The LA County Board of Supervisors selection of Orange County Sheriff Official John Scott as Interim Sheriff, reaffirms the elective body's commitment to move on with needed reforms within the LA Sheriff Department.
New LA County Interim Sheriff John Scott speaks to the media.
For once the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors did something right, and legal, behind close doors.
Scott, who rose up through the ranks of the LA County Sheriff Department before moving down the I-5 to take a top position in the Orange County counterpart, will take a leave from his current job to oversee a scandal-plague department he knows well.
The backlash against
retiring Sheriff Lee Baca's choice to replace him, former Department of Corrections Official Terri McDonald,
was an obvious factor in returning a moment of legal sanity to the closed door proceedings at the Hall of Administration. Thus, the "Four Kings (with "Renovation-Thomas" abstaining) and a Queen" should be commended for making the right decision.
