Yesterday, a city website published what turned out to be "a confidential report on police misconduct that included the names of hundreds of officers," much to the dismay of the Los Angeles Police Department, and the Police Protective League, abc7.com is reporting. Included in the report, which also was delivered to news media via e-mail, were "the names of about 250 officers that the internal affairs unit had investigated over allegations of racial profiling." The posting came down within an hour of being online, and the Police Commission along with LAPD reps issued apologies to the police union president, who called the incident "absolutely outrageous."
