Olmsted on Set

Commander Robert Olmsted (Ret.) is embarrassed by his former Department. In fact he was so troubled by the shame of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department that he quit the LASD in 2010, and is now running as a candidate for Sheriff. Olmsted notes that the $100 million in lawsuit settlement “pay-outs” in the last three years against the Department doesn’t even cover attorney fees. He explains the pay-outs are for use of force, inappropriate force, retaliation, sexual harassment, and a variety of reasons. Olmsted believes the mass hiring orchestrated by Under Sheriff Paul Tanaka in 2004 was made possible by lowering the hiring qualifications. And that is what led to the major discipline problems that are besieging the Sheriff’s Department.

    I said this all along. The ppl running govt have turned Los Angeles into a racist Police State, police brutality running rampant and cops murdering the homeless and the poor with impunity. The police and sheriff’s departments are an embarrassment to the whole human race. They’re out of control, breaking every law in the books and costing taxpayers MILLIONS. These corrupt ppl should be JAILED. America is no longer a civilized country.

    Haven’t the standards been lowered for years now?
    I could not get over the police woman that was arrested
    years later for murdering the wife of a former boyfriend. Her bite marks finally caught up to her! The father of the murdered girl tried over and over to have the police look into his daughter’s murder as the father suspected this woman and he was ignored. Finally one investigator checked out the story on his own. Corruption seems to be happening over and over now.
    What happened to the Newport beach scandal story about Police Chief’s and police officers being treated to hotel rooms, parties and drinks initiated by a Hotel firm? The Hotel firm was having their masseurs licenses speed-ed up!
    I saw it in the news only once then never again?

    This is the best interview Full Disclosure ever did. Thugs and murderers have been put in power in our Los Angeles police department and law abiding tax payers are paying for their crimes.

    Years ago law enforcement was a prestigious and honorable career, where only the best of the best were allowed to be a part of. And when I say career I mean career. I admit, once in a while a bad apple snuck through the process. Today, with the bad economy and lack of available jobs, people are applying for a law enforcement job never intending to make it a career. The sheriff’s department lowered it’s hiring standards right after Baca was elected. I remember listening to him tell personnel in one of his meet the sheriff tours right after the election, that he was going to allow applicants who had “recreationally” used methamphetamine be accepted.

    I completely believe the problems we have in the sheriff’s department are directly related to the lowered hiring standards approved by Baca, and the lack of moral and ethical standards of a lot of the people hired during his tenure as sheriff.

    It’s time for a change!
