Baca Backs Brown
-Sheriff Lee Baca, a Republican, has endorsed Jerry Brown for Governor of California. "Jerry Brown has championed the rights of crime victims, toughened criminal penalties and developed innovative crime-fighting technologies,” Baca said in the statement. “Jerry Brown has always stood with me and my deputies and I am proud to stand with him in his campaign for governor.”
-Sheriff Baca is also speaking about the 21,000 illegal immigrants he has handed over to the Feds since becoming top county cop. "The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, in conjunction with ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and our county jails, have interviewed 52,591 people in our jail system arrested for crimes from murder to drunk driving."
