Well, I was speaking in general, assuming today's LAPD is not corrupt. 
Obviously, I can't be sure that's a valid assumption. :-)

Studios influencing investigations has been a theme in movies, of 
course, but I'm not sure if any real cases of corruption involving the 
studios have ever occurred. (I know there have been corruption 
investigations before, including the notorious Ramparts case from 
several years back.) I don't see anything involving the studios in the 
Wikipedia article on the LAPD.

Mind you, it's far from inconceivable that the studios could have done 
some shady things over the years....
