Officer Jana Blair, a Long Beach Police spokeswoman, said no misconduct was involved when William Farley Stovall III, 22, withdrew from the academy only a week after entering it April 3.

Your article of July 4 about the Long Beach Citizens Police Complaint Commission was generally fair and accurately illustrated some of the difficulties of operating effective civilian review on a minuscule budget. But your statement that the commission "almost always sides with the police officer" is misleading. The fact that the commission places a comparatively low proportion of complaints in the "sustained" category does not mean that the commission almost always sides with the police.
