William Bratton discusses fan violence at Dodger Stadium
Bratton said that his company contacted the Dodgers because he knew they’d need a full review of security after a Giants fan was viciously beaten after a game at Dodger Stadium.
“We will begin working there Monday,” Bratton said.
Bratton said the L.A. chief of police already made it clear that they’re going to have a lot heavier police presence and they’ll crack down on alcohol-related problems. Bratton said that he thinks there are a lot of things that can be fixed there. One of the many things to work on is getting more lights in the parking lot.
But Bratton wanted to make it clear that the Dodgers are not alone. “What they’re talking about is not unique to Dodger Stadium,” Bratton said. “It’s a growing phenomenon in sports.”
In fact, Bratton said the U.S. is not nearly as bad as soccer fans in Europe.
