Hosted by

To reduce the overcrowding that leads to violence, LA County Sheriff Lee Baca says he’s cut the population of the Men’s Central Jail from 10,000 20 years ago to 4,175 today. But a report by the American Civil Liberties Union says it is stil “a modern-day medieval dungeon” where abuse goes unchecked and prisoners live in fear of retaliation.
