This week, Jamie and Caitlin speak with journalist Cerise Castle about her groundbreaking new series “A Tradition of Violence: The History of Deputy Gangs in the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department” for Knock LA. We can’t recommend it enough -- Cerise also brings us "Den of Thieves," a movie that glorifies one of the LASD gangs she reports on. Read the series here, and follow Cerise on Twitter @cerisecastle!
