L.A. WATCHDOG GROUP WANT SHERIFF’S JOB

Group Demands LA County Sheriff Resign

Members of the Los Angeles County police watchdog group on Thursday called for Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s resignation,

Over his department’s lack of transparency on fatal police shootings and other issues,

marking the latest escalation in a power struggle between county officials and the increasingly combative law enforcement leader.

Villanueva has repeatedly clashed with the LA County Civilian Oversight Commission and the county Board of Supervisors over budgetary issues,

The availability of officer-worn cameras and over the sheriff’s decision to rehire officers who were previously fired for misconduct.

The COC voted in May to sue Villanueva after he defied their subpoena to testify on measures to protect incarcerated people against Covid-19 infection in county jails.

The case is pending in LA County Superior Court.

Civilian Oversight Commissioners have also pressed Villanueva to seriously clamp down on secret deputy gangs within the ranks of the LA County Sheriff’s Department.

Villanueva is investigating instances of LASD gang member violence but has also downplayed the issue as a normal element of society,

And one he’ll only shut down if gangs mistreat or kill members of the public or the department.

Commissioners have also slammed Villanueva’s refusal to cooperate with county Inspector General Max Huntsman on fatal police shooting probes,

Especially ones where LASD gangs are alleged to have been involved, such as the shooting of 18-year-old Andres Guardado in June.

  1. SNAFU; Since Parker was LAPD Chief nothing has changed. The pols want control because that’s POWER. The Chief and Sheriff of the respective departments wanted to enforce the law. The liberal civilians and L.A. Times want law enforcement subservient to them.( A hell of a political tool.) Now L.A. has Gascon back in town after he messed up the SF Sheriff’s department and the DAs.

watcha gotta say?
