ALERT! Inglewood Officer Alvaro Ruiz Seemed to be Following Me!

Officer Ruiz standing at the Bus Stop on Crenshaw & Manchester Blvd in Inglewood, CA on November 9, 2010

Now, normally I wouldn’t say anything but this is to be noted.

On November 9, 2010 I was leisurely riding the MTA bus (public transportation) and the bus did its normal stop at the intersection of Manchester & Crenshaw in Inglewood, CA.  As we sat at the bus stop at that location an Inglewood Police Officer happened to board the bus as we sat there.  At first I wasn’t alarmed until I happened to look at the face of this man.

IT WAS INGLEWOOD OFFICER ALVARO RUIZ #884!

Now let me explain to you real quick who Officer Ruiz is.  Officer Ruiz is one of the 5 male officers who helped assist in my battery on the night of April 6, 2007.  He is one of the 2 officers who claims he was holding down my upper back, trying to prevent me from standing up.  What was crazy about seeing him on this particular day was the fact I had ALL my legal documents with  his name written on them in my possession, making my whole body go into a state of shock upon the realization of who he was.

It had only been 2 months since I had to actually see him face to face, which was when he came to Part One of my Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) appeal as a witness, September 15th, to lie on me in hopes of making sure my employment with them is not reinstated.

However, what’s ironic is that when my Criminal Attorney  subpoenaed Officer Ruiz  in January of this year to testify at my trial, he showed up and informed her that he DID NOT recall what happened on April 6, 2007 therefore he could not really testify to it.  But fast forward 8 month, Ruiz all of a sudden gets hit in the head with the MEMORY BUG.  He was at my LAPD appeal giving descriptive details about April 6, 2007 in direct contradiction with what he had stated earlier this year.  You’d be amazed to know this man was able to bring back his whole lapse of memory on this one particular day.  I found that to be extremely odd but given the fact I have witnessed police officers lie repeatedly under oath, nothing is a big shocker anymore.  This is what they seem trained to do!

Now going back to the bus incident, Officer Ruiz entered the bus and said something to the bus driver and then exited.  He proceeded to walk alongside the bus and stopped right alongside my window.  That is when I was clearly able to see his name tag to verify it was him & I snapped this photograph of him above.  Talk about being totally scared & paranoid!  What are the chances that one of the 5 cops who assaulted me would board a bus I’m riding?   I believe in coincidences but this ain’t one I believe in…………

So instead of just sitting there once the bus got moving again, I approached the bus driver to ask him what Ruiz said to him.  (Paranoia at its best)  He informed me Officer Ruiz asked him if there were any trouble makers on the bus, he told him no, & that’s when he exited.   That seemed mighty fishy to me & that is why I had to write about it just so you all would know what’s going on in my world.

The Fight for Justice must go on; I just gotta keep My Eyes Open!!!

Fictitious Business Name – Doing Business As: BatteredByPD

Cherise Rogers has now Registered the name Batteredbypd.

Nov. 2nd – Election Day is Here

Well the time has come for us to once again head to the polls to cast our good ‘ole American vote.  This is a very important election for us here in California; we have a lot at stake.

First and foremost we are electing a new governor, thank God Schwarzenegger is about to be outta here.

The two candidates running for Governor this year are Jerry Brown (Democrat)  & Meg Whitman (Republican).

Let’s just say Whitman IS NOT getting my vote!

However the most important vote for me goes to the State Attorney General position.

It’s important to me due to the candidate running on the Republican side: Los Angeles County District Attorney STEVE COOLEY!

Oh NO!!!!!  Not COOL at all!!! NO COOLEY!!!

This is the same man who has allowed his District Attorney’s office the opportunity to maliciously prosecute me for over 3 1/2 years, taking me to court 63 times on a  misdemeanor case which they all know is full of LIES.

This is the same man who has allowed his office to take me to trial 3 times, spending hundreds of thousands of YOUR TAX DOLLARS while adding additional charges on me 3 years later just to hedge their chances of winning at least 1 trial…after they see their case is too WEAK to stand a chance at a conviction!

This is the same man who is using his political power to help his KNOWN buddy, High Ranking District Attorney Janice Maurizi, protect her LYING ABUSIVE SON,  Los Angeles County Sheriff Detective Chris Maurizi get off with assaulting women on the job.

This is also the same man who sent his daughter, Shannon Cooley, to represent against me at court appearance #61 this past June when I was supposed to turn myself in, I guess to send a message that he has the power….At least that’s what I took from it.  What other reason would his daughter have to be at my hearing representing against me the day I was supposed to get locked up???  Not for support!!!!!

These are just a few of my PERSONAL reasons COOLEY should NOT be elected as our State Attorney General.  He has shown me he is corrupt and will only look out for himself & his fellow comrades when he has too….even if that means RUINING INNOCENT PEOPLES LIVES in the process. He doesn’t care!! He’s an all for self type of guy that I can’t see helping our state out at all!

And it wasn’t a coincidence the City of Bell Scandal got exposed right before this election.  Cooley was informed of the scandal a year and a half ago but neglected to do anything about it….WHY?? Because he had to wait until Election Season was here of course…so he could act as if he was the hero saving the day!!!

Oh it’s to be noted alot of Law Enforcement agencies in California endorsed Cooley.  Wonder why? Because once he gets in office, he will PROTECT cops at all costs…

KAMALA HARRIS FOR CALIFORNIA STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL!!!!


Another important issue being voted on is PROP 19, the legalization of being in possession of less than an ounce of marijuana if over 21 years of age.

Most people know how I am voting on this, specifically because my case revolved all around me inadvertently being in possession of 0.3 grams of marijuana.  That small amount of marijuana is why DETECTIVE CHRIS MAURIZI claims he pulled me out my car at 1:30AM on April 6, 2007 without a reason. He stated that he saw this marijuana when he 1st approached my vehicle but didn’t want to tell me he saw it because he thought I was going to try and destroy it so instead he says nothing & pulls me out the vehicle at 1:30AM all while I’m unaware of what’s going on. (That’s the fabricated story he wants everyone to believe…Maurizi never saw any marijuana until after I was pulled out the car, thrown to the ground, assaulted by 5 men, choked, & pepper sprayed twice….It was then that my car was searched & he found the marijuana cigarette, not in the beginning of the traffic stop (That I was found NOT GUILTY of)  as he’d like you to believe.  But he used the marijuana as his excuse so he could say he had PROBABLE CAUSE to pull me out my car….LIAR!)

And this is one of the many reasons I am voting YES on PROP 19.  After doing research, Blacks & Latinos are getting screwed over by the system at a much higher rate than Whites, all for being in possession of less than an ounce of marijuana & I’m sick of it. Sick of the Injustice!

So with that said YES ON PROP 19!!!!!

HAPPY VOTING FOLKS….LET’S SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT!!!

STAY TUNED……………………

My Life Has Been Ruined Behind Police Lies

I decided I need to share with the world how this whole case full of lies has completely ruined my life.  While these lying officers have got promotions & moved on in their lives,  nearly 4 years later, my life is at a complete standstill due to this case & me trying to seek the justice I very well deserve!

Even with my bachelors degree, I can’t even get a minimum wage job because they tell me to come back after the misdemeanor is cleaned up.  I’m being treated like a felon or someone who really committed a heinous crime.  This is crazy!   The fact this was my first ‘iffy‘ arrest ever, one would think it wouldn’t effect my life the way it has but hey, we were all in for a shocker!

Once you get in the system, your life is pretty much screwed.  It doesn’t even matter if the cop is a liar, all the cop has to do is say it happened & get his fellow comrades to cooberate the story & then your life is FOREVER screwed behind it.

Just thought I’d share that info real quick….Thanks for reading!

The Fight must go on until Justice is served!!!!

Sentenced to Jail & Currently Out on Bail!

On June 7, 2010, Cherise had to turn herself into the courts stemming from her convictions on April 14, 2010: Guilty on 2 counts of Resisting Arrest with a 60 day county jail sentence plus 3 years of probation attached. Cherise filed an appeal and was allowed to stay out on bail pending the appeal process. Her bail was $10,000 & it was posted as soon as she went into custody.

To be allowed out on bail however, the judge was reluctant to allow this to happen.   For some reason he felt like this wasn’t allowed until he was provided the proof that Cherise had a right to stay of of jail pending the appeal process.  Her attorney had to bring in this proof:

CA Penal Code 1272. After conviction of an offense not punishable with death, a defendant who has made application for probation or who has appealed may be admitted to bail:

2. As a matter of right, before judgment is pronounced pending application for probation in cases of misdemeanors, or when the appeal is from a judgment imposing imprisonment in cases of misdemeanors.

If her attorney would not have provided this Penal Code, the judge was going to refuse the request & mandate Cherise to serving the 60 days in the County Jail.

This appeal is stemming from the Nightmare Experience Cherise Rogers experienced on April 6, 2007.

DOES CBS2/KCAL9 NEWS REALLY PRACTICE TRUE PUBLIC SAFETY — DO THEY TRULY CARE ABOUT THE COMMUNITY THEY SERVE?

Earlier this year Cherise R. wrote a letter to Kcal9/CBS2 news regarding a story they had reported regarding police impersonators pulling over people.

http://cbs2.com/video/?id=126571@kcbs.dayport.com

She did not agree with the advice that was given so she decided to write them a letter and see what they had to say about her concerns:

Dear Kcal 9,

I’m writing this letter in response to a story Rita Garcia reported today, February 4th, 2010, regarding 2 phony police officers pulling people over in Pasadena.  Upon listening to the female officer give pointers on what to do when being pulled over by an officer, I felt like her description & details were not accurate in today’s day & time to say the least.

Being a woman who was pulled over in the middle of the night a few years back, I had a totally different experience than what this female officer describes should happen.  As she makes it seem, you can simply question these officers as they approach your vehicle (real or fake), primarily the real ones.  However, the police these days don’t like being questioned, particularly speaking of the inner city areas, as to which I live.  All these officers/deputies DEMAND is that you cooperate with what they tell you, while you remain a voiceless being.

Speaking firsthand from experience, Yes, I was pulled over by a REAL Los Angeles County Deputy (however at the time I didn’t know that), but he simply came to my car door and asked me to step out the vehicle.  Being I was alone, and it was the middle of the night (1:30 AM), I was scared for more than one reason.  I simply asked him what did I do and Why I was being stopped and asked to get out the car? But he ignored my questions as if I had NO RIGHT to know why I am being asked out of the car in a bad neighborhood, with no other people around us.

So the problem I have with the female officer in this recent report is that alot of the REAL officers/deputies that are out patrolling OUR streets have an AUTHORITY issue!!  They have a ‘DON’T ASK ANY QUESTIONS’ type attitude that leaves you as a civilian feeling helpless in the given event you are leary on the stop.  As the female officer stated, any legitimate officer will have something to ID his agency or a name tag…..but what do you do when these REAL POLICE don’t like answering YOUR questions???  That is NOW the question I am asking???

Thanks for your Time,

Response given:

Ms. Rogers,

Thanks for your email.  We certainly understand your point of view.  Law enforcement also gives the advice that in a situation such as the one you describe, to make sure you pull over in a well lit area, where there may be other people around.  As for the specific incident addressed in your email, if you feel that you were not treated properly, we would advise you to file an official complaint with the LA County Sheriff’s Department.

Thanks again for your email, and thanks for watching.

Sincerely,

Paul Button
Assistant News Director

Now, not too pleased with this generic reply received, Cherise wrote Mr. Button back, hoping he would understand that this is an epidemic in our community that needs to be addressed ASAP:

Thanks and I appreciate your reply back but I expected a little more than this generic reply.  I have filed my complaint already with the LA Sheriff’s and have been fighting a case for nearly 3 years.  Maybe if you have time you can check out my blog regarding the situation at hand. https://batteredbypd.wordpress.com

However, I wrote your station with the hopes that you will enlighten our community of the other side of Law Enforcement, the darker side.  I know law enforcement gives the advice to pull over in a well lit area, but once again I’m not referring to the All American Officer as to which you are referring to. That was the MAIN point in me taking the time to write you.  Also in the situation I described, there were no people around at 1:30 AM so that advice does not work all the time either.

So what I’m asking for is there to be an investigative report on this matter at hand.  I see you report on helping the community on recognizing Fake law enforcement, but what about those that are the real deal, yet ABUSE their AUTHORITY??

That is what I’m asking of your station!!  So let me know where you stand on that concept please?

Thanks for your time and Hopefully your concern,

After 5 days of waiting for a response from Mr. Button, Cherise wrote him again, just in case he may have OVERLOOKED the initial email:

Mr. Button,

Not sure if you didn’t get my reply email last week or if you just simply ignored it, but I have been patiently waiting on a reply. Thanks.

Still Waiting,

Mr. Button got this email & responded as such on February 10, 2010:

Ms Rogers,
We will take a look at the information you forwarded us.  We will contact you further if we are going to pursue this..
Thanks
Paul Button
So that is where we stand & that is where CBS2/Kcal9 News left Cherise Rogers standing.  I guess they did not feel the need to investigate such a matter that has become a growing epidemic within our communities.  So much for Community Awareness of the TRUTH I guess!

A Meeting With the Sheriff…….The Man in Charge

Above is a picture of Head Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca & Cherise Rogers (Victim of Police Brutality at the hands of his deputies).

This picture was taken on June 7, 2010 at a Community Forum held by NAEJA (National Association for Equal Justice in America) in Compton, CA which was dealing with the topics of Police Brutality, Police Misconduct, Improving LA County’s Men’s Central Jail, etc……This was the same day Cherise had to turn herself in & bail out of jail pending the appeal she filed against her two April convictions: 2 counts of Resisting Arrest.
