Earlier this week I brought you the appallingly insensitive reaction of Dodgers Owner Frank McCourt after a fan was beaten into a coma in the Dodger Stadium parking lot following a Dodgers-Giants game last week.
Since McCourt’s unbelievably tone deaf response, local media-fueled public outrage in Los Angeles has grown exponentially, so much so that McCourt is now scrambling to repair
After McCourt was verbally savaged by current L.A.P.D. Chief Charlie Beck at a press conference yesterday for his mishandling of yet another violent crime at Dodger Stadium, McCourt announced he’d hired former L.A. Police Chief William Bratton as a security consultant.
The move by McCourt was clearly a public relations ploy to align himself with the popular Bratton, only days after McCourt had indicated that he was essentially satisfied with his own ballpark security force.
But while McCourt was writing a check to Bratton in a transparent attempt to extricate himself from what is now an irreparable public relations disaster, the Giants had already committed a check to help the L.A.P.D. solve the unspeakable violence perpetrated on a fan outside Dodger Stadium!
