California League of Latin American Citizens in collaboration with the National Brown Berets de Aztlan and the Brown Beret National Organization is assisting the ELA Bobcats Youth Football & Cheer organization to keep from becoming just like California Bobcats — an endangered species.
Since October 2012, the office of Supervisor Gloria Molina in collaboration with the LA County Sheriffs Dept and the County Parks & Recreation Dept have been trying to shut down the ELA Bobcats Youth Football & Cheer organization which has provided youth sports at Salazar Park since 1968. The pretext is because of a fight at a Shakey’s Pizza in Monterey Park in October 2012 between two adults (one of whom was from Bakersfield) that had nothing to do with the Bobcats organization or its program.

While that may be an implausible pretext, a more compelling “coincidence” is that on February 16, 2013 Gloria Molina and other politicians kicked off the grand opening of their long planned ELA Sheriffs “Youth Activity League Center” as a tool to allow the LASD to control youth after-school programs in the area and channel children into being law enforcement explorers and/or community snitches.

Sal Castro–teacher supporter of the 1968 ELA Student strike made famous by the movie “Walkout,” now represents the First Supervisorial District on the County Parks & Recreation Commission. Download our petition to him from the “Files” function at the above linked FB page or Email callac@janbtucker.com (California League of Latin American Citizens) for a PDF copy of our petition to him which reads:

To: Sal Castro, First District Commissioner,
Los Angeles County Parks & Recreation Commission

While we understand that the role of the County Parks & Recreation Commission is advisory only, we request that the Commission conduct an independent investigation into the revocation of the Bobcats Youth Football reservations for the use of Salazar Park, a facility we have used for decades. We want the Commission to investigate and publicly report on the following issues that we suspect are at the bottom of the actions taken against the Bobcats: (1) the racial, ethnic and class profiling of the youth and parent participants by the Sheriffs Department, (2) monetary motivation of the Sheriffs Department to have the parents pay for extra non-necessary security services, (3) monetary motivation to force parents to pay for new uniforms when none are necessary.

Independent Investigation of Sri Lanka Atrocities

For Immediate Release: February 13, 2013

Tamil Groups Welcome UN Rights Chief’s Call For
Independent International Investigation in Sri Lanka
London/Toronto/Washington D.C.
The British Tamils Forum, the Canadian Tamil Congress, and United States Tamil Political Action Council acknowledge the Report by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, which emanates from United Nations Human Rights Council Resolution 19/2. While welcoming High Commissioner Navanethem Pillay’s continuous commitment to human rights in Sri Lanka, the use of the Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) as a framework against which to measure progress is a grave mistake. The LLRC’s fundamental and well-documented flaws preclude its position as the authoritative institution regarding accountability in Sri Lanka.
   High Commissioner Navanethem Pillay reaffirmed: “her long-standing call for an independent and credible international investigation into alleged violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, which could also monitor any domestic accountability process.” The strength of the High Commissioner’s recommendations underscores the seriousness of the human rights situation, and adds to the volume of credible reports undertaken by the United Nations, including the Secretary Generals Panel of Experts Report and the UN Internal Review on the failings of the UN in Sri Lanka.
   “The evidence is mounting, and the reports are repetitive: Sri Lanka cannot evade international scrutiny by seeking more time and space. The Human Rights Council should therefore implement the recommendations of the High Commissioner, by resolving to establish a Commission of Inquiry at the forthcoming session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva,” stated Dr. Yaso Natkunam, spokesperson for the United States Tamil Political Action Council.
   “The High Commissioner’s report contextualizes the failure of the Sri Lankan government to meaningfully address its breaches of international human rights and humanitarian law,” concluded Dr. Natkunam. “This report is a strong step forward, and demands stronger, more progressive action on Sri Lanka. It can, and must be used as an opportunity to bring about a more constructive resolution on Sri Lanka based on the principles of accountability, reconciliation, and human rights.”
   The British Tamils Forum, the Canadian Tamil Congress, and United States Tamil Political Action Council are Tamil organizations operating in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States respectively.

2012 Top Criminal Justice BlogsJust learned that I ranked #19 of the top 30 Criminal Justice blogs at this website:

http://www.top-criminal-justice-schools.net/top-30-criminal-justice-blogs-of-2012

Also, I’m quickly closing in on 500,000 pages hits.  At November 30, it had taken me from 2006 to get to 400,000, so here’s a big thank you to all my readers because hitting half-a-million in so short a time since then is a major adrenalin rush for a self-admitted “intensity junkie.”

You won’t be able to find my most recent piece, The Fed’s Vendetta Against Aaron Swartz, because that’s published in Counter Punch’s February 12, 2013 email edition: CounterPunch Vol. 20 No. 2a Digital Exclusive.  In it’s pages, you see exclusive comments from my friends Neil Broom and Kevin Mitnick.  Neil of the Technical Resource Center of Atlanta, Georgia currently serves on the Ethical Standards Committee of the International Society of Forensic Computer Examiners (ISFCE) and the National Leadership Assembly of the American Society of Digital Forensics & eDiscovery (ASDFED). Additionally he is the past Chairman of the Digital Evidence Subcommittee for the International Association for Identification (IAI) and has been a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association.  Kevin was once dubbed the most wanted hacker in the world when he led the Feds on a wild ghost chase until they caught him and threw him in solitary confinement.  He’s now a computer security professional.

Counter Punch is well worth the subscription price of $35.00/year for the email edition, so check out the website at:  http://www.counterpunch.org/

Chris Dorner: Please surrender, I have a team ready to assist


 

By signing up, you agree to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

CHRIS DORNER, please surrender. I’ll help you. I have a team ready to assist.

This is real. It is not just a publicity stunt and yes I know it’s dangerous, but having been shot at over the years by everybody from the Nazi Party to the Jewish Defense League and having been threatened in the last few years by a Hungarian Mafia crime family and the Jerusalem Network of the Israeli Mafia, I’m used to danger even though I’m quite realistically afraid.

I’ve done this once before when I took a couple of bank robbers in a high publicity case into custody and turned them over to the FBI so I know the drill. Once may not seem like a lot of experience, but then this is a rare kind of event so it’s not like anybody in the private sector that you can trust has any experience at this.

You’ve probably never heard of me before but just Google me and you’ll understand why you can trust me and trust my judgment. Amongst other things, I’ve been a private investigator since 1979 and licensed since 1983. I served an unprecedented seven (7) terms as Chair of the Board of the California Association of Licensed Investigators (CALI), the world’s largest private eye organization, more than twice as long as anybody ever served as President or Chair. I’m currently a Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a Commentator for Black Talk Radio network.

I have put together a team to effect a surrender to insure that you (and all of us) stay alive—hopefully. I have two other private investigators lined up (one ex-LAPD and one ex-Secret Service) and two reporters ready to assist.

There are numerous ways to reach me:

Tel: 213.787.5476

Fax: 310.618.1950
