Long Beach PD Chief to Run for L.A. County Sheriff

January 14, 2014  | 

Six months after deciding he would not pursue Los Angeles County’s top law enforcement job, Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell announced Monday that he will indeed run for the county post, reports the Press-Telegram.

McDonnell, who joined the Long Beach Police Department in 2010, said he will continue to serve as head of the department while he runs for the job vacated by longtime Sheriff Lee Baca. Baca announced last week that he would not seek re-election amid allegations of mismanagement, corruption and misconduct by deputies in the jail system. The primary is June 3.

Sheriff Baca just goes the status quo in LA. Everyone sucks up to the mayor. LA is just like NYC, the Mayors think there God. Kind of like the people in the WH. Most of LA, NYC, SF are runned by anti-American illegal alien loving people. If it was WWII they'd welcome the NAZI's to make German the official language of the USA! Or Japanese, if Imperial Japan invaded the USA. But since they couldn't' get their way in WWII. They've embraced third-world multiculturism. The same far Left people who've preached individualism, with abortion and homosexuality. Don't like people being individuals, who appose third world politics and are pro American individualism. Borders language, and culture. Are what keeps a Nation State alive! One common language ie English etc.
