I retired from the L.A. Police Department (Hollywood Division) in September 1969.
After spending a full hour and a half watching that police pursuit and shooting on May 10 in the Vernon area, it showed me that police work in my day was a “picnic” compared to what goes on now, and things aren’t going to improve in the future.
That hero dog should be awarded a medal of honor.
