White LAPD Officer wins Discrimination Suit
Paul Waymire (on the left in the picture) was awarded $125,000 by a jury for his pain and suffering related to the treatment, according to several media stories. The officer was awarded the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for helping to rescue a man from a burning car in 2005.
What exactly did his Latino supervisor do that was considered discrimination? Waymire said his supervisor denied him promotions and instead gave the jobs to lesser cops because he is white. It’s unknown if the department will appeal the case.
