Diane Goldstein spent over 20 years as a police officer, retiring as a lieutenant, and now her mission is to end the bureaucracy, prohibition and moralizing that has led to corruption, police brutality, militarization and death. She joins The Tatiana Show on this episode to talk about a variety of subjects including how the public has unrealistic expectations of police officers, how the drug war has led to agency overreach, police use of military equipment, the Breonna Taylor case and what the police did wrong, COVID-19 and how government regulations make anti-police sentiment worse, the riots and looting that have sprung up alongside the Black Lives Matter movement, and how civil asset forfeiture and punitive ticketing artificially props up bad policing.
Ret. Lt. Goldstein currently serves as chairperson of the Law Enforcement Action Partnership, a civil action group dedicated to organizing members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities in support of criminal justice reform, decriminalization, and redirecting of police funding to fighting real crime and providing true community engagement & protection.

About the Guest:
Diane Goldstein joined the Redondo Beach Police Department in 1983. She rose from a Patrol Officer and School Resource Officer to Sergeant in the Special Investigations Unit, served as a Division Commander, and retired as a lieutenant in 2004. She was the first female lieutenant in the department.
Goldstein came to oppose prohibition through the tragic loss of a close family member who couldn't get the help he needed because the justice system is inadequately designed to help people struggling with mental health and addiction issues.
Goldstein coordinated multiple agencies in probation and parole searches and became a specialist in juvenile crime prevention, gang intervention, and a recognized leader in crisis management. She also developed national training guidelines and policies for use during critical incidents. A founding member of the California Association of Hostage Negotiators, Goldstein received that organization's Honorary Life Member Award, and earned the Herman Goldstein Excellence in Problem Solving Team Award (Honorary Mention) for her work with a gang interdiction task force.
