LOS ANGELES (CBS) — British Prime Minister David Cameron is calling on former LAPD chief William Bratton to help with the devastating riots in London.

Bratton confirmed Friday that he is in talks with the British government to become consultant to Scotland Yard.

Bratton, who received a call from Cameron himself, says he loves London and has worked with British police for years.

He says he is working to formalize an agreement.

Bratton left the LAPD two years ago.

He’s currently an executive at a private security firm.

    ROFL you think your going to fix your riots with him yah right… Why don’t you just learn from the people why they are rioting so that you can try to fix what is wrong with your country. There is more then just trying to police it because if you just police it your not fixing anything.

    Bratton is a very good man, but the problem is bigger than he can solve. The fastest solution is to shoot a few rioters and then cut off welfare. Welfare slaves will always envy the success of people who work. Teach them to be successful. Many people, myself included, started with nothing and worked our way to success. You can’t be successful if you don’t think past your next welfare check.

    I do not even know how I stopped up right here, but I believed this submit used to be great. I do not recognise who you’re but certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger when you aren’t already. Cheers!
