Sheriff Baca Accepts Blame for Deputy Jail Violence

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca took full responsibility for a county report that blamed a failure of leadership for violence in local jails. Baca says he accepts all recommendations that were delivered last week by the Citizen’s Commission on Jail Violence. The report found that management often ignored complaints about deputies who used inappropriate or excessive force against inmates. Pacifica KPFK’s Ernesto Arce has more from Los Angeles.
