Program # 317 From the Full Disclosure Archives (Part 1)
Guest: Stephen Yagman, Civil Rights Attorney
Videotaped: September 28, 2001

Los Angeles, CA— In this second part of a two-part interview on the Full Disclosure Network, Civil Rights Attorney Stephen Yagman told host Leslie Dutton “elected officials should have taken control of the LAPD and seen to it that it functioned properly, without brutality and without corruption.” He said that when they didn’t perform like that the elected officials became legally potentially liable.

When asked if it was possible to have responsible government in Los Angeles when the City Council is dominated by Democrats and a one party system he said “I don’t know which party, if any, controlled Los Angeles City politics over the past 25 years. I thought it was a mélange of just kind of hacks”. He noted “solving the (LAPD) problem is in the hands of the people whom we elect in our representative form of democracy, the Mayor and the City Council members. They have never done it and they’re not doing it now.”
