For years, corrupt LA sheriff Lee Baca has been colluding with terror-tied groups like CAIR. Longtime Atlas readers are familiar with this dirty cop. All of these politicians and law enforcement lapdogs for CAIR are corrupt and on the take.

“Former LA County Sheriff pleads guilty to corruption charge,AOL, February 11, 2016:

LOS ANGELES, Feb 10 (Reuters) – Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca pleaded guilty on Wednesday to lying to federal investigators who were conducting a corruption and civil rights probe of the nation’s largest county jail system.

The felony charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, but a federal judge ordered probation officials to prepare a pre-sentencing report before deciding on Baca’s punishment.

Baca’s plea makes him the 18th current or former member of the sheriff’s department convicted of criminal charges that stem from a long-running federal investigation of inmate abuse and other wrongdoing, including an alleged cover-up, at two downtown Los Angeles lockups.

Baca, 73, served as the top elected law enforcement official in Los Angeles for 15 years before retiring in January 2014 rather than seeking a fifth term as sheriff.

During the House Homeland Security hearing last month on the topic of radicalization in the American Muslim community, one exchange between L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca and Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN) concerned the relationship between the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and Hamas terrorist front the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Sheriff Baca told the congressman…..(more here)

    A few years ago a local human rights organization chided Lee Baca for his shameless support of the anti-God, Allah. His response was that when he got to heaven, he didn’t want to discover that he had backed the wrong god. I guess that’s called keeping your options open.

    • drummie

      Only problem is that option doesn’t work. At best someone taking that attitude would be considered lukewarm.

    • Budvarakbar

      With that attitude – he wouldn’t get to heaven to find out!

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Corrupt elected officials should be dealt with harshly, as the violation of public trust is a serious crime, that cannot be ignored or passed off. If there was an element of religious prejudice, that is even worse. everyone is equal, whether islam wants to accept that or not. Throw the book at him, then throw away the key.

      I think you misunderstand something here. California is one big sewer, in terms of power politics and corruption. The rare individuals, the beat cops and EMTs and such are good people, but the superstructure of the state is rotten top to bottom, and all the way to DC with Pelosi, Boxer and Feinstein.

      • Evil Liberal

        True Detective Season 2. People didn’t like it. I said thats because its too much like the thing in CA.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Yet the caliph-orninnians keep voting the same pork barrelling thieves into office repeatedly. Weird bunch.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      I like the way the PRC deals w/corrupt government officials — a bullet in the head, for which the family is charged.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Seems fair, why should society pay any more than it has to for the repercussions of crime.

  • Dr. Doomsday

    Another CAIRorist in the news. Typical California manure politics. Isn’t “Baca” or phonetically, “Baka” a word for “Stupid” in Japanese?

  • Rocinante44

    follow the money. i’d love to see someone investigate how much muslim money was stuffed in baca’s pockets

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    I used to know an L.A. Sheriff’s deputy who served in the headquarters under both Baka and Block. He told me he thought Baka was corrupt almost ten years ago. I believed him back then and obviously he was right.

  • Surf City

    Pretty much everyone in law enforcement thought Baca was trash. One problem. The voters continued to elect him.

  • roger

    But it can’t be.. Lee Baca stated that-
    “We don’t play around with criminals in my world. If CAIR is an organization that is a quote “criminal organization,” prosecute them. Hold them accountable and bring them to trial”, said he. You mean he lied ? but he was in the Mosque , praying and all !
    Shocked.

      Amazing that this guy has ties to two different cults.

  • BrunoPBuhr

    “Nobody here but us chickens…allah bac bak bac akbar”

  • Drew the Infidel

    It sounds like LA was lucky not to have had a sensational public murder like the Kate Steinle incident in SF. If this guy is sent up, he will be placed in ad seg for his own protection. A cop housed in the general population has the life expectancy of a dead man.

  • PRenaud

    Oh no, what a betrayal for $$$cientology’s leader David Miscavige, he’s getting a good taste of his own medicine.

  • Mike Smith

    Corruption starts at the top!
    Nobody in the media has asked Hillary why Obama lied last year to cover up his knowledge of her email server. either.
    Obama lied to CBS news journalist, Bill Plante about Hillary’s server almost a
    year ago on 3-8-2015, he denied knowing about her private email system.
    =search for youtube video , =V1I0Y7qIdA0 , starts at 6:04
    Why
    hasn’t anyone in the media has called him out on this lie? Is Bill
    Plante a patsy, too? State Dept has now admitted that Obama had
    communication on Hillary’s server. The words conspiracy and obstruction of justice come to my mind, but maybe that’s because I remember Watergate.
    State Dept admitted last month that Obama emailed Hillary at least 18 times on her server.

    Sheriff Lee Baca swore an oath to the Constitution. He is the essence of the foreign and domestic enemy he swore to protect against. High crimes and misdemeanors is an understatement… you can’t have it both ways Lee.

    No wonder CCW permits were restricted under this clown.

  • karl59

    Baca has been cozying up to these Moslems for years.

  • 1PierreMontagne1

    So Baca must now be a living Martyr for Islam?
    After all, lying to non-Muslim investigators is that not taqiyya?
    Anything a Muslims does to or in relation to non -Muslims defaults to always being in the furtherance of Islam. Corrupt treatment of non believers by Muslims is a calling not a crime.
    The judge must agree, he is after all requesting probation reports prior to any sentencing.

    Under his culture and sharia, wouldn’t he lose a hand?
