Sheriff: It’s cheaper to kill than wound suspect


A sheriff running for re-election in Kern
County, California, is being forced to address some controversial remarks he made on police
violence in an old video. The comments were made 12 years ago while
Sheriff Donny Youngblood was speaking to a group of officers during his first campaign
for county sheriff. Youngblood won that campaign and has been
the head law enforcement officer in Kern County ever since. He was there in 2015, when the Kern County
Sheriff’s Office had the highest rate of police killings in the U.S. Kern County deputies and Bakersfield police
killed 13 people in 2015. That’s more than the entire New York Police
Department, which serves about 10 times as many people and has 23 times as many officers. Unfortunately, it’s hard to put Kern County’s
2015 police killings in context with other years because before 2015, there was no reliable
count of police violence around the country. That said, since 2015 police killings by the
Kern County Sheriff’s Office have dropped significantly. After 2015, the department faced investigations
from the California attorney general’s office and the ACLU. The ACLU ultimately released a report saying
there was: As for Youngblood, he says the comments were
taken out of context and that he’s “never inferred we should shoot to kill.” He also mentioned he wished he would have
worded his comments differently.
