LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A Los Angeles Police Department captain who was removed as commander of the Foothill Division for allegedly failing to act against officers accused of using excessive force during a videotaped arrest filed a harassment claim against the chief, it was reported today.

Capt. Joseph Hiltner filed a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

"I have been demoted two substantial levels and transferred against my will without cause," according to Hiltner's complaint, a copy of which was obtained by the station. "I have and will continue to lose substantial financial damages and extensive damage to my standing and reputation in my workplace."

Hiltner was removed from his command last week, with LAPD Chief Charlie Beck saying Hiltner was "severely deficient in his response" to an arrest captured on surveillance video that appeared to show a handcuffed woman being thrown to the ground.

Michelle Jordan, a 34-yearold registered nurse from Sunland, was stopped in a Del Taco parking lot near Foothill Boulevard and Saluda Avenue in Tujunga around 11:15 a.m. Aug. 21 for allegedly using a cell phone while driving.

Police said Jordan got out of her car and was taken to the ground and handcuffed. After she was handcuffed, she was taken to the ground a second time. The video shows one of the officers landing on top of her during the second takedown.

Jordan was arrested and booked on suspicion of interfering and resisting arrest, and then released on her own recognizance, police said.

The officers involved, one with 22 years of service and the other a probationary officer with 10 months on the job, were reassigned to non-field duties pending the outcome of the investigation, police said.

But Beck took more severe steps against Hiltner, removing him from command of the station and initiating the process of demoting him.

"Proper steps were not taken, including appropriate notifications and the removal of the involved officers from the field," Beck said.

Hiltner's attorney told Channel 4 the demotion was in response to his involvement in an earlier, unrelated harassment case against another LAPD captain who was eventually exonerated.

Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
