It is with great sadness that I heard the news of the passing of Mr. Larry Aubry. Mr. Aubry and I have met on several occasions throughout my law enforcement career. Since becoming LAPD’s Chief-nearly two years ago-Larry attended several community meetings and he would challenge many decisions and policies of the LAPD. He wanted to ensure the decisions of law enforcement was fair to everyone-particularly to those within the African American communities. His weekly column in the Los Angles Sentinel spoke volumes of his desire to be the voice of those who are disenfranchised. He will sorely be missed.
