At former LAPD Chief Daryl F. Gates' funeral Tuesday at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, his longtime attorney, Jay Grodin, told mourners that Gates did not avoid the tough path. Immediately after the video of Rodney King's beating became public, Gates was advised that it would be better for him if he came out tough on the officers. Grodin recalled Gates response to those advisers was "to go pound sand." "These officers are entitled to a fair and impartial investigation," Grodin recalled Gates saying.

Over a turbulent 10-day period, some of the most prominent political, business and labor leaders in Los Angeles wrestled with a difficult mission: how to persuade Police Chief Daryl F. Gates to commit to a retirement date.

Re "Sheriff Block Dies; His Campaign Still On, Backers Say," Oct. 30: I wish I could convey in these written words the high-pitched, incredulous sound in my voice when I ask: "Has this town gone nuts?!" Am I the only one who sees how ludicrous this continuing campaign is? It was bad enough that a man so ill that there was no way he could carry out his duties was still campaigning to be sheriff.

Last Friday afternoon, City Council President John Ferraro quietly and firmly told Police Chief Daryl F. Gates the game had ended. Ferraro didn't deliver the message directly to Gates, who had sent City Hall into turmoil by threatening to stay in office until mid-July, or perhaps forever. He passed it on to Gates' lawyer, Jay Grodin, who informed his client. On Monday, Gates backed off. Just bluffing, he said. It was a revealing episode, showing how politics works behind the scenes.

Gates delivered an emotional, six-minute message announcing his retirement, Greene stood behind the camera in a sound studio on the eighth floor of Parker Center. As he tended to technical necessities, there was little time for Greene to think about the chief's words.
