Calling it a “highly visible eyesore,” the town of Hillsborough is asking a San Mateo County judge to order the owner of the famed Flintstone House to remove a metal menagerie of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals, along with other decorative accoutrements from her property.
We do want to do the right thing, but all too often we are discouraged. It’s not just being ignored, it’s also having our lives threatened. One party ignores our efforts, another threatens our lives, it can take a lot of courage just to try.
So with people doing their best to avoid informing others it means investigations can and do fail. It takes persistence and a certain obstinance to get to the bottom of an affair.
Not having the resources I can but encourage others to pursue this. Something stinks here and it’s about time we dealt with it. Know you anything about the deaths mentioned above let your authorities know. For the longer certain parties continue to get away with their crimes, the longer our lives are going to be insecure.
What it comes down to is, the LA district attorney betrayed the law and justice. What the guard did in my opinion is a crime and needs to be prosecuted as such.
I have to ask, who put pressure on the DA, and did any “considerations” play a role? Being really nasty, were any bribes tendered to get the prosecution squashed?
You don’t shot people without cause. The guard had no cause. Looking like you might do something is not a reason to shoot, you have to wait until the subject actually does something.
The victim wore dark clothes and had a backpack on. Is it now open season on school bound goths? And what about Perez’s right to tape in public. Given that she’s apparently a transexual the Feds may have grounds for a civil rights charge against the guard in question.
And speaking of him, how can we trust him to act appropriately and responsibly in such a situation? Sounds to me like the Synagogue in question has grounds to terminate his employment. He overreacted, he caused injury to a human being, and from the sound of it his shitty aim placed others in danger. Being a security guard requires some measure of maturity, this character acted like a brat.
The decision to drop charges against the guard needs to be reversed. The LA DA needs to either resign or be forced out of office. We need to start holding certain parties responsible for their behavior.
Tariq Harris and Shamiko Harris, Jr., were removed for “safety” reasons from Lincoln High after students beat them. Shamiko Jr. suffered a concussion. His father, Shamiko Harris Sr., was later arrested after complaining to district staff. Staff said he threatened them, but a judge disagreed.
What you see here is the practice some people have of blaming the victim. I’ve been subject to it, as have others. In this case bullies saw a pair of brothers as convenient targets for abuse, and some adults decided to take the side of the brats. There is a name for people like this, “honkey”. I don’t care where their ancestors came from, or how dark their skin is, they are honkeys, and I say it’s about time we got on their case about it.
