Judge blocks county watchdog's investigation into deputy gangs in LA sheriff's department

Wednesday, July 12, 2023 1:47AM


LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A judge this week blocked a county watchdog's investigation into deputy gangs in the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department - at least for now.

The union for sheriff's deputies filed a lawsuit after the Office of Inspector General ordered 35 deputies suspected of being "Banditos" or "Executioners" to answer questions about deputy gangs and show their tattoos.

The judge in his ruling found that the county is required to bargain with the union before making significant changes to their employment, such as being forced to show their tattoos.

State law and criminal code supercedes a union contract.

The union should fight this as unions always do, but the independent judiciary should look at probable cause and say show your tattoos
