LAPD Officer “Jack Dunphy” has a must-read column on National Review Online. It is about the recent controversial incident in which a 13-year-old auto theft suspect was shot and killed as he rammed his car into an LAPD patrol car. I have previously discussed the L.A. Times‘s coverage of this incident here and here, and Jack Dunphy has a few choice words for the folks at the Times as well.
This Sunday, the L.A. Times “Outside the Tent” column, which provides a space in the Sunday Opinion section to critics of the paper, will be written by yours truly. The piece is in the final editing stages right now.
I have worked hard in the piece to construct an argument that will (hopefully) be convincing to people with a wide range of political viewpoints. Time will tell whether I have succeeded.
UPDATE: I originally said that the “Outside the Tent” piece runs on the op-ed page. I should have said that it runs in the Sunday Opinion section, which is a different section run by a different editor.
