    Los Angeles County's sheriff has revealed that he has only spoken to the county's new reform-minded district attorney once since he took office as he warns that criminals believe they will face no consequences under his tenure. Sheriff Alex Villanueva is an outspoken critic of DA George Gascón, who won his seat this past fall on a reform agenda that Villanueva says gives comfort to criminals and shortchanges victims. Villanueva is increasingly concerned with whether Gascón will fully prosecute any violent protesters as the city braces for possible demonstrations in the wake of the police-involved deaths of Daunte Wright in Minneapolis, 13-year-old Adam Toledo in Chicago and the pending verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the officer involved in George Floyd's death. 'If there is a lack of prosecutorial fist, that might actually embolden some of our antifa, anarchist crowd, the radical elements, to try to hijack peaceful protest for their own personal gain or agendas', Villanueva said in an appearance on Fox 11 LA in which he said he's had only one phone call with Gascón since he took...

    Santa Clara County officials have called on the Sheriff’s Office to explore various use-of-force reforms, such as limiting the use of tear gas and rubber bullets and not hiring officers with a history of excessive force complaints. After a unanimous vote from the Board of Supervisors, the office must analyze the reforms this summer and report back in August. Aside from potential changes to use of projectiles and hiring practices, the office must make public a list of all armaments now owned by the county, consider limiting the acquisition of military-grade equipment and restructuring emergency responses for mental health-related calls. “It is important that this be the beginning, not the end of the commitment.
