The City Council voted this week to settle a lawsuit filed by Janine Bouey, who charged that she was shunned and demoted to a menial job after complaining of mistreatment by white male officers at the north San Fernando Valley station.

Just as the Rodney G. King videotape gave the American public an unfiltered glimpse of police brutality, so did the Christopher Commission report open a window Tuesday on the working lives of Los Angeles police, exposing strains of racism, violence and callousness toward the public they are sworn to protect.

There were complaints of loud music at a Crenshaw apartment. Officer Garland Hardeman, an eight-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department and a black man, went to the apartment and told the tenants to turn it down. They did--but the volume went back up as soon as he was out of sight. Hardeman returned, and the insults began. "What are you going to do, beat me like Rodney King?" the woman yelled. "You black cops are just Uncle Toms. You're no better than the white boys!"

The West Los Angeles division of the Los Angeles Police Department was long considered the worst police station in the city for women to work at, and it was the place where, in 1993, the LAPD decided to make its stand against sexual harassment and discrimination. Three years, more than 100 interviews and an unparalleled inquiry later, the department has ignored many of its own recommendations on how to improve life for women in the LAPD.

STACEY CORNELL KOON Sgt. Stacey Cornell Koon, 41, a 14-year veteran before his suspension without pay last year, charged with assault with a deadly weapon, excessive force by an officer under color of authority, filing a false police report and being an accessory to assault. The scene is etched into the memories of officers at the LAPD's 77th Street Division. A black transvestite prostitute with open sores around his lips was seized by a heart attack and fell to the floor of the police station lockup.
