Goodbye 2010……2011 Here I Come!!!!

2011 - I will be coming to a Community near you!

2010 has been a very interesting & stressful year, the most stressful out of the 3 1/2 years I’ve been fighting this Misdemeanor case. 

  • They finally got 2 convictions out of me after having been maliciously prosecuted over & over & over (3 Trials).  They got just what they wanted on April 14, 2010 when I was found Guilty of 2 counts of Resisting Arrest (They added this 2nd Resisting Arrest charge on me the first day of my second trial, January 15, 2010, to hedge up their chances at a conviction).
  • Oh and the 2 Battery on Officer charges they originally had against me were dropped due to a hung jury. 
  • I also got put on 3 years summary probation plus ordered to pay fines & do some community service.

Aside from that, last month I finally had my appeal against the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for them Wrongfully Terminating  me as a Clerk Typist on January 15, 2008 behind this case full of LIES & False Allegations.  As of today, I await the results & should receive them in January sometime.

NOTE: At my LAPD appeal I had 5 officers testify against me: 3 Los Angeles Sheriff Deputies, One Inglewood Police Officer & the Los Angeles Police Department Captain who fired me.

So it is quite interesting how my life quickly changed all because of POLICE LIES.  Being I was new to the whole (in)justice system process, I was unaware of all the INJUSTICES that were currently going on around us everyday and it’s quite an epidemic.  I have become so intrigued with the topic of justice & demanding that everyone deserves it, that I have found myself engaging in more & more community events & activities revolving around police brutality, police misconduct, & police murders.  It’s time for people to stand up against the way law enforcement has been able to ruin so many INNOCENT peoples lives while they continue to move on with their lives with no discipline involved.  At the rate it’s going any & everyone is susceptible to police violence!

It’s a tragic shame that the people who are supposed to Protect & Serve the community have found a way to become the enemy by means of terrorizing people by force & intimidation, falsifying reports to cover up their wrongdoings, planting evidence, unjustified homicides, illegal search & seizures, & much, much more etc.  How are people supposed to have faith & trust in the Law when they clearly break it themselves?  Can you answer that???

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!!’

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

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!

My THIRD TRIAL Begins April 5, 2010…….They Will Stop At Nothing To Try To Get A Conviction!

Two months after my last trial ended with a hung jury,  I am set to begin my THIRD trial on Monday, April 5, 2010.  This is one day before the 3 year anniversary of when this whole nightmare began.  It amazes me that this much time has passed and yet I am still here fighting with all my might, FALSE criminal charges posed against me because the District Attorney’s office keeps refiling.  The District Attorney’s office has went the distance with this case, spending hundreds of thousands of TAXPAYERS dollars trying to prosecute me on something they know is NOT TRUE!  All in the efforts to cover-up the ABUSE & FALSE ARREST I endured April 6, 2007.

Being my case is full of misdemeanor charges as opposed to felonies, they expected me to plead guilty to get this whole thing over with, as statistics show so many people do.  I am letting them know they messed with the wrong person this time.  I AM NOT THE NORM!  I’m a survivor, no matter how hard they’ve tried to knock me down these last 3 years, I’m still STANDING TALL & I’M DETERMINED NOT TO FALL.

They not only beat me physically, but they have also tried their best to beat me economically/monetarily/mentally.  I’ve spent so much time within the court system these past 3 years, seeing an overwhelming amount of INJUSTICE going on, & I now make it my duty to stand up not only for myself, but for all those who have to suffer because of law enforcements use of  excessive (deadly) force & lies.   This is becoming a growing epidemic.  All you see and hear these days are police killing/injuring citizens for no reason at all, other than because they CAN DO IT & they can GET AWAY WITH IT!

I live in the inner city where gangs are prevalent,  however LAW ENFORCEMENT is the GANG I fear daily…the boys in blue, tan or black…whatever their color choice is for that department, I’m most leary of them.  From all angles, they have literally showed  me how crooked & corrupt they can be.  If they mess up, it seems it’s best for them to put the blame on anybody else but themselves.  Like in my case, they battered me yet in turn they claim I battered them, trying to cover-up their wrong doings, that’s their tactic.

Overall, I can’t wait for this trial to begin and end.  It amazes me this will be my third time having to testify in a criminal case.  But it also made my day knowing the District Attorney’s office has been reading my blog.  They let it be known at my last trial that they came across it….hmmmmmm.  Very Interesting!!  So to them I say:

Thanks for taking the time to read about how crooked & corrupt you all are.  Reading this blog can be a very therapeutic way for you all to see how you guys actually look & reflect to the public eye. Keep reading as I will keep posting!

Ok…last but not least, I need to state that Los Angeles County, District Attorney Steve Cooley is running for California State Attorney General this year.  We can not allow that man to RUN (RUIN) OUR STATE!!!  He can’t even control his crooked/corrupt District Attorney’s office so I can’t imagine what this state would be like with him having a little bit of power!! Yikes!!

No STEVE COOLEY!!!   No STEVE COOLEY!!!

Oh & also remember Detective/Deputy Christopher Maurizi, the deputy who pulled me over & began this lying/battery game, his mother is high- ranking Deputy District Attorney Janice L. Maurizi…….So you wonder why it’s so much corruption going on??  Wonder no more…this Mom is trying to protect her ABUSIVE, OVER AUTHORITATIVE son, as well as her OWN NAME, as well as STEVE COOLEY’S name….since he is running for a state office.  It’s politics,  they just thought I wouldn’t figure it all out.  THEY WERE WRONG!

(It’s to be noted that the ONLY reason I know about Jan Maurizi being the mother of this LYING DEPUTY, Chris Maurizi,  is because the District Attorney’s office tried to use her as an INTIMIDATION factor at the beginning of my case.  They asked my lawyer did we know who we were up against and advised that I might as well NOT FIGHT  because of who she was and her high ranks.)

They didn’t realize that would make me FIGHT harder! It’s time for the corruption & cover-ups to be exposed!

Until next time……………………………
