WTF?Ã‚Â Ã‚Â I just don’t get this one.Ã‚Â The personnel file ofÃ‚Â a deputy, accused of encouragning the beating death of an inmate in the Orange County Jail has gone “missing.”Ã‚Â In the middle of a high profile investigation, and civil litigation how do you lose potential evidence?
The Orange County Register has the report here, but this one doesn’t even pass the sniff test.
The Department has this to say:
SheriffÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s officials discovered the file was missing last year, Capt. Dave Nighswonger said Wednesday. It included TaylorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s past records from the Torrance Police Department.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It is unusual we would lose a file,Ã¢â‚¬Â Nighswonger said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“And the fact that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the primary deputy involved does look suspicious. Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ But there is nothing in the file we would want to hide.Ã¢â‚¬Â
What do you think?Ã‚Â
