Parks for Mayor?

I want to get into it here about the prospects for Bernard Parks as he runs for mayor of Los Angeles after having raised a measly 80 grand for his campaign. As Patterico has reminded me, there are a number of blackfolks in Los Angeles who are not too fond of Parks for the way he finessed the aftermath of the Rampart Scandal, especially with the open allegations that he terminated all investigations into cops involved with Suge Knight and apparently cut immunity deals that defied reason.

I am saying all of this from memory because there's actually a lot to be said that I have some of my own writing about and I want to get some feedback on this thread too. I recently met Parks at Ofari's but didn't take the time to deal with him. I wonder now how he's playing his own race card in assuming some significant majority of an automatic black vote against Villaraigosa and Hahn.

Parks directly interferred with the investigation of my son's murder with his stupid disbanding of South Bureau Homicide and kicking all cases back to division level.
South Bureau was a elite unit designed solely to solve homicides. During the time my son was murdered, they solved 125 of the 150 murders in South Bureau of that year. Sadly my son's murder was one of the 25 unsolved
Parks came to power and immediately disbanded the unit because he believed that homicides could be "more effectively solved" by detectives using LESS RESOURCES that existed at the division level
His rational was that the disbanding "saved money"
Finally we had a great detective on our case at South Bureau. Parks reassigned him to the Valley Division as a supervisor driving a black and white.
To this day my son's case remains unsolved. Parks is worthless

Thank you. Thank you. That's what I'm talking about. I so much want to hear from people on the ground. This is what blogging is all about.
