Last May Lawrence G. Grossman, a consultant hired by the county to study its jail operations, described 17 altercations within the jail between deputies and inmates as representing a "possible excessive use of force." The 17 were drawn from 88 incidents during a 3-month period ending last January. The Times obtained the reports filed by jail deputies on each of the 17 incidents. Here is a summary, based on those reports: Nov. 6, 1987 6 a.m. in the third-floor housing area.

A gunman distressed over the death of his mother went on a shooting spree inside an Orange County hospital Tuesday morning, killing three employees and sending patients diving for cover during a terrifying chase through hospital corridors. The gunman repeatedly shouted, "You killed my mother!" during the deadly rampage at West Anaheim Medical Center, apparently driven by the death of his 72-year-old mother less than an hour earlier at a nearby hospital.

I think it is a great idea that the Fullerton Joint High School District has established a toll-free number for people to report weapons, explosives, drugs, tagging, or other illegal activities at schools ("Schools Hot Line Aims to Fight Crime," March 29). It's great that it's free and that people won't have to leave their names because that way they won't be afraid to call and tell of any illegal activities. Hopefully with this new system, the violence in Orange County will be reduced and students will learn that taking weapons to school will get them expelled.

After nearly a week of lockdowns stemming from gang violence, Orange County jails are expected to return to normal today, with inmates resuming their regular privileges, said Orange County sheriff's spokesman Damon Micalizzi. Last Friday night, guards broke up an altercation between rival gang members at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange, the county's most populous jail with 2,770 inmates, Micalizzi said. There are 6,600 inmates in county jails.

A 17-year-old youth was sentenced Friday to eight years in custody of the California Youth Authority for helping to murder his girlfriend's mother, a Fullerton woman who was the former head of an anti-violence program. Orange County Superior Court Judge Ragnar Engebretsen sentenced Scott Oscar Paul of Whittier to 26 years to life, but as required by law ordered that Paul be put in CYA custody, meaning that he can be held at most until he is 25.

Law enforcement and community officials Monday urged that Orange County begin developing a regional anti-gang strategy that crosses the county's many municipal boundaries. In preparation for a countywide summit scheduled for November to address gang violence, Orange County Gang Prevention Alliance members are linking police officers with educators and business leaders with court officials in an attempt to build coalitions that would address the problem.

In response to increasing campus crime, the Fullerton Joint Union High School District has established a toll-free phone line for people to report weapons, explosives, drugs, tagging or other illegal activities at district schools. "There have been so many more occurrences of violence in Orange County around schools this year," said Shirley Finton at the superintendent's office.
