L.A. Sheriff Goes to Israel To Find Facts & Take Sides

It’s good to know that all the problems of Los Angeles have been solved. This frees up much needed time for city leaders to travel the world on “fact-finding” missions.

The Modesto Bee reports that Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca is in Israel this weekend, becoming the latest elected official to show support for the military invasion of Gaza.


Baca condemned Hamas’ rocket attacks on Israeli towns and expressed support for Israel’s military action in the Gaza Strip.

The sheriff is the latest local public official to declare support for Israel. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and four City Council members did so in a press conference…

The Bee goes on to say that it was LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky who asked the sheriff to make the trip, which Baca himself is paying for.

Funny. When we were growing up, my brother and I used to beat the crap out of each other in the backyard. I don’t remember any non-family members showing up to tell us who was right and who was wrong.
