Blacks who filed excessive-force complaints against Los Angeles police officers were more likely--by a narrow margin--to have their complaints upheld by the department than Anglos or Latinos. But when blacks complained about other forms of police misconduct--ranging from improper tactics to verbal abuse--their complaints were more likely to be turned down.

Los Angeles County would be forced to close two of its six major hospitals and exact across-the-board cuts affecting the sheriff, district attorney, welfare and most other departments if Gov. Pete Wilson's new budget proposal is implemented, county officials warned Tuesday. The county could lose as much as $350 million in revenue under the Wilson plan, with about half of all the losses affecting the giant public health system.

Two Los Angeles police officers accused of shooting wildly at a highway patrolman have told friends they were firing at signs and did not see the officer, department sources said Friday. Embarrassed by the Wednesday afternoon incident, the officers' colleagues at the department's 77th Street Station mailed a letter Friday to the California Highway Patrol, expressing their support.

To hear Los Angeles Police Sgt. James Gordon tell it, a cop can get awfully lonely working a beat from behind the wheel of a squad car. "I worked patrol a long time and I never had people talk to me," said Gordon, a policeman for eight years. "You are in a bubble in that car." This month, Gordon and several of his fellow officers at the Los Angeles Police Department's Harbor Division in San Pedro left their cars behind and began patroling on bicycles.

The 25 best L.A. films of the last 25 years "Los ANGELES isn't a real city," people have said, "it just plays one on camera." It was a clever line once upon a time, but all that has changed. Los Angeles is the most complicated community in America -- make no mistake, it is a community -- and over the last 25 years, it has been both celebrated and savaged on the big screen with amazing efficacy. Damaged souls and flawless weather, canyon love and beach city menace, homeboys and credit card girls, freeways and fedoras, power lines and palm trees . . . again and again, moviegoers all over the world have sat in the dark and stared up at our Los Angeles, even if it was one populated by corrupt cops or a jabbering cartoon rabbit.

Former Assembly Speaker Antonio Villaraigosa's mayoral campaign on Thursday picked up the support of an array of public safety officials who said he has worked to toughen gun legislation and bring more resources to Los Angeles for law enforcement. Los Angeles Police Commissioner Raquelle de la Rocha, who has previously donated to the mayoral campaigns of City Atty. James K. Hahn and businessman Steve Soboroff, said she believes Villaraigosa is best suited to bring about meaningful police reform.

Once again The Times has blundered in endorsing Norris for district attorney for all the wrong reasons. It goes without saying that Norris is a hard and effective prosecutor as evidenced by his peers in granting him the "prosecutor of the year" award. However, Norris has yet to demonstrate his administrative and leadership skills that are ever so important and lacking in the current district attorney's office. In the recent past Norris has twice been offered and turned down an administrative assignment, where he could have either honed or developed his managerial and leadership skills.

The public will have an opportunity to comment on leash-law enforcement at Los Angeles parks at a hearing Wednesday evening before the city Animal Regulation Commission. The hearing was called in response to complaints by dog owners who frequent Laurel Canyon Park, in the mountains above Studio City, that animal control officers have been overzealous in enforcement of the leash law.

A North Hollywood man was sentenced this week to 60 days in jail for filing a false police report in which he claimed he and a friend were beaten by three law enforcement officers, Los Angeles City Atty. James Hahn said. Sidney Emilio Caron, 34, was sentenced Thursday after he pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor count in Van Nuys Municipal Court. Adolfo Pino Aquino, 29, who allegedly helped file the report, failed to appear for his arraignment and there is a warrant for his arrest, Hahn said.
