Cop or drug dealer?

By DAVID S. BERNSTEIN  |  November 9, 2006

There are rumors on the street that Pulido is already cooperating with authorities and naming names. One JP activist wonders if the federal agents’ October arrests of 18 alleged Heath Street gang members may be connected to the Pulido investigation. Trials, and more details about the allegations, may be a long time coming. That will make it difficult for the department, and its new commissioner, Ed Davis, to restore faith among its officers — many of whom are not only wondering if more of their comrades are implicated, but are openly bitter about having worked for the past two years alongside officers known by management to be corrupt. (Their bosses explain that to remove the suspect officers from the job would have tipped them off to the investigation.) And that’s not to mention the difficult job of repairing the damage done to an already fragile relationship with the community. Pulido’s story, and its ramifications, is far from over.
