Does she want Memphis? Because that’s how you get Memphis.
Mayor Karen Bass, the democratically selected choice of ballot harvesters whose ballots all came in conveniently late after numbers showed she had lost the race for a second time, has plans to fight crime.
Well, not crime, but police.
Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass called to remove “obstacles” for new police recruits and pledged to root out officers with ties to “right-wing domestic extremist organizations.”
Bass is looking to remove “obstacles” for police recruits who fail to initially qualify for training as a means of further diversifying the LAPD,
LA, according to Bass, needs fewer experienced cops and more failed applicants who get in because they meet a quota. That’s bad enough in most lines of work, especially medicine where this is rapidly becoming a reality, but very much so in police work where hollowing out a departmental culture, dumping experienced officers and replacing them with incompetent diversity hires can get people on either side of the thin blue line killed.
I mentioned Memphis because this is the familiar setup
One provision says a deputy mayor will work in conjunction with a “third party” to “evaluate the personnel process and identify obstacles to entry for recruits who fail to qualify for training.”
But if any of those diversity hires kill someone, it’ll still be the fault of policing and systemic racism.
“We think that particular provision or that goal or that idea is dangerous,” Tom Saggau, Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL) spokesperson, told Fox News Digital.
“If you have police officers that can’t make minimum qualifications or attained minimum standards, for instance, there are recruits that have been in the academy that just can’t score the minimum requirements for a physical fitness test,” he added. “One hundred is the maximum score, 50 is acceptable. There are folks that are scoring under 10. That’s just dangerous.”
Another provision in the goals summary seeks to “identify, discipline, and/or terminate officers associated with right-wing domestic extremist organizations” using data from the Justice Department. LAPD must report back with progress on this provision in August.
“We [LAPPL] think it ought to be right-wing, left-wing, foreign and domestic,” Saggau said. “We think that there are more organizations that members of law enforcement should not be associated with, other than the narrow group that was listed in that document.”
Bass and her cohort naturally want leftist groups in the department, just not any that might oppose her. This is a coup. And it’s a familiar one that the Left implements every chance it gets.
