Michael asked

To the editor: According to the L.A. Times, threats against retiring county chief executive Sachi Hamai because of actions taken by Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva were so bad that the Board of Supervisors agreed to a $1.5-million settlement and to provide private security for her.
The settlement, paid with taxpayer money, came about because of the words and deeds of our elected sheriff. What did Villanueva do and say that caused this settlement?
It is hard to imagine that he escapes any liability for this. It is also hard to believe that Villanueva’s conduct is consistent with his duties as sheriff. Now, the public needs the rest of the story. Our right to know has rarely been so important.
