seen real police misconduct are routinely either excused for cause or are otherwise excused from sitting on such juries. THE POLICE OFFICER IN L.A. WILL NEVER “RAT-OUT” A FELLOW OFFICER. There is a “Blue Code of Silence “between and among peace officers throughout the nation, and everyone knows this. This is no startling revelation. The County of Los Angeles has itself released a report Commissioned by the Board of Supervisors, acknowledging the existence of, and actually condemning, the Sheriff’s Department’s own rogue gangs of sadistic jailers at the Los Angeles County Central Men’s Jail.
