YAGMAN BLAMES POLITICIANS FOR POLICE ABUSE

Program #318

Videotaped September 28, 2001

From Full Disclosure Archives (Part 1)

Los Angeles, CA— In this second part of a two-part interview on the Full Disclosure Network, Civil Rights Attorney Stephen Yagman told host Leslie Dutton “elected officials should have taken control of the LAPD and seen to it that it functioned properly, without brutality and without corruption.” He said that when they didn’t perform like that the elected officials became legally potentially liable.

In this interview that was originally videotaped on September 28, 2001, Yagman, admitted to filing 1600 police misconduct lawsuits against the LAPD. He also said that the Federal consent decree that was entered into between the City and U. S. Justice Department is a basically a sham. Because the Justice Department won’t enforce it and hasn’t been enforcing it.”

When asked if it was possible to have responsible government in Los Angeles when the City Council is dominated by Democrats and a one party system he said “I don’t know which party, if any, controlled Los Angeles City politics over the past 25 years. I thought it was a mélange of just kind of hacks”. He noted “solving the (LAPD) problem is in the hands of the people whom we elect in our representative form of democracy, the Mayor and the City Council members. They have never done it and they’re not doing it now.”

Full Disclosure interviews over the past twelve years have documented the problems encountered in the criminal justice system from the broad perspectives of law enforcement, judiciary, public defenders and criminal defense attorneys.

Los Angeles, CA — The history of immigration enforcement policies and the struggle between the LAPD, County Sheriffs and Federal government over the past twelve years is set forth in a series of two programs featuring top law enforcement officials. Also, offering comments on developments since the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and local law enforcement policies, is former Assistant Chief David Gascon, who reviews the current predicament facing many U. S. cities.

Following a video presentation of clips from previous Full Disclosure interviews with former LAPD Chiefs, Police Commission Presidents, L. A. County Sheriffs Block and Baca and INS District Director Richard K Rogers, Gascon offered his comments on the need to review the LAPD Special order 40 which has prohibited police officers from identifying illegal aliens in Los Angeles for the past 25 years.

In this Part 1 of a 2 part program with Emmy Awarding winning host Leslie Dutton, Gascon said that local law enforcement is frustrated because deported criminal aliens are returning time and again due to the U.S. Mexican Border being so porous.

Full Disclosure interviews over the past twelve years have documented the frustration and confusion of local law enforcement and District INS officials who often complained of lack of cooperation and lack of funding as the reasons why U.S. immigration laws were not effective.

Los Angeles, CA — In the City which at one time declared itself a “sanctuary” for illegal aliens, former LAPD Chief Daryl Gates describes how illegal aliens shot and killed police officers while the Department waited for Federal authorities to enforce immigration law at the border and on the streets of Los Angeles.

In this part 2 of a special series of the Emmy award winning Full Disclosure cable and internet TV program video clips from previous interviews feature other high ranking government officials. Both Daryl Gates and L. A . County Supervisor Mike Antonovich recounted the tragic circumstances where police officers died at the hands of criminals who were also illegal aliens.

When LAPD Deputy Chief Art Lopez was asked why the LAPD does not enforce immigration laws he told Full Disclosure host Leslie Dutton “the City Fathers, the City Council and the Police Commission has spoken that we want to provide services to everybody, regardless of their undocumented status. Unless they break the law, then we’re not going to report things to the INS.”

LAPD's David Gascon, retired Assistant Chief , commented on the 25 year old "don't ask, don't tell" LAPD policy known as Special Order 40 which prohibits local police from enforcing U. S . Immigration Laws.

Full Disclosure interviews over the past twelve years have documented the frustration and confusion of local law enforcement and District INS officials who often complained of lack of cooperation and lack of funding as the reasons why U.S. immigration laws were not effective.

YAGMAN ON CALIF. SUPREME COURT & U.S. JUDGES

Los Angeles, CA — According to Civil Rights Attorney Stephen Yagman the California Supreme Court is basically a “cesspool” consisting of “six hacks and one wonderful justice”. In this preview of a two-part Full Disclosure television interview with Emmy award winning host Leslie Dutton, Yagman takes on the entire justice system saying that there are "unfair" Federal Judges who hear Civil Rights cases who are generally unfair to anyone who appears before them and he describes practicing attorneys as "mostly wimp asses” who are in business to make money. This program, from the Full Disclosure Archives, was videotaped on September 28, 2001

When asked how many lawsuits he had filed against the Los Angeles Police Department, Yagman said perhaps 1,500 to 1,600 of which 25 percent get thrown out before trial another 10 or 15 percent settle and 65 percent of them go to trial. When describing fellow Civil Rights Attorney Johnny Cochran, Yagman's choice of words had to be bleeped out for cable television consumption. However, the unedited version can be viewed via streaming media on the Full Disclosure website.

Full Disclosure interviews over the past twelve years have documented the problems encountered in the criminal justice system from the broad perspectives of law enforcement, judiciary, public defenders and criminal defense attorneys.

The Full Disclosure Network is billed as "the news behind the news" and featured on 43 cable systems and the Internet. In 2002 the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences presented Host Leslie Dutton with a local public affairs Emmy Award for the information series "L.A.'s War Against Terrorism" featuring LAPD offcials, L.A. County Sheriff Leroy Baca and L. A. Councilman Mark Ridely-Thomas.
