We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

You may recall the traffic officers who were accosted by a half-naked porn star not long ago, and instead of suggesting that she cover up (not that we have anything against nudity or porn stars, but that was probably indecent exposure), they played along and appeared in the video she was shooting. While on duty. At first, LA city officials played dumb about the incident, claiming that they had no idea it took place and that the officers in question hadn't been disciplined because they couldn't be identified.

But following an investigation, they've been able to identify traffic officer John Dancler, and he has been fired as a result of the video, according to KCBS.

The 23-year veteran could be seen on the video fondling the actress' breasts, spanking her, and letting her straddle him, they report. He was fired on the grounds of misconduct, and is appealing the decision.
