Susan recounts some of the history of civil rights violations of the Sheriff in the county.IOLERO was part of the county’s response to the killing of 13-year old Andy Lopez by Deputy Eric Gelhaus, besides its millions of dollars in court cousts defending this deputy from Civil Suit by the parents of Andy.
