In your headline news about the LA County Sheriff deputy comment, the picture of the law enforcement officer is an LAPD officer not LASD officer.
Take one in the chest? The L. A. County Sheriff’s are a joke. They have their cliques and do drugs plus drink heavily and drive. I have been witness to this. From securing drugs for some to knowing how they drink heavily and drive. It’s true. They also feel they’re above the law. The feds should watch them like a hawk. If they do the bad ones will get caught. But they will not be prosecuted just as the rich are not. These actions run in every part of society. It’s not only cops. It’s politicians, doctor’s, teachers, workers and many jobs you would not think these actions taken place. Our society is scourged with these problems. Even soldiers in war drink and do drugs. No one is safe or secluded from this scourge of poison. Some just take longer to get caught. And for most it is to late when they are caught, the damage is done.
They cant get the agency correct
GOD BLESS ALL LEO’s
This terrible misinformation. Crenshaw is part of Los Angeles City, therefore the Sheriff’s don’t even patrol that area. The person pictured isn’t even a Sheriff’s deputy. That would be LAPD. This moronic rapper can’t even get basic info right and it’s quite sad that you guys at LA TACO even ran with this fake story.
did you see the video?
