Never Again by Bill Weiss

Never Again – A Double Book Awards Winner!

By Bill Weiss

“Never Again”, a true account and never-before-told insight into the 1992 Los Angeles riots, was just chosen (November 2016) as a double winner in the 2016 Beverly Hills Book Awards for best book (True Crime) and best book cover design (Non-Fiction).

The story, authored by Bill C. Weiss, focuses on the hours leading up to, during, and after the Los Angeles riots erupted on April 29, 1992. It also deals with the emergent preparations and tough decisions a watch commander for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department faced while preparing Lennox Sheriff’s Station in South Los Angeles to intervene, as the Los Angeles Police Department is thrust into the limelight and finding it is totally unprepared to deal with this deadly and dynamic crisis.

Detail by detail, the story illustrates how close the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was to potentially changing the course of history as the watch commander copes with his internal instinct to take action, waged against his self-discipline to follow orders. It leads up to the moment he is ready to put his daring plan into action.

To this day, the recollection of these events produces internal guilt. Something lost still lingers within him as the watch commander struggles to come to terms with what could have been.

As several recent incidents in Ferguson, Missouri (2014), Baltimore, Maryland (2015), and numerous incidents in 2016 have shown, how law enforcement responds to and handles violent encounters and civil disturbances continues to resonate with the entire nation.

The book is also an excellent read for young adult and teenage readers as it was written to educate and connect with those who are too young to have experienced the 1992 Los Angeles riots. A historical reference section in the book contains significant events and incidents before, during, and after this time period. The story connects with many of the current events that we face today.

Bill Weiss was a fairly new patrol sergeant with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in April of 1992, and was promoted only 20 months earlier to that rank. He was the acting watch commander of a patrol station, a position customarily held normally by a tenured lieutenant, during the initial hours of the most violent and destructive civil disturbance in the United States in the last century.

Never Again is a true account of this never-before-told insight into the hours leading up to, during, and after the Los Angeles Riots erupted on April 29, 1992. The story reveals the emergent preparations and tough decisions Weiss faced while preparing Lennox Sheriff’s Station in South Los Angeles to handle this unbelievable event.

Drawing upon his training and experience, Weiss reveals the sequence of events behind the scenes as another nearby major law enforcement agency is thrust into the limelight, finding itself totally unprepared to deal with this deadly and rapidly evolving crisis.

Never Again shows, detail by detail, how close Weiss was to potentially changing the course of history. In those initial hours of turmoil, Weiss struggled against his trained self-discipline of a law enforcement official following orders and with an instinctual drive to take action. In the moment of crisis, he must deal with a commanding officer in opposition to his daring plan of action. To this day, he feels a surge of regret at the recollection of these events. A moment that could have changed the outcomes that rocked Los Angeles was lost. Viewing newspaper articles and photos, hearing personal stories and media reports, he still struggles to come to terms with what could have been.

A 32-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Bill Weiss worked various patrol, custody, administrative, investigative, and special assignments during his career.

Weiss was an incident commander for several major tactical incidents throughout the years. He is a graduate of the University of Southern California, with a Master’s degree in Public Administration. Weiss is a contributing author in a section titled, A Lingering Guilt, in the recently published book, Writer to Writer. Since retiring as a lieutenant in January of 2013, he continues to reside in California.
