California Attorney General Says Riverside Sheriff’s Defense of Extremist Oath Keepers is ‘Disturbing’

Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

Quoted by LAist, Erroll Southers says there are different factions of the Oath Keepers, with some more anti-government than others, Southers said, but he argued that doesn’t excuse the Riverside County sheriff’s defense of the group.

“To be currently serving in a law enforcement position and to defend a group that participated in an insurrection where officers were killed at the United States Capitol, there is no justification for that.”
