Three Los Angeles police officers indicted for classifying detainees as gang members
Three agents of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) were charged amid the scandal facing the institution for making false classifications as gang members to drivers stopped at traffic stops and entered into a state database, reported this Friday the County Attorney.
Agents René Braga, 40; Raúl Uribe, 34, and Julio García, 36, face arrest warrants issued by the Los Angeles Prosecutor’s Office, Jackey Lacey, in a plot in which three other agents had already been charged.
In total, six police officers have been charged with entering false information into the Cal Gang state database, which is for the exclusive use of the authorities and where they are suspected of belonging to gangs.
“In all three cases, officers are accused of writing that a person admitted to being a member of a gang despite the fact that body camera video showed that the defendants never asked people about their membership in a gang or that people denied gang membership if asked, ”Lacey’s office said.
Braga is accused of filing a false police report and preparing false documentary evidence in a case. Uribe and García are accused of preparing false documentary evidence in two other cases.
The first accusations were made last July when Officer Braxton Shaw was accused of falsifying information on 43 field interview cards.

Michael Coblentz, 43, and Nicolas Martinez, 37, round out the list of defendants for July, each with one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice and multiple counts of filing a police report and preparing false documentary evidence.
Another 18 officers remain under investigation. Of these, 11 are at home waiting for the results and seven were assigned to desk tasks, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The scandal prompted the California attorney general, Xavier Becerra, to conduct an investigation and remove all information provided by the Los Angeles police.
In 2016 a state audit found that the Cal Gang lacked oversight and that names of people who had no affiliation with these groups had been included, including “people who were still children,” Becerra said.
The audit effectively found names of children as young as one year old classified as gang members, a situation that resulted in the state legislature passing a rule that empowers the Prosecutor’s Office to make the necessary improvements in the database used by all police agencies. Of California.
