The Los Angeles Police Department is about to cut police services to the Westside. This is foolish in the extreme when crime is rising because of the economic recession. Jack Weiss, the man who wants to be City Attorney, is in favor of this ridiculous plan.
Please read my letter to the Editor of the LA Times.
Weiss has an appalling record on crime, and his chairmanship of the Public Safety Commission is a disgrace - he thinks red light traffic cameras are the priority, while he ignores the uncomfortable realities of fighting crime. It's a pity Weiss isn't more concerned about protecting decent honest people, instead of pandering to special interests and campaign endorsers in his bid to be be the City's next chief law enforcement executive.
Weiss is wrong on crime, and wrong for Los Angeles.
