Rep. Maxine Waters on Wednesday requested that the U.S. Department of Justice investigate allegations that a violent gang of deputies called the Executioners runs operations at the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Compton station. Waters cited Gonzalez’s testimony, Guardado’s killing and the Nazi imagery featured on the Executioners’ tattoo in her request. Sheriff’s officials have presented their investigations into both the Guardado shooting and the alleged kidnapping incident to the L.A. County district attorney’s office. The Sheriff’s Department is already under investigation by the California attorney general. “What we do have evidence of is the explosion of homelessness in Maxine Waters district and throughout Los Angeles County,” Satterfield said.
