Guest Opinion | Bill Paparian: Vote for Gascon – Pasadena Now

According to a recently published analysis, police unions have donated $2.2 million dollars to committees and organizations supporting Gascon’s opponent. One million dollars of that has come from the Los Angeles Police Union.

And, that’s just the start. Police organizations are expected to pour in as much as $5 million dollars more to make sure George does not win. Just last week statewide police unions poured another $1 million into the race.

Will it make a difference?

Not when it comes to George’s values. They’re not for sale. That’s why I urge you to join me in supporting George Gascon for DA on November 3.

Bill Text - AB-3070 Juries: peremptory challenges.

Signed into law by the Governor of California today:
This bill would, for all jury trials in which jury selection begins on or after January 1, 2022, prohibit a party from using a peremptory challenge to remove a prospective juror on the basis of the prospective juror’s race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, or religious affiliation, or the perceived membership of the prospective juror in any of those groups.

Upon objection, the bill would require the party exercising the challenge to state the reasons the peremptory challenge has been exercised. The bill would require the court to evaluate the reasons given, as specified, and, if the court grants the objection, would authorize the court to take certain actions, including, but not limited to, starting a new jury selection, declaring a mistrial at the request of the objecting party, seating the challenged juror, or providing another remedy as the court deems appropriate. The bill would subject the denial of an objection to de novo review by an appellate court, as specified

New California law strikes criminal court fees charged by sheriffs, police

“The criminal legal system disrupts people’s lives and families in so many ways that adding financial penalties sets people up for failure when we should be setting them up for future success. By eliminating fees, we’re paving the way to more resilient communities.”

The fees can keep people in debt long after they’re released from jail

Grocers push tougher theft penalties

Proposition 20 would allow thefts of property worth more than $250 to be punished as felonies, which could increase the amount of time people convicted of shoplifting crimes serve. It would also create two new crimes: serial theft and organized retail theft, which could also be charged as felonies and result in time of up to three years.

The judge had just told Beinlich he was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences in prison. He would not be eligible for parole for 81 years.

Murder case dismissed against California man who served 25 years

A friend of the victim who was standing next to him when he was shot told police the driver of the Blazer wasn’t the shooter. But Jimenez’s lawyer — who has since been disbarred — never presented that and other evidence of Jimenez’s innocence at trial, according to a court petition filed by his lawyers last year.

In Wednesday’s ruling, the judge said the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office conceded that Jimenez was “deprived of the assistance of constitutionally effective counsel.”

A California man who spent 25 years in prison for a 1994 killing had his murder conviction dismissed Wednesday because the court said he didn't receive a fair trial.

Anaheim Police Officer Charged With Lying About Traffic Stop Search

An Anaheim police officer has been charged with searching a car during a 2018 traffic stop - without the driver's consent - and then lying about it under oath. Dillon Adam Avila, 28, was charged Friday with one felony count each of filing a false police report and lying under oath, the Orange County District Attorney's Office reported Friday. According to prosecutors, in April of 2018, Avila and his partner pulled over a car and asked the driver if they could search it.

The officer testified in court that the driver had consented to the search even though bodycam footage proved he in fact had not, prosecutors said.

My earliest memories of my Father are from National Holidays like Memorial Day. Veterans Day, and the Fourth of July. I was really young, not more than 8 or 9 years old. Our house on Greenleaf Street in Sherman Oaks had a long front porch. There was a bracket on the center post to hold the American Flag.

Rather than memories of my Father playing catch with me, or pushing me in a swing at the park, or holding my hand for a walk on the beach, my earliest memories are of my Father teaching me proper flag etiquette: never let it touch the ground; always bring it in before dark; display it proudly on National Holidays.

Ever since the pandemic hit and we have been ordered to stay home our flag has been displayed in front of our home in Pasadena every day. And on this Independence Day we will display it proudly. This photo is of my second son, Aram, putting up the flag in the morning. We haven't forgotten Dad, we never let it touch the ground and always bring it in before dark.

Happy Independence Day. God Bless America.

This is a very fine Police Officer.
05/28/2020

This is a very fine Police Officer.

“I’ve thought long & hard about making this post, because I’m going to get hate for it either way.
But if I don’t say something, who will?”

This is one of the most honest posts I’ve ever seen from a police officer.
Her name is Officer Marissa Rutherford.
And here’s what she wrote:

I’m a white woman, & I’m a police officer.
I love my job, I love my coworkers, & I love my department.

And I’m blessed to work alongside some fantastic people.
But I’m not inattentive to what is happening in other departments & throughout this nation.

And I just have to say:
I’m SICK and TIRED of racial injustices.
I’m tired of other irresponsible police officers.
I’m tired of poor & improper training.
I’m tired of unethical use of excessive force.
I’m tired of lazy decision making.
I’m tired of discreditable use of discretion.
I’m tired of seeing racial divides.
And mostly I’m tired of the inability of other officers to hold their colleagues accountable & to see that these are ONGOING ISSUES.

If you’re a police officer and these issues I’ve touched on are not disturbing to you, you ARE the problem.

We swore to serve and protect EVERYONE.
Not just people who look like you and live like you.

How dare you call yourself a “peace maker” when you’re condoning indecorous & unethical actions in your work place.

How dare you, when you’re not fighting for justice for the voiceless.

I hate to admit that I was ignorant in believing at one point in time that all of this racial profiling stuff was blown out of proportion.
It’s not, it’s real.

It’s 2020 and racism still exists far worse than one can imagine.
Racist police officers STILL exist.

Fact of the matter is, it will never be completely eradicated.
There will always be racists.
But, there is simply ZERO room for that as a first responder.
We don’t get to pick and choose who we help.

If you’re a medical professional or LEO who is racist, sexist, homophobic or has any bias that would prevent you from helping a person, or even worse, create a reason for you to harm them, do me & society a favor and get the hell out.

Hand in your badge, hand in your gun because you have no business working alongside the greater good.

For those not educated in police training, & not to many’s surprise, kneeling on a person’s neck, or back is an unsanctioned means of subduing a person.

It’s fair to say, not every law enforcement officer is given the same exact training.

Experiences & education vary from instructor to instructor. When going through defensive tactics training, this was repeatedly drilled into my head. & even if not, thankfully I have enough common sense to know that kneeling on a person’s neck could easily restrict their air flow.

Especially when they’ve already been handcuffed.

Training in this field does not & should not stop.
For those that need to revisit any training courses, do so.

Learning proper technique is crucial, clearly.
One mistake & your career is over & you’ve made a regretful decision that you will forever have to live with and be judged by.

We need reform, love & compassion.
We need GOD.
Thanks to a very small percentage of thoughtless, negligent officers, the job for a majority of GREAT law enforcement officers becomes even more of a danger every day.

Like your skin that has made you a target, our badge becomes a target.

My question now is, how far off are we from #RodneyKing ?
And to my colleagues, what are YOU going to do in your community to enhance the safety & security of the very people that depend on you every day?

Black lives matter.
Blue lives matter.
Every life matters.
And until we come to that agreement as a society, we will never be at peace.

The war is not won.
We have work to do.
I will not be at ease until I see to it that those officers are charged for the grievous murder of GEORGE FLOYD.

I’m a white woman & yes, I’m a police officer.
But before that, I AM HUMAN.
To my fellow brothers & sisters in Law Enforcement, stay safe & God Bless

—-Officer Marissa Rutherford.

It took a lot of guts to write what she did.
I’m really proud of her
I can only hope that it leads to honest discussion about the death of George Floyd.
He should not have died.
Period.
