After seven years of guarding inmates in Los Angeles County jails, Deputy Guadalupe Lopez was transferred to the East L.A. Station to continue her career working in patrol. It was there, she says in a lawsuit filed this week, that she encountered a rogue group of deputies called the “Banditos.” The Banditos, she alleges, sport matching tattoos and try to coerce female deputy patrol trainees like her into performing sexual favors. In a 19-page lawsuit, Lopez contends that she was assigned a training officer who was known as the “Godfather” and was a leader of the group.

In his scathing and deeply reported examination of the U.S. Border Patrol, Todd Miller argues that the agency has gone rogue since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, trampling on the dignity and rights of the undocumented with military-style tactics. "The U.S. Border Patrol is not just the 'men in green,' it is a much larger complex and industrial world that spans from robotics, engineers, salespeople and detention centers to the incoming generation of children in its Explorer programs," Miller writes in "Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches From the Front Lines of Homeland Security.

The recent explosion of scripted dramas from outlets as disparate as History and Netflix has created such a surfeit of fine television that it's become increasingly difficult for even the most dedicated viewer to keep up. For those who already feel overwhelmed, a bit of good news: DirecTV first foray, the mob-cop thriller "Rogue," is pretty terrible, a moody, broody jumble of clichéd characters, pregnant pauses and sex scenes that border on the pornographic....

A particularly shrewd political analyst once remarked that Ronald Reagan's great strength as a candidate was that he was "a sincere phony." In the world of electoral realpolitik, that's a compliment. What the analyst meant was that Reagan had the ability to convince himself that he actually held expedient views he'd never previously entertained and that belief, in turn, allowed him to speak of them with utter conviction. Thus, the governor who'd signed the nation's most permissive abortion-rights statute became the resolutely pro-life president.

Re "Maywood employs police officers with a history of trouble," April 1 Is anyone surprised that the city of Maywood -- a "sanctuary city" for illegal immigrants -- employs police officers with questionable backgrounds? Maywood is a city that openly flouts the law. Rogue city attracts rogue cops. End of story. BEVERLY ANTEL Torrance

Societe Generale fought off political pressure to fire its chairman, but the French bank failed to quash persistent takeover speculation. The bank's board also said it had set up a committee of independent directors to ensure that the cause and size of its rogue trading losses were fully accounted for. The bank has been in turmoil since revealing $7.3 billion of losses, which it blames on rogue share trades by a junior employee, Jerome Kerviel....

Walk blindfolded into a Nissan dealership and you'll soon bump into a vehicle with a CVT. Twelve models come with this new type of transmission. No other brand has so thoroughly embraced the technology. Honda sells four vehicles with such a setup; Toyota has one. So it's with a bit of irony that, after a week of testing the all-new Rogue crossover, our biggest headache came from - yes, the CVT. For all the development Nissan has put into the gearbox, it apparently still can't figure out how to build one that drives well.

Nissan rolled up its sleeves for another crack at the popular compact crossover segment by announcing its all-new 2014 Rogue on Wednesday. The second-generation Rogue will take on the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Chevy Equinox and Toyota RAV4 when it goes on sale in November. This segment has become one of the most popular in the industry, and trails only pickup trucks and compact and midsize sedans in sales volume. Despite the outgoing model's advanced age, the Rogue has been Nissan's second-most-popular vehicle, behind only the Altima sedan.

Although this well-appointed dramedy "One Night in Miami" concerns what might have gone down in the Hampton House the night Cassius Clay became world heavyweight champion, that doesn't stop it from grabbing our imaginations. Centered on expressive, first-rate depictions of Clay, singer Sam Cooke, football star Jim Brown and civil-rights leader Malcolm X, the play remains tautly entertaining under director Carl Cofield. Rogue Machine at Theatre/Theater, 5041 Pico Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays.

Question: I am on my association's board of directors. At our last board meeting our current management company presented the board with a "questionable" contract, one that would supersede the present contract that is presently in force and unexpired. After briefly looking over the questionable contract, I found several items that the association could be sued for, and other items directors could be sued for personally by owners. When I brought this to the president's attention during the meeting, he said he would sign it anyway.

Over the last 15 years, biennial exhibitions have gone from being must-see displays of the latest trends to the art world equivalent of Facebook friends: too numerous to care about deeply but too ubiquitous to ignore completely. Over a slightly shorter span L.A. Louver presents “Rogue Wave,” a sort of micro-biennial that delivers the benefits of old-school biennials (exciting art) while avoiding the pitfalls (far-fetched explanations meant to distinguish one biennial from another)

Re "Justice, on Both Sides of the Border," editorial, July 14: One reason Mexico hesitates to extradite its citizens for murder trials in this country is that Mexico is a civilized country without the death penalty. Meanwhile, the U.S. is one of a handful of "rogue" countries that perpetrate violence by continuing to kill. This, even with the questionable reliability of justice in this country.

Re "Bush Team Sees U.S. Withdrawal From ABM Pact," July 12: Far from outliving its usefulness, the ABM treaty helped slow U.S.-Russian nuclear madness, end the Cold War and lay groundwork for the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, signed but not yet ratified by the U.S. and just a few other nations. Until the NPT is ratified, the ABM treaty is still critically needed. Since our administration believes faith-based agencies can best use government funds to improve social services for our nation's needy, why not entrust them with the billions targeted for missile defense to help them take the offensive in serving our world's needy?

A reporter and cameraman for CBS2/KCAL9 were attacked in the Crenshaw district by rogue protesters who broke off from a peaceful demonstration at Leimert Park, police said Tuesday. Reporter Dave Bryan was interviewing Joseph Degurre, 43, about 10 p.m. Monday when video shows Bryan getting hit in the back of the head by the cameraman's camera. The attackers then ran off, witnesses said. “He pushed the camera guy down and the camera guy went down, the camera went down, David went down,” Degurre told The Times after the incident.
