Affirmative Action Cop Sentenced to 102 Years

L.A. Cops Not Allowed to Report Illegal Alien Criminals

by James Edwards

Over the past several years, the electronic and print media have featured quite a few reports and articles on the problem of corruption in the Los Angeles police department. But what most of them don’t like to mention is the fact that the corrupt cops are overwhelmingly non-white. On the rare occasions when they do mention it, they certainly don’t dwell on it, let alone explore just how so many bad apples have gotten hired to enforce the law. That’s a road they don’t want to go down, because it leads right to affirmative action.

The latest headlines involve a group of cops who were committing home invasion style armed robberies. The ringleader, Ruben Palomares, was sentenced to 13 years in prison last week. Yesterday another non-white former cop, William Ferguson, was sentenced to 102 years for his role in the robberies. His brother, a Long Beach policeman, was also in the gang.

We’ll be seeing more and more of this type of thing in the future, as police hiring standards keep getting lower and lower to allow them to hire enough non-whites to “reflect” the city’s demographics. And I’m not just talking about test scores. That’s bad enough, but it doesn’t even begin to tell the story of how affirmative action has destroyed the hiring standards in law enforcement. Until the push for more non-whites on police forces began a few decades ago, in most cities, applicants for the police academy had to pass rigorous background checks and if they weren’t squeaky clean, they didn’t get in. Not anymore. Check out the background of William Ferguson:

Ferguson had five felony arrests for burglary and theft related offenses before being hired by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1996.

At one point, while trying to cite mitigating factors that might persuade Feess to impose a lesser sentence, Deitch told the judge that the incidents were not sufficiently serious to prevent him from being hired by the Police Department.

The judge shot back:

“To which I can only say, ‘Why?’ ”

Feess added that he found it “stunning to me” that a prospective officer could be hired with even one criminal conviction.

Why, indeed.

And the answer is affirmative action.
