LAPD's Review of Dorner's Firing Underway

Posted: Updated:

LAPD's Chief Charlie Beck announced Tuesday, Special Assistant for Constitutional Policing Gerald Chaleff was already reviewing Christopher Dorner's termination case. Because this has never been done, there's no set process. 

Chief Beck also answered critics who questioned the value of an internal review.  His response, Chaleff working with the Inspector General and LA Police Commission, will be able to re-interview witnesses if necessary.  An external reviewer couldn't do the same. 

What's not clear is what happens if the review concludes the original judgment was wrong.  If it turns out, Chris Dorner wasn't lying when he reported his training officer kicked a suspect, that would mean his training officer did lie.  Would that mean reprecussions for her?
