T-rack v. T-Spitzer

If you did not have the pleasure of seeing the dueling press conferences, you owed it to yourself to watch the panel discussion on KOCE. I'm still trying to digest the hyperbole from all sides. I should have an analysis worthy of a stinking badge shortly.

The DA Does It Right........ For Once

News Flash!!!! The most corrupt DA in California refuses to prosecute another political crony! News at.....

Seriously, for once, the DA is probably right. If there was an actual physical altercation between Norby and his wife, you can bet the police would have hauled his keester to jail. DV has no leeway. If an accusation is made and there is the slightest threat of evidence, then the police will drag you off to jail, if for nothing else than to let you cool off. Since Power Ranger Chris is still free to sleep on Sacramento's finest park benches, I would say this one was a good call.


So Nutmeg Whitman has managed to cull a few self-serving peace officer unions out for herself. It's a shame that they can't see the real ploy of divide and conquer. Wayne Quint, President of CCLEA, once threatened any association thinking of dumping all public employees for the sake of public safety with expulsion. I hope he still feels the same way. The union portrayed in the Youtube video (guess who?) is the same one that wanted to cut and run the last time pension talk got heated just a few years ago.

As we slide into the final days before the election, it is important to remember that we, as public employees, must stand together completely and not let them divide us for our own selfish gain. Oh yeah, and vote for Governor Brown.

Should Police Have to Play These Games?

This is the kind of stuff that the old Keystone Cops movie shorts were made of. You might expect this coming from some small town in the middle of nowhere USA. But, here in Orange County? Then again....

It seems some candidates in Los Alamitos, that Western-most city of the Real OC, are playing games with each other. It would be funny, but they are actually taking up the time of Los Al's small and overworked-as-it-is police department to put up with this stupidity.

If you haven't heard, the politics heated up in Los Alamitos over the weekend. It seems some candidates can't keep their hands off of other candidates property. One candidate, George Briggerman jr., is stupid enough to be caught on tape (later viewed by several hundred people) taking another candidate's sign and dumping it. Another candidate is stalked by a woman claiming to just be making sure he doesn't steal flyers of another candidate. He calls the cops because of the stalker and later the stalker calls the cops because he allegedly did steal the flyers. The cops come out but no one gets arrested.

Is this really what you want your police to be doing? Crime may not be rampant in Los Alamitos, but I'm sure their police department has better things to do than run around chasing people running for office and acting like they are running for middle school president. Come to think of it, even the kids know better than that. Oh, the video? here
