Deputies at L.A. County Sheriff's Office Say Racist Gangs Run the Department

Deputies at L.A. County Sheriff's Office Say Racist Gangs Run the Department | Your Black World
Deputies at an L.A. County Sheriff’s Office are claiming that their bosses are members of white supremacist gangs who have subverted at least one FBI investigation. According to the deputies, law enforcement officers have even gone so far as to hide a suspect from the FBI out of their allegiance to a white supremacist group. Two L.A. County deputies have filed a lawsuit claiming that their department is a hotbed for white supremacists and that members of the department covered up a crime involving a skinhead. “An inappropriate relationship exists between certain LASD personnel and various inmate jail gangs, especially white supremacist,” read the complaint filed by deputies Michael Rathbun and James Sexton. “LASD personnel use these jail gangs as proxies or agents to retaliate against other LASD deputies and inmates. Within these inappropriate alliances, the gangs are given certain privileges that are otherwise legally precluded from them,” continued the complaint, filed in federal court against the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. Lt. Greg Thompson, who is a defendant in the suit, is allegedly a member of a racist gang called “the Vikings.” The deputies accuse the LASD of hiding an inmate “in an effort to obstruct a federal investigation.” The deputies say that in February of 2012, they learned from an informant at Operation Safe Jails (OSJ) that Deputy Joseph Britton was associated with a powerful white supremacist gang. “At all relevant times, certain members of OSJ associated with, and cooperated with, certain jail gangs, including partaking in illicit activities. Sheriff Baca and/or Undersheriff Tanaka knew or should have known about these improper relationships, but took no action to stop it and implicitly ratified the improper conduct” read the complaint. “LASD personnel, using jail gangs as their agents, labeled Rathbun and Sexton as ‘race traitors,” the complaint states. The deputies say they only came forward due to months of harassment and threats from officials.

Cop gets impatient at McDonald's, pulls his service weapon on teenager in line ahead of him

This guy should be fired and banned from owning guns. Off-Duty Cop Gets Impatient At McDonald’s, Pulls Gun On Customer – Consumerist
“[W]e were waiting on them to cook the food,” says the driver, who happens to work at that McDonald’s but was just picking up some food with friends at the time of the confrontation. “And the cop — I didn’t know at first that he was a cop — pulled up behind us and waited about two minutes, two to three minutes…. And he got out and started yelling, yelling at us, ‘Stop holding up the drive-thru line,’ this that and the other. He walked back over to his car, got back in, and I said, ‘Sorry for the inconvenience, Sir.’ And he goes, ‘Who has the loud mouth?’ And I was, like, ‘I said that,’ not being smart or anything. He’s like, ‘Well, you never know who you’re messing with.’ And I was just like, ‘No, Sir, I don’t.’ He goes, ‘Keep your mouth shut.’ I was like, ‘I’m sorry.’ He’s like, ‘Well, you don’t know who you’re messing with. And there’s some crazy people out there.’ And that’s when he pulled the gun on me, and kept on yelling at me for about thirty more seconds. And then walked off.” The 18-year-old says the detective pointed the gun at his neck while shouting things like “You don’t know who you are [expletive]-ing with,” and “You never know who you are [expletive]-ing with.” The passengers in the truck took down the license plate and noted the details of the man’s car as he drove off. One of them had noticed a badge on the gun-wielder’s belt. Along with security camera footage of the incident, this was enough for the Forsyth County Sheriff to locate the suspect, who was later identified in a photo lineup by the people in the truck that night. “We believe, right now, that it was his duty weapon, and a DeKalb-County-issued vehicle that he was in,” says the Sheriff.
