Video From Men's Central Jail in L.A. Shows Violence Against Inmates
Recently released footage from 2008 shows a cell extraction procedure of 20 inmates from Men's Central Jail in Los Angeles. The deputies involved used tasers and force to remove the inmates from single-man cells after the inmates refused to cooperate with orders in protest over previous alleged beatings. Sheriff’s officials said the protesting inmates broke toilets and sinks and flooded their cells. Four teams were formed to forcibly extract each inmate from the cells over six hours. Of the 20 inmates, 19 ended up hospitalized.
