Will the Los Angeles Sheriff Be Held Accountable for Mitrice Richardson’s Disappearance?

“The LA County Sheriff’s Department was grossly negligent, and the officers on that shift, grossly negligent in allowing her to leave and walk out without any form of communication with her family or friends,” says the attorney of Latice Sutton, whose lesbian daughter Mitrice Richardson went missing after leaving police custody — in September.

Latice is now suing, saying she has video footage of the county police witnessing Mitrice’s bizarre “altered state” behavior while in custody (more on that in the video from the LAT‘s Carla Hall), and then letting releasing her without a car, cell phone, or any belongings.

The Department of Justice finally began looking into the matter in May. And now so too will the civil courts.
