The Los Angeles City Council refused Wednesday to step between Police Chief Bernard Parks and civil service officials who overturned his firing of two employees for theft. "We have two employees who were found guilty of theft," said a disappointed Parks. "I don't think they should remain city employees, and at a minimum they should not remain in the Police Department."
