Rosas v. Baca seeks to end a pattern of deputies' beating inmates in Men's Central Jail, Twin Towers and the Inmate Reception Center of the Los Angeles County jails. The suit alleges that former L.A. Sheriff Lee Baca was aware of this pattern of beatings and failing to take reasonable steps to stop it. The suit seeks injunctive relief to change the culture in the jails by having LASD implement proper use of force policies, training, review of use of force incidents and discipline for those who engage in improper use of force.
