Since the group the Executioners were trending, $55 million in settlements were paid by the Los Angeles County in cases where sheriff deputies allegedly involved in a secret society.
The Los Angeles Times obtained records explaining how an inner group destroyed the Sheriff’s department for a long time.
Nearly 60 cases were reported on the list with ongoing claims that have yet to be revealed. The lawsuits come at the expense of claims pertaining to forceful police tactics that could be used to prevent one from resisting.
Policing has always been a large issue since the trainings used on regular civilians are largely Army-style tactics.
Reported by James Gordon of the Dailymail “’I think it’s a willful failure,’ said John Sweeney, a lawyer who has represented families of people killed by deputies to the Times.’For some reason, they pride themselves, the Sheriff’s Department, on having these violent cliques I guess to show the public who’s the boss. But, you know, what it does is just fosters a horrible relationship between the community that these sheriffs serve.”
If the police department has an issue inside that can’t be resolved, how can they wear badges to go out in public to solve crimes when they are the very exact perpetrators of it?
