When the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Department of Justice took-on Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, it sent a message that everyone, no matter how bulletproof they think they are, is fair game.
You knew it would only be a matter of time before San Bernardino County would fall under the microscope.
Confidential sources say three San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies were walked off at West Valley Detention Center last week, for handcuffing inmates to a fence and beating and drive stunning them with their taser weapons. The three deputies are now claiming misconduct on 8 to 10 other deputies assigned to the West Valley Detention Center, most of whom are new and have graduated the academy witthin the past three months.
Sources also say the Federal Bureau of Investigation may be possibly overseeing this investigation.
Also, three more deputies were walked off the newly named High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto. The deputies are alleged to have supposedly opened tray doors on certain inmate cells, and spraying bursts of pepper spray inside their cells and then shutting the tray door.
Who is responsible for hiring these people?
Is this a sympton of deputies, with little to no experience, acting as Tactical Training Officers in the Academy training?
With the state paying the bill for the High Desert Detention Center, one has to wonder what they will think.
This newly alleged incident, if proven true after investigation, raises further questions as to competencey of management.
There must be a reason the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) recently announced the opening of an Inland field office.
