As an advocate for those who continue to suffer racial injustices, disproportionate and selective enforcement, intolerance at the hands of a police force that swore an oath to protect and serve yet seems to lack empathy and compassion in certain areas of the community; I am here for you.

Contempt of Cop™ – a phrase I coined which describes what happens when an officer gets angry during a police contact. My definition: when an officer steps outside the boundaries of training and policy and punishes someone because of a failure to comply.

Should a citizen survive the cop’s physical assault, that person will next find themselves shortly thereafter under arrest for interfering or resisting. Attempting to hold court curbside with an officer will get you beat up and arrested every time. You see, there is an unwritten but well-known rule in street policing; When a cop puts hands on you, he can’t just leave you- you must go to jail for something. So be clear, it may not be you right now – but it might be you next.

In this new era of Jim Crow which consists of trumped up traffic stops, unnecessary deadly police shootings, and mass incarceration, I will advocate for you; and shine a light on mistruths, misconceptions and mistakes that could get you killed by a cop.

“Protect and serve” communities have become more about protecting errant officers and serving minorities grief, financial harm, and unspeakable heartache. Indeed, racial profiling, dishonest cops, abuse under the color of authority and disparate selective enforcement of the law is how injustice is served.

I spent twenty years in a LAPD uniform as a patrol officer and supervisor, so I know first-hand that suspects attempting to avoid arrest are sometimes uncooperative, combative and will run. I have chased, fought and arrested many suspected criminals; and shot no one.

My mission is one of advocacy, justice, reform and accountability through transparency and honest dialogue.

It may not be you right now – but it might be you next.
