LA Police Ordered to Reduce Controversial Traffic Stops
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti says he's concerned about a newspaper report that a special police unit is pulling over a disproportionate number of African-American motorists and he's ordered the department to scale back vehicle stops. The Los Angeles Times reports Garcetti said in a statement Wednesday that he's ordered the chief of police to prioritize other elements of the city's crime-reduction strategy.
