LA Sheriff’s Department Union Tries Out Some Media Criticism

LA Times journo Robert Faturechi tweets some choice passages from the most recent Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department newsletter–reacting to the Times‘ and your humble Fishie’s recent stories about inmate abuse and supervisory incompetence inside the Sheriff’s Department.

Or am I just small potatoes not worth mentioning?

The LA Justice Report is launching the third part of its investigation next week.
