Hoping to reduce crime the Los Angeles Police Department introduced CRASH (Community Resource against Street Hoodlums.) Too bad that CRASH knew of no rules. Using excessive force and planting evidence are two forms of police deviance which are cited in the Report of the Rampart Independence Review Panel. Police deviance acts are not exclusive to the Los Angeles Police Department, because there have been plenty of situations all around where the use of excessive force and planting evidence was done by police. The Rampart CRASH officers routinely planted drugs, guns or other evidence on criminals who have been arrested, or fabricated probable cause. (Rampart Review, 2000) Tampering with or planting evidence was not a new problem with officers. Maybe, the worst misconduct came from the Los Angeles Police Department big wigs that ignored all warning signs and have failed to provide leadership, oversight, management, and supervision to the units. (Rampart Review, 2000) The repercussions of the deviance by the Los Angeles Police Department will be felt for years when the community struggles to rebuild trust and the department struggles to earn creditability.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
