Justice Carlos Moreno on LA Jail Violence

Hosted by

LA County Sheriff Lee Baca has told the Board of Supervisors his staff didn't tell him of brutal violence by deputies against inmates in county jails, including some who are mentally ill. Since the ACLU published a scathing report, the Board is creating a seven-member Citizens' Commission on Jail Violence.  So far, former federal judges Lourdes Baird and Dickran Tevrizian have been appointed, along with former State Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno.
