LAPD Chief's Apology Fails To Soothe Critics
LAPD Chief's Apology Fails To Soothe Critics LAPD Chief William J. Bratton's apology July 3 for making remarks criticized as offensive to blacks did little to quell outrage directed at his department at a town hall meeting held Saturday. The discussion began with a video clip of a June 30 City Council meeting in which Councilman Bernard C. Parks asked Bratton to respond to claims that the chief had used words such as "tribal," "thugs" and "terrorists" to describe minorities.
