May Day vs. payday

November 05, 2009

Re "Officers won't be charged in melee," Oct. 31, and "DWP workers get pay raises, but not police," Oct. 31

So prosecutors will not file criminal charges against the LAPD officers involved in the 2007 May Day melee at MacArthur Park because of "insufficient evidence."

After seeing the videos of that "incident" many times, apparently former Chief William Bratton and the L.A. County district attorney's office are from the "who are you going to believe -- me or your lying eyes?" school of investigation.

I also see that DWP employees are getting a pay raise and LAPD officers are not. Now, considering this May Day police fiasco, who can argue with that?
