Supervisor Hahn Expresses Concerns over Sheriff’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission
Los Angeles, CA—Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn has released the following statement expressing her concern about the reported makeup of Sheriff Villanueva’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission which is charged with judging whether fired deputies should be reinstated. The commission reportedly is made up of three men and no women, all answerable to the Sheriff.
“The makeup of this so-called “Truth and Reconciliation” commission raises red flags about its legitimacy and ability to be fair. I have a real problem with a commission made up of three men who think credible accusations of stalking and attempts to break into an ex-girlfriend’s home are not fireable offenses.
This fight to reinstate an abusive deputy to the force is eroding public trust and distracting from the important issues this department should be working on. This is an unfortunate start to the new Sheriff’s term and I hope he will reconsider this ill-advised decision.”
