Unsuspecting LA County Deputies are being attacked in a vile and disgusting manner referred to as “gassing”.  That’s when inmates toss urine, feces and even semen at deputies as they walk down the halls. Since the cells have open bars, deputies are easy targets. They can't see the inmates until they are right in front of them. Deputies say the jail facility is antiquated with a linear configuration and needs to be replaced.  The Sheriff's department hopes the LA County Men's Central Jail will be replaced with a new consolidated treatment facility.
