Southern California Public Radio reporter Annie Gilbertson posted an update to her recent six-part series on the mismanagement and lack of transparency by Sheriff McDonnell, who was elected four years ago on a platform of delivering precisely the opposite. In today’s update, Gilbertson reports:
- The Sheriff’s Department’s independent Office of Inspector General is looking into systemic issues around several questionable deputy involved shootings as well as in how the department mistreats its employees–and particularly those stupid enough to do proactive police work in this environment
- She reports that Bob Lindsey is mounting a strong campaign to replace McDonnell as sheriff
- And that badly mistreated Deputy Mike Coberg (like virtually all deputies) is supporting Lindsey
The Sheriff’s Department, you’ll be surprised to learn, declined to comment (with anything of substance). To hear the update, click below; to hear the full series, click here.
