  1. One more of the criminal law enforcement in this county. This facility is number one on corruption. Other situations have been deputies having sexual relations with inmates…there are no secrets in this world…sooner…later…we know.

  2. One more!!!
    The DA Victor Chen should be on that long list,along with Waltrip his dirty , dirty assistant.
    Maybe one of the dirtiest Team players in Santa Clara County.. The witness leading, false presentation of evidence, Creating and manufacturing evidence and presenting it to a jury is real.. Just To stake years for his career FAKE career goals.,.
