Dates That Have Great Significance To The Understanding Of My Case

Throughout my plight with this case, I have noticed quite a few days in my fight that are dates of important significance, giving me the ability to understand some things easier as well as providing me the Strength to KEEP UP THE FIGHT!! I see these things as signs:


April 6, 2007 was Good Friday, the day I was BATTERED, FALSELY ARRESTED, & LOCKED AWAY IN A CELL. For those out there that are Christian believers, as I am, know Jesus was BEAT, NAILED to the cross, TAKEN AWAY & put into the TOMB on Good Friday…..and just when the enemies thought HE was DEFEATED, HE ROSE 3 days later!!! Relating this to my situation, God told me near the beginning of this case that JESUS’ 3 days would equate to MY 3 YEARS, and that’s when I would RISE from this situation, so………..  APRIL 6, 2010…Here We Come!

January 15th is MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.’s Birthday and in 2008, it was the day LAPD fired me due to the FALSE ALLEGATIONS posed against me by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. Two years later, January 15, 2010, I ironically began to pick my jury for the start of my 2nd trial, fighting the remaining 4 charges against me – The D.A. added an extra resisting arrest charge on this same day, taking me from three to four charges all of a sudden after 2 1/2 years.   So as Dr. King once stated, “We Shall Overcome!” – It wasn’t by accident that each of these events happened to me on this day….This let me know I will Overcome!!

June 3, 2008 was the day Barack Obama won the race to become the FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE. This was also the SAME day the 3 charges – 2 counts of battery on an officer & the 1 count of resisting arrest – were DISMISSED by the PRETRIAL JUDGE before my first trial. Leaving me with a reckless driving charge & a possession of less than an ounce of marijuana charge. This just gave me the MOTIVATION to keep FIGHTING & know that a CHANGE can come.

June 16, 2008 was Tupac Shakur’s Birthday and was also MY TRIAL VERDICT DAY at a court location known for its HIGH CONVICTION RATES with cases against the POLICE……where I was found NOT GUILTY on the RECKLESS DRIVING CHARGE. Now for those who know anything about Tupac, know he couldn’t stand the police nor police injustice, so I found it INTERESTING the jury found DEPUTY MAURIZI to be a LIAR and I had the reckless driving charge I was FALSELY ACCUSED of DROPPED on his birthday.

January 27, 2010 was the end of my 2nd TRIAL, where I had a HUNG JURY on the 4 FALSE charges posed against me. (More detail on this to come) This was the same day MICHAEL JACKSON got burned during the Pepsi commercial in ’83 as well as the same day President Obama gave his State of the Union Address saying, “We’ve finished a difficult year..But a new year has come…..I don’t quit. Let’s seize this moment” So I took this to mean, even though I was close to the flame, & they (the police) tried to burn me, I’m not giving up, I must keep up the FIGHT!

———————————————————————————————–

So far this is what I’ve come up with.  To some people, these dates may mean nothing, but to me I feel all these dates of significance mean something important.

I’m Fighting until there is no more Fight in me….and I don’t see that being anytime soon!!

“NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER”

New Trial Date is Now Set For November 16, 2009

Last time I wrote, trial was to begin October 29th, but when I got there it was postponed until November 16th due to LAPD’s failure to provide my attorney with the audio recordings of the 5 officers statements regarding the incident that occurred April 6, 2007.  The 5 officers involved in this incident spoke individually to Internal Affairs with LAPD, providing them with their side of what happened that night.  They told so many lies leading to me being discharged from my employment with LAPD, that my lawyer needs these audio recordings to IMPEACH these suckers on the stand!!!

The main necessity of the tapes is to prove INGLEWOOD PD was involved that night.  During my criminal case, Inglewood PD has been trying to act like they were not a part of the arrest now that is has come this far.  Inglewood claims they didn’t write a police report or anything of the sort regarding them putting their hands on me on that night!  They are trying to weasel their way out of this case but they seem to have forgotten they gave a lengthy description of the incident to my employer leading to my DISCHARGE.  So if they could tell all those lies to my job to get me fired, I need them to go ahead and get on the stand and tell those same LIES  and explain how they didn’t go back to the station and do a write-up of their involvement with me that night!  They did no write-ups at all, but when interviewed by Internal Affairs 2-4 months after the incident they were able to detail everything that occurred!! STRANGE!!

How could that be if they had no report to reflect on???  Is it common for an officer to recall blow for blow what happened on an arrest 3 months after it happened and they had no report written to at least refresh the memory!!!  HMMMMMMM

This showed me that all 5 OFFICERS got together to make up this story & they memorized it for the very purpose of being interviewed.  All I know is tomorrow is my set trial date again & it’s time for them to start shaking in their BOOTS!!

Cherise is still here to get her JUSTICE no matter how long it takes!!!

I’ll update you all when I come from court tomorrow!!

FINALLY, Trial is set to start OCTOBER 29, 2009

Trial has finally been set to begin on October 29th at Inglewood Courthouse  (2 counts of battery on police officers & 1 count resisting arrest)…a week from today!! I can’t wait!!  It’s been such a long wait to get to this point..so much for SPEEDY TRIAL…I don’t even know how they say you have a right to have one and it take 2 1/2 yrs to get to it!! I just don’t understand.  I just can’t wait to get this phase of my life over with.  I have been waiting patiently for the closure of this criminal case.  It seems like the more patience I exhibited, the more the DA’s office prolonged this case.  They really hoped I was going to give up & give in to their lies & false allegations!!  They were sadly mistaken because here I am still standing & still fighting!!

I am determined to be their worst nightmare since they had no problem becoming mine!!  I’m looking & seeking JUSTICE in all aspects of my life…

So I say to them…..’YOU PICKED THE WRONG ONE THIS TIME’….. They know I didn’t batter them but that they battered me!!  THE TRUTH IS SOON TO BE TOLD!!  I HOPE THEY ARE AS READY AS I AM!!

Current Update & Random Thoughts

Alot has went on since the last time I posted.  I’m sorry I don’t update as often as I should, but due to the ongoing nature of my case,  I am rather skeptical on what I should post.  But I can say that they have continued to try and make my life HELL!!!  As I have previously stated, the DA’s office is going hard on trying to get a conviction from my case.  It’s coming to the 2 1/2 year mark (October 6) since I started fighting this misdemeanor case and I have had my life stalled all because of these officers lies!!!

I’m currently unemployed, been this way since LAPD wrongfully fired me in January 2008 behind the Sheriff Lies,  and can’t seem to find a job at all (I’ve been blackballed).  Not only did this happen at the worst time (Recession) but it happened right when I was about to flourish in life since I had just graduated from college with my B.A. in Child & Adolescent Development.

I simply can’t understand how I am still in limbo on this case, and the City of LA claims to be broke!!  They have no problem spending nearly a MILLION DOLLARS on trying to prosecute me on misdemeanor charges for 2 1/2 years.

However, I see what their tactic is…They tried dragging this case out as long as they could, in hopes I would give up!!  They thought the longer they took with getting me to trial, I’d settle & just take a plea deal.  They wanted me to go broke, get tired & weary.  Well they have me HIGHLY mistaken!!  They have given me nothing but time to work on getting JUSTICE for me & my life!!!

I am making sure the LA SHERIFFS, INGLEWOOD PD, & LAPD all pay for the HELL they have put me through for so long!!

Cherise

The Corrupt Blue Line

The Corrupt Blue Line

You never know from day to day what tomorrow might bring.
You could go from prosperity, to losing everything.
A turn of events, though unexpected could change your life forever.
We all say “It won’t happen to me,” but trust me don’t say never.

I have to tell Cherise’s story. You might find it hard to believe.
But when you understand the truth, I’m sure that you will grieve
A magnificent girl of poise and beauty, she really had it all.
Education and a good job, but then there came the fall.

One night while driving home from work about two years ago,
The L.A. Sheriffs stopped Cherise. Why? We just don’t know.
There was no reason then or now or for what else they did do.
They beat Cherise and tortured her, till she was black and blue.

Was that the end? No my friend. The abuse was oh so wrong.
To protect themselves from prosecution, they sang a different song.
They made up lies that they were attacked, that force was necessary.
At one hundred and ten pounds, she’s just really not that scary.

For two long years they’ve drug this out, to disrespect her name.
She lost her job and lives in fear, and for this they show no shame.
To keep from crossing “The Corrupt Blue Line” her life they would destroy.
No remorse for what they had done, they live their lives in sinful joy.

In and out of court for months, Cherise has been made to go.
Now she waits for the judge to decide and finally let her know.
Will the judge be biased? or will justice at last prevail?
Justice says the crooked cops should all spend time in jail.

Through it all, I must say, I’ve really been impressed.
Cherise has kept her head up high while facing every test.
Always worried, always scared, but seldom letting on.
Jumping all the hurdles placed, meeting everyday head on.

I know she has shed a million tears, and believe me so have I.
You’d have to be a LA. cop or worse if it didn’t make you cry.
Whatever happens from here on out, I’m going to place my bet.
With God’s help, Cherise will prevail; she’ll be the winner yet.
