LAPD Mum on Cop Who Pulled Gun on Anaheim Teens

Now that the Los Angeles Police Department has released the name of the off-duty officer who fired a gun near a crowd of teenagers last week in a residential neighborhood of Anaheim, the controversy has migrated to L.A.

For the past week, the voicemail greeting for the public information officer at the Anaheim Police Department has reminded those "calling to express displeasure over the video posted on YouTube" to call a separate complaint line and to "please also understand the officer works for the LAPD, not the Anaheim Police Department."

Last week, Anaheim officials bore nearly all the fallout from Officer Kevin Ferguson's aggressive actions, portions of which, including the gunshot, were filmed by some of the teens who stood by observing as the incident escalated.

Anaheim police arriving at the scene within moments after the shot was fired arrested not the off-duty LAPD officer, who fired his gun near a crowd of nearly a dozen teenagers, but rather two teenage boys, ages 13 and 15. Police later released the boys without charging them. As for Ferguson, Chief Raul Quezada said there was “insufficient evidence at the time to prove the officer's actions rose to the level of a criminal act."
