Can LA Supervisors Get a Handle on LA County Jails?

Hosted by

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.
