First of all, I don’t have a personal beef with the Sheriff. I don’t even doubt that he’s a swell guy. Most patronage politicians are. What I don’t like is his behavior of trying to expand his office at our expense and threatening people with lawsuits if he doesn’t get his way.
 
If you really want to resolve this issue, here’s how to do it. The first step is to find out what the law says. There is an easy (and FREE) way to do that.

The lawsuit can be easily legally avoided by abolishing the LAPD and transferring all the officers, duties and responsibilities to the LA Sheriff Dept. Maintaing the basic command structure. This is the ONLY LEGAL way to solve the issue AND make everyone happy as well as save $206,000 in salaries (except the police chief and deputy chief who will be out of a job and the county council who enjoy breaking the law). This would solve Mr. Chapmen's concerns as well as Mr. and Mrs. Chandler and Mrs. O'leary's.
