COPY THE LETTER BELOW AND EMAIL IT TO THE PEOPLE ABOVE

 

Dear Attorney General Harris:

 

I respectfully request that the California Attorney General’s office begin an independent investigation into the case of Mitrice Richardson.

 

Ms. Richardson was a 24-year-old African American college graduate who was taken into custody by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies for possession of  small amount of marijuana and failing to pay a restaurant bill in Malibu in September 2009. After her release from a remote LASD substation (Malibu/Lost Hills), Richardson went missing for 11 months — until her naked, semi-decomposed remains were found in a rugged canyon just eight miles from the station and, according to the coroner’s office, moved in breach of protocol. The coroner never saw the remains as they were found. Because the scene was compromised and no evidence was collected even by LASD, Richardson’s cause of death is undetermined. The body was recently exhumed for reexamination, but the results have not been shared with the decedent’s family or the public.

 

A recent article in the September issue of Los Angeles magazine (“What Happened to Mitrice Richardson?”), chronicles the LASD missteps that led to Richardson’s demise, and the department’s many discrepancies—and in some cases, outright lies—in explaining those events.

 

The article, which has garnered a great deal of media attention, also points out the how the department’s watchdog agency, the Office of Independent Review, failed to adequately investigate LASD’s handling of the Richardson case.

 

L.A. County’s Board of Supervisors has agreed to pay Richardson’s parents $900,000 for a wrongful death suit filed against them. But several questions remain unanswered. For example:

 

• Why did the sheriff’s station free Richardson despite several accounts of the young woman displaying the sort of odd behavior that would normally warrant psychological evaluation?

• Why did the station—the same one that gave Mel Gibson a ride to his car after he was freed on drunk driving charges—turn Richardson loose even though her car had been impounded and she had no money or means of transportation?

• Why did the station captain keep the jail-cell video of Richardson in his desk drawer for nearly four months while denying its existence?

• Did the deputy seen leaving the station behind Mitrice (captured on video) see or speak to Richardson?

• Why were Richardson’s remains both nude and partially mummified?

• How did Richardson, a young woman from the city, end up in an exceedingly rugged canyon with no roads or trails nearby?

• Why did sheriff’s personnel remove her remains from the scene rather than follow protocol and wait for the coroner’s office to investigate?

• Why has some potential evidence still not been collected from the canyon where Richardson’s remains were found?

• Why hasn’t the case been deemed a homicide?

• Why, in an October 2010 meeting, did Lt. Michael Rosson and Captain David Smith tell Sheriff Baca that Richardson’s remains were moved because they were completely intact, when in fact one leg was several feet from the body, the head and body were not connected?

•Why hasn’t LASD posted a reward on LACountymurders.com for information in the case, as Sheriff Lee Baca promised to do on December 29, 2010?

In summary, I believe that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and its watchdog, the Office of Independent Review, have failed to properly investigate and monitor the Mitrice Richardson case, and, given their mistakes and discrepancies, can no longer be trusted to do so.

 

I respectfully ask that the California Attorney General’s office take over this case so that questions can be answered and justice can be served.

 

Sincerely,

 

Your Name and Hometown here

Steve Cooley Lost the Election for State Attorney General!

Well, I got 2 of my wishes granted in this past November election, with the most important wish being that Los Angeles County District Attorney STEVE COOLEY (Republican) lose the race for State Attorney General & he did!!! He actually conceded the day before Thanksgiving, so I can say I am truly Thankful for that! 🙂

San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris (Democrat) took home the VICTORY!

It took a full 3 weeks to get the final results & boy oh boy was I relieved, excited,  ecstatic & full of laughter all in one!  I think I did a flip when I learned this Great news.

What makes this such a funny story to me, is the fact Mr. Cooley, the egotistical & arrogant man that he is, declared Victory on election night.  Giving us an early victory speech only for him to wake up the next morning & see he was no longer in the lead.

That was so HILARIOUS & a one of a kind move only a man like Cooley could make!!! I’ve never heard anyone give an early acceptance speech only to find out in the end they lost! That must make him feel pretty low as a human being if I must say so myself.  And I’d guess he does feel pretty low & that’s why he did not attempt to show his face upon his loss.

A man who is quick to jump the gun when he ‘thinks’ he is a winner but hides behind his campaign team when he ‘knows’ he lost tells you the type of man he is! That move alone tells alot about this man named Cooley. He’s just not as COOL as he thought.

In his written concession speech he stated,

“I take great pride in the fact that I received the endorsement of every law enforcement organization in this race as well as that of every major daily newspaper in California but one.”

I bet you do take pride in that Steve.  That’s because you help cover-up the wrongdoings of all these rogue cops out here who are running a muck.  They all know they can count on you to make sure they never get found at fault for all these unjustified homicides, excessive force cases, acts of misconduct etc.  And being you are a crook yourself, who is out here trying to line your pockets at the public’s expense (Double Dipping), you were the man they saw fit for the job…. but THANK GOD you were not selected!!!  🙂 California has spoken!

You are now officially a LOSER, Steve!  How does it feel to know you couldn’t pull this win even though you were very confident you could?? I’m curious.

Now us Angelenos have to deal with Cooley in the District Attorney’s Office until 2012 & that is when we can officially say,

‘GOOD RIDDANCE COOLEY, YOU ARE NO LONGER WANTED HERE! SAYONARA!!’

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……………………
