New York, NY {PUBLISHED: March 6, 2017 at 12:50 pm | UPDATED: August 24, 2017 at 01:53 am} -- The New York health department alerted doctors to the case of a newborn who fell ill after undergoing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish practice in which the circumcision wound is cleaned by the Rabbi's mouth. The baby boy was rushed to hospital when he developed herpes following the controversial ancient circumcision ritual. A rash is said to have spread across the child’s genitals, buttocks, inner thighs and ankle two weeks after the procedure. An estimated 3,000 babies are circumcised each year using the method in New York City. NYC is home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. There have been six cases of herpes among children who have had the ritual known as metzitzah b’peh performed on them since February 2015. Of the six previously undisclosed cases, two occurred last year and three in 2015. Herpes, a highly contagious viral disease which can cause blisters and ulcers. Herpes is more severe in newborn babies as their immune systems are not fully developed. Since 2000, there have been 24 cases of infant herpes linked to circumcision, leading to two deaths and two cases of brain damage.

Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap. Guap is the daughter of a Oakland police dispatcher. The police investigation will look at whether Guap was under age during some of the encounters with officers. (Click here for video)

New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)

Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired. The car belonged to a woman named Lakeya Hicks, who had the paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. Hicks’ tags weren’t expired, and a check on her license came up clean. However, the cops didn’t let her go. (Click here for video)

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

Teti Rows!

Posted: April 22, 2016 12:01 AM PDT ~ Updated: April 25, 2016 04:02 AM PDT

BERKELEY, CA -- The University of California is being rocked by yet another widening sexual misconduct scandal. On Thursday, the University revealed it has hired an outside investigator to examine a sexual assault complaint against a member of the Cal men's rowing team. A former female member of the team is the alleged victim. She claims coach Mike Teti (pictured above, center) knew she had been sexually assaulted in December 2013 at a rowing team party. She said the coach told her to stop crying instead of reporting it. Teti allegedly said: "You're no angel anyway," and asked her about her sexual relationships with other rowers. Athletic coaches are among the campus employees required to report such allegations to the campus anti-discrimination office.

Teti is also an Olympic medalist and nationally regarded coach. Media sources reached Teti Thursday evening. Teti wrote in an email the "allegations are completely false and I'm confident any investigation will prove this." The new investigation is the second time the university has looked into the woman's complaint. The campus Office of Anti-discrimination determined last year that Teti had not violated the university's sexual harassment policy.

UC Berkeley complaint resolution officer Paula Raffaelli told the woman in an email that she had spoken with Teti "about the kind of questions and conversations he had with you, and the language he used." The email from Raffaelli also said the men's crew coaches and athletes would receive additional training related to sexual violence and harassment, "with a specific emphasis on gender and sex stereotyping."

The woman is not being identified because Corrupt Justice™ does not name victims of sexual abuse. In an interview she said she had been sexually assaulted over the years on more than one occasion. The assaults were by different teammates. She quit the crew team after the final alleged assault in summer 2014. The instant assault occurred in December 2013. The woman said in interviews that she fell asleep on her teammate's couch, fully clothed. She awoke naked in a teammate's bed after the team's annual "xxxmas party," known as "triple-x." She told media sources that Teti informed her in a one-on-one meeting the following month that he knew what had happened. However, he blamed her reputation and asked about her sexual relationships on the team. "He said, 'You're no angel anyway,' " she said. "It made me so upset."

In an email to Teti, she said she feared for her safety on the team. Teti wrote back two weeks later. He wrote: "First, I'd like to clear up any misunderstanding you may have about our coach, athlete working relationship. I was never under the impression there was tension there." He told her he had notified the campus anti-discrimination office about her concerns. He said that she should not have to fear retaliation for reporting sexual harassment or assault. "You should not have to resign from the team because of discomfort you may feel after reporting an incident. There are ways we can manage that discomfort without you resigning from the team." He referred her to several counseling centers on campus. He added: "It is clear that this is a difficult time for you. ... Let me emphasize again that I value you as a student-athlete and would like to address your current concerns as best we can."

The woman's father said he was told by UC officials Thursday the latest probe would investigate at least one of the sexual assaults his daughter reported to the university. The investigation would include the coach's role in reporting what he knew. Cal's athletic department acknowledged the investigation in a statement late Thursday afternoon. However, citing student privacy laws, the University said it was not able to discuss the details. The statement said the department "will continue to work extremely hard to make sure everyone involved is held to the highest of standards across the board."

On Friday, UC spokeswoman Dianne Klein said the investigation is focusing on the assault allegations. She said the investigation would not focus on the coach's role. If that investigation raises questions about Teti's conduct, that would be investigated separately.

Teti is a towering figure in his sport, having rowed in three Olympics and being an assistant or head coach of the U.S. team five times. He moved to Cal from Princeton in 2008. His teams finished in the top five at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association championships during his first five years at Berkeley. Teti is legendary in rowing circles. He was described years ago in a New Yorker profile as playing "a role not unlike that of a drill instructor in a Marine boot camp -- Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, from Stanley Kubrick's 'Full Metal Jacket.' "

The claims against Teti suggested a tight-knit, macho culture on the rowing team. Women often fulfill the role of coxswain, steering the boat and coordinating the rowers. Former coxswain, Stephanie Gardner said he promoted an attitude of negativity and hostility from the top down. She said she quit the team in 2012 after experiencing relentless bullying by her teammates. The bullying got so bad she became terrified to go to practice.

Gardner said she met with an assistant coach and told him about the harassment. "His response was basically, 'This is what you should expect as a girl on this team. You just need to be tougher. I will try to keep them under control, but there isn't much I can do.'" She continued, "Coaches should not allow harassment to happen on their team right in front of them. They listened to it; they knew what was happening, and they didn't care."

The allegations come just weeks after Cal assistant basketball coach Yann Hufnagel resigned after sexual misconduct allegations. The university found he had propositioned a female reporter for sex. It was also revealed that diving coach Todd Mulzet was docked $455 in pay for sexually bullying a co-worker. The university told media sources that it is not renewing Mulzet's contract. The coaches are part of a larger scandal that has brought down a UC Berkeley provost, law school dean, world-renowned astronomy professor and other high profile faculty members.

Berkeley, CA -- The University of California at Berkeley initiated termination proceedings against men’s basketball assistant coach Yann Hufnagel (pictured above, center). Hufnagel is in his second year as an assistant coach at UC Berkeley. He previously served as an assistant at Vanderbilt University, Harvard University and the University of Oklahoma. UC initiated the proceedings after a finding that he violated the university’s sexual harassment policy. The finding were made by the university’s Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination. UC Berkeley officials said head coach Cuonzo Martin initiated proceedings against Hufnagel.

Hufnagel has been relieved of his duties effectively immediately pending the outcome of the termination process. He did not travel with the Cal basketball team to the NCAA tournament game against University of Hawaii. UC Berkeley officials distributed a redacted version of the investigation of Hufnagel on March 14, 2016. Hufnagel has been provided with a copy the complaint against him. He has had an opportunity to review the findings.

Hufnagel is the latest in a string of UC Berkeley officials to come under fire for alleged sexual misconduct. UC Berkeley law school dean Sujit Coudry resigned from his post following allegations that he had sexually harassed his executive assistant for months in 2014 and 2015. Astronomy professor Geoffrey Marcy resigned in October amid allegations that he had sexually harassed students for a decade.

Sacramento, CA -- UC Davis spent thousands to scrub police pepper-spray references from Internet. UC Davis contracted with consultants for at least $175,000 to scrub the Internet of negative online postings following the November 2011 pepper-spraying of students and to improve the reputations of both the university and Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi, newly released documents show.

The payments were made as the university was trying to boost its image online and were among several contracts issued following the pepper-spray incident.

Some payments were made in hopes of improving the results computer users obtained when searching for information about the university or Katehi, results that one consultant labeled “venomous rhetoric about UC Davis and the chancellor.”

Professor Arsonist!

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- Rainer Reinscheid wrote a chilling email titled, "a good plan," detailing violent revenge on the people he blamed for his teen son's suicide. His son hanged himself after being disciplined at high school in March, sending the University of California, Irvine, professor into a downward spiral that authorities said led to setting fires and venting his anger in graphic emails describing plans for a mass murder, sexual assaults and his own death.

Reinscheid fantasized about buying a dozen machine guns, killing 200 University High School students, raping a school counselor and killing the assistant principal who disciplined his 14-year-old son, Claas Stubbe. "I will make him cry and beg, but I will not give him a chance, just like he did to Claas," Reinscheid wrote. "I will make him die, slowly, surely. Next I will set fire to Uni High and try to burn down as much as I can, there should be nothing left that gives them a reason to continue their miserable school."

Reinscheid never acted on his most violent musings and police have no evidence he was preparing for a shooting, but prosecutors charged him with a series of small arsons that targeted the high school, the assistant principal's home and the park where Claas hanged himself. Five fires erupted between July 1 and July 19, and police caught Reinscheid as he tried to start a sixth one July 24, Irvine police Lt. Julia Engen said.

While investigating the fires, police discovered three emails Reinscheid sent to his wife and himself in April from his university account. Copies of the messages were filed in court by prosecutors to have him held without bail. He's due in court for arraignment Aug. 8. In the emails, the distraught father asks his wife to forgive him for many disappointments but asks her to understand that he "had to go this way" after detailing plans to kill the vice principal and destroy the school in a firestorm.

"You would have done the same if it was your child that you failed," he wrote to her April 26. Claas was Reinscheid's son from a first marriage. He has a stepdaughter and son from his second marriage. He asked his wife to tell their son, "Daddy was so sad when Claas passed away, he was just eaten away by his sadness and stopped breathing."

Two nights later, while on using prescription drugs to stay awake and "legally drunk" while downing a second bottle of wine, Reinscheid wrote to himself about how he had fantasized about having sex with every young girl he saw on campus that day.

Then he discussed his "dreams" of mass murder at the high school, including explicit details of how he planned to make a teacher get naked in front of students and stab herself with a red pencil before he shot her in the head. "I will give myself a wonderful ending and be with Claas very soon," he wrote. "I like this plan, finally a good idea."

Reinscheid, a professor of pharmaceutical sciences who also holds German citizenship, has not been charged with anything related to the content of the emails because they were private communications, said Farrah Emami, an Orange County district attorney's spokeswoman.

SANTA ANA, CA -- Jurors found 10 Muslim students guilty Friday of disrupting a lecture by the Israeli ambassador at the University of California, Irvine in a case that stoked a spirited debate about free speech. Jurors delivered the verdicts in Orange County Superior Court in the case involving a speech by Ambassador Michael Oren in February 2010 at the Irvine campus. The students were also convicted of conspiring to disrupt Oren's speech. They were charged with misdemeanor counts after standing up, one by one, and shouting prepared statements at Oren such as "propagating murder is not an expression of free speech."

About 150 people, including relatives and supporters of the students and Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, attended the verdict. Some community members gasped and started crying when the verdict was read and about a dozen of them walked out.

The students showed little reaction but later huddled with their attorneys and shared hugs with family and friends. Shakeel Syed of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California said he was shocked. "This is yet another reaffirmation that Islamophobia is intensely and extensively alive and thriving in Orange County," he said. "I believe this will be used as precedent now to suppress speech and dissent throughout the country. This is the beginning of the death of democracy."

Prosecutors said the students broke the law by interrupting Oren's speech on U.S.-Israel relations and cutting short the program, despite calls to behave from campus officials. Defense attorneys argued the students had a right to protest.

Nearly 200 people packed the courtroom to hear closing arguments at the trial that some community members called a waste of taxpayers' money and an effort to single out the defendants because they are Muslim.

Prosecutor Dan Wagner told jurors the students acted as censors to block the free flow of ideas and infringed upon the rights of 700 people who had gone to the Irvine campus to hear Oren.

Wagner showed video footage of university officials pleading with students to behave, but they kept interrupting the lecture. Wagner also showed emails sent among members of UC Irvine's Muslim Student Union planning the disruption and calculating who was willing to get arrested.

Defense attorneys countered there were no hard rules for the speech, and the students might have been discourteous but didn't break the law. Lawyer Reem Salahi, who represents two of the defendants, said the demonstration was modeled after a series of protests at UC Irvine and elsewhere in which students shouted at lecturers but weren't arrested. She said the students never intended to halt Oren's speech entirely but wanted to express their views on the Israeli government's actions in Gaza.

During the case, attorneys showed dueling pie charts breaking down how much time the students demonstrated, how long their supporters cheered and how much time Oren spoke. The evidence was intended to show whether the meeting suffered a significant disruption.

Attorneys for the students -- who attended UC Irvine and nearby University of California, Riverside -- argued before the trial that charges should never have been filed and that the issue was already handled on campus.

In 2010, the students were cited, released and disciplined at UC Irvine, which revoked the Muslim Student Union's charter for a quarter and placed it on two years of probation. Earlier this year, District Attorney Tony Rackauckas filed criminal charges against 11 students, prompting an outcry from the American Civil Liberties Union and a host of Jewish, Muslim and campus groups. Charges against one defendant later were dropped.

Israeli Jew Arrested!

August 12, 2010

ATLANTA – A suspect in a string of 20 stabbings that terrorized people across three states and left five dead was arrested at an airport as he tried to board a plane for Israel, officials said Thursday. A judge in Flint, Mich., where the attacks began in late May, signed a warrant Thursday charging Elias Abuelazam with assault with intent to murder in connection with a July 27 stabbing. It was not clear if Abuelazam was the man arrested late Wednesday at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. That man, whom authorities have not named, was stopped while trying to board a Delta Air Lines flight to Tel Aviv, Israel, said Rafael Lemaitre, a spokesman at U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Passengers on the flight said as they arrived Thursday in Tel Aviv that the suspect was arrested at the boarding gate shortly before takeoff. They said his name was called over a loudspeaker, and then six police officers led him away without incident. The suspect has ties to Flint and to Leesburg, Va., the site of three similar attacks last week, Leesburg Police Officer Chris Jones said. "While this is a key step in the investigation, there are still many issues that need to be addressed before we identify this individual as the person responsible for this horrific crime spree," Jones said.

(Elias Abuelazam, Jew Serial Killer, pictured above) The suspect is an Israeli citizen who is in the U.S. legally, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the ongoing investigation. Police had focused their hunt on Flint — where 16 stabbings took place — until Leesburg police reported three attacks. Authorities in Toledo, Ohio, say a stabbing in that city Saturday appears to be linked to the violent spree. Atlanta authorities got involved when the suspect was arrested at the airport, said Atlanta Police spokesman Carlos Campos. "It's not our investigation," he said. "We simply were involved in the apprehension."

The Israeli consulate in Atlanta was in touch with the U.S. government to get information about the case, spokeswoman Amanda Flaks said. As of Wednesday afternoon, a task force led by the Michigan State Police and including the FBI had received 469 tips. The attacks began surfacing in late spring, and picked up the pace as the stabber traversed the country. Police have said they usually follow a pattern: The suspect approaches black men late at night on lonely urban roads and asks for directions or help with a broken-down car. Then, without warning, he pulls out a knife and strikes. Then, he speeds away in his vehicle, leaving them for dead.

The brazen nature and the frequency of the attacks — the assailant has struck an average of about once every four days since the first stabbing in May — has terrified some of those in cities he's already targeted. The victims have been mostly black, and police suspect the attacks may have been racially motivated. The youngest victim was 17; the oldest was 60. They ranged in size from 5-foot-4 inches and 120 pounds to 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds.

Editor's Note: The Regents of the University of California are the largest financial contributors to the illegitimate State of Israel. The Regents are Jew dominated and wield enormous Corrupt Influence over both the U.S. Judiciary and particularly the California Judiciary. As a result, a significant number of the prosecutors and judges (who send tens of thousands of Black men to prison each year) are Jewish.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom or his successor will appoint someone to fill Kamala Harris’ post as district attorney. Newsom has said that if she resigns before him, he’ll heed her recommendation for her successor. The media has reported that many have expressed interest in the appointment include attorney Bill Fazio, San Francisco Assistant District Attorney Paul Henderson, Police Commissioner and former prosecutor Jim Hammer, and David Onek, a senior fellow at the U.C. Berkeley Center for Criminal Justice. Other possibilities included Board of Supervisors President David Chiu and San Francisco Superior Court Presiding Judge Katherine Feinstein, daughter of U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.

Racism as a Policy!

SAN DIEGO — The University of California, San Diego has halted funding for student media after a TV segment ridiculed black students outraged by a party mocking Black History Month. The head of the campus Associated Students froze funding for 33 media outlets after one outlet, The Koala, ran a student TV episode last week calling black students ungrateful and using a derogatory term for blacks.

Associated Students President Utsav Gupta (Is Gupta American?) says he wants a timeout until the campus can craft a new policy on student-funded media. The Koala, which has a reputation for airing offensive material, made fun of the reaction to an off-campus party thrown by fraternity students this month. The "Compton Cookout" urged partygoers to dress as ghetto stereotypes to commemorate Black History Month.

UC Fraudulent

June 20, 2011 - 13:40 PDT

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- With a few words in the new state budget, lawmakers will ban spending taxpayer money on intercollegiate athletics - and end a controversy that started when a sharp-eyed UC Berkeley professor found that university officials had changed details of the law. University of California officials acknowledge asking the state to remove athletics from the list of programs required to be "self-supporting and not subsidized by the state," but say the reason was bookkeeping and not an attempt to pirate taxpayer money meant for academics.

In March, computer science Professor Brian Barsky was checking changes to the state budget when he noticed a subtle difference that could, he believed, allow public money to flow to UC baseball, gymnastics, rugby and other cash-strapped teams, at the expense of academics. "Without any discussion, explanation, or publicity, the time-honored prohibition on using state funds for intercollegiate athletics at UC disappeared from the state budget," Barsky said.

UC officials insist that no campus has spent state money on athletics in at least 30 years, and that doing so would violate UC policy.

Yet Barsky wrote to editors, stirred up debate through an opinion piece in the Daily Cal, and motivated UC labor leaders to complain to Sacramento.

Now, state lawmakers have approved new language for the proposed 2011-12 budget that bans the use of taxpayer money for intercollegiate athletics.

"It's gratifying to know that this policy will now be explicitly codified in the state budget," Barsky said.

Concern over the issue runs high on campuses because state money for UC is increasingly scarce: Lawmakers approved a $500 million cut to UC's 2011-12 budget in March, and tried to cut another $150 million in the budget vetoed Thursday by Gov. Jerry Brown. The cuts are on top of millions in reductions over the past few years.

UC athletics are also in financial trouble. While a number of Cal's teams - including the baseball team playing today in the College World Series - have been saved from elimination by private donations, four of the 27 intercollegiate teams at UC Davis were not so lucky.

Patrick Lenz, UC's budget chief, called the issue of diverting state money to athletics "nonsensical."

"The language gives the perception that there's a problem," Lenz said, noting that UC has never diverted money, despite drastic cuts to the university's budget. "I'm not sure what we need the language for."

The issue of how UC pays for intercollegiate athletics has been particularly contentious at UC Berkeley. The campus has paid an average of $11 million a year to help fund some two dozen money-losing teams, according to a panel of faculty and alumni convened last year after the Faculty Senate urged Chancellor Robert Birgeneau to stop subsidizing athletics.

The money provided to the athletics department doesn't come from state funding, but from income generated by professional degree programs and student registration fees, said campus spokesman Dan Mogulof, adding that the annual subsidy will drop to $5 million by 2014.

Many faculty members are suspicious of the administration's willingness to subsidize athletics at a time when every UC campus is struggling to preserve academic quality, so Barsky's discovery rang alarm bells among UC faculty and staff statewide.

"Eliminating a control that helps ensure the prioritization of UC's core (academic) mission is not responsible management, particularly in a time of budget crisis," Lakesha Harrison, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees representing UC workers, wrote in a May 17 letter to lawmakers.

Harrison asked legislators to restore athletics to the list of self-sustaining programs - which they didn't do - and to approve budget language barring state funds for athletics - which they did.

Ironically, the financial loophole was the unintended consequence of an attempt to hold UC fiscally accountable.

Last year, the state began auditing UC at the request of state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco. Auditors noticed that UC identified athletics as an "auxiliary enterprise" - one of those campus services that people pay for, like parking or dining.

"Intercollegiate athletics should have been listed under student services" because student service fees are their primary source of support at campuses other than Berkeley and UCLA, said Lenz.

So UC changed its books, then asked the Department of Finance to change the state budget, which also listed athletics as an auxiliary enterprise.

"Our intent was to make the change consistent," Lenz said.

The problem, as Barsky quickly recognized, was that removing athletics from auxiliary enterprises meant the program no longer had to be self-supporting. And that suggested to some that UC was trying to legalize the use of general fund money for athletics.

Fueling suspicions was the escalating financial need of Cal's athletics. Not only was Berkeley struggling to save high-profile teams like baseball from being eliminated, but the UC regents also had approved a $1 billion loan to remodel Cal's Memorial Stadium that was to be repaid from athletics' thin revenues.

Was UC trying to pinch taxpayer money for those purposes?

"Nothing's further from the truth," Lenz said, noting that Cal tapped alumni donors, not taxpayers, to rescue its teams.

Yet faculty and UC workers say there is comfort in having Lenz' promise confirmed in state law.

"It holds UC accountable," said Julian Posada, a food service worker at UC Santa Cruz and executive vice president of the AFSCME union.

UC Berkeley's $140 million sports training center

The UC Berkeley "sports training center" is a euphemism for "African-American Student multi-purpose building." African-American students will live, eat, sleep and study sports here. This is the only place where African-American students will be welcomed with open arms (until they're arrested).

Cal Football Players Arrested For Dorm Room Robbery(10/21/08)

Cal seniors Morgan Seigel and Christoper Morales told KTVU racial conflicts among students are rare, but they also said African Americans make up only a small percentage of the student population at Cal and that they're often the victims of institutional racism.

"The majority of the African American students at this school are athletes. They use them for their athletic talent. After they're done with your sports, they don't care if you graduate or not," said Siegal.

(Oakland Tribune, Aug 7, 2008: by Kristin Bender) The city of Berkeley, the Panoramic Hill Association and the California Oak Foundation sued UC Berkeley in December 2006 to stop it from building its $140 million sports training center, where 44 trees are planted. After a trial last fall, Miller ruled in Cal's favor in July, lifting a stop-work order that has been in place for 18 months. But last month the California Oak Foundation and the Panoramic Hill Association both appealed Miller's ruling.

The Appeal

The ruling was issued by Division Three (3): Presiding Justice William R. McGuiness (profile coming soon), joined in the ruling by Associate Justices Peter J. Siggins and Martin J. Jenkins (Ex College & NFL athlete - Uncle Tom)

California Oak Foundation et al. v. The Regents of the University of California et al., Case Number A122511

Description: Petition summarily denied by order (Final)

On August 26, 2008 the Alameda County Superior Court (Barbara Miller) filed an "Order after Hearing" (Exh. 26) and "Respondents' Amended Judgment," which was "effective and enforceable immediately." (Exh. 25 at 281:10-11.) The following day appellants filed a Notice of Appeal. (Exh. 27.) In prior briefing respondents represented that if appellants filed their Notice of Appeal and contemplated Petition for a Writ of Supersedeas and Request for an Immediate Stay within two business days they "will continue to take no further action to implement the Southeast Campus Integrated Projects until the Court of Appeal rules on any such immediate stay request." (Exh. 20 at 246:7-13.) Appellants objected to what they characterized as the respondents' attempt to substitute a voluntary stay in lieu of a court-ordered stay. (Exh. 24.) On August 28, 2008 appellants filed a Petition for Writ of Supersedeas, Mandate, Prohibition or Other Appropriate Relief and supporting documents. The petition prays for inter alia an immediate temporary stay of the University's threatened construction-related activities, an immediate 20-day extension pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 1094.5, subdivision (g), and the issuance of a writ of supersedeas. On September 3, 2008 respondents filed an Opposition to Request for Immediate Stay and to Petition for Writ of Supersedeas, etc. and also moved that we take judicial notice of six volumes of exhibits previously filed in conjunction with an earlier writ petition, California Oak Foundation v. The Regents of the University of California, A122172. By operation of law an automatic 20-day stay goes into effect if "a stay is in effect at the time of filing the notice of appeal." (Code Civ. Proc. sec. 1094.5, subd. (g).) In the context of this statute, "stay" refers to a judicial stay, not respondents' promise to refrain from further activities. (Ibid. ["the court in which proceedings under this section are instituted may stay the operation of the administrative order or decision"; "no such stay shall be imposed or continued if the court is satisfied that it is against the public interest."].) Because there was no judicial stay in effect when the notice of appeal was filed, the statutory 20-day stay is not in effect. The motion that we take judicial notice, pursuant to Evidence Code sections 459 and 452, subdivision (d)(2) of the six volumes of exhibits previously lodged with this court in conjunction with Case Number A122172 is granted. The petition for a writ of supersedeas, mandate and/or prohibition and the related requests for an immediate stay and a 20-day stay are denied. (McGuiness, P.J., Siggins, J., and Jenkins, J.)

Moral of the Story: The Sports Training Center will be built. It pays to have your own judges on the court.

Appointment of United States Attorneys, Federal and State Judges:

“The Federal Judicial Qualifications Committee was formed in March 2001 by Democratic Party Senators Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, in conjunction with Gerald Parsky, a private businessman and member of the Republican Party. The Committee, which is responsible for recommending to the President nominations for federal district court judges and United States Attorneys in California, was established pursuant to a voluntary agreement between Parsky and Senators Feinstein and U.S. Senator Boxer to develop a list of candidates for appointment likely to meet with the approval of both the President and the Senate.”

(Jew) Gerald Parsky

(Jew) Parsky, a private businessman and member of the Republican Party is the former Chairman of the Board of Regents of the University of California. (Jew) Blum a member of the Board of Regents of the University of California, succeeded Parsky as Chariman.

UC Regent Judges!

Posted: 11/21/2012 08:19:07 PM PST - Updated: 11/24/2012 12:22:07 AM PST

Sacramento, Ca -- Gov. Jerry Brown has appointed three attorneys, all Democrats, to vacant judgeships on the Alameda County Superior Court bench.

Scott Patton, 51 (pictured left) of Piedmont, has served as a deputy district attorney in the Alameda County District Attorney's Office since 1990. Patton earned a law degree from the University of San Francisco School of Law and an undergraduate degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara.

As a prosecutor, Patton's most high-profile case was handling a lengthy preliminary hearing in which former Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV and several colleagues were accused of kidnapping and torturing two women in Oakland in May 2007 in an effort to get money from them to help ease the bakery's financial woes.

In recent years Patton has worked in the district attorney's consumer fraud unit. Patton fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Beverly Daniels-Greenberg.

Stephen Kaus, 64 (pictured left) of Berkeley, has worked at the law firm Cooper, White and Cooper, which has offices in San Francisco and Walnut Creek, since 1993 and has been a partner at the firm since 1995. Kaus is the son of former California Supreme Court Justice Otto Kaus, who was appointed to the high court in 1981 by Brown during Brown's previous tenure as governor. Otto Kaus retired from the court in 1985 and died in 1996.

Stephen Kaus was a solo practitioner from 1990 to 1993 and a partner at Kaus, Kerr and Wagstaffe from 1982 to 1990. He also was a deputy public defender at the Contra Costa County Public Defender's Office from 1974 to 1980.

Kaus earned a law degree from the University of California at Berkeley School of Law and an undergraduate degree from the University of California Los Angeles.

He fills the vacancy created by the conversion of a court commissioner position on February 9, 2012.

Gregory Syren, 53 (pictured left) of Kensington, has served as an assistant public defender in the Alameda County Public Defender's Office since 1987. He also served as a deputy public defender at the Solano County Public Defender's Office in 1987 and as a deputy public defender at the Napa County Public Defender's Office from 1986 to 1987.

Syren earned a law degree from the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law and a Bachelor of Science degree from UC Berkeley.

One of Syren's most high-profile cases was representing Christopher Hollis, who was convicted of voluntary manslaughter for the fatal shooting of his friend Meleia Willis-Starbuck in Berkeley on July 17, 2005.

Hollis claimed her death was an accident when he fired multiple shots into a crowd of people after Willis-Starbuck asked him for help when she and some friends got into a street confrontation with a group of UC Berkeley football players.

Syren fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers following her appointment to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

The compensation for each position is $178,789.

Resisting Arrest, or Death!

Posted: 12:29 p.m. Monday, July 28, 2014 | Updated: Saturday, 06:29 a.m. Saturday, August 2, 2014

ANTIOCH, Calif. — A police officer shot and injured a man who resisted being detained Monday morning, according to police. The shooting was reported at 8:51 a.m. at a home in the 4100 block of Folsom Drive, said Fire Marshal Robert Marshall of the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.

Officers were dispatched to the area regarding a rifle found in the street, according to police.

Police said in a statement that an officer arriving on the scene "eventually had an encounter" with a man and attempted to detain him.

The man fled from the officer and headed into an open garage, according to police.

Police said at some point while the officer tried to detain the suspect, he opened fire, striking the man several times. The man was taken to John Muir Medical Center with gunshot wounds. Police said he was responsive at the scene but that an update on his condition was not immediately available.

The officer who shot the man is a police veteran and was uninjured, according to police.

Police said the shooting is being jointly investigated by Antioch police, the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office and the county Crime Lab, following standard protocol in an officer-involved shooting.

The 'Dirty P.I.'
Judgment Day

Posted: Tuesday, Sep 25, 2012 6:37 PM PST | Updated: Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012 3:14 PM PST

Oakland, CA -- A former Antioch police officer and private investigator (pictured above, center) was sentenced Tuesday afternoon to eight years in prison following a high-profile string of arrests that disgraced the Contra Costa County California Narcotic Enforcement Team last year. U.S. District Court Judge Saundra Armstrong in Oakland also ordered Butler to pay a $20,000 fine. Butler, dressed in a tan jail jumpsuit, choked up as his sentence was handed down.

Video: Former police commander Norman Wielsch and private investigator Christopher Butler engaged in an illegal drug deal. The video shows Wielsch and Butler selling (to government informant Carl Marino) a pound of methamphetamine stolen from a police evidence locker.

"I want to apologize to the community for the anxiety, fear and suffering I caused," Butler said. He also apologized "to the law enforcement community for the embarrassment and betrayal inflicted on it." He added a final apology: "I apologize to my family and friends who supported me through all of this."

Butler's sentence was much stiffer than what his associate received. Former San Ramon police office Louis Lombardi was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in the CNET scandal. Lombardi plead guilty to stealing $40,000 in cash and guns while serving search warrants.

The sentencing follows his guilty plea in May to six charges, including extortion, robbery and conspiring to deal drugs. His probation officer recommended more than 12 years in prison. Butler had achieved some fame by hooking a reality TV show contract and hiring "Mommy P.I.s," attractive women whose job was to lure men into cheating on their wives. And in court, he admitted to bribing a Contra Costa County sheriff's deputy, Stephen Tanabe, with cocaine and a gun to make drunk driving arrests of men he was investigating. These have since been dubbed, "dirty DUI" stings, and Butler has earned the nickname, the "Dirty P.I."

Butler testified to a lot: He admitted setting up a massage parlor, which provided sexual services.

And he testified that former squad commander Norman Wielsch (pictured below, center) gave him marijuana and steroids, which he then gave to a colleague at his private eye firm. He also said he drove Wielsch to various spots where they took 586 grams of methamphetamine from evidence lockers. One of those pounds, he said, sold for $9,800. He admitted to taking $30,000 worth of drugs. Wielsh and Tanabe have both pleaded not guilty to similar charges. The drug team, known as CNET, was disbanded last February.

Texas Christian University!

(17 students at Texas Christian University on Wednesday as part of a six-month drug sting)

FORT WORTH, Texas – Authorities arrested 17 students at Texas Christian University on Wednesday as part of a six-month drug sting, an especially embarrassing blow to the school because it included four members of the high-profile football team. Arrest warrants painted a startling picture of the Horned Frogs, with a handful of players who allegedly arranged marijuana sales after class or around practice and who told police that most of the team had failed a surprise drug test just two weeks ago. "There are days people want to be a head football coach, but today is not one of those days," coach Gary Patterson said in a prepared statement. "As I heard the news this morning, I was first shocked, then hurt and now I'm mad."

According to police, players sold undercover officers marijuana during the season and as recently as last week. The 17 people arrested were caught making "hand-to-hand" sales of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs to undercover officers, police said. They said the bust followed an investigation prompted by complaints from students, parents and others. The bust came just one day after a thrilling overtime victory by the men's basketball team over a ranked opponent and less than 24 hours after TCU released its football schedule for next season, its first in the Big 12 Conference. TCU has an enrollment of about 9,500 students, but the athlete arrests drew the most scrutiny.

Three prominent defensive players on the team were arrested: linebacker Tanner Brock, the leading tackler two seasons ago, defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey and cornerback Devin Johnson. The other player is offensive lineman Ty Horn. Phone messages left at the homes of Horn, Johnson and Yendrey were not immediately returned. Brock did not have a listed home number. All of the players are 21 except for Yendrey, who is 20. Brock was being held on $10,000 bond at the Mansfield city jail. Johnson and Horn were being transferred to the jail on Wednesday afternoon and Yendrey had not been arraigned.

In November, a Fort Worth police officer was informed that Horn (pictured left) was selling marijuana to "college students and football players at Texas Christian." The officer allegedly bought marijuana that day, Nov. 3, two days before a road game at Wyoming, from both Horn and Yendrey. Officers during the next several months allegedly set up drug deals with the players outside restaurants, a grocery store and other areas around campus. On Jan. 19, Brock allegedly sold an officer $200 worth of marijuana after Yendrey (pictured below, left) ran out. "After a short conversation about the marijuana, Brock and I exchanged phone numbers, telling me to come to him from now on instead of (Yendrey)," according to the affidavits.

Horn and Johnson scoffed at the Feb. 1 team drug test ordered by Patterson, police said. Brock allegedly told an undercover officer that he failed the surprise test "for sure," but that it wouldn't be a problem because there "would be about 60 people screwed." Horn had looked through the football roster and "said there were only 20 people that would pass the test on the team," Brock said, according to the warrant. And six days after the test, Johnson allegedly sold an officer $300 worth of marijuana. Asked about the test, he said: "What can they do, 82 people failed it." In response to that allegation, TCU cornerback Kolby Griffin posted a tweet on his personal account Wednesday that read, "This rumor about 82 of us failing a drug test is false completely false."

TCU released a statement late Wednesday afternoon that said the school tests its athletes for drug use "on a regular basis." "The comments about failed drug tests made by the separated players in affidavits cannot be verified simply because they were made in the context of a drug buy," the school said. Patterson declined to answer questions beyond his prepared statement.

While school Chancellor Victor Boschini said he didn't think TCU had a "football problem," the arrest affidavits raise the possibility that other players were involved. Boschini called the charges against all the students "simply unacceptable." Fraternity members were among those arrested, though Boschini said he didn't think any whole fraternity houses were at fault. "Today's events have changed the life of everybody at TCU," Boschini said. Police said they had yet to determine if other football players were involved or would be charged.

Officials said the students had been "separated from TCU" and criminally barred from campus, but it wasn't clear if the players had been kicked off the team. But their names had already been removed from the football roster posted on the school's athletic website. "I expect our student-athletes to serve as ambassadors for the university and will not tolerate behavior that reflects poorly on TCU, the athletics department, our teams or other student-athletes within the department," athletic director Chris Del Conte said. "Our student-athletes are a microcosm of society and unfortunately that means some of our players reflect a culture that glorifies drugs and drug use. That mindset is not reflected by TCU nor will it be allowed within athletics."

Brock was the leading tackler for TCU as a sophomore during the 2010 season, when the Horned Frogs went 13-0, won the Rose Bowl and finished the year ranked No. 2. Brock started the season opener at Baylor last September, but aggravated a foot injury that required season-ending surgery. Yendrey started 12 of 13 games this past season, when he had 39 tackles and three sacks. Johnson played in all 13 games, starting the last eight, and had 47 tackles with 2 1/2 sacks. Brock likely would have been a starter again in 2012. Yendrey, who also started five guys as a junior, and Johnson both were juniors last season and had another season of eligibility. Horn appeared in 10 games this past season, making one start. He played in eight games as a freshman.

"Under my watch, drugs and drug use by TCU's student-athletes will not be tolerated by me or any member of my coaching staff," Patterson said. "I believe strongly that young people's lives are more important than wins or losses. He added: "At the end of the day, though, sometimes young people make poor choices. The Horned Frogs are bigger and stronger than those involved."

Another One!

March 6, 2011

A deputy sheriff with the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office was arrested Friday on suspicion of possessing and selling controlled substances, a spokesman said. Stephen Tanabe, 47, of Alamo, was arrested at 9:30 p.m. after investigators discovered he might have been keeping and selling drugs, according to a statement from sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee. Tanabe, who had been with the sheriff’s office for four years, faces charges of conspiracy to possess and sell controlled substances, and possession and transfer of an assault rifle, according to Lee. His arrest was part of an ongoing investigation into the state Department of Justice Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team, or CNET. Authorities did not elaborate on the details of the alleged offenses, but a statement from the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Department said Tanabe's arrest was the "result of the ongoing investigation into the state Department of Justice Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET)."

Tanabe was placed on administrative leave, and he is being held at the Martinez Detention Facility with a bail of $260,000, according to the sheriff’s office. A law enforcement source close to the investigation, who asked not to be named, said agents are looking into whether Tanabe was hired by a private investigator in connection with a scheme to arrest men for drunken driving in an effort to blemish their records in hotly contested divorce cases. The source said officers in as many as four Bay Area departments are now being scrutinized for their ties to the investigator, Christopher Butler, 49, to see if they also made arrests at his orders. Two former employees of Butler, who asked not to be named because of fear of reprisals, said he was often hired by women who wanted to create a criminal record on their ex-husbands. If the man was involved in a contentious divorce and custody battle, a DUI conviction could hurt his chances for winning custody. Butler paid the officers in cash for an arrest, the ex-employees said.

Investigators are now reviewing two arrests made by Tanabe (pictured above, center) in early January, according to the law enforcement source close to the probe. In both cases, men were invited to meet at The Vine, a popular wine bar on Danville's Hartz Avenue. After drinking with a Butler-hired decoy, according to the law enforcement source and former employees of Butler's, the men drove out of the parking lot and were quickly stopped and arrested by Tanabe. Tanabe worked patrol in Danville through a contract with the city and the sheriff's office.

At Wednesday's arraignment for Wielsch and Butler, when they pleaded not guilty, Deputy District Attorney Jun Fernandez described the ruse he said was orchestrated by Butler to get the men he was investigating arrested.

Fernandez said Butler hired decoys, usually attractive women, to make passes at the men and suggest they meet for drinks at a local bar. In other cases, Butler used male decoys, including his employees, who posed as journalists or documentary filmmakers who wanted to conduct lengthy interviews with their subjects over drinks. In each case, Butler would call his officer contacts and give a description of the male target, the car he was driving and the moment he left the bar. After the man drove from the parking lot, the officer would fall in behind and arrest him.

Butler is a central figure in the CNET investigation. He was arrested Feb. 16 with his longtime friend Norman Wielsch. Both were charged with 28 felony counts connected to the theft, possession and sale of methamphetamine, marijuana, steroids and prescription pills. Authorities said Wielsch, the former commander of the Contra Costa County Narcotics Enforcement Team, stole the drugs from evidence lockers and passed them along to Butler, who found buyers through employees at his investigations firm.

Butler was released from jail Friday after making bail. Wielsch also is out on bail.

All three men - Wielsch, Butler and Tanabe - are former Antioch police officers who worked in the department in the late 1990s.

A spokesperson for the Contra Costa County district attorney's office did not return calls seeking comment after Tanabe's arrest. The arrest is the third connected to the Department of Justice's investigation into the multiagency narcotics task force known as CNET.


February 16, 2011

The commander of a Contra Costa County drug task force and the head of a high-profile, Concord-based private investigations firm were arrested Wednesday on allegations they conspired to sell drugs, authorities said. Norman Wielsch, commander of the Central Contra Costa County Narcotics Enforcement Team, and Chris Butler, who runs the P.I. firm Butler and Associates, were booked into County Jail in Martinez on Wednesday on scores of suspected offenses including possession and sale of marijuana and controlled substances, embezzlement, second-degree burglary and conspiracy.

Wielsch (pictured below, center) is being held on $660,000 bail. Butler (pictured above, center) is being held on $840,000 bail.

Both men are former veteran officers with Antioch police from the late 1990s before they entered their respective positions.

Marvetia Wins!

January 31, 2011

ANTIOCH, CA -- The city has agreed to pay a former San Francisco police inspector $750,000 to settle a federal civil rights lawsuit. Marvetia Lynn Richardson sued Antioch in U.S. District Court in July 2008, saying Antioch officers illegally broke into her house on Mokelumne Drive in June 2007, shocked her with a Taser after a dispute with a tenant she was evicting, and took her to jail on suspicion of resisting arrest.

Antioch has denied any wrongdoing, saying the police department had probable cause to enter Richardson's house and did not use excessive force in making an arrest. The lawsuit also contended that the incident was part of efforts by Antioch police to harass African-American residents and drive them out of certain neighborhoods, a charge the city also denies. Attorneys for Richardson and Antioch declined to comment on the settlement, which prohibits them from discussing the terms.

The decision to settle a case is often made by joint risk pools for public agencies rather than by the defendant itself -- particularly when significant attorneys' fees are included, City Attorney Lynn Tracy Nerland said in a written statement.

"Such settlements reflect economic realities rather than any change of position or belief on the part of the defendant," she said.

Police were called to Richardson's home after midnight on June 7, 2007, by Bridget Reed, who was renting rooms for herself and teenage daughter and was in the process of being evicted. Reed had called 911 to complain about noise; Richardson was at home entertaining two female friends and their children.

After talking to Richardson inside the house, the officers were outside when they heard screams and loud sounds indicating a struggle or fight, according to court documents. Reed and her daughter ran outside, saying that the teen daughter of one of Richardson's guests had threatened to shoot them.

Richardson says officers broke down her front door, and confronted her as she stood in her bedroom doorway. She was calmly answering officers' questions when she was suddenly shocked with a Taser, according to the lawsuit.

Charges against Richardson were dismissed in 2008 after a Contra Costa County judge ruled that police entered the house illegally, according to the lawsuit. Richardson is scheduled to be in Contra Costa Superior Court in Pittsburg at 8 a.m. Feb. 7, 2011 to petition the court to find that she was factually innocent. "She wants it erased so it's as if it never happened. She is and has been the victim," said Richardson's criminal attorney who did not represent her in the lawsuit.

A lawsuit by Richardson in San Francisco County Superior Court alleging she was wrongfully fired -- in part because of the Antioch incident -- is ongoing.

Feds Sanction Murder Again!

January 29, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Five members of the Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team have been cleared of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a 29-year-old Antioch man during a drug sting in 2008. San Francisco U.S. District Judge Susan Illston ruled Wednesday in a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by Timothy Wayne Mitchell Jr.'s family that CNET member and Pittsburg police Officer Les Galer had "an objectively reasonable fear of death" and "committed a justifiable act of homicide" when he shot Mitchell on March 11, 2008. Galer, his identical twin, Phil Galer, CNET Commander Norm Wielsch, and Officers Sean Dexter and Louis Lombardi were each defendants in the suit.

The attorney for Mitchell's parents, Timothy Sr. and Paulette, said Friday that he had not had a chance to read through the judge's decision, but he was "inclined to disagree with it." "I think there's a considerable amount of evidence in the case that shows the officers placed themselves in a difficult and dangerous situation and behaved with recklessness and foolishness," said the attorney, part of the John Burris law firm. Further, depositions given by the officers in court were "demonstrably false," and inconsistent with the physical evidence, he said, adding there were no eye witnesses to support the plaintiff's case.

A tip from a confidential informant that Mitchell had been selling marijuana out of his apartment and kept a sawed-off shotgun prompted CNET officers to get a warrant to search Mitchell's residence. The team believed that Mitchell had an extensive criminal record, though it turned out that a criminal had stolen Mitchell's identity and Mitchell himself had no record. Later, the officers found a small amount of marijuana and a handgun in Mitchell's bedroom.

The officers converged on Mitchell's apartment at 7 a.m. and knocked and called out before they forced their way in. Les Galer was first to enter and immediately came in contact with Mitchell, dressed in his underwear. Galer said Mitchell grabbed his wrist beneath the gun he was holding and, thinking he was trying to take the weapon, he fired. A jury at a coroner's inquest ruled the death accidental. The Mitchells alleged in their lawsuit that the officers' search warrant was unreasonable and created unnecessary danger to their son, and officers themselves were not properly trained or supervised. It is uncertain if an appeal to the decision will be filed, Yourke said.

The officers' attorney said the judge recognized that under federal case law, an officer may fire a weapon to protect his own life if he concludes a suspect intends to shoot them. "Each of the officers sincerely regret Mr. Mitchell's passing, but there was no question Detective Galer was acting in defense of his life when he discharged his weapon," said the attorney. "Detective Galer is an outstanding officer. People forget sometimes that police officers are members of our community who have a very difficult job and charges of this type are very difficult for them in every sense."


A True Racist Court System Exposed!

Reasonable Force: Shot in the Back!

Galer History!

April 23, 2005

[T]he retirement dinner for Sgt. Bob Canchola of the Pittsburg Police Department was interrupted by an officer-involved shooting and the aftermath of an officer being shot and killed in the line of duty. On Saturday, April 23, 2005, Officer Larry Lasater of the Pittsburg Police Department passed away after being shot by a suspect. Two suspects had robbed a Wells Fargo Bank inside of a Raley’s grocery store, then highjacked a vehicle, and as they were fleeing from the scene, they crashed the car. After crashing the stolen car, they then fled on foot. Lasater’s and Officer Florence’s units were the first to arrive on the scene, and they parked their vehicles at the entrance of an access road between Los Medanos College and a county building.

The officers moved along the northern edge (right side) of the trail with their guns drawn. Florence indicated that at one point he saw and heard Lasater move into an area that was overgrown with trees and brush with his gun pointed in a downward direction and yelled “show me your hands.” Immediately, four or five shots rang out. Although Florence was in an area where he was himself very vulnerable since he had no idea where the suspects were located, he nonetheless continued to move forward toward Lasater in an attempt to discern his location and his status. As he approached, he eventually could see that Lasater was lying on his back and had suffered a gun shot to the neck. At this time Officer Galer arrived.

Immediately after Lasater had been shot, Florence had put out over the radio that shots had been fired. When he finally observed Lasater lying on the ground, he also put out an 1199 over the radio, “officer down”. But, the other responding officers could not discern the officer’s whereabouts. Obviously, it was critical that the officers be able to describe their exact location. Galer ran to the intersection of Desrye Boulevard and Belle Drive and put the cross street out over the radio. At that moment, he observed his brother, Les Galer, traveling directly at him on Desrye Boulevard and approaching Belle Drive. After he announced his location, Phil then ran back along the trail to assist Florence. At the same time, Officer Les Galer turned off of Desrye Boulevard onto the trail and crashed through a locked gate on the trail. Eventually, he stopped within a few feet of Florence to provide him with cover. It was at that point that the officers took cover behind Les Galer’s patrol vehicle. Les Galer was armed with his AR-15.

Officers Phil Galer and Florence decided to move away from the patrol vehicles toward the location of Lasater. After traveling a distance of approximately five-to-15 feet from the vehicle, one of the suspects began firing shots from their location in the overgrown vegetation. It was at that point that Les Galer returned fire with his AR-15 and, at the same time, Phil Galer and Florence dropped to the ground and attempted to return to the vehicle for cover. Phil Galer also returned fire as he crawled back to the patrol car.

Eventually, a suspect came out from the brush area. A verbal exchange occurred and the suspect indicated that he did not shoot the officer, but that the other suspect had done so. He pointed back in the bushes and said something to the effect that “he had done it.” The suspect was placed into handcuffs and taken to a patrol vehicle. Shortly after Lasater was taken from the scene, the officers at the scene learned that the Antioch Police Department had taken the second suspect into custody several blocks away from where the shooting occurred.

Officer Les Galer was in Lasater's police academy class and was back on the trail with his former classmate when Lasater was shot to death, allegedly by one of the robbery suspects. On Monday, Galer remembered his friend and fellow officer at a funeral at the Chronicle Pavilion in Concord that was attended by 4,000 people, including 2,500 law enforcement officers from around the state and scores of Marines saying goodbye to one of their own. When his police SWAT team recently checked into a hotel during an assignment, Lasater didn't go out socializing with colleagues. He went shopping for Cody at a nearby Babies R Us, Galer recalled.

'Routine Traffic Stop'

News Update!

September 15, 2009

C.A.T. Claws!

Low-income African American renters suing the city of Antioch for allegedly trying to drive them out of federally subsidized housing say a new study backs up their charge that police targeted them for special patrols and pressured landlords to evict them. The federal court suit was filed in July 2008 as a proposed class action on behalf of about 800 African Americans living in Section 8 housing in Antioch, where blacks make up about 15 percent of the city's 100,000 residents. City officials reacted to a near-doubling of the black population in five years by forming a squad of police that searched their homes illegally and warned landlords they could be held responsible for tenants' misconduct. The report by criminologist Barry Krisberg said Antioch's police Community Action Team, established in July 2006 to patrol high-crime neighborhoods, has disproportionately concentrated on subsidized Section 8 housing for the poor, and even more so on black tenants. The police squad "claims to focus on quality-of-life issues regardless of housing status or race, but it actually focuses on Section 8 households and their African American residents," said Krisberg, president of the National Council on Crime and Delinquency, a private research organization. Krisberg's study covered mid-2006 to the start of 2009, during which Section 8 households amounted to about 6 percent of Antioch households and 24 percent of renters. During that time, the study said, 48 percent of the households designated by the police Community Action Team for enforcement activity were occupied by Section 8 tenants. African Americans made up 56 percent of the Section 8 households and 68 percent of those designated by police for contact, the report said. The study also found that police were more likely to send letters to landlords, warning of liability for tenant misconduct, in Section 8 households than in others, and much more likely to refer black households to the county Housing Authority for alleged crimes than non-black households. However, the Housing Authority was much less likely to find grounds to remove African Americans from Section 8 housing than tenants of other racial backgrounds, Krisberg said. C.J. Note: Illegal and highly toxic meth labs are showing up in suburban California neighborhoods. Crystallized methamphetamine hydrochloride is an extremely dangerous type of amphetamine. Similar to the effects of cocaine, methamphetamines are powerfully addictive stimulants that speed up heartbeat, breathing and brain activity. Chronic use can result in a psychosis that resembles schizophrenia. Characterized by paranoia, the user often picks at his own skin and experiences other erratic and/or violent behavior and hallucinations. California accounts for 85-percent of total U.S. methamphetamine production. Once relegated to rural areas, meth labs are now showing up in more and more suburban areas, crossing economic and social boundaries. According to the Department of Toxic Substances Control, Contra Costa County has become a hotbed of meth production in Northern California, with more than one hundred labs seized each year since 1998. That adds up to a major environmental and health hazard. Officials in Contra Costa County have even recounted tales of chemicals being poured over a fence into a children's play area. All of this illicit toxic waste eventually winds up in waterways via rainwater run-off. The following chart was last modified January 21, 2009. Past year methamphetamine use among whites (0.7 percent) and Hispanics (0.5 percent) was higher than among blacks (0.1 percent) or Asians (0.2 percent). Can someone please explain why the C.A.T. focus is on African-Americans in Antioch? There is not a crack epidemic in Antioch, there is a Methamphetamine epidemic in Antioch (Contra Costa County). Meth is 100 times worse than "Crack."

Garrido - 18

August 29, 2009 Antioch, CA -- Sex offender, Phillip Garrido and his wife, Nancy kidnapped Jaycee Lee Dugard, age 11, in 1991. Evidence indicates that for the duration of the last 18 years Jaycee Lee was held captive in Antioch, California. In a non-descript home in Antioch Garrido held Jaycee Lee captive, fathering two children by her with what appears to be active complicity from his wife. At the time of the abduction, Garrido was on parole for a crime he committed just 15 years prior. On Nov. 23, 1976, Garrido, 25 and living in Reno, Nevada was arrested for kidnapping, rape and sexual assault of a twenty-five year old woman from South Lake Tahoe. Law enforcement found him with the woman in a small warehouse. The warehouse was furnished with rugs on the floors and walls, adult magazines, sex toys, wine, hot water, and a spotlight. Garrido was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for kidnapping and transporting his victim over state lines, and from five to life on a state charge of sexual assault. On parole for a violent sex offense, California Parole officials failed to adequately supervise Garrido. It is obvious no parole searches of his home were ever conducted. Garrido was able to hold captive, an 11-year old girl, for a period of 18 years, without question or challenge by Antioch Police Department, Contra Costa Sheriff's Department, or the State of California. In fact, in 2006, upon being summoned by a concerned neighbor, the Contra Costa Sheriff's department dispatched a deputy to Garrido's home where Jaycee Lee was being held captive.
The Antioch Police Department and the Contra Costa Sheriff's Department finds themselves involved in federal civil litigation for the harassment of African-American homeowners and renters in the City of Antioch. Did the fact that Mr. Garrido is Caucasian have anything to do with his ability to escape detection for 18 years?. After all, Mr. Garrido was a parolee subject to 24 hour search clauses by law enforcement, or state parole officials.

Front row from left: Officer Megan Miller (Lifesaving Award) and Corporal Will Dee (Lifesaving Award). Allegations of Racism seem to follow Chief Hyde January 18, 2010Update! The San Francisco Police Department has quietly fired a veteran inspector - the first officer to be dismissed from the force in more than four years - for a litany of misconduct that included lying about an incident in which Antioch police fired a Taser at her. Inspector Marvetia "Lynn" Richardson, 42, was fired after a closed-door hearing of the Police Commission last month, but the panel made no announcement at the time. City officials confirmed Richardson's firing in response to inquiries from The Chronicle. Richardson worked for the department for 15 years, most recently in the fraud unit. She had been suspended without pay since 2008, when then-Chief Heather Fong accused her of 11 disciplinary infractions. Three of the counts stemmed from a June 2007 incident in which an Antioch police officer used a Taser to subdue her in her home on the city's Mokelumne Drive. Officers were answering a call about someone making threats at Richardson's home. When they arrived, Richardson allegedly ordered them to leave, became belligerent and refused commands to show her hands, prompting the officers to use the Taser, according to the department's charges. She also refused to sign a citation for allegedly resisting arrest. In November 2008, Richardson sued the Antioch police chief, the officers involved and the city, saying they had violated her civil rights by using the Taser wrongfully. The case is scheduled to go to trial in federal court in San Francisco this fall. Before she filed her suit, however, San Francisco police officials concluded Richardson had lied about the incident in explaining it to the department's internal affairs unit. Richardson, they said, told internal investigators that Antioch officers had never warned her they were intending to fire the Taser. They said an audio recording made by officers on the scene contradicted her story. The department also accused her of misusing the police records system in 2007 to track down and send a letter to a woman, telling her that her husband was cheating on her. Richardson apparently was interested romantically in the woman with whom the husband was having the affair, according to the disciplinary charges. The husband intercepted the letter and filed a complaint with the city. Other charges alleged that Richardson had negligently cashed several stolen checks given to her by her tenant as rent, amounting to a total of nearly $26,000. The tenant stole the checks from his parents, according to the charges. Richardson said she did not know the checks were stolen, but the department maintained that as a fraud investigator she should not have accepted checks from a third party. Richardson was also accused of sick time abuse. She allegedly called in sick 29 times over the course of a year but failed to file paperwork that would ensure the time off was recorded as sick leave. An attorney for Richardson, has argued that some of the charges were unfounded and others were lodged too late to comply with the one-year statute of limitations for disciplinary cases. He did not return calls last week seeking comment. Richardson also did not return calls seeking comment. She is the first San Francisco police officer to be fired since Officer Anthony Nelson was dismissed in October 2005, after he was found to have lied about his use of force on an anti-war demonstrator whose arm he broke during a 2003 demonstration. Previous story As of November 11, 2008 a San Francisco police inspector has filed a federal civil rights suit against the city of Antioch, saying a[n] Antioch police officer shocked her with a Taser during a confrontation in her home where she was trying to evict a tenant. Inspector Marvetia Lynn Richardson, 41, a 14-year San Francisco police veteran who is now on unpaid leave from her job, said Antioch officers broke down her door last year, stunned her with a Taser and then took her to jail when she demanded to write "Tasered" on a citation for resisting arrest. Richardson, who is black, said the incident was an outgrowth of Antioch police efforts to enter homes without warrants to harass and drive African American tenants out of federally subsidized housing. Richardson owns her home and [does] not receive [any] housing assistance. Antioch police referred to Richardson during the incident as the "alleged homeowner" and "this so-called SFPD lady," the suit said. The suit [has been] filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. The city has denied any wrongdoing, saying officers acted appropriately while investigating reports of threats of violence against residents at the home. Judge Charles Treat of Contra Costa County Superior Court dismissed the resisting-arrest charge in June, saying the [Antioch] police entry into Richardson's house was illegal. [On July 16, 2008] five African-American women filed a class-action lawsuit against the City of Antioch, charging that the city and its police department are targeting African-American tenants in town and subjecting them to a campaign of harassment and intimidation," said Brad Seligman from impactfund.org. One of the five women is Mary Scott. "He pushed in my house comes in and rambles thought my items finding things to give Section 8," said Scott. Scott says an Antioch police officer searched her house with the intent of finding something that would get her disqualified from her Section 8 housing subsidy. The same officer showed up at her hearing before the Housing Authority. "He tried to say that I had a bad landlord," said Scott. Most notably, the Antioch Police Department has no enforcement authority in the Section 8 housing program. "Is it their job or their responsibility to enforce Section 8 Housing codes?" asked ABC7's Mark Matthews. "No, Section 8 is a program run by the Housing Authority the Contra Costa housing authority," said Antioch City Attorney Lynn Tracy Nerland. Antioch Police - Reality Notice all the Antioch Cops are White or White Hispanics
The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, names the city of Antioch, Police Chief James Hyde, Sgt. Thomas Fuhrmann and Officers Santiago Martinez Jr. (stars in above video), Jason Vanderpool and Jason Joannides. When officer Martinez takes his uniform off, he runs the risk of being "racially profiled" by Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE). Gary Gilbert - UNCLE TOM All the Antioch Police Offiers are White, however there's an Uncle Tom in every crowd. (The following video contains audio only and a still photo of Mr. Gilbert. There is not technical malfunction with your computer.)
"Gilbert is an African American is also a retired Corrections Officer with the state's prison system. He says the Antioch police chief would never discriminate against anyone. But the story is complicated by the fact that the chief of police James Hyde is a former police chief in Davis California, where he did have a reputation of civil rights violations brought about by that city's Human Rights Commission." Note: In the above video, Mr. Gilbert uses the term "safe neighborhood". In real estate jargon, "safe neighborhood" means "white neighborhood". It is a racially discriminatory term used to convey to Whites that the community in question is a white community.
