Defeat of Proposition 1

I can't help but believe that the voters of Los Angeles made the correct choice on Proposition 1. It became particularly evident when one reads comments from Chief Daryl F. Gates, which were phoned in from the "retreat for high ranking officers of the Police Department" in Oxnard. I'll just bet, even without looking, who paid for this retreat. What a good and useful way to spend tax money.
