"Jack Dunphy" is a psuedonym used by a Los Angeles Police Dept officer on NRO. Here he writes a biting indictment of the ineptness of the LAPD and FBI after the July 4th shooting at LAX airport. Unfortunately, he doesn't go into as much depth on the LAPD's actions as I would like. The utter incompetence of the LAPD management has been a long theme of "Dunphy" on NRO. When I was living in California, I had the good luck to live in the jurisdiction of one of the better police departments, Ventura County Sheriff's Dept., but had to on occasion interact with LAPD to my discomfort. Equally unfortunate is that I've not seen an article from "Dunphy" on reforming the LAPD to remove the thugs, which is a problem in many other departments as well.
UPDATE: Dunphey writes this about the Inglewood PD incident.
