"LAPD patrolmen failed to report dropping off a gang member near rivals' turf shortly before he was killed, D.A. report states. Prosecution ruled out."

"Two Los Angeles police officers sought to cover up their contact with a 16-year-old gang member who was shot to death on the border of a rival gang's territory just minutes after the officers released him from their patrol car, according to a district attorney's review of the case."

"Neither officer, one of whom was accused of dropping off the same youth in rival gang territory as punishment a month earlier, documented the encounter with the victim on the day he was killed."

" 'It appears, based on this investigation, that [the officers] intentionally withheld information from the homicide detectives, internal affairs investigators and their chain of command,' wrote Deputy Dist. Atty. Laura L. Laesecke, who investigated the officers as part of the Rampart scandal. 'Not only does their lie obstruct justice, but it also calls into question the veracity of the rest of their ... statements' about the case.' "

"Ultimately, Laesecke concluded that the officers could not be prosecuted for obstructing justice because the best evidence against them came from so-called compelled statements in which they were ordered to cooperate with authorities or face termination from the Los Angeles Police Department. Such statements cannot be used in court against those who made them." ...

OTTAWA - "Allan Rock's Liberal leadership prospects have been badly wounded by the $1-billion gun registry fiasco, says the country's leading pollsters."

"Mr. Rock, the Industry Minister, was the man who led the charge for a universal gun registry program shortly after he was elected in 1993, vowing it would make Canada a safer place."

"As Justice Minister in 1995, he introduced the program and estimated it would cost $2-million. Although there have been two other Justice ministers since then, Anne McLellan and Martin Cauchon, Mr. Rock is bearing the brunt of the blame for Auditor-General Sheila Fraser's scathing report last week revealing Canadians have been kept in the dark for years about the sky-rocketing costs of the now more than $1-billion program." ...

Covers what happened, but nothing about why the driver wouldn't stop...

It appears at first glance to be a justified shooting, but no explanation or conjecture as to why the driver wouldn't remain stopped once rammed, or why the officer didn't just let go and step back since there'd been no recklessness or speed involved. O.J. Simpson's set precedent was ignored completely. To me this has an odorous quality.

"Belleville inspectors and armed police officers show up without search warrants to check for occupancy code violations, and ticket people who don't let them in -- a practice experts say is unconstitutional."

"Invite friends over, babysit your grandchildren or allow relatives to spend the night and you risk an armed police officer turning up at your door to search your home and give you a ticket. Enforcement teams consisting of a housing inspector and a police officer do not obtain search warrants before showing up to check for occupancy code violations. Most residents give their permission to come in, although reluctantly, and those who don't usually are charged."

"Sometimes they simply walk in."

"Jim Reese said he was standing in his kitchen when he heard a noise at 7 a.m. and found a housing inspector and police officer standing in his living room."

" 'I wanted to know who walked in without permission,' he said. 'They didn't answer me. They just started walking through the place.' " ...
