The "Jump Out Boys" smoking gun


Brooke talks to Robert Faturechi of the LA Times about his article detailing an  internal investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department  into a secret clique within one of its elite gang enforcement units.

The so-called "Jump Out Boys" are said to have matching gun-toting skull tattoos which are then modified to depict a smoking gun when a member is involved in a shooting. While there is no evidence of improper shootings or misconduct by the deputies, the department is looking into whether any department rules were violated.
