LASD

LA Sheriff’s Dept., Accused of Harassing Grieving Families, Needs New Policy, Better Complaint Process, and to Stop Fighting Oversight

In November 2019, community members grieving the loved ones killed during encounters with members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department gathered at the monthly Civilian Oversight Commission (COC) meeting to report incidents of harassment and intimidation from deputies.

Now, informed by a report from the Office of Inspector General,  the department’s civilian overseers have called on the sheriff to implement a new policy regarding the treatment of families of individuals killed by the LASD, among other actions.

Those who addressed the commission last November spoke of heavy sheriff’s department presence at funerals and memorial sites. Deputies, the speakers said, taunted those in attendance, made rude hand gestures, laughed and, in at least one instance, made arrests, as family and friends gathered to grieve together.

Many of the families had publicly protested and filed lawsuits against the department over the fatal shootings.

In response to this testimony from the families of Paul Rea, Ryan Twyman, Anthony Vargas, and others who shared similar stories of troubling behavior from members of the East LA and Century Stations, the COC voted unanimously to direct Inspector General Max Huntsman to look into the issue.

During his report back to the COC this Thursday, 13 months after the first motion, Huntsman called for a written LASD policy regarding conduct at memorial sites, as well as more “active supervision,” thorough investigation of public complaints, body-worn cameras, and for the sheriff’s department to stop fighting oversight.

In his report, Huntsman suggests that LASD officials create and adopt a policy “to ensure sensitivity toward those grieving at a memorial site and to build community trust following a fatal use of force.”

The department does not have a policy that addresses how LASD members should behave with regard to memorials and vigils honoring individuals whom officers have killed. But the department’s Code of Ethics does say that a deputy will “enforce the law courteously and appropriately, without fear or favor, malice or ill will.”

East LA and Century deputies have not been abiding by this code, according to the loved ones of Paul Rea, Ryan Twyman, and other dead young men, who addressed the COC last November and again on Thursday.

Jaylene Rea’s brother, 18-year-old Paul Rea, was fatally shot by East LA deputies during a June 2019 traffic stop.

Four months after the shooting, on the evening of Oct. 30, deputies from the East LA Station arrested Jaylene where she and other family members were gathered at the site where her brother died.

Earlier in the day, Jaylene and her family spoke about Paul’s death at a rally outside LA’s Hall of Justice, where they attempted to present the department with a lawsuit regarding public access to law enforcement records.

At around 10:45 p.m., according to Jaylene’s testimony to the COC, a patrol car bearing a deputy “making a rude hand gesture” rolled slowly past the memorial site. Half an hour later still, “several patrol cars” reportedly rolled up and proceeded to arrest two of Paul’s friends. Jaylene pulled out her cell phone and recorded the arrests.

A deputy reportedly told one of young men to put out the marijuana cigar he had been smoking. He extinguished the blunt, and then reached out to hand it to Jaylene so that officers could handcuff him. Because the officers did not try to take the weed themselves, or give any commands, Jaylene said she accepted the blunt.

It was then that the deputies also arrested Jaylene, reportedly grabbing her wrists and bending her arms upward behind her back, causing her to yell out in pain.

Once in the patrol car, Jaylene said they drove past the East LA Station. She said she kept asking the deputies where they were taking her, but they reportedly responded with answers to the effect of, “You’ll see when we get there.”

Two hours later, at around 1:00 a.m., according to Jaylene and her family, the car pulled in to the ELA Station.

Jaylene’s family did not know where she was and feared for her safety during that time, Andrés Dae Keun Kwon, Policy Counsel and Senior Organizer at the ACLU of Southern California, told the COC. Jaylene and Paul’s grandmother “had to call every hospital nearby to finally know where she was,” he said. “She’d been driven around” for two hours.

Despite the fact that Jaylene was to be cited for “obstruction” and released, she was forced to remain at the station overnight.

“My granddaughter was arrested at the exact same site [at which Paul was killed] for a petty misdemeanor,” Paul Rea’s grandmother, Irene Garcia, told the commission last year. Jaylene was forced to remain at the station “filled with deputies” overnight to wait for a deputy qualified enough to take Live Scan fingerprints, she said.

“They did not have anyone on staff who could take her fingerprints, mind you, in the largest sheriff’s department in the nation,” Dae Keun Kwon said.

When Jaylene was finally released at 7:00 a.m., she says she found the department had accessed her cell phone without permission and deleted the arrest recordings.

“What happened that day” — the same day of a rally and the filing of a lawsuit challenging the department’s failure to release public records — “came from the top,” Dae Keun Kwon said.

“Smoking marijuana in a public place is enforced in this manner much less often than it once was, and no case was filed against either of these individuals,” the OIG’s report said. “The [incident] report states that the deputies were responding to a disturbance call at a memorial site regarding ‘children running around causing a traffic hazard.’ No mention is made of any complaint about marijuana being smoked in public.”

“This arrest, transport, and lengthy detention regarding a marijuana cigarette at a memorial cite could not help but be perceived as harassment,” Huntsman wrote, “and further supports the need for a written LASD policy and active supervision to avoid similar outcomes.”

Other families reported officers attending or driving slowly by memorials and vigils, smiling, waving, making inappropriate hand gestures, and engaging in other rude acts. Families reported that officers had followed them in marked and unmarked cars, pulled them over, and otherwise treated them with malice.

Members of the LASD killed Lisa Vargas’s 21-year-old son, Anthony Vargas, who had allegedly pulled a gun from his waistband, on Aug. 12, 2018. In June 2019, an autopsy report revealed that deputies shot 11 bullets into Vargas’s body from behind.

Vargas’ uncle, his family said, was pulled over on his way to work and forced to sit in handcuffs on the sidewalk for two hours while deputies sat and ate in their patrol car.

Yet, a new policy alone will not ensure change or improve public relations with the sheriff’s department, Inspector General Huntsman said.

Members of the public expressed doubt that the sheriff would draft and uphold such a policy. We are not “holding our breath for the cooperation of the sheriff to develop this policy,” one speaker said.

Underlying problems, including failures of supervision and oversight, must be addressed, said Huntsman.

The county has a sheriff who, Huntsman and the members of the COC have noted, often refuses to comply with oversight, and whose department — like most law enforcement agencies — rarely upholds public complaints. Several members of the public who signed up to address the COC on Thursday pointed out that the sheriff also recently gave deputies explicit permission to conceal their name tags when policing protests.

When families feel that they have been mistreated by members of the LASD, their first recourse is to file a complaint with the department.

In the course of his investigation, Huntsman looked at 690 complaints against the LASD involving 16 stations and two special units that had at least one fatal shooting between February 1, 2018, and November 30, 2019.

“The purpose of this review was to assess whether there were any complaints to LASD involving the allegation of harassment of families whose relatives have been killed in a deputy involved shooting and to ascertain if this practice was systemic throughout the Department or at any particular station,” according to the report.

A total of 112 of the cases (16 percent) involved an allegation of some form of harassment from department members.

Of the 690 complaints, nine cases were referred for an administrative investigation, and one case was referred for an internal criminal investigation. That means that just one percent of complaints had the potential for an outcome involving discipline.

“The very low possibility that public complaints will lead to any discipline for misconduct,” said the report, “contributed to a lack of public trust when it comes to LASD investigating its own personnel.”

Huntsman said that complaint investigations must be more thorough. Many complaints were misclassified, a problem that “can lead to masking systemic issues.”

“The adoption of policies and training to ensure that all complaints are classified properly should be undertaken.”

Additionally, Huntsman called for the department to seek out “any available video evidence of the conduct described in the complaint.” In the course of investigating two alleged harassment incidents, LASD investigators failed to obtain surveillance footage that might have offered more concrete evidence in the cases.

(The department has been extremely slow, years behind other large departments, in getting body-worn cameras on its deputies.)

“The similarity in complaints involving inappropriate facial expressions by deputies when dealing with family members of the deceased, the perception of an increased LASD presence in the areas of the shooting and where family members live, and complaints about LASD stopping or investigating family members,” wrote Huntsman, “support the need for policy reform and body-worn cameras.”

Public speakers called for an independent complaint system.

According to the ACLU, “due to great mistrust of the LASD those who are complaining of harassment do not wish to go directly to the Department.” Many involved would rather Huntsman’s office conduct an independent investigation.

In his report, Huntsman said that he “does not believe an effective independent investigation can be conducted under the current approach to oversight taken by the LASD,” which generally works to block the oversight efforts of the OIG and COC.

“We hope that LASD will in the future make greater use of community advocates and the Office of Inspector General in establishing a better relationship with complainants in order to obtain more evidence upon which to base its decisions,” the report said.

“Our communities continue to demand an independent system in which we can submit our grievances” regarding “the continued harassment, violence, and criminalization being endured by our families at the hands of sheriff’s deputies,” a member of the public told the COC on Thursday. “We continue to ask for an independent public platform in which we may submit our grievances and similarly impacted families would also be able to search and learn from shared experiences of others. We need to bring these cases to light, and it is not being accomplished by the insular procedures of the OIG and LASD.”

“Our system,” the inspector general said, “is set up in a way that causes racism.”

“Our system is set up to trust the police wholeheartedly,” said Huntsman. Because the sheriff’s department bucks oversight, members of the public “are left [to seek out] their own personal remedies.”

So, they “can go to court and seek an injunction, but they have to prove a very high burden because the police are trusted in our society, by law.”

“In any other context, intimidation and harassment of family members and witnesses would be a crime” for which “individuals would be able to go to court and get a restraining order,” said Commissioner Priscilla Ocen.

There have been many lawsuits against the department, and in some cases, people can get redress after fighting for a number of years, Ocen said, “but it doesn’t fix the overall problem.”

Within the sheriff’s department, the inspector general said, “there is a failure to comply with a bunch of rules about oversight and control of police.”

“I was just asked by the county to look at a bill that’s been introduced by the legislature that would tighten up some of the penalties” when law enforcement officers engage in serious misconduct,” said Huntsman. “And as I read it, my first reaction was this bill is, is not going to be effective because it does nothing to improve the system of finding whether or not the conduct occurred.”

“And that’s the fundamental problem with police policing themselves,” he said.

“I think we, as a group, need to fully support and advocate for … the county taking a legal approach to forcing the sheriff to actually comply with the oversight rules.”

Huntsman said that he had sent a report of “unlawful conduct by the sheriff’s department,” to the commissioners, to the District Attorney’s Office, to the CA Attorney General’s Office, and to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“I hope that they will look at it closely and we’ll be partners in trying to come up with a solution to compel the sheriff to comply with these laws,” said Huntsman. “If the sheriffs starts to actually comply completely with these laws, then I think we’ll be in a position to actually investigate allegations.”

“We will not have the authority to impose discipline or to force discipline,” he said. “But I think at the systemic level, we would have the ability to force the sheriff’s department to reform some of these things.”

  • The worst dept…I love that working in the entertainment industry. When I expose this dept….Haaaaaa, soviety is going to flip bc they will know the truthAll u lasd guys only know law enforcement according to my tech advisor so I seriously hope you have been on your best behavior when you go looking for a new dept. to work for!!! hahahahahaha (oh and when I said best behavior I mean like not beating up inmates bc they hurt ur feelings by not being on their bunks on the night shift or raping female inmates or writing false reports etc. u know standard lasd foulness!! hehehee

  • What shouldn’t be ignored is that the families of suspects killed by deputies are very likely cut from the same cloth as their dead family members. To expect any different is to reject reality. Any outreach to the families is for naught, anyway. In 100% of these cases, the families will sue for damages, whether or not they even associated with the dead suspect in recent times. They will trump up extra allegations just to juice up their cases.

    • Such a typical speculative response enunciated with a broad brush.

      Accountability and transparency goes a long way in lieu of excuses lined with deflection.

      • “…typical speculative broad brush” describes exactly how all members of law enforcement are routinely caste and grouped into one large homogenous mass of thought and action.

        Judging individuals as just that, individuals would go a long way in bringing about understanding and trust.

      • Why not give a speculative response enunciated with a broad brush? When that’s exactly what the original story does in spades. Or do you take criminal’s families serious when they come up with theories regarding law enforcement motives and the legality of procedures? To say nothing of huntsman, a political hack fighting to protect his turf.

  • Good.
    A Denver watchdog!
    Another liberal $hithole sending their trash our way.
    These recent developments will kill people in the inner city.
    Great job Taylor.
    Those dead bodies are on your hands.

  • Lasd accused of harassing grieving families? Hell the Dept has been harassing so called whistle blowers or employees that raise the flag when they are being mistreated by coworkers or supervisors. Let’s start there.

  • The vast majority of complaints filed against law enforcement are frivolous. I suspect the LASD complaint process compares favorably, as to accountability, against other larger police agency complaint processes. It clear reading this report Mr. Huntsman has lost his objectivity. The report seems almost petty.

    As the the families as friends of the deceased, what is reasonable for a memorial service. If the death occurred in a public space, a bunch of people standing around drinking beer and smoking joints would likely result in a police response.

  • @HMM, totally agree.

    @2 Legit 2 Quit, valid point

    @ Seeking the truth, ironic how LASD wanted and needed Huntsman culminating with the Tanaka trail.
    You have to accept the truth from whoever delivers it. It could be worse with the Feds crawling up LASD’S butt.

  • I could care less about their families, why would I? Think they care about any wounded or dead Blue? We don’t kill enough bad guys as it is, everyone knows it, the good people in the poorest of our neighborhoods do for a certainty. By the way, they’ve shot up plenty of their own funerals and memorial services and they’re bitchin about Deps? That’s pretty funny.

    • If you are still in the field, get out now. Courts, jails, a specialized assignment if you can get one. As little contact with the public as possible. And Barney, stop commenting. You sound ridiculous.

    • give a damn about wounded or dead badges period and what?!?! but u dont care about dead or injured civilian’s…the fuq u got the badge for loser?!?!?

  • That “Free Speech” thing really irritates you little snowflakes doesn’t it? Look little fella, I want you to do this for me. Give me your cell number. Next time I have to do a death notification, trust me it will be soon, I’ll call you. Have to be one from a murder, again it will be soon. It has to be gang related, odds are another gang member but maybe not. If not but killed by a gangster scum, that’s never fun.

    You can do the notification and we’ll see how you handle it, I’ve done enough. I feign that I care, I never do if it’s a gangster, not ever, but I act like I care. Sure some parent lost their kid, but if the kid was a gangster out running around with a gun, his trip to the grave is on him. But, unless they act like idiots, I’m always professional and sympathetic to family.

    So give up that number, I will ring you up. My partner, who rides with me is a female, she’ll be good with it I’m sure. But, she’s way worse than me.
    Have a nice Christmas.

  • Yes, I’ll be sure to give you my cell phone # so you can regale me with more of your “the death these tired eyes have seen” routine.

    Your pathetic justification for your dehumanizing comments “We don’t kill enough”, your use of “They’ve shot up plenty of their own funerals” – you’ve reached the point where it’s just us on our side and “them” on their side.

    So, “snowflake”, like I said, get outta patrol. You don’t belong there anymore, if you ever did tough guy. And by the way, your contempt for “those people” comes through loud and clear, you’re not that great an actor.

    • Really?,

      You’ve missed Fife’s point completely. You got the “us” and “them” right, but what you’re missing are the people that we keep from being overrun by “them.” That’s where the Thin Blue Line comes into play. It’s real, and I’m sure you revile the very notions of it – right up until the time you are victimized and are on the phone to 9-1-1, screaming for the police to hurry up and get there.

      Since you brought up funerals, Fife was right again. Don’t be anywhere near a gang funeral if you don’t want to get shot by errant gunfire. I’m not sure which is more dangerous, a quinceañera or a gang funeral.

      • Where the hell did I bring up funerals? I was quoting Barney himself, he’s the one who brought it up. Presumably, like you, to stand for the proposition that warring gangs shooting at each other justifies…what, exactly? Maybe you can clarify his point. He lost me at somehow that’s supposed to be relevant to the point of this story somehow?

        Thanks for the lecture on the thin blue line, really. I guess you think anyone appalled at people saying “we don’t kill enough bad guys” must be a civilian. There’s a sizeable contingent of us (no one’s done any quantitative analysis but I suspect more than you or Barney would be comfortable with) that wear a badge but try not to thing in terms of “cops good, everyone else bad”. The world’s a bit more complex than that, and it was Barney’s simplistic post to the contrary that I was calling out.

    • Ha! Responding to woke nonsense on this liberal blog gets old. Really? isn’t worth any effort at all. A little pseudo-intellectual garbage spouted by the two or three people who post under many different names here, and you’re impressed? That’s particularly sad.

    • No I didn’t and here’s reality for you dimwitted kids. Day before yesterday in a town in the Inland Empire there was a Memorial Service for a thug gangster and who shows up, rival gangsters who commence to do a drive-by, just the thing I was talking about.
      Now neither of these gang of low life pond scum are from this town, or even this county, nope they are L.A. County gangsters, are guys. We couldn’t be more proud could we?
      So the cops show up, casings all over the place, blood all over the street, but of course, gangsters who drove by are gone and gangsters having the service just MF them, including family members and others and they get no help from anyone.
      “We didn’t see nothing, nobody got shot, what blood?”
      So the local PD, where my buddy works does what they can, ends their little send off for their homie and off they go.
      I realize this is lost on all you gangster cheerleaders and cop haters but this is not something that is all that unique in our world and like I said. I could care less about any of these people, not ever. They could all die and I wouldn’t blink on eye same as they wouldn’t when we do. Isn’t it great how L.A. exports it gang violence to so many other places, we should be so proud.
      Got it now Snowflakes?

      • You got called out for writing some ridiculous comment that we don’t kill enough bad guys. It was dumb, juvenile, and exactly what I expect from a guy who’s insecure and probably spends most of his shift overcompensating and fronting for his partners.

        That statement alone is enough to show you don’t belong in patrol anymore, if you ever did. Which is why I told you to get out. You try to respond to this by talking about gangsters doing gangster stuff, as if that somehow makes it ok to say we need to kill more folks. You can try to spin it any way you want, call people snowflakes all you want, and it’s not going to change that your simplistic view of the world makes you unqualified to work out there with the people you so despise.

        We’re done Barney, you really aren’t worth the time. Get back to me when you grow up tough guy.

        • Look, I believe everything I write, you’re the shill ok with mostly poc’s getting killed like they’re targets in a penny arcade at some carnival. You’ve done nothing compared to me and those like me, stfu. You never will.
          This year, 84 more murders in L.A. compared to last year and most victims sure don’t look like me, neither do the suspects and that’s the same tune all across this nation. How much have we read about that travesty here?
          You got no standing on this issue, none. STFU and don’t respond to me you ignorant snowflake. Don’t worry, we’ll keep handling the shit you hide from, you ladies keep watching thinking you’re safe…thinking.

          • Such a angry Snowman,
            you’ll never get further than rolling from call to call in between citizen complaints and internal investigations against you. Lol

    • This lawsuit is weak. Carlos Parga all of sudden is some beacon of morality. Give me a break. He is mad because he sold out when McDonnell was in charge, drank the juice and did people (deputies, sergeant and other lieutenants) dirty. It caught up with him and now he wants to cry foul because he didn’t make captain. Common wolfie, that is weak…….

      • “It caught up with him and now he wants to cry foul because he didn’t make captain.”

        Out in the boondocks promotions are based on written/oral exams administered by P.O.S.T. and promotees are selected by the Sheriff from among the top three scorers.

        The Oral Examination boards are composed of Law Enforcement managers from outside the affected county to ensure impartiality.

        Seems like a better system than what L.A. County has.

        • @Rakkasan
          No argument from me, sounds like a much better system. Under that system, the person that filed the lawsuit would for sure not get promoted. Under our current system he would have got promoted by McDonnell for suck butting but when Villanueva won, his juice was over.

          • You are saying that promotions are based on “suck butting” whoever is Sheriff.

            “Suck butt” one Sheriff, you get promoted; another Sheriff, nope.

            Before LASD I remember an examination booklet in another agency out in the boondocks imprinted with the heading “State of California, Co-Operative Personnel Services….”

            “Suck butting” disallowed.

            Out in the boondocks.

      • Allie: Sweet pea I just read on WLA some guy named And1 brought up the Tim’s lawsuit.
        Sweet Pea: Those haters keep posting this bad stuff about us. F*&K those haters.
        Carl M: Ya Alex Fuck those putos Bro.
        Sweet Pea: Ya both Norma and Brittany comment on all my FB posts about on Alvin and God.
        Allie: Those all the same guys who received the letter” Your services are no longer required”.
        Carl M: Alex you want to take care of those guys. I can talk to my uncles.
        Allie: What did I tell you the last time you brought this shit up Carl.
        Carl M: Yes but those Mother F*&$$S.
        Sweet Pea: LOL

  • Hey Celeste, I have a simple question. Still Laughing made a comment to a post I made. I wasn’t given the option to “reply” to them. Why was that option not there? Not the first time I’ve seen this. Can I use it?
    Thanks.

    Oh, Still Confused, no pending I.A.’s and never bit even one day off, not one. I’m so good at knowing how far to go. Keep spinning girl.

  • I sure do miss Santa’s posts on this blog. Santa, please come back. We need a Merry Christmas post to help us laugh at what this AV Clown Show has done to our beloved LASD in only two years. Especially during this 2020 disaster of a year.

    Allie, Sweat Pea, Mr. Magoorakami and the rest of the Skippers have been in rare, some would say unprecedented, form this year.

    Come on Santa, bring all of us good kids some entertaining musings from your Elves.

  • Numbnuts running this shit show from his secure location in Monterey Park. How quickly do you think your INFORMANTS would change to WITNESSES? your other half may help you out if you feel lost!

  • And your use of P.I’s is no news by the way. One example would be special agent “Batshit” over in commerce etc…..these tactics are years in the making numbnuts!!

  • I recall listening to some piece of shit mumble “He knows better than that” amazing how a shitbag like this would bump his gums in this manner, considering the idiots sloppiness..

    You know better than that shit show crew!! how many years of service? You really believe being in your “R.D” was going to give u an advantage? or being close to it? your the same fucking disaster u were before u started playing ” i’m in fucking charge” numbnuts!! And i’ll add that it was self inflicted….. have a great day!!

  • Does anybody know if “ALADS” is accepting employment applications? and if one would apply directly or an “employment agency?” less obvious right?? wouldn’t want to use unfair employment practices and folks crying its all about who you know, back door etc…..

  • Not an abundance of commentary lately! a few here and there would definitely make one feel that their comments are not being redirected elsewhere. With the geek squad on high alert one never knows. those “Wazu” computers at the Hall, Corporate Center Drive or Monterey Park HQ or neighborhood. phones, routers …….etc.

    • Be advised, the enablers (ALADS) are also headquartered in Monterey Park.

      The big question is, will ALADS leadership change within 90 days or will Ron Hernandez ride out the storm that he financed with no refund and a void guarantee, time will tell.

      • Copy that “info only” i knew they were. they probably creep around by the “Business” windows with their flash lights as they observe people jog up and down “Corporate Center Dr” for a little workout.. Stealth mode right peeps?

        • if u walk around inside a dark building. U bunch of numbnuts should know that flickering flashlights inside will probably be visible from the exterior!!! and parking really close to the building is probably just as fucking ridiculous… just saying

  • @ S1 of 1. I like your handle for starters, but do you think you can help a fella out here? You’ve put up 48 hours’ worth of ramblings and I have no idea what you’re talking about. You probably have something impactful to say given your level of emotion and conviction but we’d never know it by the endless string of metaphors you’ve put together. The best I can tell is you take umbrage with AV working out of Monterey Park and he lacks the ability to clear a building undetected. And something about parking tactics.

    Let us in on the secret, man.

  • @Eldon, you are absolutely right. AV does lack the ability to clear Monterey Park undetected because he leaves a clusterfuck trail behind him.

    • Allie Boy:

      Oh, Allie Boy, the Feds, the Feds are calling

      From the Hall of Justice to ELA, and down to CPT,

      The morale’s gone, and all the skippers falling,

      It’s you, it’s you must go and I must smile.

      But come ye back when your time’s up in the Federal Penn,

      Or when you and Bibi, and the skippers finish your sentencing time

      not a soul’s going to be there to greet you, not even Carl Caren Mandoyan or JP Murphy,

      Oh, Allie Boy, oh Allie Boy, I predicted you so!

  • The fact that the Feds are actively investigating this regime is welcomed news. Too many inked clique members and sympathizers in positions of power. Another historical LASD Fed “reset” is desperately needed and true transparency welcomed. 2021 and 2022 will be interesting.
