Let’s get this straight:
There was never a “long and often bloody struggle between LAPD Police Chief William Parker and gangster kingpin Ben ‘Bugsy’ Siegel” for the simple reason that Siegel was shot to death in June 1947 and Parker didn’t become police chief until August 1950. In other words, Parker became chief three years after Siegel’s death.
Why can’t anybody get L.A. history right?
ps. You know that Siegel was killed in Beverly Hills, not the city of Los Angeles, right? Good.
