|FRAMING A FACTUALLY INNOCENT MAN
I essentially resigned from the Los Angeles Police Department on January 7, 1992, because the LAPD Southwest Sexual Assault Unit knowingly framed a factually innocent African American man for multiple rapes, including an assault of a Caucasian student attending University of Southern California.
In the past, the management grudgingly allowed me to exonerate citizens who were innocent, guiltless, falsely arrested and or framed by LAPD, especially minorities and non English speaking immigrants. In my capacity as the lead LAPD investigator in charge of all felonious crimes occurring on USC campus, I was aware of dozens of sexual assaults that went unreported because the suspects were privileged white ivy league students.
In this highly publicized case involving an innocent African American "serial rapist" and a white USC student, the line in the sand was drawn. I was not about to permit the USC educated prosecutors and USC schooled LAPD brass to lynch and condemn a factually innocent black man and let him languish in California gulags for the rest of his life. It was not the first and it would not be the last Pavelic v. LAPD battle that would be litigated in the interest of justice.
To free an innocent man is a daunting task and I was hell-bent in provoking the help of anyone (especially the New York Times and The Los Angeles Times) alleging the same message, over and over again: that the disciplinary system under the leadership of Chief Daryl Gates (a USC graduate) lacked legitimacy and sent a deplorable signal to others on the force that it was OK to frame people, falsify official investigations, violate the LAPD manual, discredit the Code of Ethics and be dishonest, as long as it benefitted the LAPD and a handful of Los Angeles District Attorney prosecutors, whose loyalty to University of Southern California was more important than their oath of office.
Having already publically criticized Chief Daryl Gates in the unwarranted beating of Rodney King, over the ensuing weeks and months I met privately with several prominent Los Angeles movers and shakers to make sure that Chief Gates was held accountable for his mismanagement of the Department. I was told in no uncertain terms to be patient and that Chief Gates days were numbered.
In March of 1992, the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office were forced to dismiss all charges against the USC serial "rapist" and shortly thereafter Chief Gates was given an ultimatum to voluntarily resign or face the consequences for corruptly mismanaging the Los Angeles Police Department.
Following Chief Gate's resignation, on June 9, 1992, Los Angeles Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky was quoted in the Los Angeles Times making the following comment about Chief Gates; "....I have never dealt with a sicker mind, and a more outrageous personality, megalomaniacal personality, than this man, who has a problem recognizing what the truth is. He has left the Los Angeles Police Department in a total shambles. He has left this city in a total lurch...."
Eight months after Chief Daryl Gates was ousted from office, I was quietly granted a medical pension for bronchial asthma, which I proved was induced and or exacerbated by Chief Gates and his corrupt managers.
