Stupid civilians should be paying the Sherrif's department for emotional distress. NewsMax.com Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2001 L.A. Jailed 400,000 Illegally Los Angeles County taxpayers are out $27 million because the county illegally jailed about 400,000 people over five years. County supervisors agreed Tuesday to the payment to settle five class-action lawsuits. The longtime problem of the sheriff's department in keeping prisoners in jail after courts have ordered them released is far greater than previously known, the Los Angeles Times reported today. The department, blaming clerical errors, for years has admitted that it kept hundreds and sometimes thousands of inmates past the date a judge had ordered their release. But it did not mention the thousands of other prisoners routinely held for additional days because of the time it took to process their release, the Times said. The Associated Press said some people were wrongly incarcerated because of erroneous warrants. County attorneys admit that up to half of those held illegally were strip-searched. Despite repeated alarms about the problem since the mid-1990s, a new computer system to connect the jail to the courts is not scheduled to be working until 2003, the Times said. "It's not pleasing for me to stand up in front of the county of Los Angeles and talk about a $27 million settlement in these terms," Sheriff Lee Baca said at a news conference Tuesday night. "My greatest wish is that the sheriff's department would have done the right thing when these claims were coming in and fix it."

Imbroglio, just a quick question for you...are you being sarcastic here? I know you put some outwardly appearing LEO supportive comments like;

But I have been catching an earful by expressing doubt that you are indeed sarcastic and mean the opposite of what you have said by choosing to highlight to us via news reports (none of which are written by you, and rarely rebutted as to be false) bearing accounts that cast a rather less than glamorous light upon the fine men and women of Law Enforcement if not the LE "System" in its entirety? Sorry for the silly and intrusive question, I merely ask to satisfy my curiosity. Thanks. rDAm edited 'cuz it is "indeed" early in the morning!
