FBI Agent: LA County Jail Deputies Forced Inmates to Fight While Being Filmed

The federal investigation of the Los Angeles County jails involved “dozens, if not hundreds” of allegations of violence at the hands of deputies, an FBI agent testified Wednesday. The Los Angeles Times reports that inmates claimed they were assaulted by guards and were forced to fight, sometimes while being filmed.

FBI Special Agent David Dahle acknowledged the claims would be difficult to corroborate since the witnesses are inmates.

“When your main victims are inmates and potentially the defendants are law enforcement, it’s difficult to prove those cases when your victims are seen by many as inherently untrustworthy,” he said.

The trial includes six sheriff’s deputies accused of obstruction of justice and conspiracy charges.
