Nice work on the exposes surrounding the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Noteworthy also is the piss-poor performance of Sheriff Mike Carona in the aftermath of the Katrina hurricane. When Sacramento called him to see about providing beds for evacuees, 10,000 were needed statewide. Carona played phone tag with other county officials for two days, and by the time he got back to Sacramento, other California officials had dealt with the issue. What a hero.
