After reading "L.A. Settles 7 Rampart Cases for $2.8 Million" (Feb. 20), it's evident that police framing scandals are still a big-time problem in this nation. Just this one Rampart Division has cost taxpayers $35 million. I'd love to see an article on the burden put on taxpayers for this type of police abuse on a nationwide basis. It must be staggering.
