Legitimate Rape–They’re not fucking kidding


 

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

Pundits are trying to figure out what Missouri Republican U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin meant, what he could possibly have been thinking, when he discussed so-called “legitimate rape” in a television interview.  The comment was so outrageous, the first thing that actually crossed my mind was that Todd Akin must be related to Kevin D. Akin, thinking back to when Kevin explained his support for the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.  In a way, Czechoslovakia got raped by Russia and there’s Kevin justifying what happened and applauding it.

That said, this whole issue of why male chauvinist pigs (MCPs) split hairs about what is and is not “real” or “legitimate” rape is not new.  Case on point from a leaflet that has been distributed at the last couple of Los Angeles Slutwalks and other events by the Same Page/Misma Pagina Coalition:

In 2006 Los Angeles Sheriff Detective Jeff Spelatz told students at Los Angeles City College that70-80% of rape reports are illegitimate” and that most women who report rape have a “morning after slight.” He also said reports were from women “who drank too much and regretted what they did the night before.”

 In spite of what Detective Spelatz said, he didn’t get disciplined. Instead, the students who protested his outrageous statement were suspended by the Los Angeles Community College District. In spite of demands from the Same Page/Misma Pagina Coalition to the LACCD Board of Trustees, the district has failed to cancel its contract with the Sheriffs Department or seek removal of Detective Spelatz from their campuses.

Barri Falk-Fabulous Feminist

Let’s turn the page back to 1990.  Republican Representative Carlos Moorhead, one of the congressmen so stupid that he backed Richard Nixon till the end on the House committee considering impeachment resolutions over the Watergate scandals, had voted against then Representative (now Senator) Barbara Boxer’s legislation to fund abortion for poor women impregnated by rape or incest.  San Fernando Valley/Northeast Los Angeles Chapter of the National Organization for Women, led by then President Barri Falk (now active with NOW in New York, one of the best feminists I’ve ever had the privilege of serving with) announced that we would picket Moorhead’s community forum at Glendale High School.  We were quickly joined in the picket by the Glendale chapters of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), Business & Professional Women (BPW), and the League of Women Voters (LWV).

Carlos Moorhead–note the resemblance to Mad Magazine’s Don Martin character, “Carbuncle,” of Fester & Carbuncle fame?

After we went into the community forum, Barri and I were both able to get questions in to Moorhead about his position on women’s right to choose.  When it was my turn, I told Moorhead something along the lines of ‘as a long time supporter of the victims bill of rights, how can you justify voting against Barbara Boxer’s bill to fund abortion for victims of rape and incest, when that effectively means that a woman might have to exercise her right to confront her rapist at a sentencing hearing when she’s nine months pregnant and showing?’  I didn’t mince words.

Moorhead goes on this long, rambling, hesitant and majorly idiotic explanation of his views that frankly made him sound semi-senile.  This was the clincher:  “well, that bill even included funding for spousal rape, and that’s just when a husband gets a little too aggressive with his wife.”

Are you fucking kidding me?  Unfortunately no, he wasn’t kidding, but in spite of our having hundreds of witnesses to the statement, his staff tried to deny to the press that he made it, even though his staff refused the press access to him to answer personally.

I was so furious I ran against Moorhead on the Peace & Freedom Party ticket.  I spread that statement all around the district.  Proving once again, as the founding president of the Newspaper Guild (AFL-CIO, CLC, CWA) Heywood Campbell Broun once said, that “a liberal is one who leaves the room when the fight begins,” Democratic Party nominee David Bayer refused to use this issue against Moorhead.

Addition 8/21/12:  Now it comes out that sure as shit, Todd Akin also opposed criminalizing marital rape, saying about legislation to do just that, criminalizing marital rape gives women “a legal weapon to beat up on the husband” during a divorce.

The Show

PI’s Declassified http://www.pisdeclassified.com

Thursdays @ 9:00 am Pacific Time, 12:00 Eastern Time:  Jan B. Tucker on 8/23/12; upcoming, Joe Paolella 8/30/12

I’ll be the guest of one of the most distinguished private investigators in the world, Francie Koehler, former president of both CALI (California Association of Licensed Investigators) and NCISS (National Council of Investigative & Security Services) on August 23, 2012 on her PIs Declassified Internet radio show on the Voice America Variety network.  My great friend Joe Paolella will do the following week’s show on August 30.  My topic will be “Especially Heinous,” taken from the intro to NBC’s Law & Order Special Victims Unit about sex crimes.  I’m currently working on a chapter of my book under that label and I’m telling my unbelievable and incredible war stories about every sick sex crime I’ve ever encountered, starting with three cases involving “Zoophilia.”  The name of that perversion should be intriguing enough, but look it up in Wikipedia.

The average police officer, prosecutor, private dick, or private attorney will probably never see a case of Zoophilia (or “bestiality” if you will) in their entire career.  Not even animal control officers are likely to ever encounter it.  I’ve dealt with it three times, along with:

  • Necrophilia
  • Pederasty
  • Sadomasochism
  • Urolagnia
  • The “Prince Albert Cut”
  • Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

So, if you have a weak stomach, don’t tune in.  The word Heinous means very evil, reprehensible and/or abominable….and what I’m going to present is so Especially Heinous that it will make what you see on Law & Order SVU seem like the sandbox.

Letter from Chicano Political Prisoner Ramsey Muniz


 

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

After spending more than 15 years confined and imprisoned in one of America’s hard core prisons (Leavenworth USP), I was also confined in the so-called ancient dungeons of Leavenworth for 3 years for advocating “human rights” in the prisons of America. I became so ill and close to death, so I was taken by emergency ambulance to Springfield Federal Hospital. As I have shared with Irma, I had an out of body experience of death and life again. Immediately they sent me from Springfield, Missouri, to Florence USP — another hard core penitentiary.

It was there that by the grace of God, after having communicated with Dr. Andres Guerrero in Leavenworth,  that Dr. Guerrero personally visited with Senator Ken Salazar who made an immediate congressional request that I be transferred to Three Rivers Federal Correctional Institution.

It was after 15 years — after the Bureau of Prisons violated the federal court order that I be confined in Three Rivers FCI — that I was finally transferred to Three Rivers FCI as the judge had recommended.

The staff at Three Rivers immediately did not like the idea that a so called Mexican American, Chicano political prisoner was sent to their institution. They claimed that i needed medical attention that they were unable to provide, and I was immediately transferred back out to El Reno, Oklahoma.  Knowing what had happened, I demanded, upon my arrival, a doctor from the free world who would give me a full medical examination. I knew that there was nothing wrong with me since I was not even taking medication and had never ever gone to the hospital even for an aspirin.

The doctor in El Reno, Oklahoma made the medical findings that I was in perfect health and had nothing wrong with me. I immediately asked to be transferred back to Three Rivers FCI. Instead they transferred me to Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution, which is known to be gang related.  In this institution we are lock down half the time.

The world needs to know how they have violated every constitutional right that I have. They also violated the order of the Federal Court that I be confined in Three Rivers FCI. If some doubt my words of truth, Irma has a copy of the sentencing transcript where the Federal Judge Brown specifically ordered and recommended that I be confined at Three Rivers FCI. This is the type of injustice that I speak of and have suffered because many refuse to accept the truth as to what they have done to my life for the last 20 years.

The time has come to let the world know that enough is enough – ya Basta!!! We must have the heart and the courage to come forward and bring justice to a Mexicano who has given his life for freedom, justice, and love for our people and for all humanity.

God’s greatest gift to us from the time of our creation is freedom!

Amor,
Ramsey Muniz

************************************************************************

Ramsey Muniz was the most successful statewide candidate in the history of the La Raza Unida Party (LRUP), ever, period.  In Texas, where he ran for Governor in 1972 and 1974, he shook up the powers that be by taking just a tad less than 7% of the vote in 1972.

In 1974 I was doing my requisite internship in my Field Work in Barrio Studies course at CSU Northridge (CSUN) with LRUP in San Fernando, California (a required course to complete my secondary major in Chicano Studies and I was getting additional independent studies credit in Political Science).  I was also running for State Senator at the time against Democrat Alan Robbins.  Ramsey came out to San Fernando, spoke to a packed hall, and impressed me to this day as one of the most dynamic orators I’ve ever heard in my life.

Subsequently, he was subjected to federal scrutiny (in those dark days of COINTELPRO), first stripped of his attorney’s license for supposedly conspiring with his criminal defense clients and later convicted and jailed in a highly suspect trial, resulting in a life sentence.

Wade Michael Page-Alcoholic?


 

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

From our sponsors: Wisconsin alcohol addiction centers;  http://drugabuse.com/usa/alcohol-abuse/wisconsin/

Wade Michael Page

One thing that jumps out from a cursory look at Wisconsin murderer, neo-Nazi, and white supremacist Wade Michael Page is that he was probably an alcoholic, based upon his multiple convictions for DUI:

  • In 1994 Wade Michael Page was convicted of a “Class A Misdemeanor” in Houston Texas County Court, but I don’t have any details on the offense yet
  • In 1999 he was convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Denver County Court, Denver Colorado
  • In 2010 he was convicted of Driving While Impaired (DWI) in Harnett County, North Carolina

In the mid-2000s Page was reported living in the City of Orange in Orange County, California.  In 2002 he was apparently ticketed in a traffic stop in Orange County.

UPDATE 8/7/12:  Looks like my prediction based on Page’s criminal record was correct.  It’s now being reported that his 1998 discharge from the United States Army was in part based upon a pattern of behavior which included his being drunk on duty.  This raises the question of whether and what the armed forces do regarding alcoholics in their ranks.  I don’t have a clue.  Maybe there are great programs or maybe they just kick them out without treatment and a chance for rehabilitation; or maybe somewhere in between.  Either way, it’s an important question that should be asked and explored….because maybe a different response by the Army could have changed his life and saved the lives of people in Oak Creek, Wisconsin in the process.

Anaheim & Policing-Reform or Revolution?


 

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

The policeman isn’t there to create disorder.  He’s there to preserve disorder.” — Richard J. Daley, Mayor of Chicago, 1968

July 30, 2012

Mayor Tom Tait, Mayor Pro Tem Harry S Sidhu, P.E., Council Member Lorri Galloway, Council Member Gail E. Eastman, Council Member Kris Murray

City of Anaheim, City Hall 7th Floor, 200 S. Anaheim Blvd, Anaheim CA 92805

 Honorable Mayor Tait and City Council Members:

I am writing in my official capacity as State Director of the California League of Latin American Citizens (CALLAC), an affiliate of the National League of Latin American Citizens (NLLAC). Aside from that official status, please take note that I have been a private investigator since 1979, licensed since 1983, and served an unprecedented seven terms as Chair of the Board of the world’s largest organization of private investigators.

I am writing so that Anaheim, in considering whether or not to establish a civilian oversight board or commission in connection with the current well publicized events overtaking your city, not make the mistakes that other cities have made in the past. Cities such as Inglewood and Dinuba, when faced with highly publicized allegations of police misconduct and the concomitant litigation that inevitably results, have adopted a boiler plate ordinance establishing a police commission at the recommendation of their City Attorneys. I suspect that city attorney associations have bandied about this boiler plate proposal at continuing education seminars as the best band aid solution for the public relations aspects of the problems that need to be solved.

Unfortunately, other than dealing with short term P.R. difficulties, this boiler plate ordinance has never accomplished anything else.

Essentially, the ordinance that cities wind up adopting creates a council appointed commission which must utilize police to investigate police and whose ultimate sole authority is to make a confidential report to the City Manager. After a few years of experience, those appointed to the commission wind up publicly criticizing the whole process as useless and wondering what they are accomplishing by participating it.

In response to the Donovan Jackson video-taped beating by Inglewood Police Officers the Inglewood South Bay NAACP Branch requested that I review and comment on the ordinance which that city was in the process of adopting. My response was to predict the basic problematic toothlessness of the law, the fact that it was peacemeal “reform” rather than comprehensive reform, and wrote a real comprehensive proposal to counter it. That proposal is the Model Ordinance for Civilian Oversight of Police Misconduct, which you can download from the internet at:

http://www.sfvnow.org/files/Model_Ordinance_for_Civilian_Oversight_of_Police_Misconduct.pdf

The Model Ordinance deals with more than just Public Relations. It addresses real protection for legal and constitutional rights, protections for rank and file police officers and whistle blowers, treats both the community and rank and file officers as stakeholders in the process of police reform and oversight, and provides real good faith protection for the interests of the municipality in loss prevention.

I am requesting that Anaheim establish a committee or commission to study the Model Ordinance, conduct public hearings on the issues it raises, and to then consider the proposal as a whole or at least upon the individual components that can be implemented by consensus or with widespread support. I will be happy to participate in the process and to recommend experts who can provide additional information to assist the fact finding and policy formulation process.

Respectfully Yours,   Jan B. Tucker, State Director, CALLAC

Note for readers:  This request is also endorsed by Angel G. Luevano, as National Vice President of NLLAC

James Eagan Holmes–the Statistical Angle


 

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

There is an interesting statistical angle to the strange case of accused Aurora Colorado mass murderer James Eagan Holmes, but it’s not about how many people died, how many were wounded or how many rounds of ammunition he was able to buy over the internet and have delivered to the University of Colorado.  Before I get to that, let me point out that I know zip about statistics.   I double majored for my B.A. in Political Science and Chicano Studies at CSU Northridge (CSUN) and later combined both disciplines to complete 22 units (with a 4.0 GPA) towards an M.A. special major before dropping out to become a private investigator.  As a graduate drop out myself with a 4.0 GPA in some ways I wonder about James Holmes and how he dropped out of an otherwise distinguished academic career.  To get my Political Science B.A. I had a choice between one of two requisite courses:  I could either take basic statistics or basic logic.  Having had no college/university level mathematics courses whatsoever (I got as far as Geometry in high school and had no comprehension past construction or loci; when it got to Trigonometry I got very clueless), I chose Logic over Statistics.

Looking back on that fateful decision, I wonder now how my life might have been different if I’d chosen statistics.  I chose logic and studied under the eminent Ancient Greek Philosophy Professor (and personal friend) Dr. Bill Jacobs.  Combined with my friend and mentor Dr. Phil Wall in Political Science, who chose to teach us our required Methodology course from the perspective of Philosophy of Science rather than from a statistical orientation, these two courses have had an enormous influence on my belief system and my way of interpreting the world and explaining it to others throughout my life.

I bring this up because Trinidad born Robert Milton Holmes Jr, James Eagan Holmes father, is an eminent statistician who got his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley after being mentored there by equally eminent Romanian born statistician Dr. Peter John Bickel.   He is a long time member of the American Statistics Association (ASA).   The elder Holmes writings include:

Contributions to the theory of parametric estimation in randomly censored data by Robert M Holmes (Book) — this was his 1981 Doctoral Dissertation at Cal Berkeley

James Holmes parents, Robert and Arlene Rosemary Holmes, are roughly my age.  The father was born in 1950 and his mother a year before me in 1954.  In a tiny small world parallel, they used to live in the neighborhood I grew up in, Arleta, just two blocks away from my family home (literally, .24 miles away and 38 seconds drive according to Mapquest).  This was for a couple of years just before James Holmes was born.

James Holmes himself is beginning to look more intriguing, if MORE is possible, with the discovery of his posting on “Adult Friend Finder,” which is a very “ADULT” only dating site in the sense of being semi-pornographic.  He was advertising himself to be looking for anything from one on one to group sexual adventures.  He apparently went into the site as recently as three days before his alleged shooting spree.  Two items in his profile are really intriguing:  on both “smoking” and “drugs” he answers that he prefers “not to say.”  ?????WTF?????

What he’s not saying may speak volumes.  Is Prefer not to say on smoking a code  for marijuana rather than tobacco?  Drugs?  Prefer not to say sure sounds like “Yes but I’m not putting that out in public.”

Anyway, the final statistical analysis about James Holmes behavior that matters the most in this debacle is from the Book of Daniel, 5:25-28:  Mene, Mene, Tekel, U-Pharsin.  The writing on the wall.  “It has been counted and counted and found wanting.”

Xenaro Ayala-Adding Injury to Insult


 

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

 

Real “men” don’t get in each others’ faces

Yesterday at the National Chicano Moratorium Committee meeting Xenaro Ayala, representing his faction of La Raza Unida Party (LRUP), waited until the end of the agenda when the only appropriate things to be discussed were announcements, and went into a rant about his objection to my being present at NCMC meetings because I had insulted him, his son Ernesto, his daughter Libertad, and supposedly, his sister, Estela. Demonstrating what everybody who knows him well is aware of, that he lacks impulse control and that he’s a male chauvinist pig, he accused me of not being a “man” because I had not made my accusations against him and his family to his “face.” He’s upset that I have put everything out in public in my blogs.

The first rule of prevarication is, don’t lie when the truth is easily ascertainable.

An important point about what Xenaro said yesterday:  at no time did he ever call me a liar or claim that what I’d said about him was untrue.

The thing that’s easiest to clear up is whether or not I have ever said anything insulting about Estela. The only thing I have ever said about Estela in my blogs that might conceivably be construed as an insult is this; you be the judge:

 I won’t let them disrespect you (famous last words)

A few facts for background.  When my now ex-significant other very early on in our relationship told me some of the family history, she made what I considered was a solemn representation and promise:  she would not let her family insult and disrespect me the way that they had insulted and disrespected her ex-spouse.  I have to admit that with her ex-spouse that he probably deserved it.  As she pointedly said in her speech at the 2010 National Chicano Moratorium rally (a speech which I was then and remain very proud and touched that she made), pointed out that she had been raped and abused during her marriage.  It took great courage for her to get up and say that publicly.  I just wish that she’d had more courage to stand up to her family about me and about us.

I won’t shake a rapist’s hand and I won’t give one the time of day, whether it is spousal rape, date rape, or stranger rape.  I certainly can’t see a person who purports to support the rights of La Mujer even being civil to somebody who had done that to his sister.  But I have seen Xenaro do precisely that to his other ex-brother-in-law.  He’s shaken his hand and accepted a pat on the shoulder from that pig….well, I guess it’s what you expect from one MCP (Male Chauvinist Pig) to another.  Either Xenaro is a hypocrite of the worst order, or else he really is an MCP despite his public pretensions.  As for shaking the hand of a rapist and spousal abuser, well that brings up the next issue.

[FROM: http://janbtucker.com/blog/2011/10/21/never-do-anything-against-conscience/ AND YOU SHOULD READ THE ENTIRE BLOG FOR CONTEXT]

ADDING INSULT TO INJURY

That blog reveals a number of the insults that I had to endure. Here’s another one that I haven’t made public before.

The Ayala family is very well aware that I am just as active in the African American community as I am in the Chicano/Latino community. It is no secret that I have served as a branch officer or committee member in three different NAACP Chapters and that my late significant other (who died in 2004) had been the Southern California Legal Redress Chair for the NAACP and a prominent criminal defense lawyer. It is also impossible for the family not to know that my late significant other’s godson and my godson is African American since he is together with me in my Facebook Profile Photo.

Before Xenaro’s lack of impulse control (as pointed out in the blog linked above) led him to rant and rave about blonde blue eyed Anglos at an NCMC meeting, perhaps the family somehow got the impression that it’s okay with me to engage in racist behavior relative to Black people in my presence because my skin color is white. On at least three occasions that are ingrained into my memory are how, both in my presence and Xenaro’s presence, Ernesto and his primo engaged in these extremely offensive conversations in Negro dialect which can only be characterized to people of my age as “Amos ‘n Andy” routines.

As I’ve previously pointed out in the above cited blog, I sat there and took it. I was of course seething inside, but because I’ve got more impulse control than the Ayala family, while I was in their homes I didn’t make an issue of it….and for that I am ashamed of myself. For this I owe an apology, not to the Ayala family as perhaps Xenaro believes, but to my god-son, all of my African and African American friends, and to all my friends who expect more of me than to remain silent in the face of racism.

Most importantly I owe an apology to my father. If my father had heard me engage in the kind of behavior that Ernesto engaged in – which Ernesto seems to think is funny – my dad would have at first calmly explained why the behavior was wrong. If I’d persisted, he’d have smacked me and I would have deserved it.

XENARO BROUGHT THIS ON HIMSELF

Aside from the fact that Xenaro lacks impulse control and loves confrontation, Xenaro’s complaint that I should have told him stuff to his face and not through blogs is entirely a problem of his own making:

http://janbtucker.com/blog/2011/10/24/my-bad/

As I pointed out, on September 26, 2011 I got an email from Libertad Ayala telling me not to email her or her father, Xenaro. When any reasonable person gets an email like that, it is intuitively obvious that they don’t want any communication with you. So, if I’d continued to email them without their consent, they’d have had grounds to seek a restraining order against and me and justifiably so. So exactly what was I supposed to do?

Since Xenaro thinks that to be a “man” I should have said these things to his face, I suppose I could have telephoned him. Oh, wait a minute. His daughter told me not to email either of them, so a reasonable and intelligent individual would think twice about that because that also might have been grounds for them to charge harassment in a restraining order.

Then again, since Xenaro somehow expects me under the circumstances to confront him face to face to be a “man,” I suppose I could have showed up at his door…..uh, except that would justifiably be called stalking once I’d been told to stop contacting him by Libertad.

Well, what to do? Oh, there’s this communication methodology called a blog in which I get to exercise my rights under the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of California and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and because, unlike Xenaro, I have impulse control, that’s what I use to warn the world about him and his cult.

Sandusky-Tip of the Iceberg


 

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

Louis Freeh & Jan B. Tucker

The national scandal involving Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno and the powers that be at Pennsylvania State University, as brilliantly exposed by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, is really the tip of the iceberg in terms of how educational and other governmental institutions as well as corporate America deal with sex crimes and sexual harassment.   In 2011 alone the Department of Defense tallied up 3,192 service member related reported sexual assaults.  Many people don’t wind up even reporting sexual assault in the military because of the military’s traditional way of handling these crimes.

Years ago San Fernando Valley/Northeast Los Angeles NOW (National Organization for Women) held a forum in which a former Naval Aviator was drummed out of Annapolis.  She told us of how, after she reported being raped by a football player, she was investigated under the theory that she was a Lesbian because she didn’t enjoy having forced sex with a male.  At one time at least, this was routine practice for the military academies after they finally starting allowing women to attend.

Families have a tendency to sweep things under the rug as well when it comes to family members who molest others in their family.  Trayvon Martin might still be alive if George Zimmerman’s family had reported him for sexual assault.  According to a video tape recently released publicly by the court trying Zimmerman, a female cousin has alleged that he started molesting her when she was six years old, that it continued for years, and that he’d molested at least one other family member.  She contends that when the family confronted him, all he did was say he was sorry and then walked away.  She also exposed Zimmerman as being a racist who repeatedly bad-mouthed African Americans.

For years I have been cognizant of stories concerning rape and attempted rape on college campuses being swept under the rug.  When I was at CSU Northridge (CSUN), a certain individual that many of my Mechista colleagues and companeros will remember (he was so notorious that I don’t have to mention his name as everybody will know who I’m talking about) was well known as a serial rapist.  After he attempted to rape a friend of mine from the Political Science Department, I told the story to Rudy Acuna, who confronted him in public in front of a crowd by the Chicano Studies office in the Sierra Building.  Rudy recounted the story of what he’d done and then accused the culprit of being “a cocksucker by proxy” [email me privately {pi@janbtucker.com} if you want to know the details, but the full story will come out in a chapter of the memoir I'm currently working on; the chapter is entitled Especially Heinous and is about every sick sex crime I've ever investigated].  The guy ran out [those who know who it was will know that it's odd that he ran], went home, got his gun and was coming back to shoot Rudy when he was intercepted by a couple of guys who calmed him down.

Nobody could ever figure out why the police, both CSUN University cops and the Los Angeles Police Department, always buried his alleged rapes and that he’d never been arrested or charged.  Many people did suspect however that this professional student, who’d been at the University forever without ever completing a degree, was simply a police informer whose rapes were a tolerated behavior for spying on the Chicano Studies Department.  Years later, when I became a private investigator, I asked a retired LAPD CCS (Criminal Conspiracy Section) Detective point blank whether this individual (by name) had been one of their informants.  He responded, “no, he didn’t work for us.  He was working for PDID,” referring to the LAPD’s Public Disorder Intelligence Division (i.e., the “red squad”) which was the LAPD’s discredited forerunner of the Anti-Terrorist Division.

Rape did not even begin to be taken seriously by law enforcement until women started coming out of the closet as rape victims.  The feminist movement had to reorient America’s (and the world’s) thinking about rape victims being survivors who should not have to feel ashamed that they did not die in the process of their attack or commit suicide as slaves to some bizarre sense of “honor.”  All these years later, when we at least had begun to think that these crazy ideations were a thing of the past, we have had to hold “slutwalks” to remind people that there is no excuse for rape [http://janbtucker.com/blog/2011/06/06/new-face-new-wave-of-feminism/] under any circumstance.

What I find really galling is that the leadership of my own party, the California Peace & Freedom Party [PFP], the first political party to declare itself to be a feminist party ever, has so completely deviated from its feminist principles, that the leaders welcome into its  ranks registered sex offender Steven Bruce Orcutt aka Frank Runninghorse [his fake Native American wannabe alias] who I have repeatedly exposed:  http://janbtucker.com/blog/2011/09/03/commentaries-on-sex-offender-frank-runninghorse/.  Most recently, Orcutt declared an apparent solidarity action over the death of his fellow sex offender, 19 year old Kenneth Harding who pulled a gun on pursuing police.  The officers who were pursuing Harding were initially only after him for BART fare evasion…which would likely have resulted in his getting a cite and release misdemeanor ticket…so it is a kind of aberrant and potentially a dangerous situation for a police officer when somebody flees from such a minor situation.  As it turned out Harding was recently released from Washington State prison custody where he’d served time for a sex offense and was being sought in connection with the murder of a pregnant woman after his release.  What can I say about Frank Runningdog’s support for this miscreant?  Maybe Runningmouth’s thinking is, Rapists of the World Unite, You Have Nothing to Lose but Your Shames!

 Come out of the shadows, there is no shame

Nothing is going to change, nothing is going to get better in all these spheres of life, corporate, social, or governmental, until women who have been subjected to rape in those institutions expose what happened to them, especially if it happened in relation to an educational institution which ignored it, swept it under the rug, or otherwise covered it up.  If you feel that you have no where else to go and nobody else to speak to about your situation, whether it happened 20 years ago or 20 minutes ago, then report it to me at pi@janbtucker.com.  Report whatever you feel comfortable reporting to me.  If you want to remain anonymous, then let me know the facts and I will do what I can to see to it that it doesn’t happen to somebody else at the same institution.  If you want to tell all and get help in taking on the powers that be, I’ll do whatever I can to help.

Remember:  Sisterhood is Powerful.  We have come a long, long way on a long, long road to equality and liberation and we have a long road to travel on still.  Reporting your rape is a very long step and it is a necessary one.

For background on this series, check out:  http://janbtucker.com/blog/2012/05/25/banksters-2/

Here’s an example of a mortgage company getting caught red handed in what appears to be Robo-signing.  In an investigation of a document filed with San Bernardino Superior Court by the Law Offices of Randall Naiman (San Diego), the signatures are not just bizarre, but not even similar, for the same person, Mark Armstead (Vice President of Chase Home Finance LLC):

 

In California, a declaration under penalty of perjury is required by Section 2015.5 of the Code of Civil Procedure to state the place (i.e., the City or County and State) where the document is signed.  This is especially important when there is a contention that a signature is a forgery.  The requirement enables an investigation into where a signer was at on a particular date to determine if it was even possible for that person to sign the document.  Note that in both cases above (the first in California and the second in Pennsylvania), neither signature identifies where it was signed….conveniently for Chase Home Finance.

In spite of the defect and the fact that it is intuitively obvious that the signatures on these documents don’t match, the Chino Superior Court Judge who heard U.S. Bank’s motion for summary judgment granted it against the homeowner, enabling her eviction.  I have sent copies of these documents to Attorney General Eric Holder, California Attorney General Kamala Harris and I will soon be sending a copy to San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis (where the Chase Home Finance office was located and where the signature was theoretically signed) and to San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael A. Ramos.

If justice means anything in this matter, somebody should be going to jail….but I’m not holding my breath.

National Chicano Moratorium–August 25 2012

Check out the back story on the National Chicano Moratorium Commemoration at:

Yesterday at the NCMC (National Chicano Moratorium Committee) planning committee, my motion to invite Kiko Salazar of the National Ramsey Muniz Defense Committee was passed unanimously by consensus.  The basics of what Ramsey Muniz’s case is all about is at:

http://janbtucker.com/blog/2011/12/06/ramsey-muniz-guilty-of-being-latino-and-activist-in-america/

The NCMC Commemoration, as usual, will deal with the unfortunately business as usual aspects of the United States (E.E.U.U.) that spawned the Moratorium over four (4) decades ago:

  • Racism, Sexism, and all other ideologies of oppression
  • War, then in Vietnam, now in Afghanistan
  • Systematic discrimination in education, health care, employment, and virtually every other sphere of human existence

There are many other things to commemorate on August 25….the liberation of Paris from the Nazis in World War II, Uruguayan Independence from Brazil (a fight during which Garibaldi first formed his “Red Shirts,” who would go on to fight for Italian unification and independence), the beginning of the Belgian Revolution for independence from the Netherlands, and the birth of two famous American private detectives, Allan Pinkerton and Jan B. Tucker.  On August 25, 2012, the place to be and the place to commemorate those who fought for those who’ve been imprisoned for, and those who died for Chicano liberation will be at Ruben Salazar Park, 3864 Whittier Blvd, East Los Angeles.
