Protesters Demand Transparency as Sheriff Jones Addresses Board of Supervisors
SACRAMENTO -- Amid a vocal crowd, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones addressed the Board of Supervisors Tuesday. "I've been described as rogue, authoritarian, a dictator, a mini Trump. Oh, yeah, OK a racist, we'll add that too. All because I won't voluntarily allow independent oversight of the sheriff's department," Jones said at the podium, responding to a shouting crowd. "This seems strange to me. No other agency in the region, not the Sacramento Police Department, no other sheriff's department in the state, has oversight in the type that's being advocated for here."
