So, a federal agency issues a detainer or Want, based on a violation of federal law, and Chief Beck will put on his judicial robes and will decide if the detainer or want meets HIS criteria for detention?

Embarrassing. I hope the federal government, especially the Customs and Border Protection Service at LAX stops arresting incoming suspects wanted on LAPD warrants. After all, cooperation works both ways.

Pathetic cowtowing to illegal immigrant advocates.

Being retired LAPD, I'm appalled at the Chiefs stance on immigration enforcement. This new and related policies are in direct conflict with 834 of the penal code. Pick and choose is not his choice to make, if it's contrary to the law under 834. Illegal is illegal, and arrestees should be charged as such, regardless of whether any other crime was involved. Sure, process for the open charge, but place a hold for HSI.

In order to gain the trust of a small percentage of the LA population, the LAPD will cause a complete loss of trust with the entire legal, tax paying, voting public. It is unfair that an unelected offical has the power to change laws, and there is nothing the public can do about it.
