Summoned to ABC News President David Westin's office, John Miller did what anyone would when called by the boss: He wracked his brain to figure out what he'd done wrong. "Sit down," Westin commanded. "Am I being fired?" Miller blurted out. Quite the contrary. ABC's busy crime and terrorism reporter was being offered a plum job, co-anchor of "20/20," the network's newsmagazine program, working with Barbara Walters.

Jurors are scheduled to begin deliberating Friday in the excessive force and civil rights case of Brian Mulligan, a former co-chairman of Universal Pictures, against the Los Angeles Police Department. The onetime Deutsche Bank vice chairman suffered multiple nose fractures, a broken shoulder blade and a bloody scalp after two officers took him into custody in Highland Park in May 2012, he says. Mulligan's attorney, Louis “Skip” Miller, said Thursday in closing arguments that his client's testimony and medical evidence show he was struck in the face with a baton by officer James Nichols.

With Los Angeles caught up in an extraordinary security alert, the city is relying on a former journalist who favors $1,500 Italian suits and may be the only police official in America who has ever sat down with Osama bin Laden. John Miller, 45, took a $1-million pay cut and arrived here in January, charged by his old friend Police Chief William J. Bratton with heading up counterterrorism efforts for the department.

Federal jurors deliberating an excessive-force and civil rights case of a former Hollywood executive against the LAPD on Friday asked to inspect the baton of an officer he says severely beat him. The request from the eight-person jury came before the lunch break on the first day of deliberations. Brian Mulligan, a former co-chairman of Universal Pictures and onetime  Deutsche Bank  vice chairman, suffered multiple nose fractures, a broken shoulder blade and a bloody scalp after two Los Angeles police officers took him into custody in Highland Park in May 2012, he says.

Re "Weapons Incident Probed," Oct. 2: The real question involving LAPD anti-terrorism chief John Miller's gun incident at LAX is not if he is going to be charged with a misdemeanor, and it is not if the "I forgot" defense is going to join the "Twinkie defense" in the annals of jurisprudence. Nor is it if he is going to allow LAPD officers to avoid punishment by using the same lame excuse he did. No, the question is, what qualified a TV news anchor to be handpicked by LAPD Chief Bill Bratton for what is arguably the department's most important job?

Thank you for printing our recommendation of the Gschwend Zimmer inn in Interlaken, Switzerland, in the Reader Recommendations section (Jan. 7). However, the price of $24 was not per person but for two people. The price, along with the wonderful hospitality, makes this one of Switzerland's most attractive bargains. The address is: 35 Oelestrasse, Interlaken, Switzerland. SUZANNE and JOHN MILLER Walnut

Los Angeles Police Chief William J. Bratton appointed the co-anchor of the ABC News magazine "20/20" on Friday to oversee a new LAPD bureau of homeland security. John Miller, best known for a 1998 interview of Osama bin Laden, will oversee the new bureau, which will include the anti - terrorism unit and the department's intelligence functions. Miller was a deputy police commissioner for public affairs in New York when Bratton was police commissioner there in the 1990s.

John Miller must build his dream castle on a tight budget. "In order to afford to do this kind of thing, I've led a rather frugal life," he said. Take the castle's keep, its defensive center--a 22-foot-diameter cylinder that rises four stories, built of 55-pound concrete blocks. "I got 4,700 of these for $250," Miller said. He found them at a building company that was going out of business. Having to watch the cost bothers Miller. "Designing a castle is simple.

A pickup truck carrying 74 1/2 pounds of cocaine with a street value of nearly $30 million was seized by U.S. Customs inspectors at the San Ysidro port of entry, customs officials said Monday. The seizure was the largest recorded at the California-Mexico border, said John Miller, a spokesman for the Customs Service's Southern California sector. Miller said a 22-year-old Colombian woman was arrested Saturday afternoon when the drugs were seized.

A federal jury found Friday that two Los Angeles police officers had not used excessive force when arresting a onetime bank and Hollywood executive whom they believed to be under the influence of drugs known as bath salts. Brian Mulligan, 54, a former Deutsche Bank vice chairman, sued the Los Angeles Police Department and two of its officers, claiming that James Nichols and John Miller had used batons to break his nose and shoulder during the May 16, 2012, encounter. After hearing three days of testimony, jurors took less than three hours to reach a verdict, finding that the officers had not violated Mulligan's federal or state civil rights or battered him. Much of the trial focused on Mulligan's mental state that night.

Was a Los Angeles police officer “a rogue cop” with a partner willing to cover up for him in the beating of an ex-Hollywood power broker? Or was the former executive and banker - who is suing the LAPD for excessive force by officers in 2012 - actually in a “drug induced psychosis” from consuming bath salts? The two narratives were outlined during closing arguments Thursday by lawyers for former Deutsche Bank executive Brian Mulligan and attorneys for LAPD Officers James Nichols and John Miller.

The New York Police Department is investigating whether some of its police officers were present when a pack of motorcyclists confronted an SUV driver last week in a case of road rage gone viral, a department spokesman told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. The spokesman would not confirm media reports that as many as three off-duty officers were present during the Sept. 29 attack, in which one motorcyclist was apparently run over and bikers pulled the driver out of his SUV and assaulted him until a bystander came to the driver's aid. "What I can tell you is it's under investigation by internal affairs," said the spokesman, Sgt. Lee Jones, who declined to give any further details.

Gabe Garcia and John Miller stood the other day at the rim of Cucamonga Canyon, dwarfed by the spires of peaks with names that evoke old, wild California - Timber, Telegraph, Bighorn. They were supposed to be alone. They were not. "Red shorts! White shirt!" Garcia, a San Bernardino National Forest district ranger, barked the description to Miller, his Forest Service colleague, who yanked a pair of binoculars to his eyes. The hikers were there, sure enough, but far away, deep in the folds of the canyon.

We will know soon enough who unleashed Monday's grotesque violence on Boston. But it is fair to say that many Muslims who heard that explosions had marred the end of the Boston Marathon had a simple, poignant thought: Please don't let it be a Muslim. “Was this thought crossing your mind today?” asked the Facebook page of the Muslim Public Affairs Council in Los Angeles, which featured this Washington Post blog post on the subject .  “Seems like it was for many Muslims.” For Muslims who lived through the hysteria that followed the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995, and the ugliness of the backlash against Muslims after the 9/11 attacks, such a response is understandable.

I am not shocked by revelations of conflict of interest in our nation's defense establishment ("Consulting and Policy Overlap," May 7). Pentagon advisor Richard Perle and his fellow Republicans have never seemed ashamed enough of their belief in politics as the pursuit of profit by other means to bother to try to hide it. I can't contain my disgust, though, on reading about Perle's aggressive efforts to make money off the slaughter of other human beings...
