Officials defend response in Red Line stabbing – latimes.com

August 23, 2011

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/08/stabbing-red-line-subway-1.html

Sounds to me like the LASD has nothing to defend….. This is the first fatal incident since 1993…. These Deputies were 10-97/on scene four minutes after the train stopped…. The Detectives that are handling this case are working on identifying the outstanding suspect from a surveillance tape…..

As a citizen of Los Angeles County, hearing about this sort of response to this type of an incident fills me with pride. Its an obvious display of dedication, committment, and professionalism.

The LASD is getting kind of a bad rap right now. They’re being accused of racial bias out in the Landcaster. Ive read a few of the articles written about whats going on. It reminds me of cases and complaints past.

This is the best, most ironic thing: I also read an article recently  about the Lancaster Burglary Team that is being commended for making a huge seizure of pot and arrests based on Deputies literally smelling the weed!

Ya know, Ive known a few Deputies and worked with a few Deputies in my time…. I feel safe at night because of them and their caliber!


Insurance Commissioner Jones Announces Sentencing of Los Angeles Attorney for Insurance Fraud

This is great news! We as consumers need more convictions like this. The fiscal impact of insurance fraud is horrible. We’re all paying for it….

Now, I have to make this comment. That Attorney is not the only Lawyer on the block that is involved in anything like this. I know of one in Encino, CA that does the same thing.

Another problem that I see is the economics of criminal prosecution. You see, in Los Angeles County, unless you have a huge dollar amount involved, that woyld potentially be noteworthy in the media, you will mot get your case for insurqnce fraud filed with the D.A. for prosecution. It doesnt matter if its a staged accident ring, an owner give up theft scheme, durable mwdical goods, or a medical mill (to name a few). If the case does not involve a dollar amount that will A.) Bring the D.A. good press, or B.) Have a high enough dollar amount that would easily justify spending the money to take the case to trial, and then C.) Is a complete slam dunk of a cas with all corpus fulfilled and everything easily proven beyond a reasonable doubt…. It just aint gonna get dealt with here in L.A.

Thats pretty tragic! The way I see it, enforcement of the law is not about prestige and fame. Nor is it about how much it costs.  Neither is it about a higher probability that the prosecuter will obtain a conviction.

Its about doing the right thing and protecting the citizens of the State of California.

You dont seek fame for doing that job. You do whatever it takes at any and all costs. And you dont need it spoon fed to you. You work hard and do the absolute best you can at your job!

Ive met some good D.A.’s – dont get me wrong. But, it seems to me that there are those that are more concerned about the politics involved.

I have met a lot of great Investigators at Dept. Of Insurance CDI, and some true experts on the topic in the Insurance industry. My hat is off to them, and they deserve everything!

Here’s novel idea: Maybe the D.A.’s office should step out of the way and let the folks in the trenches do their jobs! Then the D.A. should do theirs-present the evidence, make the arguement, and get the conviction. Hhmmm?

Los Angeles County Jail Inmates Engaging in New Phone Fraud Scam

Los Angeles County Jail Inmates Engaging in New Phone Fraud Scam

Posted: 18 Aug 2011 10:17 AM PDT

Beware – inmates who are incarcerated in the Los Angeles County jail are targeting random members of the public with a new phone fraud scam. Inmates are calling people and yelling “Emergency!” while a recorded warning plays that states the call is from an inmate so that the receiver of the call cannot hear the warning.

The inmate then states that he works at the jail and has information about a loved one that has been injured or arrested and tells the victim to call a sergeant for more information. This is where the “prank” call turns into fraud and ends up costing the victim. The inmate instructs the victim to dial *72 followed by a phone number, the number of which is usually to a girlfriend or a fellow gang member. *72 is actually a code that transfers a call to the phone number that follows it.

Inmates then make calls to that number without the victim’s knowledge at the expense of the victim. And because collect calls are so expensive, victim’s phone bills can total thousands of dollars before they even become aware of the issue.

Law enforcement urges anyone who appears to be a victim of this scam to hang up and call their local sheriff’s department.

Sheriff’s headquarters to move from Monterey Park to Downtown L.A.

Okay, I have not posted in a few days because, frankly, I have’nt seen or heard anything noteworthy.

However, this is!

My first experience with the Los Angeles County Hall of Justice was as a kid when I went there to see my Dad receive a special commendation from the then Sheriff, Sherman Block. My Dad, myself, and family were driven there by my Dad’s Commander. When we arrived we exited the car near the front door. I looked up and saw the huge old building and the words, “Hall of Justice” on the marquee. As a kid it was like seeing the “bat cave.” For me, it was like  going to the “holiest of hollys.”

Some years later I would return there myself as a “8 hour early morning shift visitor” with “H.O.J.J.”…the Hall of Justice Jail. I never saw the jail my first time around. Its a dark, dank, rat infested jail with low ceilings. Its an old jail with steel bars and tiers. It had a different smell than LA County Men’s Central Jail down the street…. It has back hallways for the Deputy assigned as the “prowler” would appear from…. It was a scarey place!
