None of us want to be in a situation where we need to whistleblow, but we find it necessary when illegal and often heinous acts are going on. We want to work in places where integrity matters, but that isn’t always the case. The Los Angeles whistleblower lawyers at Rager & Yoon – Employment Lawyers wish to discuss a recent Los Angeles case involving our police department.
What Happened In This Whistleblowing Incident?
In August 2020, a deputy shot and killed 18-year-old Andres Guardado. According to whistleblowers, this was part of his initiation into the gang of officers known as the “Executioners” or at least to garner their attention, hoping for membership.
At least twelve police officers in the LAPD Compton area have matching tattoos signifying their allegiance to each other. They use their power to tilt and alter the LAPD crime statistics in their favor. They have also used intimidation techniques to cover up their tracks, making sure the wrong people don’t complain.
These officers, these “executioners,” are thriving on lawlessness and ending people’s lives in the name of serving and protecting. Multiple whistleblowers have rallied to stop this terrible action, but they face the wrath of fellow officers.
Going against your fellow officers, whistleblowing, is a call for integrity, doing the right thing, and putting so much on the line. If you are in this situation, please do not hesitate to give us all if you need an attorney. Our whistleblowing attorneys would love to help you immediately.
