LA Sheriff's Officers Union Pushes Back against FBI Investigation

Hosted by

On Monday, 18 LA sheriff's officers were arrested and charged with federal crimes. The highest ranking were Lieutenants Gregory Thompson and Stephen Leavins. They both were part of an alleged conspiracy to obstruct an FBI investigation of county jails. Brian Moriguchi is President of the LA County Professional Peace Officers Association, the deputies' union. He says their arrests were "some sort of message."
