AFRICANGLOBE – The Los Angeles Police Department is doing some soul searching on racism in the ranks.
As a result of the Christopher Dorner case, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck says he’s trying to find out what officers have to say about racism in the department.
“We’re doing very large-level focus groups to determine department attitudes and views on racism within the organization,” Beck told radio station KNX1070′s Ed Mertz.
More than 500 officers will be questioned anonymously, according to Beck.
However, with 10,700 sworn personnel on the payroll, not everyone will get a chance to speak.
