So here's the actual WORD, y'all.
Bratton was disappointed that Council chose to fight this agreement, because he wanted to get the ball rolling. (Perhaps because he felt enforcement between 6a-9p, would be the wedge he needs to get the job done.)
However, there is talk that Jan Perry has a "temporary trial plan", that LAPD will try out for 90 days, along the lines of the ACLU agreement (that Council voted to reserved the right to challenge it in court at a later date).
But, Regarding this "trial plan", LAPD says they cannot lift a finger because now that Council voted "no" the ACLU agreement, all bets are off, and the LAPD's hands and battons are tied, because the court order now remains. (They can't break the law/go against a court order to enforce the law.)
So, what's up with the Jan Perry test plan? Well, as we speak, I am told that the City Attorney's office is looking over the facts, to see what LAPD can and cannot do regarding enforcement of Skid Row, now that the ACLU agreement is off, and the court order preventing LAPD from arresting homeless for sleeping on the street, and more importantly, forcing those "tent cities" to be disassembled on a daily basis. (The real problem, see story below) is in effect.
Hopefully, the City Attorney's office will be able to come up with enough stuff that LAPD can do, to unlock Bratton's own handcuffs, and let them get the ball rolling on Skid Row.
Then, Mr. City Attorney will meet with City Council, and they'll get back to LAPD on what can and cannot be done under the court order. Whatever the outcome, I hope it makes the ACLU happy. Cause when the ACLU is happy, the Mayor is happy.
