Investigators Condemn Sheriff Brass in Jail Abuse Probe

Hosted by

A group of high-powered lawyers working for free has delivered a scathing report about top Sheriff's officials not just tolerating, but encouraging, excessive violence against inmates in County jails. The big question is whether the Sheriff will implement or ignore upcoming recommendations for reforms. Also, three people have now died from hantavirus in Yosemite National Park, which failed to warn visitors of the danger despite requests from state public health officials. Some 22,000 people might have been exposed. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Republicans, Democrats and "the Middle Class."
