Parks said Thursday that his department's ongoing investigation into last week's police shooting of a homeless, mentally ill woman has produced no evidence that the officers involved acted improperly.

The FBI launched an investigation Monday into last week's fatal shooting of a mentally ill homeless woman by a Los Angeles police officer. Assistant U.S. Atty. Michael J. Gennaco said he asked for the federal probe to determine whether the LAPD officer used excessive force or violated the civil rights of a 54-year-old woman, who was a college-educated bank employee until mental illness forced her onto the streets, according to her only child.

As political appointees go, San Fernando Valley car dealer Bert Boeckmann is a survivor. Despite his conservative politics and close ties to anti-establishment groups seeking to break up Los Angeles and the city school district, Boeckmann showed again last week that he remains a player in the liberal-leaning Los Angeles City Hall. New Democratic Mayor James Hahn picked him as the only member of the Police Commission to remain on the panel.

Officer Jeff Nolte was leading a drug raid on a motel in Gardena when a suspected cocaine dealer pointed a shotgun at him. Nolte fired two shots "in immediate defense of his life," hitting the suspect, Leonard Robinson, in the hands and disarming him. At least that was the story told by the Los Angeles Police Department. Seeing no reason to doubt it, the Police Commission ruled the shooting "in policy." Nolte was officially in the clear.
