FROM THIS EPISODE

LA Supervisors have voted unanimously to investigate continuing reports of brutality by Sheriff's deputies guarding inmates in LA County jails. But the Sheriff is an elected official and the Board lacks the authority to force reforms. We hear from Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, Sheriff Lee Baca and the top lawyer from the ACLU, of Southern California who has criticized both the Board and the Sheriff for looking the other way. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, is the Republican Party losing its cool?

Main Topic Can LA Supervisors Get a Handle on LA County Jails? 26 MIN, 20 SEC

LA County Supervisors have stepped into the controversy over brutality by deputies against inmates in Sheriff Lee Baca's County jails. The ACLU has reported numerous incidents of violence, intimidation and excessive force, backed by civilian witnesses.  The Board is asking the Sheriff to implement specific recommendations made by a Special Counsel and the Office of Independent Review. It'll appoint a seven-person commission and provide it with staff to investigate and make new recommendations.
