Los Angeles, CA – According to retired LAPD Captain Kenneth Hillman who also served as a Director of the police union, a small group of partisans were the masterminds who reformed the Los Angeles Police Department. “They own it” said Hillman in describing the partisan politicalization of the LAPD which also resulted in the Los Angeles Police Protective League’s own empowerment. Hillman told Leslie Dutton, host of the Emmy Award winning Full Disclosure® cable and Internet television program, that the ACLU and the Democrats have complete control of the Police Department.
On this part-two of the Full Disclosure® program, Captain Hillman said that the Police union made a deal with then-candidate for Mayor James Hahn, to support his campaign in exchange for his approving the 3/12 work schedule for the police officers. This was accomplished due to the union’s new-found political power, which was brought about by the partisan reforms enacted by the 1992 Proposition “F” and other City Charter changes in the wake of the Rodney King incident.
