|Co-conspirator Undersheriff Paul Tanaka|
His fall guy was the criminal undersheriff Paul Tanaka, second in command, who ordered deputies at the LA Men's Jail to beat prisoners and deprive them of their civil liberties. He was recently sentenced to five years in prison because he was so arrogant that he refused any deal that would damage his reputation, pension, or standing among underlings who looked up to him as the man who protected their official misconduct.

It is a whole other thing for corrupt officials to destroy confidence in policing, to encourage abuses and promote felonies among the very people hired and paid to protect the public. Baca should face no less than five years in prison, like his undersheriff who go off lightly given all the crimes he committed, and presumably much longer given the gravity of his actions and position. Why is he receiving such a handsome pension when he was a criminal at the helm?

All of these high crimes come about from contact on the streets as well as the jail system, often just a temporary detention center for innocent people awaiting trial and not serving any sentence whatsoever, filled to overcapacity by the LAPD and run by the LA County Sheriff's Department.
