A good first step

Re "Sergeant Claims Cover-Up by LAPD," Oct. 6

LAPD Sgt. Jim Gavin is exactly what we civilians would like all police officers to be, i.e., an officer who is not afraid to act on his belief that his duty to protect and to serve the public overrides the department's notorious "code of silence" mentality. Surely there are many other LAPD officers with similar beliefs but, sadly, without the courage or resolve to act upon them. Let's all hope that Gavin's actions turn out to be the first step toward what might become a real and lasting cleanup of the department.
