THREAD on @LAPDChiefMoore's never-ending incompetence & why he MUST be relieved of duties ASAP: #FireChiefMoore

1. There's a culture of violence w/in @LAPDHQ, Moore has shot 2 people, killing 1. With him at helm, officers are free to act as they wish w/o fear of accountability
2. Used a white-supremacist media outlet, Breitbart, to recruit LAPD officer applicants. nytimes.com/2019/09/29/us/…
3. Enabled anti-Black racism by allowing Black people to be stopped by LAPD at 5 times their population share and searched at 3 times the rate of everyone else. spectrumnews1.com/ca/la-west/pub…
4. Fostered a culture of corruption under which officers in South Central Los Angeles were found to have illegally and unjustly entered the names of Black and Brown residents into gang databases. cnn.com/2020/01/16/us/…
5. Presented internal investigations that repeatedly avoid accountability, including finding that not a single one of the 4862 racial-bias complaints filed by the public was valid.
6. Lobbied each year for @LAPDHQ to be awarded more than 50% of the City of Los Angeles’ general fund at the expense of vital city services and resources.
7. Failed to mandate the wearing of masks by LAPD officers, tolerating statements like "COVID isn't real," even after at least eight LAPD staff have died from the virus.
losangeles.cbslocal.com/2021/02/04/lap…
8. @LAPDChiefMoore has allowed his department to become a major public health concern. Covid cases are on the rise in Los Angeles and only 50% of @LAPDHQ officers are vaccinated

latimes.com/california/sto…
9. @LAPDChiefMoore admitted that none of the mask complaints made against @LAPDHQ officers were ever acted upon, thus, no disciplinary action was brought down on them
10. Attempted to shield murderous police officers from disciplinary action, including the officers who killed #GrecharioMack, #AlbertRamonDorsey, who were given rare “out of policy” findings by the Los Angeles Police Commission.
uscannenbergmedia.com/2019/12/06/fam…
11. Stood by killer cop Toni McBride after murdering Daniel Hernandez and her shooting being out of policy. It's because Toni's dad, Jamie McBride, is the head of the @LAPDHQ lobbying arm, the @LAPPL

latimes.com/california/sto…
12. @LAPDChiefMoore stated protestors were responsible for the death of #GeorgeFloyd. Asserting that protestors were “capitalizing” off Floyd’s death, and that “his death is on their hands as much as it is those officers [who killed him].”
13. Created a culture where officers were enabled to circulate a "Valentine Card" with a despicable reference to Mr. Floyd and the words "you take my breath away."

The @LAPDHQ officer involved will not be held accountable cnn.com/2021/07/07/us/…
14. Refused to disclose or publicly hold to account the @LAPDHQ officers who participated in the failed coup on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. spectrumnews1.com/ca/la-east/pub…
15. Compared @BLMLA & @Blklivesmatter to the right-wing extremist group the Proud Boys, stating that both “represent ideology that’s counter to this democracy" LMAOOOOO (side note - he tells reporters that PCC members are part of the Antifa org 😭😭😭) latimes.com/california/sto…
16. Colluded with member(s) of the @lapdcommission Commissioners (@SteveSoboroff) & the police association (@LAPPL) on votes and positions taken by the supposed oversight body.
17. Lied on the record about the number of traffic stops made in South Central Los Angeles in 2021, stating that the number was 74, when the actual recorded number was 639. latimes.com/california/sto…
18. Coordinated a secret plan with @MitchOFarrell & @MayorOfLA to enter Echo Park Lake in the middle of the night in order to remove residents of the park and put fencing up around the park

19. Had 182 Angelenos violently arrested in Echo Park the night after the initial raid (none of the protestors were ever charged with anything). @LAPDHQ broke @isaacscher's arm the night before & then gave EP resident a concussion after rushing down alley

latimes.com/california/sto…
20. @LAPDChiefMoore has completely failed to hold officers accountable for excessive force and other abuses during last year’s mass demonstrations.

latimes.com/california/sto…
21. @LAPDChiefMoore has held literally ZERO @LAPDHQ officers accountable for brutalizing protestors all summer

latimes.com/california/sto…
22. He's literally stealing our fucking tax dollars by receiving a pension & salary at the same time

@LAPDChiefMoore retired, collected a $1.27 million pension, then the city hired him back. He receives $240k in pensions per year on top of $350k salary
knock-la.com/police-chief-m…
23. @LAPDChiefMoore wouldn't release body cam footage of police brutality at protests to the public.

laist.com/news/lapd-wont…
24. This bullshit op-ed that @latimes let @LAPDChiefMoore write that was premised on him saying "@lapdhq not a racist department, we just reflect society's racism" @JamesQueallyLAT

latimes.com/opinion/story/…
25. Twitter is maxing us at 25 tweets on this thread, we will continue about how @LAPDChiefMoore has lied over and over and over again in the past few weeks about @LAPDHQ bombing a South Central residential neighborhood

26. Not only were @LAPDHQ officers in D.C. for the Capitol insurrection on January 6th, there was a hate crime that occurred RIGHT in front of LAPD officers in Los Angeles. LAPD took no actions. They don't keep us safe
27. At yesterday's @lapdcommission meeting, @LAPDChiefMoore blamed the person who was shot at the Wi Spa action this weekend and said they were blocking the *true* target.

28. @LAPDChiefMoore told @lapdcommission yesterday that @LAPDHQ would investigate all allegations of misconduct (LOL) & said videos posted on socials only showed certain perspectives & activists were “essentially shopping clips & snippets” to distort facts losangelesblade.com/2021/07/20/lap…
29. We will keep adding to the thread but @BLMLA has been calling for @LAPDChiefMoore's removal for a while now.

Sign the petition to #FireChiefMoore: campaigns.organizefor.org/petitions/fire…
30. Now, after reading ALL of that, and after @LAPDHQ bombed a residential South Central neighborhood - @BLMLA & allies have reinforced our position that @LAPDChiefMoore MUST GO. #FireChiefMoore

(this article incorrectly states that LAPD budget is $1.7B)

abc7.com/south-la-firew…
31. @LAPDChiefMoore & @LAPDHQ called a press conference & asked the media to join them as they set off a bomb

1 of the most jaw-dropping, head-scratching facts is that they didn't even fucking weigh the explosives. They guessed. They tried to kill people

32. Councilmember @CurrenDPriceJr, who represents the district that @LAPDHQ set off a bomb in, disputes @LAPDChiefMoore's claim that LAPD contacted the council office about either the detonation or evacuation.

LAPD officers are posting stuff like this on Instagram.

They show up ready to make protestors “suck your teeth off the sidewalk” just in case the media was wondering who the bad ones are here. @LAPDHQ think protests are war and they show up looking for violence.
here's the post on instagram, if you'd like to chime in: instagram.com/p/CRhLd-sMnHo/…
lol he made his account private now. all that tough talk and you can’t take some activists chirping at you in the comments? Shame.

You can donate to the Becerra family here: gofundme.com/f/lapd-firewor…

The city of Los Angeles has refused to respond to any of the claims made by South Central residents. The families need help now!
Here is a thread of GoFundMe's for a few of the impacted families and the man @LAPDHQ arrested:
Here's the article which the Becerra family was interviewed for and stated that their lawyer created this GoFundMe page to help with expenses.

Holy shit... @LACoSheriff is actually spouting “Soros” conspiracy theories in front of elected bodies. One of the many reasons we call him the ‘Trump of L.A.’
This is from a meeting on June 1st. You can watch the full meeting here, though this discussion comes up around the 2 hour mark:

Here's a handy map of #LASDgangs Image
This is just a map of 10 of the 15 active @LASDHQ deputy gangs! Read more about #LASDgangs from @cerisecastle here: lasdgangs.com ImageImageImageImage
"Though the central allegation in whistleblower, Deputy Art Gonzalez, sworn testimony is that the Executioners “dominate” the Compton sheriff’s office, at least nine other such gangs are known to operate across the department, & have done so for decades."
