    • Speaking of the Sheriff, tomorrow is the day he is being forced to testify about deputy gangs under oath (LAT)
    • Still speaking of the Sheriff, KFI posted that truly awful crime montage video Villanueva threatened to release as part of his fearmongery saber-rattling at Metro because of course they did (Alissa Walker tweet). Rather than link to the abhorrent video, we will supply the supposed (and, ahem, highly unlikely) sentiments from an anonymous officer who reportedly told KFI that "he remembered years ago when the biggest concerns they had on the Metro was loud music and the occasional smoker." We will also remind you that Sheriff candidates continue to complain that KFI is violating election and broadcasting rules by allowing Villanueva to continue with his weekly show.
