It’s been a troubling time for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, as a gunman recently shot two deputies point-blank while on patrol. Later deputies arrested a local reporter in front of the hospital while covering a protest stemming from the shooting. Members of the Oversight Commission have also called for Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s resignation. SoCal in 17 host Alex Cohen sits down to discuss the latest developments with Ron Hernandez, president of the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, the union representing rank-and-file deputies.
Producer Esther Lee then joins to share a harrowing moment on the job.
