LA Times story alleging racism by Torrance PD including Garver from this video. http://articles.latimes.com/2010/mar/15/local/la-me-bias-torrance15-2010mar15
Here are what other members of the community have to say…
From Yelp, reviews of Torrance Police Department.
1. “One of the worst police departments I have ever seen. A hideous, militaristic organization that specializes in terrorizing the children of its community.”
2. “Seriously? You had not an ounce of compassion for anyone and instead, brought shame to yourself and your department. That man and the accident victim deserved better.”
3. “Yeah, i’ve seen these boys in blue beat people untill they’re black and blue in Wilmington, Gardena, Hawthorne, Redondo Beach and El Camino Village. the cops tell(black) people to stay out of Torrance but they force themselves on every surrounding city.”
4. “Seriously TPD? …these police officers that approached the “suspicious” vehicle and shot first and asked questions later! These police officers really graduated from the police academy? Wow! This is unacceptable for any police department to do this.”
5. ” I don’t trust the Torrance Police Department aka Gestapo! Once upon a time I use to feel safe however, that has gone and it is a shame to our community. You are here to help the community not harass those that live in it. Our youth do not respect you and have great reasons for that.”
6. ” I didn’t do anything wrong but he came at me with a really negative, angry, aggressive attitude and I was surprised by that being a female.”(lucky if you were not sexually assaulted)
