SF Sheriff Deputies Face Charges for "Fight Club"

Two current and one former San Francisco sheriff's deputies were charged this morning with a total of 25 crimes related to forcing county jail inmates to fight one another for food. The charges include Assault by Officer under Color of Authority, criminal threats and cruel and unusual punishment of a prisoner. The charges come nearly a year after the March 5 and 6th fights that lead to a joint investigation by the FBI Public Corruption Task Force and the District Attorney's investigation division. Pacifica's Mike Kohn files this report.
