Growing up in the 80's on the east coast I first learned of Gates and his treacherous ways, funny enough not through the media but rather being a fan of rap music and hearing west coast rappers crucifying the guy on their records. I can remember Ice Cube uttering those famous words in one of his songs and warning "don't let me catch Daryl Gates in traffic!" I never heard anything positive associated with his name whenever it was spoken and often wondered why this guy had this Hitler like reputation as a police chief. This book, told from the perspective of a man who worked under Gates in one of his espionage type units does a good job of explaining how that reputation was well earned. Whether or not you choose to believe everything Rothmiller is telling you is up to each individual reader but, even if only half of what he says is the truth it's enough to make you cringe and wonder how many other commissioners and police chiefs around the country were, and are still engaging in such breaches of civil liberties. Scary stuff but very informative and will leave you wondering and scratching your head. Pretty crazy but I now understand why people felt and said the things about him they did say.

I read this book when it first came out and it's no less relevant now than it was then. It's amazing what the police in our own country were doing to our own citizens. It's a fast read that rivals the speed and action of some of the best fiction.

Okay, I'll admit it: I was a sheeple. I bought food in the grocery store believing it was safe for me because the government wouldn't let me eat poisonous food, right? The book, Death by Supermarket (Deville) cured me of that. And I also believed that "Officer Friendly" was there to protect me, and the book L.A. Secret Police, cured me of that.

Over the last 5 years I have been on an enlightening journey of opening my eyes and waking up. And this book was a big part of that process. I know I drove my husband crazy because as I read further along into the book, I was constantly saying stuff like, "Wow! OMG! Honey, you gotta hear this....OMG!" Rothmiller's book just does that to you. It is filled with a lot of information that will leave you wth an upset stomach: its pretty disturbing. Not in a grotesque way, but in a Oh-my-God-I-cant-believe-this-really-goes-on kind of way.

At this price, I would get a couple of copies, because you will want your friends and family to read this book!

Excellent. Presents in microcosm what is wrong with the bureaucratic police machine in modern day America as well as how inept, incompetent, but politically astute leadership rises to the top. We see a reflection of what is going wrong in America, in it's justice system, and it's politics. We see why so many institutions are now out of control at all levels of government. We see daily reminders in Ferguson, in Cleveland, and in New York, of police out of control. In a perfect world, a book of this caliber should change things. Sadly, in this one, it won't. Read this book and you'll know why.

I grew up in the days when "Officer Friendly" would come to your elementary grade school and tell you why you should worship the police. Propaganda, much??!! Any way, my friend passed this book along to me and told me to be ready to be shocked and I was. NOT THAT I CONDONE CHRISTOPHER DORNER'S ACTIONS IN ANY WAY, but once you read this book, it certainly makes you wonder if what he said about LAPD before he went off on his shooting tirade last year is in any way true. This book will make you ponder a lot of different things!

Intriguing expose' of LAPD's interface with the high and the low. Informative police procedure writing on how things get done in LA. Gives readers insight into the pressures a bureaucracy can bring to bear on one of their own who is perceived as a possible threat. would be five star if post script notes were updated or hotlinks were provided for tracking the aftermath \

This book blewe me away as to the amount of curruption that happens within the LAPD. What abuse of power! I wish I had a badge!

The Los Angeles Police Department has not changed its old habits. Daryl Gates and Charlie Beck are twins. They trained their cops to provoke and harass the blacks and hispanics. This book is a must to read and have in our reference list. I am very pleased with my purchase. The price was right, the condition as advertised, and the service excellent. Thank you very much.
