Former Mayor Jim Baca: APD's problem is the training

From Mayor Baca’s Blog:

It was more Marine Corps boot camp that an academy for turning out public servants and police officers. …[I]f Mayor Berry wants to find out why so many police shootings have taken place over the last few years, and why social media statements are outrageous, then go look at the training program.
