Sights aimed at fire chief
The Times says that Controller Laura Chick and City Councilman Jack Weiss called Monday for the removal of LAFD chief William Bamattre. The Daily News says that Chick stopped short, makes no mention of Weiss [ Oops, yes it does] but that union chief Pat McOsker did call for the chief's firing (the Times agrees on McOsker.) Bamattre says he intends to retire in 2008 after fixing problems with pranks and the department's culture: "I've heard a lot of people calling for my head. There is no other person who can come in and implement these changes better than I." The Times also says a transcript shows the City Council was told about Tennie Pierce's past as a prankster before voting to give him $2.7 million. LAT, DN
