Brickbat: Gang Squad


In a letter to Sheriff Alex Villanueva, Los Angeles County Inspector General Max Hunstman claimed his office has compiled a list of 41 deputies who are members  of "gang-like" organizations, including the Banditos and the Executioners. The letter did not name any of the deputies. In a statement, the sheriff's department said Huntsman "failed to provide any actual evidence or new information." "This is another irresponsible attempt from Mr. Huntsman to discredit the organization, through omission and misrepresentation," the statement said.
