Trickle Down Corruption

I’ve held back a bit on this issue, but I’ve reached my limit here. I have had several people come to me now and tell me the CPOA board may have approved a 6 figure fund to support Laurie Smith’s re-election campaign, bypassing a membership vote for this expenditure. While I’m a supporter of law…

Roadside Assistance, May I Help You

I won’t say anything right now because I’m madly trying to verify an insane number of items that have come through the past week. If it wasn’t April 7th, I would swear I’m being punk’d for April Fool’s with some of this, it’s so out of the norm. Some may not be true, but if…

Why Go Back 25 Years?

  (Link) Mercury News: Candidates blast sheriff for unethical conduct over snatching IA tape Really people, one does not have to go back 25 years to find tangible evidence of Smith’s criminal corruption.

It’s always about the power, particularly the abuse of power. If anyone knows how to abuse power, it’s Laurie Smith. She could give PhD level presentations on the…

Smith for the fact she’s failed to review and updated her enforcement use of force policy for years despite 3 recent deputy involved shootings, one…

Cease & Desist. Oh yes, and RESIGN.

I was wondering what had Tracey Kaplan of Mercury News wildly backpedaling in a re-write about the claims Morrissey engaged in the use of deeply offensive racist terminology and conversations. I reached out to sources and was forwarded the attached file below. Seems Jethroe Moore, NAACP President of the Silicon Valley/San Jose chapter stepped in…
