FROM THIS EPISODE

Six LA Sheriff’s deputies were sentenced to years in prison today for obstructing an FBI investigation into abuse of inmates in County jail. The judge found no evidence they were following orders. Does that mean higher-ups are off the hook?

Also, LA Mayor Garcetti says he is speeding up the process for solar power on private homes. But residents still have to wait months after units have been installed before the Department of Water and Power allows them to be turned on.
