Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

1.Cheryl Dorsey , Author, Retired Sergeant, LAPD

 ----

1. Cheryl Dorsey shares her odyssey through the ranks of LAPD as a black woman beginning at the end of the 1970s at a time when women were first encouraged to join the police force amidst strong resentment by male officers in a traditionally all male force. She describes how supervisorial abuse abound especially due to bias of racism, sexism and reverse racism. She describes what she means by culture and the bond of officers who "have your back," and the difficulty of accountability and transparency when reporting fails to happen for fear of retaliation at "breaking the bond", forming what she called a Sheeple mentality. As a woman and single mom she avoided the after work social life of the male officers and this helped her not to be compromised in her conscience by the culture which presented so many obstacles to her. Cheryl honorably retired in 2000, but not without much disputing with the agency's internal Board of Rights. Cheryl was proud to report that she never had to shoot a person, After a fellow officer went beserk after unfair treatment within the LAPD and took the lives of many innocent victims, Cheryl published her memoir Black & Blue: The Creation of a Manifesto  in 2013.  Sgt. Dorsey descibes what changes she sees necessary to lower the stress of officers to help prevent the horrific overreaction in confronting suspects, especially people of color. She encourages the agencies to hire more women and minorities, especially women for their natural nurturing attitude in confronting suspects, since she noticed male officers most often take it personal when a suspect resists arrest as a matter of male pride, heightening the tense situation with rage. This is a fascinating interview and not to be missed in light of the upcoming election for Sonoma County Sheriff, in which we for the first time in decades have more than one candidate to choose from. Maybe a change is coming?

 

About our Guest:  Cheryl Dorsey is a Los Angeles native and began a career in law enforcement in 1978 with the State of California, Department of Justice. Cheryl later joined the Los Angeles Police Department where she worked in all four bureaus of operation; South, Central, West and Valley. During her tenure on the LAPD, she worked exclusively in patrol and specialized units such as traffic, vice and the infamous gang unit known as Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums(C.R.A.S.H.) She retired after 20 years of service. As an LAPD insider, Cheryl Dorsey has written an autobiography, The Creation of a Manifesto, Black & Blue, which pulls the covers off the LAPD and provides an unfiltered look into the department’s internal processes along with offering suggestions of how to improve the culture. Cheryl is a much sought after police expert on important issues making national headlines; as such she has appeared as a guest expert with Tavis Smiley & on the Dr. Phil Show. Cheryl is a frequent commentator on CNN , HLN, MSNBC and KPCC.

**“Las Adelitas” Talk by SRJC History Instructor Laura Larqué
Tuesday, March 27, 9-10:30 AM
“Adelitas” were women who served as cooks, cleaners, scouts, and nurses during the Mexican Revolution. If their male relatives died in battle, these women took their place and started fighting in the army as Soldaderas. Larqué will share some of the untold stories of these valiant women and how their contributions to the revolution have been overlooked by historians because they were poor Indigenous or Mestiza ethnic background.
