LA Police Chief Bill Bratton May Get Third Term
Los Angeles is weighing an exemption from term limits for Police Chief Bill Bratton.
Removing the terms limits would require voter approval and revise one aspect of the police reforms that stemmed from the 1991 beating of Rodney G. King, which sparked riots when four LAPD officers were initially acquitted of brutality. Those reforms limited the police chief to two five-year terms.
I was at Chief Bratton's first swearing-in ceremony in 2002.(One of the cops providing security was 1960's singer Bobby Sherman -- here's a picture of my pal Mickey Sherman (no relation) and me with him.)
All of my coverage of Chief Bratton's tenure as LA Police Chief is here. I hope he gets another term.
